The Botox Lip Flip

What Is A Lip Flip?

Botox can be used to slightly shape up the lips to create a “poutier look.” When used alone, or in combination with fillers, Botox gives lips a subtle pout-magnification by flipping out the lip line, rolling the lip gently outward, and giving the appearance of a fuller, sexier pout.

Keep in mind, though, that filler and Botox are not the same, and do not bring the same results. Filler adds volume, which makes the lip appear larger by literally making it bigger, while Botox relaxes muscles around the mouth, called the “orbicularis oris,” and rolls the lip outward (i.e. “flipping” it), creating the illusion of a bigger lip — without the added volume.


How It Is Done

For the Botox Lip Flip, Botox is strategically injected into sections of the orbicularis oris to target only the superficial layers of the muscle at the side of the upper and lower lip to relax the muscle fibers enough to flip the lip outward without affecting the function of the muscle.

The procedure takes just a minute or two to administer and results will be seen in 4-7 days.
