We now offer two types of Micro-Needling, a technique in which multiple, tiny micro-needles are vertically applied to the skin. This controlled “damage” to the skin harnesses the body’s own injury response to rejuvenate and repair the skin through the proven science of collagen stimulation. There are numerous benefits received through use of the micro-needling because new collagen production can reverse years of sun damage, address acne scars, hyperpigmentation as well as address and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. Immediately following the treatment you will notice a healthy pink glow. On average, patients are pink for 1-3 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
Micro-needling is safe and effective and can be used to:
- Stimulate collagen production, which promotes rejuvenation
- Induce skin tightening, improve wrinkles and fine lines
- Improve acne scars and surgical scars
- Increase absorption of active ingredients
SkinPen® is a minimally invasive, in-office, skin rejuvenation treatment that improves fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and other conditions by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decolletage, arms, hand, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes SkinPen especially helpful when addressing acne scars on the back and stretch marks on the body.
We can dramatically improve acne scars, hyper pigmentation, minimize pores, soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve overall tone and texture, brighten and tighten the skin, with virtually no risk or down time for the patient. The philosophy in our practice has always been to perform treatments that increase and strengthen the dermal barrier vs. compromising it with a host of ablative treatments. The SkinPen is our number one go to treatment to accomplish this goal.
There are many benefits with using the SkinPen including reversing years of sun damage, addressing scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. You will look and feel healthier with little to no down time! This procedure is extremely versatile and can be used on any part of the body and on all skin types.
The rejuvapen is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment that causes skin to stimulate collagen production and fresh, new tissue. Skin tightens; wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation significantly diminish; pores become finer; and the overall health and circulation of the skin is improved.
How Does Rejuvapen Work?
The instrument itself utilizes what is called medical micro-needling, and in Rejuvapen’s case, 9 micro-needles are used on the skin to create thousands of invisible and virtually painless perforations. By creating these microscopic channels in the epidermis, the body immediately responds by increasing the formation of new tissue to refresh mature skin, as well as releasing of growth factors that promote scar and hyperpigmentation repair and healing. Adjustable needle length from .2 to 2.5mm allows customized treatments from skin freshening to deep scar repair anywhere on the body.
After the initial treatment, patients often notice that their skin has a healthy pink glow and that fine lines are diminished. Skin naturally takes roughly four weeks to synthesize new collagen, but it is not until about four months that patients can see the full effect of Rejuvapen treatments. It is suggested that patients receive four treatments, spaced at least two weeks apart.
