What dermal filler is used?

Hyaluronic Acid

Is Hyaluronic Acid Beneficial?

Well known for the benefits it provides including moisturization, delivery of water, film formations and antioxidant effects. Thus causing a plumping and smoothing effect in the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin.

Allergy Risk?

Allergic reactions are uncommon because Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to those found in your body.

How does the Hyaluronic Pen work?

The pen uses pressure to easily penetrate the skin without needles.

Safe Injection Method?

Treatment is considerably safer and risk-free when compared to needle injections. The reason for that are the following: with the pen the injection does not break the walls of larger blood vessels (thus there is no risk of necroses) and also there is no damage to nerves (that is often common with lip injection with needles)

Pain

Discomfort levels vary but is none for some and low for others. No numbing cream is necessary as treatment is quick and discomfort is momentary.

How much is advised?

Start with the smallest dosage possible, usually 1 ml per session.

How long does it last?

Short Answer: Longevity will vary as it depends on the client. Results can last from 6 weeks to 6 months or longer but that is dependent on several factors, most of which can only be controlled by the client.

Through Answer: Your hydration levels, lifestyle, the treatment area, if you already have base filler in the treatment area(s). The most important factor is how quickly your body metabolizes the HA. If an individual is losing wight, has a fast metabolism or works out frequently, the product will be processed by the body quicker. Also, if an individual goes in a sauna, eats lots of salty foods, goes on an airplane, does hot yoga or anything else dehydrating in the first 1-2 weeks after getting filler while the product is still setting, it can significantly shorten the lifespan of the product. If you are new to injectables fillers you can always expect the product to have a shorter life span. You will need to build up the filler and moisture in the skin to help the filler to last longer.

Cost?

$300 for 2 ml, administered over 2 sessions, 2 weeks apart. Longevity is cumulative and we need to build the volume you want to achieve. With each treatment (as long as there is still filler in your treatment area), your results will last longer and longer.

Who should not be treated?

-Pregnant or breastfeeding

-Under 18 years of age

-Hypersensitive

-Active Oral Herpes

-History of a severe compromised immune stystem

-Undergoing immunosuppressive therapy

Swelling and Bruising?

Immediately after the treatment there may be redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, and/ or itching near the treatment area. Typically subsiding within two days, experiences vary but most clients will tell you there is no discomfort at all.

What to avoid for 24 hours?

Clients should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. This minimizes the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. An ice pack can be applied to the site if you experience swelling.

Lumps and Bumps?

Initial bumps can be due to injection site injury and swelling (not necessarily the product). Lumps and bumps tend to disappear on their own but can take up to two weeks to integrate and spread.

Is this the right filler for me?

This filler is water dependent as it attracts water molecules to create a plumping effect. You must stay hydrated and avoid foods or activities that dehydrate you. If you have trouble staying hydrated this might not be the best option for you.
