Lip Flip Treatment in St. Louis

At St. Louis Skin Solutions, we understand the desire for fuller, more defined lips that enhance your natural beauty. Our Lip Flip treatment is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure designed to give you the perfect pout without invasive surgeries or lengthy recovery times. This comprehensive guide will delve into the intricacies of the Lip Flip treatment, exploring its benefits, the procedure itself, and what you can expect during and after the process.

What is a Lip Flip?

A Lip Flip is a cosmetic procedure involving injecting a small amount of Botulinum Toxin into the upper lip, causing the lip to turn up to reveal more of the lip. The neurotoxins we offer at St. Louis Skin Solutions are Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.  Unlike traditional lip fillers that add volume to the lips, a Lip Flip subtly enhances the appearance of the upper lip by relaxing the muscles above the lip, causing the lip to roll up for a lifted and more pronounced upper lip.

 

The Benefits of a Lip Flip

1. Subtle and Natural Results

One of the key advantages of a Lip Flip is its ability to provide subtle and natural-looking results. Targeting specific muscles allows for a delicate enhancement of the upper lip, avoiding the overfilled and unnatural appearance that can sometimes result from traditional lip fillers.

2. Enhanced Lip Definition

The Lip Flip is an excellent option for individuals seeking enhanced lip definition without a volume change. The treatment accentuates the border of the upper lip, creating a more defined and youthful contour.

3. Quick and Painless Procedure

Unlike surgical lip augmentation procedures, the Lip Flip is a quick and virtually painless treatment. Most sessions take less than 30 minutes, making it convenient for those with busy schedules.

4. Minimal Downtime

Since the Lip Flip is a non-invasive procedure, it requires minimal downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment, making it an attractive option for those who want to enhance their lips without disrupting their routine.

5. Versatility

The versatility of the Lip Flip lies in its ability to complement other cosmetic procedures. It can be combined with traditional lip fillers, dermal fillers, or anti-aging treatments to achieve a comprehensive and personalized facial rejuvenation.

 

The Lip Flip Procedure

Consultation and Assessment

Before undergoing a Lip Flip, a thorough consultation with our experienced practitioners is essential. Your medical history, expectations, and concerns will be discussed during this session. Our skilled injectors will assess your facial anatomy to determine the most suitable approach for your unique features.

Precise Injections

Your expert injector will use a fine needle to inject small amounts of neurotoxin strategically into the Orbicularis Oris muscle above the upper lip. The precise placement of these injections is crucial for achieving optimal results.

Immediate Results

Unlike some cosmetic procedures that require time for results to become apparent, the effects of a Lip Flip are often noticeable within a few days. The upper lip gently flips upward as the muscles relax, creating a more defined and attractive appearance.

 

What to Expect After a Lip Flip?

Temporary Side Effects

It's common to experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites immediately after the procedure. These side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days.

Gradual Enhancement

While some changes may be visible shortly after the treatment, the full effects of a Lip Flip typically develop over the course of a week. During this time, you'll notice a gradual and natural enhancement of your upper lip.

Longevity of Results

The results of a Lip Flip can last anywhere from three to four months. Touch-up sessions can be scheduled as needed to maintain the desired effects.

Post-Treatment Care

For optimal results from your Lip Flip injections, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours after the procedure. Our practitioners will provide personalized post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

    I've visited St Louis Skin Solutions a number of times for various services including laser for scars, visible facial capillaries, botox and fillers. Most of these were my first time receiving the treatment so needless to say, I was nervous. They always do an excellent job and the injections have left me with zero bruising! I will continue to come back, and all the way from the deep urban city limits. Worth it.

    Dr. Miller and her entire team are wonderful. I’ve been thrilled with every treatment I’ve had, as well as the skincare products I now use at home. Because I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve been especially concerned about loose skin, and they’ve been able to help address this - and do so much more! I feel more confident than ever in my appearance.
