The world of cosmetic treatments and enhancements is always evolving, and one of the latest trends to hit the scene is the lip flip. But what exactly is a lip flip, and should you consider it? In this blog, we'll explore everything you need to know about lip flips.
What is a lip flip?
A lip flip is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a small amount of Botox into the upper lip muscles. The purpose of the injection is to relax the muscles to create an illusion of a fuller upper lip. This procedure is often a less invasive alternative to traditional lip fillers, which involve injecting hyaluronic acid or other dermal fillers directly into the lips.
How does a lip flip work?
During a lip flip procedure, we will use a tiny needle to inject a small amount of Botox into the upper lip muscles. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that control the muscles, causing them to relax and the upper lip to roll slightly outward.
The lip flip procedure has no downtime, and the entire procedure takes only a few minutes. You can return to your normal activities immediately afterward. The result of a lip flip is immediate and typically lasts around 4-6 weeks.
Is a Lip Flip right for you?
If you're looking for a quick, easy, and subtle way to enhance your natural lip shape, a lip flip is worth considering. You can also be a good candidate if your upper lip turns inwards/disappears when smiling. However, it’s important to have realistic expectations about the results of a lip flip. While it can create a subtle enhancement to the appearance of the lips, it may not achieve the same level of fullness as lip fillers.
Lip Flip Risk or Side Effects
It's also important to consider any potential risks or side effects before undergoing a lip flip. While the procedure is generally safe, some people may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site. Rarely, some people may experience an allergic reaction to the Botox injection. If you have a history of allergic reactions to Botox or any other injectables or a medical condition affecting your muscles or nerves, lip flip may not be the right treatment for you.
Ultimately, whether or not a lip flip is right for you will depend on your individual goals and preferences, as well as your medical history and current health status. Here at The Park MedSpa.
