Lip Flip vs. Lip Filler: Which one is right for You?

LEARN THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A LIP FLIP & LIP FILLER

Are you deciding if lip filler or a lip flip is the best option for you? Below we’ll break down the differences between these two procedures and help you achieve the lip shape and results you’ve always wanted.

The difference between a Lip Flip & Lip Filler

Learn about the differences between a lip flip and lip filler below:

What is a Lip Flip?

A Lip Flip Uses Botox That's Injected Around The Lips

Upper Lip Botox Injection, Glastonbury, CT Med Spa

A lip flip is a non-invasive procedure that creates the illusion that your lips appear fuller. Lip flips use neuromodulators like Botox and are injected above or below your lips’ rim or vermillion border and the corners of your mouth or oral commissures. This procedure relaxes the muscles surrounding the lips, causing them to relax and roll slightly upward. This creates the illusion of a fuller upper lip without adding volume. The results of a lip flip typically last about 6 to 8 weeks.

What is Lip Filler?

Lip Filler Uses Hyaluronic Acid That's Injected Into The Lip

Lip Filler - Upper Lip

Lip fillers are injections that add volume to your lips. Dermal fillers, also known as lip fillers, consist of synthetic hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Results from lip fillers typically last 6 months to a year.

Revanesse® Lips+

Types of Lip Fillers

A Lip Flip Uses Botox That's Injected Above The Lip

Juvederm, Revanesse Lips+, or Revanesse Versa+ are all FDA-approved forms of Hyaluronic Acid that are safe to inject into the lips to enhance their size and shape. 

Your provider’s preference may be due to their familiarity with specific properties of their preferred dermal filler. The types of lip fillers that your injector is most experienced with will ensure that their clients will achieve their desired results.

How Long Lip Flips & Lip Filler Last

Learn about the benefits of a lip flip and lip filler below:

How Long Do Lip Flips Last?

Lip Flips Typically Last 6 To 8 Weeks

How Long Do Lip Flips Last?​

The results of a lip flip typically last about 6 to 8 weeks. Clients can see results within the first 24 hours. Your lip flip will settle in your lips 2–3 days after your session. You will then see an improvement in your lip shape. 

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Lip Flips Typically Last 6 To 8 Months

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?​

Results from lip fillers typically last 6 months to a year. Lip fillers can last for 6 to 8 months. Clients can see results within the first 24 hours. Your lip fillers will start to settle in your lips 2 to 3 weeks after your session. You will then see an improvement in your lip volume. How long they last depends on how fast your body metabolizes the dermal filler. Younger individuals typically metabolize faster which will lead to their lips fillers to dissolve faster.

The Pro's of Lip Flips & Lip Fillers

Learn about the pro’s and cons of a lip flip and lip filler below:

Pros of a Lip Flip

  • Quick and relatively painless procedure. The procedure for a lip flip takes up to 15 minutes to complete, making it a swift and hassle-free option for those who want to enhance their upper lip. We offer numbing cream to make this treatment relatively painless.
  • Less expensive than lip fillers. Lip flips typically cost $99 comparing to lip fillers that can cost up to $700. The price makes lip flips an affordable option for those who want to enhance their lips.
  • Enhances the upper lip without adding volume. A lip flip uses Botox injections to relax the muscles surrounding the lips, causing them to roll slightly upward. It creates the illusion of a fuller upper lip without adding volume. Lip flips benefit those who want to enhance their upper lip without changing the shape or size of their natural lips.

Pros of Lip Filler

  • They can be customizable based on your aesthetic goals. Lip fillers are customizable to achieve your desired look or shape. They are customizable based on the number of units needed and the areas injected to create a subtle or dramatic change in the appearance of your lips.
  • You will have fuller lips. Unlike a lip flip, lip fillers add volume to the lips, creating a fuller and plumper appearance. Lip fillers benefit those who want to enhance their lips and create a more balanced and symmetrical look.
  • Longer-lasting results. How long your lip filler will last depends on how frequent you get maintenance done on your lips. After your first lip filler session, you can expect your last on average 6 to 8 months. If you schedule lip filler follow-up appointments bi-annually, typically your lip filler can have even a longer-lasting result when getting continued maintenance on them.

Which Lip Treatment Is Right for You?

Learn which lip treatment would be right for you below:

Why A Lip Flip May Be Right for You

A lip flip might be the ideal lip treatment for you if:

  • You’re looking for a subtle enhancement: A lip flip provides a slight change that can make your upper lip appear fuller without adding volume, making it a good choice if you want a less dramatic change than fillers.
  • You wish to expose more of your upper lip: If your upper lip tends to disappear when you smile, a lip flip can enhance its visibility by turning the lip slightly outward.
  • Your desire is a more affordable option: Lip flips typically cost less than lip fillers, making them a more budget-friendly option if cost is a significant factor for you.
  • You’re looking for a quicker procedure and recovery: Lip flips generally take less than 15 minutes and the recovery period is usually shorter than with fillers. You can expect to see the final result within a few days to a week.
  • You prefer less commitment: The effects of a lip flip last three to four months, allowing you to try out the look without a longer-term commitment. This can be a great way to test if you like the appearance before moving on to more permanent options.
  • You have a gummy smile: A lip flip can reduce the appearance of a gummy smile by restricting the upward movement of the lip, thus revealing less gum when smiling.

Why Lip Fillers May Be Right for You

Lip fillers might be the ideal lip treatment for you if:

  • Your desire is increased lip volume: Lip fillers are a great way to add volume and fullness to thin lips. If you’re unsatisfied with the natural size of your lips, fillers can provide a more plump, fuller look.
  • You want to define your lip shape: Fillers can help to define the shape of your lips, enhancing the cupid’s bow and creating a more pronounced outline.
  • You wish to smooth out lip lines: Lip fillers, particularly those based on hyaluronic acid, can help to fill and smooth vertical lines on the lips, often referred to as “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines”.
  • You’re looking for long-lasting results: The effects of lip fillers can last anywhere from six months to a year, depending on the individual and type of filler used, which is significantly longer than the duration of a lip flip.
  • You are seeking a solution for asymmetrical lips: If your lips are not symmetrical, lip fillers can be used to balance their appearance by adding volume to one or both lips as needed.
  • You’re comfortable with the recovery time: Although the procedure is quick, healing from lip fillers can take up to two weeks, during which minor swelling and bruising may occur.

Below is the list of steps that you can expect during your lip consultation:

  1. Schedule A Consultation: Schedule your consultation with Touch of Glamour or a reputable med spa that offers lip injection services.

  3. Discussion of Your Goals: Your provider will take the time to understand your desired outcomes, sharing your aesthetic preferences, lip shape, and volume goals.
  4. Choosing The Best Option For You: Based on your aspirations and the injector’s expertise, determine whether a lip flip or lip filler (or a combination) is the best choice for you.
  5. Treatment Explanation: Your provider will explain the precautions of your chosen lip treatment and the post-care plan that’s recommended. 
  6. Your Treatment Begins: Once all questions are addressed and you’re comfortable, your lip enhancement procedure will commence.
  7. Schedule Your Follow-Up Appointment: Once your lip treatment is finished, you’ll schedule your follow-up appointment. During the follow-up, your injection will view the results of your previous lip treatment, provide any needed touch-ups, and ensure the success of your treatment.
