The Treatment: The Rejuvapen treatment is a micro-needling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. Since micro-needling enhances the production of collagen the treatment can reverse the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced and an overall healthier appearance of the skin will occur.
Areas to Treat:
Medical Microneedling can be used on all skin parts of the body. After care treatment:
Use tepid water to cleanse the face for the first 48 hours following treatment and drying the area gently without rubbing. Always use clean hands to avoid infection. Avoid applying makeup products for the first 12 hours following treatment. Your aesthetician will advise you on use of appropriate, gentle skincare following the treatment. It can take between 6-8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue to evolve over the ensuing months providing a gradual improvement. Who is a candidate?

When will you see results?
Patients may notice healthier looking skin right away. However, keep in mind that dermal collagen remodeling occurs over time and it would not be realistic to expect damage that has happened to the skin over a long period of time to disappear right away.
We suggest a series of 4-6 sessions depending on what the treatment is for. Individuals may not see final results until 3-6 months following the last appointment.
How is the Rejuvapen microneedling procedure performed?
When you arrive in the office, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment site for about 30 minutes.
The numbing cream is removed.
A super hydrating hyaluronic acid based lubricant is applied to the treatment site. A stem cell serum can be used instead of hyaluronic acid to promote more collagen production.
The Rejuvapen Micronnedling is moved over the treatment site in specific patterns--adjustments being made to needle depth based on the specific treatment protocol being used.
After the procedure, LED lights are applied. The lights will come down the skin and enhance your outcome.
A cream or ointment is then applied to your skin and you are taught how to take care of your skin during the 5 day healing period.
Healing from a Rejuvapen microneedling procedure.
The pace of your individual healing depends on your own immune system, the areas treated, and whether the treatment was mild or more intense.
Right after the procedure: mild to moderate swelling, stinging, burning, redness, some pinpoint bleeding.
First 24 hours: Lessening of the redness, tiny red dots, skin feels slightly dry, and itchy.
Days 1-2: Further lessening of the redness and red dots, minor flaking, less itching, and dryness.
Days 3-4: Mild pinkness and some dry skin.
Day 5 and after: Full recover with normal skin.
A special emollient is used after the procedure, and needs to be applied by the patient at home during the healing process. Some patients use additional serums to boost their results.
