The Rejuvapen is a non-laser, non-surgical treatment that catalyzes collagen and fresh, new tissue production. This remarkable product tightens skin and pores, and helps diminish fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. The overall health and circulation of the skin is significantly improved with Rejuvapen Microneedling.
Rejuvapen utilizes precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the top layers of the skin. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin. The self-repairing property of the skin is a perfect and natural form of skin renewal. Adjustable needle length (from .2 to 2.5mm) allows us to customize your treatments – from skin freshening to scar repairing anywhere on the body. Skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity; fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become firmer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.
After the initial treatment, patients often notice that their skin has a healthy pink glow and that their fine lines have diminished. Skin naturally takes roughly four weeks to synthesize new collagen, but it is not until about four months that patients can see the full effect of Rejuvapen treatments. We suggest patients receive four treatments, spaced at least two weeks apart.
Microneedling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs and face.)
Typically the healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the procedure. Most often, there may be some redness like that of a mild sunburn that lasts from 24 hours to four days. The skin will be pink or red in appearance for 24-48 hours; occasionally, there will be some minor bleeding and bruising. The skin may also feel warm, tight and itchy for a short while. Generally, the inflammatory reaction of the skin is short and significantly fades after a couple of days. Patients with more sensitive skin or older patients may take longer to fully recover.
Patients often notice healthier-looking skin straight away. However, keep in mind that dermal collagen remodeling occurs over time. 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.
Wrinkles, lines, facial volume loss, and uneven pigmentation surface as we age. Rejuvapen Microneedling with PRP is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation option that uses your cells to restore a youthful look. Though there are hundreds of non-surgical options for rejuvenating skin, only a handful of treatments promise to deliver great results without external additives. Our PRP Microneedling solution with Rejuvapen is one such treatment.
Platelets are among the substances found in plasma. They are tiny cell fragments whose main function is to help blood clot if a blood vessel is cut or damaged. Additionally, platelets also promote healing by secreting growth factors, which stimulate cell growth and proliferation.
We separate Platelet Rich Plasma from your blood using a centrifuge. When injected into trouble areas, this plasma naturally promotes rapid skin healing and rejuvenation. Typically, the injection process is preceded by microneedling, which facilitates the plasma application process. In addition, when skin is treated with microneedling, it is also primed for effective topical gel, cream, and serum absorption. This allows for optimal skincare quickly and easily.
At the beginning of the procedure, we will obtain a small amount of blood and separate the PRP for application. Once the PRP is separated, we will apply it to your treatment area using the Rejuvapen. This device utilizes nine precisely spaced microneedles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. Meanwhile, the extract of your own blood that contains platelets (PRP) is placed back into the skin, initiating a localized growth cell response. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, but hydrating gel will be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort. The total session time takes about 30-60 minutes.
Improvements in facial volume and skin texture can be seen immediately after the PRP Microneedling treatment. However, roughly 3-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks are recommended for optimal results. After completing the full line of sessions, skin rejuvenation will be visible after roughly six months. Healing after the procedure depends on individual skin types and concerns. Some redness can be experienced after treatment, but this typically subsides in 2-4 days.
