When it comes to improving your skin’s appearance, the options can seem overwhelming. One option that has proven to be safe and effective is microneedling. In this treatment, tiny needles create microchannels in the skin, stimulating collagen production and helping improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. Our PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment can give even better results when combined with microneedling.
At Aesthetic Essentials, we can help determine if microneedling or microneedling with PRP is right for you. And with proper aftercare and follow-up treatments, we can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. Let’s discuss the benefits of microneedling, PRP microneedling, and Rejuvapen and how we can use them to achieve optimal results.
Microneedling vs. Microneedling with PRP
Both treatments involve using tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and promoting collagen production. However, by incorporating platelet-rich plasma, microneedling with PRP takes the treatment a step further. This plasma, derived from the patient’s blood, contains growth factors that can enhance the treatment results. In addition, PRP can be applied topically following the microneedling procedure for even greater benefits. While both microneedling techniques can improve skin texture and reduce fine lines and scars, microneedling with PRP may offer more dramatic results and a shorter recovery period.
When it comes to facial rejuvenation treatments, microneedling and microneedling with PRP have become popular options. Here, we use Rejuvapen for both traditional microneedling and microneedling combined with PRP treatment for even better results.
What is Rejuvapen?
Rejuvapen is a microneedling device that is commonly used in skincare treatments. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promotes the production of collagen, and can improve the texture and tone of the skin. Compared to traditional needle rollers, Rejuvapen has precisely adjustable micro-needles that can penetrate the skin at varying depths. This customization allows for targeted treatment of specific areas or concerns. In addition, there is less discomfort during the procedure and a faster recovery time compared to other methods, such as chemical peels or laser treatments. Rejuvapen is an effective option for those looking to rejuvenate their skin without downtime or harsh chemicals.
How Does the Rejuvapen Work?
The needles used in Rejuvapen treatments puncture the skin, but they do so in a controlled and precise manner. This controlled injury prompts the body’s natural healing response, increasing collagen and elastin production. This can result in smoother, firmer skin with diminished fine lines and wrinkles and improved texture and tone. Additionally, the punctures created by the needles also allow for better absorption of skincare products, amplifying their effects for enhanced results. The Rejuvapen treatment can be used on various face and body areas, including the forehead, cheeks, chin, neck, décolletage, and hands.
Results may vary from person to person, but most patients see noticeable improvements after just one or two sessions, with ongoing improvements over time. With proper skin care, these results can be long-lasting. Rejuvapen offers a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance.
What Should You Expect During and After Your Treatment Session(s)?
It is vital to start any skin treatment with a clean and dry base to ensure optimal results. We may apply a topical numbing solution at the beginning of your treatment to ensure comfort. The Rejuvapen device is then used to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface, targeting imperfections such as fine lines and scars and stimulating collagen and elastin production for a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you choose microneedling with PRP, a personalized serum is created from a small sample of your blood.
After the treatment, avoiding wearing makeup for a short time while the skin heals is recommended. However, nutrient-rich skin care products can aid absorption and improve overall results. It is also essential to be cautious with products applied to the treated area to avoid irritation. Following these guidelines will help you achieve optimal results from your Rejuvapen treatment.
How Often Do You Need to Get Treatments for Optimal Results?
The frequency of Rejuvapen treatments will vary for everyone, as every person and their skin have unique needs. However, most patients see optimal results with monthly or bi-monthly treatments. Over time, the intervals can increase to every few months or as needed. These results last for several months before needing another treatment. It is important to keep up with a good skincare regimen in between sessions to maintain those results and continue seeing improvement in the long term.
We can also design a treatment plan to determine the best course of action for your skin’s continued success. Ultimately, finding the right treatment plan is a collaborative effort. By staying consistent and following your treatment recommendations, you can achieve long-lasting results with Rejuvapen treatments.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Rejuvapen Treatments?
Generally, a suitable candidate for Rejuvapen treatments is someone with overall healthy skin with mild to moderate skincare concerns. However, it is always best to consult with us before undergoing this cosmetic procedure.
