Needle-free lip fillers are a popular choice for those looking to achieve fuller, more voluminous lips. The results of these treatments typically last between 3 to 9 months, depending on how quickly the body metabolizes the filler. It is recommended to schedule appointments in “layers”, with the first appointment providing a foundation and the second appointment 3 weeks later to build the perfect lips. After that, a touch up every 12-16 weeks is recommended to maintain fullness.
However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises against using needleless devices for hyaluronic acid (HA) injection or other facial and lip fillers, as they can cause serious injury and permanent damage to the skin, lips, or eyes. The FDA has not evaluated the safety and efficacy of needleless devices for injecting any dermal fillers, and has not approved their marketing for use with facial and lip fillers. Substances loaded in pens are normally sold separately, and products sold directly to consumers online may be contaminated with chemicals or infectious organisms. Complications may require immediate medical attention from a licensed healthcare provider, and some complications may not be reversible.
In comparison to traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, results from needleless devices are not as long-lasting. Typically, depending on how quickly the body metabolizes hyaluronic acid infusion, Hyaluron lip filler treatments last about 3 to 6 months. On the other hand, injection offers faster results than a hyaluronic pencil, so you can see an instant boost on your lips and lasts up to 9 months. If you're interested in trying needleless lip filler, it is important to ensure that it is in the hands of a medical professional who will prioritize your health and goals above all else.
If there are no complications, recovery time is quite short, with less general swelling and bruising than with traditional lip injections. The FDA continues to evaluate the commercialization of needleless devices for injecting fillers and will take appropriate action if necessary. If you think you had a problem with needleless devices for injecting fillers, FDA encourages you to report the problem through the MedWatch Voluntary Notification Form.
