Botox: Lip Lift (Lip Flip)
As the name implies, the Botox lip flip involves using Botox to enhance the upper lip. Just a few quick injections can help the upper lip relax and roll slightly upward, which allows more of the upper lip to be visible. It is an excellent alternative to fillers for clients who want a more subtle enhancement than fillers provide, or for those who want to enhance the shape of their upper lip with minimal effort.
How does the procedure work: To perform a Botox lip flip, our Aesthetic Injector will make a series of injections just above the upper lip, into the orbicularis oris muscle, which encircles the mouth. Botox temporarily relaxes the part of the muscle over the upper lip, causing the lip to roll slightly upward so it appears more voluminous and defined. This muscle relaxation can also help smooth vertical lines around the lips.
Who is a good candidate: If you have always had thin lips or are self-conscious about losing fullness over time, a lip lift can help you achieve the look you want.
Recovery: No downtime required. Minimal bruising and swelling may occur resolving in a week or less.
