The Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System creates an invisible, vertical, micro perforation into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. The adverting of the Rejuvapen compared to other treatments is that it not only activates call regeneration, it also enhances the absorption of active ingredients of RP Complex into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes.
This treatment allows your skin to become firmer and regain its elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.
The Réjuvapen Micro Needling stimulates the skins natural healing which increases the production collagen which can reverse the effects of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyper-pigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin reducing appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.
Rejuvapen is a medical grade, state of the art Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System™available through skincare professionals only. It is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation creating healthier skin, and can be used to improve the appearance acne scars, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks, skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles. The repair process of your skin is accelerated by Rejuvapen through the creation of microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in better outcome.
Some patients notice healthier looking skin immediately after treatment but typically the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time, therefore it’s unrealistic to expect change right away. You may see the final results of the treatment 3-6 months following your final session.

How do the Rejuvapen treatment work?
The concept of micro-needling has been around for a while and is based upon the skin’s ability to naturally repair itself when injured. Immediately following an injury, our skin begins the process of dissolving tissue damage and replacing it with new cells. Micro-needling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically trigger new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. The micro-injuries also create channels that allow product to penetrate deeper into the skin resulting in better product efficacy.
Who can use Rejuvapen?
Rejuvapen treatments can be performed on all skin colors and types. This treatment can be used to address a wide range of problems such as acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.
What is the downtime?
The total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of repair process required. On average, patients have some slight redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of treatments required will be determined by each individuals treatment goals and the health of your skin. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 4 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals.
We also recommend developing a maintenance plan to help maintain the glow and rejuvenating effects of your personalized Rejuvapen treatments.
What are common reactions following the first treatment?
Most patients only experience some slight redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. However, the reaction to treatment depends on the severity of the damaged skin, the depth of repair process required, and how aggressive the treatment is performed.
Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?
Typically, patients can resume their normal makeup and skin care regimen 2-3 days following their Rejuvapen treatment. Some post procedure make-up can be used immediately post treatment. Oxygenetix is safe to use. As this may vary based on the area and type of treatment performed, make sure to consult your Rejuvapen provider for their recommendation.
Who shouldn’t use the Rejuvapen Treatment?
Use of Rejuvapen is contraindicated for patients with: A history of keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; a hemorrhagic disorder or hemostatic dysfunction; or an active bacterial or fungal infection.
Rejuvapen is not recommended for pregnant women because the micro-needles produce micro-injuries on the skin, which naturally causes a repair process to begin. This healing process and production of new collagen requires vitamins and nutrients to be utilized that would otherwise be reserved for the unborn child.
