What is Rejuvapen Micro Needling?

Rejuvapen is an amazing breakthrough in skin care that yields amazing results quickly with almost no downtime. It is becoming more increasingly popular among patients and for various reasons.  It is quick, no real down time, and note worthy results.   So, what is this new micro-needling treatment, and how does it work?   Rejuvapen’s nine precisely spaced micro needles create tiny perforations in the top two layers of the skin. The skin shifts its repair mechanism into high gear, producing collagen and elastin to mend these micro-perforations. This is a 100% natural form of skin renewal, repairing from the inside out. Your skin will be firmer and regain its elasticity, so fine lines and wrinkles become visibly reduced, pores are smaller, and creates younger looking skin. 

Skin becomes firmer, regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores are smaller and circulation is stimulated so the overall condition and appearance of the skin improves. Rejuvapen addresses fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and skin texture by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation creating healthier skin. You can treat the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks, around the mouth, neck and chest are treated most often, but Rejuvapen can be used on problem areas like surgical scarring to reduce prominence.

The treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment area. Typically the patient will come into the spa approximately 30 minutes early to apply numbing cream.  Most patients look as though they have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warmer and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside in 1-2 hours. Most patients recover in less than 24 hours, with minimal discomfort.

The initial reaction is that our patients love the treatment. They can immediately feel improvement and a firmness to their skin. Most patients will notice visible results after the first treatment, and results improve after subsequent treatments. It is recommended to have 3-4 treatments for optimal results.

Don’t let the word “Peel” Frighten you away…

What is a “peel”? The word “peel” may seem a bit intimidating or scary to those people who have yet to experience the treatment and witness the amazing benefits. Don’t let the name scare you away… once you try a facial peel you may be hooked for life. Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or even scarred. If you desire smoother and younger looking skin, consider a chemical peel, which smooths the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.

A chemical peel, is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Although chemical peels are used most commonly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. Clients seek chemical peels to improve acne scars, aging spots, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, rough patches of skin, scarring or even sun damage. Following a facial peel, most people leave with beautiful glowing skin, however occasionally there may be a slight redness that will quickly dissipate.

Now that you know what a facial peel can do for your skin, it’s important to understand what they cannot do. They do not treat deep facial lines, in that case you may want to consider facial injectables that boost collagen production or CoolTouch CT3 Plus treatments that boost collagen production. Peels do not assist with broken capillaries, if you experience an issue with that you would consider Telangitron. For deep scarring or burns you could consider scar revision, CO2 Deep Fractional Laser treatments or dermabrasion – all of which you would be handled by Dr Schenden and not in the Spa.

Chemical peels do wonders for the skin, so don’t let the word “peel” frighten you away; instead, consider scheduling an appointment for a skin evaluation to learn about all of the chemical peels we offer at the spa (Salicylic, Jessner, Glycolic, Mybody, Lactic, Microdermabrasion, Probiotic, Dermaplaning).
