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 we charge $150 for the lip flip procedure when treating this area alone
  • Lip flip treatment lasts for up to 8 weeks

How many units do you need for a lip flip?

An anti-wrinkle ‘unit’ is a measured amout of product. We usually use between 2 and 4 units of anti-wrinkle product to turn the lip out. The injection points that we use are shown below with 0.5 – 1 unit used at each injection site (yellow dots).

How much does a lip flip cost?

The cost of the lip flip treatment is between $24 and $48 when we treat this area in conjunction with other areas of the face. To read more about anti-wrinkle costs at Cityskin click here

When we treat the lip flip alone we charge $150. At Cityskin we do not charge a consultation fee.

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.
