Here for a Gorgeous, Healthy You
WHAT IS REJUVAPEN?
Rejuvapen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision micro-needling device. This facial will stimulate collagen production and improves fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, decreases pore size, scars and the overall condition of the skin
Rejuvapen can treat:
Firming and tightening most body areas
Skin tightening and rejuvenation
HOW DOES REJUVAPEN WORK?
Rejuvapen uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin. While thousands of micro perforations are created by your provider on the skin the skin will shift to naturally repair itself. this causes your skin to start reproducing collagen and elastin in order to repair the micro perforation.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
Before the procedure we will numb you using a topical numbing cream for comfort. You also have the option to use Pro-Nox for this treatment. Before your appointment, please be sure to follow the before care instructions that your provider will give you. This includes not using Accutane for the past 6 months. Also, no Retin-A products can be used 24 hours prior to treatment. In addition, no autoimmune therapies or products 24 hours prior to treatment.
We also ask that you avoid unprotected sun exposure for two weeks prior to treatment. We can’t treat sunburned skin. Also, if you are prone to cold sores, start your medication two days prior to your Rejuvapen treatment. Finally, on day of your treatment, please arrive with freshly cleaned skin.
Options to add PRP or PRFM
You have the option to enhance your treatment with PRP platelet rich plasma or PRFM. PRP is a procedure where blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets aka liquid gold. Once separated, the PRP is injected into your face via micro needling or injection which will stimulate new collagen production. This procedure can fill in wrinkles or plump up hollow cheeks. Because both PRP and PRFM are derived from your own blood cells, there’s little to no risk of allergic reaction
