Botox Lip Flip in Birmingham
MULTI AWARD WINNING LUXURY AESTHETIC CLINIC
Subtle, Natural-Looking Lip Enhancement:
The Lip Flip is your secret to achieving subtly fuller lips without the need for traditional lip fillers.
By naturally relaxing the muscles that cause your lips to turn inward, this innovative treatment helps your lips gently turn outward, adding size and a completely natural appearance.
Understanding the Ageing Process:
Ageing gracefully is a journey we all embark upon, and it often involves the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
The severity and timing of these signs are influenced by both genetics and lifestyle choices. However, many are unaware that there are different categories of lines and wrinkles, each with its own causes and solutions. Dynamic lines are the result of repetitive muscle movements over time, especially when we engage in specific facial expressions. These are the lines that we target with our anti-wrinkle injections.
The Science Behind Botox:
Botulinum toxin type A, widely known as Botox, is a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
It functions by intercepting impulses to the muscles, effectively reducing their movement. At Secret Aesthetics, we exclusively use clinical-grade cosmetic Botox, a prescription-only medication that is meticulously extracted, purified, and diluted from its original paralytic form. Upon injection, Botox temporarily weakens the targeted muscle’s contraction. This, in turn, results in the softening and relaxation of the lines and wrinkles caused by the underlying muscle, unveiling a smoother and more youthful appearance.Although there is currently no known reversal agent for Botox, the body naturally breaks down the toxin over several months, allowing gradual muscle movement to return. The underlying concept is to minimise muscle movement in overactive areas, giving the skin time to recover and rejuvenate, ultimately softening and fading creases and wrinkles.
Tailored Lip Flip Treatment for You:
The flexibility of Botox lies in its ability to adapt to your unique preferences.
Depending on your specific wishes, our experts can adjust the dose and treatment plan to achieve a naturally softened appearance of expressions and lines, or even complete skin texture refinement. During the initial years of treatment, more frequent sessions may be necessary to “re-educate” the muscles.
We strongly recommend commencing Botox treatments before dynamic lines have the chance to transform into deep static lines—those that remain visible even without expression. The optimal timing for this preventive approach varies from person to person, influenced by genetic factors and lifestyle choices such as smoking and sun exposure. In essence, the sooner you address these lines, the more manageable and less invasive the correction process will be.
Botox can also be employed proactively to prevent wrinkles and fine lines from becoming deeply etched into your skin. This is particularly advantageous for those with a genetic predisposition to develop such lines.
The Lip Fip Procedure:
Your journey to subtly fuller lips starts with an in-depth consultation at Secret Aesthetics. During this session, our doctor conducts a facial analysis and evaluates your medical history while considering your personal expectations.
The actual treatment involves the precise administration of controlled Botox doses, administered intramuscularly using a microneedle. While the procedure is generally not painful, you may experience a stinging discomfort. The duration of the procedure varies depending on the number of areas treated but typically lasts just 15 minutes.
Potential Side Effects of Lip Flip Botox:
Immediately after the procedure, you may experience common side effects such as tenderness and redness in the treated area, which can persist for up to 72 hours.
Some individuals may notice a headache, usually resolving within 48 hours. Although bruising at injection points is typically minimal, its severity can vary among individuals. To minimise this risk, we perform a thorough medical evaluation and recommend limiting alcohol intake for 48 hours before and after the procedure to aid in recovery.
Lip Flip Results:
Results typically become visible within 4-10 days following the treatment.
If you do not achieve your desired results within 14 days, additional treatment may be necessary. Generally, results last between 3 to 6 months. It’s important to note that during initial treatment, you may notice some muscle movement returning after approximately 1 month. This variation in timing is normal and may necessitate adjustments in future Botox doses. Over the course of several years with regular treatments, many clients find that they require fewer top-ups as their muscles become “re-trained.”
Post-Treatment Care for Lip Flip:
To optimise your results and ensure a smooth recovery, we recommend the following aftercare:
– Avoid touching, applying makeup, massaging, or rubbing the treated areas for 12 hours, including any facials. This minimises the risk of Botox spreading from its targeted area.
– Refrain from strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
– Stay away from extensive sun exposure and heat, including hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms, for 48 hours.
– Abstain from alcohol for 24 hours to reduce the risk of bruising and Botox spreading from its targeted areas.
Please wait for at least 7 days before considering any chemical peels, laser treatments, or microdermabrasion for the treated area.
Other treatable areas with Botox include:
Other Treatable Areas
Frown Lines – Lines in between our eyebrows. As the name suggests, they become apparent when frowning. Also known as the 11 lines or glabellar lines
Crows Feet – Lines that develop around the outer corner of our eyes, often become visible when we smile
Eye bag Wrinkles – Creases seen underneath and around our eyes more medial than crows feet. This treatment is often complimented with our 3-in-1 Eye Rejuvenation or with Crows Feet treatment
Cobblestone Chin – Ever noticed a bumpy uneven texture to your chin when you’re lifting your lips? Try pursing your lips together or pouting. If you notice dimpling of the skin that is bothering you, Botox can be injected to smooth the skin texture out
Bunny Lines – Wrinkles seen on the sides of the nose, often when smiling or scrunching your tightly.
Gummy Smile – The effects of a strong levator labii muscles, causing gums to show when smiling.
Eyebrow Lift – In some people, a lift can be created on the ends of the eyebrows by injecting Botox in specific areas of the forehead and outer eye.
