Botox Lip Flip and How Does it Work

*Collaborative post.

Over the years, the world has witnessed a shift in beauty trends, with both men and women embracing the idea of enhancing their bodies to look good. However, the focus for many is how to improve or retain the natural look of the face. Many facial procedures have become more popular as many people are now welcoming and accommodating the idea of body enhancement. One such facial producer is the Botox Lip Flip.

The Botox Lip Flip is a non-surgical treatment procedure that gives you voluptuous lips. The process does not involve filling your lips with hyaluronic acid as with dermal fillers. It consists of getting a Botox injection into your mouth corners and the middle of your upper lip.

The injection relaxes the muscles in your upper lip, causing part of your upper lip in your mouth to flip outward and upward, creating a natural-looking pout and giving your lips a fuller appearance. Although Botox lip flip makes your lips look more pronounced, it does not increase lip size.

Difference Between Botox Lip Flip and Lip Fillers

Lip filler and lip flips both have the same aim, to give you full lips with a more natural appearance. However, the procedure for this two differ. Lip fillers involve a surgical procedure, while Botox lip fill is non-surgical. Furthermore, lip flips make the lips appear more plumper, while lip fillers make lips actual full thanks to hyaluronic acid and other fillers that help give your skin a hydrated and structured appearance.

Also, Botox lip flips use a small quantity of Botox on your upper lip to relax the muscle so it can quickly turn upward. This action makes your lips appear fuller by just rearranging without increasing the actual volume of the lips.

Furthermore, dermal lip fillers are more expensive than lip flips. However, lip flips have shorter effects compared to fillers. The impacts of flips can only last up to 4 months, while those of fillers can last up to a year. Also, there is a difference in when the results will be visible after a procedure. The result can be seen immediately for lip fillers, while for flips, you would have to wait for up to a week to see results.

Who Is the Right Candidate for the Facial Procedure?

Many people who want to enhance their facial features or get rid of something on their face that they do not like, such as fine lines and wrinkles, go for surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve their goal. People who opt for non-surgical lip procedures include:

  • Those who want fuller lips without necessary having to put in fillers
  • Individuals who want to enhance their smile
  • Those who want to get rid of upper lines

Lip Flip Procedure and How It Works

Every medical or cosmetic procedure has its dos and don’ts, and it is essential that you understand them before you go in for treatment. For Botox lip flip, you should stay away from blood thinners like aspirin and alcohol for 3 to 4 days before the procedure. Aspirin in the blood makes bruising and swelling worse after a procedure.

During the procedure, you should bear this in mind. The process is short, and it is supposed to take about 10-15 minutes. There will be no numbing before the injection, and this is because the procedure is considered relatively painless.

Your doctor will inject a kind of abobotalinumtoxin A, such as Dysport, Jeauveau, and in this case, Botox, into the middle of your upper lip and corners of the mouth. The goal is to relax the orbicularis Oris muscle found around this mouth region, which helps shape and form the lips. The injection will make the upper lip relax and flip outside, giving you a precise vision of fuller lips.

After the producer is done, you will likely return to your normal activities immediately. However, your upper lip may appear swollen and may feel numb. To get the best results out of the procedure, you are advised to stay clear of alcohol and smoking for 3-4 days after the process, as these two substances increase the risk of infection.

Also, control touching lips until all the numbness and swelling go away; however, you can massage your lips gently to spread the Botox. Also, avoid sleeping in positions that exert pressure on your lips. The procedure results will be visible after the numbness and swelling go down in 7- 14 days.

You must know that Botox lip flips are not permanent, and they can only last 2-4 months. This is because it’s a minute amount of Botox injected into your upper lip. If you notice the effects start to wear off, and you still want to keep the full lip illusion, you can book another appointment for the procedure with your doctor.

Botox lip flips work by blocking signals from the nervous system that occasion muscle movement around the upper lip area.

Another Procedure To Treat Upper Lines

If you are not feeling the Botox lip fillers, you can go for another procedure called Microneedling to take care of your upper lip lines. This cosmetic procedure involves using tiny, sterilized needles to prick the skin. The minute wounds made will cause your skin to produce more elastin and collagen, which heals your skin and helps you look much younger.

Lip lines or smoker lines are fine vertical lines that start from the upper lips and go up towards the nose. Upper lip lines result from dehydration, too much exposure to sunlight, exposure to pollution, lifestyle choices like exercise and diet, and genetics.

You should undertake this process in a doctor’s office. If you want to try it out in another place that is not a doctor’s office, check the person’s credentials thoroughly. Dermatologists and Aestheticians can handle this treatment perfectly. The process is not long. It takes about 10-15 minutes to be complete depending on the size of the area being worked on. For most people, you will need 4-6 treatment sessions to notice the difference in your skin.

What you need to create a great skincare routine

Our daily habits could either help you create a great skincare routine or cause terrible skin. This is why it is very important to pay attention to our daily skincare and lifestyle habits. The skin is the biggest organ, but many people don’t seem to acknowledge that. They tend to see and treat their skin as an accessory, rather than as one of the most important parts of the body.

Creating great skin is easy once you pay attention to your skin type and the products that work well for you. There are millions of skincare products available, but we need to remember that skincare is personal, and what works for your BFF may not necessarily work well for your skin. Hopefully, that fact should guide you as you read many product reviews and browse more and more beauty blogs.

What you need to create a great skincare routine

Time

When it comes to creating a great skincare routine, like many things in life, it takes time. Jumping from one product to other is not a good idea because even great skincare products need time and patience to work. For you to reap the benefits of a good product, take your time with it and see how it goes for a few weeks (between 4 to 6 weeks) before you make up your mind. The only time I don’t recommend you take your time is when a product is causing breakouts or irritation.

Know your skin type

Do you know your skin type? The first step in building a skincare routine that works for you is to know your type of skin. Knowing your skin type is crucial when creating a skincare routine. You need to know if your skin is normal, oily, dry, or combination, before you can get the right products and create a great skincare routine.

Money and the right skincare products

You need the right skincare products for your skin type, and you need adequate time and money to test them all to see how they work for you. A good lotion, face cream, cleanser, toner, and facial mask, are great skincare products to start with. I pay attention to the ingredients of the products I buy since I rather they are not tested on animals and do not contain chemicals. If these are important to you as well, then you need to pay attention to all the ingredients of the skincare products you are interested in trying.

*Collaborative post.

If you’re concerned that the aesthetics of your smile are maybe lacking, there’s plenty you can do to change that. When you stop paying attention to it and you let your dental health and hygiene routines slide, it can often cause problems. So if you’re looking to get things back on track and correct any of the problems and faults that have developed, here’s some information on how to do it.

Fix Your Gum Line

First of all, you’ll need to think about your gum line and how it might be best to fix it if there are issues there. A high gum line can be fixed and it’s a good idea to do so because gum disease and infections are less likely when you have a healthy gum line. You can discuss the treatment options open to you with your doctor if you’re not sure what the right approach to take is.

Enamel Contouring Can Help Balance Your Smile

Contouring is another option if you feel the appearance of your teeth has some inconsistency. Maybe teeth on one side are shaped differently from the other side. If you want to bring more balance to your smile, contouring is a relatively simple and straightforward option that many people are now making the most of. 

Consider Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is another very common cosmetic dental procedure, and it can make people feel a lot less self-conscious about their smiles. That might be just what you need when you’re looking to improve the cosmetic appeal of your smile. Maybe years of drinking coffee and red wine have resulted in some staining that you’re not happy with. Teeth whitening procedures can fix that for you.

Use Aligners While You Sleep

If you want to correct any kind of misalignment that might exist with your smile, it might be a good idea to deal with the problem by using aligners while you’re sleeping. These can be really helpful as they correct any issues overnight and you don’t have to deal with the performance that comes with other options such as braces. It’s proven that nighttime invisible aligners make a difference, so you might want to give them a try.

Cover Cracks with Veneers

Veneers are a good solution for anyone who’s looking to cover up any cracks or damage to their teeth. Veneers offer a layer of protection that can prevent further issues from developing, as well as improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile as well. It’s something you should discuss with your dentist. They’re very common now though, and they might be what you’re looking for.

As you can see, there are lots of things you can do to help improve the aesthetic of your smile, so make the most of the ideas that have been shared here today. Each of them will serve you well and help you to feel more confident about your smile and how it looks. And that should help you carry yourself with more confidence too.
