RejuvaPen is a micro needling system that uses a specialized “pen” that contains a cartridge with nine small needles. But please do not let this turn you off! These are extremely tiny microneedles that lead to great results. Of all of our skin treatments available at Acqua Blu Medical Spa in Pittsburgh, PA, RejuvaPen is one of the most effective.

The RejuvaPen is an ideal treatment if you are looking for a procedure to treat scarring, especially if you have scarring due to acne. RejuvaPen’s needles work to break up the tethering in the scar, which results in less indentation and greater smoothness on the surface. Essentially, RejuvaPen stimulates the body’s natural healing powers and gives the scar a second chance to repair itself – without surgery or lasers, much like our non laser skin tightening.
Should I use RejuvaPen?
RejuvaPen is most commonly used at Acqua Blu Medical Spa to treat acne scarring, but it can be used for many different types of scarring on other parts of the body. For example, stretch marks, which are a type of scar, can be treated with RejuvaPen. Another common skin concern we have been using the RejuvaPen is for melasma, which can’t be treated with lasers. If you are looking to reduce the effects of aging, please consider our dermal fillers to treat sagging and sunken skin.
With the RejuvaPen, it is important to understand that scarring is permanent, and we can’t completely erase a scar. However, we can definitely use RejuvaPen to improve their appearance.
What should I expect?
During your appointment, our medical aesthetician may apply a topical numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort. The cream will be applied 20 minutes prior to the appointment.
The treatment itself feels a bit like sandpaper going over the skin. Some scarred areas can be more sensitive than others, so parts of the session can be less comfortable.
After the treatment, patients generally don’t feel any discomfort, although the treated area is likely to be sensitive. We instruct patients to use mild, gentle products and sunscreen after the treatment. Makeup can be applied the next day.
Patients should expect to be very red the day of and the day after a RejuvaPen treatment. Your provider will recommend scheduling two days of downtime and staying out of the sun. For example, you can schedule your appointment on Friday and use the weekend as downtime. The redness is typically gone in 48 hours.
How long do the results last?
RejuvaPen isn’t like other temporary cosmetic procedures that require maintenance. RejuvaPen is about ongoing improvement.
We recommend starting with three RejuvaPen sessions. You’re likely to see incremental improvement with each session. After completing the series, many patients continue with one or two additional sessions because they’re so pleased with the results.
In other words, patients don’t come back because of a regression; they come back because they see the improvement and want to continue the progress.
