On every drugstore shelf, you'll find a new product that promises to make your lips fuller and more luscious. But if you're tired of expensive over-the-counter solutions, it may be time to take the plunge into cosmetic treatments like BOTOX. BOTOX lip flip injections are a revolutionary way to create a pouty appearance that lasts.

Anyone who wants to heighten the look of their lips can schedule a wrinkle relaxer appointment in San Jose, CA. BOTOX can last 3 – 4 months or longer before needing a follow-up treatment. Read on for expert advice from board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Maia Chakerian at Sereno Santé!

What are BOTOX lip flip injections?

Our lips slowly lose volume and definition as we age. This is due to factors like sun exposure, loss of collagen, and smoking. In the past, loss of lip volume has been addressed with surgical implants. While lip implants can create appealing results, they may not give you the outcomes you want. Some people find that implants provide results that are too dramatic, or they simply aren't interested in going under the knife.

Fortunately, you have another lip enhancement option. Over the past few years, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX have gained popularity in our office. When a wrinkle relaxer is injected into the muscle over the upper lip, it rolls slightly upward, creating a "pouty" look. This gives patients the illusion of fuller lips and smoothes out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

Why get the BOTOX lip flip?

The BOTOX lip flip is a versatile procedure that can be used on people of all needs and backgrounds. Whether your lips are small, thin, or lack definition, wrinkle relaxers can enhance them. During your consultation in San Jose, CA, Dr. Chakerian can examine your face and listen to your goals before determining how treatment could be used for you. Benefits of lip enhancement with BOTOX include:

  • Create a pouty look on your lips

  • Treat fine lines around the mouth

  • Enjoy a more youthful appearance

  • Boost your confidence and self-esteem

How long does BOTOX last?

BOTOX takes about 15 – 20 minutes and can be done during a regular office visit with our team. When you renew BOTOX, we check whether other areas of your face also need cosmetic enhancement. If your forehead exhibits lines or Crow's feet around the eyes, we may recommend a separate wrinkle relaxer appointment to address those anti-aging concerns.

While some patients maintain their results for 3 – 4 months, others find that they last longer, depending on skin type and how well they take care of their skin. We often recommend touch-ups every six months once you have established a baseline look with enough time to see how your face responds before going back in for more injections.
