Lip BOTOX® and Lip Fillers: How Does a BOTOX® Lip Flip Work and How Does It Compare to Lip Fillers?

BOTOX® injections for lips or a BOTOX® lip flip is an aesthetic treatment that causes your lips to look bigger, perkier, or shapelier for three to four months—without adding filler. The treatment works by relaxing muscles around your upper lip, which pull the lip down. If you have a thin-looking upper lip or one that curls under when you smile, a BOTOX® lip flip will be helpful. BOTOX® lip injections also reduce vertical lines (“barcode” lip) around the mouth.

You may be wondering: Should I get BOTOX® or lip filler? Dermal fillers are another popular approach for making lips look more volumized. Unlike a BOTOX® lip flip, hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane®, and RHA® are commonly used for enhancing the lips by adding volume and fullness beneath the skin. In addition to increasing lip size, they can also address asymmetry.

The best choice of cosmetic treatment for your lips will depend on your aesthetic goals and other details unique to your specific situation.

Which Cosmetic Procedures Are Available Aside from BOTOX® Lip Flips?

Along with a BOTOX® lip flip, Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa also provides other minimally invasive or non-invasive procedures to enhance the mouth and jaw area, such as facial fillers, skin rejuvenation, and resurfacing procedures. There are cosmetic procedures including microneedling, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, radiofrequency, ultrasound, and laser skin resurfacing that enhance skin tone and texture. Dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane®, and RHA® can also enhance other areas of the lower face. They can reduce lines around the mouth, including smoker’s lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines, or create the appearance of a sharper, better defined jawline.
