The Rejuvapen treatment is a micro-needling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. This medical grade treatment not only will improve the skins appearance, but also can be used to treat hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles.
There are many wonderful benefits that can result from the treatment. Since micro-needling enhances the production of collagen the treatment can reverse the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced, and an overall healthier appearance of the skin will occur.
How long Does It Last?

What to expect in my treatment?
You will have topical numbing applied prior to treatment. Many experience a feeling of vibration due to the device used to perform. It is not considered an uncomfortable treatment.
Typically, the healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the procedure. Most commonly there may be some redness that resembles mild sunburn. This may last for 2-4 days. Some patients may have the redness dissipate within 24 hours. Depending on the intensity of treatment there may be slight swelling that may occur. This swelling will dissipate in the first 24 hours.
