We'd like to do a comparison between the two minimal invasive treatments, what would be your preference?
A lip flip with Botox involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the muscles surrounding the upper lip. The Botox helps relax the muscles, causing a slight upward movement of the lip border. This procedure will make your lips look fuller without adding additional volume as the result of subtle enhancement that will last around two to three months. The lip appearance can create the illusions of fuller lips by slightly flipping the upper lip outward, exposing more of the appearance of the pink lip effect.
Lip flip primarily targets the upper lip to enhance its shape, volume and definition. It is highly recommended that regular maintenance treatments will help sustain effects. It’s a quick, minimally invasive procedure that can be done in just a few minutes and may be difficult to drink out of a straw for a few days at the onset of treatment. This is an excellent treatment if you’d like to show less of your gum.
Lip filler injections involve the use of dermal fillers, typically made of hyaluronic acid to add volume, shape and definition to the lips. This procedure can provide more noticeable and immediate results, adding volume, plumpness and contour to the lips. Areas of treatment result in both the upper and lower lips, allowing comprehensive enhancement and symmetry correction.
It will give you more long-lasting results than a lip flip and a more dramatic transformation. The results of lip filler injections are immediate and can last from 6 months to a year, depending on the specific type of filler used. The procedure is minimally invasive and has 24 hours of social downtime, the recovery includes no exercise or any heavy activity for 24 hours.
