Lip Filler VS. Lip Flip

Lip Filler VS. Lip Flip

When it comes to lip enhancements at Basis Clinic, our objective is to achieve the perfect balance of volume and shape for the most natural results. Lip enhancements are a cosmetic procedure tailored to those seeking fuller, more defined lips. But with so many options available, how do you choose? 

Understanding Lip Enhancement 

Lip Filler: 

Picture this: a plump, hydrated pout that perfectly suits your face. That's the magic of Lip Fillers. By injecting Dermal Fillers into the lips, we can target concerns like thinness, asymmetry, and volume loss. The result? Instant volume, definition, and symmetry for the lips you've always dreamed of. 

Lip Flip: 

Looking for a more subtle enhancement? A Lip Flip might be for you. A Lip Flip is a less invasive option where a small amount of Botox or Dysport is expertly injected throughout the vermillion border which relaxes the muscle around the mouth that tucks the lip under with smiling. By relaxing this muscle, the upper lip gently "flips" outward, creating the illusion of increased volume and definition—all while maintaining a natural-looking appearance. 

Keep in mind that Lip Filler provides a more long-lasting result, with clients noticing results up to 18 months after treatment. In contrast, the small amount of medication (Botox or Dysport) used for a Lip Flip wears off in about 6 weeks. 

Getting Your Perfect Pout at Basis Clinic 

Ready to make your dream pout a reality? It all starts with a free consultation at Basis Clinic. During your consultation, you'll sit down with our RN Injector Deanne Pilsner and Head and Neck Surgeon/Medical Director Dr. Jon Dautremont to discuss your treatment expectations and goals. Based on your unique needs, they'll recommend either Lip Filler or a Lip Flip to achieve your desired look. Sometimes both are utilized to provide the perfect pout.

For Lip Filler Treatment:

 If you opt for Lip Filler, your journey begins with a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Then, RN Injector Deanne Pilsner will expertly inject Restylane Filler into your lips. With over 10 different products to choose from, each treatment is fully customized to your goals. Results are immediate, lasting 6-18 months with minimal downtime. Prices start at $750. 

For Lip Flip Treatment: 

Similarly, if you choose a Lip Flip, the process starts by numbing the area for your comfort. RN Injector Deanne Pilsner will skillfully inject Botox or Dysport into specific muscles around your upper lip. Results gradually appear over the next few days and can last several weeks. Treatments can vary depending on your goals and focus areas, but we typically recommend 8 units for a Lip Flip at $10 per unit. 

Choosing Your Perfect Pout 

While both Lip Fillers and Lip Flips are great solutions for enhancing your natural lip appearance, the choice ultimately depends on your specific concerns and desired outcome. If you want hydration, volume and definition, Lip Filler may be the way to go. On the other hand, if you prefer a more subtle and temporary enhancement or are just starting to entertain the idea of lip augmentation, a Lip Flip could be your perfect solution.
