and enable practitioners to expand their practice and drive revenue growth.
Microneedling is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments today, and helping to drive this trend is Refine USA’s Rejuvapen NXT, which has just earned FDA clearance for the treatment of facial wrinkles. At a price point and cost of use that is consider- ably less than other FDA cleared systems available today, it makes a great addition to every aesthetic practitioner’s toolkit.
This minimally invasive treatment uses microscopic perforations in the dermis to invoke a healing response and promote new collagen production. Refine USA has truly raised the bar with the Rejuvapen NXT by adding technological advances that allow the practitioner to customize treatments with multiple speed and depth adjustments while ensuring safety and biocompatibility.
The Rejuvapen NXT is designed and manufactured in the U.S. It was designed with patient safety as its primary goal and has passed multiple electrical and safety analyses for biocompatibility, including testing for irritation, cytotoxicity and sensitization, ensuring none of the materials used are harmful to patients. This includes design verification and validation testing. The product is also certified according to ISO/ IEC Guide 17067 and in accordance with ANSI/AAMI ES60601.
Bertica Rubio, MD, of Rejuvenate Image Restoration (Redlands, Calif.) enjoys the versatility of the device. “We are seeing fantastic results with very little to no downtime at a fraction of the cost of other modalities we typically use.”
Robert Allen, MD, of Arizona Wellness Center (Mesa, Ariz.) agreed. “With microneedling, precision is everything,” he began.“We love the infinite dial; it allows us to dial in very precise treatments for different areas and procedures. Also, with nine speeds, we have the ability to customize the patient’s experience to produce the best results possible.”
With more people opting for natural skin regenerating treatments, Dr. Allen finds that microneedling meets this demand. “The Rejuvapen is used to create microtrauma to trick your body into regenerating new tissue. This process activates the platelets in your body, and then subsequently calls upon the stem cells and growth factors to make new tissue. The cells can then differentiate into collagen, fat, dermis, etc. You are basically tricking your body into reverse aging by regenerating tissue,” he explained.
According to William Song, MD, of Omni Aesthetics (Oakland, N.J.) the Rejuvapen NXT is a professional grade device. “I have worked with multiple other pens and I appreciate that this pen was designed from the ground up to meet or exceed all the FDA requirements for safety and efficacy,” he expressed. “Our patients notice immediately that this treatment feels substantial and more importantly, they can actually see the difference in their skin.”
Other products available from Refine USA include Purespin PRP, Ontogeny C Growth Factors, Xoglo Exosomes by Kimera Labs and the RP Complex skincare line.
