At Franklin Skin and Laser in Franklin, TN, we offer microneedling treatments with the Rejuvapen NXT®. These treatments are completely customizable and can target multiple skin concerns that negatively impact the skin's overall appearance.
With a unique treatment plan designed for your skin concerns, you can experience healthier and younger-looking skin after just a few treatment sessions.
Microneedling is a treatment that uses an advanced needling device to create punctures in the skin, also known as micro-wounds, microchannels, or micro-injuries. The body responds to these wounds with an immune reaction that cleanses the skin from the inside out, promotes increased cellular turnover to replace damaged skin cells with younger cells, and increases collagen and elastin production.
Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins for healthy and youthful skin. Collagen increases skin volume, while elastin promotes skin elasticity. At Franklin Skin and Laser, we use the Rejuvapen NXT® device during our microneedling treatments. This FDA-approved device delivers a safe and effective treatment that is completely customizable.
Adjusting Needle Depths
This device delivers a versatile, customizable treatment, and we can adjust the needle depths from .02 to 2.5 mm. Shorter needles target more shallow skin depths and can stimulate collagen production in more sensitive areas of the face, like the under-eye area and around the mouth. Shallow-depth needles are also an effective option for those who want to treat more superficial skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow scars and promote general skin health.
Our Signature Deeper Microneedling Treatment
At Franklin Skin and Laser, we offer a signature deeper microneedling treatment that uses deeper needle depths to meet the needs of specific clients. Deeper needles, also known as medical depth needles, can target more advanced skin concerns like deep lines and wrinkles and deeper textural imperfections, including acne scars, general scars, surgical scars, and cellulite. Patients who need more aggressive collagen-building techniques to reach their skin goals will also benefit from deeper needling treatments.
Using Your Growth Factors To Enhance Your Results
These treatments initiate a bleeding response, and that blood contains a combination of rich nutrients, including zinc, copper, and magnesium, as well as vitamins, enzymes, and nanoparticle technology. The blood then mixes with our peptide serum and transforms into a gel-like solution containing peptides and growth factors.
What To Expect
As this topical serum dries, it hardens like a topical skin care mask that we call a “blood mask.” The benefit of this treatment is that by initiating a bleeding response, we can circumvent the PRP or PFS process since your blood contains those growth factors and, during treatment, will automatically mix with our topical serums to promote treatment results.
Patients will leave the “blood mask” on their faces for at least six to eight hours post-treatment. We prefer that clients, if possible, leave the mask on for a full 24 hours so their skin can absorb all the benefits of the platelets found in the blood. That way, they can take full advantage of the skin’s increased absorption rate due to the open microchannels.
Enhancing the Treatment Results
The micro-injuries created by the Rejuvapen NXT® device cause the body to respond with increased collagen and elastin production and increase the skin’s absorption rate. The microchannels will create a pathway between the two layers during and after the treatment. For that reason, it’s important to capitalize on the increased absorption rate with an anti-aging topical solution that can absorb into the deeper layers of the skin and promote optimal treatment results.
During our treatments, we infuse a proprietary serum containing hyaluronic acid, also known as HA, peptides, and growth factors deep into the skin. For clients with melasma or pigmentary concerns, we can microneedle some topical brightening agents into the skin during treatment to lighten discoloration.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is It Painful?
When Will I See the Results?
Is there downtime?
After your treatment, your skin will be more sensitive and appear red for the first 24 hours. We will give you aftercare instructions that include a detailed list of what products to avoid, which to use, when to wash your face, and how soon you can wear makeup after your treatment to ensure optimal results.
You’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities as long as you care for your skin as it heals from the treatment. You must also avoid sun exposure to protect the skin and avoid sun damage.
Who is a good treatment candidate?
Patients who want to treat superficial skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles or promote overall skin health make good candidates for microneedling treatment plans.
At the same time, clients with more advanced skin concerns, including deep lines and wrinkles, noticeable collagen loss, acne scars, other facial scars, and hyperpigmentation, can undergo a customized treatment plan to improve their skin. We can evaluate your skin during an in-person consultation and make treatment recommendations based on your concerns.
