Mint Rejuvapen NXT micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation technique. It creates thousands of controlled microscopic needle incisions in the papillary and reticular dermis using specifically designed sterile devices. The goal is to puncture the stratum corneum and induce a controlled injury response within tissue through physical and mechanical trauma. The release of growth factors through pin point bleeding induce scarless healing while promoting strong type 1collagen.
For our Micro-needling Collagen Induction Therapy treatments, we use The Rejuvapen NXT Micro-needling system which has been developed in the USA by Refine USA LLC. Refine USA has been a market leader in the manufacturing and distribution of premier aesthetic technologies for over 5 years. It is fully FDA approved. The Rejuvapen system not only offers you a superior micro-needling system, but also proprietary branded skincare carefully developed to enhance the results of the procedure.
