Réjuvapen™ Medical Microneedling can help patients who would like to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and acne scars while minimizing pores. Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, Réjuvapen™ creates very small wound patterns to break old collagen chains and trigger the healing process to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. The vibrating hand piece encourages collagen production, allowing the body to begin healing immediately after the procedure with visible results in up to 4 weeks.
How does the Réjuvapen™ treatment work?
The Réjuvapen™ treatment is a microneedling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. This treatment system features nine small needles in a cartridge that create invisible, tiny perforations in the top layer of your skin. This stimulates your skin into a natural healing process, producing collagen and elastin that repairs these tiny perforations and allows your skin to renew and regenerate itself. This medical grade treatment not only will improve the skin's appearance, but can also be used to treat hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
How does Réjuvapen™ treat wrinkles, stretch marks and scars?
Skin needling is based on the skin's ability to heal itself after an injury. Right after the skin encounters any physical damage, it immediately eliminates the damaged tissue to replace it with new, healthy skin. Réjuvapen™ induces small, controlled areas of damage to trigger the production of new collagen without the risks of scarring resulting in smoother and firmer skin.
How long until I see results from Réjuvapen™ and what can I expect after my treatment?
Each patient's healing time varies, though most start to see results in one day to a week after treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice a red appearance in the treatment area and in rare cases minor pin-point bleeding depending on the depth of the needle penetration (The Réjuvapen™ disposable treatment applicator is adjustable). Even a light treatment can enhance the appearance of skin texture and brighten your complexion.
How is Réjuvapen™ Microneedling different from other techniques?
This type of device is rolled across the treatment area. The nature of the rolling movement creates unnecessary epidermal damage as the needles pull the tissue as they leave the skin. Réjuvapen™'s unique applicator is completely vertical, minimizing unnecessary injury to the treatment area. The carefully controlled, disposable needle applicator only moves in an up-and-down motion, meaning less recovery time and a more comfortable experience for patients.
The size and design of Réjuvapen™ also allows it to be used in tight or round areas where a dermal roller could not fit like the crease of the nose, along the upper lip and across the chin. Réjuvapen™ works well on any skin tone and type--meaning it can be a safe alternative to lasers for those with darker skin tones.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Depending on the depth of treatment, numbing creams can be used to increase patient comfort. Réjuvapen™'s applicator can be adjusted to a length of .5mm to 2.5mm based on your skin condition. Those undergoing treatments with a shorter needle will only feel a tickling sensation, while those undergoing treatment with the full 2.5mm are offered numbing creams as an option for treatment.
How many Réjuvapen™ treatments will I need?
Again, everyone is different, and will need different levels as well as numbers of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may need multiple sessions. Nonetheless these will all be discussed and decide upon during your consultation.
