Botox® Lip Flip treatment in Milwaukee, Franklin (formerly L’Image) and Waukesha
The Botox Lip Flip treatment involves about 4-8 units of Botox® being injected above the upper lip, in the center and corners of the mouth. The Botox allows muscles of the upper lip to relax and curl outward, appearing more defined. A Lip Flip can also be used to treat the appearance of a “gummy smile.”
A Lip Flip does not add volume to the upper lip, like lip filler. Learn more about lip filler here.
How Long Does Botox® Last?
Full dose duration of effect is 3-4 months, on average. First time users may notice that the effects don’t last as long, but in some cases, increasing the number of treatments can help the effects last longer as the muscles become retrained. Everyone is unique, and their experiences with Botox® will vary.
