About AngelLift

If you’re a big fan of Shark Tank, you may have seen Aaron Bruce pitching AngelLift on the May 2, 2014 episode. These prosthetic strips are claimed to feature a sub dermal technology that adds volume to facial lines and lips lost as a result of aging, and to thereby reduce the signs of wrinkles.

But can AngelLift really help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and make your lips look fuller? Let’s fill in the gaps and find out.

How AngelLift Works

AngelLift’s motto is “correction without injection,” which means that unlike injections, the product is claimed to add volume under the skin, instead of in the skin. The company claims that their hypoallergenic, flexible, reversible, and reusable strips replace pressure lost through the natural recession of teeth and gums, thereby reducing aging lines around the mouth and lifting and reshaping your lips. In fact, AngelLift strips are claimed to be safer than surgery, to last longer than injections, and to be more effective than serums.

AngelLift claims that their “technological breakthrough” was discovered through nerve damage research, and to have “displayed measurable results” through third-party clinical research, which is something we’ll explore in greater detail in the Bottom Line section. The company claims that after 30 days of regular use, your results will be permanent.

According to the AngelLift website, their Dermastrips can be used over three steps:

  1. Apply a Dermastrip to your upper or lower lip.
  2. Keep your mouth closed for 30 minutes, while refraining from talking, eating, drinking, or sleeping.
  3. After 30 days or achieving your desired look, reduce Dermastrip application to once per week.

In addition to the standard version, AngelLift also comes in a Fusione version, which includes the addition of collagen, Vitamin E, zinc, and a vitamin complex (no additional details as to what the Vitamin complex consists of). AngelLift also offers a BriteLift™ model, which is a teeth whitening system that they is claim is the most effective on the market.

AngelLift Pricing & Refund Policy

AngelLift Dermastrips are available in three different versions, which are priced as follows:

There are no refund details provided on the AngelLift website, so you may want to contact customer service at 800-591-9386 prior to placing your order.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About AngelLift?

AngelLift appears to be operated by Medical Matrix, LLC, although neither the company nor the LLC are listed with the Better Business Bureau. We were also unable to uncover any additional information about Medical Matrix during our research.

Based on a press release we found, it appears that AngelLift has been available to medical professionals since 2004, although only available to the public over the past couple years. Online customer reviews appear to be mixed, with the most common complaints citing failure to work, difficulty keeping the strips in place, and high price for what you get (e.g. low value level).

What’s the Bottom Line About AngelLift?

With all this in mind, can AngelLift really reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while also making your lips look fuller? Perhaps, but we have our doubts. Here’s why:

First, the benefits of AngelLift are claimed to have been discovered through nerve damage research, and also that their Dermastrips have been clinically tested by a third party. In addition, the company claims that their product has been tested and approved by Wrinklepedia Cosmetic Laboratories. However, AngelLift provides no reference to these clinical studies, and we were unable to find any reference to the product on the Wrinklepedia website. This is somewhat confusing, as Aaron Bruce claimed that he could “easily” provide clinical proof to Shark Lori Greiner after she agreed to invest $550K for a 15% stake in the company. So why not boost the product’s credibility by also including this proof on the AngelLift website?

As such, during the Shark Tank episode, all Sharks (even Lori Greiner) agreed that Aaron Bruce’s pitch just didn’t make sense, especially given the fact that he claimed AngelLift had already generate $3 million in revenue. In fact, Mark Cuban even told Aaron that, “I don’t believe you’re here for the right reasons.”

Also, before AngelLift was pulled from Amazon, customer reviews appeared to be mixed, and cited failure to work, difficulty keeping the strips in place, and high price for what you get (e.g. low value level) as the most common complaints. In fact, several customers even accused the company of posting fake positive reviews in order to boost sales. Also, keep in mind that it’s highly unrealistic that Dermastrips provide the same level of wrinkle reduction as Botox.

Bottom line: If you’re considering purchasing AngelLift, keep in mind that the company doesn’t appear to be very forthcoming with clinical evidence showing its efficacy, and that even in Aaron Bruce’s Shark Tank appearance, it was widely agreed that he wasn’t being completely upfront. This raises some big concerns about how effective AngelLift really is (or isn’t).

    Worked, with reservations

    This is actually different than I thought, but ok in the end.

    My best friend bought some of these a long time ago from the Shark Tank show. She actually never used them, because she cannot kick her smoking habit. She was kind enough to offer them to me.

    I had some teeth removed when I was younger for braces, and I think that is what is causing these terrible 'smoker lines'. I began using these everyday in hopes of a miracle. At first, they slipped around a bit so I called the company. I learned this was normal. After a few more days, they stayed in place and were easy to wear. Within a month, I could see a difference.

    The Good: They do work. I am still using them and now clearly understand how they work.

    The Bad: A cream would be a lot easier and more convenient. However, I have yet to find one that actually lifts like these Angellift strips do. Also, these wear out. I am on my second pair. The pair lasted about 3 months.

    I am going to give this a 4 star because it really does work.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Very disappointed.

    I used these cheap plastic products for over 3 months and saw zero results. Will be going for a dermal filler, at least I know that works and lasts almost 2 years.

    Did Not Work for Me

    I did AngelLift, the wipes and the lip product and the gel, faithfully from April 15th until today, Sept. 16th. It did not make any difference at all in my face. I am very disappointed because I did have faith in it when I saw it was on Shark Tank. Also the reviews from other women. I do have to say that the company is being honest in that they are refunding my money for the product. They have kept in touch and tried to help by telling me to double up on the bars. I tried that for 3 more weeks and still nothing. I was so hoping it would work. I tried my best. I am not telling others not to try it because maybe it will work for them. It just did nothing for me.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scam

    Don't waste your money. A sports mouth guard would work better than these cheap things. The price they put on two lousy pieces of plastic is to me a big scam.

    Do Not Buy This Product!

    After having them in place for about 20 minutes, my lips starting feeling like they had pins and needles in them. And the feeling lasted for hours afterwards. They say that the face cream that comes with it is all natural, not sure how that can be true since it bright blue. I don't see how it can be natural when it's that color. Their refund policy has so many conditions it's all most impossible to get your money back!

    Be Very, Very Careful

    • El Paso, TX,
    • Apr 27, 2016

    I decided to try this after seeing it on Shark Tank, since one of the members decided to invest in it. The product is very hard to keep in place on my upper & lower gums. They kept slipping down to my teeth. I contacted them & they said to use both strips, one on top of the other, to push out my lips further. The lip moisturizer & facial moisturizer didn't last out the first 30 days. After the 30 days I called to cancel & they said I was allowed to use it for 60 days & still get a refund.

    At 60 days I emailed them again that I wanted to know where to send everything back & was given another 30 days. I declined. The biggest rip off on returning the items is that you can't send them through the mail as they are considered chemicals even if they are all used up. The price to return by mail if you want to take the chance on the mail station throwing them out, is $9. You can return them by FedEx without any problems, but it would be $16.The post office told me to have AngelLift send me a prepaid return label either from them or Shark Tank, because they have a label that will allow them to send cosmetics through the mail. AngelLift refused. So now I will be sending it by FedEx. You ask why I told the post office what it was? No choice as they go by the mailing address & I guess they know what type of products are produced at the AngelLift company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Cheap and difficult to keep in place

    • North Carolina ,
    • Apr 14, 2016

    I have only used the strips for a week. The package arrived within 2 days of ordering. I watched the video and read the material. It came in a cheap case and the strips looked like thin gel shoe insert material. I have used them as directed for one week. Wearing the appliance I can feel the lift of my top lip. The effect last for about 5 minutes after wearing. I can not keep the appliance above the gum line. It continuously slips to cover my teeth. Cheap and bad design.

    I should take my old retainers and cut a piece of plastic or gel foot insert apply the lifter using non toxic glue to the retainer. Better yet, a sports month guard that costs 10.00 and doesn't need to be replaced.

    Even if this works (it takes 30 days to see results ), it is annoying to keep pushing the strips up and off my teeth. It's cheaply made, floppy and they want you to order new ones every 60 days. That will not be happening.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not worth it

    • Paulding, Ohio,
    • Apr 13, 2016

    Don't waste your money. The strips aren't meant for people with dentures EVEN AFTER I asked them if they could be used and they stated yes. They didn't stay in and kept slipping out of my mouth. The lip tube didn't have anything in it and the towels were just a waste. The return policy sucked too. You can only send back what you haven't used apparently, How do you find out if you like a product if you don't use it? It's been a waste of $100 that could have been used on something useful.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Definitely Something is happening

    • Seattle, Washington ,
    • Apr 8, 2016

    It is now an additional two weeks since my first review. The DermaStrips are now starting to erase the crease I have always hated around my neck making me feel older than I am. I am very happy with the results. I have to admit I don't use the DermaStrips regularly so I will not rate at this present time but will make more effort. I am changing my rating to a 4-star at this time. I will report back at 60 days.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Something is happening

    I have been using AngelLift regularly for about 10 days. After about 6 days of using the Demistrips, Dermasone, and Dermalips I can say that my lips exfoliated, which was something I did not know lips could even do. After that thin layer washed away my lips felt smoother. I have not been using the Dermastrips long enough to notice results but I intend to see what happens after 60 days.

    The Dermasone that came in the package says it could be enough to last about that length of time using approximately 2 beads at a time with the blue gel. I like the way my face feels after using it.

    I will report back to let the readers know if this product continues to make improvements and to perhaps change my 3 star rating.

    This is working wonders for me.

    • NC,
    • Apr 4, 2016

    I am 68 years old and I have deep vertical lines above my upper lip from being a former smoker for 35 years. I have been using the strip for about 2 months now and I am absolutely amazed to see the lines softening, lessening in how deep they are, and becoming much less noticeable. I hated these lines and tried almost everything to reduce them. Nothing has ever worked till now. I am delighted! I don't really see my upper lip increasing in fullness but I don't care. To see these lines changing so much is more than enough improvement for me.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
