Microneedling With Rejuvapen®
Rejuvapen microneedling treatments at Beth Collins, M.D. in Guilford, CT, stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. This medical-grade treatment not only will improve the skin’s appearance, but also address hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
There are many wonderful benefits that can result from the treatment. Since it enhances the production of collagen, microneedling helps patients from New Haven, Madison, New London, Mystic, and nearby cities reverse the signs of sun damage, and reduce the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced and an overall healthier appearance of the skin will occur.
What is the downtime after microneedling?
Typically the healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the procedure. Most commonly there may be some redness that resembles mild sunburn. This may last for 2-4 days. Some patients may have the redness dissipate within 24 hours.
Who is a candidate for Rejuvapen microneedling?
One of the most exciting things about Rejuvapen is that it can be used on all types of skin and can be used to address a wide range of problems such as acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.
When will patients see results?
Patients may notice healthier looking skin right away. However, keep in mind that dermal collagen remodeling occurs over time and it would not be realistic to expect damage that has happened to the skin over a long period of time to disappear right away. We suggest a series of 4-6 sessions depending on what the treatment is for. Individuals may not see final results until 3-6 months following the last appointment.
How many Rejuvapen treatments are recommended?
The number of treatments required will be determined by your unique treatment goals and the health of your skin. However, most patients benefit from a series of 4 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6 to 8 sessions at 4 to 6-week intervals.
You can get the results of 4 treatments of Rejuvapen with one treatment with one of our new lasers!
How long do microneedling results last?
We recommend developing a maintenance plan to help maintain the glow and rejuvenating effects of your personalized Rejuvapen treatments indefinitely to address future sun damage and aging of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Rejuvapen?
Rejuvapen is a medical grade, state of the art Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System™available through skincare professionals only. Rejuvapen is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation creating healthier skin, and can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, skin texture as well as, fine lines and wrinkles. The repair process of your skin is accelerated by Rejuvapen through the creation of microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in better product outcomes.
How does Rejuvapen work?
The concept of micro-needling has been around for a while and is based upon the skin’s ability to naturally repair itself when injured. Immediately following an injury, our skin begins the process of dissolving tissue damage and replacing it with new cells. Micro-needling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically trigger new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. The micro-injuries also create channels that allow product to penetrate deeper into the skin resulting in better product efficacy.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
There are numerous benefits received through Rejuvapen treatments because new collagen production can reverse the effects of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and hyper-pigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin reducing appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Consider scheduling a HydraFacial MD® treatment before your microneedling procedure to enhance the results.
What areas of the body can I treat with microneedling?
Rejuvapen’s variable needle depth allows for versatility and therefore it can be used on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
What does a Rejuvapen microneedling treatment feel like?
The unique design of Rejuvapen allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment very comfortable for most patients.
How long does a microneedling procedure take?
The procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated, number of areas and the severity of damage on the skin.
What is the downtime?
The total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of repair process required. On average, patients have some slight redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see results from Rejuvapen?
Many patients notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Keep in mind dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time it is not realistic to expect damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time to disappear immediately. You may not see the final result until up to 3-6 months following your final session.
What are common reactions following the first Rejuvapen treatment?
Most patients only experience some slight redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. However, the reaction to treatment depends on the severity of the damaged skin, the depth of repair process required, and how aggressive the treatment is performed.
Can I get a Rejuvapen treatment if I’m pregnant?
Rejuvapen is not recommended for pregnant women because the micro-needles produce micro-injuries on the skin, which naturally causes a repair process to begin. This healing process and production of new collagen requires vitamins and nutrients to be utilized that would otherwise be reserved for the unborn child.
Can Rejuvapen be used on all Fitzpatrick skin types?
Yes! In fact, this is a big advantage offered through Rejuvapen’s technology. Rejuvapen treatments can be performed on all skin colors and types.
Is there anyone who should not use Rejuvapen?
Use of Rejuvapen is contraindicated for patients with: A history of keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; a hemorrhagic disorder or hemostatic dysfunction; or an active bacterial or fungal infection.
Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?
Typically, patients can resume their normal makeup and skin care regimen 2-3 days following their Rejuvapen treatment. Some post procedure make-up can be used immediately post treatment. Oxygenetix is safe to use. As this may vary based on the area and type of treatment performed, make sure to consult your Rejuvapen provider for their recommendation.
