Botox Lip Flip

WHAT IS THE BOTOX LIP FLIP?


So, you’re thinking about getting your lips done, but you are held up by two things:


  • 1.) Cost

  • 2.) You’re scared they’ll be too big or look ‘ducky’.

We get it. We hear it every single day. The cost of Juvederm in the lips can run from $495 – $595, which can be costly for some people. Of course at Biocore Health, we would never make your lips look ‘ducky’ or too big, but if you’re looking for a less-stressful alternative to getting that perfect pout, try the Botox Lip Flip!

In a nutshell, to achieve the perfect Botox Lip Flip, Botox is strategically injected into the superficial layers of the orbicularis oris (muscles around the mouth, see photo) to relax the muscle fibers just enough to flip the lip outward without losing the function of the muscle. Botox around lips also treats lip lines, aka “smoker line”.

How long does the Botox Lip Flip take?


Less than a minute! The Botox Lip Flip is an insanely fast procedure, but don’t think you can go just anywhere to have this done. The Botox Lip Flip is a complicated procedure and must be done properly by a professional Botox provider who has extensive experience in administering this procedure. Care must be taken to use enough Botox to see an effect, but not too much to affect the ability to use a straw.


How much does the Botox Lip Flip Cost?


We have seen patients need 2-4 units for the Botox Lip Flip, and we have seen patients need up to 6 units. Biocore charges $11-13/unit (depending on location), so it will depend how many units the provider recommends. Typically, only 1-2 units of Botox is needed in each lip line. Say you need 6 units, your cost would be only $72! If you are a Core VIP Member, it would be even lower! Platinum Members receive Botox for $10/unit, so it would cost $60 if you are Platinum Member receiving 6 units

How long does the Botox Lip Flip last?

The ONLY catch with the Botox Lip Flip is how long it lasts. Typically, Botox in the lips only lasts about 6-8 weeks, but for the cost, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth and LOVE your pout. One good thing about Botox in the lips is that you typically don’t have to wait the full 7 days to see results, the lip flips right away (results can vary). While Botox in other areas of the face lasts 3-4 month, it also can take up to 14 days to kick in. Botox Lip Flip usually hits right away.
