Rejuvapen is an automated micro-needling device that is used to rejuvenate skin by stimulating collagen production. Rejuvapen can be used to treat a number of skin conditions including:
- Acne scarring and other scars
- Reduce appearance of large pores
- Minimize stretch marks
- Tighten skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines
Rejuvapen can be used anywhere on the body. The most popular treatment area is the face, used to treat acne scars, pigmentation problems and wrinkles. Rejuvepen can also be used on other parts of the body to treat stretch marks, burn wounds and surgical scars.
A micro fractional collagen stimulation system – called micro-needling.
The Rejuvapen utilizes 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. Hundreds of tiny channels are created through the top layer of skin which facilitate the passage and absorption of your skin care product, to maximize its absorption. It gently exfoliates excess skin cells, which contribute to scaring or premature aging, wrinkles, and stretch marks. The automatic therapy system stimulates blood flow to the surface, delivers product and stimulates collagen re-growth.
This breakthrough system promises to rejuvenate the skin more efficiently than others.One of the most popular growth factors that is combined with this technique is Platelet Rich Plasma. The makers of Selphyll have developed a technique that separates PRP from your own sample of blood. This is injected into the site of injury, where PRP promotes healing processes. As a result, the skin naturally produces collagen and elastin to repair these perforations.
Rejuvapen involves no surgery or anesthesia, minimal downtime and quick results (results may vary). It is a versatile treatment that can be performed on the face, neck, hands or chest and offer a variety of benefits which include:
- Tighter skin
- Minimize pore size
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve scars, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation
- Reduces appearance of stretch marks
Any man or women looking to treat acne scarring, sun damage, stretch marks, or fine lines/wrinkles is a great candidate.
What is micro-needling?
A needling procedure that perforates tiny channels into the skin which facilitates the passage and absorption of product, whether it be PRP or HA. What’s the difference? PRP is plasma rich platelets which are centrifuged out by a sample of blood. HA is hyaluronic acid which is a heavy duty moisturizer that helps plump and hydrate the skin.
How does it work?
The product is applied to your skin prior to the needling process. Whichever product is used is then quickly absorbed into the channels. The skin then quickly tries to repair itself producing more collagen and elastin.
Benefits of micro-needling?
Tighter skin, Minimize pore size, Smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improves scars, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, reduces appearance of stretch marks.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
A man or woman who are looking to reduce fine lines/wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, sun damage
Who is NOT a good candidate?
- Those who have had radiation within 12 months, those who are diabetic and those who keloid very easily
- If patient has an acne outbreak – must wait until outbreak has resolved to do procedure
- If patient has a history of cold sores – must be on an antiviral medication for 2 weeks prior. Why? Because this procedure will stimulate an outbreak
