Title: NEEDLE-FREE SKIN PIERCING SYSTEM AND METHOD
Abstract:
A system for needle-free skin piercing comprises a removable head and a pressurizing system. The head comprises a body comprising a channel which comprises a distal opening at a distal end and a proximal opening at a proximal end. A filling port is for at least partially filling the channel with a liquid through a fill opening separate from the distal and proximal openings. The pressurizing apparatus is for applying pressure to the proximal 5 opening thereby to expel under pressure the liquid in the channel from the distal opening. The liquid may be used to pierce the skin for drawing blood or it may be used to administer a dose of a biological agent beneath the skin surface or it may be used for skin rejuvenation.
