A lip flip is a quick and simple procedure. At JEM Medspa, you can achieve fuller-looking lips and confidence in your appearance in about ten minutes. Because a lip flip isn't considered very painful, most patients don't need to have their lips numbed beforehand.
When Will I See Results of a Lip Flip? About two to three days after a lip flip, patients will notice that their upper lip appears larger as the muscle relaxes. The maximum results are evident a week to 10 days after treatment.
After your injection, it takes about a week for you to see results. You will have to wait about a week to see results from the Botox lip flip. This also means that your injector cannot gauge your outcome in real time during your treatment, as they can with filler, which develops results immediately.
Although the procedure makes the lip look more prominent, it does not increase the size of the lip itself. Lip flips may be particularly beneficial for individuals who have smiles that expose much of their gums. Following a lip flip, less gum shows when the individual smiles because the upper lip elevates less.
While the words “lip flip” may conjure up a dramatic image in your mind, the word “flip” is used simply because it rhymes with lip and, in fact, results are fairly subtle. A more accurate description would be to say the procedure rolls the upper lip ever-so-slightly outward.
The Russian technique accentuates the cupid's bow to resemble a heart-shape by injecting additional volume and lift into the center of the lips, while the sides still remain relatively in line with the face. The result is doll-like while still appearing naturally full and plump.
Can you Kiss After Lip Filler? Kissing can apply a lot of pressure to the lips and increase risk of infection (there is a lot of bacteria in the mouth!), so it is best to avoid kissing for 48–72 hours after getting lip filler treatment.
Things to Avoid After a Lip Flip
First, do not drink with a straw. Also, don't rub the treated areas around the mouth because that will prevent the neurotoxin from spreading.
Note: A good candidate for a lip flip is anyone who wants the illusion of fuller, poutier lips without fillers. It's also a great way to correct a gummy smile, meaning your gums are very visible when you smile.
You would like a subtly more prominent “pout” to your lips. You feel your upper lip looks invisible when you smile. You want fuller-looking lips but do not want additional volume.
During the procedure
Here are a few things to know about the lip flip procedure itself: It should take only around 10 minutes. The doctor likely won't numb your lips beforehand, because the procedure isn't very painful. Some people have compared it to the sensation of having a pimple on your lip.
A BOTOX® lip flip uses about 4 to 6 units of BOTOX® injected along the upper lip to “flip” it outward and upward. This subtly creates the appearance of a larger, more lifted upper lip.
Dr. Phillip Dauwe, a board-certified plastic surgeon, explains that patients should wait 3 – 4 days before putting any pressure on their lips – including kissing.
If you're under 18, it is illegal for anyone to inject you with botulinum toxin, or fillers for cosmetic purposes, or make plans or book an appointment to do so. It does not matter if you or your parents or guardians give their permission for the procedures to take place.
We recommend avoiding kissing 4+ hours after the lip flip botox treatment. For passionate kissers we recommend to wait a couple of days after the lip flip botox treatment. Lip flip botox treatment does not affect smiling, it will bring the upper lip outward to create an appearance of more volume.
There are a plethora of fillers on the market that are perfect for restoring volume loss, it just depends on how much volume or plump you want to add. Kylie prefers Juvederm, a brand of filler that's owned by Allergan. While there are different types of Juvederm fillers, Kylie's team goes for Juvederm Ultra Plus.
Lip fillers are an excellent way to enhance the volume and shape of your thinning lips.
There are, however, three categories of filler: permanent, semi-permanent, and non-permanent. The one you choose affects your outcome. Permanent fillers are made of silicone.
After treatment, avoiding a drink for a couple of days helps you heal optimally and get the most out of your injections. Rarely, Botox injections can cause drowsiness and / or dizziness, and that doesn't pair well with alcohol.
Unlike other lip flips, the Nurse Shara technique allows for both the top and bottom lips to be flipped to create a kissable pout that does not require the use of filler. That's right: the original Nurse Shara Lip Flip is a stand-alone treatment for the top or bottom lip that doesn't call for additional lip fillers.
Its results cannot be reversed so you have to wait for the injection to wear off before receiving other treatments to fix them.
Lip lifts are permanent because it's a surgical procedure, meanwhile, fillers are temporary. Fillers are a cheaper route to fuller lips, with results lasting between six months to a year.
Upper lip lifts are notorious for distorting the nasal base, causing scarring and nasal widening. All lip lifts have the potential to change the nose to some degree.
