UK aesthetic distributor The Smart Group has released a new device that may provide a solution to patients with a needle phobia.
According to AnxietyUK, up to 10% of the population have a fear of various types of injections, which may prevent many patients to seek aesthetic treatments.
The Med-Jet is a hand-held device that acts as a new, pain free delivery system for treatments such as botulinum toxin, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), mesotherapy and dermal fillers, which otherwise require the use of needles or cannulas.
According to The Smart Group, the Med-Jet provides a fast, accurate delivery of product through the use of a patented low pressure delivery system. The volume of product and pressures are adjustable, enabling practitioners to target either intradermally, subcutaneously and intramuscularly.
Aesthetic practitioner Dr Vincent Wong has been using the device on his patients. He said, “The Med-Jet needle free injector is revolutionary. I am amazed by how easy it is to administer traditional injectables such as botulinum toxin and dermal fillers without using any needles. And my patients love that it is pain-free too!”
Kevin Eley, regional director the Smart Group, said, “Med-Jet is probably the most impressive product I have seen in the last 10 years in aesthetics. Whether it be for the delivery of anaesthetic for painful treatments or for pain free mesotherapy, toxin, filler or PRP application, it will open up new treatment avenues and market opportunities for practitioners because they can now treat patients who are needle phobic.”
