Your lips can change the appearance and shape of your entire face. If you desire plump and luscious lips for the shape and appearance of your face and you were born without plump and luscious lips there are treatments to help you achieve the look you desire.


Active Ingredients

There are thousands of products out there that promise to plump your lips, but what are the ingredients that you should look for in these products?

  1. Atelocollagen – This is an animal protein that is an effective moisturizers that also stimulates natural collagen production that will dramatically enhance lip skin appearance.
  2. Marine filling spheres – These are dehydrated microspheres of glycosaminoglycans and marine collagen that rehydrate and regain their volume in water. They enhance lip skin appearance by penetrating the skin and then swelling when coming into contact with water.
  3. Hyaluronic acid – This works by attracting and holding moisture in the skin and also boosts collagen production causing your lips to plump over time.
  4. Natural skin irritants – Cinnamon oil, menthol, cayenne pepper, and peppermint oil all causes a mild irritation and swelling of the lips to be plumper.


Hyaluron Pens

Hyaluron pens are an injection method that uses pressure to push hyaluronic acid into the dermal layers of the skin. These pens can be found over-the-counter or be used by a dermatological professional. They have become a popular choice for achieving plumper lips because they are cheaper, do not use a needle, allow for subtle changes, and are easy to learn to use. There is now a warning against using these pens at home because the hyaluronic acid can be pushed through the skin into the body, some pens are made with non-medical grade hyaluronic acid, and bleeding, bruising, swelling, scarring, infection, blockage of blood vessels, and damage to the eyes may result from use of the hyaluron pens.


In-Office Treatments

To achieve your plump lips it is best to discuss your goals with your dermatologist to map out a journey to success. Here are some of the options that may be presented to you that are done in-office.

  1. Lip filler – A lip augmentation that uses collagen, silicone, or hyaluronic acid to be injected into your lips. A numbing cream will be applied and then your dermatological professional will skillfully place the filler material in the lips.
  2. Lip implants – A permanent enhancement of the lips when a substance is implanted into the lips. The substance may be a plastic silicone, fat from the abdomen, or tissue grafting.
  3. Lip thread – One of the newer methods that involves a small dissolvable thread that contours and adds definition to the lip line.
  4. Lip lift – An incision is made under the nose and the excess skin is removed so the space between the nose and mouth is shortened improving the shape of the lips.
