Are you ready for your best lips but not sure where to start? We’ve compiled all you need to know to start your lip journey.
Before you ever get poked, we recommend scheduling a consultation. This will give us time to
speak with you about your specific goals, concerns, and how you view your best lips. During this time, we’ll let you know what to expect, determine which product will best suit you, and how much to start with.
LIP FLIP VS. LIP FILLER
There are two main procedures we use along your lip journey to help you achieve your best lips. Let’s explore the benefits and details of both the Lip Flip and Lip Filler.
The Lip Flip is a great way to dip your toes into the world of lip augmentation via injectables. This procedure uses botulinum toxin to relax the muscles above the upper lip to create the illusion of a fuller upper lip and remedy a gummy smile. We say it creates the illusion of a fuller lip, because it does not actually add volume. Because it requires just a couple of small injections, a Lip Flip takes a few minutes and lasts up to 3 months. This may be enough to give you your best lips! As with all procedures utilizing botulinum toxin, you’ll begin to notice results in 4-10 days and full results will manifest due to fully relaxed muscles in about 2 weeks.
The injection of filler into the lips packs the greatest punch on your journey to your best lips. This procedure actually creates a fuller lip by adding volume to both the upper and lower lips. Additionally, it can add moisture, definition, and even change the shape of the lips. Unlike the Lip Flip, Lip Filler yields results right away (in fact swelling may cause your lips to look larger at first) and lasts 6-18 months.
Of course our recommendation comes after the consultation and is always dependent upon your goals and your lips’ natural size and shape, we often suggest both a Lip Flip and Lip Filler. The combination is often able to provide the right amount of volume, shape, hidden gums, and relaxed pout.
