Hyaluron Pen

What is the Hyaluron Pen?


Ideal for clients that are frightened or uncomfortable with needles, this pain free treatment is less invasive and fast, and allows clients to plump and fill their lips. First things first, what is the thing? The Hyaluron Pen is a needle-free device that shoots Hyaluronic Acid in the lips. How is that possible? An intense amount of pressure – the pressure from the pen is strong enough to force the Hyaluronic Acid to turn into Nano Scale molecules and inserts the Hyaluronic acid Filler through the skin. The  Diameter of this flow is 0.17 mm, twice as small as the smallest insulin needle.  The mixture used is Hyaluronic acid.


What is Hyaluronic Acid?

A natural sugar found in the human body, hyaluronic acid is the most hydrating substance in the world.  It’s function is to attract water and keep skin hydrated, plump and youthful.  As the human body creates Hyaluronic Acid naturally, but as we age, the body decreases the amount of Hyaluronic Acid and collagen fibers. They dry up and become thinner, resulting in loss of hydration and elasticity, thus causes skin to sag and wrinkles to form.  By adding hyaluronic acid into the skin we revive the collagen and promote a fresher, plumper effect.


How Long does it last?

A minimum of 2 sessions is highly suggested if you have never had any type of filler in your lips before.   One session can last up to 3 months and the results are a more natural look and the treatment can be done every 3-4 weeks to “build” fuller lips until you achieve the size and plumpness you want.  Fillers can last 3-9 months sometimes longer BUT keep in mind everybody is different and results can vary depending on how fast your body metabolizes the filler. I recommend a series of 2-4 sessions per client. 


Why haven’t I heard about this before?

Hyaluron Pen is a new category as a procedure. Although being really simple, the device is actually incredibly powerful. Why? Because you can do a great deal with this little tool.  As one should know the technology was nothing new in the device itself. It has been used for inserting insulin for years. However, as of 2018 it is used to fill in wrinkles and also inject hyaluronic acid mixture into lips.

What is the difference between the Hyaluron Pen and filler injections?

Well, as a matter of fact, those two belong in different universes that overlap only a tiny bit (even though the part those overlap is blowing out greatly at the moment). Namely, fillers are injections that can have a large effect on the overall look of the human face. The thicker the filler is, the deeper it is injected and the larger and usually also permanent the effect is. When it comes to Hyaluron Pen the fillers that can be used are very liquid and can only be inserted to the upper layer of dermis – Papillary dermis. This means that it only competes with a small category of HA fillers that do the same thing.


Is it like botox?

No, it is absolutely not like botox. First of all, Botox is not a filler and it is never injected into lips (however, sometimes some client truly believe that it is). As one should know botox just temporarily cuts off the nerve signals to some muscles and thus limits the movements of those, achieving smoother skin as the wrinkles are now deepened by muscle movement. When it comes to Hyaluron Pen, it delivers very low viscosity, low elasticity filler into lips or facial skin. Two totally different tools that can sometimes solve the same problem.


How to prepare for the procedure:

  • Exfoliate and moisturize your lips. Vaseline or Aquaphor

  • HYDRATE!!! Drink lots of water before your appointment. Hyaluronic acid gel swells when it comes in contact with water, thus giving a smooth filling effect.


What to expect post treatment:

  • Slight pain and soreness

  • Redness and swelling

  • Minor bleeding or larger hematomas may occur but usually disappears in a couple of days


After Care:

  • Drink lots of water.  Its very important to stay hydrated to help with the retention

  • Avoid salty foods

  • Do not ICE your lips, this will freeze the hyaluronic acid in the lips

  • DO NOT massage or manipulate your lips for the next 2 weeks 

  • No hot drinks for 24 hours

  • Drink water

  • Avoid working out for 24 hours to reduce the risk of bruising

  • Avoid extreme temperatures such as saunas and tanning for 2 weeks

  • Do not use your personal lipstick or lipgloss for 48 hours

  • Only use the aftercare given to you.

  • Hydrate
