How these products work.

Some irritate the thin, delicate skin of the lips with ingredients like menthol, camphor, Restylane or Juvederm.

Many lip plumpers also contain soothing ingredients to dull the slight dis comfort or stinging that may result from applying the irritants. Thus, the lips will swell, but the stinging feeling will not occur, or will be lessened.

Some stimulate collagen production (up to 339%).

Others use hydrophilic ingredients that draw the bodys natural water into the lips, making the lip swell. Hydrophilic ingredients like dehydrated marine collagen-filling spheres penetrate the skins surface. Once inside the skin they fill with moisture and swell, thus plumping the skin of the lips as well.
