Social media has caused a shift in attitudes toward cosmetic treatments, from Botox and filler to lip flips. The latter is a “tweakment” that’s currently trending on social media. On TikTok, #lipflip has 64.4 million views.
But, what’s a lip flip? The treatment uses a neuromodulator (like Botox or Xeomin) to mimic the effects of lip filler, though the results are less dramatic. “When added to the upper lip, it gives the appearance of a fuller top lip.” said Christina Nalbone, nurse practitioner and director of clinical education and operations at Ever/Body. She said that the treatment is pretty painless and that results are visible in 3-5 days. They last for about 6-8 weeks. The appointment is also quick — around 15 minutes, with no downtime.
