What is the RevitaPen?
RevitaPen is an alternative to microneedling that uses non-piercing nano-spheres at the tip of the handpiece to create openings in the skin. This allows it to push active serums into these channels for better product absorption. This technique can lead to boosted collagen production and rejuvenation through your skin’s natural processes. RevitaPen treatments are usually combined with a comprehensive facial for best results.
Who is a Candidate for RevitaPen Treatment?
Most patients can benefit from RevitaPen treatments, which can be combined with other effective skin treatments for best results. RevitaPen is gentle enough to be used on sensitive areas like the eye area or the lips, unlike some other skin treatments. Certain skin conditions may be cause for delaying your RevitaPen treatment, like infections or lesions, psoriasis, or retinol use. Nursing or pregnant women should also avoid RevitaPen treatments, and can discuss their skincare options during a consultation with Dr. Kayastha.
What Happens During RevitaPen Treatment?
RevitaPen treatment can take many forms, whether as a standalone treatment or part of a facial rejuvenation process. In either case, the first step is a deep cleanse of the treatment area to ensure the pores are clear and ready to receive product. Then, a powerful active serum that is customized to your skin’s unique concerns is applied to the area. RevitaPen uses a fresh, sanitized, disposable attachment for each treatment to reduce the risk of infection or transfer of certain conditions. After a new head is attached, the handpiece is applied to the skin and adjusted to a specific depth that benefits your skin best. The RevitaPen technique uses a cross-hatch pattern in order to best address problem areas, and most patients report little pain or discomfort. After the treatment area is completed, the skin is soothed and infused with an effective moisturizer.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
There is no downtime after RevitaPen treatments, and patients usually pursue treatments in packages depending on their specific treatment concerns. These can be repeated every few weeks for best results, and can be used in tandem with injectable or other skin treatments. Most patients notice immediate results after RevitaPen treatments, with noticeable improvement in wrinkles, sagging, and appearance. It’s important to follow any care steps given by your aesthetician after RevitaPen treatments, since the skin may peel during this time.
