Full lips are a sexy, alluring asset that can enhance your smile and pout. Dermal fillers can add volume and plumpness but may not widen the pink portion of the lips. For a bigger and better pout, a Botox lip flip can change the shape of your lips and mouth. Our talented aesthetics team at Arcadia Wellness Center in Phoenix offer stunning Botox lip flips and enhancements to give you the sexy, youthful pout you desire.
What Is a Botox Lip Flip?
There are different muscles that control the movement and position of your lips, even when your mouth is relaxed. The orbicularis oris are muscles around the mouth that control the position of the lips. When the right amount of Botox is injected into specific areas of the orbicularis oris, the contraction of the muscle is blocked. This can allow the lip to curve outward or “flip” to reveal more of the vermillion or pink lip tissue. This does not make the lips plump but can have other benefits. These include:
- Widening thin lips
- Reducing a “gummy smile” (less gums are visible below the top lip)
- Creating a larger lip without extra volume
- A lip flip can be combined with dermal fillers for wider and plumper lips
Botox effects can require a few days to occur. Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks signals to the targeted muscle, keeping it relaxed and preventing contraction. The Botox effects can last 3-4 months, keeping lips wider and more pronounced by allowing the lip to roll outward. Only the specific region of the orbicularis oris is affected, allowing for normal movement of the lips for speaking and smiling.
