What is medical microneedling?
Medical microneedling is a technique used specifically for percutaneous collagen induction therapy, which is an alternative method for treating wrinkles and scar tissue through the effective stimulation of collagen production from within the skin layers without the usual destruction of the skin’s epidermal barrier.
How does medical microneedling work?
Medical microneedling works by creating microscopic holes in the skin that heal in just a few hours. These controlled micro-injuries instigate a series of changes, setting off the body’s natural healing response for the production of new collagen and elastin fibers from within the skin, resulting in tighter, smoother, and plumped up skin in the treated areas.
What are the benefits of a Rejuvapen treatment?
This process has two major benefits. It effectively stimulates your body’s natural healing process which in turn boosts collagen and elastin formation to plump, fill, firm, and tighten skin; as well as providing a clear channel for topical products of PRF to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin.
