Needle-less Hyaluronic Acid
We now offer this service by appointment only & proof of COVID vaccination due to the close contact with the client's mouth.
Hyaluronic needle free injection has become a popular cosmetic treatment since 2017. It is a new technology that allows a jet injector using high pressure to force a hyaluronic acid through a person’s skin. The result is less discomfort than a needle injection, which is why a lot of clients prefer this method! It causes less anxiety and trauma to the area, so this is ideal for anyone considering filler that is afraid of needles and causes minimal to zero bruising.
This treatment is perfect for lip augmentations as well as reducing wrinkles. The Hyaluronic Acid only reaches the papillary layer of the dermis, making this a safe treatment with no risk of occlusion as well as no sharp tips to puncture blood vessels. Some stronger Hyaluron Pens can be used for lipolysis injection, it is possible to reach fat layers, depending on the model of Hyaluronic Pen.
How does it work?
The device deposits Hyaluronic Acid filler into the epidermal and upper dermal layers of the skin. The hyaluronic acid is converted into nano-scale molecules and effortlessly inserts through the skin with the pressure technology from the Hyaluron Pen. The diameter of this flow is 0.17mm, which is twice as small as a needle. Since hyaluronic acid is converted into nano-scale molecules to be injected, the application is more comfortable and spreads to the desired areas much more evenly.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
"HA" is a natural sugar found in the human body, and happens to be the most hydrating substance in the world. Its primary function is to attract water and keep the skin hydrated, plump and youthful. The human body creates Hyaluronic Acid naturally, so it is impossible to be allergic to it, making it safe for even the most sensitive skin.
What’s the differences between Hyaluron needless injection VS regular filler injection?
The differences between Hyaluron Needless Injection and typical needle injection of hyaluronic acid filler is the injection depth. The Hyaluron Pen lip injection lasts for about 2-3 months. The reason it doesnt last as long is because of the diameter of injection that the Hyaluron Pen injects. While injections would need to be more frequent with the Hyaluron Pen, the Hyaluron Pen allows the filler to spread more evenly underneath your skin, resulting in a more natural effect when compared to regular filler injections. And of course, the with bare minimum downtime is a major difference as well.
Where can it be safely injected?
The needle free injection can be used to create volume, shape and lift in many areas of the face. Treatment areas include: Lips, forehead wrinkles, marionette lines, and 11 lines between the eyebrows.
As we age, our body decreases the amount of HA produced as well as collagen fibers. This decrease causes our skin and bodies to look older, with a loss of hydration and elasticity; therefore wrinkles form and the skin begins to sag. By adding HA into the skin, we revive the collagen and promote a fresher, more plump look.
How long do results last?
Results last 3-6 months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the HA Infusion.
Is this like Botox?
No, Botox is not a filler nor is it ever injected into the lips. Botox is used to temporarily cut off nerve signals to muscles, limiting the movement of said muscle and smoothing out the wrinkles. The HA Pen delivers a low viscosity filler into the lips for volume, or into the facial skin for wrinkle reduction.
What’s the difference between the Hyaluron Pen and other fillers?
First and foremost, other fillers are injected into the subcutaneous tissue of the skin using a needle. That is not the case with the HA Pen. The special device we use launches the fillers into the skin through pressure and then the HA spreads to the epidermis and dermis.
Is there a risk of occlusion?
The HA pen inserts the Hyaluronic Acid compound into the upper dermal layers of the skin. The risk of going too deep, or the likelihood of puncturing a blood vessel is virtually impossible as no sharp needle tip is used. However, there are risks with any procedure, so it is important to go to a provider with proper training.
Can I get this treatment if I already have a lip filler?
Yes, you can! We just recommend you wait at least 30 days for an HA pen treatment if you recently had filler injected into the same area.
