How Does Microneedling Work?

Over time, collagen and elastin, the body’s natural defense against aging, start to break down. Microneedling pens induce the body’s natural ability to create new, healthy skin. Microneedling involves a series of micro-punctures with tiny, sterile needles that spark the body’s healing and promote the growth of new, younger skin. It is a safe, effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and skin texture.

Not just any microneedling treatment will do. Other dermarollers bend, break, and sometimes even rust, resulting in infection or scarring that is often worse than the problems they’re attempting to treat.

Our Rejuvapen®’s needles are sterile and designed to penetrate the dermis at a 90-degree angle for optimal stimulation of collagen and elastin. The Rejuvapen® is one of the most advanced microneedling tools on the market and one of the few that is FDA approved.

What Areas of the Body Does Microneedling Treat?

The versatility of the Rejuvapen® is what makes it such a vital part of RenewMe Medspa’s Microneedling treatment. Inferior dermarollers only treat the face, but the Rejuvapen® can be used on all parts of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • This means stretch marks and acne scarring in areas other than the face can be treated.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Each patient’s skin and areas of concern differ, and our highly trained staff will address the number of sessions and depth of treatment during your consultation for the best possible outcome. Anyone seeking skin improvements through microneedling collagen-induction therapy is a good candidate.

How Long Does a Microneedling Treatment Last?*

Microneedling sessions can take about an hour from start to finish depending on the size of the area being targeted.

*Individual Results May Vary*

How Quickly Will I See Results?*

For many patients, it’s possible to see immediate improvement. However, the body’s natural healing process can take weeks, so initial improvements will increase over time. It’s not unusual for your skin to heal over 3-6 months following your Microneedling session. The number of treatments required depends on the amount of skin damage you’re hoping to repair and your individual goals. Patients typically have 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Patients with deeper wrinkles, acne scarring, or stretch marks may need as many as 6-8 treatments. We also recommend annual maintenance microneedling sessions.

*Individual Results May Vary*

Is There Any Downtime?*

Total healing depends on the severity of damaged skin. Average patients experience 2-4 days of redness and sensitivity (much like a sunburn), though some heal completely within 24 hours.
