Don’t Try Lip Fillers at Home

Scrolling Pinterest for ways to do things on your own is a great way to pass the time, but plumping lips and DIY don’t go together. 

If you want to change the appearance of your lips, consult a specialist at PMN Health and Wellness. We provide services such as lip augmentation, Botox, and platelet rich plasma therapy in Miami

You may have heard of hyaluronic pens, or hyaluronic acid pens. They have caused a craze online for being known as the at-home lip kit for lip fillers. Lip injections require the use of needles and hyaluronic acid fillers administered by a professional. The at-home kits are mechanical devices (jet injectors) and work by exerting external pressure on the skin tissue, injecting the hyaluronic acid filler into the skin while pushing with pressure – without a needle. The device was originally made for insulin injections and other medications.

There is no data to support the idea that these pens work or are safe to use. Using those devices can end up causing several issues that may need treatment from a lip injection expert at family medicine Miami. Side effects include skin inflammation, abscess formation, discoloration, damage to blood vessels, and the risk of infection. They are only safe when used for their intended purpose – delivering diabetic medication under physician care. 

You should never try lip fillers at home. Always consult a professional. Your results will be much better and much safer. Don’t run the risk of serious and long-term harm to save a few dollars.
