Rejuvapen is designed to stimulate the skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. As a result of this self-repair process, skin renewal occurs from the inside, out – in a completely natural form. Collagen is the main structural protein found in connective tissue; its production results in healthier, fuller, firmer skin and a reduction in appearance of fine line and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical scars, acne scars, pore size, plus lifts, tightens, and rejuvenates the skin.
The Rejuvapen micro-fractional collagen stimulation treatment, conveniently offered at Renewed Skin Care LLC, is an advanced micro-needling procedure that makes use of nine precisely spaced micro-needles. These micro-needles are fitted into a small cartridge and are designed to create unseen, vertical, micro-perforations in the top layers of the dermis and epidermis. The micro-needling process shifts the natural repair mechanism of the skin into high gear.
Ideal Candidates for Rejuvapen Treatment
One of the most sensational advantages of Rejuvapen is that its skin rejuvenation benefits are well-suited for most skin types, as well as for all parts of the body.
Potential Risks and Recovery
Rejuvapen micro-fractional collagen treatment is a safe procedure with minimal risk of complications. A topical numbing ointment is applied to the treatment area before treatment begins. While there may be some slight discomfort during and after the procedure, many patients report feeling like they have a sunburn. Warmth and tightness, swelling, and some redness are the most common side effects, though all are temporary and typically last up to a few days.
Total recovery time can vary from one patient to another, depending on the severity of their condition and the depth of the treatment received. To achieve optimal results, a series of four to eight treatment sessions may be required. Final outcomes will establish gradually over several weeks and months after the final treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process & stimulate new collagen & elastin up to 1000% more using your own natural platelets.
PRP is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
When we experience tissue damage, platelets are one of the bodies’ first specialist repair cells to travel to the site. Platelets contain a range of growth factors. These growth factors organize tissue repair cells to promote faster healing times.
PRP contains highly concentrated platelets which release a complex mixture of growth factors. These growth factors stimulate cellular growth and division and help to:
•Improve and accelerate healing
•Increase development of new blood vessels •Promote growth of the bodies’ cells & tissue
The Centrifuge allows us to prepare the concentrated platelet rich
plasma from a sample of your own blood to be used during your selected treatment. The system allows us to adjust the volume and concentration of the platelets, white and red blood cells to provide a specialized treatment tailored for you. By choosing to add the PRP treatment you will see an increase in results at an accelerated rate.
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It also eliminates the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that can cake up in makeup and be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments, and chemical peels
WHO IS IT FOR?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types, except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream.
ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?
There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
WHAT ARE THE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?
You’ll immediately look radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.
RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
Chemical peeling is a procedure that aims to accelerate skin exfoliation by the use of chemical substances resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and more uniform complexion. Skin Medica Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and texture. Peels also address skin tone unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. SkinMedica® offers a range of different strength chemical peels.
SkinMedica Peels are offered in different levels of strength. Tolerance to the procedure varies from patient to patient. Tingling or burning sensations are normal and expected reactions during the treatment. Be advised that because we are not all the same, everyone will have a different reaction and healing process after a peel. Expected down time will also vary depending on the level. It is recommended to wear a mineral broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 20 or higher. Peels should not be administered to pregnant or lactating women.
You can resume the use of your regular home care products after you have completely finished peeling and skin is back to a normal state.
Multiple treatments may be required to achieve desired results. The number of treatments is based on initial level of skin damage and can vary from 3 to 6. The effect of the peel is cumulative and results are favorable when the peels are used in conjunction with SkinMedica daily product regimen.
A chemical peel is a technique which involves the application of a variety of chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. It is extremely beneficial for many skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and photo aging. By removing the build-up of dead skin cells and stimulating the regenerative process, you will notice marked improvements in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, texture and tone of the skin, hydration, reduced pore size, clearing of blemishes and more balanced oil production and an overall healthier skin appearance.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF RHONDA ALLISON PEELS
All Rhonda Allison treatment procedures are considered superficial; they do not penetrate beyond the epidermis or papillary dermis. They are not to be confused with medical or physician-strength peels that affect the reticular dermis.
This refers to a treatment that does not usually cause immediate exfoliation and only removes the outer layer of skin or the stratum corneum. As treatments are repeated, the skin will experience a mild sloughing.
These peels affect the intra-epidermal layer, and exfoliation occurs within two to three days after application. The skin goes through very little down time. Peeling consists of light flaking similar to a sunburn peel.
These peels affect the deepest intra-epidermal layers. The skin becomes brown and crusty then undergoes considerable peeling, which occurs three to four days after application. The skin peels in large segments as opposed to flaking. The entire process takes about seven to ten days.
WHAT TYPE OF HOME CARE SHOULD I USE AFTER MY CHEMICAL PEEL?
There are specific instructions to be followed after your skin peel – this is as important as the peel itself. Post care will include occlusive healing balms, epidermal growth factor (cell renewal and wound repair), and calming, soothing topicals to reduce itching and inflammation, and always apply sun screen! You will receive a post care recovery kit with your peel treatment.
When the skin peel is completed and it has been determined the skin is healed, daily skin care is essential. The most important part of a home care routine is a cleanser and a sunblock. Next in importance is a supportive cell rejuvenator. These are the basics. Additional specialty products, such as pumice and buffing washes, antioxidants, eye serums, nighttime moisturizers, AHAs, ascorbic acid, retinol, enzymes, masks, and topical correctives may be added to enhance and maintain results.
