What is hyaluronic acid?:
Hyaluronic acid is really not an acid at all, it is a natural sugar found in the human body. It is also the most hydrating substance in the whole world and is the main structural element of connective tissue. 1 molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water. Its function is to attract water and keep skin hydrated, plump and youthful. As we age our bodies decrease the amount of Hyaluronic acid and collagen fibers resulting in loss of hydration and elasticity. This causes our skin to sag and wrinkles to form. By adding hyaluronic acid back into the skin we revive collagen and promote a plumper effect.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally created in the human body so it is impossible to have an allergic reaction.
What areas can be treated?:
The hyaluron pen can be used to create volume, shape and lift. The most common treatment areas include Lips, nasolabial lines, marionette lines and 11 lines. This treatment is perfect for creating a naturally plump pouty lip. Its also is great for plumping up shallow wrinkles caused from aging of the skin.
As safe as this procedure is there are a few restrictions to who can receive it. If you are pregnant or nursing you can not receive this service until you have completely stopped breast feeding. If you have sensitivity or have an allergy to lidocaine let the technician know ahead of time. in some cases a topical numbing agent will be used so if you are sensitive to lidocaine you will want to skip this step. If you have a history of oral herpes or cold sores you should be treated with an antiviral medication before the procedure.
