Full, luscious lips almost never go unnoticed. And they certainly never go out of style, especially in the Louisville area. But not everyone is blessed with the kind of perfect pouty lips often found among Hollywood’s elite. Fortunately, there are some minimally invasive treatments, such as a lip flip in Louisville, available that can effectively plump your lips and give you an ensuing confidence boost as others take notice.
While utilizing dermal fillers to attain the most extravagant looking lips is a common aesthetic procedure, not everyone who wishes for fuller lips necessarily wants or needs fillers to achieve a desired outcome. Some prefer a slightly more subtle approach. That’s where the ever-popular lip flip really shines!
What is a lip flip in Louisville?
A lip flip is an in-office treatment that involves the injection of neurotoxins, such as Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport®, just above the upper lip and around the corners of your mouth. The injections temporarily relax the muscles around your lip, which causes part of your upper lip to “flip” upward and outward. That’s what gives you the fuller appearance. From start to finish, the whole procedure takes just 10 to 20 minutes, so you’re on your way in no time.
Who is a good candidate for a lip flip?
A lip flip is usually a great treatment option for healthy individuals 18 to 65 who are self-conscious about their upper lip being too thin or even disappearing when they smile. Those who wish for their smile to be less gummy are usually great candidates for a lip flip as well. It’s also a great choice for people who want a refreshed look that’s a bit more subtle and more temporary (lip fillers can last from 6 to 12 months, while a lip flip can last for about 8 to 12 weeks).
What are the benefits of a lip flip compared to lip filler?
A lip flip will amplify the natural shape of your lips without exaggerating it for a natural-looking effect. It’s a less-invasive option to achieve lip enhancement. While a lip flip will make your lips look fuller, it doesn’t add volume like dermal fillers do; your upper lip essentially just gets rearranged. And since results don’t last as long as dermal fillers, it can be a great alternative for someone who desires subtle plumping to get ready for a big event (like a wedding) without the commitment of fillers.
You might even say that a lip flip can serve as a great “test run” for someone who wants to see if a longer lasting effect with dermal fillers may be a future possibility. Also, a lip flip is less expensive than lip filler procedures. Prices do vary depending on your individual needs, however, so we will go over all those details during your consultation.
What kind of results can I expect with a lip flip in Louisville?
You will start to notice some improvement with your lip in a few days following your treatment, with the full effect presenting in about 10 to 14 days. Since only a small amount of neurotoxin is injected, results will start to fade in about 2 to 3 months. Bright side, you can choose to maintain your results by having periodic injections.
