Botox Lip Flip vs Lip Fillers: Which is a Better Option For Me?

Many women desire plump and youthful lips, but not everyone who wants a fuller pout necessarily needs lip fillers to achieve the desired effect. If you are looking for subtle and natural-looking lip enhancement results, then a Botox Lip Flip might be right for you.

If you are looking to enhance the shape of your lips, but feel like lip fillers aren’t right for you, then you may want to consider Botox injections is a quick procedure called a lip flip.

What is a Botox lip flip?

A Botox Lip Flip, as the name implies, involves using Botox injections to enhance the upper lip. Just a few injections to the upper lip will allow it to relax and roll slightly upwards. This is an excellent alternative to lip fillers for patients who want:

  • A more subtle enhancement
  • A shorter-term lip enhancement option
  • To enhance the shape of their upper lip with minimal effort and low costs

What Is a Botox Lip Flip?

A Botox lip flip involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the muscle situated just above your upper lip. This temporarily relaxes the muscle, causing it to roll up slightly, creating a more defined and full shape that won’t disappear when you smile.

In addition to this, Botox can also smooth out any vertical lines that develop around the lip for smoother and more youthful looking skin in that area.

Botox Lip Flip vs Lip Fillers: Which is Better?

A Botox lip flip has different goals than a lip enhancement with lip filler injections. Whereas fillers are used to add definition and volume to both lips, Botox provides a subtle enhancement to the upper lip, without adding any volume.

While the Botox lip flip does give the appearance of a fuller upper lip by rounding out the shape of the lip, it is NOT designed to increase fullness.

A Combination of a Lip Flip and Lip Fillers

In many cases, a combination of the Botox lip flip and fillers can provide an overall improvement to the shape, definition, and volume of the lips for a lovely look and fuller smile.

How long with the results last? A lip flip can last for 3-4 months. Typically, lip fillers last an average of 6-8 months, so you can expect to come in for a Botox touch up between lip filler appointments.

4 Benefits of a Botox Lip Flip

If you are considering a Botox Lip Flip, here are some of the benefits you can expect from this innovative cosmetic treatment:

  1. A subtle enhancement. You will be able to enjoy natural-looking and subtle results, with the biggest improvement when you smile.
  1. It doesn’t add volume. This makes it a great option for patients who are happy with the overall size of their lips, but want to improve the shape.
  1. Corrects a disappearing upper lip when smiling. Fillers don’t always improve a gummy smile because this is caused by muscle movement and not lip size. When Botox relaxes that muscle, it’ll prevent your lip from rolling up when you smile.
  1. Great results without any downtime. While you may have small bruising at the injection site the first day, or experience some soreness, these side-effects are short lived and you can return to your daily activities almost immediately.
