Lip filler is priced by the quantity of syringe injections. Most people need only one or two syringes of lip filler per procedure. The cost of a full syringe averages between $500 and $1,000.
The Botox lip flip involves injecting 4-6 units of Botox above the upper lip at the center (near the cupid's bow) and near the corners of the mouth.
The price of a lip flip varies from practice to practice, but it typically hovers around $150 to $200. Unlike plumping agents like Juvaderm or Restylane Kysse, which last for six months or longer, the agents used in a lip flip typically last eight weeks.
Most filler syringes contain 1.0 ml (milliliters or cc) of product. This includes products such as Restylane and Juvéderm–which also includes Voluma, Vollure, Ultra, and Volbella. Some fillers do come in larger (e.g., Radiesse-1.5 ml) or smaller sizes but let's discuss the vastly more commonly used 1.0 ml syringes.
On average, your healthcare provider will insert about two to four units of Botox into your upper lip and two units into your lower lip.
Botox is measured in “units.” There are 100 units in one syringe of Botox.
Similar to fillers, a lip flip can provide an inviting, attractively enhanced smile by causing the upper lip to unfurl and tilt upward, but it doesn't provide the same amount of volume that fillers do. Instead of using fillers, a lip flip is done with a neuromodulator (a Botox like substance).
Depending on the injection site and amount of dermal filler, most HA fillers last from 6 – 12 months on average. Regardless of which dermal filler you use, two or three syringes are almost always recommended in order to achieve the most gorgeous outcomes.
The average cost is between $500-800 per syringe.
How much is in one syringe of filler? Most fillers come in a syringe with 1mL of product. That is approximately 1/5th of a teaspoon. A small amount of product can go a long way, but many times optimal results require more than one syringe to obtain.
It is important to keep in mind that the Botox lip flip only lasts three to four months, and you'll need to return for treatment about two to three times as often as you would for filler injections.
If you already have a decent amount of volume in your lips but would like to alter the shape, a lip flip might be the better choice. If you want added volume and longer-lasting results, then lip fillers may be what you're looking for.
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.

A lip flip involves injecting a type of abobotulinumtoxin A, such as Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau, into the top lip. The goal is to relax the orbicularis oris muscle, which helps form and shape the lips. The injection encourages the top lip to relax and “flip” outwards, giving the subtle illusion of a fuller lip.
For someone desiring a more defined border or slight plump, 1 syringe is usually enough. For those desiring voluminous lips often depicted on Instagram, more than one syringe will be needed. How many depends on the size of your lips to begin with and your desired outcome.
You may expect to pay an average of $500 to $600 or more for each syringe. Depending on your goals, you may need multiple syringes in one session. Some providers suggest two syringes in one treatment. The cost of Juvéderm varies widely.
“Rule of thumb: If your injector own the practice, no tipping necessary. If they are an employee it is customary to tip. That being said, no one expects 20% tip of their service. … $20 goes a long way in making your provider feel appreciated, in my experience.”
If you want noticeably plumper lips but don't want to go too far, a half syringe of filler may be enough. This will give you a more natural-looking and subtle result. However, this all depends on the current size of your lips, so a full syringe may be necessary.
Conversely, for those patients who want a subtle change, with hydrated/rejuvenated and slightly defined lips, 0.5ml overall is the right amount. But, if you want an instant plump of the lips and a fuller look, 1ml of lip filler is the best choice.
As with all injectable treatments, there is some downtime involved after a BOTOX lip flip. According to Dr. Dauwe, all patients should abstain from putting pressure on their lips for 3 – 4 days after their appointment. This includes activities like kissing.
Doesn't address the lower lip.
While the lip flip can create the illusion of fuller lips overall, BOTOX is not injected into the lower lip during this procedure.
In order to get the most attractive results, there are a few things you should avoid after lip injections. First, stay out of extreme temperatures for at least 48 hours following your appointment. Avoid going into a hot tub or sauna and abstain from smoking.
