Rejuvapen is the newest treatment to rock the world of skin-related cosmetic technologies. We’re proud to offer the Rejuvapen Microneedling Technology at SkinRenew Laser Medical Center! Rejuvapen is a collagen induction therapy system that offers advanced microneedling technology. The results of collagen induction therapy are truly remarkable considering it is a non-surgical, non-laser, non-peel treatment. Microneedling is the first step in the Rejuvapen’s induction therapy system, which can reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, sun damage, and skin pigmentation.
Microneedling is the process of penetrating the skin with tiny needles. Collagen induction therapy systems create hundreds of miniscule punctures in the skin, prompting the skin to begin its natural healing process. As the skin attempts to heal itself, it produces collagen and elastin to bolster the structures of the affected cells. Your body also delivers oxygen-rich blood cells to the area, increasing circulation to the affected skin. The treated areas gradually become smoother, firmer, and more radiant as the healing process takes place. Induction therapy accomplishes what many other cosmetic procedures cannot all through the use of your body’s own healing process! Collagen induction therapy is one of SkinRenew’s specialties.
This process of using the skin’s own natural healing mechanisms to reduce the appearance of blemishes and imperfections is called collagen induction therapy. The great beneficial use of needles in collagen induction therapy was discovered accidentally in 1996. Dr. Andre Camirand noticed that patients for which he had tattooed skin-color pigment onto facial scars had significantly reduced appearance of those scars, even after the pigment had long since faded away. He described his experiences in a paper, and, through subsequent research from other doctors, the first microneedle systems were developed through the mid-2000s.
From the simple single-needle tattoo gun, microneedling technology has advanced a very long way, culminating in the recent introduction of the Rejuvapen induction therapy system into SkinRenew’s line of cosmetic procedures. Rejuvapen uses 9 tiny needles that have extremely high degrees of accuracy. The needles can also be adjusted to differing depths, allowing for its use on all types of skin, from very thick to very thin. Because of this, microneedling techniques can be used on a much wider variety of patients and a much wider variety of areas on the body. No matter where your imperfections are on your body, collagen induction therapy systems can be used to reduce their appearance.
Collagen induction therapy is a relatively low cost treatment that offers great results and short recovery times. Typically, patients can begin to see results in the first 3-4 weeks following the procedure. This is the amount of time that the skin naturally takes to synthesize new collagen. However, as time goes by, the skin heals more completely and regains more of its youthful texture, firmness, and smoothness. After about 3-4 months, patients will be able to see the full effects of the Rejuvapen’s revolutionary treatment. Generally, patients receive a few microneedling treatments spaced a couple weeks apart to achieve the best results.
