Dr. Shermak stays abreast of the latest innovations and developments in the world of cosmetic treatments. To that end, she’s proud to offer lip flip as a lip contouring option to patients desiring fuller and more structured lips. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Shermak to discuss your lip flip options.

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 Cupid’s bow, i.e., 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 Does a Lip Flip Work?

Botox is a neurotoxin modulator 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.

Benefits of a Lip Flip

  • Non-surgical treatment
  • No pain or discomfort
  • Minimal side effects
  • Affordable treatment
  • Safe and effective
  • No downtime

Botox Lip Flip vs. Lip Fillers

A Botox lip flip is an ideal alternative to a traditional lip filler. However, both methods provide uniquely different results. Lip fillers also improve your lip shape, but they’re more focused on increasing the lip volume. They 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, and Botox lip flip focuses more on the shape. Your cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal method based on your specific goals and needs.

Lip Flip Candidates

A lip flip is ideal for patients who want more contoured lips, i.e., 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.

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 3 months, following which you’ll need maintenance doses to retain the results. Your provider will discuss the ideal treatment frequency for maintenance.

COVID-19 Update 03/15/2022

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued concerns COVID-19 may present.

The state of Maryland is now fortunately downgraded to Yellow Status. COVID stress on the medical system has lessened and most areas in the state no longer mandate masks.

Currently in our office we are maintaining sterile surfaces and compulsive cleaning protocols – as always. We are requesting information about vaccination status, to particularly better help us prepare for patients interested in surgical procedures.

We are not mandating masks. We do respect our patients’ wishes and will wear a mask when requested to do so. We want our patients to be absolutely comfortable. All of our staff are vaccinated.

This is certainly an evolving issue and we will continue to pivot as COVID statistics change – hopefully for the better! Thank you!
