Rejuvapen Micro Needling Weston
The Rejuvapen is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment that causes skin to stimulate collagen production and fresh, new tissue. Skin tightens; wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation significantly diminish; pores become finer; and the overall health and circulation of the skin is improved.
The Réjuvapen Micro Needling stimulates the skins natural healing which increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The normal healing response begins the moment of tissue injury by the perforations of the micro needles.
Rejuvapen’s nine precisely spaced micro needles create tiny perforations in the top two layers of the skin. The skin shifts its repair mechanism into high gear, producing collagen and elastin to mend these micro-perforations. This is a 100% natural form of skin renewal, repairing from the inside out. Your skin will be firmer and regain its elasticity, so fine lines and wrinkles become visibly reduced, pores are smaller, and you look younger.
With every new procedure comes questions, and these should answer many of yours.
