The Franklin Skin & Laser team is pleased to offer an exciting type of treatment called microneedling that is changing how dermatologists lessen fine lines and scars, and restore youthful tone and texture.
By creating micro-wounds in a controlled, precise manner, microneedling stimulates a beneficial process in which, as skin heals, surface irregularities such as scars are filled in with firming collagen proteins.
Microneedling is delivered via a device that looks like a pen. There are many of these devices on the market today, but Dr. Bengelsdorf has invested in Rejuvapen™ for good reason. Manufactured by aesthetic technologies company Refine USA, Rejuvapen™ is equipped with 9 tiny needles. The pen is highly adjustable; both speed and depth can be modified to each patient’s unique needs and goals for highly customized treatments.
A session may be completed over a lunch hour. A numbing cream may be applied to the skin before treatment for added comfort. Often patients compare the sensation of the Rejuvapen™ going over their skin to sandpaper. Keep in mind that some areas of scarring, for instance, may be more sensitive to the Rejuvapen™ than other areas.
One of the nice things about Rejuvapen™ is that the system offers many safe products that may be applied after the procedure to speed up healing and optimize the results of treatment. Depending on your goals and skin type, Dr. Bengelsdorf may recommend you undergo additional treatments. Generally, your skin may appear more luminous and healthy immediately following a single treatment. Yet, since microneedling stimulates a process, you may not see full results from treatment for four months or so.
Unlike other invasive and minimally invasive treatments that require prolonged downtime, Rejuvapen’s side effects are typically limited to pinkness or redness resembling sunburn or windburn in the first couple of days after the procedure. There is no downtime, and with appropriate sun protection and the safe application of products as recommended by Dr. Bengelsdorf, you can enjoy a comfortable experience following each session.
Skills and experience can vary dramatically from one dermatology provider to the next. You are in good hands with the Franklin Skin & Laser team. The doctor is a board-certified surgeon who will meet with you initially. During this consultation, he will determine if you are a suitable candidate for microneedling or he may find you would benefit from another type of treatment. The beauty of microneedling is it may be used in conjunction with light-based therapies and other types of procedures to achieve desired results.
As with other types of procedures, Dr. Bengelsdorf will supervise the microneedling sessions administered by a licensed medical esthetician. To find out if the Rejuvapen procedure is right for you, schedule an appointment in Nashville TN area. Call the Franklin office at (615) 595-8177.
