Lip Fillers Versus Lip Flip: Which One is Right for Me?

Lip fillers and lip flips via Botox®, are non-surgical injections that enhance your look so that you can have fuller, poutier lips that let you feel and look like a celebrity. Not sure which is right for you? Skin Vitality is here to help!

Lip Flip

A lip flip allows the upper part of your lip to relax and flip outward, which in turn creates the appearance of fuller and larger lips. When Botox® is injected into the orbicular muscle of the top lip, it relaxes the muscle and encourages the lip to flip outwards. It amplifies the natural shape of your lips without exaggerating, creating a very natural effect.

It is a very quick and easy procedure with very minimal to no pain, and lasts 3 – 4 months. A lip flip is a perfect procedure for those who notice that their top lip tends to curl in when they smile or talk and want a subtle difference to boost their confidence and provide a brighter, fuller smile.

Advantages of a Lip Flip:

    • No downtime
    • Quick treatment – less than 10 minutes!
    • Natural looking effects
    • Fixes gummy smile

Lip Filler

Kylie Jenner remains one of the most iconic users of lip filler and was responsible for a massive spike in the popularity of the procedure. Prior to the treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to your lips to reduce any discomfort that you may feel. Clear, hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the lips as well as around them. This gel contains a soft filler that creates the effect, as well as lidocaine to decrease any pain.

Filler instantly plumps your lips in both shape and size while simultaneously smoothing vertical lines around them, and the results are long-term, lasting up to a year of a consistent look. This is a perfect treatment for patients who are looking to receive long-term effects of plumping and hydration in their lips. To learn more about this treatment, watch the video below!

  • No downtime
  • Long lasting results – up to a year!
  • Immediate results
  • No illusion – it actually makes your lips plumper
  • Increase in lip volume is controlled
  • Hydrates lips & improves symmetry

So, which treatment is right for you? It all depends on your aesthetic goals! If you are looking for a subtle difference in the appearance of your smile and top lip, a lip flip is the perfect procedure for you. If you are seeking a fix for volume loss or you are looking for plumper lips over a longer period of time, lip filler can provide you with the fuller appearance you are looking for!
