Welcome to the best cosmetic advice of your life. Brianna LaTorre, aka the Lip Bunny, co-owns and serves as lead injector at The Lip Bunny Beauty Med Spa in Massachusetts. She has trained with some of the best in the business and is now a multi-award-winning injector. Though the business was founded in just 2018, it is already a Top 250 account for Allergan Pharmaceuticals, and LaTorre herself has been named in the Top 100 Injectors in America three times. We caught up with Brianna LaTorre for her to share her expert advice about neurotoxins and whether they are your best option.
“Neurotoxins are injected just beneath the surface of the skin to inhibit muscle contraction. Essentially freezing the muscles pause development and helps prevent the intensity of lines and wrinkles as we age.” According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 4.4 million neurotoxin procedures in 2020. Neurotoxins and fillers remain wildly popular with the general public because they are affordable, sustainable, and a safe, non-invasive procedure to accentuate your natural beauty. “Neurotoxins are commonly used where there are a lot of expressions. It’s for eleven lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.”
Unlike fillers, designed to address volume loss in the lips, jaw, chin, and cheeks, neurotoxins counteract problem areas where muscle movements create lines and wrinkles. “They’re great for smoothing and diminishing lines but also an excellent preventative rejuvenation.” If you commonly furrow your brows, laugh endlessly, or crinkle your forehead, preventative neurotoxins can freeze your muscles to allow them time to relax. This diminishes existing lines and wrinkles and can prevent further development. “If you start a preventative treatment, it can reduce the need for neurotoxin, in both frequency and amount.” Are neurotoxins the best option for you? They are most commonly used by 40-54-year-olds, but they are still prevalent in the age groups directly below and above. As long as you are over the age of 18, it is a safe option. The key is to find a reputable injector.
“There’s a stigma about neurotoxin injections creating a fake look. We don’t over-fill. We want to create as natural of a look as possible.” If you’re under 30, you might want to take a preventative rejuvenation path, which Cindy Crawford has done since age 29. If you’re over 30, you may have deeper lines and wrinkles that bother you. Neurotoxins are beneficial to freeze muscle movement to reduce the impact temporarily. Neurotoxins are an excellent solution if you have crow’s feet, nose wrinkles, forehead lines, or skin creases around your mouth and chin.
Lip fillers are the go-to in the industry when you want a fuller look, but neurotoxins can plump your lips just as effectively. This is something to discuss with a certified professional you trust to carry out a procedure. Lip flips rely on Botox. This is the most effective way to create pouty lips. Rather than inject with filler, your injector will use neurotoxin. Botox is injected around the lip edges and at the corners of the mouth to create a subtle lip flip effect. It creates a pouty appearance, ideal for gummy smiles and thinner lips. It creates the appearance of fuller lips without adding volume. It’s a much more natural result than when opting for dermal fillers. A lip flip is a great choice for anyone who wants fuller-looking lips without having a lip augmentation or filler procedure. It’s also an excellent option if you are self-conscious about how much gum shows when you smile or want to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles.
There’s no need for recovery time from neurotoxin injections because it’s a non-invasive procedure. However, your injector should give you aftercare advice. You should also speak to your injector about which neurotoxin is right for the look you are trying to achieve. Neurotoxin injections might be the right solution for you if you suffer from a medical condition, such as chronic migraines, excessive sweating, or muscle stiffness or spasms.
The Lip Bunny Beauty Med Spa offers a range of services, from lip fillers to cheek, jaw, chin, and under-eye fillers. The team also provides chemical peels, neurotoxin injections, and facials. LaTorre has also opened up about her plans to expand. “Long-term, we plan to open additional locations throughout the United States. Short-term, we are adding new services, including teeth whitening, lip blushing and tinting, and anal and vaginal bleaching.” While it might seem like a rapid expansion, The Lip Bunny has over 15,000 clients, many of whom travel from all over the US for the pleasure of her services. “We aim for optimal results over some time to build trust and lifelong relationships with our clients. They’re coming to professionals who want the best for them.”
