What Is the Rejuvapen NXT?
The Rejuvapen NXT is the latest upgrade in the Rejuvapen Microneedling product series offered at Portland, Oregon’s Bridgetown Aesthetics. Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that utilizes a device equipped with tiny needles to create a rapid succession of punctures in the skin. This controlled injury induces collagen production and the formation of new skin cells to make a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
Studies have shown that microneedling is a valuable alternative to more invasive procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and deep chemical peeling, given its expedient post-treatment recovery, limited side effect profile, and significant clinical results.
With the Rejuvapen NXT, you can rest assured that the doctors and highly trained specialists at Bridgetown Aesthetics stay up to date with the latest techniques and technologies. Led by the rejuvenating hands of board-certified Dr. Roby F. Hayes MD, Bridgetown Aesthetics offers a full range of non-invasive aesthetics treatments with medical expertise in a professional, comfortable environment. Our goal is to help you look and feel your best, with treatment plans tailored to meet your specific needs.

How Does the Rejuvapen NXT Work?
Microneedling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself when injured naturally. After an injury, our skin starts the process of dissolving damaged tissue and replacing it with new cells. Microneedling allows for a controlled jumpstart of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precisely targeted micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis without causing any scar tissue to form.

Candidates will not be considered for Rejuvapen NXT microneedling if they:
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding

- Have eczema or psoriasis
- Have had spa treatments in the last twenty-four hours

Patients interested in RejuvaPen microneedling appointments should start by scheduling a consultation at our Portland office. During the consultation, the patient will meet with one of our aestheticians to speak in more detail about the RejuvaPen treatment.
It is important for patients to wait two weeks to a month to have microneedling performed after undergoing treatments like dermal fillers, Botox, or laser treatments. Please also inform the aesthetician of any previous or existing medical conditions. While these will likely not preclude the patient from receiving microneedling with RejuvaPen, it is essential for the aesthetician to know to ensure patient safety.
The aesthetician will examine the patient’s areas of concern. She may also take photographs for further analysis and track the improvement in the appearance of the patient’s skin over time. If she believes that the patient would benefit from microneedling, she will recommend the number of treatments that would best help the patient and provide a price estimate. The price will depend on the size of the area being treated and the number of sessions required. These specifics can only be determined once the aesthetician has had the opportunity to examine the patient’s skin personally.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about the RejuvaPen process or any other procedures we offer. Our knowledgeable staff will use their expertise to make the best recommendation for your case.
A sterile and disposable cartridge containing twelve 33-gauge micro-needles is attached to the tip of the device. Your aesthetician will apply a thin layer of topical serum to your skin and then select the appropriate micro-channeling treatment depth for your skin type. Next, in a gentle motion, your aesthetician will proceed to glide the device across the targeted repair areas. Depending on your level of treatment, a session can last between fifteen minutes to an hour.
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy aura around the treated areas. Total healing time depends on the seriousness of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process. Typically, patients are pink for a couple of days. Most patients fully heal in a day. Many patients report that their skin feels slightly “windburned” during the first day.
After Rejuvapen NXT treatments, the skin becomes firmer and regains elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become firmer, circulation is stimulated, and the skin’s overall condition improves. After the first session, patients often notice that their skin has a healthy pink glow and that their fine lines are significantly reduced.
Botox is the legendary neuromodulator renowned for its wrinkle eliminating properties. Botox blocks the release of the chemical responsible for contracting our muscles. When injected, Botox creates a tighter and younger-looking visage free from wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that essentially fill in the gaps from fine lines and wrinkles as well as provide additional volume to areas where there was none before.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary fat reduction technology that utilizes controlled targeted temperatures to freeze problematic fatty areas. This non-invasive FDA-approved process effectively kills the underlying fat cells without damaging the outermost layer of skin.
A mommy makeover is a combination procedure that blends liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and other treatments to restore a woman’s body back to its pre-pregnancy glory.
Multiple studies have confirmed microneedling to be an overall effective and safe therapeutic option for numerous dermatologic conditions. Needling technology will continue to improve and is worth considering when offering acne scarring treatment given shortened downtime, ease of access, and subjective and objective improvement demonstrated in multiple studies.
