Think that dermal fillers are the only way to achieve flatteringly full lips without surgery? Think again! There’s a new treatment that uses wrinkle-relaxing injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport to augment the shape of your mouth. It’s called the lip flip. Keep reading to find out which one might be more your speed.
Subtly Enhance Your Lip Shape with a BOTOX Lip Flip
If you’re unfamiliar, the lip flip involves injecting a few units of a neuromodulator into the muscles around your mouth. It relaxes them enough to let the borders of your lips roll outward. This change gives the appearance of bigger lips simply by making more of your lips visible.
A lip flip isn’t going to give you dramatic or instant results. However, if you’re looking for a subtle improvement in the shape of your lips — and don’t necessarily want to look like you’ve had something done—, this treatment could be just the thing.
There are a few more benefits of the lip flip that are worth mentioning. It can keep your upper lip from disappearing when you smile and can also prevent too much of your teeth and gums from showing. Plus, since it only requires a few units of product, it can be a cost-effective approach to lip augmentation.
Keep in mind that BOTOX and Dysport don’t last as long as most fillers. So, if you’re looking for longevity, this option may not check all of the boxes for you. However, if you’re feeling non-committal, the lip flip could be a great choice.
Enjoy a Plump Pout with Lip Fillers
Fillers can help you achieve a wide range of cosmetic goals by adding volume directly to your lips. They can make your lips fuller, of course, but they can also add definition and correct asymmetry. Lip fillers can even be administered above the lips to correct vertical lines or enhance the cupid’s bow.
A great thing about lip fillers is that they are customizable. You can get subtle and natural-looking results with fillers or opt for something more noticeable. The improvement will also be visible immediately — though it will probably be more expensive than a lip flip.
Can You Combine the Treatments?
You can combine a lip flip with lip fillers! This is a great way for some patients to achieve their desired results. When used together, BOTOX or Dysport helps create a flipped lip shape while fillers add attractive volume.
