Rejuvapen

The very latest non-laser micro needling system designed to produce new collagen in the skin for a plumper, more youthful and glowing look. This treatment is very effective for acne scarring and pigmentation. It is also a wonderful anti-ageing treatment. Rejuvapen will help to even out skin tone and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.The overall skin rejuvenation effect will really improve the health and appearance of tired and dull looking skin.

Skin needling systems such a Dermaroller have been on the market for some years now and have proven very powerful as an active therapy for treating a wide range of deeper skin conditions. Hundreds of micro punctures are created in the skin. The tiny holes are too small to be seen but the trauma to the skin stimulates the body’s own processes to produce, new, healthy and vibrant skin. Rejuvapen is one of the most effective and direct ways of stimulating the production of new collagen to make the skin look more youthful and healthy.

Rejuvapen works very well as on one-off skin rejuvenation treatments, however for most clients we recommend a series of sessions for maximum results. The recovery and skin regeneration process can be aided greatly by adding an LED session to your Rejuvapen treatment.

Treatment time is approximately 60 mins for full face – an anaesthetic is applied prior to treatment.

FAQ's

Can anyone have the treatment?

A: Although the treatment is safe for all skin types, there are certain medical conditions that exclude you from having the treatment. These include; active acne, rosacea, active skin infections, raised keloid scars, eczema, psoriasis, open wounds, non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers. If you suffer from severe cold sores you may wish to take your cold sore medication before each treatment.

How does micro-needling work?

A: The idea is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage. Thousands of minute wounds are created in the skin by highly precise, sterile needles. Immediately after the injury occurs the skin disperses old damaged connective tissue and replaces it with new. Rejuvapen micro-needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro ‘injuries’ in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin and fainter scars/stretchmarks.

What happens during a treatment?

A: The whole procedure is normally completed within 60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Your practitioner will explain the treatment, the risks and benefits and will guide you through a full skin consultation before continuing with the treatment. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic (in the form of a cream) is applied to your skin. This numbs your skin and ensures that you are comfortable during the treatment. After the skin is numbed, your practitioner will gently move the Rejuvapen over your skin to puncture the epidermis layers of the skin and create minute sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds close within 3-5 minutes, but that’s enough to stimulate new collagen disposition which may last for up to a year. You may experience some pain, particularly around the sensitive areas of the face, such as around the eyes.

Does it hurt? What will I expect it to feel like?

A: The anaesthetic cream numbs the skin and makes the treatment more comfortable. You may experience some sensitivity, particularly around the eyes. People who experience the treatment say that it feels like their skin is being rubbed with fine sandpaper, others describe the feeling of an electronic toothbrush being moved across the skin.

What are the side effects? What does my skin look like after treatment?

A: After the procedure your skin will show signs of redness or erythema and will appear similar to moderate sunburn. There may be some slight swelling. The redness and swelling will begin to subside 24-48 hours after the treatment. By day 3 the erythema and swelling subside and the skin takes on a pink colour, there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place. During the first 3 days you will also experience some skin tightness, dryness and mild sensitivity to touch on the areas that have been treated. The dimishes greatly following the treatment and over the next 2-3 days. Your practitioner will recommend rescue skincare to help soothe and protect the skin and enhance results. After treatment we always recommend an SPF.

What is the recommended maintenance regime?

A: Each micro-needling course if different, depending on the client. We suggest that a typical course is 1 session every 6 weeks for 4-6 months. You can expect to continue seeing results for up to 6-8 months after the last treatment as your skins’ matrix grows new collagen.

I have just had fillers and/or Botox, can I start a course of Rejuvapen?

A: No , you must wait at least 28 days after fillers and Botox before you can commence a Rejuvapen session.

Does micro-needling cause hyperpigmentation?

A: No, in normal skin, the micro-needling procedure does not cause hyperpigmentation as long as the skin is protected against UV rays after the treatment and for the first 7-10 days with a suitable sunblock. Over exposure to UV after micro-needling may cause hyperpigmentation, but the risk is small. However, if you have history of hyperpigmentation you must tell your practitioner before commencing a Rejuvapen treatment.

How long after the treatment do I have to wait to wear make-up?

A: You can return to your regular make-up routine after 2-3 days, at which point your skin will appear almost normal. We recommend using a mineral make-up after Rejuvapen. You must continue to use a high factor SPF and any skinacre products specifically recommended by your practitioner.
