Which procedure best suits my needs?

Choosing the right cosmetic procedure for enhancing your lips can be a daunting task. At Faces Medical Aesthetics Clinic, we aim to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. In this article, we will explore the differences between the Botox Lip Flip and Dermal Fillers for lips, helping you understand which option might be more suitable for your individual needs.

BOTOX LIP FLIP for Subtle Enhancement:

A Botox Lip Flip is a non-invasive procedure that uses Botox injections to relax the muscles around the upper lip. This relaxation causes the upper lip to flip outward slightly, giving the appearance of a fuller lip without adding volume. The effects are subtle and natural-looking, ideal for those who want a slight enhancement without a drastic change. It last roughly 2 months and is popular before holidays or special events or ideal for those whoare unsure about the longer lasting enhancements of Dermal Fillers.

Benefits of the Botox Lip Flip

  • Subtle Enhancement: Perfect for those seeking a natural look.

  • No Added Volume: Enhances the appearance of the lip without making it larger.

  • Quick Procedure: Typically takes about 10-15 minutes.

  • Minimal Downtime: Most clients resume normal activities immediately.

Dermal Fillers for Lips: Plump, hydrated, Voluminous Lips

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are designed to add volume and definition to the lips. Using hyaluronic acid-based fillers, this procedure provides more noticeable results, making lips appear fuller and more contoured. This is an excellent option for those looking to significantly enhance their lip size and shape..

Benefits of Dermal Fillers for Lips

  • Enhanced Volume: Adds significant fullness and definition to the lips.

  • Customisable Results: Allows for tailored adjustments to achieve the desired look.

  • Long-Lasting Effects: Results typically last up to 12 months.

  • Immediate Results: Visible improvement right after the procedure.

Which Procedure is Right for You?

Deciding between a Botox Lip Flip and dermal fillers depends on your aesthetic goals and preferences:

  • Botox Lip Flip is ideal if you want a subtle enhancement without adding volume.

  • Dermal Fillers are better suited if you desire fuller, more voluminous lips with defined contours.
