ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE HYALURON PEN!
What is The Hyaluron Pen?
The Hyaluron Pen is an innovation that deposits Hyaluronic Acid Filler into the epidermal and upper dermal layers of the skin without traditional needles or injections. 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, fine lines and wrinkles. Through the pressure technology the pen uses pressure which causes 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. The Hyaluron Pen can be used to create volume, shape and lift. Treatment areas include: Lips, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, 11 lines, forehead wrinkles. Perfect for lip augmentations and 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.
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 it is impossible to be allergic to it.
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. Hyaluronic Acid is the main structural element of connective tissue.
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 – it combines approaches that have so far being used in mesotherapy and fillers, plus it is totally safe.
When was it first introduced?
As one should know the technology was nothing new in the device itself. It has been used for inserting insulin for years. However, now from the spring of 2018 it is used to fill in wrinkles and also inject hyaluronic acid mixture into lips. It started steady growth in smaller in beauty aesthetic groups from then on. After larger introductions in the early autumn of 2018, it became widely more popular. The blow-out point was early winter 2018.
Is it better than Plasma pen?
Once again those two also are a very different beast. When it comes to overall vitalizing of the facial skin, Hyaluron Pen can do a pretty good job. When it comes to wrinkles, it has limitations regarding very superficial wrinkles (caused by the movement of muscles) or very deep wrinkles (usually in the facial skin of truly old clients). With the most common depth according to various wrinkle-rating scales, the Hyaluron Pen does a pretty good job. We can definitely say that the principle technique of increasing the HA contents of the skin works better than rather superficial treatments. And that all concerns just the removal of wrinkles. When it comes to filling the lips, Plasma pen is pretty much useless and Hyaluron Pen dominates totally.
Why is it so popular?
There are three most important reasons why a beauty procedure and device related to that form a new category and become super popular. First, it has to affordable to start with. Every once in a while treatments appear that promise miracles. Sometimes they deliver, sometimes not. However, if the initial investment to try what exactly can be done, is too high, not enough people even care to find out, even fewer start doing it and it will never take off as a new category because not enough clients even start to share their experience. Sooner or later a more affordable alternative comes that knocks it off and achieves massive popularity. Secondly, it has to be possible to start using it without extreme education. If a tool or a solution is affordable, but the person using it has to learn something for years to be licensed to use that, it’s just an obstacle hard to pass. It limits greatly the popularity of such solutions. Thirdly, it has to underpromise and overdeliver. It has to do the job and do it better than the other solutions. In addition to that totally safely. In most cases solve a problem not just enhance something a little bit. As one probably knows, microblading blew out because it ticked all the boxes, so does Hyaluron Pen.
What does it do exactly – make a skin a bit better, smoother?
No, no and no once again. Compared to countless beauty procedures that act as ‘vitamins’ making something a little bit of better, Hyaluron Pen is a ‘penicillin’ type of solution. The client has a problem and Hyaluron Pen solves it elegantly. Some concrete examples? Small and thin lips – usually with a 0.5 ml – 1 ml the problem is solved. Same applies to wrinkles. Heavy and deep smile lines propose a problem – simple. Hyaluron Pen provides a solution that works – wrinkles disappear. Thus in this sense, we can be talking about a concrete problem solver not just another one of those “enhancing” solutions that definitely make something a little bit better, however, does not solve the true problem. When you want a change that can clearly be seen, then we absolutely suggest, you opt in for the Hyaluron Pen.
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.
Is one better than the other?
Well, not necessarily. As we all just know, injecting botox can be a way more dangerous, if the person is not an absolute professional who has enough medical and aesthetic beauty intervention background.
Is the Hyaluron Pen treatment absolutely safe?
Well, nothing is absolutely safe and even a microblading artist can poke someone’s eye out if she is not careful enough. Still compared to injecting fillers (that the safety of Hyaluron Pen often gets compared to) it is totally safe. Why? Well, the most terrible problems with injections come, as we all know from blocked blood vessels to which an unfortunate treatment provider has injected some filler. For example, filling some large enough artery with thick enough substance can restrict some Oxygen movement to eyes and actually cause temporary or permanent blindness in the worst case. With Hyaluron Pen it is anatomically impossible to inject the substance even close the same way, thus there are no such risks.
