LIP FLIP INJECTIONS
Lip Flip in Shreveport and Monroe
Full, kissable lips are always in high demand, and achieving the perfect pout is as simple as getting a manicure during your lunch break. Lip plumping is among the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures and a very popular use for dermal fillers. However, fillers aren’t the only way to achieve fuller, larger lips.
Some patients want a less dramatic effect and some just want to try out a shorter-term option. (Fillers can last 6 to 12 months). If you want to augment your lips but don’t want to use fillers, you could try Botox injections for a quick treatment called a “lip flip.”
What is a Lip Flip?
Lip Flip vs. Lip Fillers
Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane treat fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in the face. Both are hyaluronic acid fillers, which is a naturally occurring chemical in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid aids in the restoration of moisture and volume to the skin. When the filler is injected directly into the lips and Vermillion border, definition and volume are restored, producing a larger, pouty lip that is soft and natural-looking.
A lip flip, on the other hand, is a newer type of cosmetic treatment for the lips. The popular procedure relaxes the orbicularis muscle in the upper lip with Botox injections into muscle, which causes the upper lip to relax and flip outwards, giving the illusion of a slightly larger lip. It’s a popular solution for those who don’t want to add volume to their lips but want to address the “gumminess” of their smile.
