What is the Hyaluron Pen?
The Hyaluron Pen is a needle-free device that uses pressure to inject Hyaluronic Acid mixture into the skin. This technology is nothing new; the device has been used for years to painlessly inject insulin into patients with diabetes. In the last couple years, however, the beauty industry adopted the pen technology for cosmetic use. And it’s become wildly popular thanks to its non-invasive nature and impressive results.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid (Glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine) is a natural sugar found within the human body in the joints, eyeballs, and skin. This water-loving molecule helps to preserve and retain moisture in the skin. As we age, the body produces less Hyaluronic Acid, resulting in less hydration and more wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid is a hydrating powerhouse and can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water, improving skin quality and appearance.

The Hyaluron Pen can be used to create volume, shape, and lift by painlessly injecting Hyaluronic Acid mixture into the epidermal and upper dermal layers of skin.

How does the Hyaluron Pen work?
The Nano Hyaluron Pen is a device with a special pistol and spring that uses pressure for quick and painless injections into the skin. The microscopic holes used to inject the Hyaluronic Acid mixture is 3X smaller than a hypodermic needle. Because there is no needle, the Hyaluron Pen provides a more uniform distribution of the Hyaluronic Acid mixture. And the mixture is absorbed more efficiently. This virtually painless technology is perfect for clients who are afraid of needles. Or clients who want to flirt with lip fillers but aren’t ready or willing to commit to a more-expensive, permanent procedure.

The 0.3ml tip is perfect for use on the face and lips, and the 0.5ml tip is ideal for use in fat dissolve treatments and mesotherapy.
Is the Hyaluron Pen safe?
Hyaluronic Acid is found in the human body; therefore, your clients won’t be allergic to it. Furthermore, because the Hyaluron Pen is a needle free device, it is much safer than injections. The risk of blocking blood vessels is virtually non-existent and swelling and bruising is minimal. And needle-free means the procedure isn’t painful.
