Needless Beauty Fillers

  Hyaluronic Pen's needless enhancements cannot be compared to the needle injections. Since they are two different methods with two different liquids, the swelling and results will not be the same.

  Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced in the body, but as we age its production of it naturally decreases. The naturalness of it means the duration will vary from person to person, but the first round of results is between 1 and 3 months. By continuing the procedures your clients will see these results lasting longer between treatments.

What Are Needless Fillers?

  • Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of temporary dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes, and skin. In the skin hyaluronic acid attracts water, which allows the skin to become more hydrated. As we age, the fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our face begins to thin. This loss of volume leads to either a sunken or sagging appearance of the face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and thin lips. Injectable HA is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and to create structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately.

  • Topical numbing agents or anesthetic injections can be used to improve patient comfort during the injection process. Also, lidocaine is commonly incorporated into most brands of HA fillers for further comfort measures. Before and following treatment, ice may be given to ease discomfort and swelling.

When Are Fillers Appropriate?

  • Wrinkles

Prepare for Filler Appointment

  • For 1 week prior avoid blood thinners & dehydrating substances like caffeine, alcohol, St. John’s Wart, Ginko Biloba, primrose oil, fish oil, vitamin E, aspirin, ibuprofen or similar products (Advil, Motrin, Aleve). They can cause bruising, bumps, more aggressive pinpoint marks & lack of volume.

  • For 1 week prior & 1 week after, avoid tretinoin, retinal, retinoids, glycolic acid, peels, skin sensitizing products.

  • 72 hours prior & 72 hours after, avoid highly processed foods as they grately dehydrate the body. Instead, eat spinach, kale and celery the week before to boost your levels of Vitamin K.

  • Drink 1/2 gallon or more water daily for 48 hours hours before and after treatment. Hyaluronic Acid bonds to other Hyaluronic Acid and water.

Aftercare for Filler Appointment

  •  During the 2-4 weeks after the procedure, you will experience all these phases.

    1. Healing of the irritation on the surface layers of the skin and management of potential lumps;

    2. Changes in the shape and thickness of skin; 

    3. Achieving of the stable new state. 

  • BE PREPARED FOR SOME SWELLING AND BRUISING. Immediately after the treatment, there may be redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, and/or itching near the treatment area. Avoid itching, massaging, poking or picking around the spots that mark the insertion of filler. This is completely normal and generally disappears within a few hours to a few days. If these symptoms last more than 3 days, please contact me.

  • Drink 1/2 gallon or more water daily for 48 hours hours before and after treatment. Hyaluronic Acid bonds to other Hyaluronic Acid and water.

  • 24 hours prior and as needed after take arnica montana tablets and an anti-inflammatory to help with swelling and bruising.

  • 24 hours prior and after avoid flying or saunas as they dehydrate the body.

  • 24 hours prior and after avoid rigorous workouts. New fresh fillers need time to set so lots of water and lack of rigorous movement for 24 hours after is key.
