Often, wrinkles and fine lines can distract from your smile. Your upper lip may be disappearing as the corners of your mouth begin to turn up with age. If you would like to restore your youthful smile, a BOTOX® lip flip could help with that. At Enriched Aesthetics, we can provide high-quality lip flips that will leave you feeling confident again. Contact us to schedule a consultation so you can get started with your treatment. Read on to learn more about Botox lip flip treatments and how they can benefit you.
What Exactly is a Lip Flip?
During a lip flip, we use Botox to relax the muscles in your upper lip. This adds volume to your upper lip area, so you can have a fuller smile. We inject Botox into your upper lip so it can target the muscles that cause your upper lip to disappear. This treatment is minimally invasive and won’t take long to complete. Some patients even choose to do the treatment during their lunch break. Since Botox is a neuromodulator, it blocks the signal between your nerves and muscles, preventing your muscles from contracting and causing your smile to disappear.
We use Botox for a lip flip instead of a dermal filler. While dermal fillers are usually preferred for increasing the volume or adjusting the shape of your lips, Botox has a more subtle effect. If you are uncertain about using dermal fillers, a Botox lip flip is perfect to give you the natural-looking results you want. However, it is always best to discuss your desired outcome with us to determine which treatment is best. We have the skills and expertise to offer sound advice.
Can You Combine Lip Flip with Other Treatments?
Sometimes, to achieve your desired results, we have to use a combination of treatments. For instance, a lip flip can be paired with a gummy smile treatment. If you would like a volume boost in your lips, we can combine your lip flip with a dermal filler treatment. This is a great way to get the best of both worlds. Speak to us about a combined treatment, and we will recommend the best solution for you.
What You Should Know About a Lip Flip Treatment
Botox treatments take between 7-10 days for the final results to show. The treatments can be repeated every 2-3 months until the desired outcome is reached.
You should avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for at least four hours after the treatment.
Avoid spicy foods, hot water, or other things that may irritate your treated lips.
Keep your lips and the skin around them hydrated, and avoid harsh skin care products and exfoliants.
A lip flip will not alter the shape of your lips or add too much volume. Dermal fillers may be better suited for those effects. Lip flips will simply provide a subtle lip enhancement, making your upper lip more visible and prominent.
The Benefits of a Botox Lip Flip
Patients that opt for a lip flip enjoy a more defined top lip while reducing the appearance of lips lines and wrinkles. A lip flip also minimizes the visibility of your gums when you smile. If the muscles in your top lip are relaxed, your gums will be concealed while smiling. However, if this treatment still leaves you with a gummy smile, we can suggest a treatment to address this issue.
A Botox lip flip will also address the vertical lines above your top lip, smoothing out your skin and giving your face a youthful glow. If you are trying to reduce the signs of aging, this treatment will be perfect for you. Best of all, there is no downtime after this treatment. You can return to your daily activities right after the treatment.
What to Expect from the Treatment Session
Before you have the actual treatment, it is best to schedule an initial consultation so we can assess your medical history, desired outcome, and possible allergies. During this consultation, feel free to ask us as many questions as you need to feel at ease with the procedure. We are open to your concerns and questions and will ensure that you are thoroughly informed about lip flip treatments.
When it comes to your lip flip treatment, you can expect to be finished within 20 minutes. This treatment is ideal for those that are too busy for extensive beauty routines. Visit us during your lunch break for a quick and effective Botox lip flip. Since there is no downtime, you can return to work after the session. This treatment won’t cause major disruptions to your daily activities.
We understand that you are excited and eager to see the results of your lip flip treatment, but it may take a few days to become visible. While dermal fillers have immediate outcomes, Botox treatments work slowly to give you a natural-looking appearance. However, the results are well worth the wait!
In addition to that, you can expect your results to last a few months. This means you will only need to return a few times a year to maintain your results since the effects last 2-3 months.
