Improving your appearance can be as simple as activating your skin's natural repair function with Rejuvapen Micro Needling treatment. Rejuvapen Micro Needling ResultsThe innovative treatment requires no downtime and is an excellent choice whether you want to reduce signs of aging, make scars less noticeable or decrease hyperpigmentation. Dermatologists Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening of The Rockoff Dermatology Center offer the treatment in their Brookline and Andover, MA, offices.

How does Rejuvapen Micro Needling work?

The Rejuvapen device pierces the skin with tiny microneedles that penetrate the epidermis (thinner, outer layer of skin) and dermis (thicker, inner layer). After your treatment, your skin produces more elastin and collagen as it begins to repair the perforations in your skin. Increased production of collagen and elastin has a very beneficial effect on the firmness and elasticity of your skin and can help you look more youthful. Although the needles penetrate your skin, they're so small that you won't notice any perforations when you look in the mirror. Most people require at least two treatments, given about two weeks apart.

Are Rejuvapen Micro Needling treatments a good choice for me?

Rejuvapen treatments can:

  • Firm, lift and tighten skin
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the texture and tone of your skin
  • Decrease the size of large pores
  • Minimize acne and other types of scars
  • Fade dark spots on the skin
  • Make crow's feet less noticeable
  • Smooth lines around the lips

Rejuvapen Micro Needling is frequently used on the face, but can also be used to improve the appearance of your neck, chest, legs and arms. The treatment is effective on all types of skin.

Will I notice a change in my appearance immediately?

Although your body will immediately begin to produce new collagen and elastin, it will take a while until you notice a change in the way you look. By the fourth or fifth week after treatment, you'll probably notice that your skin looks a little firmer, wrinkles have diminished or that scars have become less prominent. It generally takes about three or four months to experience the full effects of the treatment.

Rejuvapen micro needling is a dermatological treatment for rejuvenating facial skin and creating a more youthful appearance. Micro-rejuvapen micro-needlingneedling 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.
