What is the Hyaluron Pen treatment?
The pen was actually first designed to eliminate the use of needles for those who suffer from diabetes, and has since been used by the beauty industry to allow for no needle fillers.
The pressure from the pen is strong enough to force the filler into the skin.
The active ingredient used, hyaluronic acid, rejuvenates and lifts the lip area, as well as stimulating collagen production.
How the Hyaluron Pen Treatment Works
The Hyaluron Pen (also known as hyaluronic acid pen) is a small handheld medical device that is used to administer hyaluronic acid fillers into the face. This “pen” was originally created for diabetic patients to offer a needle-free, pain-free way to deliver insulin into the subcutaneous tissue.
The Hyaluron Pen works by creating enough pressure external to the tissue to “push” hyaluronic acid filler into the skin without using a needle. It is most commonly being used for lip injections.

Patients that may not be eligible for the treatment
Due to certain health conditions, some may not be allowed or may be evaluated further to take this treatment. This is for the protection of the health and safety of the patient. We have enumerated here the following conditions that may prevent the patient to undergo the Hyaluron Pen treatment and thus the practitioner must be notified:
- Allergic reactions to hyaluronic products
- Anaphylactic or a history of a serious allergic reaction
- Keloid formers
- Pregnant or nursing a child
- Recent dental/facial surgery
- Viral infections such as herpes or simplex (cold sores)

Is it safe?
As with all treatment procedures, there is always a potential risk, however it is minimal with the Hyaluron Pen. Some clients might experience swelling, bruising or blood spot right after the treatment.
How long does this treatment last?
The average duration for results is 3-7 months, however your lifestyle and metabolism will have a factor in the longevity of the hyaluronic acid.
- Your lips will likely be swollen after the procedure. You may also notice some redness or bruising at the injections sites, which is normal. Most side effects will be minor, and you will be able to resume most activities once the procedure is done.
- Apply ice to your lips using an ice pack or an ice cube covered in cloth (so it doesn’t stick to the lip and cause pain). This will help ease swelling, itching, bruising, and any other pain.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours after you get lip or any other dermal fillers. Elevated blood pressure and heart rate from exercise may make swelling or bruising worse. It’s fine to engage in light activity like walking.
- Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help your body heal. Hyaluronic Acid is also a humectant (attracts water) so drinking plenty of water will lengthen the life of your fillers.
- Eat plenty of hydrating fruits and vegetables and try to avoid excess sodium, which may worsen swelling. Eat fresh pineapple, as it contains bromeliad that has been known to decrease bruising.
- Avoid high temperatures like steam rooms, saunas, or heated exercise classes for 48 hours after treatment. High heat can make swelling more pronounced.
- Ask your doctor which painkillers are OK to take in the days after your treatment. Paracetamol are fine, but not blood-thinning medications like Ibuprofen or Aspirin.
- Avoid the following for a few days after your treatment - Aspirin, NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Aleve, Motrin etc) St John's Wort, Vitamin E, Multivitamins, Krill Oil, Fish Oils, Flaxseed Oils, Omega-3, Gingko, Ginseng, Garlic & Glucosamine - These all thin the blood so can cause bleeding or bruises.
- Try to sleep with your head elevated on pillows to reduce swelling. Do not sleep on your face.
- Avoid makeup on your lips for at least 24 hours after.
- Alcohol acts as a blood thinner and should be avoided for at least 24 hours after getting lip fillers. Alcohol can cause inflammation, increase the likelihood of bruising, and make swelling worse. It’s also a good idea to avoid alcohol a few days before your appointment. too.
- Avoid flying for 1 week following your procedure. This is because the air pressure in a plane can make swelling and bruising worse.
- If you’re getting lip fillers for a specific event, make sure to leave plenty of time in between the procedure and the event to allow your lips to properly recover.
