What Is A Lip Flip?

A subset of our IWR injectables, a lip flip is a relatively new cosmetic procedure that gives a person fuller lips with one quick and straightforward treatment. People also refer to it as a lip injection. A lip flip involves injecting a neurotoxin into the upper lip.

A lip flip is a nonsurgical method of creating a fuller lip. A doctor injects botulinum toxin A into the upper lip to create an illusion of a larger lip. It relaxes the muscles above the lip, resulting in the upper lip “flipping” slightly upward. Although the procedure makes the lip look more prominent, it does not increase the size of the lip itself. Lip flips may be particularly beneficial for individuals who have smiles that expose much of their gums. Following a lip flip, less gum shows when the individual smiles because the upper lip elevates less.

Recovery Time And Results

Results appear over a few days. During this time, the orbicularis oris muscle relaxes, which allows the upper lip to lift and “flip.” People should see the full results about a week after treatment.

It is normal to have a small bump at the injection site for a few hours following treatment. Bruising may also occur.

A lip flip lasts for about 2–3 months. It only lasts for a short duration because the upper lip muscle often moves, causing its effects to wear off. This short period might be due to the small dose involved.

Summary

A lip flip is a cosmetic procedure where a doctor uses our IWR injections and places them into the muscle immediately above the top lip. The neurotoxin relaxes the muscle, which causes the lip to flip up, giving the appearance of a fuller lip.

A lip flip is different from dermal fillers: they provide the illusion of fuller lips, while dermal fillers truly make the lip larger.

Individuals can expect to see results within a week of the treatment.

10/10 recommend! I’ve thought about getting injectables for over a year now and finally decided to go with Wellness at the Spa and it was an amazing experience. I was given all the information about what was going to happen and given the price before anything else. I love that because if you don’t want to proceed you are given that option. I will be going back for all my needs!
