The lip flip is the cosmetic treatment of 2021. It only takes a minute to perform and can subtly turn out the upper lip to make the lips appear fuller. At Cityskin in Melbourne we love lip flips so book a free consultation with one of our experienced practitioners.
What is a lip flip?
A lip flip is a procedure using anti-wrinkle injections to turn out the upper lip and make the lips appear fuller. At Cityskin clinics in Melbourne we charge $150 for the lip flip procedure when treating this area alone. Lip flip treatment tends to last for up to 8 weeks and wears off quicker than other cosmetic areas of the face because we use light units in the lip area.
The video below shows Dr Brown explaining everything you need to know about the lip flip treatment.
How does a lip flip work?
The lip flip works by relaxing the muscle around the mouth with anti-wrinkle injections. In a few days, when the anti-wrinkle product starts to work, the upper lip can subtly turn outwards giving the appearance of a fuller upper lip. In some patients the lip flip treatment can also help reduce a ‘gummy smile‘.
How much does a lip flip cost at Cityskin in Melbourne?
The cost of a lip flip at Cityskin clinics in Melbourne is $150. At Cityskin we do not charge a consultation fee.
How many units do you need for a lip flip?
How long do lip flip results last?
Lip flip results tend to last up to 8 weeks. The treatment does not last as long as other areas of the face because smaller units are used when treating the upper lip.
What are the risks of a lip flip?
Risks of a lip flip procedure include:
- A small bruise at the injection points
- Temporary muscle weakness in the upper lip making it more difficult to purse the lips and use a straw
Side effects are mild and are likely to wear off within 2 weeks.
