Naturally full lips are one of those trends that may constantly be “in,” but not every woman is willing to undergo injections to get a plumped-up look. While injectable hyaluronic acid fillers are by far the best solution for a long-lasting plump pout, there are plenty of devices out there that claim to create the look of bigger lips sans any needles.
Using a contoured mouthpiece that fits around your mouth, JuvaLips ($139) is the newest plumping tool to hit the market. Unlike fillers, which deposit product deep within the lips to create volume, JuvaLips works via suction to increase the size of your lips. Keep in mind that devices like JuvaLips don’t provide long-term results and will probably last four to 10 hours at most. However, the company says that the more you use the device, the more your lips become accustomed to the treatments and the longer the results last.

In one to two minutes (that’s all it takes to do a treatment), the effects of the tool start working and you should see some sort of a plumping effect, be it minimal or a little more. When we tried it out we noticed a very slight, short-lived increase in our pout. But it wasn’t anything that dramatic that made us stop and say, “Wow!” or vow to swear off fillers.
While we can’t say for sure if this will make injections a thing of the past—our hunch is probably not—it’s nice to know that there is an alternative out there for those who are looking for a way to plump up their lips without resorting to a needle.
