As a Registered Nurse that strives to be very wholistic and natural with ingredient and products… this is up my ally!!
This is the latest trend and the NATURAL alternative to synthetic facial fillers. If you shy away from needles this could be the answer, for people who have a needle phobia and are looking to Plump Lips, Cheeks and reduce the depth of Lines and Wrinkles. This NO NEEDLE Hyaluronic Filler Pen treatment is an affordable pain free option. Filler with the needle can be very painful. There is bleeding and bruising involved not to mention the trauma to the skin from the needle can actually cause scar tissue!
The Hyaluronic pen uses pressure to deliver hyaluronic acid into the skin. The ingredients rejuvenate and lift the skin, providing hydration and stimulating collagen production leaving lips plump and wrinkles filled in.
The Hyaluron filler treatment re hydrates the skin. There is little or no pain, clients describe the sensation as similar to very slight pins and needles and there is no recovery time.
What is Hyaluronic Acid
A natural sugar found in the human body, Hyaluronic Acid is the main structural element of connective tissue. It’s function is to attract water and keep skin hydrated, plump and youthful. 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. This 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. As the human body creates Hyaluronic Acid naturally it is impossible to be allergic to it. Of course that’s keeping in mind that the product being used is pure, sterile, with no added buffers, or from animals!
How Does it Work
Hyaluron Pen is a rather simplistic device that generates enough pressure to launch Hyaluronic acid mixture into human skin. This service is considered to be little or no pain, in some cases the sensation is described as pins and needles.
Difference between the Hyaluron Pen and needle filler injections?
Needle 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 more liquid less dense and can only be inserted to the upper layer of dermis – Papillary dermis by a pressurized pen, not a syringe.
How long does this treatment last?
Depending on the look you are wanting to achieve, this can take 2-4 appointments especially for lips since we will do max of 1 syringe (1 ml) at an appointment.
The results can last from 4-12 months (depending on the area) , however clients lifestyle will have a factor in the longevity of this natural product. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.
No recovery time is required, and clients can return to work, and carry out normal activities immediately ( except smoking for at least 10 hours after, unlike traditional fillers administered by traditional techniques. You are less likely to bruise but it can happen. There may be some slight swelling, redness, tenderness but only lasts for a few hours to 24/48 hours.
#1: Don’t expect initial fullness to stay the same.
Swelling and soreness after your filler treatment is completely normal and therefore the size of your lips or facial area swelling immediately after treatment is not a true reflection of the final result. Minor swelling can last between a few hours or day, possibly longer, depending on multiple factors.
#2: How to reduce swelling after fillers.
- DO NOT Apply ice to treated area
- Stay hydrated – drink plenty of water
- Focus on eating healthy foods like fresh fruits & vegetables. The vitamins and minerals will assist with the healing process
- Processed, spicy or fast foods
- Heavy activity or exercise for the first two days after treatment
- Excess salt – it makes you dehydrated!
- Blood-thinning medications, including aspirin and ibuprofen (unless prescribed by your medical practitioner then please continue with these)
- Smoking and smoke exposure
- Do NOT have a facial, nor rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours after your treatment
- Do NOT lie down or do strenuous exercise for three hours after treatment.
#3: Leave plenty of time for Hyaluronic Acid Pen filler prior to a big event, like a wedding.
Like everything associated with a big event, it’s all about planning! It’s always best to start a new treatment well before a big event. We recommend that you allow at least 2-3 weeks for your treatment to settle. If you’re a first time client, we recommend 6 weeks prior to the event. Remember, every client is different, and results can vary between individuals.
Area that can be filled: FULL LIPS, Smile Lines, Marionette Lines, Nasolabial Fold, 11’s, Cheek Volume, Jaw Volume, Whole or Partial Face Messotherapy and others!
* Price is based on 1 syringe (or 1ml) dosage of Hyaluronic Acid (we will always start lips with only 1ML of product, we feel that it’s better to build things up gradually).
* Results will vary from person to person and typically last anywhere from 2 to 6 months (some companies say longer 4-18 months…. It really all depends on the health of skin and area treated)
* As with any filler treatment, there may be some bruising for a few days. It can be covered with makeup.

What’s the difference between fillers done with a hyaluron pen and a needle?
The hyaluron pen is completely non invasive and the depth that the filler goes into the dermis is shallower than with needles. It gives you PLUMP and POUT versus needled filler that gives you protrusion. The hyaluron pen, when compared to needles, significantly minimizes or eliminates risks of occlusion, infection and pain.
