Lip Flip or Filler?

Have you been thinking about plumping up your pout? You might be considering lip filler or a lip flip. Both treatments can give you fuller, more defined lips, but they work in different ways and have varying pros and cons.

Lip filler involves injecting a substance, usually hyaluronic acid, into your lips to add volume and shape. The procedure is usually quick and straightforward; you can immediately see the results. The effects of lip filler typically last for 6-12 months, depending on the type of filler used and your body’s metabolism.

One of the main benefits of lip filler is that it can give you a more defined and voluminous look, especially if you have thin or uneven lips. Lip filler can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines around your mouth, giving you a youthful appearance. You may experience swelling, bruising, and soreness after the treatment, and there is a small risk of more severe complications, like infections or allergic reactions. In addition, the effects of lip filler are not permanent, so you’ll need touch-up treatments to maintain the results.

A lip flip, on the other hand, is a non-invasive treatment that uses small amounts of Botox to relax the muscles around your lips. This causes your lip to roll outward, creating the appearance of a fuller lip. 

The main benefit of a lip flip is that it’s a quick and easy procedure with minimal downtime. The effects of a lip flip take about two weeks to take effect fully and typically last for about three months. However, the results of a lip flip are less dramatic than those of lip filler, so there may be better options if you want a more significant change in your lip appearance.

So, what’s the best choice for you? It depends on your goals and preferences and the advice of an experienced injector like what you see at Sonder State Aesthetics. Lip filler can give you more dramatic and longer-lasting results, but it’s more invasive and a larger investment. Lip flips are less invasive and have fewer potential side effects, but the results aren’t as dramatic. We’d love to give you a recommendation based on your desired outcome.
