Dr Love Mt Pleasant | The lip flip

Shared by Dr Love Mt Pleasant.

According to Dr Travis Love, lip flip is a non-surgical way to achieve the look of a fuller upper lip with a perfectly defined cupid’s bow. By injecting Botox (botulinum toxin A), a doctor can relax the muscles above the lip. This causes the upper lip to curl, or flip, more upwards instead of being held down by what is normally a tense muscle. By doing this, the lip flip creates the illusion of a fuller and bigger lip without the price of more expensive fillers. Despite it only now becoming mainstream, Dr Love Mt Pleasant is an expert at the procedure and has been doing the Lip Flip since 2009.

Why get a lip flip?

If you’re like most people, your lips are probably on the smaller side. When you have small lips, it’s hard not to dwell on them or wonder what they would look like if they were fuller. It’s no wonder so many people are in search of ways to enhance them. Fortunately, there are a number of methods that you can use to give thin lips some much-needed volume. When it comes to the options available, they range from ineffective to expensive. The Dr Love Mt Pleasant lip flip is an option that is much more effective and lasting than useless at-home methods while still being relatively noninvasive and comes with a much more affordable price than fillers or surgery.

How it works

According to Dr Love Mt Pleasant, Botox is designed to relax the muscles around your mouth and lips, causing lines to smooth over and the upper lip to turn more upwards for a fuller appearance. Well-placed botulinum toxin injections by Dr Travis Love can soften lines and enhance the appearance of the upper lip with an effect that will last anywhere from two to five months.

Who should get a lip flip?

Anyone who wants a more defined and fuller appearing upper lip.
It’s also a great option for anyone wanting to hide their gums when they smile. If you feel that too much gum is visible when you show your pearly whites, a lip flip by Dr Travis Love may be the most effective option for dealing with it.
If you are new to lip enhancement and still testing the waters, it’s also a good treatment to start with because it is a relatively low investment, requires no downtime, and wears off after a few months.

The facts

According to Dr Love Mt Pleasant, there are a few things to know about before deciding if a Botox lip flip is the right choice for you:

  • The average treatment time is between ten and twenty minutes.
  • You can go about your day immediately. No recovery time is necessary.
  • It takes four to six days to see full results.
  • Your results will last from two to five months.
  • The option is more affordable than fillers.
  • There may be some bruising.

Combining options

While the lip flip procedure creates the appearance of a fuller upper lip, it does not add to the actual volume of the lip. If you need lips that are fuller, fillers may be a more suitable option. In many cases, they can also be used along with Botox in the same appointment. Contact Dr Love NeuLogics to make an appointment and find out what will work best for you.
