Best Botox Lips Treatment in NYC

Best Botox in NYC: Botox Lips Treatment aka Botox Lip Flip

Whether to get a Botox lip procedure depends on your beauty goals. Traditionally, a dermal filler, such as Juvederm or Belotero, would be considered the best treatment for lips — particularly, if you would like the fuller, pouty look rocked on Instagram and the red carpet. That said, Botox Cosmetic does have application for around the mouth. Smooth Synergy in NYC is your go-to source for everything you need to know about whether it’s right for you. Here’s more about Botox Lips Treatment:

Botox for Lips FAQs

The key words for Botox are “around your lips”. Unlike dermal fillers that are injected directly into the lips to create a plumper appearance, Botox is injected both above and below the lips. As a result, the facial muscles around the mouth will relax. Consequently, the upper lip will flip upward and the lower lip will curl downwards. This will create lips that appear fuller and more open. 

The procedure for lips is very similar to other areas of the face. It’s a quick 10-20 minute procedure, which requires no incisions and makes use of super-fine needles. Because it’s a minimally-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery, it comes with no downtime and is usually considered easily tolerated. For lips, Botox is injected in tiny amounts at key points around the mouth.

Dermal Fillers:
  • Are injected into the lips
  • Plump the upper lips and/or lower lips
  • Add volume
  • Diminish lip wrinkles
  • Typically last between 6-12 months 
Botox:
  • Is injected around the mouth
  • Flips the upper lip and/or lower lip
  • Works on vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Results in a fuller, more open mouth
  • Typically lasts between 3-6 months

In general, the goal of the Botox lip flip is to relax the muscles around the mouth locally, while assuring the mouth has a full range of motion. What that means is that a small amount of Botox is both needed and desired. Therefore, it, typically, costs less than other areas, such as Botox for frown lines around the forehead. That said, Botox price and units always depend on your desired treatment outcomes. Additionally, you may want to consider pairing Botox with a dermal filler, in order to get the lip plumping volume you’re looking for.
