Check this out:

:. angelLift - Face Lift .:

It looks something like a retainer and is reported to "retrain" the muscles of the mouth area. The before/after pictures show a modest improvement on older women. I checked websites and it looks like the cost is somewhere in the nature of $350 for the device. It is fitted by taking dental impressions, like a NightGuard (for bruxism). Certification of the dentist is needed for fitting, so not every dentist can do it. There is also an over the counter version available at Drugstore.com and places like that, but it doesn't appear to be as esthetically nice.

I'm looking for it myself! After wearing braces, my teeth slant inward and make my mouth look flat. This might help. Stay tuned!

Interesting. It looks like the dental version of the Frownie, which is that topical patch that trains the muscle not to revert to the "frowning" position. I bet that you'd find that device at those skin care fairs that you're fixing to go to this spring.

For years I've always had problems with chapped lips in the winter and dry lips in the summer. When I was in the US a couple of year's ago I picked up some Vit c lip balm. Can't believe the results -- only problem I can't get or find the stuff here in Canada. May be able to order on line. I've had people ask what I use on my lips as usually when I'm slopping around my garden in the summer I don't wear makeup -- face may look like hell but my lips look good. I'm not a fan of lip plumping except for people who have ended up with two narrow lines for lips. But I heard if you line your lips with a pale shade, use a fairly light lipstick then use the same colour or light lip gloss on top it makes your lips look nice and full.

Here's where Fawnies special cat spit serum would help you out. It is guaranteed to give plump lips au naturale.

Well, but this device is for giving lift to the entire lower face it appears. Not just a lip plumper. I looked at some of the before/after pics and it does give lift around the mouth and jowl area.
I'm going to talk to my dentist and see if he can make me something like this, or revise my Nightguard so it works like this!

I bought and used the Angellift Dermastrips ( not the Angellift my dentist wanted to sell me) and saw a decrease in my wrinkles, but also saw an increase in my lip size! I called the number on the box and they said it was a side affect. Since the side affect was a good one, they are introducing a new product next year just for increasing lip size! its called LIPS or Angellift Lips or something like that. I just hope its not like that stupid suction thing i saw on TV ..... thats disgusting!

$350, wow, I was quoted $2500! I bought the over the counter version for $69. It has worked well for me. But it goes in your mouth, not on your face like those frownie things. I could never get them to stay on my face, unlike my cleavage wrinkle stickers...as my husband calls them.

I have been using these for about six weeks (the $60 or thereabouts version). I am using them to try to push out the NL trenches that I have which an orthodontist and cosmetic surgeon say are due to having a "child size upper palate." I have some JuvÃa9derm in the trenches but, as you can see in my avatar, they are still quite pronounced.

I am only using the upper strip. For the first few days of "inserting it for 15 minutes" it kept slipping out. After that, I figured out that a small twitch of the labial ledge area would reposition it. At this point, I started putting it in when I went to bed and taking it out in the morning. I really couldn't feel it when it was in place.

So has it done anything? Not really at this point but keep in mind I am not using it with the intent of getting rid of perioral wrinkles. I do see that the whole labial ledge/upper lip area is fuller in the mornings though, and subsides somewhat during the day. I have to say I really enjoy using it as it "feels" like it is doing something and, over time, I am sure it will.

It is important to keep the strips in the little box that they come in, to keep them straight. The idea is that, once curved around the gums, they will attempt to regain their original shape, in doing so pushing out the labial ledge. Also, there is a subtle difference in the upper and lower side of the strip, so be careful you don't put them in upside down.

LOL! At first I thought this was a thread about/for Angel Hair!

Fawnie, if your dentist doesn't do it, you may have to call the company and find a dentist outside of Cowflop. Please keep us posted, I would love to know about this. The pictures are almost too good to be true!

I'm having soooo much dental work done! One thing I am getting is an actual dentist -fitted nightguard. I notice when I get up, with my clunky store bought nightguard, that the little lines above my upper lip are lighter. Then the effect wears off, lol!!!!

Ok, I bought one just now. I got it at drugstore.com, and found a discount code for an extra $5 off. Total: $45, with free 1st purchase shipping.

My skin is veeery sensitive on the surface. I have some lining around my mouth, but overall, I think I make it seem worse than it is. Still, if I can do something that doesn't require topicals, I'm going to try it!

Thank you for this thread!


oh, and ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~> Angel Hair (good vibes your way)

I talked to my dentist and he said he never heard about it. I went to Angellift website and registered for them to find a dentist, but got only an automated email and nothing after that. Did you try to fill out info on their website and got a dentist recommendation. Its says you might qualify for a rebate if they have to certify a dentist just for you. Please let us know if you get any more info. Thanks.
