Lip enhancement can be achieved in a variety of ways, ranging from filler products which temporarily plump the lips to surgical procedures which yield permanent results. Neurotoxin injection into the muscle of the upper lip relaxes the muscle and results in more of the red lip becoming visible. A lip flip is a simple, quick, and outstanding option for a youthful and balanced lip.

The lip flip is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic technique that uses neurotoxin, such as Botox®, injections near the upper lip in order to produce a subtly fuller and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
This procedure relaxes muscles in the upper lip through the effects of the neuromodulator botulism toxin, causing it to curve or "flip" upward gently. The subtle transformation creates a more defined cupid's bow and provides a slightly plumper, more full lip look. This approach is cost-effective, is an adjunct to fillers, and requires only a modest amount of product.
What can a Lip Flip do for me?
A lip flip procedure stands out as a quick, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment that is both easy to administer and comfortable. Opting for a lip flip is an excellent choice for those seeking a simple, subtle way to rejuvenate their lip appearance and gain:
Lip Fip vs. Lip Fillers
The primary benefit of a lip flip is that it provides a subtle and natural enhancement to the lips. It imparts a more pronounced cupid's bow without adding volume to the lips themselves. While lip filler can offer more dramatic results, it does come with significant swelling and can result in an overfilled appearance for some.
Additional Lip Rejuvenation Options
For enhanced results, there are a number of procedures that, performed in combination, can bring about excellent lip rejuvenation.
Lip Rejuvenation can significantly enhance the lips and make the face appear younger as a result.
Ideal candidates for a lip flip are individuals seeking a more defined and striking lip appearance without surgery. This procedure is particularly well-suited for those interested in exploring various aesthetic options, as it offers temporary results. Those who have had serious reactions to botulinum toxin type A or other neuromodulators in the past are not good candidates for this procedure.
Patients who are good candidates for the Botox procedure can choose to be treated the same day as the consultation.
During a consultation, we will discuss your specific aesthetic goals and decide together if a lip flip is the best option for you. Our expert injectors will provide a detailed treatment plan and inform you about any necessary preparations.
A complete treatment usually takes about 30 minutes and is a quick and simple procedure. During treatment, your skilled injector will inject a small quantity of Botox into the upper lip area. You might experience a brief and mild sensation of pressure or mild discomfort during the injection.
After the procedure, initial results should appear within a few days, but it may take up to two weeks to see the full effect. Most patients can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment with no downtime. Lip flip results typically last up to two to three months.

Lip flips are considered minimally painful by most patients, and typically, only mild discomfort is experienced.
This treatment is considered a safe alternative to lip augmentation surgery, but possible risks include redness or irritation at the injection site, along with the very rare but serious risk of allergic reaction.
For most patients, results last about two to three months.
Because the upper lip is more relaxed, a lip flip treatment can help lessen the appearance of a gummy smile.
The cost of a lip flip varies depending on how many units of Botox are needed. Typically, the cost is less than other Botox treatments since it is a very small treatment area.
