Smooth, Natural Results
Many patients who come to our office for a BOTOX® lip flip are self-conscious about the shape or size of their natural lips. BOTOX® is commonly used in the upper part of the face, around the eyes and forehead, for softening wrinkles—but it also has other, off-label applications for beautifying and adding balance to more areas of the face.
Unlike dermal fillers, which have a completely different treatment protocol that involves adding a soft gel to plump lips, BOTOX® is a nerve-signal-blocking injectable we can use to reduce tension in the muscles around the lips. This doesn’t make the lips physically larger, but it does create the impression of a fuller top lip by unfurling it slightly.
Full, youthful lips are always in style—and lip plumping is one of our most popular uses for dermal fillers. However, not everyone who wants their lips to look fuller necessarily wants or needs fillers to achieve their desired effect. Perhaps you want a very subtle result or a shorter-term option.
If you want to enhance your lips but feel like fillers aren’t your style, you might consider Botox injections in a quick procedure called a “lip flip.” Our injectable specialists have been getting requests for this lip enhancement option, and patients who try it love their results.
