Still, you might want a little extra help to achieve the look you’re after. That’s where Botox in Fairhope comes in. This remarkable substance has the power to turn back the clock and subtly improve the appearance of your facial features. If you would like to give Botox a try, now is the perfect time because Dr. Knight is offering a FREE lip flip. But what exactly is a lip flip, and how can it upgrade your smile?

The Illusion of Fuller Lips

Full lips are all the rage these days. You can buy lipsticks and lip glosses that claim to temporarily plump up your pout, or you use various makeup techniques to create the impression that your lips are bigger than they really are. Dermal fillers are also a popular way to achieve a perfect pout; they literally make the lips larger through the use of hyaluronic acid and other substances.

Botox takes a different approach to reshaping the lips. With a precisely placed injection of Botox into the orbicularis oris (the muscle that controls lip function), you can achieve the illusion of fuller lips. The Botox very gently and slightly rolls the lip outward, creating a subtle but noticeable change in the way the lips look. When done correctly by a qualified professional, this simple procedure does not compromise a patient’s ability to freely move their lips.

What to Expect From Your Lip Flip

If you choose to receive a lip flip, your Botox provider will inject 10 units (or less) of the botulinum toxin into your muscle. That’s a very small amount when compared to how much dermal filler would be necessary to achieve the same result. The entire procedure takes less than a minute!

It usually takes a couple of weeks to see the true results of a Botox injection. However, lip flips tend to work faster. You may even see your newly shaped pout right away. Exactly how long your lip flip lasts is difficult to predict. For some patients, their lips maintain their new fullness for six to eight weeks. For others, the results if the treatment last up to four months.

See What Botox Can Do for You

Botox can work wonders, but only if you receive it from someone who truly knows what they’re doing. A cosmetic dentist in Fairhope is uniquely qualified to provide the injections because they have an intimate understand of how the orofacial structures work, which minimizes the risk that you’ll suffer adverse effects from your procedure.

A lip flip could give you the plump pout you’ve always wanted. Why not visit Dr. Knight to give this fast and effective procedure a try?
