Have you heard of a Botox Lip Flip?

What is a Lip Flip Treatment?

The Botox Lip Flip involves the precise placement of a small dose of Botox along the upper lip muscle, near to the lip border, to relax and ‘flip’ the lip to make more of the upper lip visible. This creates a fuller, plumper, but natural appearing upper lip.

This is a great treatment option to reveal more of the upper lip and reduce a gummy smile. It is a less invasive approach to creating the illusion of fuller lips without adding a ton of extra volume. Additional injections to relax the muscles which are responsible for raising the lips when smiling, creating that ‘gummy smile’ appearance, can also help create a fuller looking lip. It enables you to work with your existing lip volume before deciding if you would like to add extra volume.

Botox Lip Flip treatment is generally cheaper than lip filler treatment making it a cost effective approach to lip enhancement with minimal downtime too. Results can typically be seen within 5-7 days.
