Kissable lips are a big part of a bride-to-be's wedding day checklist when it comes to the beauty department. A wedding kiss not only seals the deal, but it's also the first thing a couple does as official newlyweds—with cameras capturing the moment, no less! And while a swipe of Chapstick and a pretty shade of lipstick is enough to pretty your pout, some brides want more for extra-kissable lips. And luckily for them, anyone can achieve a fuller pout without the need for lip injections or even a visit to the dermatologist's office—thanks to the Beauty Bioscience GloPRO microneedling lip tool.

If you're a microneedling novice, the process (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves rolling tiny needles on your skin to create microtears which trigger collagen production, leading to gorgeous glowy skin. It only sounds semi-torturous, but trust us, it's not, and the results speak for themselves. The Beauty Bioscience GloPRO Lip Edition microneedling regeneration tool ($249, SHOP NOW) contains 240 surgical stainless steel micro-needles with a length of 0.2 millimeters. According to the brand, the tips are made to "gently part skin cells and create microchannels" to achieve those regenerating benefits that result in kissable lips.

So how does it work? It's pretty simple: After you wash your face at night, run the device over your lips and around the lip area with moderate pressure up to 10 times for a minute, changing direction each time. The red LED light on the device is meant to boost collagen production and the hundreds of tiny needles poke microchannels into your lips to achieve plumper, fuller lips after as little as three uses. Similar to traditional microneedling, which improve skin's texture, fine lines, and acne scars, the Beauty Bioscience GloPRO lip roller restores volume to plump and firm lips. Recommended use is two to three times per week and the attachment should be replaced every three months when used regularly. As a bonus, the device comes with a facial roller if you feel inclined to take your microneedling to the next level (and who wouldn't?).
