What Is the Difference Between a Lip Flip and Lip Filler?

While both are forms of lip enhancement, lip flips and lip fillers work differently and achieve different effects.

A lip flip injects a small dose of a neurotoxin, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, into the areas surrounding the upper lip. As the treatment takes effect, the injected muscles are prevented from contracting, which naturally causes the lip to subtly turn outward. The goal of a lip flip is to create the appearance of a slightly fuller lip without actually adding volume. Due to the small dose of neurotoxin, this effect usually lasts between two and four months before wearing off.

Lip fillers, on the other hand, are a lip augmentation method that involves injecting a dermal filler into the lip. These lip injections can increase volume, smooth wrinkles, or improve shape.

How Do Fillers Work For Lip Enhancement?

Lip fillers are used not only to increase the size of your lips, but also to correct the shape.

As we age lips become thinner and smaller. The distance between the nose and lips increases because the furrow, (Phyltrum) between the upper lip and the nose may get flatter.

Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the phyltrum and a well-trained and experienced physician can recreate the lost volume in the phyltrum. Lip fillers can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles around the lips and correct the so-called commissure lines that develop at the corners of your lips.

"Great Experience

Dr. Aurora DeJuliis, I wanted to personally let you know that I am so excited by the way I look after I came to your office last Tuesday. My lips look great and the lines on my face are much less noticeable. I am very happy with the service and attention I received at your spa; it has been a great experience!"

- Linda M.

How Soon Will I See Results After Lip Injections?

The results can be seen immediately after lip injections. Lip fillers are usually very safe.
Possible side effects can include: bruising, mild discomfort and swelling.

What to Avoid Right After Your Lip Procedure

After your treatment, it's important to be mindful of the pressure and friction on your lips to avoid any irritation, swelling, bruising, or displacement of the filler. 

Dr. DeJuliis recommends avoiding intense physical activity for 48 hours after the lip injections, which includes engaging in activities like kissing, oral sex, and using a straw. 

However, work, school, or other regular activities that do not put pressure on the lips can be resumed immediately after the procedure. Cold compresses can be used to decrease the swelling.

How Long Does a Lip Filler Treatment Last?

While the effects of lip fillers are not permanent, they are longer-lasting than some other types of lip augmentation. Lip fillers can last for anywhere between 12 and 18 months, depending on your unique factors.

The beauty of hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers is that they use an ingredient that's naturally produced by the body. Over time, the filler is naturally and safely absorbed into the body, at which point you can schedule follow-up treatments to maintain their effect.

Risks vs. Benefits of Lip Fillers

Many of the major risks of lip fillers can be avoided by going to an experienced medical professional. Lip fillers should never be administered by an untrained injector, who can leave your lips looking crooked or commit a serious error such as injecting filler into an artery.

Choosing a trained expert injector like Dr. Aurora DeJuliis can help ensure that you enjoy the many benefits lip fillers have to offer, such as:

  • Improved confidence
  • Little to no downtime
  • Natural looking lips
  • Immediate results
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Minimal side effects
