Rejuran - The Healer
Rejuran Healer (婴儿针) repairs and rejuvenates aging or damaged skin. Unlike hyaluronic acid skinboosters, Rejuran Healer consists of biologically active molecules that stimulates regenerative processes and reduce inflammation. Rejuran Healer is a unique and innovative treatment, and the most recent addition to our our skin rejuvenation toolbox.
Rejuran Healer can be used on the forehead, temples, midface, cheek, chin and neck areas, and is suitable for most people. It can be used as a preventative treatment in younger adults to delay the skin aging process, but is particularly helpful to those with more pronounced effects of aging skin (uneven skin tone and texture, loss of elasticity and fine lines) and those with skin damaged by acne scars.
What is Rejuran?
Consisting of Polynucleotides (PN) suspended in a gel matrix, Rejuran is essentially made up of the components that make up our DNA.
These specific standards of DNA molecules are obtained from a certain breed of salmon (whose DNA make-up mirrors that of the human species most closely), purified and broken up into small fragments.
Salmon DNA has been shown to be safe and compatible in the human body without causing any adverse side effects. The acquired DNA is purified and free of unnecessary immunogenic proteins which may trigger an immune response.
These PNs improve skin elasticity and repairs damaged skin, making it an excellent addition to laser—based treatments.
How does it work?
Growth factor secretion is stimulated and resultant
DNA fragments injected enable quicker cell and tissue regeneration
The product acts as a scaffold for the growth of your cellular network, providing the framework for quicker regeneration
What Benefits Does Rejuran Healer Have?
Rejuran PN/PDRN’s healing properties have several beneficial effects on the skin:
Improved skin elasticity and hydration
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
Skin repair and skin barrier function
Skin climate normalization – regulation of oil control and skin thickness
Improved skin tone
Improved skin texture
What can Rejuran treat?
Fine lines and Wrinkles
Pores and dull skin
What to expect after treatment
What is the treatment process like?
The face is cleansed
Numbing cream is applied for approximately 30 minutes
Rejuran is injected into the skin via a very small needle and can take about 20 minutes
Cooling with cryotherapy or a post-rejuran LED light is used to reduce the downtime
The tiny welts formed by the injection are visible for 24 to 48 hours. Any tiny bruising or pin point bleeding will also settle during that time
Improvements occur after approximately 4 weeks, but get better as you complete the second and then the third session (at 4 weekly intervals for the first 3 sessions)
Maintenance is advised at 3 to 4 monthly intervals after the initial 3 monthly sessions
Is there a difference between Rejuran and hyaluronic acid Skin boosters?
The term “skin booster” refers to a procedure where a stimulatory material is injected superficially into the skin to promote healing and hydration. As such, both Rejuran and hyaluronic acid (HA) can be used as “skin boosters”. The effects of each, however, are intrinsically different:
Hyaluronic acid skin boosters act as a lifting and hydrating agent. It’s main purpose is to volumize and hydrate the skin.
Rejuran Healer contains biologically active compounds that only mildly hydrates the skin, but more importantly, naturally stimulates the skin’s reparative capabilities. Its effects are slow to show, but remain visible for a more prolonged period of time.
As such, both have a role in dermal rejuvenation and can actually be combined for optimal results!
Which begs the question below:
Can Rejuran be combined with other treatments?
Yes! Rejuran acts as a synergistic simulator and food supply for skin growth and remodeling. As such, combining Rejuran with the following treatments can optimise results for skin rejuvenation, scar treatment, skin dyspigmentation, botox, and even hydration (with non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid skin boosters).
Frequently Asked Questions:
Who is suitable for Rejuran?
Patients who are keen to:
Improve skin tone
Improve skin texture
Prevent skin aging
Smoothen acne scars
How often will I need to perform this treatment?
Rejuran stimulates skin growth and its effects are seen over a period of time.
The initial intensive period involves a series of monthly treatments for 3-4 sessions.
Because the skin is a dynamic, living organ, maintenance treatment is required every 4 to 6 months to keep the skin in its optimal state.
What can i expect after treatment?
Within 1 week: Some improvement in skin texture as the gel matrix hydrates underlying skin
Within 1 month: Pores are smaller and skin texture improved
Within 2 months: Skin elasticity improves, resulting in reduced appearance of fine wrinkles. Skin pigmentation issues may also show improvement
Best results are seen typically 4-6 weeks after the third treatment.
How long does each procedure take?
Each procedure typically involves 40 minutes of topical numbing and 30 minutes of procedure time, so an estimated time of 1.5 hr of your time will be required.
Does the procedure hurt?
After a sufficient time with topical numbing cream, the procedure produces minimal to moderate discomfort. The injection itself does not hurt, but the infusion of Rejuran under the skin does produce a slight stinging sensation that is bearable
