Lip Flips

A lip flip is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that uses a small amount of Botox to enhance the upper lip. By relaxing the lip's muscles, it subtly curls outward, creating a fuller appearance without added volume.

About Lip Flips

Lip flips are an increasingly popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the lips, creating a fuller, more pronounced pout without the need for fillers. This minimally invasive treatment involves the precise injection of a small amount of botulinum toxin (commonly known as Botox) into the orbicularis oris muscle, which controls the movement of the lips. By relaxing specific parts of this muscle, a lip flip allows the upper lip to curl outward slightly, giving the illusion of a fuller lip without adding volume.

The beauty of the lip flip lies in its subtlety and natural-looking results. It's an ideal option for those seeking a more understated enhancement than what fillers might provide. The procedure is quick, usually taking less than 10 minutes, and the effects can last anywhere from 2 to 4 months. This makes it a convenient choice for individuals looking to experiment with the look of their lips without committing to the longer-lasting effects of fillers.

One of the key benefits of a lip flip is its ability to improve the smile. For some, a gummy smile is a concern, where a significant amount of gum is visible above the top teeth when smiling. A lip flip can address this by relaxing the upper lip, reducing its elevation when smiling and thereby minimizing the appearance of the gums.

Moreover, the procedure is relatively low-risk, with side effects typically limited to minor bruising or swelling at the injection site. It's an excellent option for first-timers in cosmetic treatments, offering a gentle introduction to the world of aesthetic enhancements. At Park Aesthetics, we ensure that each lip flip procedure is tailored to the individual's unique features and desired outcomes, emphasizing our commitment to natural, personalized beauty enhancements.

How long do the results of a lip flip last?

Are there any specific aftercare instructions for a lip flip?
After a lip flip, it's essential to avoid massaging or applying pressure to the treated area for the first 48 hours to prevent spreading the Botox to unintended muscles. Other aftercare instructions are minimal, with most patients able to return to their regular skincare and makeup routine immediately.

Can a lip flip be combined with other treatments for optimal results?
Yes, a lip flip can be combined with other treatments, such as lip fillers, for enhanced results. Combining a lip flip with fillers can increase lip volume while also improving the lip shape and reducing gum visibility when smiling. Your specialist can recommend the best combination of treatments based on your aesthetic goals.

How does a lip flip differ from lip fillers?
While a lip flip uses Botox to relax the muscles for a subtle enhancement of the lip's natural curve, lip fillers add volume directly to the lips through injectable hyaluronic acid. Lip flips offer a more subtle result, whereas fillers can provide a more significant increase in lip volume.

What is a lip flip, and how can it improve a gummy smile?
