THE BOTOX LIP FLIP

You have no doubt heard of the Lip Flip, but if you are like many people new to the Medspa world then you may not be quite sure exactly what it is all about.

What is a Lip Flip?

The Botox Lip Flip is a cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of Botox into the muscles around the lips to temporarily relax them, creating a subtle flipping effect showing more of your lips pinkish hue.

This treatment and its’ resulting effects can enhance the appearance of the lips by making them appear fuller, more defined, and more symmetrical.

Lip Flip vs Lip Filler

The Lip Flip is a popular alternative to traditional lip augmentation procedures, such as dermal fillers which create a fuller lip by injecting filler (Juvederm, Voluma, Kysse, Ultra, Revanesse etc) directly into the lip.

A Botox Lip Flip is great for someone who isn’t quite ready for lip filler and is just dipping their toes in to the land of injectables and is looking to start out small.

It is important to note that the effects of Botox lip flip are not as dramatic as traditional lip augmentation procedures and are intended to enhance the natural shape and appearance of the lips.

The Lip Flip Procedure

The Botox lip flip procedure is quick, taking only about 10-15 minutes to complete, and requires no downtime.

The Botox is injected into the muscles around the lips, specifically the orbicularis oris muscle, which is responsible for controlling the movement of the lips. By relaxing this muscle, the upper lip is lifted, creating the illusion of a fuller, more defined lip.

How long does a Lip Flip last?

The effects of Botox lip flip can be seen within 3-5 days and can last for up to three months. As with all Botox procedures, the results are not permanent and will require touch-up treatments to maintain the desired appearance.

How many units of Botox are used in a Lip Flip?

Everyone’s lips are different.  Size, volume, shape, symmetry is different in every client and therefore it will depend upon a number of variables to determine how many units of Botox are used. However, the average amount of Botox used in a Lip Flip is generally between 4 and 8 units which makes this a very affordable procedure.

 

Lip Flip Before and After

Botox lip flip is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that can enhance the appearance of the lips. It is a quick and non-invasive alternative to traditional lip augmentation procedures and is ideal for those looking for subtle, natural-looking results. If you are considering Botox lip flip, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced injector to ensure the best possible outcome.

Unlocking the Mental Health Benefits of Botox: How Injections Can Improve Depression, Anxiety, and Self-Esteem.

Unlocking the Mental Health Benefits of Botox: How Injections Can Improve Depression, Anxiety, and Self-Esteem.

Botox is most commonly known for its cosmetic benefits, such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, flipping a lip, or even helping people control sweating. However, recent research suggests that Botox may also have mental health benefits.

Battling Depression with Botox

One study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that Botox injections can improve symptoms of depression. The study involved 60 individuals who received Botox injections in the frown lines between their eyebrows. The participants reported a significant reduction in symptoms of depression after the injections.

Relieving Anxiety with Botox

Addressing depression isn’t the only mental health advantage that Botox injections may help.

Another study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research found that Botox injections can improve symptoms of anxiety in people. The study involved 30 individuals with social anxiety disorder who received Botox injections in the frown lines between their eyebrows. The participants reported a significant reduction in symptoms of anxiety after the injections.

Boosting Self Esteem with Botox

Botox may also help improve self-esteem and body image. A study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that individuals who received Botox injections reported improved self-esteem and body image compared to individuals who did not receive the injections.

Botox and the Brain

Botox also dampens negative emotions in people with borderline personality disorder, who suffer from extreme mood swings.

One way that Botox may help the brain and negative emotions is by reducing muscle tension in the face.

Studies have shown that when a person is experiencing negative emotions such as anger or sadness, there is an increase in muscle activity in certain areas of the face, such as the frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in these areas, which can reduce the physical manifestation of negative emotions.

Another way that Botox may help the brain and negative emotions is by reducing the activity of certain neurotransmitters. Botox has been found to inhibit the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays a role in the experience of pain and emotional states. By reducing the activity of acetylcholine, Botox may help to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety.

If you are considering the use of Botox for primary reasons other than cosmetic – as mentioned above – remember it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before considering Botox treatment and to use it in conjunction with other treatments.

5 Surprising Uses For Botox You Might Need This Summer

5 Surprising Uses For Botox You Might Need This Summer

how botox works

No matter where we inject Botox it always does this same thing and that is that it essentially limits or prevents movement in the areas treated.

Normally, your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles so that they can contract and move.  The electrical message is transmitted to the muscle by a substance called acetylcholine.  Botox works to block the release of acetylcholine and, as a result, the muscle does not receive the message to contract.  This means that the muscle spasms or movements that cause wrinkling, stop or are greatly reduced after using BOTOX®.

But the benefits don’t stop at wrinkles; because acetylcholine is not being activated, there are a number of other uses Botox can help you enjoy the warm, mask-free, active summer ahead!

1. Excessive Sweating

Intense sweating can be embarrasing and uncomfortable and pretty much ruin your day – and your clothes!

BOTOX® injections can fix this.

BOTOX® can be injected into areas which sweat profusely like the under arms and backs of knees or palms of the hands as it blocks the release of acetylcholine near the sweat glands which is the cause of the excessive sweating.

The average amount of Botox for underarms is 50 on each side and is usually needed once or twice a year depending upon the patient. Less may be neededin smaller areas, but it all depends upon the patient.

2. Acne Aid

Most Dermatologists have known this for years, but Botox for acne is just starting to gain attentions as a treatment to aid in treating chronic acne.

Botox injections block acetylcholine in the skin’s dermis which is linked to the skin’s oil production. Oil turns the skin into a breeding ground for the bacteria that can cause acne outbreaks. With Botox injections, patients experience fewer flare ups and healthier, less oily skin.

3. Jaw Grinding and Clenching

Injected in to the masseters, Botox will limit your ability to clench or grind your teeth, which you will notice this about a week after your injections.

If you are a longtime clencher the chances are your jawline will be larger or more pronounced and one of the added bonuses to masseter injections is that in about 30 days you will see a noticeably slimmer look to this area.

Masseter injections require a total of 40 units of Botox (20 per side) and most patients get treatment twice a year to maintain results.

4. Jaw and Neck Tightening

Neck Botox is a great way to target pronounced muscles (platysmal bands) that become more obvious as we age.

In addition to wrinkle reduction, Botox in the neck will relax the muscles that pull down the jawline, thereby improving the jawline. This means that neck Botox can effectively tighten the skin adding subtle changes to the shape of the jaw and neck, slimming it down and reduce sagging skin.

5. Foot Pain

If you have tighter calf muscles, which can develop over time from overuse, exercise, and even wear high heels shoes, then you know the pain that can come from plantar fascitiis and other tendon pain.

Traditionally steriods were used to treat these systems, but lately patients have been finding relief with Botox.

When Botox is injected into the plantar fascia, it relaxes and weakens the strength of the tendon, relieving swelling and pain. 

Botox injections offer an effective treatment option for both nerve and neuroma pain. After a Botox injection, the damaged nerves are paralyzed and can no longer transmit pain signals to the brain.

BONUS: Migraines

Because Botox injections block chemical signals that cause muscles to contract, injections have been found to work for pain and muscle related issues – and this includes chronic headaches and debilitating migraines.

While not a cure for migraines, this FDA approved treatment is a great preventative method for keeping migraines at bay and reducing the frequency for sufferer.

Attention: National Botox Day Is Almost Here…this means SPECIALS on Botox!

Attention: National Botox Day Is Almost Here…this means SPECIALS on Botox!

Yes, National Botox Day is a real thing and this year is actually the 2nd year Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm and all things wonderful) is celebrating a wrinkle-free life and this is a good thing.

This stupid year has caused a 135% increase in wrinkle formation on foreheads, around eyes and an astounding number of adults in the U.S. and abroad look angrier than ever before with the accelerated increase of deep 11s between the eyes.

I made all of that up, except for the part about National Botox Day and that this year is stupid – both true.

As for the rest, I don’t know if we all have more Covid wrinkles (aka Crinkles), but either way NBD is a BIG DEAL because Allergan is giving away money for Botox… so YAY!?

But wait there’s more!

As you may or may not know, in the past couple of years we have had Black Friday specials which become available for purchase on this very website in our e-commerce shop. While we will be publishing our shop as usual on Friday at 12am so you can purchase treatments at great discounts for 24 hours, we have decided to do a slow release of these specials leading up to Black Friday. 

What does this mean? 

It means every day we will share a new special that can be purchased immediately by calling our office at 360-335-4951 and scheduling an appointment any time before or after Black Friday. Specials purchased leading up to and including Black Friday can be used any time for a year from date of purchase. 

 

 

And the first black friday specials are FOR…

As an additional celebration of NBD, we are sharing our Black Friday Botox Specials starting RIGHT NOW! You can wait to purchase them online on Friday, November 27th or give us a call or stop in to buy (please call ahead of time because dumb COVID) or make an appointment within the next week.

(again… COVID + Wrinkles = Crinkles).

I totally just made the term up and will probably patent or trademark or copyright it or whatever one does to become wildly rich and famous, so until that happens and I fly off on my own private jet to one of those places with huts in the water I will see you at the medspa.
