Rejuvapen® Microneedling Introduction
Rejuvapen® Micro Needling stimulates the skins natural healing which increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The normal healing response begins the moment of tissue injury by the perforations of the micro needles.
Micro Needling treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scarring, burns, stretch marks, and firms and tightens the skin. There is minimal downtime. Rejuvapen® Micro Needling is done in the office by a trained professional and requires topical numbing cream 30 minutes before treatment.
How Does Rejuvapen® Microneedling Work?
How does a little pen has such a profound impact on wrinkles, scars and stretch marks?
The concept is actually simple. Dr. Tuesday uses the Rejuvapen® Microneedling tool, to create microscopic pricks on the problematic area. The tiny needles on the pen make invisible perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. Your body registers that it’s been injured and starts to heal itself. Collagen and elastin are rushed to the area, where they then rejuvenate your skin.
After the procedure, your skin will likely feel warm and tight, and it may appear as though you have a moderate sunburn. These side effects usually subside within a matter of hours, and most people see their skin return to normal in 24 hours. Dr. Tuesday may be able to recommend a serum or other skin treatment to minimize any discomfort after your appointment.
Rejuvapen® Microneedling Before and After
What to Expect
During the session, Rejuvapen® Microneedling is slightly uncomfortable. Dr. Tuesday will provide her patients with a topical numbing cream that should be applied 20 minutes prior to the appointment.
The treatment itself feels a bit like sandpaper going over the skin. Some scarred areas can be more sensitive than other, so parts of the session will be less comfortable than others.
After the treatment, patients generally don’t feel any discomfort, although the treated area is likely to be sensitive. Dr. Tuesday will instruct patients to using mild, gentle products and sunscreen after the treatment. Makeup can be applied the next day.
Patients should expect to be very red the day of and the day after a Rejuvapen® Microneedling treatment. Dr. Tuesday recommends scheduling two days of downtime and staying out of the sun. For example, you can schedule your appointment on Friday and use the weekend as downtime. The redness is typically gone in 48 hours.
