BOTOX® LIP FLIP VS. LIP FILLER: GET THE FACTS

In the quest for perfect lips, two popular cosmetic treatments have taken center stage: the BOTOX lip flip and fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Revanesse Versa Both procedures offer unique benefits, but you need to understand their differences in order to make an informed choice that gives you the lips you’re looking for. So we’ve put together the facts about each treatment, including their longevity, ideal candidates, and what the procedures entail.

Lip fillers made from hyaluronic acid are a tried-and-true method for achieving fuller, smoother, shapelier lips. They can also be used to smooth lines around the mouth and enhance the border. This non surgical procedure involves injecting the filler into specific areas of the upper and lower lips to enhance volume, definition, texture, and symmetry. The results are instantaneous and adjustable, making it an appealing choice for those seeking an immediate, customized transformation. At Watts Wellness in St. George we’re known for our “Watts Look” which means our results look natural and polished—never overfilled!

The duration of lip fillers varies depending on factors like the type of filler used, metabolism, and lifestyle. Generally, lip fillers like Restylane Kysse®, JUVÉDERM, RHA or Versa last around 12 months. We recommend you get a touch-up at around 9 months to keep your lips looking their best non-stop

The BOTOX lip flip is a newer trend in the world of lip enhancement. Unlike lip fillers, this technique involves BOTOX injections into your upper lip. This relaxes the orbicularis oris muscle, causing the lip to roll or “flip” outwards. This creates the illusion of a larger, more projected upper lip without adding volume. At Watts Wellness we may also inject BOTOX into the depressor muscles at the corners of your mouth to help with downturned corners or marionette lines.

Comparison of lip flip and lip filler treatments.

How Long Does a Lip Flip Last?
The effects of a BOTOX lip flip typically last around 2 to 4 months. If you stick to a regular schedule of maintenance treatments, your results may begin to last longer.

Ideal Candidates for BOTOX Lip Flip
Those who desire a subtle change in their upper lip appearance, such as a more pronounced cupid’s bow or a lifted lip edge, are ideal candidates for a BOTOX lip flip. It’s a great option for individuals with a “gummy smile,” and those whose upper lip curls under. A lip flip can also enhance the results of your lip filler.

A BOTOX lip flip involves a series of tiny injections along the border and body of the top lip. These injections relax the muscles, allowing the lip to gently roll outward. The procedure involves minimal discomfort and little to no downtime. Results gradually become noticeable within 7 to 10 days.

BOTOX Lip Flip vs. Lip Filler: Which One Is Right for You?
Your perfect lips are just a consultation away. At Watts Wellness in St. George we evaluate your lips from every angle, in a variety of lights, to assess projection, proportion, and definition. We can help you determine whether a lip flip, lip filler, or both will provide the look you want.
