If you're looking to enhance your lips, you may be wondering whether a lip flip or lip filler is the right choice for you. These two popular options work in different and complimentary ways. Here's what you need to know to help make an informed decision.
Understanding the difference between lip flip and lip filler.
A LIP FLIP is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a small amount of neuromodulator (tox) into the muscles around your lips. This relaxes the muscles to cause the upper lip to roll slightly upward, creating the illusion of a fuller upper lip, while also preventing the it from flattening or rolling under when you smile. The effects of a lip flip typically last 2 months and can be repeated as needed. It’s important to note that a lip flip does not add volume to your lips, but rather enhances the natural shape and contour of your upper lip.
LIP FILLER, on the other hand, involves injecting a hyaluronic acid-based gel into your lips to add volume and structure. The filler is injected into specific areas of your lips, and with skilled techniques, to add plumpness, definition, and to correct asymmetries or irregularities. The effects of lip filler typically last for 6-12 months, depending on the type of filler used and your metabolism.
When deciding between lip flip and lip filler, there are certain factors to consider. Lip flip is considered a good option for those who want a subtle enhancement and don't want to commit to the longer-lasting effects of lip filler. On the other hand, lip filler is a more dramatic option that can create a significant change in the appearance of your lips. While it costs more, lip filler lasts longer. When deciding the option most suitable for you, it is important to consider your desired outcome, budget, and the level of commitment you're willing to make before choosing between lip flip and lip filler.
Ultimately, the decision between lip flip and lip filler should be made in consultation with a professional who will review your individual needs and goals, as well as your medical history and any potential risks or complications. We can also provide guidance on aftercare and maintenance to ensure the best possible results.
