How Can I Improve my Collagen Production Naturally?

Collagen is one of the major building blocks of bone, muscle, connective tissues, and skin. The collagen of our youth is like a tightly woven net providing structure and support for our skin and underlying tissues. As we age, the threads of this net stretch and break, so our skin has more give and bounces back more slowly. Microneedling with the SkinPen® is one way Rejuve Med-Spa can help repair existing collagen, encourage new collagen production, and tighten the supportive net behind youthful, supple skin.

What is Microneedling with SkinPen®?

Your skin has the amazing ability to heal itself and replenish collagen that has weakened or been lost. The first phase is the inflammation stage. The SkinPen® creates micro-injuries with tiny, sterile needles to trigger the immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, and increase blood flow to begin tissue creation. Next, new cells proliferate, increasing collagen production, and a new network of blood vessels develops. Last, the wound is remodeled with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. The old, wounded skin is gone, having flaked away and been replaced with new glowing skin.

Not just any microneedling device will work. Other dermarollers bend, break, or even rust, increasing the chance of poor healing, infection, and scarring worse than the initial problems being treated. SkinPen’s® sterile needles are precisely engineered to penetrate the skin at an optimal angle for healing and collagen stimulation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?

Good candidates for Microneedling with SkinPen® are those with acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture problems, and pigmentation concerns. During your consultation, our state-of-the-art Visia skin analysis system will produce a 3D picture of your skin’s condition, including any irregularities, wrinkles, pores, vascular concerns, discoloration, texture issues, UV spots, and even bacteria and oils. The multi-spectral imaging Visia provides will give our experienced team the information to customize a treatment plan addressing all your concerns from start to finish, so your experience at Rejuve Med-Spa will get the job done and done right.

Your Treatment, Downtime, and Results with Microneedling

Armed with your Visia skin analysis, your procedure will be conducted in our luxurious and relaxing spa environment for the greatest patient comfort possible. The depth of your treatment and the severity of damaged skin determine healing time. On average, patients experience 2-4 days of redness, sunburn-like sensitivity, and tenderness. Some flaking and peeling of dead skin cells is normal. This is your body’s healing in action and is a good sign. Patients generally require 3-4 treatments every 4 weeks to correct common skin problems, and for deeper issues, 6-8 treatments may be necessary. Collagen production will continue for 3-6 months following your treatments, leaving behind glowing, supple, nourished skin with greater blood flow and a tighter collagen net of support. Many patients schedule annual maintenance treatments to continue the benefit of Microneedling and stave off future signs of aging. 

At Rejuve Med-Spa, our team’s combined 150 years’ experience in the cosmetic enhancement industry, the opulent and soothing atmosphere, and our comprehensive understanding of your individual skin profile mean each patient is cared for to exacting standards not found anywhere else in the Dallas area.

I have been going to Rejuve for years. They are excellent at what they do, have a beautiful space, and very good specials. I was there Saturday for the final of a 3-treatment skin pen series. I have had outstanding results and recommend the service to anyone that wants a fresh dewy look with very minimal down time and no fillers.
