The J-Tip Needle-Free Injector is a prescription device used to deliver anesthetics into the skin. Instead of a needle, it uses pressurized gas to inject anesthetics into the skin.
For hair removal clients who have a phobia of needles and cannot tolerate pain from hair removal, this can be an alternative, though most consumers prefer topical anesthetics.
When the JTip was first introduced, there was some confusion over who as allowed to use the device. The American Electrology Association made an inquiry with the US Food and Drug Administration, who confirmed the device is for prescription use only, meaning that only those authorized to prescribe medicine may use the device due to the risks in hair removal pain management.
