Microneedling with Rejuvapen and our new 36-needle pen
Micro Needling is an alternative to laser and fractional resurfacing solutions to rejuvenate skin. It is highly popular for targeting uneven skin tone, damaged skin and under the eye areas, unsafe for laser. Skin tones with higher concentrations of melanin are excellent candidates for microneedling, as there is no risk to the skin. We use the Rejuvapen system because of its ability to easily tailor the depth of the treatment according to skin area and the patient’s needs, and we recently added a finer, 36-needle pen option.
Why we Love Micro Needling
Micro needling is a minimally invasive procedure using fine needles to create new collagen production. We love it because it shuttles specific anti-oxidants and nutrients to lower layers of skin where it is needed. This has been one of the biggest challenges in the non-invasive cosmetic industry.We use Rejuvapen’s recommended growth factor serum from AQ. Growth factors are proteins that promote the growth, organization and maintenance of cells and tissues found in healthy, young skin plus antioxidant vitamins that stimulate collagen production. In addition to the standard 12-needle pen we offer a 36-needle option.There is less down time than with lasers and IPL. A post-treatment kit is specially designed to care for skin after a micro needling session.
What Micro Needling Does Best
A series of microneedling can effectively reduce acne scars, tighten pores, and is excellent for smoothing fine lines like smokers’ lines along the lip. Best of all, the longer term results are an overall improvement to the skins’ appearance, because it stimulates the body’s collagen production, which dimishes with age. The plant-based human growth factor nutrients and anti-oxidants can work more effectively as they reach deeper under the upper layers of skin.
I just wanted to send along a before and after picture, after one session of needling. It’s still a bit red but I already notice a difference. Yay! See you soon for a second treatment.
