You’ve probably heard of Botox before – I mean, who hasn’t? – but what about a Botox lip flip? It’s the same Botox that’s been sweeping the nation for nearly 50 years, but it’s being administered in a way we’ve never seen done before – flipping the script on everything we thought we knew about Botox. 

First things first, what is Botox? Also known as Botulinum toxin-A, Botox is a prescription medicine that temporarily relaxes muscles in the face. It’s like that super chill friend who calms everyone’s nerves every single time they enter a room – the only difference is Botox rewards you with smoother and healthier skin. 

Botox is primarily used to correct dynamic wrinkles and fine lines in the face, but there’s a new treatment available today that has everyone flipping out (in a good way, of course). That said, we would like to formally introduce you to the Botox lip flip – a breakthrough treatment redefining how we use Botox. 

Lip Flip vs. Lip Filler: Should You Fill or Flip Your Lips? 

I know what you’re thinking – how does Botox go from correcting wrinkles to making my lips look fuller? Better yet, why would I need a lip flip when lip and dermal fillers already do that? We know you have a lot of questions about this new ‘lip flip’ concept, but don’t worry – we’re going to set the record straight.

  • What is a lip flip? During a lip flip procedure, Botox is injected into the muscles surrounding the upper lip. While it doesn’t add volume, it does add the illusion of volume by rolling the lip outward.
  • What is a lip filler? During a lip filler procedure, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is injected into the upper and lower lips to add volume and achieve the desired shape and look.  

If you’re looking for a more subtle, natural alternative to a lip filler, then you’re in luck – the lip flip is all that and more! The procedure only takes about 10-20 minutes (depending on the treatment area and desired outcome), and the results will last several months before they begin to wear off and eventually fade away.

**In general, a lip flip addresses lip position and lip visibility, while a lip filler addresses lip volume and lip shape. Don’t worry; our talented team at Avenue 1 Aesthetics can help you better navigate your options** 

Flip That Frown Upside Down With a Botox Lip Flip

Lip flips are all the rage today – giving men and women the opportunity to achieve the lips of their dreams without injecting hyaluronic acid into their lips or undergoing lip augmentation surgery. The results are more subtle than a lip filler or surgery, but sometimes a small, non-invasive touch-up is all we need in life.

If you’re still not convinced that a Botox lip flip is suitable for you, maybe these flippin’ benefits can change that: 

  • A subtle, natural-looking lip enhancement procedure
  • Make your lips appear plump and full without adding any volume
  • Can help address and reduce a ‘gummy smile’ 
  • A non-invasive, pain-free procedure that only takes 10-20 minutes
  • Outpatient procedure with little-to-no downtime or recovery period
  • Watch your confidence levels and self-esteem spike post-procedure
  • You can customize a treatment plan to achieve your desired look and feel
  • Results are temporary and reversible, allowing for flexibility and the ability to adjust
  • Address those dynamic wrinkles, fine lines, smoker’s lines, barcode lines, and more

One of the primary downsides of a lip flip is that the results start fading away in a few months – for reference, lip fillers generally last between 6 and 18 months. The good news is lip flips are incredibly inexpensive compared to lip and dermal fillers – it’s the quick flip your lips didn’t know they needed.

Gummy Smile? More Like Love-Me Smile!

Your smile is the gateway to your heart – it’s one of the first things a person notices about you and is one of the few things that can instantly transform the vibe in a room. While not everyone has the perfect smile, a Botox lip flip can help you feel a little more confident and comfortable in your beautiful smile. 

So, what is a ‘gummy smile?’ Also known as ‘excessive gingival display, a ‘gummy smile’ occurs when too much of your gum tissue (anything more than 4mm of visible gums) is exposed after smiling or opening your mouth. Most people are embarrassed by their ‘gummy smile,’ but don’t worry – we have a solution. 

Since a ‘gummy smile’ won’t improve on its own, the only way to correct it is through a dentist or cosmetic procedure. One of the most accessible, non-invasive treatments for a ‘gummy smile’ is a Botox lip flip – it takes just 10-20 minutes to turn that ‘gummy smile’ into a ‘love-me smile’ everyone will want!
