The Dangers of ‘No-Needle’ Treatments
The Dangers with the NO Needle Filler, Wrinkle Erasing and Fat Dissolving…
New trends and fads are constantly emerging in the beauty industry and in regards to cosmetic injections. Often times, these new products and procedures lack any empirical evidence supporting their efficacy or safety.
We believe it is our responsibility to share that knowledge with our clients to help them make informed and safe choices in their care.
Lately, we have been seeing a lot of aesthetics practitioners to beauty therapists offering Hyaluron Pen lip plumping, fat dissolving and wrinkle erasing.
The goal of this blog post is to teach you about this new fad and the dangers associated with it in order for you to make the best decisions regarding your health and help you achieve your aesthetic and cosmetic goals safely.
What is the Hyaluron Pen?
The Hyaluron Pen was originally created for diabetic patients. It offered a needle-less, pain free way to deliver insulin into the subcutaneous tissue.
The Hyaluron Pen operates by creating enough pressure externally against the tissue to “push” the hyaluronic acid filler into the dermal layer of your skin without the use of needles. Most commonly in cosmetic cases, it is being used for lip plumping. However, there are also several advertisements promising entire wrinkle free faces without the use of needles.
Since its creation, the cosmetic world has manipulated the device to suit purposes it was not originally intended for.
Is the Hyaluron Pen safe?
The short answer to this question is “NO"
Medical experts have advised that the use of Hyaluron Pens for dermal fillers, fat dissolving or Wrinkle erasing may pose health risks. According to medical experts:
Potential side effects include:
• Inflammatory skin reactions
• Staining of skin
Additional risks, including:
• Bacterial and fungal infection due to contamination during filling
• Spreading of transmissible diseases due to cross-contamination between users
• Damage to skin, eyes or blood vessels due to excessive pressure or operator error.
The staff that offer are most often non trained professionals and are money led over client safety.
