Enhance Your Lip Contours with the Lip Flip

The “lip flip” is the name given to a new cosmetic treatment to enhance the contours of your lips and mouth. Until recently, lip fillers have been the most direct and effective non-surgical solution for enhanced and lifted lip contours. However, the newly-developed lip flip technique uses BOTOX injections to enhance your lip contours, making them appear more defined and voluminous without side effects or downtime.

Dr. Shermak stays abreast of the latest innovations and developments in the world of cosmetic treatments. To that end, she’s proud to offer the lip flip as a lip contouring option to patients desiring fuller and more structured lips. If you’d like to learn more about how this procedure can help you, reach out to Dr. Shermak’s office in Baltimore and speak with a helpful member of her team to set up your initial consultation today.

What Is a Lip Flip?

A lip flip is a non-surgical injectable treatment wherein BOTOX is injected into strategically-targeted areas around the lips to enhance their contours. The BOTOX injection is delivered into the so-called “Cupid’s bow”—the corners of the mouth and the middle of the upper lips—to relax the muscles and make your upper lips tilt upwards. As the upper lips tilt upwards, they instantly look fuller and more contoured.

How the Procedure Works

BOTOX is a neuromodulator composed of a special component called botulinum toxin type A. This component blocks communications between nerve endings and muscles, temporarily paralyzing the targeted muscles. When injected into the Cupid’s bow, BOTOX temporarily paralyzes the lip muscles, making the upper lips lift upwards and outwards. If you’re curious about the results, you can gently lift your upper lips up and outwards with your fingers.

The Benefits of a Lip Flip

Our patients absolutely love the lip flip for its ability to create impressive results with minimal downtime, making it an ideal way to enhance your look without impacting your busy personal schedule. During your consultation, Dr. Shermak can help you explore the various additional benefits that come along with the lip flip technique.

  • Non-surgical treatment

BOTOX Lip Flip vs. Lip Fillers

A lip flip with the BOTOX injectable neuromodulator is an ideal alternative to a traditional lip filler, but it’s worth noting that each method will provide you with uniquely different results. Lip fillers certainly improve the shape and fullness of your lips, but they’re more specifically focused on increasing the volume around your lips and mouth. 

In other words, fillers make your lips appear voluminous, full, red, and hydrated. Comparatively, BOTOX injections give your lips a lifted, everted, and contoured appearance. To put it simply, lip fillers focus more on volume, while the BOTOX lip flip focuses more on shape. Your cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal method based on your specific goals and needs.

The Ideal Lip Flip Candidate

A lip flip is ideal for patients who want more contoured lips with sharper edges and contours without lip fillers. This treatment is also suitable for patients who want to showcase more of their lips while smiling. However, you shouldn’t have a history of severe allergies to neuromodulators like BOTOX, Dysport, etc. Your cosmetic providers will carefully review your medical history to ensure you’re a viable candidate for a lip flip.

The Lip Flip Experience

Your lip flip treatment starts with a private consultation with our providers. They discuss your specific goals and concerns to determine if you’re a viable candidate for a lip flip and curate the ideal treatment plan accordingly. After selecting the appropriate BOTOX dose, they deliver the BOTOX injections into the Cupid’s bow. The number of injections depends on your specific goals and concerns. The overall treatment lasts for around 15 minutes.

Your Lip Flip Results

You may experience mild redness, swelling, and irritation on the lips for a few days, but you can resume all your daily activities immediately. The lip flip results usually manifest in a few days, with the final results appearing in a week or two. The results last for up to three months, following which you’ll need maintenance doses to retain the results. Your provider will discuss the ideal treatment frequency for maintenance.
