Rejuvapen: Micro-Needling

The Rejuvapen is a fractional micro-needling device with a unique spring-loaded disposable needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage. The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. It is as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy and IPL, but has a significantly shorter recovery period.

Rejuvapen offers exceptional results, is easy to use and has better precision and control than leading alternatives, all at a fraction of the cost. The method of action is to weaken the bonds of how a scar has previously healed allow the body to re-do the scar when surgical excision is not desired nor indicated. Rejuvapen is great for many types of scars including acne scars, web scars and even thickened hypertrophic scar. New fibrin and collagen is formed as you heal, resulting helping the body heal better.

Laser is designed to treat imperfections of the skin. Whether you are experiencing scars, wrinkles, loose skin, imperfections in texture, color or tone, Lasers use amplified light to treat many of the problems we experience with skin as we age. The heat that is generated from a laser can smooth wrinkles and tighten the skin. CO2 is the strongest of all lasers and is limited to use on the face. Lasers directed at the skin soften the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles to completely eliminate fine lines, and drastically improve the appearance of scars. CO2 is the best laser for facial skin and CO2 repair is the best laser for use on the body.

The hydration of an injury is a key to healing skin.  The combined action of:

  1. Sealing a wound maintains hydration and creates a barrier to infection.
  2. Dilating vessels increase the ability of the body to deliver nutrients to the injured skin and increases hydration of the skin promoting healing
  3. Hydrophilic Agents that pull water and nutrients out of the vessels fosters healing
  4. Anti-inflammatory agents counteract the negative factors that may work against healing by possibly decreasing fibrin (scar) and increasing cellular In-growth (skin).
  5. Anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agents help prevent colonization and infection by micro-organisms
