Everything you need to know about a Lip Flip

By Diane Finley

There are a few options when looking to enhance your lips, and a Lip Flip is one of them! 

What is a Lip Flip?

A Lip Flip is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that enhances the upper lip by using Botox.

How does it work?

This procedure involves just a few quick injections to the upper lip. These injections help the upper lip relax and roll slightly upwards, which allows more of the lip to be visible.

This muscle relaxation can also help smooth vertical lines around the lips. Most patients notice the effects within a few days of treatment, with full results in about one week. The effects of Botox for lips lasts up to three to four months.

Who is the Lip Flip for?

The lip flip procedure is ideal for anyone with a thinning upper lip and/or a upper lip wrinkling who is interested in a fuller, more natural looking lip. This is an excellent alternative to Dermal Fillers if you are looking for a subtle enhancement with minimal effort.

Pro Tip:

The cool thing is that both the Botox Lip Flip procedure and traditional lip fillers can be applied at the same time. Filler is used to create volume in a lip and to help enhance or change the shape of your lips to your liking. Botox is used to relax the muscles in your upper lip and “flip” your lip upward.

Does it hurt?

Traditional Botox in the forehead and face has very minimal pain, whereas the Lip Flip will cause you a bit more pain. Fortunately there are only a few quick injections making it tolerable without any numbing creams.

Pro Tip:

If you are worried about the pain, ask for an ice pack before your procedure to “numb” the upper lip before getting injected. For the rest of you, you got this!


You will feel some side affects that traditional cosmetic Botox does not have. Your upper lip will feel “numb” in the area injected for a few days up to a week. This feeling is totally normal and will go away, I promise! If you are drinking a hot beverage, I encourage you to sip slowly for the first week because that numb feeling in your upper lip will feel awkward. I found it comical that I could not blow up a balloon after a week of my injections, but this could be different for everyone! Then one day, that feeling will disappear but the effects will still be there.

If you have any other questions, feel free to call and book a consultation with one of our Nurses.  A Lip Flip is only $100 which makes it totally affordable!
