Lip flip:

Is your top lip less full than your bottom lip? Or does it almost disappear when smiling, leaving you with a “gummy smile”? If these are your concerns, then you may be a good candidate for a lip flip. This cosmetic procedure involves injecting Neuromodulators (Botox/ Dysport) along the top lip. The medication relaxes the top lip muscle stopping your lip from hiding and curling in towards your teeth. This allows the upper lip to “flip” upward and outward, creating the appearance of plumper, fuller lip. At rest, you will not notice your lip flip, you will only notice the difference when smiling, taking selfies or talking to your peers. If you are looking for a longer lasting results with more volume and hydration, then filler may be a better choice for you.

Longevity: 2- 3 months on average

Lip filler:

Let’s be honest, lip filler has had a bad reputation for being over filled “duck lips”. Filler has come such a far way with revolutionary science to help prevent this from being the industry norm. At AER Skin Lab we strive for natural looking results to meet your aesthetic goals. We carry the safest fillers that are made with hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our bodies to help cushion and support tissues.

The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to draw in water which is why lips makes the perfect place for injections. The filler helps hydrate and plump your lips while keeping your natural shape. The filler we carry is formulated with an innovative technology that reduces swelling and bruising significantly.  Our fillers contained Lidocaine, a pain-killing aesthetic, this quick and non-invasive procedure is relatively pain-free. 

Results can be noticed immediately after injections, although some swelling may occur so it is important to wait a few days in order to see the final look. 

Longevity: 6-9 months on average

The two procedures can also be used in conjunction for optimal results. If you’re looking for both added volume, as well as control over the shape of your lips, then a combination of the two may be best to achieve your desired end result. The lip flip will define your cupid’s bow and provide your desired shape, while the lip filler will add volume and plump the lips. Book in for a complimentary consultation with our expert Nurse Injectors to help you decide which treatment fits your lip goals.
