Questions and Answers about réjuvapen®
Your skin has the power to heal itself and create a more youthful appearance through the use of the réjuvapen® Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System. Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston Esthetician Ashley Davis answers some of the most frequently asked questions about this skin treatment.
What is réjuvapen®?
The réjuvapen® treatment is a medical grade Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System. The treatment stimulates the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin to improve:
- Texture and Tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pore Size
- Appearance of stretch marks
- Scars-including acne scarring
How does réjuvapen® do this?
The réjuvapen® System uses a disposable cartridge with 9 micro sized needles which create micro channels in the epidermis to stimulate and increase the rate of healing in the skin. This not only triggers collagen and elastin to be produced at a more rapid pace but also allows for products to penetrate the skin more effectively.
What areas can be treated?
The réjuvapen® treatment is customizable to perform treatment on various areas of the body. It is not just limited to the face! The neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back can be treated also.
What is the actual treatment like?
Treatment time may vary depending on the size of the area(s) being treated and what the targeted goal of correction you are being treated for. Most patients only experience minimal discomfort for a brief time during the treatment.
What is the downtime?
There is very little downtime with the réjuvapen® micro-needling treatment. Initial redness from the treatment is similar to that of a sunburn for the first day resolving to a residual pinkness on day 2 for most patients. Makeup can be worn 24 hours post treatment.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments needed vary person to person and their specific needs. However, it is recommended for most to have a series of treatments for optimal results.
