What Is Rejuran S?
The Rejuran S consists of polynucleotides (PN), is a more concentrated version of the Rejuran Healer, which makes it excellent for treating acne scars.
Polyneucleotide chains are DNA fragments that repair damaged dermal (skin) cells and assist in collagen stimulation.
What Is The Difference Between Rejuran Healer And Rejuran S?
Rejuran S and Rejuran Healer are both made of polynucleotides (PN), which promotes skin cell growth through inducing fibroblast and collagen production.
The difference between the two would be that Rejuran S is more concentrated and more viscous in texture than Rejuran Healer – these properties allow the Rejuran S be specially suited for acne scar treatments.
- Promotes tissue restoration, reconstruction and improvement of physical appearance.
- Ideal for depressed acne scars.
- Improving elasticity, turgidity and tonicity of skin.
- Used all over face as a skinbooster.
How Does Rejuran S Improve Acne Scars?
Acne scars are caused by deep inflammation and cyst formation with scarring.
After inflammation and injury to the skin by acne, the skin will try to heal itself by producing collagen to replace the ones that have been damaged.
In some cases, optimal healing might not occur, and may instead form twisted bands between the skin and the SMAS layer, which causes the skin to change shape, get pulled downwards and sink in, forming a deep, pitted scar.
Rejuran S helps to reduce the appearance of acne scarring by inducing collagen reproduction and healing of the skin.
The texture of Rejuran S is more viscous and gel-like compared to Rejuran Healer, and acts like a filler to fill up sunken scars, and at the same time, the rejuvenating properties of Rejuran S will repair the skin at the dermis.
How Is The Procedure Done And Is It Painful?
Before the procedure, topical numbing cream will be applied to make the process more comfortable.
After subcision to break up the scar tissue (fibrous bands), Rejuran S is injected under the scar in the dermis layer.
Rejuran S repairs dermal skin cells, and stimulates normal collagen production under the scar, resulting in a much shallower scar.
Will There Be Downtime?
Rejuran S injections under the skin with a subcision has a downtime of about 2 days of small injection marks.
Occasionally, mild bruising can also occur with deeper subcision.
Who Is Suitable For Rejuran S?
Rejuran S is suitable to treat all types of acne scarring, such as box scars, rolling scars, and ice-pick scars.
How Often Should I Get Rejuran S Done?
3-4 treatments are recommended for acne scarring treatment with the Rejuran S, each done one month apart.
A better estimate on the number of treatments needed and synergistic combination with other Acne Scar treatments is possible after a personal consult with Dr. Justin Boey.
