What is a Lip Flip?

The lip flip is an innovative approach utilising anti-wrinkle injections applied to the lip’s edge. This method offers a subtly lifted look, emphasising the lips’ natural contour while adding a fuller, more defined appearance. It’s an ideal choice for those desiring a subtle yet impactful enhancement.

Lip Fillers vs A Lip Flip

Understanding the distinction between lip fillers and a lip flip is crucial. Lip fillers, composed of a synthetic hyaluronic acid, are used to volumise the lips directly. In contrast, the lip flip involves using anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles around the lips. This results in a ‘flipping’ effect, giving the illusion of fuller lips without adding volume.

Should I get a Lip Flip or Lip Fillers?

Many clients opt for a combination of lip fillers and a lip flip for a more dramatic and voluptuous result. The lip flip enhances the natural shape of the lips, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a subtle change or for individuals with thinner lips. It prevents the upper lip from thinning out or vanishing when smiling.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

Achieving a lip flip involves carefully placing anti-wrinkle injections at strategic points around the mouth and the cupid’s bow. This relaxes the top lip, allowing it to curl outward slightly. The effect is a more natural look compared to the fuller effect of traditional lip filler injections.

Is a Lip Flip Worth It?

As the festive season approaches, it’s the perfect time to consider the lip flip, either as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with lip fillers, for a well-defined, more voluminous pout. The benefits of a lip flip include a naturally pouty look, a quick and non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime.  When combined with lip fillers, the lip flip can significantly amplify the appearance of fuller, more luscious lips.

When Can I Expect Results?

The results of a lip flip treatment are visible on average between 3 to 8 days, with results lasting on average from 2 to 4 months. Because such a small amount of botulinum toxin injection is used in this treatment, a top-up treatment would generally be recommended around the 2-month mark – but everyone is different. 

How Much Does a Lip Flip Cost?

How much does a lip flip cost? The cost of a lip flip treatment at Restoration Medicine would usually fall between the price range of $132 to $198.
