How does the J-TIP work?
The J-TIP is 10 cm long and weighs about 9 grams.
The medication is released under pressure of compressed gas , once
the trigger is pushed.
The gas pressure pushes the medication through the skin pores, into
the tissue under the skin.
In a fraction of a second, the medication is
pushed out through a microscopic opening. Only the tip of the J-TIP
injector touches the skin.
The harmless gas escapes through a safety valve
and can never come into contact with either the skin, or the medication.
