Micro-needling is a treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. This medical grade treatment not only will improve the skin’s appearance, but also can be used to treat hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
Rejuvapen micro-needling system uses precisely spaced micro-needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the top layer of skin. There are several benefits that can result from the treatment. A series of micro-needling treatments can enhance the production of collagen, reverse the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced and an overall healthier appearance of the skin will occur.
What is the downtime?
Typically the healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the procedure. In most cases there may be some redness that resembles mild sunburn, as well as mild peeling. This may last for 2-4 days. Some patients may have the redness dissipate within 24 hours.
Who is a candidate?
Micro-needling is a treatment that can be used on all skin types and can be used to treat acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.
When will patients see results?
Patients may notice healthier looking skin right away. However, keep in mind that dermal collagen remodeling occurs over time and it would not be realistic to expect damage that has happened to the skin over a long period of time to disappear right away. We suggest a series of 4-6 sessions, every 6 weeks depending on what the treatment is for. Individuals may not see final results until 3-6 months following the last appointment.
