Micro-Needling

Micro-Needling

The FDA cleared Rejuvapen NXT® is specifically designed for use with the advanced Tru Vertical® micro needling techniques such as the Tru Vertical stamping method.

Rejuvapen NXT utilizes 12 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.

What Happens During Micro Needling?

Once your skin is cleansed, a numbing cream is applied for 30-45 minutes. Your skin is then cleansed again. You may choose to have additional serums such as our Sera AK, HY or RD microneedled into the skin to enhance your results. Hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin and we use the Rejuvapen NXT to stamp the skin with 12 sterile surgical tiny needles creating thousands of micro-perforations which causes the skin to go into the healing process creating more collagen and elastin.

Micro-needling improves lines, wrinkles, scarring, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and stretch marks.
