Full, Luscious Lips In Louisville Are More Attainable Than You Think
Full, attractive lips never go out of style. But there are plenty of people who feel like the seemingly perfect pouty lips often found among Hollywood’s elite are far too out of reach. But that’s just not the case. The lip flip is a minimally invasive treatment available at Vibrant Med that can effectively plump your lips to give you an ensuing confidence boost and have you puckering with pride.
While a lot of practices utilize dermal fillers to attain the most extravagant looking lips (which we are also capable of), not every patient longing for fuller lips necessarily wants or needs fillers to achieve a specific desired outcome. Some of our patients prefer a slightly more subtle approach, and that’s where the lip flip really shines.
What exactly is a lip flip?
The lip flip is an in-office treatment that involves the injection of neurotoxins, such as Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport®, in a few strategic places just above your upper lip and around the corners of your mouth. These injections help to temporarily relax the muscles in the treatment area, which causes your upper lip to slightly “flip” upward and outward, giving you a fuller appearance. The whole procedure only takes about 10 to 20 minutes, so you’ll be on your way in a flash.
Am I a good candidate for a lip flip?
The lip flip is a good treatment option for healthy people ages 18 to 65 who find themselves self-conscious about their upper lip being too thin, especially when they smile. People who want their smile to be less gummy are usually good 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 temporary (fillers can last from 6 to 12 months, while a lip flip generally lasts for about 8 to 12 weeks).
How do the benefits of a lip flip compare to those of lip filler?
A lip flip can amplify the natural shape of your lips without overemphasizing it for a more natural-looking effect. While the lip flip can make your lips look fuller, it doesn’t really add volume like lip fillers do. Since results don’t last quite as long as dermal fillers do, a lip flip can be a great alternative for someone who wants subtle plumping to get ready for an upcoming event without the longer commitment that comes with fillers.
That said, a lip flip can serve as a great “trial run” for someone who wishes to see if the longer lasting effects with dermal fillers could be a future possibility. In addition, a lip flip is less expensive than lip filler procedures. Prices do vary depending on the patient’s individual needs, however, so we’ll go over all the details during your consultation.
What results can I expect with a lip flip?
Most patients start noticing some improvement with their upper lip in a few days following treatment. Typically, the full effect manifests in about 10 to 14 days. Because only a small amount of neurotoxin is used for the injections, results start to fade in about 2 to 3 months. But you can maintain your results by having periodic injections if that’s your preference.
