Treatment 101: what is a Lip Flip?

Does your top lip disappear when you smile? Do you wish it showed more without adding volume? Then a lip flip is a perfect solution! So, what is a lip flip?

Injecting botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles around your upper lip, which makes your lip “flip” upward a tiny bit (eversion) and appear more prominent than usual, where it will also stay when you smile. This is the perfect treatment for someone wanting more shape to their lips without any added volume. By adding this small change to your upper lip, you will notice a drastic improvement in your smile, ultimately boosting your confidence which is what we love here at M1 Med Beauty. 

Here at M1 Med Beauty, we offer this anti-wrinkle treatment for $99, an excellent alternative to adding dermal filler to your lips. Lip flips tend to last between 4-6 weeks with no downtime after treatment, and no massaging of the lips is necessary, which is a great bonus. 

You’ll notice a positive change immediately after your appointment, so there is no need to wait for the results to kick in. This procedure is also relatively painless; there are only 4 points of injections meaning fewer needles for you! This ultimately amplifies the shape of your natural lip for a “poutier” look. 

When getting a lip flip, you may have some difficulty drinking out of a straw. This is due to using muscle relaxants in the treatment, which takes away some of your control of the upper lip. But, apart from this small factor, there are no changes to your daily life! 

Lip flips are offered in all of our clinics across Australia and usually take 15 minutes to complete. Book a free consultation here.
