The concept of micro-needling has been around for a while and is based upon the skin’s ability to naturally repair itself when injured. Immediately following an injury, our skin begins the process of dissolving tissue damage and replacing it with new cells. Micro-needling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically trigger new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. The micro-injuries also create channels that allow product to penetrate deeper into the skin resulting in better product efficacy.
Rejuvapen is a medical grade, state of the art Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System™available through skincare professionals only. Rejuvapen is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation, creating healthier skin, and can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, skin texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. The repair process of your skin is accelerated by Rejuvapen through the creation of microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in better product outcomes.
Who is a candidate?
One of the most exciting things about micro-needling is that it can be used on all types of skin and can be used to address a wide range of issues.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Micro-needling can be used on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
What are the benefits?
There are numerous benefits received through micro-needling because new collagen production can reverse the effects of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyper-pigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin reducing appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.
What does it feel like?
The unique design of Rejuvapen allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment very comfortable for most patients.
What is the downtime?
The total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of repair process required. On average, patients have some slight redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.
When will patients see results?
Many patients notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Keep in mind dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time it is not realistic to expect damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time to disappear immediately. You may not see the final result until up to 3-6 months following your final session.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of treatments required will be determined by each individuals treatment goals and the health of your skin. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 4 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals.
