REJUVAPEN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


Rejuvapen is a microneedling device that is used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, texture, pore size, pigmentation irregularities, and skin elasticity. The device uses very fine needles that create tiny, mostly visually imperceptible, punctures in the upper layer of the skin, and this triggers the body’s healing process and production of collagen. The needles within the Rejuvapen make these shallow punctures at a high rate, and Dr. Zuckerman customizes each treatment to a patient’s particular problem areas, repeating a given area multiple times if needed. Microneedling can also be combined with the “Vampire Facial” where a specific component of the patient’s own blood in rubbed onto the face between successive rounds of microneedling treatment.

Treatments & Uses of Rejuvapen™ Microneedling

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Zuckerman has hundreds of hours of injectables experience and
is an expert injector of Rejuvapen™ Microneedling. In his practice in New York City, the most commonly requested treatments using this injectable include:

Microneedling

Microneedling can help address fine lines, acne scars, skin dullness, pigmentation issues, and more. It can help break up the tethering in the scar, which results in less indentation and greater smoothness on the surface.

Vampire Facial

Dr. Zuckerman performs this treatment, which is a new trend in microneedling combining traditional microneedling with the injection of a component of the blood, platelet rich plasma (PRP). Learn more about Dr. Zuckerman’s Vampire Facial.





Treatment Longevity, Downtime & Preoperative Care with Rejuvapen™ Microneedling

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Treatment Longevity

Results last three to six months, and treatments should be performed regularly as part of an antiaging maintenance routine.

Downtime / Recovery

This treatment has little downtime. Patients may see some pinkness, redness or irritation, but this should resolve within 24-48 hours. You can return to work the following day and wear makeup.

Pretreatment Guidelines

Do not use the following products on the treated area for 3 days before and 3 days after treatment (or until pinkness has subsided): scrubs, exfoliation products, bleaching creams, retinoids (Retin-A) or any similar vitamin A compounds or irritating agents. Ask the staff at Zuckerman Plastic Surgery for recommended products to use during this time.

Dr. Zuckerman recommends that you do not apply any creams, lotions, perfume or makeup on the area to be treated prior to treatment.

Approximate Cost 

$600 to $1200 per treatment depending on the size of the treatment area and if platelet plasma injection is included



Frequently Asked Questions About Rejuvapen™ Microneedling


Are there any possible complications from microneedling?
Similar to any injectable or medical procedure, microneedling has possible risks including bleeding, bruising, infection, scarring, and pigment problems. Generally, these complications are rare, especially when performed in the medical environment of a doctor’s office.

Can I buy my own microneedling product for at-home use?
There are some microneedling products for retail use that allow you to perform the procedure at home. However, the needles used in the Rejuvapen® for professional use are generally longer than those in retail procedures and puncture deeper in the skin’s surface. These deeper punctures increase the effectiveness and rejuvenative capabilities of the procedure beyond what is possible with a retail appartus.
