Fuller without Filler – Botox Lip Flip

Do you want fuller lips, but don’t want to get filler? If so, the Botox Lip Flip may be right for you. The Botox Lip Flip is an easy treatment to enhance the appearance of your lip without using filler.

What can fillers do for the lips?

Fillers such as Volbella, Vollure, and Volbella are products used to restore lost volume in the skin, to enhance the size of features, or to hide the appearance of wrinkles and folds. One of the most common places fillers are used is in the lips. Fillers are used to volumize and shape the lips. The most common filler Dr. Alex uses in the lips is Volbella. Volbella is a very soft product that makes it perfect for an area such as the lips where there is a lot of movement. Like most other fillers, the active ingredient in Volbella is a sugar called hyaluronic acid that’s naturally found in your skin. Hyaluronic acid works by drawing water into the area to provide volume. The unique thing about Volbella is that is has a relatively low hyaluronic acid concentration. This way you don’t get an overfilled lip. Instead, you get natural results. Most people enjoy their results for a year or longer.

What are alternatives to fillers in the lips?

Many people do not want filler in their lips for a variety of reasons. The most common is because they don’t want to look overfilled. Although Volbella is a perfect filler, some people are just against fillers. The lips are very sensitive and getting filler treatments in this area is not comfortable, even when we apply numbing cream and when Dr. Alex uses his painless injection technique. A simple alternative to fillers in the lips is the A E Skin Hydrating Lip Plumper, a topical product you apply to your lips and you see an improvement in minutes. This is perfect just before an important event. If you use it every day, you’ll see long term improvement. Another alternative to fillers in the lips is a surgical implant. The benefit of surgery is that you’ll have long-term if not permanent results. However, many people don’t want surgery. The Botox Lip Flip is a popular alternative to enhance the appearance of your lips without getting fillers.

What is the Botox Lip Flip?

The Botox Lip Flip is an easy treatment that will enhance the appearance of your lips without requiring any filler. You have a muscle that goes around your lips and you use this muscle to eat, speak, breath, etc. Over time, this muscle gets strong and can curl your lips inward, making them look smaller. A small amount of Botox can be placed in the skin above and below your lips to relax this muscle. This prevents the muscle from curling your lips in and provides a subtle and natural pout. Most people really notice the difference when they smile. You only need four to six units of Botox for the Botox Lip Flip, which is much more cost effective than fillers. The Botox Lip Flip is also very fast and comfortable; it takes less than a minute and doesn’t require any numbing cream.

You’ll start to see a visible improvement in your lips in a few days and it can take two weeks for full results, so be sure to be patient. Your lips will feel weird when you move them for about a week after your Botox Lip Flip; this is totally normal and nothing to worry about. In the lower face, we need to use a low dose of Botox because there are a lot of muscles in the area that you don’t want to relax. Because a low dose of Botox is used, you’ll enjoy the results for about six to eight weeks rather than the more common three to four months with Botox in other areas.
