Botox, when in a skilled practitioner’s hand, can be used in many other ways than just treating wrinkles. When Botox is injected into strategic areas, it can actually help add lift, such as in a Botox brow lift and in the latest, “Botox Lip Flip”.
Botox Lip Flips are quickly becoming the next beauty trend of today, as more and more influencers and patients are raving about this new treatment.
The Botox Lip Flip relaxes the muscles around the mouth which is called the orbicularis oris. This rolls the lip outward creating the illusion of a bigger lip. Those that find that their top lip folds under while smiling can greatly benefit from this treatment.
A Botox Lip Flip is both quick and subtle. Patients can have it done during their lunch break without anyone knowing that anything has been done.
Unfortunately, as the Botox Lip Flip has garnered popularity, many seek to get the same results without using professional methods. Some have begun to glue their upper lip to achieve a fuller pout using eyelash glue. This, of course, can have serious side effects such as tearing of the skin, scaring and nerve damage. The chemicals that are in eyelash glue can cause itching, irritation, redness, and blistering to the sensitive skin of the lip.
To achieve a fuller pout don’t use glue, use Botox.
