Are you team lip flip or team lip filler? The lip flip is like a little magic trick–with just a few Botox injections, your upper lip can be subtly enhanced, giving the appearance of a fuller pout without adding any extra volume. Lip fillers are the Beyoncé of lip enhancements–they add volume and definition to both the upper and lower lips, making a bold statement. While both procedures aim to enhance the appearance of the lips, they are two very different treatments. In this article, Faces Med Spa discusses the difference between a lip flip and lip filler.
What is a Lip Flip?
A lip flip is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment where botox is injected to flip the upper lip outward. It’s a simple procedure that involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the upper lip muscles, which causes them to relax and lift slightly.
A lip flip results in a subtle enhancement of the upper lip, giving the appearance of a fuller pout without adding any additional volume. The procedure typically takes 10 minutes to complete, and the effects can last up to two to three months. At Faces Med Spa, we recommend a follow-up appointment at 12 weeks.
What Is Lip Filler?
Lip filler is also a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves injecting hyaluronic acid-based fillers into the lips to add volume and definition. Unlike a lip flip, which focuses on the upper lip, lip fillers can be used to enhance both the upper and lower lips, and can be customized to achieve the desired level of plumpness.
The procedure typically takes around 15-30 minutes to complete, and the effects can last anywhere from six to 12 months, depending on the type of filler used. At Faces Med Spa, we recommend a follow-up appointment at six months.
What’s the Difference?
The main difference between a lip flip and lip fillers is that a lip flip is designed to enhance the upper lip by flipping it outward, while lip fillers are used to add volume and definition to both the upper and lower lips.
Additionally, while lip fillers can be customized to achieve the desired level of fullness, a lip flip is a more subtle option for those who want to enhance their lips without adding a lot of volume. Ultimately, the decision between a lip flip and lip fillers will depend on your personal preferences and goals.
