- A more rejuvenated and youthful appearance
- Results last up to 1 year
- Improves facial symmetry
- Minimally invasive
- No surgery or anesthesia required

- FDA-approved procedure
What Is a Lip Flip?
Gummy smile Botox injections are quick and minimally invasive. You’ll usually be in and out of the clinic within a few minutes. Our specialists inject small amounts of Botox into the upper lip using a tiny needle. The injections shouldn’t cause much discomfort or require downtime. Patients can return to their usual routines right after the procedure.
Benefits of a Lip Flip
A lip flip is ideal if you are looking for a subtle enhancement that won’t drastically change the look of your lips. It is also a less invasive technique for achieving the illusion of fuller, poutier lips. Additionally, this treatment is a cost-effective alternative compared to lip filler injections.
Furthermore, a Botox lip flip is an excellent solution if you want to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. The lip flip technique prevents the upper lip from disappearing when you smile. Therefore, this method prevents excess teeth from showing, revealing a less gummy smile.
How Long Does a Lip Flip Last?
A Botox lip flip generally lasts between two to five months. A lip flip lasts significantly less compared to lip filler injections, which provide more dramatic results and lasts up to one year.
Are You a Candidate for a Lip Flip?
The best candidates for a Botox lip flip are individuals who have a thin upper lip and are looking to create additional volume in that area. If your upper lip curls upwards, recedes, or disappears completely when you speak, you may be a great candidate for a lip flip. Additionally, if your upper lip exposes excess teeth or gums when you smile, you may benefit from a Botox lip flip and achieve a more balanced and poutier look.
What are Russian Doll Lips?
Russian doll lips are a lip injection technique inspired by the pout of Russian dolls. The primary focus of this lip technique is to create height and volume, specifically in the center of the lips. However, it is often known as a “less is more” technique. This is because the amount of filler used is less than other standard methods. Numerous characteristics define Russian doll lips. These include being heart-shaped, with most of the volume concentrated in the center of the lip. Russian doll lips have a defined cupid’s bow and are flatter than a natural lip. They also have lots of height.
This technique is performed differently compared to traditional lip filler injections. With standard lip injections, an injector injects lip filler in the lip’s border and works inwards. The lips receive added plumpness to the entire top and bottom lip. However, with Russian lips, the injector’s primary focus is injecting the lips vertically. They inject little droplets at a time, beginning from the base of the lip and working their way out. The filler is injected upwards toward the border of the lip, also known as the vermilion border. As a result, most of the added volume and plumpness concentrates in the center of the lips, with a defined Cupid’s bow.
What are Cherry Lips?
Cherry lips, also known as rosebud lips, is a South Korean lip augmentation trend growing in popularity. This technique focuses on plumping the middle areas of the top and bottom lip. They are called “cherry lips” because they are not plumped at the outer corners. Rather, they are plumped in two areas at the top and the bottom of the lips. As a result, the lips look like four plump cherries, with two cherries on the top middle area of the lip and two on the bottom middle area of the lip. By creating fuller-bodied lips, this technique gives a voluptuous, more youthful appearance.
