Botox lip flip
Lip Flip:
The lip flip is a popular method to help shape the upper lip slightly outward and create the illusion of a fuller, poutier lip. It is a more subtle alternative to dermal fillers in the lips, with a much lower rate of complications. It is achieved using muscle relaxing injections. Here is an example of a typical lip flip experience (not treated here) to give you an idea of what it entails.


Preparation:
It is recommended that you apply some Emla cream or Numit cream to the area above your lips, 30 minutes prior to your appointment. This is because the peri-oral region is a sensitive area. We use ultra fine needles and vibration at GC Injectables, resulting in minimal pain - come and feel the difference!

The treatment explained:
The orbicularis oris is a sphincter muscle around the mouth that pulls the lips downwards and inwards. Relaxing the upper portion of the orbicularis oris results in a slight outward shape to your upper lip. The lip flip treatment with anti-wrinkle injections is a great way for patients to experience fuller looking lips without being as invasive as fillers. Another benefit of this treatment is that it softens the vertical perioral lines. A lip flip generally requires low doses between 6 to 10 units.

You will start to notice effects from around 3 to 5 days. The effects generally last 3 months. You may be unable to whistle or use a straw for the next few days following a lip flip. People who play musical instruments that require a certain mouth position may not like the feeling of the orbicularis oris muscle being relaxed.
