Botox Lip Flip

Botox Lip Flip in Accra, Ghana

Botox is an incredibly popular injectable neuromodulator that’s most known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. But did you know it can also be used to make your lips look fuller, softer, and healthier?

Botox lip flip is a trending non-surgical procedure that’s become a beloved alternative to lip fillers. This natural looking lip enhancement technique has taken social media (and the world) by storm. 

How does it work? Cosmetic Botox targets a naturally occurring chemical messenger called acetylcholine and inhibits the release of this chemical. This neurotransmitter is what signals to your muscles to contract, which can produce the appearance of a gummy smile and a thin upper lip. 

When harnessed for lip augmentation, this relaxing effect causes your top lip to relax, making it appear as though it has flipped slightly upwards. This makes the injected lip look fuller and allows it to cover more of the gums that show when you smile.

Why Choose a Botox Lip Flip for a Cuter Kisser?

This more affordable alternative to lip filler doesn’t actually increase the size of either lip, but rather it allows your smile to reach its full potential.

Because Botox only relaxes your muscles and doesn’t necessarily add to your lips, results tend to look far more natural, an additional bonus for those who want a low-risk, subtle enhancement.

Can a Botox Lip Flip Be Used on All Skin Types / Skin Tones?

Yes. All complexions can benefit from cosmetic Botox in any form.

However, if you have concerns, speak with an injector who has experience treating patients with your specific skin tone and type.

What Does Botox Feel Like?

While it’s true that the lips are a more sensitive, vascular area of your face, that doesn’t mean your procedure will be painful. In fact, it’s not uncomfortable at all for the majority of patients. At most, you might feel a brief pinch followed by a sense of pressure.

A numbing cream or cold compress can be applied prior to the injection process if you’re particularly sensitive to pain or afraid of needles.

When Will I See a Botox Lip Flip Results?

A lip flip doesn’t produce immediate results like lip fillers do. You should see a difference within the first week of your appointment. It can take 10 to 14 days to see the full natural looking results of your treatment, so be patient.

How Long Do Lip Flip Results Last?

Botox is not a permanent solution for lip augmentation. Your results will last anywhere from three to four months on average. From there, you can decide if this subtle yet spectacular procedure is right for you. Maintenance is quick, easy, and relatively affordable.

How Many Times Can You Get a Botox Lip Flip, and How Many Treatments Are Needed for Sensational Results?

A lip flip only needs to be performed once every three to four months to maintain your results, meaning you should repeat your treatment about three to four times a year.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Your appointment should be completed in an hour or less in most cases.

The longest part is waiting for your topical anesthetic to take full effect if you choose to use one. The actual injection process takes 10 to 20 minutes at most. You will also be monitored for 15 minutes afterwards to make sure you experience no adverse reactions.

How Long Is the Recovery After a Lip Flip?

There’s no downtime after a lip flip. This is a very easy-going treatment. Aftercare is simple as well. 

Refrain from wearing lipstick or other lip products for three to four days, putting pressure on your lips, and sleeping face down. Be mindful when brushing your teeth, eating, and drinking. You can apply an ice pack to your lips to reduce side effects, if you experience any.

What Are the Side Effects of a Botox Lip Flip?

Minor swelling, bruising, sensitivity, numbness, and / or redness might occur, but they all typically resolve on their own within a few days.

Make sure you work with a qualified injector who is experienced with lip flips. If too much Botox is injected, it can relax your lips too much and make it harder to close them, resulting in drooling, drooping, and similar unpleasant side effects. Only a small amount of Botox should be used.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Lip Flip?

Nearly anyone who is healthy, over the age of 21, and wants to enhance their lips without using lip fillers or other lip augmentation methods can benefit from a Botox lip flip.

If you are pregnant, have a neuromuscular condition, are allergic to botulinum toxin products, or have an active infection in or around your mouth, then a lip flip isn’t recommended for you.

The only way to find out for sure whether you qualify is to book a consultation with a reputable cosmetic Botox injector. They’ll review your health history, current aesthetic, goals for treatment, and potentially a physical to determine eligibility.
