The quest for plump, luscious lips has gained immense popularity in recent years, driven in part by the viral trend of “lip flips” on social media platforms like TikTok.

While fuller lips are often associated with lip fillers, a lip flip using Botox has emerged as an alternative technique to achieve a subtle yet appealing enhancement.

At beBold Aesthetics near Poolesville, Maryland, we offer the lip flip Botox procedure to help you achieve the perfect pout you’ve always desired.

Understanding the Lip Flip Botox

A lip flip is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses Botox to enhance the appearance of the upper lip. Unlike traditional lip fillers that add volume to the lips, a lip flip relaxes the muscles around the upper lip, allowing more of the natural lip to become visible when you smile.

This subtle adjustment can create the appearance of fuller and shapelier lips.

Is It Right for You?

  1. Subtle Enhancement

A lip flip is an ideal option if you desire a more subtle change in the appearance of your lips. It provides a natural-looking result that enhances your lip shape without the volume associated with lip fillers. It’s perfect for those looking to refine their smile.

  1. Minimal Downtime

One of the advantages of the lip flip procedure is that it involves minimal downtime. You can typically resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. This makes it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules.

  1. Temporary Results

Lip flip results are temporary, lasting for approximately three to four months. If you decide you no longer want the effect, it will naturally wear off over time.

  1. Complementary Treatment

A lip flip can also be used in conjunction with lip fillers for a more comprehensive lip enhancement. Your aesthetic provider at beBold Aesthetics will work with you to determine the best treatment plan to achieve your desired look.

The Procedure

The lip flip Botox procedure is a quick and relatively painless process. It involves the following steps:


Your journey begins with a consultation at beBold Aesthetics. During this meeting, we’ll discuss your goals, assess your lip anatomy, and address any questions or concerns you may have. This consultation is crucial to ensure that the lip flip is the right choice for you.


Once we’ve determined that a lip flip is suitable for you, the actual procedure is performed. A very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of Botox into specific muscles around the upper lip. This temporarily relaxes these muscles, allowing the upper lip to “flip” outward when you smile.

Immediate Results

You’ll start to notice the effects of the lip flip within a few days, with the full result becoming apparent within two weeks. Your lips will appear subtly enhanced, and you’ll be able to enjoy a more defined smile.

Aftercare and Recovery

After the lip flip procedure, you may experience minor swelling or bruising, but these side effects are generally minimal and short-lived. You can use ice packs to reduce swelling, and any bruising can be easily concealed with makeup.

It’s important to follow any aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner at beBold Aesthetics to ensure the best possible results.

If you’re looking to enhance the appearance of your lips with a subtle, natural-looking effect, a lip flip Botox procedure at beBold Aesthetics in Poolesville, Maryland, could be the ideal solution. This minimally invasive treatment offers temporary results and minimal downtime, making it a convenient choice for those seeking a quick enhancement.
