What exactly is a “lip flip”? How does it work?
“When we’re talking about lip flips, we are referring to the use of either Xeomin/Botox/Dysport injections – not to be confused with dermal filler in the lips. It’s a totally different procedure and provides a different results.
It takes less than 5 minutes and involves a few small injections of the neuromodulator/toxin into the muscle, just above the lip border. What happens is, the toxin relaxes the muscle around the mouth (the obicularis oris muscle, to be specific). This action allows the top lip to be gently rolled out, creating a subtle, sexy pout and the illusion of larger lips.
Here at Pink Medspa, Nurse J exclusively uses Xeomin for this procedure She loves it because her clients report a speedy results and 100% satisfaction. This can be done to both the top and bottom lip, however more commonly is done to the top. Nurse J always asks that you consider starting out slowly and try one lip first with the smallest amount of toxin needed. Neuromodulators, like Xeomin, Botox and Dysport are amazing, however cannot be reversed and are still a medication that requires physician oversight and a licensed medical professional to administer.
