Rejuvapen, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy(CIT) or Microneedling, stimulates your skin's natural ability to repair itself and produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger looking skin. CIT is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, legs, abdomen, and hands. CIT creates microscopic channels which allow for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair mechanism. This, in turn, triggers new collagen and elastin fibers to form creating a result of smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. CIT can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne & surgical scars, reduce pore size, and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. CIT can be performed on all skin types.
After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to a sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness, mild sensitivity to touch, and mild inflammation. Total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process required. The recovery time after a microneedling procedure is relatively short. As for actual downtime, the patient can resume their regular day to day activities within two to three days of the procedure. The natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time and it will continue to improve for up to six months post treatment.
The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient and your provider will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Although one treatment is beneficial, a series of treatment is usually recommended. Multiple treatments may be necessary over four- to eight-week intervals. After your initial treatment series, periodic maintenance may be advised (depending upon condition(s) treated). Your provider may also combine your treatment with other Aesthetic procedures, such as Refirme Skin Tightening, to further personalize your treatment.
