Hyaluron Pen - All you wanted to know about it
One of the most prominent reasons to publish this site was to demystify the hype related to Hyaluron Pen. As from the beginning of 2017, it has been a growing trend globally. As with many other such beauty trends the first actual scientifically sufficient experiments with Hyaluron Pen took place in 2016/2017 after that it became apparent that the basic concept of launching Hyaluron acid mixture into face, neck or lips with a pressure pen works. After that, it had a breakthrough in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and also to some extent in Russia.
What exactly is Hyaluron Pen?
Hyaluron Pen is a rather simplistic device that allows generating enough pressure to launch Hyaluron Acid mixture into human skin. However, by no means, is it a miracle solution that will turn lips of any sort into lush and beautiful or remove all the wrinkles. It is just a device of transferring liquid that is pretty vital when it comes to anti-aging and beauty into human skin.
Now, you may think, it’s just wonderful! Is it really?
When it comes to Hyaluron Pen, then as said before, it is no wonder solution. First of all, you have to be pretty realistic when it comes to the results one can expect. As we have tested different Hyaluron Pens a lot, we can confirm that some pretty good results can be achieved when it comes to different areas of the face. When it comes to filling the lips, then yes, in case the student has had a good training, a clear understanding of what shape she is after and a quality filler is used, the results can be excellent. However, it must be stated that only trained professionals should do the treatment. Therefore, under no circumstances do we urge anyone to try this procedure, id he or she has not had proper preparation, licence or education.
Are there any restrictions client-wise?
Of course, there are. However, those are not so much related to health risks (although to those as well) as those are related to being able to meet client’s expectations. As we know, there are different categories of wrinkles and it is a pretty bad idea to take the Hyaluron Pen and tell gullible clients that those can be fixed. The skin gets a bit swollen at first, then the effects last for a couple of weeks, maybe a month, and the situation looks as it was before - no better, no worse. Thus, we would categorize Hyaluron Pen to be more of a solution for aesthetically improving one’s appearance and not fighting the effects of ageing. When it comes to lips, the treatment is often offered with some pigmentation (of course done after the lips have healed after the refill) and the results look great. The procedure most definitely can not be done to pregnant women, hyper-sensitive people, oral herpes should be treated before the procedure etc. Obviously, if the filler has some lidocaine, it can not be used, if the client is allergic to that etc.
What can go wrong?
As with absolutely all beauty treatments, always many things can go wrong. Still compared to injecting the fillers the risks are lower. First the filler mixture - if it’s of the highest quality, noncarcinogenic, nontoxic, of course, persistent, then you are off to a good start (please also always make sure what fillers can be used in your country). When it comes to using the pen then the pain is really surprisingly minimal - it does not hurt nearly as much as injecting, thus many who have come for the procedure and have been afraid to take a refill to injected Hyaluronic Acid, have been pleasantly surprised. As well as it would nowadays be pretty hard to cause Necroses with the Hyaluron Pen and there are many reasons for that. Still, the procedure should be avoided (as all the lip related procedures) in the case of Herpes, Hypersensitivity etc.
What to keep in mind when selecting fillers?
Obviously, one has to start with the legal aspects. If you have never done anything medical related before there may also be restrictions on what substances you can you are even allowed to use (depending on the country). Still, in most cases, the selection is quite wide. If you decide to order something from China or other distant places the inc list may not exactly match the actual contents of the product. So-called bad fillers are not bad in the sense that those would actually propose any sort of danger to clients (although that can also happen), however, those just do not work. Mainly, we suspect the concentration of actual Hyaluronic Acid is lower (we do not believe, as some suspect that it would be animal based, because it would actually be more complicated in most cases to produce it that way - from roost combs etc - and it’s not even worse as a substance, still, as almost all fillers are not animal based, the producers just love to stress this fact on marketing purposes), bad ones must have lower molecular weight and definitely worse degree of cross-linking (that makes such Hyaluronic fillers degrade too fast), or sometimes the gel may be just too hard when it comes to viscosity and inserting that is pretty impossible :) Thus, in a word, the bad fillers just do not work or in worst case do not provide the elasticity or plasticity you are after when it comes to lips (however, most probably, you would not even be able to insert those into skin properly). In addition to that there is always a very dangerous and luckily improbable event that the person doing the treatment injects something totally toxic into lips that will never dissolve. If you do that then complications are guaranteed (however, then again, it presupposes extreme stupidity and opportunism if one even considers inserting something of unknown origin into human body).
Is it the new gold rush and will the providers of this procedure become rich?
Of course, there are many people who try to get rich with hyaluron pen. However, it won’t happen too easily. The procedure is not very hard to accomplish technically and the results, especially when it comes to lips and smile-lines, can look nice. However good results are achieved only if the beautician knows what she’s doing. If she doesn’t know anything about the anatomy of the face, aesthetics of shaping the lips then there is absolutely no way the results could even achieve a satisfactory level. She just most probably finds a client that wants to pump something into her lips, she swings it, lips become thicker, maybe also asymmetrical, however, it shall pass.
It is a fact that the combination of the conditions for the gold-rush indeed exists as Hyaluron Pen ticks all the boxes. The treatment cost is really low (around 50-100 eur depending on the volumes) and the price relatively high (depending on the country from 150 to even 450 eur). Some just order the device from China and start blowing random liquid into someone’s lips. This has and always will lead to problems. Although, as being said, the pens are quite similar and far majority of those allow the liquid to be pushed in, the real difference between a potential disaster and excellent result lays in two criteria: skills of the beautician to shape the lips in a natural and beautiful way and the quality of the filler. In most cases you get what you pay for and if the mixture is much cheaper than quality brands or you get it for nothing you get exactly that when it comes to the result of the treatment.
What is the correct name Hyaluron Pen or Hyaluronic Pen?
There is absolutely no doubt that the correct name is Hyaluron Pen - it has been internationally accepted and this term was indeed coined in 2018. The term Hyaluronic Pen is an alternative spinoff that is not incorrect per se, however does not represent the essence of the procedure correctly. Namely, the term Hyaluronic would hint that the pen itself would be hyaluronic in some sense. Well, it is not. It’s a pen to transfer Hyaluron to human body, thus it' should be called Hyaluron Pen. There is absolutely no sense to swim against the current when it comes to this. However, of course, as it has always been with all the gold-rush situations similar to this - many providers start advertising their magnificent treatments without even being able to spell Hyaluron Pen the correct way :)
Is it semi-permanent? No…
By no means should the procedure even be called semi-permanent, as in the beauty industry fillers category the substance that is inserted into skin should be much longer lasting and stable like Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) to be considered semi-permanent. One has to understand that compared to CaHa (a well-studied filler produced as Radiesse), for example, that gives volume and boosts natural collagen production, Hyaluronic fillers do not stimulate collagen production at all, it just temporarily enters the skin and is then absorbed. Thus fillers used with Hyaluron Pen are always non-permanent. Depending on the technician those can be cross-linked or non-crosslinked.
What is this Hyaluronic Acid?
One of the reasons the procedure is rather simple and the substance inserted into the skin is safe is that the human body produces the exact same acid, that is actually composed of two sugars (Glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine). No need to get scared by the chemistry related terms, the point is simple: as the human body makes the exact same chemical substance, it is pretty impossible that one would get any sort of allergic reaction or complication from the substance itself. For fillers, the substance is produced using a bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus) that basically makes it rather easy to produce it. Now, obviously one should understand why the Hyaluronic Acid exists in the human body (joints, eyeballs, skin). Hyaluronic Acid produced by the body itself exists in Epidermis and Dermis layers of the skin and one of the main functions of it is to keep water inside the skin tissue (being part of the collagen fiber network in Dermis). Keeping it simple: the more Hyaluronic Acid there is inside the Epidermis and more importantly Dermis layer of the skin, the more water is retained in the skin, the moister it is and the more youthful it looks.
What happens to our own Hyaluronic Acid?
Over the course of the years, two things happen: the body itself produces less Hyaluronic Acid. More specifically the collagen fiber network is stretched and becomes allows less Hyaluronic Acid molecules to bind with water. It results in lesser hydration of the skin that (combined of course with the thinning of fat tissue on forehead and cheeks and thickening of it on the neck and chin and some changes in bone structure over the years), results in deepening wrinkles. However, one should understand that Hyaluronic acid molecule is a pretty tough fighter, as being a polymer and very hydrophilic (meaning it can form an enormous amount of connections and it loves to bind with water molecules, often being able to bind up to hundreds of times its own weight) it still holds the extracellular matrix pretty strong. Just the ability to be able to retain water decreases over time (thus the wrinkles etc) because the amount of collagen and thus also Hyaluronic Acid decreases.
What happens when you add some Hyaluronic Acid into the skin?
Compared to the Hyaluronic Acid found in the body and the Hyaluronic Acid inserted into the skin, as said before, the substance is exactly the same. Actually, it is exactly the same all over the species. However, if you get a good filler, the longevity of this absolutely different. Namely, the Hyaluronic Acid the human body produces has a pretty short lifespan (around 2-4 days), however the Hyaluronic Acid inside the carrier that you are able to treat the Dermis with can last for months (more specifically 3-6 months, usually, when it comes to fillers that can be inserted into Demis). Why would that last so much longer? It depends on the polymeric chains of the substance - namely, it is possible chemically achieve so-called cross-linking, that allows a higher number of connections to be made between the molecules of the Hyaluronic Acid inside the filler, thus slowing down the enzymatic degradation. Basically, it means that the substance still is removed from the body through the absolutely natural degradation process and it just takes more time, allowing the Hyaluronic Acid inserted to retain the water inside the skin all over its longer life-span. And, it also has to be added, that whatever filler you are dealing with, you do not want it to stay inside the skin forever (it may lead to several problems, as we all know, happened with silicone fillers). Thus the fact that you have to come for a refill in 4-6 months, is a good thing.
Please be noted!
Training and education are valuable tools that can help you grow and develop your practice. However, before you spend your money on training, make sure you legally are able to perform the procedures. Education, skill and competency—these or similar terms are found throughout rules and regulations that govern medical and nursing practices, and they communicate the uncontroversial idea that a person should have some skill to safely perform a medical procedure on another person. But training and education alone won’t empower you to perform procedures—only a professional license or certification can do that.
This is the case with all professional licensure, from barbers to lawyers to nurses and doctors: Completing courses will give you the important skills you will need in your future profession. But it is the local regulatory board granted license that legally authorises you to offer those professional services to others. Investing in training, education and skill development is crucial to having a successful career in beauty business. But because different regions have different rules on professional scopes of practice, supervision and delegation, it is important to make sure your money is wisely spent. You must be sure that your local licensing boards include the new procedure in your scope of practice, because you also have to understand our business - online training is never refunded. Otherwise it was essentially a free service. We also need to keep the lights on and therefore let us all be reasonable and help each other.
Hyaluron Pen Academy can not and does not guarantee in any way that the student will license to provide the service, nor does the Hyaluron Pen Academy guarantee that the student will get insurance in his/her specific location. Getting insurance depends on a wide range of aspects related to student background, insurance history, previous qualifications, experience, etc. It is 100% responsibility of the student to get the information about insurance possibilities before joining the training and Huyaluon Pen Academy will not get involved in that in any way.
Hyaluron Pen Academy does not sell any physical devices or supplies. We can make suggestions regarding product sources, however, everyone is responsible for his/her product chose. Hyaluron Pen Academy does not also give any sort of medical advice - we are a training institution with a great course that explains the anatomy of the skin, different fillers, aging, effects of the hyaluronic acid, etc.
