San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area
If you have thought about lip enhancement, you may think lip filler and surgery are your only options. Most patients don't know that BOTOX, an injectable typically used for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, can also offer profound lip enhancement benefits. At Be CLINICAL, our San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area lip flip treatment can subtly enhance the size and shape of your lips without any downtime. This is an ideal treatment for those who have a thin upper lip, are not interested in filler, and want subtle volume enhancement. Book a consultation today to learn more about the benefits of a BOTOX lip flip.
What is a Lip Flip?
A lip flip is a treatment that is done with Botox. A small amount of the product is injected into the muscles around the mouth. Botox causes these muscles to relax and the upper part of your lip to roll outwards. This creates an appearance of a fuller lip without adding any additional volume.
The Benefits of a Lip Flip
Because no additional volume is being added to the lips, the results from a Botox lip flip are subtle but noticeable.
This treatment is fast and simple as it requires minimal product. You can immediately return to your normal activities.
Are you curious about lip enhancement but don't want to commit to the longevity of fillers or surgery? Looking for extra volume for an event? Results from a lip flip last less than 6 months.

How does a lip flip enhance my look?
Our San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area lip flip treatments can treat a variety of areas of concern, including…
Thin Upper Lip
Disproportionate lips can cause your lips to look thinner than they are. A lip flip will create a more pronounced upper lip that will make your pout look full and symmetrical.
Fine lines that appear around your lips can cause you to look older than you are. Treatment with Botox around the mouth can smooth wrinkles and restore your youth.
Do you show more gums than teeth when you smile? This common concern can easily be treated with targeted Botox injections around the mouth.
What is the Lip Flip Treatment Experience Like?
Your lip flip treatment at our San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area medical spa clinic will begin with a consultation. We will discuss lip enhancement options with you and tell you how to best care for your results. We will also discuss injectable choices for your treatment. Injectables like Dysport and Xeomin can also be used for the same effect.
The treatment itself is very fast as less than 10 units of Botox are used (Botox on the upper face typically requires 30-70 units). There is no downtime needed after the treatment. However, we recommend that you avoid laying down for at least 4 hours after your injection.
What to Expect Post Treatment?
Botox works gradually and you should begin to see the results from your treatment within 5 to 7 days. Optimal results will be noticeable 2 weeks after your injections, once the Botox has fully settled. Results last anywhere from 3 to 5 months.
How is a Lip Flip Priced?
A lip flip is an affordable alternative to other lip enhancement treatments. We price Botox and similar injectables per unit. As few units are needed for the procedure, the procedure usually costs under $100.
What Are The Most Common Side Effects?
Botox is one of the most common aesthetic procedures in the world and is very safe. When used for a lip flip treatment, very little product is used which results in minimal side effects. If you do notice side effects they should be limited to minor swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. Any side effects should dissipate within a few hours to days after your treatment.
