Premier Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer Rejuvapen® as one of our many non-surgical skin care treatments. Rejuvapen® is a breakthrough treatment that promotes smoother skin and reduces the appearance of scars and wrinkles by using the body’s natural healing processes. Rejuvapen® uses microneedling, a precise treatment that is becoming a popular option for acne scar treatment, surgical scar removal, stretch mark removal, and other skin conditions.
Choosing a medical spa that is overseen by a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to get the results you want from a Rejuvapen® procedure.

How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling uses tiny needles to puncture the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing response. It results in firmer, clearer skin. The tiny, pen-shaped Rejuvapen® device uses nine small microneedles. As your trained skin care provider moves the Rejuvapen® device around the treatment area, these microneedles penetrate the skin. The holes they create are too small to be seen, but they trigger the skin’s healing process. The skin begins to produce new stores of collagen and elastin, which are two of the fundamental building blocks of smooth, healthy skin.
Is Microneedling An Ideal Treatment For Me?
Rejuvapen® is a versatile treatment that can help most patients seeking non-surgical treatment for any number of skin conditions. Rejuvapen® microneedling may be right for you if you want to repair and improve the appearance of the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and creases
- Surgical and other scars
- Mild stretch marks
Recovery And Downtime
After the microneedling procedure in Pittsburgh, most patients experience some redness, similar to a mild sunburn, that lasts 24-48 hours after the treatment. Mild bleeding and minor bruising may occur during the treatment, and skin may feel tight or itchy for one to two days after the procedure. Although most patients notice healthier looking skin right away, it can take four to eight weeks for the most visible signs of skin regeneration to appear.
A single treatment can provide noticeable results, but for optimal results, we recommend a series of three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Final results should be visible approximately three months after the procedure.
