The Secret to Plumper Lips Without Fillers
Do you wish your thin lips were fuller but you don’t enjoy the idea of pumping them with fillers? You can enjoy plumper lips without fillers. Discover these five options for a fuller lip, and choose the right approach for you with expert guidance.

If you’re searching for a full, luscious pout without lip fillers, you’re in luck. There are several noninvasive methods you can use for plumper lips, including using lip plumpers and stimulating your collagen production.

Although 3 million people a year opt for fillers, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy a fuller lip without them. 

At Brilliant Beauty in San Pedro, California, we specialize in helping you feel good inside and out. From skin rejuvenation treatments to laser therapy, we offer multiple approaches to help you feel your best. 

Natural approaches to plumper lips 

You can skip the lip fillers and start with good lip care treatments. For example, exfoliation, hydration, and even makeup can enhance your lips. For something longer-lasting, we offer laser therapy. 


How often do you exfoliate your lips? If you can’t remember, it’s a good time to do so. You can buy a commercial lip scrub or create one at home. Mix your home exfoliation treatment by combining a little sugar and olive oil together and then apply it to your lips in a small circle. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and helps your lips look healthier and more appealing. Finish by wiping off the scrub and topping with a hydrating lip balm.

Lipstick and lip liner 

Makeup artists have a wealth of tricks to make lips look plumper. One popular technique is to draw lip liner slightly around the outside edges of your lips to make them look fuller.  Pay special attention to your cupid’s bow and the center bottom of your lip, as that’ll create an illusion of a fuller pout. Finally, fill in with matching lip color. 

Lip plumping products 

Many lip plumpers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance your body produces to keep your skin hydrated and supple. As you age, your body produces less of this essential substance, and you’ll find it in many moisturizing products to compensate.

Some lip plumpers also have peptides that stimulate your body’s collagen production. Both peptides and hyaluronic acid smooth small wrinkles. You might even find lip plumpers containing “stinging”  ingredients like cayenne pepper. Such ingredients create redness and a slight plumping effect because they’re irritants. Of course, the effect only lasts a few hours at most.

Stay hydrated

When you’re well-hydrated, it shows in clearer, brighter skin. When your lips are well-hydrated, they’ll stay smooth and better hold onto lip liners and look healthier, which is the basis of every beautiful mouth. 

We offer IV hydration for brighter skin and an energetic boost. 

Laser therapy

For a longer-lasting pout, laser therapy like LipLase™ uses targeted lasers to stimulate your body’s collagen to plump your lips without fillers. Collagen is a natural protein in your skin that helps your skin maintain its youthful elasticity. As you age, your body produces less collagen, making your lips look thinner.
