Cupping marks are not bruises as is commonly thought. They are erythema- superficial of skin reddening.  Some users are able to erase the cupping marks within 24 hours.

Note: CandyLipz lip plumper system does not cause bruising. It has been validated by our Clinical Trial Class 4 that the temporary side effect of cupping marks are actually erythema- superficial skin reddening. It does not cause bruising, broken blood vessels, vascular hemorrhage or broken red blood cells.

You can read the clinical trial here.

TIPS (Many users have reported success using this method.)

MASSAGE the affected area/areas as frequently as you can during the 24-hours period. You can use a clean comb, the tips of your fingers, your thumb’s knuckles, or the round-end of a makeup brush! A small comb is best if you have one on hand.

Cupping Mark Eraser Comb


The trick is to apply a slight pressure  on the mark and massage it using a back and forth motion as if you were erasing the mark like you erase a letter on a page using a pencil eraser! Here is a video of Dr. Thienna using her massage method. In this video, she cupped her arm. The result of this video shows you how a cupping mark can dissipate quickly using the MASSAGE method. For her, it was only 24 hours.*
* Individual results may vary.


  1. Massage or comb your marks for 2 minutes and rest for 2 minutes during your 15-minute session. Repeat your 15-minute session after  2 to 3 hours if you need more time to erase your marks. You will see the cupping marks brighten up in minutes to a few hours regardless of how dark your marks are.
  2. Apply an Arnica cream or cabbage juice before you massage/comb your cupping marks to promote blood circulation and to break up debris. You can even take an organic sulfur/MSM supplement before and during your conditioning period to clear the marks quicker.
  3. Drink more water to facilitate clearance of your cupping marks. Add fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your drinks and foods during you conditioning period.
  4. Eat iron and sulfur rich foods.
  5. If your tissues are slightly sore, give them a rest.
  6. Remember to keep your comb sanitized and hands clean before you massage away your cupping marks.

BLUE OR PURPLE LIPS? Users have reported drink hot water combined with massage help remove the blue and purple lips side effect.

Some users reported getting intense 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. Oh! One last thing, remember to put on your soft jelly mouth cushion before each application. Have fun CandyLipping.
