A Lesson: Lip flip vs Lip filler

When it comes to enhancing your pout, there are two options: the lip flip or lip filler.  We don’t think one is better than the other, it just depends on what you want to achieve!

Here’s what you need to know:

The Lip Flip:

A lip flip uses Botox or Dysport to help relax the muscle of the upper lip. With the muscle relaxed, the upper lip ends up getting “flipped” outwards and upwards slightly, giving it a slightly fuller appearance. It’s the perfect solution if your upper lip is a little too thin or disappears when you smile. The lip flip helps create a more defined lip without adding volume. That said, lip flips aren’t for everyone. If your lips are truly thin, a lip flip might not be enough on its own and for those who already have fuller lips, it might not make a difference. So now let’s talk filler.

Lip Filler:

Lip filler uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in our body, to fill the lips, adding both volume and hydration. For those wanting a fuller pout or to hydrate dry lips, this is your treatment! The beauty of lip filler is it’s very customizable – your nurse can adjust and even correct the shape of your lips by controlling how and where it’s injected. There’s many different kinds of filler and we will suggest a product based on your goals.
