Micro-Needling

The Rejuvapen NXT Automatic Therapy System utilizes 12 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.

About Micro-Needling

Blue’s Rejuvapen NXT Micro-needling is just what you need to keep you going, keep you looking fresh, and with little to no downtime, no one ever needs to know. Although, we never mind if you tell your friends. Using an electric handheld device, 12 very-fine needles that create thousands of micro-channels within the skin stimulate what’s called a “wound healing response.” This in turn creates the stimulation of collagen, alleviating the appearance of acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, even stretch marks!!

What is Micro-Needling?

Blue’s Rejuvapen treatment gives a light tingling, or “prickly” sensation, and may provide a temporary reddening for up to 24-48 hours post treatment. It may also create a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Even pinpoint bleeding that can occur with a deeper treatment, usually only leaves redness and mild inflammation for 2-4 days max! Working hand in hand with a provider that knows YOUR skin’s needs and wants, you can feel rest assured that a treatment of this magnitude is done with care and expertise. Optimal result is achieved with a series of treatments. An individualized at home regimen is ALWAYS prescribed by our specialists and recommended for your personal need(s). We’ll follow-up with you a few days after, as well, to be sure you’re on the track to success. Call us today for your personalized, one on one consult with our specialists!

Some patients require only a single treatment to achieve optimal results. However, most patients
will benefit most from a series of 4 treatments, spaced 3-4 wks apart.

For patients with deep acne scarring, wrinkles, or stretch marks we recommended 6-8 treatments at 3-4 wk intervals.

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. Hyaluronic Acid based products are recommended to assist with redness and possible dryness.

Numbing cream may be applied 30-45mins. prior to micro-needling to lessen discomfort. For better results we use a collagen-stimulating product like Hyaluronic Acid. A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with 9 tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. Our needling pen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing Hyaluronic acid or Copper Healing Gel is used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
