Lip Flip in Edinburgh

What is Lip Flip and How Does it Work?

A lip flip procedure involves administering precise amounts of Anti-Wrinkle Injection (commonly known as Botox) around the upper lip muscles to induce a subtle upward lift, resulting in the appearance of a fuller upper lip without adding volume.

Areas Treated

The treatment targets specific points around the upper lip, particularly focusing on the corners of the mouth and near the cupid’s bow.

Subtle Enhacement

Natural looking boost without adding volume.

Temporary Solution

Love it or forget it. Effects ususally fade away after 2-3 months.

Plumper Look

Enhances the visibility and prominence of the upper lip


Patients usually notice effects within 2 to 3 days, with optimal results visible around 10 days post-treatment. However, the effects are temporary, lasting approximately 2 months.

Difference Between Lip Flip and Lip Fillers

A lip flip alters lip appearance by relaxing muscles, creating a lifted effect, while lip fillers involve injecting dermal fillers to add volume and shape to the lips.

During the Treatment​

The procedure involves precise injections of Botulinum Toxin around the upper lip, taking around 10 to 20 minutes in total.

Potential Side Effects

While generally safe, potential side effects include tenderness, headache, mild redness, swelling, or bruising, which are usually short-term and minor.

Before & Aftercare
Before Treatment
  • Minimise alcohol consumption for a minimum of 24 hours before injectable treatment, as alcohol can thin the blood, increasing the risk of bruising.
  • Avoid certain supplements and medications before the procedure and discuss any history of allergies and current medications with the injector.
  • Inform your provider if you have a history of cold sores or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
After Treatment
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Keep the treated area clean and makeup-free for at least 24 hours.
  • Stay upright for 4 hours following treatment and avoid applying pressure to the area for the first 48 hours.
  • Refrain from high-intensity activities or exercise for over 24 hours and avoid hot environments for 24 hours.
  • Avoid additional skin treatments in the treated area for up to 2 weeks.

This treatment is not suitable for individuals who:

  • Have the flu, a virus, or are generally unwell
  • Are currently undergoing active antibiotic treatment

Individuals with certain medical conditions or allergies to Botulinum Toxin components should avoid the treatment. Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals are also advised against undergoing a lip flip. Consultation and medical questionnaire is required prior to treatment. 

Who Is It For?
