We all want to have a lush, beautiful, natural-looking pout, but sometimes not even the latest tips and tricks from your favorite beauty bloggers can give you the results you want. For the past few years, lip fillers have been the go-to treatment to pump up the volume in thinning lips, yet the trouble with these lip augmentation treatments is that they can have results that look unnatural. So, what can you do? At Beautique Medical in Knoxville, TN we know that the key to natural-looking plushness is using innovative solutions such as the Nurse Shara Lip Flip.
Introducing the Nurse Shara Lip Flip
The Nurse Shara Lip Flip is a patented technique that combines the power of neurotoxins with the precision of choice injections to revamp the appearance of the lips. Unlike other lip flips, the Nurse Shara technique allows for both the top and bottom lips to be flipped to create a kissable pout that does not require the use of filler. That’s right: the original Nurse Shara Lip Flip is a stand-alone treatment for the top or bottom lip that doesn’t call for additional lip fillers.
How It Works
A lip flip is any type of treatment for the lip that creates an illusion of volume by relaxing the muscles around the lips. Lip flips are relatively new in cosmetic treatments but are rapidly gaining popularity as being a cost-effective and natural-looking solution for thinning lips.
The basic technique involved in a lip flip is one or more injections of a neurotoxin into the muscles around the mouth; particularly the cupid’s bow for the upper lip. Once the neurotoxin kicks in, the muscles around the mouth relax and the lip can naturally “flip” upward to look fuller.
The Secret Benefit of Botox
You might be familiar with the versatility of Botox. As a product with decades of trust, Botox has been an effective solution for wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
Recent years have seen Botox being used in more innovative ways, such as for the treatment of migraines and for relaxing nasolabial lines around the nose and mouth. The versatility of Botox comes from the way the neurotoxin works to cancel out the nerves that are causing tightness on the face, or in the case of this treatment, tightness of the lips.
Other Nurse Shara Techniques
While the original Nurse Shara technique is a stand-alone lip flip that only uses Botox, you should know that there are two other patented techniques developed by Nurse Shara. These additional techniques are ideal for patients who are looking for a more comprehensive fullness of the mouth, or for patients who require extra help in augmenting the plushness of their pout. These additional techniques include:
Lip Flip With Key Hole Pout
This treatment combines the original Botox lip flip with the silky hyaluronic acid fillers in the Juvederm line. The technique focuses both injectables around the cupid’s bow to relax the mouth and elevate the volume in the lip to create a centralized pout in the middle of the lips with a small space or a “keyhole”.
Mini Pout Lip Flip
This technique also combines Botox and plumping hydration from Juvederm fillers. The Mini Pout subtly augments lips into a small, natural-looking pout using the smallest amount of lip filler possible.
How Results Work
Whether you are using the original lip flip technique or one of the additional techniques, your results will always come the same way. The majority of patients notice an immediate relaxation of their lips within 1 to 3 days following treatment: an effect that grows more pronounced within one week of treatment. For patients who use the Mini Pout or Keyhole Pout techniques, the effects of the Juvederm filler may take 7 to 10 days to begin showing noticeable results.
How Long It Lasts
A lip flip is a treatment that lasts for a moderate length of time, which is good news for patients who aren’t sure if they want to commit to permanent lip augmentation treatments. On average, a lip flip will last for about 6 to 8 weeks at a time for the majority of patients. Some patients can enjoy results for over 2 months.
The Best Way to Maintain Results
If you love your results, then you’ll surely want to maintain those results. The best way to do this is by taking care of your lips, which means keeping them hydrated with the right lip products and drinking an adequate amount of water every day. The other way you can maintain your results is to attend regularly scheduled maintenance appointments. We generally recommend that patients schedule an appointment once every 2 months to continue enjoying results seamlessly.
Who Are Qualified Candidates?
The great news about a lip flip is that the vast majority of patients are qualified for treatment. One of the key qualifying factors for this treatment is passing a standard allergy screening for the injectables, which is sometimes performed at your initial consultation. Ideal candidates for this treatment include those who want:
- Natural-looking results
- More lip volume
- Reduced fine lines around the mouth
- Kissable pout
- Hassle-free treatment
