As part of the normal aging process, facial skin becomes thinner and begins to sag and droop. At Advanced Wellness Institute, we offer Rejuvapen™ micro-needling to gently and comfortably tighten and smooth the skin without incisions or downtime.
Located in Columbus, North Carolina, Advanced Wellness Institute is led by Dr. Lonnie Lassiter. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and discover the benefits of Rejuvapen™ micro-needling to correct the visible signs of aging.
What is Rejuvapen™ Micro-Needling?
The natural decrease in collagen production during the aging process can cause the skin to lose shape and volume, resulting in wrinkles, lines and other visible signs of aging. Rejuvapen™ micro-needling is one of the least invasive techniques for skin rejuvenation, and can also help treat other skin imperfections such as:
- Acne/surgical scarring
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture
During the micro-needling treatment, the pen-like Rejuvapen™ device is moved slowly over treated areas, penetrating beneath the skin surface with several tiny, sterile needles that create microscopic punctures in the skin that are invisible to the naked eye. This process, often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulates the skin’s natural healing response and gradually creates fresh, new skin and tightens wrinkles and lines.
Rejuvapen™ Micro-Needling and PRP
During your consultation at Advanced Wellness Institute, our medical team will assess several factors such as your overall health, aesthetic goals, treatment expectations, and medical history. We will listen to your cosmetic concerns and advise you on all of the treatment options that are available to you. Certain contraindicating medical conditions, such as muscle or nerve disorders, may require further evaluation before BOTOX® treatment is approved.
What are the Benefits of Rejuvapen™ Micro-Needling?
In addition to gradually improving the skin using the body’s own resources, micro-needling with Rejuvapen™ has several benefits for patients, including:
- No downtime: Most patients return to normal activities immediately after micro-needling treatment. Treated areas may appear pink or flushed akin to a sunburn, which typically subsides within 24 hours to a few days.
- Exceptional safety: Rejuvapen micro-needling is clinically proven to be effective for all skin types.
- Subtle, natural results: Micro-needling utilizes the body’s natural resources for predictable, low-risk treatment that can add subtle enhancement to your facial features without looking as though you have “had work done.”
- Immediate benefits: Although the skin resurfacing process is gradual, many patients experience instant improvements in the look and feel of their skin.
When Will I See Results?
As the process of producing new skin cells and collagen takes time, patients should expect to experience full results within three to six months after the last treatment. It may take multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve your aesthetic goals, which can be discussed during your consultation.
