Rejuvapen micro needling is a dermatological treatment for rejuvenating facial skin and creating a more youthful appearance. Micro-needling accomplishes this by promoting the skin to initiate self-repair by producing additional collagen. This additional collagen helps the skin repair itself. The result is smoother skin that appears lifted and more youthful. At The Rockoff Dermatology Center, Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening are your Andover and Brookline, MA dermatologists for Rejuvapen micro-needling treatments.
What is Micro-Needling?
Rejuvapen micro needling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. The treatment prompts the skin to begin producing more collagen. Collagen is naturally produced in young, healthy skin. As we age, the skin produces less collagen. The reduction in collagen leads to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and even sagging. By increasing the amount of collagen the skin produces, the skin will appear lifted, smoother, and more youthful. Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging diminish with the increase in collagen production.
The way Rejuvapen micro needling causes the skin to begin producing more collagen is through the use of microneedles. The needles are extremely fine and are used to make tiny perforations or punctures in the top layer of the skin. These tiny punctures alert the skin that it has been injured or damaged. As a result, the skin responds by producing collagen to rejuvenate itself. In other words, micro needling prompts the skin to begin its own natural method of skin renewal. Your Andover and Brookline dermatologist can help you decide if micro needling is right for you.
