As everyone ages, so does the condition of their external appearances – especially in the facial areas. Skin that was once flawless tends to give way to fine lines, age sports, wrinkles, crow’s feet, stretch marks, scars and even enlarged pores. While there may already be some forms of treatment such as dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing that are available, an alternative treatment in the form of the Rejuvapen is now available as well. Micro-needling also has less downtime than traditional laser treatments without the risk of pigmentation to the skin.
Micro Needling Technology
The Rejuvapen device consists of multiple micro needling devices that form what is referred to as a Fractional Collagen Induction Therapy System that creates micro-perforations in the epidermis and the outermost layer of the dermis. In other words, it is able to assist with the re-generation of new skin cells, which not only makes it firmer; it also regains most of its original elasticity, making it look more youthful and rejuvenated again. An added advantage of having this particular form of treatment performed is that the end results always look as natural as possible.
Enhancing the Skin’s Self-Repair Abilities
As the micro needles on the Rejuvapen device create the micro-perforations on the facial area, it encourages the skin to start repairing itself naturally by producing elastin and collagen. Over time, this will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, minimize the size of previously enlarged pores, lift and tighten the skin and vastly improve the appearance of any scarring that may be present as a result of acne or other conditions. Patients with skin pigmentation or age spots can also benefit vastly from using this type of treatment.
Minor Side Effects
After having this treatment performed, patients will need to stay out of the sun for a few days until skin redness and sensitivity have diminished, as failure to do so could result in new scarring from developing. Most patients will also look as though they have experienced a mild case of sunburn for a few hours afterwards and the skin will feel a little tighter and warmer than usual during the recovery period as well. However, this is normal and in most cases, will subside after a maximum of 24 hours.
Long Lasting Results
Many other skin rejuvenation treatments and procedures do not have long lasting effects, which means that they have to be performed on a regular basis. However, the Rejuvapen procedure is completely different in that the end results usually last for many years afterwards. This not only saves the patient a lot of time in that only one treatment needs to be performed; it will potentially save a lot of money on cosmetic treatments in the long term as well.
Patients who have become disillusioned by the lack of results with other skin rejuvenation procedures should not hesitate to opt for the Rejuvapen micro-needling procedure instead. Anyone who is interested in obtaining more information about the procedure or who would like to have it performed is free to schedule a consultation with our professional surgeon as soon as possible.
