Rejuvapen Microneedling: Collagen Induction Therapy

Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System™

The rejuvapen is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment that causes skin to stimulate collagen production and fresh, new tissue. Skin tightens; wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation significantly diminish; pores become finer; and the overall health and circulation of the skin is improved.

 

BENEFITS:

  • Minimizes Pore Size
  • Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Lifts, Tightens, and Rejuvenates Skin
  • Improves Appearance of Acne Scarring
  • Improves Hyperpigmentation

HOW DOES THE REJUVAPEN WORK?

The instrument itself utilizes what is called medical micro-needling, and in Rejuvapen’s case, 9 micro-needles are used on the skin to create thousands of invisible and virtually painless perforations. By creating these microscopic channels in the epidermis, the body immediately responds by increasing the formation of new tissue to refresh mature skin, as well as releasing of growth factors that promote scar and hyperpigmentation repair and healing. Adjustable needle length allows customized treatments from skin freshening to deep scar repair anywhere on the body.

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 100% natural form of skin renewal. 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.

To achieve maximum results, a series of  at least four treatments spaced a couple weeks apart are recommended.

 

AREAS TO TREAT:

Medical micro-needling can be used on all skin parts of the body (face, neck, décolleté, arms, legs).

 

PRE TREATMENT:

Patients should avoid the following prior to treatment:

  • Use of tanning beds or unprotected sun exposure for 2 weeks
  • Medications containing Retinoid or Vitamin A derivatives for 1 week
  • Use of NSAIDS, such as Ibuprofen for 1 week
  • Use of Aspirin for 2 weeks

Skin infections, i.e. fever blisters, fungal or bacterial, should be fully resolved for 1 week before treatment. If the patient has a history of fever blisters (HSV), we recommend Sitavig RX prior to treatment.

It is also recommended to wait 2 weeks after Botox or Dysport treatment before the Rejuvapen Micro Needling can be done. We also recommend waiting 2 weeks after Filler Injectable before Rejuvapen is done to avoid an inflammatory reaction. If you have had BBL, lasers and laser resurfacing it is recommended to wait 1 month between these treatments mentioned and the micro-needling session for best results.

 

POST TREATMENT EXPERIENCE:

Most patients look as though they have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours. Most patients usually recover within 24 hrs. or less. Your licensed practitioner will prescribe a Rejuvapen approved post-procedure skincare product or recovery kit.

 

AFTERCARE:

Detailed aftercare instructions will be thoroughly discussed and reviewed with each client in-office at Glo.
