If you are on the hunt for full, pouty lips you may have heard of the latest cosmetic treatment trend the ‘Botox® Lip Flip’. But what is it? Learn more below from aesthetic practitioner in Bournemouth, Austin Brewer
The difference between lip fillers and the Botox ‘Lip Flip’
The first thing to note is the ‘Lip Flip’ is not the same as lip fillers. Lip filler plumps the lips by injecting hyaluronic acid into the lips. This cosmetic treatment enlarges the lips by adding more volume. The process is quick and the results can last up to six months. If you want to know more about lip fillers in Poole, contact our aesthetic practitioner clinic for more information.
Botox® on the other hand, is an injection of Botulinum Toxin Type A, which relaxes the muscle and its activity. It is commonly used as a smoothing wrinkle treatment. Our Botox® in Bournemouth treatments can last up to 3 months.
How does it work?
The ‘Lip Flip’ is a technique that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Botox® injections are inserted into strategic areas around the mouth (the ‘orbicularis oris’). This approach relaxes the muscle at the sides of both the top and lower lip to ‘flip’ the lip out and create a pretty, pouty illusion – but beware it’s not the right look for everyone.
