Dr. Roxy and the ROXY girls break down everything you need to know about today’s most popular injectables, the difference between a lip flip and lip fillers, and how to get a signature ROXY pout!
Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, and Scarlett Johansson are some of the many celebs who are rocking enviable pouts. We just can’t get enough of their voluptuous, bee-stung lips.
It’s no surprise that these influencers have inspired many individuals to take the plunge and augment their lips. The procedure has virtually become as common as getting a pedicure or waxing your eyebrows. As the demand for fuller lips grows, so has the need for cosmetic surgeons to find solutions beyond using filler. That’s where the latest trend comes into play. Meet the lip flip.
So, what’s the difference between using lip filler and the lip flip? Let’s break it down.
Okay, so injecting a muscle relaxer into your lips seems a bit odd, right? But hear us out. injectables like Botox, Dysport, or Kysse are effective because they help restrict the nerve signals within your muscles, ultimately preventing the injected muscle from contracting. How does this affect your lips?
When small doses are injected into the muscle, just above the top border of your lip, it causes the top lip to gently roll out, or “flip,” creating the illusion of added volume. In essence, you’re scoring a sexy pout without your lips actually becoming fuller. While results differ from person to person, you can expect your lip flip to last approximately two to four months. The effects are subtle, natural, and oh-so-sexy.
Ahh…the trusty lip filler – it never fails to deliver a voluptuous ROXY pout. A lip augmentation works by injecting a filler, like Juvederm or Volbella, which house similar compounds to ones naturally created within the body, directly into your lips. This creates a fuller look. Lip fillers are generally longer-lasting and you can expect to see results for six to ten months!
When you opt for a lip augmentation, there is no illusion, your lips are larger and enhanced.
If you’re someone looking for a more subtle effect, or you’d like to test the waters before taking the plunge and choosing a longer-lasting solution, the lip flip is a great way to achieve a slight pout.
What you won’t get from the lip flip that lip fillers provide is longer-lasting results. Additionally, fillers give you more plumping and volume to both your top and bottom lip, as well as a sharper, more defined border. As with the lip flip, a lip augmentation treatment is performed in-office, takes only minutes to administer, and has little to no downtime.
Another highly sought-after solution is using lip fillers in conjunction with the lip flip. The result? An even lip line, a fuller pout, and soft, kissable lips that’ll have you lipstick ready in no time.
