The Dermojet (AKRA Dermojet, Pau, France) is a medical device commonly used for intradermal injection of liquid medications without the use of a needle.1 It is painless and requires no physical contact with the patient's skin. Common indications for Dermojet use include alopecia areata, cystic acne, and keloids.2 Considered to be safe for intradermal delivery of drugs, it has been used also for periocular injections.
