Micro Needling Therapy, also known as skin needling or Micro Factional Collagen Stimulation System™ uses an electric pen shaped studded with 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. The advantage of the RejuvapenTM compared to other treatments is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also enhances the absorption of active ingredients of RP ComplexTM into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes. Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.
- Minimizes pore size

Since its introduction into the market, the Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System™ has been used in Micro needling treatments used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, atrophied and sun damaged skin, multiple forms of scarring, and stretch marks.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles used to prick the skin to create a controlled skin injury.The Rejuvapen™ advanced skin needling technology uses 9 precisely spaced micro needles that vertically pricks the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, while allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. The absorbtion of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Treatments only take about 30 minutes and regular treatments are scheduled about 3-4 weeks apart. For skin rejuvenation, we recommend 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart. Acne scaring treatments require 6 treatments 6 weeks apart and about 10 treatments for stretch marks 4-6 weeks apart.
Results are noticable after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments. The skin continue to improve over the next 6-12 month after a course of treatments.
For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment creams, such as Vitamin A, C or Resveratrol & Procyanidin is recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas).
For minimum needle depths microneedling treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep, may require a topical anesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain free.
Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
It is recommended to wait at least 7 days after filler injections, so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. It is also possible to have your micro-needling treatment several days before having fillers injected.
For best results, we recommend a series of 4 treatments 6 weeks apart to correct the skin.
