INNOVATIONs IN THE New
DERMAX LIP PLUMPER
If your lip plumper tingles or burns when applied, it is probably using spicy extracts like cinnamon, menthol, and even hot pepper (commonly labeled as capsaicin). The ingredients intentionally irritate the lips, make them swell, and give an appearance of plumping. That may sound a bit harsh for a beauty product but the irritation is generally mild and safe.
Other popular lip plumpers use a blend of ingredients to achieve a vasodilation effect. They increase blood circulation in lips to make them look fuller. Caffeine and niacin, a form of vitamin B, are popular vasodilator ingredients.
The problem with lip plumpers, which rely on spicy irritants and vasodilating ingredients is that their effects would barely last for an hour, some for just a few minutes.
Here comes the new DERMAX Pink n Pout that promises long-term benefits beyond the transient appearance of fullness. It combines two multi-awarded and patent-pending innovations that add volume and improve the contour of the lips with lasting results.
The first innovative ingredient received two awards this year. It is a unique active that is clinically proven to literally “fatten” the lips in just one month. It increases the number and volume of fat cells around the lips to achieve long lasting, fuller curves. As an antioxidant, it also helps in overall anti-aging protection.
The second is a patent-pending blend of nano-encapsulated, time released plumping actives that improves collagen and moisture level of the lips. The tiny spheres deliver peptides directly into the lips, working on the cellular level to regenerate lip tissue. The results are immediate and sustained for extended periods of time.
DERMAX Pink n Pout has a hint of pink that will blend well with any lipstick color. It comes in a 15-ml airless packaging, with a novel injection-design packaging. Do not be intimidated. Although it may appear like a dermal filler injection for the lips, this will produce similar results without the pain. DERMAX Pink n Pout is the topical alternative that can create youthful, smoother, beautiful fuller lips.
