What Is Botox® For The Lips?

Botox®, when injected into the lips can minimize creases in the upper and lower lip area, elevate the corners of your mouth, remove marionette lines, or lines that run downward from the corners of your mouth. Even better, Botox® can also give the appearance of fuller lips.

Botox® can also enhance the upper lip, also known as the Botox® Lip Flip.

How these lip injections affect your lips depends on where they are injected.

How Does Botox® For The Lips Work?

Multiple units of Botox® are injected into various different areas surrounding the lips. When the muscles relax, your lips will have a chance to be plumped. What’s more, the skin surrounding your mouth will appear smooth!

Botox® Lip Flip: Botox® is injected into the upper lip to subtlely shape the lips into a “pouty” look. The product is used to gently roll the lip line outward, creating the illusion of bigger, fuller lips, but without the use of additional fillers. However, to achieve a fuller, sexier pout, you can combine botox® and fillers.

Are There Side Effects?

An injection of Botox® may have some common side effects, such as discomfort or pain at the injection site. Though rare, other, more serious side effects can occur, such as an allergic reaction. To find out if Botox® is right for you, consult with your doctor. A thorough consultation should result in a fully informed decision.
