Frequently Asked Questions about Rejuvapen
Rejuvapen is an amazing breakthrough in skin care that yields amazing results quickly with almost no downtime. Rejuvapen’s nine precisely spaced micro needles create tiny perforations in the top two layers of the skin. The skin shifts its repair mechanism into high gear, producing collagen and elastin to mend these micro-perforations. This is a 100% natural form of skin renewal, repairing from the inside out. Your skin will be firmer and regain its elasticity, so fine lines and wrinkles become visibly reduced, pores are smaller, and you look younger.
With every new procedure comes questions, and these should answer many of yours.
Q: What results can I expect from Rejuvapen?
A: Skin becomes firmer, regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores are smaller and circulation is stimulated so the overall condition and appearance of the skin improves.
Q: What skin problems does Rejuvapen primarily address?
A: Rejuvapen addresses fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and skin texture by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation creating healthier skin.
Q: What areas are typical for Rejuvapen treatments?
A: The forehead, around the eyes, cheeks, around the mouth, neck and chest are treated most often, but Rejuvapen can be used on problem areas like surgical scarring to reduce prominence.
Q: How long does is a treatment with Rejuvapen?
A: Procedure time ranges from 30-60 minutes per area depending on the treatment area.
Q: Is it painful and is pain medication involved?
A: All it requires is a topical numbing agent on for 15 minutes before your Rejuvapen procedure. Individualized settings allows for treatments to be adjusted to any skin type and sensitivity level.
Q: What is the recovery time after a Rejuvapen treatment?
A: There is very little down time. Patients will be pink – it will look like a sunburn and feel like a mild windburn – for only about 24 hours. You can resume normal activity immediately after the procedure including driving yourself home. Your practitioner will prescribe a post-procedure skincare regime to optimize healing.
Q: How many procedures does it take to see results.
A: You will actually see visible results after the first treatment, and results improve after subsequent treatments. It is recommended to have 3-4 treatments for optimal results.
Q: How do you get started on a Rejuvapen regimen?
A: Schedule a consultation to ensure that Rejuvapen is the right treatment for you, then schedule individual treatments over the next 3-4 months (based on the recommendation of your skin care professional). If you have a history of cold sores you will need to pretreat with anti-virals to prevent an outbreak post procedure.

WHAT IS MICRO NEEDLING
Micro-needling with Rejuvapen consists of precisely spaced, tiny needles in a small cartridge that makes very small, virtually invisible, vertical perforations into the top two layers of the skin.
Rejuvapen causes the skin to kick into repair mode to fix these tiny holes, making the skin naturally produce collagen that in turn gives you a plumper, more youthful look. Collagen and elastin work to self-repair – resulting in a 100% natural skin renewal system that heals and improves your skin from the inside out. Your body is actually doing the heavy lifting!
You will see results after one treatment, but the most powerful results are seen after three treatments. You get the best results with the absolute adherence to spacing treatments one month apart, allowing your natural collagen to do it’s work improving skin plumpness, tissue repair and natural radiance.
The “Great Eight” – Summer Skin Protection Tips
Summer is the time to have your head in the clouds. It is also the time to keep your mind on Sun protection! Here is our ‘Great Eight’ Sun Protection Tips to get the most out of your sunscreen and to keep your skin safe from the sun’s harmful rays.
- Always, always wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or above
- Use a shot glass full of sunscreen – 1.5 oz. – each time you apply head to toe
- It’s best to apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going outdoors
- Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours, and during intense sun apply every 45 minutes to 1 hour
- Use sunscreen lip balm and reapply often
- Check the expiration date on your sunscreen and discard expired products
- Don’t keep sunscreen in the car – extreme heat breaks down sun protective ingredients
- Don’t rely solely on sunscreen – use a hat, good sunglasses and sun protective clothing
Our sunscreen pick for fun in the sun? Physician recommended Elta-MD has a family of sun protection products, and everyone should use two of these sunscreen tools – 1) a DAILY sunscreen for everyday use and 2) a SPORT sunscreen for times of extreme exposure.
For everyday use – and we mean every day – we like Elta-MD Daily SPF 40 or Elta-MD Clear SPF 46 under your makeup to save your face from harmful rays. Use broad-spectrum Elta-MD Sport SPF 50 for active exposure.
Play it smart by spending a lot of chill time in the shade when you are at the beach or the pool. Be safe and be glad that a deep dark tan has gone out of style!
