Lip Filler vs. Lip Flip With BOTOX® Cosmetic
We’re always looking for new ways to improve the aesthetics of our face, and the lips are always high on that list. However, with new fillers, treatments, and procedures for your lips coming out, it can be hard to keep track. You may be familiar with BOTOX and getting BOTOX for lips, but what is the difference between a lip flip and lip filler?
There are many different types of lip fillers that use different materials, different procedures, and different life spans. However, most lip fillers follow a similar idea. Lip fillers are used to inject a material into the lips to give them a fuller and plump appearance. Then the material will slowly degrade and be absorbed by the body over time. This is because the body will naturally metabolize the material.
Lip Flip With BOTOX
A lip flip is a procedure where BOTOX is used to improve the appearance of the lips. BOTOX is often used to relax muscles and smooth wrinkles and lines. However, BOTOX can be used in many different ways, like in the lips. The upper lip is usually the target for BOTOX injections to relax the lip muscles and help the lips naturally fill out. This gives the appearance of fuller and thicker lips.
Lip flips often look much more natural than lip fillers because no material is added to the lips. Lip flips can also be used to help treat a gummy smile. Gummy smiles are often caused by overactive facial and lip muscles. BOTOX can relax those muscles and reduce a gummy smile while making your lips fuller.
