WHAT IS REJUVAPEN?
Rejuvapen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision micro-needling device. It helps your skin become firmer and regain its elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated, and the overall condition of your skin improves.

HOW DOES REJUVAPEN WORK?
Rejuvapen uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin. The sleek design allows your provider to control the speed and depth. Thousands of micro-perforations are created on the skin. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. This self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. Rejuvapen’s advantage over other treatments is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also enhances the absorption of topicals into the skin.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
Before the Procedure:
We recommend you use a numbing cream for this procedure. Due to changes in regulations, we are no longer able to provide you with the cream. However, we can call in a prescription for you before your appointment. Please let our receptionist know when you schedule that you will need this prescription. You also have the option to use Pro-Nox for this treatment.
Before your appointment, please be sure to follow the before care instructions that your provider will give you. This includes not using Accutane for the past 6 months. Also, no Retin-A products can be used 24 hours prior to treatment. In addition, no autoimmune therapies or products 24 hours prior to treatment.
We also ask that you avoid unprotected sun exposure for two weeks prior to treatment. We can’t treat sunburned skin. Also, if you are prone to cold sores, start your medication two days prior to your Rejuvapen treatment. Finally, on day of your treatment, please arrive with freshly cleaned skin.
When you come in for your appointment, you can either bring your prescription numbing cream or use Pro-Nox. Adjustable needle length from .2 to 2.5mm allows customized treatments from skin freshening to deep scar repair anywhere on the body.
The treatment can be uncomfortable and some patients have described it as feeling like sandpaper going over the skin. Some areas of treatment may be more sensitive than others, which can lead to some discomfort.
Immediately after treatment you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn. Your skin may feel tighter and warmer than usual. This will usually subside within 24-36 hours. You may see slight redness after that period. Your normal skin care regimen can resume after 24-48 hours.
Be sure to follow the instructions from your provider for after care.
ENHANCE YOUR TREATMENT WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
This system uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) technology to help boost collagen. PRP is a procedure where blood is drawn from the arm and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. Once separated, the PRP is injected into your face with the hope of stimulating new collagen production. This procedure can fill in wrinkles or plump up hollow cheeks.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
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.
