Gold Coast botox lip flip
Lip Flip:
The lip flip is a natural way to achieve fuller, poutier upper lips without fillers! It is one of our more popular treatments and a subtle alternative to dermal fillers, with much lower rates of complications. It is achieved using muscle relaxing injections to the upper lip. 


Preparation:
No specific preparation is required. Let us know if you have a history of cold sores, as you will need a script for antivirals from our doctor on the day. We use ultra fine needles and vibration at GC Injectables, resulting in minimal pain - come and feel the difference!


Cost:
A standalone lip flip starts from $78 with our nurse (or $150 with our doctor).
If you combine your lip flip with another area, there is a good discount (see our instant quote price calculator).

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 12 units of Brand X or Brand B.

You will start to notice effects from around 3 to 5 days. The effects generally last 2 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.
