Lip Filler

Needle-free

Needle-free lip filler is a revolutionary new service offered by our skin care clinic. This innovative technology uses pressurized air to deliver hyaluronic acid and other fillers directly into the lips, creating beautiful, fuller lips without the need for needles or discomfort. It is a safe and effective way to enhance your lips and boost your confidence.

How it does it work

The device deposits Hyaluronic Acid filler into the lips by way of a Hyaluron Pen.  This "pen" was originally created for diabetic patients to offer a needle-free and pain free way to deliver insulin into the subcutaneous tissue.

 

Hyaluronic Acid is converted into nanoscale molecules and is effortlessly inserted through the skin with air pressure and a needle-free syringe.  The diameter of the flow is 0.17mm, which is twice as small as an insulin needle.  Since Hyaluronic Acid is converted into nanoscale molecules, the application is more comfortable, brings less trauma to the skin, and spreads to the desired areas much more evenly.  Thus, giving your lips a much more natural enhanced look and feel without the recovery time caused by needles.

What is Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural sugar found in the human body, and happens to be the most hydrating substance in the world.  Its primary function is to attract water and keep the skin hydrated, plump and youthful.  Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000x it's own weight in water giving back skin hydration and volume.  By adding HA into the skin, we revive collagen as well, promoting a fresher and more plumped effect. The human body creates Hyaluronic Acid naturally, so there are no allergic reactions, making is safe for even sensitive skin.

 

Needle-free vs. Needle Injected (Fillers)

Both applications use Hyaluronic Acid as a filler, the only difference is the density.  A less dense filler is used for needle-free injection, to allow the nanoscale molecules to penetrate and spread evenly under the skin.  Lasting effect depends on the "building" process first.  Very thin lips may require 2ml-3ml's with 5 days in between applications to avoid bruising and swelling.  Medium to fuller lips typically only requires 1ml for desired results.

 

*** PLEASE NOTE *** It is recommended to book your appointment with at least a 4-5 day advance to allow for Pre-Treatment guidelines to be followed. 

** Pre Treatment (Important to follow)

 

  • Hydrate!  Drink plenty of water prior to treatment.  Hyaluronic Acid holds onto water and this creates better results and keeps lips plump longer.

  • Do not take any aspirin, ibuprofen or similar products (Advil, Motrin, Aleve) for one week prior to procedure.

  • Avoid fish oil, Vitamin E, and gingko biloba for 1 week prior to this procedure.

  • To help decrease the possibility of bruising or swelling, take Arnica tablets 3 days prior to treatment (these just get dissolved under the tongue) and for three days following treatment.  These can be purchases on Amazon or check with your local pharmacy as some do carry them OTC.  Follow instruction accordingly.

** Post Treatment (Important to follow)

  • Hydrate!  Continue to drink lots of water for longer lasting results.

  • Continue with Arnica tablets for 3 days.

  • Apply Arnica gel often to help with swelling or any bruising that may have occurred.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after treatment.

  • Avoid hot temperatures (sun, tanning beds) for 24 hours after treatment.

  • For any discomfort or swelling you may use a cold pack (or ice wrapped in wet cloth) 5 min on and 5 minutes off.  But do not apply ice directly as this will freeze the Hyaluronic Acid.

  • Avoid excessive salt for 24 hours as this can dehydrate.

  • Again, drink plenty of water.
