Want fuller lips but not ready for lip fillers? Botox lip flip might be the perfect solution for you. It’s a 5 minute procedure without the downtime associated with fillers. No numbing required and the treatment is virtually pain free. Botox lip flip gently relaxes the muscle around the mouth, which then causes the upper lip to “flip out” a little bit, giving the appearance of fuller lips at rest and even more so when smiling. The results last about 6 weeks and the cost is a fraction of fillers.


Pros:

no downtime

cost effective

minimal discomfort

less invasive

results are subtle

reduces the appearance of a “gummy smile”

can help with “smoker’s lines” depending severity


Cons:

results are subtle (not for individuals who are desiring more volume)

longevity (6 weeks for botox vs. 6 months or more for fillers)

may result in difficulty drinking out of straws, whistling, or playing wind instruments (not recommended for professional speakers or professional instrument players)
