Who Is a Candidate for Rejuvapen Micro-Needling?
By Kenneth Smart Jr. on November 29, 2016
While we achieve great results with plastic surgery, more and more patients have been turning to non-surgical cosmetic skin treatments to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs off age. We offer many cosmetic dermatology and advanced skin care procedures at our practice, and field countless questions from people in and around Dallas who want to look their best.
Rejuvapen Micro-Needling is one skin care treatment that's caught the attention of many. Let's cover the basics and then go over who is an ideal candidate for this non-invasive procedure.
What Is Rejuvapen Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling refers to a process that stimulate your skin's production of collagen, a protein that's crucial for your skin's shape and firmness. Using small needles on the skin, your body's natural repair mechanisms kick in, resulting in collagen production.
By stimulating collagen production, Rejuvapen Micro-Needling helps make blemishes, lines, and wrinkles disappear on their own. There are different needle sizes to help control the collagen production in the treatment area.
Is Micro-Needling Painful?
Generally not. Some people who undergo Rejuvapen Micro-Needling feel no pain, while other may feel some discomfort during treatment. A numbing cream is applied to the skin before treatment to help reduce sensations of pain, no matter how mild.
General Candidacy for Rejuvapen Micro-Needling
Rejuvapen Micro-Needling is an ideal treatment for people who suffer from relatively minor wrinkles, lines, blemishes, and skin texture issues that affect their appearance. For more serious issues with facial appearance and lax skin, facial plastic surgery or cosmetic injections may be more ideal.
Conditions Rejuvapen Micro-Needling Can Treat
Rejuvapen Micro-Needling tends to be most ideal for the following skin conditions:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose or sagging skin
- Enlarges pores
- Poor skin texture
Carefully targeted Rejuvapen Micro-Needling can deal with combinations of these skin conditions quite easily.
Realistic Expectations About Treatment
It's important that patients have realistic expectations about Rejuvapen Micro-Needling and what it can achieve. In some cases, multiple sessions of Rejuvapen Micro-Needling are required in order to reach optimal results. These sessions will need to be spaces a few weeks apart so the collagen growth from the previous session has time to do its job.
Poor Candidates for Rejuvapen Micro-Needling
While many people are able to undergo Rejuvapen Micro-Needling, there are some who may be less than ideal for the procedure. People who are prone to serious scarring and keloids, for instance, are poor candidates for the procedure. Those with active skin infections and serious diabeetes should also not undergo Rejuvapen Micro-Needling treatment. In these cases, alternative cosmetic treatments are available that can achieve great results.

The best way to find out if Rejuvapen Micro-Needling is right for you is to stop by the practice for a consultation. We will be able to assess your situation and determine what treatment might be best suited to meet your aesthetic goals. In some cases, a combination of Rejuvapen Micro-Needling and another procedure may be most ideal.
