Understanding the Distinction Between Lip Fillers and Lip Flips: A Guide for Patients

Want to enhance your lips, but don't know what treatment to book? First and foremost, just know all of our appointments start with a consultation, and any provider you choose should do the same to understand what you want your end result to be. Now, let's clear up any confusion between lip flips and lip fillers. While both treatments focus on enhancing the lips, they work in completely different ways.

Lip Flips:

They utilize Botox to relax the muscles surrounding your upper lip, causing it to flip slightly upward and appear more prominent. This technique is subtle and excellent for those who are a candidate and only want change in that upper lip.

Lip Fillers:

These involve injecting the lips with a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane or Versa. This treatment is perfect for adding volume, plumpness, hydrating, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Lip fillers can offer a more noticeable transformation if that's what you're looking for, and if your provider believes you would be a good candidate.

The choice between lip flips and lip fillers ultimately comes down to your personal preference and desired outcome. Some people want to balance out or add volume and others want a subtle enhancement.

Personally, our provider and I have done both, lip filler with a lip flip! We love this dynamic duo and the results it gives us! These treatments done together can really create that perfect pout. Whether you opt in for a lip flip or lip fillers, it's all about embracing your unique features and enhancing them in a way that makes you feel your best.

Remember that your aesthetic journey should always be about what makes you feel comfortable in your own skin, just find what works best for you! Whether its lip flips or something else!
