BOTOX® Lip Flip vs Fillers: Which is Best For You?
Your lips are a central part of your face. When you smile, when you talk, and every time in between, your lips can add to – or take away – from your desired appearance. Many women are unhappy with the way their lips look, especially if they are too thin. Our team at Beleza Surgery in Austin, Cedar Park, Round Rock, and Killeen, TX is dedicated to solving this very problem with a variety of options, including a BOTOX® lip flip or fillers. While both can help you achieve full lips and the look you have always wanted, the question is – which one is right for you?
What are the benefits of a BOTOX lip flip?
If you’re looking to achieve fuller, more attractive lips, you might have a few hesitations, such as cost and if they’ll appear too big (sometimes called “ducky”). At Beleza Surgery, we understand these concerns, and that’s why we offer the less-stressful alternative — the BOTOX lip flip.
A BOTOX lip flip is simple. Our team will strategically inject BOTOX into the superficial layers of muscles around your mouth (called the orbicularis oris). This relaxes the muscle fibers just a touch, allowing the lip to flip outward (without losing the function of the muscle entirely). This approach can also treat lines around the lip, sometimes called “smoker lines.”
While the BOTOX lip flip is effective and budget-friendly, the results aren’t permanent. Typically, BOTOX lip flips will last about 6 – 8 weeks before they start to diminish.
What are the benefits of lip fillers?
If you’re looking for longer-lasting results, you may want to consider lip fillers in Austin, Cedar Park, Round Rock, or Killeen, TX. Lip fillers are injectables that are known as dermal fillers. They are used for treating fine lines and wrinkles, sculpting your jaw and cheek line, and, of course, plumping your lips.
The most common lip fillers are JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers. These fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural building block for your skin. Because they are soft and gel-like, they are perfect for filling small lines and plumping your lips.
Fillers can cost a little more, and you can expect some minor side effects, such as swelling and bruising, for a few days. However, the results are impressive. Lip fillers can last anywhere from six months to a year, leaving you with lips you’ll love for longer.
Is a BOTOX lip flip or lip filler best for you?
Both a BOTOX lip flip and lip fillers can offer impressive results that will enhance the appearance of your lips and your overall face. However, they each have different benefits. Depending on your individual needs and desires, you may want a quick, less-expensive option, like the BOTOX lip flip, or you may opt for a longer-lasting procedure, such as lip fillers.
