Ways To Enhance Your Cupid’s Bow CandyLipz July 28, 2015 Lip Plumper Tips The double-arch shape of the upper lip is known as “Cupid’s bow”. It was called the “Cupid’s bow because it resembles a bow carried by Cupid whom the Roman worshiped as their God of erotic love. CUPID’S BOW SENSUAL SPELL The Cupid’s bow speaks volumes- it reveals your sexuality. Did you know scientists discovered that women who have a pouty, curvaceous Cupid’s bow are more orgasmic than their flat-bowed counterparts. Believe it or not, every decade, your Cupid’s bow naturally flattens by 1 mm to as much as 2.6 mm for both genders! When your Cupid’s bow flattens, it may be a sign that you are aging! Take a look at the images of actress Dolores Costello above. See her incredible transformation. The 1920s era was a sexual liberation for women. Sex became less of a taboo. Thus, sexual activity was a part of dating for many men and women. As an expression of sexual freedom of the 1920s, women started to use lip liners to exaggerate the shape of their Cupid’s bow. Trivia: Did you know that orgasms work the muscles of the lips. The physiological responses of orgasms involuntary cause strong contractions of facial muscles resulting in intense workouts for the lips. THE CAUSES OF AGING OF THE CUPID’S BOW As you age, you can expect your philtrum to lengthen and widen horizontally due to gravity and skin laxity from the loss of skin collagen. These are the main causes of Cupid’s bow aging. The loose flaccid skin crushes down on the Cupid’s bow- causing it to flatten and the mouth to widen. It is a myth that you lose lip volume as you age. The lip volume actually remains the same or slightly increases (fat replaces collagen). However, it gets redistributed horizontally to give the appearance of a wider mouth. Let’s take a quick look at a study of Lip Morphology of 386 female aged 3–73 years and see what happened to their lips as they aged. These amazing results are reflections into your own lip’s destiny. FEMALE LIP MORPHOLOGY AGE 3 TO 73 Female Lip Morphology Female Age 3 (mm) Female Age 73 (mm) Differential Changes (mm) Female Age 73 Deviation ± (mm) Comments Philtrum Height 12.8 26.2 +13.8 ±5.2 On average, the female’s philtrum lengthens by nearly 14 mm by the time she reaches the age of 70. On the high end, it could get as long as 19 mm long! Note: The ideal philtrum’s height is the width of the iris of the eye (11 to 12 mm)! Philtrum Horizontal Width 8.6 9.6 +1.0 ±1.6 The average philtrum’s horizontal width can widen by 1 mm and up to 2.6 mm. Cupid’s Bow Height 12 6.1 -5.9 ±2.1 The average height of a female’s Cupid’s bow nearly decrease by 50% at the age of 70.

WAYS TO ENHANCE YOUR CUPID’S BOW LIP FILLERS If you love the young Kim Basinger, Liv Tyler, and model Claudia Schiffer voluptuous pouty lips, you can get The Paris Lip procedure. It is a technique where derma fillers such as Hyaluronic acid is injected only into the upper lip border and the vertical ridges of the philtrum to distinctively accentuate the shape of the Cupid’s bow and pout of the upper lip. This method is approximately $300 which is much cheaper than the full lip filler treatments some people get which can run from $750 to $1500. The downside of the Paris Lip procedure is the lengthening of the philtrum. Fillers have weight. Frequent derma filler injected into the philtral column may elongate the philtrum. A long philtrum is not desirable as it is a sign of aging. The results for this look may last up to 3 months. Repeated visits are necessary to maintain the desired pout. PARIS LIP INJECTION LIP TENTING INJECTION It is a technique where the lip filler is injected vertically into the border of the upper lip instead of horizontally as seen in the Paris Lip technique. CUPID'S BOW SURGICAL PROCEDURE There are a few surgical procedures where you can create the Cupid’s bow look permanently. Incisions can be made inside the upper lip, at the border of the upper lip, or under the base of the nose! Your doctor and you can decide which method is the best for you. Cost: $4000 to $5000.
