Where to inject botox for lip flip
A relatively new cosmetic treatment, the lip flip uses a small amount of botulinum toxin (type A) to relax muscles and create the appearance of a fuller upper lip. It is a minimally invasive and quick procedure that can be used alone or in conjunction with lip filler or surgical procedures.
Before the procedure begins, the practitioner will clean the lip area and apply numbing cream to make it more comfortable. Then, they will use a fine needle to inject botox into the target areas of the lip. Generally, this only takes less than a minute, and most patients describe the sensation as being similar to a light pinch.
After a lip flip, it is recommended that patients avoid exercise, smoking, and putting pressure on the lip for about three days to prevent the lips from settling in a position that isn’t desirable. The results should start to appear within a few days, and will continue to improve as the muscle relaxes.
Choosing an experienced injector is critical to getting the best possible result. Look for a provider who has a track record of successful treatments and reviews from past patients. You should also ensure that the practitioner is licensed to administer Botox, as this is an FDA-approved product that requires specialized training and certification. With the right practitioner, a lip flip can be a great way to correct a gummy smile and boost self-esteem without adding volume.
