The Hyaluronic Pen works by exerting sufficient external pressure against the tissue to push the hyaluronic acid filler into the skin layer without using needles. The Pen was initially created for people with diabetes. It offered a needle-less painless way of delivering insulin to the subcutaneous tissue. Nowadays, it is used for lip plumping and many cosmetic uses like wrinkle elimination, fillers, etc. This blog will cover more about Hyaluronic acid pen filler including its advantages and disadvantages.

Hyaluronic Acid Pen Filler – What Is It?
The Hyaluronic Pen is a device that injects hyaluronic acid into the lips using vital air instead of a needle. It is sold over the counter and online and is intended for home use without customer supervision. Many trusted surgeons and users describe the device as “advanced,” “painless,” and “non-invasive” and claim that it is less prone to bruising and swelling. If used without prescription or proper guidance, a hyaluronic acid pen is very dangerous and can cause serious side effects and consequences.
Hyaluronic Acid Pen Filler: Advantages
The hyaluronic acid pen filler device is entirely different from the hyaluronic acid lip injections. Here are some of the benefits of hyaluronic acid filler:
- No pain
- No need for needles.
- Immediate results lasting three-seven months
- Hyaluronic acid is evenly distributed as opposed to injected fillers
- No bloating, bleeding, and swelling.
Disadvantages of Hyaluronic Acid Filler Pens
The filler is not placed deep into the tissue like an injection; instead, it goes to the top layer of skin – the papillary dermis. The main drawback compared to the injected filler is that it does not last as long as an injected hyaluronic acid filler. However, the hyaluronic acid filler allows the pens to distribute the hyaluronic acid more evenly, thus creating a more natural effect.
How Does The Hyaluronic Acid Pen Filler Works?
The Hyaluronic Pen works by making the necessary pressure outside the tissue to push the hyaluronic acid filler into the skin without needing a needle.
The Hyaluronic Pen works by using only pressure to apply the filler to the desired area on your face. This patented technology makes painless injections wherever you want without having to deal with those tricky needles that are made to enhance the needle-free filler. You can use the hyaluronic pen for fine lines and wrinkles. The accessibility and usability of this device may work wonders for you. The pressure from the pen pushes the hyaluronic acid into your skin, causing it to thicken. In Oklahoma, Hyaluronic acid is commonly used to inject lip balm.
How to set up the Hyaluronic Acid Pen Filler?
- First and foremost, always work in a clean, sterile environment. Wash your hands, wear gloves and practice proper sanitary measures to avoid contamination.
- Prepare a good amount of alcohol nearby to clean the parts of the face you are treating. Hold the hyaluronic acid pen and twist it until it takes one of the empty ampoules. Fill the ampoules with the hyaluronic acid filler you are going to use. The tip is not to overfill the ampoule. Leave some air in the ampoule so it does not leak out when you screw it back on, thus reducing leakage and waste.
- Once the pen is loaded, you are ready to use the Hyaluronic Pen. Injecting the filer with a hyaluronan pen is not a problem – aim and shoot. Take your hyaluronan pen, pull the side lever, and lower it again. This allows air to get into the pen so you can ‘inject’ your fine lines with hyaluronic acid.
- Each time you use the pen, you must raise that lever and let more air get inside. No needles, just the pressure to make this pen work. When you submit the lever and lower it again for subsequent use, you will also need to twist the hyaluronic acid pen to prepare the acid for the next injection.
Is The Hyaluronic Acid Pen Filler Safe To Use?
There is no scientific evidence that the hyaluronic acid pen fillers are safe. They may be safe if you get treated by a surgeon using the filler. If you are using it DIY, there are higher chances that your skin might get affected, leading to threatening consequences. According to the Health United States website, possible side effects include:
- Inflammatory skin reactions
- Skin stain
Additional risks include Bacterial and fungal infections due to contamination during filling and will lead to the spread of contagious diseases due to contamination among the users. Other risks include damage to skin, eyes, or blood vessels due to excessive pressure or operator error.
Do we have any restrictions on using certain types of hyaluronic acid pen filler?
In the US, no state has publicly commented on such devices. However, drug administration (no matter the method of use) is considered a “drug regimen.”
According to the American Medical Spa Association, these needle-free injection devices should treat in the same way as traditional filler syringes. In Oklahoma, only licensed individuals, including Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, or Registered Nurses, can use the hyaluronic pens for treatment purposes.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerts the public and healthcare professionals not to use needle-free devices such as hyaluronic pens to inject hyaluronic acid (HA) or other lip and facial fillers.
Are There Any Differences Between Hyaluronic Acid Injections And Needleless Pens?
The difference between the hyaluronic acid needle injection and the standard needle injection of hyaluronic acid filler is the depth of the injection. As many of you know, hyaluronic acid lip injection lasts about two-three months. It does not last long like the pens because of the diameter of the injection.
A hyaluronic Pen allows the filler to spread evenly under your skin, which has a more natural effect than regular filler injections. Of course, the minimum time lag is a significant difference. The hyaluronic acid injection can create volume, shape, and lift in many face parts. Areas of treatment include lips, wrinkles on the forehead, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, and 11 lines between the eyebrows.
Hyaluronic acid pen treatment is excellent for augmenting the lips and reducing wrinkles. But Hyaluronic acid injections can only outstretch the papillary layer of the skin, making it a safe treatment without the risk of clogging and sharp tips for piercing blood vessels. Some powerful hyaluronic pens can be used for lipolysis injections, depending on the type of hyaluronic acid in the fat layer.
Cost Of Hyaluronic Acid Filler Pen Treatment
You can find Hyaluronic pens online priced at about $50 to a few hundred dollars, claim to pierce to a depth of about five to 18 millimeters and shoot with a high advertised force of nearly 1,000 PSI to 5,000 PSI. A high force applied to the face through injections might be the painless way to inject the acid but repeated, or regular usage might harm your face and skin in the long run. So, it is best to consult your doctor before trying your hyaluronic acid pen fillers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1.What is the dissimilarity between hyaluronic acid and other fillers?
First, a needle injects other fillers into the skin’s subcutaneous tissue. Not so with the Hyaluronic pen. The particular device we use pressurizes the stuffing into the skin, and then the Hyaluronic acid spreads to the epidermis and skin.
Q2. How long do results last?
Results last three-six months, depending on how suddenly your body metabolizes the Hyaluronic Acid Infusion.
Q3. Is it like Botox?
Botox is not a filler, or it is never injected into the lips. Botox temporarily cuts nerve signals to muscles, limits muscle movement, and facilitates wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid provides a low viscosity filler to the lips or facial skin to reduce wrinkles.
Q4. Is there a risk of occlusion?
The Hyaluronic Pen adds hyaluronic acid compound to the upper layers of the skin. Because the sharp needle tip is not used, it is impossible to go too deep or penetrate the blood vessel. However, there are risks involved in any procedure, so it is essential to go to a properly trained provider.
Q5. Can I get these therapeutics if I already have a lip filler?
Yes, If you have recently injected filler into the same area, we recommend waiting at least thirty days for Hyaluronic pen treatment.
