Make Your Lips Look Fuller

The lip flip is an injectable treatment that offers a subtle yet effective enhancement for your smile. The procedure involves injecting a neurotoxin like Botox into targeted regions to relax the muscles around the upper lip. This creates a gentle upward curl, resulting in the appearance of fuller, more alluring lips. Our cosmetic providers personalize the botulinum toxin dosage according to your unique needs, ensuring natural-looking results that complement your smile.

Concerns Treated:

  • Lack of lip definition
  • Minimal lip volume
  • Uneven lip appearance

The Science

The lip flip involves injecting botulinum toxin (Botox) into the corners of your mouth and the edges of your lips. Neurotoxins can relax and temporarily paralyze targeted muscles. As such, injecting Botox into the orbicularis oris muscle around the lips leads to temporary relaxation, making the upper lip roll slightly outward. The lip flip in Valparaiso subtly enhances the lip’s appearance by exposing more of the upper lip, creating a fuller and poutier look.

The Benefits:

  • Subtle enhancement
  • Natural-looking results
  • Quick procedure
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Little to no downtime
  • Temporary effects
  • Enhanced lip symmetry

Lip Flip vs. Lip Fillers

Lip flip and lip fillers are popular options for enhancing your lips, but they work differently. A lip flip uses botulinum toxin to relax the upper lip muscles, creating a subtle outward roll and fuller appearance. Lip fillers, on the other hand, add volume to the lips using hyaluronic acid-based substances. The choice between the two depends on your goals: lip flip offers a more subtle enhancement, while lip fillers provide more noticeable volume.

Your Experience


During your lip flip treatment, the cosmetic provider will first cleanse the treatment area and may apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Using a fine needle, they will strategically inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into the corners of your mouth and the edges of your upper lips. The injections for your lip flip in Valparaiso take only a few minutes and are relatively painless — most clients describe the sensation as a little pinch. You can resume your daily activities immediately afterward.


After the lip flip treatment, you might experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these usually subside within a few days. There’s little to no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. To optimize results, avoid touching the treated area for the first few hours and refrain from intense physical activity for the rest of the day. It’s also recommended not to massage the treated area.


You’ll start noticing the subtle results of the lip flip within a few days as your upper lip relaxes and turns outward. The full effect becomes apparent in about a week. These results typically last around 3 to 4 months, as the botulinum toxin gradually wears off. To maintain your enhanced lip appearance, you can schedule follow-up treatments as needed. Our cosmetic provider can help you determine the best schedule for your lip flip in Valparaiso to achieve your goals.
