This treatment became popular in the later years of the 20-teens. Pioneering practitioners noted that in some clients, the lips turn inwards upon themselves as part of the ageing process. Applying small doses of botulinum toxin above the top lip allows the lips of such clients, to turn outwards again, allowing their lips to be visible again. This treatment can be used as a standalone treatment or can be combined with other enhancements such as dermal filler.
All our treatments are performed by Dr. Michael Aicken. Dr. Aicken is a GMC registered Doctor and GP, he has 14 years of experience in advanced medical aesthetics. He has been teaching his own techniques to thousands of trainees from around the world for the past 12 years.
Will the lip flip treatment hurt?
The needle we use is 32G, which means that it is the thickness of human hair. In addition, we also use anaesthetic cream for all injections, which further optimises the experience for our clients. Additionally, as Dr Aicken has vast experience in injecting Botulinum Toxin and so his injection technique will also limit discomfort.
