Lip Plumping Side Effect: Is Bruising A Bad Thing? CandyLipz February 28, 2014 Cupping Marks & Bruising Tips By CandyLipz.com It is quite common for first-time users to get hickey marks known as cupping marks on, around the lips, or in side the mouth. Many people may associate cupping marks with bruises. Cupping marks resulting from the sucking kisses of lip pumps are analogous to getting muscle soreness after you had a good workout at the gym for the first-time. If you continue to do your exercise routine daily, the soreness completely goes away. The same goes for lip plumping exercise! Did you know that cupping marks may not be bruises because they can be rubbed off in minutes or within 24 hours? Here is why lip cupping is a good thing. The action of the lip pump suction may gently lift and pull up to 8 layers of the skin. It, therefore, encourages blood flow circulation and detoxification of connective tissues. All in all, it positively promotes rejuvenation, strengthening, and toning of the skin. Important: All users are different. The cupping mark colors may range from light pink to bluish purple and even black in color. This is a common short lasting side effect. Tips: 1. In healthy individuals, the cupping marks should go away within 4- 7 days or less if you allow the body to naturally clear them. If your cupping marks do not go away after two weeks or longer, stop using your lip pump. 2. A good way to reduce or eliminate your cupping marks quicker is to massage or comb them using a comb (best method). Read this link: How to Get Rid Of Cupping Marks (Bruises/Hickeys). 3. If you have the purple or blue lip symptoms that last many days after you plump your lips, you can use the massage method indicated in #2 and drink hot water! 4. If you are breaking out in blisters or cold sores, stop using the lip plumper. You must wait for them to go away before you can plump again. 5. If you have a small blood blister, stop using the lip plumper until the body absorbs it before your plump again. 6. If your skin is very sensitive to being suctioned, do not use CandyLipz at all. 7. If you have poor health, do not use CandyLipz. Period. 8. Some users reported getting intense hickey/cupping marks when they were over excited to see how large they could get their lips on their first attempts. To avoid or to reduce the appearance of cupping marks, use less time per application. For example, you can do 15 to 30 seconds per application instead of 1 minute. All individuals are different, so go slow if you do not want to get cupping marks. If you like this article: please join CandyLipz® Facebook Page by clicking on this link.
