Needle-free dermal filler devices used for cosmetic skin treatments are not authorized in Canada and may pose health risks

OTTAWA – Health Canada is advising Canadians that needle-free dermal filler devices that are promoted for cosmetic skin treatments—such as reducing wrinkles and increasing lip volume—may pose health risks. These small handheld medical devices used to deposit hyaluronic acid or other dermal fillers under the skin are also known as hyaluron pens, hyapens, fog injection devices, SERA pens, and nebulizer injector guns.
