Rejuvapen Microneedling

As we grow old, our skin ages and becomes loose and less elastic, resulting in wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin appear dull. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a safe, comfortable, and effective alternative to laser resurfacing. It is a great way to stimulates new collagen, reduce fine lines and acne scars, and even out skin tone and texture. This treatment is indicated for all skin types, and when performed in a series, which is recommended, provides great results with little to no downtime.

Microneedling treatment is a simple procedure that uses a hand-held device with tiny, shallow needles to puncture your outer layer of skin to create a controlled skin injury. This damage to the skin will stimulate your body to produce new collagen and elastin. The freshly produced collagen will rejuvenate your skin by filling in fine lines, resulting in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by reducing the wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Microneedling can also be used on many other body parts, such as arms, legs, neck, back, hands and abdomen.

Prior to treatment, numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes. The treatment is customized to the area being treated. We use a Rejuvapen NXT microneedling pen, which provides a precisely controlled stamping method to reach a set depth in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis. The automatic vibrating function increases the effectiveness of treatment by increasing absorption of products while reducing pain and discomfort.

One microneedling session generally takes 30 minutes. At first, your skin will appear a little bit red, similar to a light sunburn, but your skin will return to normal in a couple of days. The natural growth of collagen takes place over the next weeks and months.

For wrinkles or stretch marks, depending on the severity, you may need 4 to 8 to achieve optimal results. Treatments are generally spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After a treatment, your skin may appear somewhat dry and/or pink, which will typically subside within a few days to one week.

Regardless of your skin color or type is, microneedling is the best treatment you can have to have to make your skin look fresher and younger.
