BotoxⓇ Lip Flip
Do you shy away from looking in the mirror, or having your picture taken, because you would rather not be reminded about the state of your lips? Do you feel they are too thin, or even non-existent, causing low confidence and self-esteem? Are you too nervous at the thought of fillers being injected into your lips for a fuller appearance, but you are in dire need of a solution? If you answered yes to all of the questions above, then a BotoxⓇ Lip Flip facilitated by us here at LightTouch Med Spa and our Markham location could be in your best interest! Please read on to learn more about this new and exciting treatment, and if it is right for you.
What It Is
A BotoxⓇ Lip Flip is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting BotoxⓇ into the orbicularis oris, a muscle that surrounds the mouth and controls the movements of the mouth and lips. This injectable relaxes these surrounding muscles that control the lips, allowing the upper, and/or lower lips to flip outward, creating the illusion of fuller lips without affecting their functionality.
What It Can Treat
This treatment is a great way to enhance the appearance of your thin upper lip, to match your lower lip, to treat gummy smiles, or produce an aesthetic look you are striving for. A smile with excessive visible gum tissue, above the top teeth, is considered a gummy smile. By injecting BotoxⓇ into the double curve of the top lip, it relaxes the orbicularis oris muscle, allowing more of the lip to show, covering the upper gums in the process. Overall this treatment can help to bring out the full potential of your smile.
What Is The Difference
A BotoxⓇ Lip Flip enhances the appearance of your lips but does not actually add volume to them. The injection of lip fillers, on the other hand, is an augmentation treatment. This means that our medical practitioner will directly inject filler into the lips, using products such as JuvédermⓇ, StylageⓇ, and RestylaneⓇ, to increase the overall size of your lips. These brands use Hyaluronic acid-based products, a naturally occurring substance in the body that attracts and binds water molecules, to produce plumper looking and feeling lips. Over time the filler is metabolized and absorbed into the body.
What The Treatment Entails
A BotoxⓇ Lip Flip will usually take less than 30 minutes to complete. There is a lot less downtime involved for a Lip Flip over lip filler, so clients can get back to their daily routines almost immediately after receiving treatments. A lip flip creates the illusion of plumper lips, and is much more subtle than fillers, with results lasting three to four months. Fillers last anywhere between six months to a year. Some people enjoy getting the BotoxⓇ Lip Flip to experience what their lips would look like if they were fuller, before committing to a longer-lasting treatment such as lip fillers, or plastic surgery. Other times, clients will use a Lip Flip in conjunction with fillers, to produce the desired results, or to prolong the lifespan of fillers already in the lips.
