Lip Flip

Enhance Your Smile with a Subtle Lip Flip

In the world of cosmetic enhancements, the quest for fuller, more defined lips has led to the rise of the lip flip. This is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that promises a subtle yet striking transformation. This treatment uses the power of Botox which is injected to relax the muscles around the lips.

Lip flip has quickly gained popularity for its ability to deliver natural-looking results without the commitment or cost of traditional lip fillers. It’s a great option for those that want a subtle effect with minimal downtime and no complicated aftercare. As with any cosmetic procedure, understanding the process, potential benefits, and associated risks is crucial in making an informed decision.

Anti-wrinkle injections can do more than just smooth out wrinkles. This treatment is surprisingly versatile and can help with many different facial concerns. This can lift your eyebrows for a more awake look and even soften lines on your nose (called bunny lines). If you have a downturned mouth, a smile that shows too much gum, or problems with teeth grinding, anti-wrinkle injections might help. This can also smooth out a bumpy and dimpled chin. All these options show how adaptable these injections are in helping you achieve the look you want.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections offered at House of Beauty are done by our senior injector and founder, Anna Hannaford, who brings a wealth of experience to her craft.

Her extensive training from top international programs equips her with a profound knowledge of facial aesthetics, which she applies to each personalised treatment plan. Anna’s approach is anchored in safety, efficacy, and a commitment to enhancing each client’s natural beauty through meticulous and tailored care.

What is Lip Flip Procedure?

A lip flip is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses botulinum toxin to relax the muscles around your lip, making your lip look fuller without the use of dermal lip fillers. This technique targets the orbicularis oris muscle, responsible for the inward curl of the upper lip when smiling. By relaxing these muscles, the upper lip gently rolls outward, creating the illusion of fuller, more defined lips.

The number of units of botulinum toxin used for a lip flip procedure typically ranges from 2 to 4 units. The exact number of units can vary based on individual anatomy and desired results, and it’s determined during the consultation with your injector based on your specific needs.

Unlike traditional lip fillers that add volume, an anti-wrinkle injection for lip flip offers a more subtle enhancement, giving the lips a more defined and pouty look. You can expect to start seeing results in a few days, with the full effect visible within 10 to 14 days. 

This treatment is an attractive option for those seeking a slight modification rather than a drastic change, providing a temporary yet noticeable improvement in lip appearance.

How Lip Flip Works

Lip flip works by targeting the muscles that control the shape and movement of the lips. Here’s a breakdown of the process:

Muscle Relaxation: Botulinum toxin is injected into the muscle around your lips, which is the circular muscle that controls the movement and puckering of the lips. This temporarily relaxes this muscle, allowing it to soften and roll slightly outward.

Lip Enhancement: By relaxing the muscle around your lips, the upper lip is allowed to flip or roll upward and outward, creating the appearance of a fuller, more prominent pout. The lip flip does not add volume but rather enhances the shape and definition of the existing lip.

Wrinkle Reduction: The anti-wrinkle injections can also help to soften and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lip area, resulting in a smoother and more youthful look.

Subtle Effect: The lip flip is designed to create a subtle, natural-looking enhancement. The degree of the “flip” can be controlled by the amount of botulinum toxin injected and the precise placement of the injections.

Gradual Onset: The full effects of the lip flip typically develop over a few days to a week as the treatment takes effect and the muscle relaxation occurs.

Temporary Results: The results of the lip flip are temporary, typically lasting 3-4 months before the effects gradually wear off as the treatment metabolizes. Maintenance treatments are required to maintain the desired lip enhancement.

By understanding the targeted approach of the lip flip procedure, you can appreciate the nuanced way it enhances the lip shape and contour without adding excessive volume or creating an overly “done” look.

Benefits of Lip Flip

The lip flip procedure offers several benefits that make it an attractive option for those seeking subtle lip enhancement. This procedure can provide subtle yet noticeable lip enhancement, boosting your confidence and overall appearance. When considering a lip flip, think about how the results will align with your aesthetic goals and enhance your natural features.

Easy and Quick Procedure

The lip flip is a non-surgical procedure that typically takes just 10-20 minutes to complete. It’s a quick and easy treatment that can be done during a lunch break or as part of a regular beauty routine.

Minimally Invasive

Unlike fillers or surgical lip augmentation, the lip flip is a minimally invasive procedure that involves tiny injections into the muscle around your lips. This reduces the risk of complications and downtime associated with more invasive procedures.

Natural-Looking Results

The lip flip is designed to enhance the natural shape and contour of the lips, rather than creating an overly augmented or artificial look. The results are subtle and natural-looking, allowing for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.


The degree of lip enhancement can be customized by the amount of botulinum toxin injected and the precise placement of the injections. This allows for a personalized approach to achieve the desired level of lip enhancement for each individual.

Low Downtime

Unlike surgical procedures, the lip flip typically requires little to no downtime. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment, with minimal side effects or recovery time.

How Much Does Lip Flip Cost?

The cost of a lip flip treatment typically ranges from £70 to £200 per session. The exact price can vary based on the clinic’s location, with clinics in major cities or upscale areas often charging higher rates. Additionally, the practitioner’s expertise plays a role, as highly skilled and sought-after professionals command higher fees. The units of botulinum toxin required for the desired results can also impact the cost, with more units needed potentially increasing the price.

The relatively low cost of a lip flip, compared to other cosmetic procedures, stems from the small amount of botulinum toxin used, allowing for subtle lip enhancement without adding excessive volume. Some clinics offer package deals or discounts for multiple sessions, which can help reduce the overall cost for maintaining results over time. Financing options or payment plans may also be available at certain clinics to make the procedure more accessible.

While cost is an important consideration, prioritizing quality and safety by choosing a reputable clinic with experienced practitioners is crucial to ensure the best results and minimize potential risks associated with the procedure.

Preparation and Procedure for Lip Flip

At House of Beauty, we take a personalized approach to lip flip procedures to cater to your own uniqueness. Here’s a detailed guide on how to prepare for your treatment:

Initial Consultation

The first step in preparing for your lip flip treatment is to schedule an initial consultation. During this consultation, you will discuss your aesthetic goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have. Anna Hannaford, our senior injector, will assess your lips and recommend the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. This is also a good time to ask any questions you have about the procedure, recovery, and expected results.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

Before your lip flip appointment, Anna will provide specific pre-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results and minimize complications. You may be advised to avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, stay hydrated, and refrain from consuming alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours before the procedure. Additionally, avoiding smoking for at least 24 hours before the treatment can promote better healing.

Day of Procedure

On the day of your lip flip treatment, ensure you arrive with a clean, makeup-free face to reduce the risk of infection and allow Anna to work on a clear skin. A topical numbing cream may be applied to your lips to minimize discomfort during the injections, so allow some time for the numbing agent to take effect.

Lip Flip Injection Procedure

During the lip flip injection procedure, Anna will carefully do the injection into specific areas around your lips to achieve the desired shape. She will ensure precise placement and symmetry, enhancing your lips while maintaining a natural appearance. Try to relax and stay calm, as the procedure is usually quick, taking about 20 minutes to complete.

At House of Beauty, we take pride in offering expert anti-wrinkle injection treatments meticulously done by our founder, Anna Hannaford. She brings over ten years of dedicated experience to her craft. Her extensive training from top international programs equips her with a profound knowledge of facial aesthetics, which she applies to each personalised treatment plan.

Lip Flip Recovery and Aftercare

First Few Days

After receiving lip flip, you may experience swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the treated area. These side effects are normal and typically subside within a few days.

Avoiding Irritants

Avoid excessive salt intake, as it can contribute to increased swelling. Additionally, avoid using lip products containing harsh ingredients, such as retinoids or exfoliants, until the lips have fully healed.

Lip Care

Proper lip care is crucial during the recovery period to prevent infection and promote healing. Avoid touching or manipulating the treated area, and use a gentle lip balm or ointment.

Avoid Excessive Movement

Keep facial movements to a minimum immediately after the procedure. This includes limiting activities like drinking through a straw or excessive talking, which might affect the results.

Stay Upright

For the first few hours post-procedure, avoid bending over or lying down. This helps prevent any unnecessary swelling or shifting of the product.

Follow Up

This is often scheduled a few weeks after the initial treatment to assess the results and address any concerns you may have. Anna can make any necessary adjustments and ensure that you are satisfied with the outcome.

Lip Flip Common Risks and Complications

While lip flip is generally considered a safe and minimally invasive procedure, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks and complications that can occur. Proper precautions and aftercare can help minimize these risks.

Bruising and Swelling: These are common side effects after receiving anti-wrinkle injections for a lip flip. This is typically temporary and should subside within a few days to a week.

Asymmetry: In some cases, lip flip may result in an asymmetrical or uneven appearance of the lips. This can occur if the injection is not done evenly or if there is an underlying muscle imbalance.

Muscle Weakness: Botox used in a lip flip can temporarily weaken the muscles around the mouth, which may lead to difficulty with certain facial expressions or movements, such as pursing the lips or whistling.

Excessive Flip: If too much botulinum toxin is injected or the injections are placed incorrectly, the lip may appear overly flipped or rolled, resulting in an unnatural or exaggerated look.

Drooping or Sagging: In rare cases, the botulinum toxin can diffuse into neighboring muscles, causing unintended effects like drooping or sagging of the lips or mouth area.

Allergic Reactions: Although uncommon, some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the anti-wrinkle injections, which can cause symptoms like redness, swelling, or difficulty breathing.

Infection: As with any injection procedure, there is a small risk of infection if proper sterilization and hygiene protocols are not followed.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is a lip flip different from lip augmentation using dermal fillers?

A lip flip is a non-surgical procedure that uses Botox to achieve fuller lips by manipulating muscle movements, while lip augmentation with dermal fillers involves injecting filler directly into the lips to increase volume and shape.

What are the potential side effects of a lip flip?

Some potential side effects of a lip flip procedure may include temporary bruising, swelling, redness, or minor discomfort at the injection site. These usually subside within a few days.

How long does it take to see the results of a lip flip?

You may start to see the results of a lip flip within a few days to a week after the procedure, as the muscles around the lip gradually relax and the lip appears fuller.

Is a lip flip treatment a permanent solution for fuller lips

No, a lip flip is not permanent. The effects typically last around 2-3 months, after which the muscles around the lip will gradually regain their normal function, and the lip will return to its original state.

Can a lip flip procedure help with a gummy smile?

Yes, a lip flip procedure can help minimize the appearance of a gummy smile by relaxing the muscles around the lip and causing the upper lip to cover more of the gums when smiling.

What is the cost of a lip flip treatment?

The cost of a lip flip treatment can vary depending on the provider, location, and amount of botulinum toxin units used. On average, it can range from £70 and £200 per treatment session.

At House of Beauty, lip flips are offered at £120. We recommend scheduling a consultation with Anna Hannaford for a personalised assessment and detailed pricing.

How long do the results of a lip flip last?

The results of a lip flip typically last around 2-4 months, after which the effects gradually wear off as the treatment wears off.

What are the risks associated with getting a lip flip?

Risks of a lip flip may include possible bruising, swelling, or temporary asymmetry in the lip area, which are usually mild and subside within a few days.

Can a lip flip be done on both the upper and lower lip?

Yes, a lip flip can be performed on both the upper and lower lip, depending on the individual’s aesthetic goals and desired lip enhancements.

Can a lip flip help correct lip lines or wrinkles?

A lip flip may help reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles around the lips by relaxing the muscles in the upper lip and enhancing lip volume.

What is the cost of a lip flip compared to lip augmentation procedures with fillers?

The cost of a lip flip is usually lower than traditional lip augmentation procedures using dermal fillers, as it involves a smaller amount of botulinum toxin injection. Lip augmentation procedures with fillers can cost anywhere from £200 to £1000 or more per treatment depending on the amount of filler used. A lip flip is generally less expensive, typically costing £70-£200 per treatment.
