Lip Flip In Naples
Get Beautiful Lips Without Fillers
Have you been interested in trying lip filler? Wanting fuller, pouty lips but nervous about the cost or intensity of traditional lip fillers? A lip flip with Botox may be the option you have been looking for. But what is it and is it the right option for you?
A lip flip is a more subtle, quicker and short term option that uses Neurotoxin to ‘flip’ the upper and lower lip. A traditional lip filler uses Juvaderm, or Volbella, which can be more long term (8 to 12 months) and can create more density than you may desire.
The flip enhances your natural look with fuller lips. The concept is similar to how Botox is used as a dermal filler. The Botox allows the muscles of the upper part of your lip to relax and flip outward, resulting in the appearance of fuller lips. It is an easier injection than traditional lip fillers. It can also ease the vertical lines around the lips.
As we age, our faces begin to lose volume – leading to the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. This includes our lips. Lips start to lose definition, look less plump, and fine lines around our mouths start to form. Two popular treatments to help restore youthfulness back into our lips are Lip Filler, and the Lip Flip. But how do you know which treatment is right for you? Check out our breakdown below.
Fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane work to treat these fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume in the face. Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid fillers, which is a naturally occurring molecule found in our bodies. HA (hyaluronic acid) helps to restore moisture and volume to the skin. When filler is injected directly to the lips and Vermillion border, it creates volume and brings back definition, leading to a fuller, poutier lip while still producing a soft, natural appearance.
Alternatively, a new popular cosmetic treatment for the lips is the Lip Flip. The Lip Flip uses Botox or Dysport – which are neuromodulators (yes – the same Botox you get in your forehead!), to relax the orbicularis muscle in the top lip. By injecting Botox or Dysport in this muscle, the top lip is encouraged to relax and ‘flip’ outwards to give the illusion of a subtle, fuller lip. It is a popular choice for those wanting to correct a gummy smile, or for someone who doesn’t want to add volume.
