      Microneedling With Rejuvapen
      Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa in Santa Fe, NM


      Microneedling with Rejuvapen is a FDA-approved microneedling device that uses sterile tips containing 12 pinpoint needles to make small controlled minuscule, evenly spaced punctures into the skin. The small wounds created, which sometimes will cause pinpricks of blood to rise to the surface, then induce a wound healing response. This is the key to how microneedling works. Your body's healing response is activated by growing fresh new collagen and elastin, which gives skin more strength and resiliency. By continuing to stimulate collagen production over multiple treatments, the end result is visible less fine lines, improved texture, reduction in large pores and acne scars. This very popular treatment is great for surface issues such as crepey skin and stretch marks. We also offer Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling which should not be confused for Microneedling with Rejuvapen, see our RF Microneedling with Pixel 8 page for more information on RF Microneedling.

      We lose collagen 1% per year starting in our mid-thirties and when coupled with genetic changes and sun exposure, this leads to the desire to improve the skin's appearance.

      Rejuvapen Microneedling is FDA Cleared

      Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa offers 7 options of Microneedling with Rejuvapen. The reason we offer so many solutions is that we all have different skin issues and not one type of microneedling will resolve all concerns. The microneedling pen creates the tiny pinprick channels that stimulate a healing response, but it is what topical product we use in combination with microneedling that can address specific concerns. When we perform microneedling, we work in zones or vectors, this is because there is a phenomenon that happens when a tiny puncture is created in the skin. A vacuum effect happens and there is about a 7-15 minute window of opportunity to apply the topical product that the skin will pull deep into the tissue. It's the topical product we use that allows us to target specific goals for our patients. We have broken it all down for you and included some examples.

      It is important to remember that microneedling is not a one and done treatment. We have found a good guideline as to how many treatments you will need to achieve results is a series of 3 treatments for anyone under the age of 50 and a series of 5 treatments for anyone over the age of 50. Of course these series can vary if you have extreme issues such as acne scars then we recommend you check out our Scar Revision page or if you have severe sun damage or increased laxity issues, your treatment plan will vary.

      We break our microneedling treatments into 2 categories, Basic and Premium levels.

      Rejuvapen Microneedling Santa Fe NM

      Basic Microneedling With Rejuvapen Options Include:

      • Topical infusion option with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) - which is a great general overall hydration for dehydrated skin
      • Topical infusion option with Vitamin C - which is a good option for lightening skin that is showing signs of slight sun damage
      • Topical infusion option with Retin A - which is our go to for those with a condition called Melasma where using a laser that delivery heat to lighten Melasma will worsen the condition over time. We get great results even at the dermal layer of the skin with microneedling with Retin A.

      Premium Microneedling With Rejuvapen Options Include:

      • Topical infusion option with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) - uses your own body's growth factors from your blood that is obtained from a small blood draw then prepared into Platelet Rich Plasma. Your PRP will stimulate your skin to create new cells, thereby increasing the surface density of your skin and resulting in a refreshed look. PRP is known to also help lighten the skin where surface pigmentation is.
      • Topical infusion option with Sculptra - Sculptra which is Poly-L-Lactic Acid and comes from sugar cane plant targets collagen growth in the skin. This is a great choice for those with skin starting to show signs of thinning and crepey skin where the collagen is supplemented with Sculptra to create more collagen cells in the skin.
      • Topical infusion option with Exosomes aka Stem-Glo - Exosomes are a billion times more effective than PRP. Exosomes are micro-vesicles, about 1/1000th the size of a normal cell. Exosomes contain no DNA or nucleus. There are signaling agents used in cell-to-cell communication and signaling. Exosomes are known to activate several signaling pathways that are important in tissue regeneration and wound healing. This effect is called paracrine signaling and is at the forefront of regenerative medicine. For example, a 5 ml syringe of your own body's platelet rich plasma can contain approximately 5 thousand of your own body's growth factors and a 5 ml syringe of exosomes contain approximately 5 BILLION exosomes. Think of exosomes as the intelligent component of a stem cell.
      • Topical infusion option with V I Peel - the V I Peel option would be for those with any form of pigmentation issues. Whether it is sun damage or melasma the V I Peel when applied during microneedling reaps superior results.

      What To Expect From The Microneedling With Rejuvapen Treatment.

      Microneedling is a relatively short and painless in-office treatment. When a patient comes in for microneedling the first thing we do is apply numbing cream the to entire area being treated and let it sit for about 15 minutes. As soon as the patient's skin is numb, we thoroughly cleanse and sanitize the area and apply the topical infusion product of choice. We then begin working in sections or vectors of the area using the Rejuvapen microneedle making multiple passes in the section and applying another layer of the topical infusion product. Microneedling takes approximately 1-1.5 hours to complete depending on the topical infusion product you choose.

      When Do You See Results?

      Although many patients do see improvement 2 weeks after the treatment, the full results won't be visible for up to 4 weeks and will continue improving for up to 6 months. Most patients will complete a series of 3-5 treatments spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Medical studies have shown in punch biopsies that patients see a 45-55% overall improvement in skin. Patients notice that their skin feels and looks greatly improved.
