2023's Biggest Lip Trend: Cherry Lips

Here’s everything you need to know about the cherry lips trend and how you can achieve them

The cherry lips trend originated in South Korea but has become a rage all over the world now. You must have seen many celebrities and influencers on social media platforms sporting cherry lips. But what are cherry lips, and how can you achieve them?

What is the cherry lips trend?

This trend, popularized by K-pop stars, uses a cherry-like aesthetic for volume and dimension that look more natural. ​​This procedure only fills the middle portion of your lips, as opposed to more traditional filler techniques that concentrate on creating an all-over plumping effect.

Are you wondering how it got its name? Although the outside corners of the lips are not volumized, you can still see the two plump sections on top and bottom, which is why they are known as cherry lips. Because it gives you a natural-looking, fuller pout and a more youthful appearance, this technique has become immensely popular.

How can you achieve cherry lips?

If you are planning on joining the cherry lips wagon, here are some excellent treatment options that you can try:

Lip fillers

If you want natural-looking cherry lips, lip fillers are an excellent option. Cherry lips give the Cupid's bow region more definition and mirror the curve of the lower lip. In this procedure, the corners and edges of the lips are not injected with lip filler; just the center of the lips are. Lip fillers can instantly add volume to your lips, but the results are not permanent. The effects of lip fillers typically last around six to 12 months. You might experience a few mild side effects after the procedure, like:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Tenderness
  • Discoloration

Swelling and bruising subside on their own. You just have to ice the injection site and wait it out for a few days.

Choose a lip filler with a thinner consistency, like Juvéderm Volbella, for results that look more natural. However, you might consider Juvéderm and Restylane Silk for a more noticeable pout.

Fotona LipLase

Do you want cherry lips but are scared of injectables? Fotona LipLase is an excellent option for you. Even though the results look similar to lip filler results, this non-invasive, non-surgical treatment does not involve needles. The results are very natural because nothing artificial is injected into your lips. Patients develop collagen in their lips. This lip treatment enables your lips to produce more collagen, giving you fuller, plumper lips without having to use lip fillers.

To prevent heat accumulation, optical radiation is given in a single sub-second-long pulse sequence during the procedure. As a result, the surface tissue prompts the production of new collagen within six to seven pulses, boosting the smoothness and elasticity of the lips. For deeper collagen stimulation, this lip therapy can also be administered intra-orally on the mucosal lining of the lips. The deeper underlying skin tissues that are targeted during this painless process help create collagen from the inside. And the best part? The treatment does not involve any downtime or bruising. Unlike painful lip filler treatments, this procedure can help you get cherry lips with minimal discomfort.
