How Many Units of BOTOX® are Needed for A Lip Flip?

Featured Image

Not everyone wants dramatic results from cosmetic injections. When it comes to augmented lips, it’s important to make sure they appear natural without seeming “overdone.” A lip flip is an excellent way to improve lip shape and create a pouty look without adding too many lip fillers. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe uses BOTOX wrinkle relaxers to achieve your desired look in Dallas, TX.

So, how many units of BOTOX are needed to perform a lip flip? The amount depends on your current needs and treatment goals. Contact Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery to request a lip assessment and learn how we make subtle but noticeable results.

What is a BOTOX lip flip?

Many of our patients choose wrinkle relaxers over lip fillers because they’re not interested in adding more volume to their features. Instead, BOTOX targets certain muscles to enhance your lip shape. To perform a lip flip, Dr. Dauwe injects a small amount of BOTOX into the treatment area. This relaxes the muscles and causes the lip to roll upward, giving you a pouty appearance.

Lip flips are sometimes recommended for individuals with thin upper lips, or an upper lip that seems to disappear when you smile. Of course, creating the perfect look requires a strong knowledge of facial anatomy, lip proportions, and proper technique. Our clinic is proud to use our knowledge and experience to create the best and most natural-looking lips possible. If you’re still unsure about your results, we can show you before and after photos of previous patients who love their outcomes.

Benefits of BOTOX wrinkle relaxers include:

  • Injections are fast and easy

  • No downtime is needed after treatment

  • Injections are precise and do not impact the surrounding area

How many units of BOTOX do I need?

All wrinkle relaxer appointments are unique because each patient has different lip shapes and cosmetic goals. While some people only require a few units of BOTOX to achieve their desired look, others may need more. Our clinic is careful to only recommend enough product that is safe and effective for your needs. That said, you can enhance your lips with 2 – 10 units of BOTOX wrinkle relaxers in Dallas, TX.

How long until I see results?

Our BOTOX lip flip procedure takes about 10 – 15 minutes at our clinic, and then you can return to your day as normal. Even though lip filler results can be seen right away, it can take several days to notice the outcomes from BOTOX. The full effects are visible up to 10 – 14 days after your initial session with Dr. Dauwe. This is because it takes time for the muscles to relax and respond to the BOTOX. Lip flip results can last for 3 – 4 months, and patients can schedule follow-up sessions so their results last all year long.
