Get Your “Pout” On!

Get Your “Pout” On!
September 23, 2016 Erin Owens


Full lips with an accentuated border have been associated with beauty and youth for many centuries and throughout the world. It has been suggested that this is because the lips occupy both sides of the face and, with the smile, constitute a major focal point of overall facial beauty. Hence, our cultural quest for full lips, a great pout and highlighting our youthful sensuality.


In early 1900, surgeons tried injecting paraffin into the lips without success in the attempt to create a more luscious-kissable lip.   Starting in the early 60’s liquid silicone was used for lip augmentation, but was abandoned thirty years later due to unfounded fears about the effects of silicone on general health.  Then around 1980, injectable bovine collagen was introduced to the cosmetic surgery market and became the standard against which other injectable fillers were measured.

Today, lip fillers containing hyaluronic acids like Restylane and Juvederm have captured the attention of consumers and physicians in Europe, North America, South America and Australia. These injectable wrinkle fillers have skyrocketed 243 percent between 2000 and 2013 and 13 percent between just 2012 and 2013, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Cosmetic companies also got into the “Pouty lips” game with the invention of lip plumpers. This temporary fix for fuller lips is the result of a product called capsicum which is the active ingredient in peppers.  When applied to the lips, the blood vessels dilate and cause the lips to swell.  So adding a little shiny gloss that has a pinch of capsicum to your lipstick gives you that sultry pouting look at least for a little while.

What if you don’t want to do injectables but still want fuller lips that last longer than plumped lips?  No need to pout.
