What is Rejuvapen?
Rejuvapen is a small, pen-shaped device that uses 9 micro needles to create very small perforations in the top layers of the skin. Although these perforations are invisible to the naked eye, they stimulate the skin’s natural repair process. As part of this process, the affected skin begins to produce an excess of collagen and elastin, 2 proteins that play a crucial role in skin health. At Melindas Medical Day Spa, Rejuvapen skin care treatments are administered by Melinda, our aesthetic procedures specialist and licensed medical aesthetician. Melinda’s advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and her background in aesthetics make her uniquely qualified to perform this specialized service.

What are the advantages of Rejuvapen?
Rejuvapen is non-surgical, which means that it comes with less risk and no scarring, unlike procedures that require an incision. Because no anesthesia is necessary, the chance of complications is minimized, and surgical risks, such as infection, are also greatly reduced. Rejuvapen uses the body’s natural reparative mechanisms to improve the look of skin without the aggressive use of chemicals or other substances. Not only does Rejuvapen activate cell regeneration, it makes the skin more receptive to the active ingredients in topical products, boosting their effectiveness.
Who is a good candidate for Rejuvapen?
During your consultation, our aesthetician evaluates your skin and makes effective treatment recommendations based on your needs. Rejuvapen is suitable for many people because it treats a large variety of concerns.
What happens after a Rejuvapen treatment?
Unlike surgery, Rejuvapen does not require an at-home recovery period. Most patients report feeling as if they have a sunburn, and skin warmth and tightness may persist for a couple of hours. These effects typically diminish within 24 hours. During this time, you should keep your hands and face clean and avoid using makeup to allow the micro perforations to properly heal.
The results of Rejuvapen typically take between 6 and 8 weeks to become visible. Some patients choose to undergo more than one procedure, while others achieve their desired results after a single session. Melinda works with Rejuvapen patients to help them create realistic timelines to achieve their skin care goals.
