The Hard Truth About The ScalpaJect Hyaluron Pen
Whether you use the ScalpaJect hyaluron pen or another pen, whether you use ScalpaJect hyaluronic acid gel or another type of hyaluronic acid gel, there are a few facts that remain the same across the board.
With hyaluron pen enhancements, there will be seepage on occasion out the sides of the ampoule, there will be product streaming out occasionally once you pull the pen away from the skin, and there can be product shooting out when cocking and twisting the chamber.
To date, Scalpa has purchased several different hyaluron pens to test and this is the truth about each one.
To date Scalpa has tested ScalpaJect hyaluronic acid gel, Juvaderm, Hyafilia, Restylane and other off-brand hyaluronic acid products, both thick and thin. We can report that they all show seepage. They also all last about the same amount of time in the skin when using hyaluron pen enhancements. The longevity varies from person to person, but on average, it appears that four months is a good estimate on people with no hyaluronic acid products in skin and six months for those with hyaluronic acid product in the skin already.
For those who have never had ScalpaJect hyaluron pen enhancements, we find that several sessions will grant the best results. This was found with all hyaluronic acid products and all hyaluron pen enhancement procedures.
Scalpa also found that smaller mature lips actually require more than larger lips to see a significant enhancement. It was discovered that the ScalpaJect hyaluronic acid gels for hyaluron pen enhancements are better because of the consistency and perfected density which have shown the least amount of seepage.
After the trial of many hyaluron pens, Scalpa found that the current ScalpaJect hyaluron pen is the most comfortable in the hand and the easiest to cock and operate because of its design. The ScalpaJect hyaluron pen also hurts less on the skin compared to some of the other makes on the market.
The ScalpaJect hyaluron pen is a wonderful device and alternative to needle enhancements. While it is wonderful, it is limited as to how deep it can inject, but this is across the board for all hyaluron pens. And although it is a powerful device, it is only able to deliver through the skin a certain amount of product with each injection which will result in the rest pushing out the sides or even squirt out of the ampoule once removed from the skin. This can even happen as soon as you cock and twist the pen as it’s pressurizing and ultimately forcing out the product.
Scalpa also concludes that it can leave behind puncture wounds at injection sites that can remain inflamed for a few days, especially when doing facial enhancements. These sites will appear and feel like tiny bumps. Massaging will speed up the healing time. Just like standard needle enhancements, the ScalpaJect hyaluron pen can also leave behind small lumps which will require intensive massaging.
However, unlike needle enhancements, most bumps or lumps that are visible on day one will soften on their own within 24 hours. This is a big advantage over needle enhancements and any experienced injector will tell you that this is the most common side effect of needle injections.
Scalpa has also learned that minor swelling can occur when using thicker hyaluronic acid products. This is the result of larger hyaluronic acid molecules being pushed through the skin.
In conclusion, the hyaluron pen offers a great alternative to standard needle injections as it offers less downtime, pain, and instant results. However, it cannot directly compare to standard needle injections. Scalpa also concludes that with any hyaluron pen and any hyaluronic acid gel or filler, there will be seepage. There will also be possible side effects such as lumps and bumps. These facts stay true for all hyaluron pen enhancements and are very important to know and convey when considering offering this procedure as a business or receiving as a treatment.
Scalpa finds that the best way to market the ScalpaJect hyaluron pen enhancements is to present it as a method of introducing hyaluronic acid and other skin rejuvenation products into the skin in a pain-free and needle-free method, resulting in subtle fullness enhancements. This procedure also increases one’s own natural collagen production thus resulting in future fullness naturally.
Properly informing your clients will help with any future confusion or misinformation. Many people assume they will have the results of Kylie Jenner in just one session but that is not even possible with one treatment of needle injections, let alone the hyaluron pen. These results will be natural and subtle but it will increase the production of collagen for future fullness and can be built up for more desired results. It is essential to convey realistic expectations for your client and it is smart to talk to them about the possibility of multiple sessions.
Scalpa hopes to convey these facts to enlighten those using the ScalpaJect hyaluron pen that they are not doing anything wrong but that these facts stay true for all hyaluron pen treatments. We also hope to shed light on those interested in performing this procedure as a business by having realistic expectations for themselves and for their clients.
