The Lip Flip vs. The Lip Fill

To Flip or Fill? How to decide between a Botox Lip Flip and Lip Filler and how to know which one is right for you.

Luscious and full lips never go out of style, and luckily these days there are multiple ways to achieve the soft pout and feminine plump we all covet au natural and sans the lip liner.

Although recently lip fillers have gained a lot of popularity for their innovative natural look and feel, they aren’t the only way to achieve that perfect pout you may be looking for. At first, hearing the word “Botox” might inspire images of flawless and wrinkle-free faces, but did you know that when properly and strategically injected into the muscle above the upper lip, Botox can also help achieve the look of a voluminous pout?

Gorgeous lips are your ultimate goal, now the question is: which option is right for you? To flip or to fill?

The Botox Lip Flip

In technical terms, a Botox Lip Flip is an injectable procedure that can help people achieve a fuller upper lip without the use of dermal filler. When Botox is injected into the muscle just above the upper lip, it relaxes the muscle and slightly rolls out the upper lip giving the appearance of a fuller pink pout. This technique also helps relax the upper lip down over the gums. The Botox Lip Flip helps give the illusion of volume with natural and subtle results.

A Botox Lip Flip can be done quickly with little to no bruising and will last up to 2 months and can be repeated as needed.

Lip Filler

With Juvéderm at the forefront of filler science, there are more natural filler options now than ever before. Options that offer a subtle plump, and thanks to talented master injectors like Michael Bradbury at Studio 27, beautifully natural-looking results.

During a lip filler treatment at Studio 27, a Juvéderm product is injected directly into the meat of the lips to add volume and definition. Lip fillers are Hyaluronic acid-based, which is a natural substance found in the body. With an experienced injector, lip filler can plump the lips, improve symmetry, and enhance or change the shape of your lips – hello cupids bow!

Lip filler can last up to 1 year before the body breaks down and metabolizes the product and can be repeated as necessary.

Deciding between a Botox Lip Flip and Lip Filler can be tricky, but a consultation with our very own master injector, Michael Bradbury at Studio 27, can help you make the right choice and Michael will advise you on which treatment would be most beneficial for your luscious lip goals!
