Rejuvapen is our skin treatment procedure that uses high-level technology to make your skin become firmer and regain its elasticity. It is a state-of-the-art microneedling system that is extremely powerful yet soft to the touch to combat minor skin blemishes. It is a minimally invasive procedure that will improve the appearance of your skin, including eliminating acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is a fast, simple solution to restore the natural beauty of your skin. Done with tiny medical-grade needles, the device creates tiny gaps in the skin so that collagen production can increase and allow the elastin fibers to strengthen and smooth the skin.
Dr. Daniel Brown, MD, FACS is a board-certified plastic surgeon who strives to provide the utmost quality in results while maintaining a friendly and nonchalant vibe inside our tranquil offices throughout greater San Diego. It’s never been easier to seek out treatment at one of our offices in Carmel Valley/Del Mar, La Jolla, and Coronado. Or you can simply call (619) 461-1500.
Rejuvapen is a highly precise treatment that uses small, sterile needles stored inside a cartridge. It is an automated process that moves slowly over the treatment area. The treatment creates microchannels deep in the skin. Its process is known as Collagen Induction Therapy. It triggers a natural healing response and increases collagen production and elastin to rejuvenate and improve your skin’s texture.  The most commonly treated area is the face to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. However, it can be used to strengthen and tighten the skin on the forehead, cheeks, lower eyelid, chin, and along the jawline. Rejuvapen can also be used to improve the appearance of stretch marks or superficial scarring on other parts of the body.  Patients love the Rejuvapen experience because of its proven results. You can certainly count on reduced fine lines and wrinkles, smaller pores, and an overall improvement in the appearance of the epidermis.

Dr. Daniel J. Brown, M.D. is a board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon who specializes in facial rejuvenation, body contouring, breast enhancement, and skin treatments. His innate knowledge and expertise in human anatomy have placed him as one of the most sought out plastic surgeons in the area. He will champion your cause and bring forth remarkable results for you.
Your consultation will take place at one of our three offices located throughout the San Diego area. In our North County communities, you can visit us at La Jolla’s Scripps/Ximed building and the Torrey Hills Medical and Dental Plaza in Carmel Valley/Del Mar. In the San Diego/South Bay area, you can visit us in the oceanfront community Coronado, just one block away from Centennial Park. From the moment you walk into our offices, you will find solace in knowing that our priority is you. We are committed to giving your skin some TLC.
You will be greeted with Dr. Brown and his wonderful staff with open arms as we find your pathway to silky, supple skin. We will ask you a few questions regarding your health and medication intake. After that is where Dr. Brown will meet with you to turn the floor over to you. We want to know your concerns and what we can do to help. After that, Dr. Brown will examine your skin, paying close attention to the skin elasticity and texture. Your personal consultation will conclude with a treatment plan that works for you.
Little is needed to prepare for the treatment. There are a few small things Dr. Brown recommends patients to do beforehand. You should:
- Avoid certain medications and supplements including blood-thinners
- Do not smoke or drink alcohol 1 week prior
- Please refrain from tanning beds and prolonged sun exposure 2 weeks before
- Come to the office without makeup or moisturizer
We’ll get you situated on your big day. Dr. Brown may apply a topical numbing cream to maximize your comfort. He will start the process by moving the device gently along the skin. Rejuvapen will do its work with its nine precisely spaced micro needles that will create tiny perforations in the top two layers of your skin.  It starts a response in your body to ramp up collagen production. Rejuvapen revives your skin and starts the healing process. Your skin will become silkier, smoother, and firmer. That also means your fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, pores will begin to diminish, and you will start to look younger. The entire process should take around 30 minutes. Many patients say the treatment has a slight tingling sensation but is not painful.
The minimally invasive procedure allows patients to enjoy a short downtime. In fact, after your treatment, you are free to return to your life just the way you left it. That means you may return to work, drive home, or run errands. However, don’t push yourself. You may want to rest up for 1-2 days if you feel you need to relax. Most patients will experience some degree of redness at the treatment site that will last up to two days after treatment.  The skin might feel tight and itchy for 1-2 days.
Patients will notice firmer skin almost immediately after but full results will start to show in subsequent weeks to allow for the swelling and irritation to subside. To optimize your healing, you may be given a skincare routine to facilitate the recovery process and maintain results. Depending on your skin condition, we recommend 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
Now that you have got those pesky fine lines and wrinkles under control, why not tackle another part of the body? If you have sagging skin on the neck and the lower part of the face then you may benefit from a FaceTite treatment. This minimally invasive treatment helps eliminate fat, tighten up loose skin, and stimulates collagen production in the lower part of the face and neck.
The final cost of your treatment will depend on several factors. Things to consider when calculating the cost are the extent of your condition and the number of sessions required to perfect your ideal aesthetic.
