Thank you so much for visiting my official CandyLipz website and to learn more about me. I am Thienna Ho, the inventor of CandyLipz lip plumpers and we are the exclusive seller online for the USA market. I am so happy you came by. Let me tell you my story why I invented CandyLipz. Thank you so much. XOXOXO
I was born with full lips. But shortly after I turned 35, my lips began to lose their youthful appearance. Gravity had forced my lips to lengthen and flatten. My upper lip looked too long and the arches that outlined my upper lip--my Cupid’s Bow--sagged and so did the corners of my mouth! I also showed less of my top teeth and more of my lower teeth when I talked.
I was frustrated and unhappy.
I was reminded of my aging lips on a daily basis. Every time I looked into a mirror, there they were. At first, I tried to correct my lip problems by using “tricks of the trade” to mask them. I used lip liners, lip glosses, and lipsticks to give me back that pouty lips look.
But I was unsatisfied with the illusion I had created. It looked as though I were trying much too hard. My four-year old niece tried to emulate me by using lip liner to draw a huge line on her upper lip and pointed proudly to her face. She shouted to everyone in the room, "This is Aunty Thienna!" I felt I had become a clown!
In 2004, out of desperation I visited a plastic surgeon in Houston, Texas for a thread lip lift. It’s a noninvasive procedure in which fine threads are placed to gently pull from one nostril to the other and down to the arches of the upper lip to achieve the lip lift. After 45 minutes of in-take consultation, I left the office as fast as I could. I had seen the results of the thread lip lift. The doctor’s nurse had had the procedure done by the doctor himself. Her nostrils and the arches of her upper lip were asymmetrical! They looked stiff and unnatural. I was SAVED just in time! I would not be spending $5K to ruin my face.
In 2006, the thin lip blues hit me again. I went to visit a plastic surgeon in San Francisco, where I live. He suggested a procedure called lip lift advancement. In it, a strip of skin is removed directly above the white roll--the border between the upper lip and the skin--to shorten the upper lip and restore the arches of the Cupid’s Bow. He said the risks of this procedure included scarring on the upper lip, asymmetry arches of the Cupid's bow, and the possibility of permanent stiffness of the upper lip. I dropped the idea immediately.
In 2007, I tried temporary lip injections. The first time I had saline injected into my lips. I am a very cautious person. So to see what I might look like if I used the injection process, I decided to try saline injection first. If I didn’t like the results, at least I wouldn’t have to live with them for three to six months. The results? I looked like I had sausage lips! The procedure had been painful even with anesthetic injections. The saline test injection absorbed quickly and my look lasted just 4 to 5 hours. I paid nearly $100 for this experimentation.
But the sausage lips experience wasn’t quite enough to cure my curiosity about lip injections. I had my lips injected twice in 2007- anything to reverse the aging of my lips! Each time I had one and one-half syringes of Perlane Hyaluronic Acid injected into my lips at a cost of $800. The worst part of my lip injection experience was that my lips did not last the three months I had expected; they only lasted for about four weeks on me.
This was turning out to be an expensive lesson with very unsatisfying results. It wasn’t worth the pain or the lumps I was developing in my lips. Not to mention the cost. I was through with injections!
But I still had the problem of my aging lips. To solve it, I created a revolutionary breakthrough Xtreme Lip-Shaper system in 2010- no doctor or plastic surgeon can match. I call it CandyLipz. Now you get to enjoy my invention. Thank You for Your Support.
(Note: I was born with a long philtrum and a drooping Cupid's bow. Today, at the age of 48, I am so happy with my youthful pouty lips. The technical design of the lip pump is designed to work on the lips but also the upper area of the lips as well. All these components are necessary to create the appearance of pouty lips observed in teens. If you worry about a few days of hickey marks on the upper lip area, you should not. You have to give to have the pouty lips you always wanted. Naturally.)
