Microneedling skin rejuvenation is an ideal treatment for patients interested in improving the health, appearance, and texture of their skin naturally. Skin Deep Medical Spa assists your body by stimulating its own natural healing response with Rejuvapen™, causing it to produce new skin cells. If you are interested in microneedling skin rejuvenation, contact us today to schedule a consultation at our Glenview or Highland Park offices.
Who Is It For?
Microneedling skin rejuvenation has a wide range of applications. It can be used to treat anything from scarring to large pores, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling is great for people of all skin types, even those with sensitive skin, and can also be used on any area of the body. Ideal candidates are those beginning to see the effects of aging and scarring in specific areas and are interested in avoiding surgical treatments.
How Does It Work?
Microneedling skin rejuvenation makes use of your body’s natural healing process using Rejuvapen™. This process is enhanced by the use of topical products absorbed into the targeted area during the treatment through the microscopic channels created. Elastin and collagen production is increased as new skin cells are created. These proteins are what gives our skin its strength, firmness, and elasticity, which are necessary ingredients for a healthy complexion. These elements naturally decrease as we age, requiring procedures like microneedling to stimulate production again.
What is Rejuvapen™?
Rejuvapen™ is a treatment that uses an advanced microneedling device used to encourage the skin’s natural ability to create healthier skin. The repair process creates microscopic channels that allow topical skin care products to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin, stimulating the healing process further. The production of new collagen and elastin have the ability to reverse sun damage, reduce the look of acne scars and revitalize the skin.
How Long Does It Take?
During your appointment, a member of our experienced staff will use Rejuvapen™ to create microscopic channels on the skin in the desired treatment area. Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes but can vary based on the targeted area. After your appointment, you can immediately return to your daily activities, although strenuous activity should be avoided for 24 hours.
The number of treatments you need is determined by the health of your skin and the issue you are looking to address, but on average, patients receive three or four treatments with each one occurring about one month apart. Because we stimulate the body to perform its own healing, results can be seen over the course of several weeks but will continue to improve for three to six months as your body produces new cells. Afterward, we do recommend an annual microneedling treatment to maintain your results.
