Understanding Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement is a popular choice for individuals that want fuller, more defined lips. Lip enhancement can be a transformative cosmetic procedure. For many women, it plays a pivotal role in achieving aesthetic goals related to their lips. 

Among available cosmetic procedures, lip filler and lip flip stand out as prominent options. Vibrant Med offers these procedures and aids individuals in making an informed choice based on their unique goals for lip volume, shape, and overall appearance.

What is a Lip Flip?

The lip flip treatment is a quick (between 10 to 20 minutes, on average) technique that involves injections. It involves the strategic injection of a botulinum toxin such as Botox® into the facial muscles around the mouth. 

We specifically target areas around the upper mouth and corners of the mouth. What happens is that the neurotoxins relaxes muscles in this area. As a result, the upper lip undergoes a subtle yet impactful transformation, gracefully rolling outward in a “flip”. 

The benefits of a lip flip procedure can range from correcting a ‘gummy smile’ to achieving a nuanced enhancement of the upper lip. This subtle enhancement to the top lip can go a long way, but be advised that a lip flip is only temporary and only lasts, on average, a few months. So, repeated visits are needed to keep the lip flip look. 

The procedure has become sought-after for preserving the natural shape of the lips. It delivers results that are both modest and harmonious with an individual’s overall facial aesthetics.

What is Lip Filler?

In contrast to the lip flip, lip filler takes a different approach to lip enhancement. It employs synthetic hyaluronic acid to add volume to the lips. It is injected directly into the lips. 

This injectable dermal filler substance facilitates a more noticeable transformation. It enhances lip fullness, refines symmetry, and defines the lip line. 

Unlike the focused approach of a lip flip, lip filler offers the flexibility to augment both the upper and lower lips. This can cater to a broader spectrum of aesthetic goals. In general, adding volume to thin lips can be a cosmetic treatment plan that offers desired results.

Ultimately, this is a more involved procedure that can deliver a substantial change in lip volume and shape. This procedure is ideally suited for individuals seeking a more pronounced enhancement of their lips, where the goal is to make a captivating statement.

Lip Filler vs. Lip Flip: How to Choose

The decision hinges on various factors. These may including the longevity of results and desired outcomes. The natural shape of the lips and specific concerns such as a gummy smile (which a lip flip can assist with).

In essence, lip fillers offer a more enduring transformation, making them suitable for those seeking longer-lasting results. Lip fillers such as Restylane® Kysse™ can also add volume to the lips, which lip flips do not. 

On the other hand, a lip flip provides a subtler enhancement, offering an impactful shift in their lip appearance. For women seeking a simpler and more subtle procedure, the lip flip may be the way to go. The natural-looking results come from just a quick procedure.
