First things first, at enhanceskin (Nelson & Marlborough), we believe a smile is one of the best things in life that is free! It’s the perfect way to brighten someone’s day, elevate your mood or show kindness and empathy. But we also know that many people come to us because they don’t like their smile… And that’s sad 😟. One of the most common concerns we see is where clients present because they feel their smile is too gummy. This perception means they don’t feel confident when they smile and often choose to cover their mouth with their hand. This action, in turn, means everybody is missing out on the feel-good factor that a smile generates. But help is at hand; the lip flip can give you the confidence you need to smile!
The Lip Flip – A Confident Smile!
So what exactly is a lip flip? Well, when most people think about lip enhancement, they will automatically think of using dermal fillers. And while we do use dermal fillers for lip treatments, the lip flip differs. It’s a procedure where we inject cosmetic botulinum into the upper lip. The cosmetic botulinum temporarily paralyzes the elevator muscles. The effect of this means that when you smile, your upper lip won’t raise as dramatically, and your smile won’t show as much of your gums.
The Lip Flip is also a good place to start if you want to take baby steps into lip enhancement. This injectable treatment helps relax the top lip and “flip” it outwards, giving it a fuller look. It generally offers a much more subtle effect than fillers, and it’s also a cost-effective alternative.
But, a word of warning. This treatment should only be carried out by an experienced injector. The process is different from using dermal fillers for volume and your injector needs a perfect knowledge of anatomy combined with high levels of skill.
