At Amara, medical microneedling with Rejuvapen is one of the most effective tools we have to combat acne scarring, other scarring and regenerate healthy skin.
Rejuvapen actively stimulates collagen and elastin production – the most important structural components of your skin.
It’s the perfect treatment for people looking for non-laser and non-surgical options for tissue regeneration or scar treatment.
How does Rejuvapen work?
Rejuvapen works in the following way –
- It perforates the top layers of your skin vertically, at precise depths and spacing. These micro perforations are invisible to the eye but detected by your body’s repair systems.
- Once detected the body shifts its natural repair systems up a gear and presses a turbo button. This promotes the production of collagen (for strength and structure) and elastin (skin elasticity) to repair the micro damage.
What problems can be treated with Rejuvapen microneedling?
|Pore size||Acne scarring|
|Fine lines and wrinkles||Sagging and loose skin|
|Hyperpigmentation||Dull, lifeless skin|
What are the results of treatment with Rejuvapen?
The stimulation of collagen and elastin production has a regenerative effect on many common skin concerns:
|Improves pore structure and stability lessening the chances of clogging and blockages associated with acne, breakouts and blemishes|
|Improves the appearance of acne scarring by stimulating collagen and elastin to compensate deficiencies in scars formed due to acne damage|
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
|Restoring lost collagen and elastin smooths out fine lines and wrinkles|
Sagging and Loose Skin
|Sagging and loose skin is caused by loss of structure and elasticity, the two thing Rejuvapen provides.|
|The improved circulation and regenerated tissue greatly diminishes the appearance of hyperpigmentation|
Dull, lifeless skin
|Promoting natural skin regeneration is the perfect way to rejuvenate dull and lifeless skin|
|Increasing the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin can improve stretch marks|
|Improves the appearance of skin scarring through the stimulation of collagen and elastin which compensates for scar deficiencies|
When can I expect to see results?
A single Rejuvapen treatment will yield results with the skin looking healthier immediately (after the redness from the treatment has resolved – see below). However, Rejuvapen is not a wonder treatment. If your skin has had a problem for some time, we cannot expect a single treatment to quick fix the issue – a course is often required.
At your consultation our skin specialists will give you a more realistic timeline but for most people we recommend 5 sessions with the final results being seen at between 4 and 6 months.
What is the downtime with microneedling?
There will be redness much like sunburn and this will persist for 24-48 hrs, possibly even 72-96 hrs for more sensitive skin types.
There is necessarily some very light bleeding during the treatment. Bruising may also occur but this is very unusual at Amara.
You must wear an SPF and stay out of the sun following your treatment. Aftercare includes a serum containing copper peptides, which helps with the repair process.
You should be prepared to face some down time. Our skin health specialists will help you time your treatments accordingly to minimise the impact of this on your life.
Does medical microneedling hurt?
A topical anaesthetic is applied to the skin and allowed to take effect before the procedure to ensure comfort. Clients describe the sensation as similar to that of fine sandpaper being used against their skin.
What’s the difference between Rejuvapen and other microneedling?
What sets Rejuvapen apart from other microneedling treatments available today is the level of control it gives our skin specialists. If our skin specialists have more control, they can adapt your treatment to get you the best possible results.
At Amara, we’re a results based clinic which is why we selected Rejuvapen ahead of all other microneedling technologies available today.
