What is Rejuran S?
The Rejuran S is a more concentrated version of the Rejuran Healer. It contains polynucleotide (PN) that provides a structural scaffold to induce wound repair, collagen remodelling and has anti-inflammatory effects. This makes it excellent for treating acne scarring.
Rejuran S is Korean FDA-approved and Singapore HSA-approved for medical use.
How is Rejuran S different from Rejuran Healer?
Rejuran S and Rejuran Healer are both made of polynucleotides (PN), which promotes skin cell growth through inducing fibroblast and collagen production. The difference is that Rejuran S is more concentrated and more viscous in texture than Rejuran Healer, thus making it more suitable for treating acne scarring.
|Improves elasticity, turgidity and tonicity of skin
|Promotes tissue restoration, reconstruction and improvement of physical appearance.
|Used all over face for skin rejuvenation
|Optimized for depressed and acne scars and used specifically on areas with scars, such as acne scars or chickenpox scars.
How does Rejuran improve 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. Skin get pulled downwards and sink in, forming a depressed scar.
Rejuran S reduces 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. At the same time, the rejuvenating properties of Rejuran S will repair the skin at the dermis.
How Is Rejuran S Procedure Done And Is It Painful?
Before the procedure, topical numbing cream will be applied to make the process more comfortable. Thereafter, subcision is done to break up the scar tissue (fibrous bands). Lastly, 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.
Is There Downtime for Rejuran S Acne Scar Treatment?
Rejuran S injections under the skin with subcision has a downtime of about 2-5 days of small injection marks. Occasionally, mild bruising can also occur with deeper subcision. However, this can be covered easily with the use of concealer or foundation.
Who Is Suitable For Rejuran S?
Rejuran S is suitable to treat most types of acne scarring such as box scars, rolling scars, and ice-pick scars.
Acne scarring is also commonly treated with skin resurfacing procedures such as fractional CO2 Lasers. When used in combination with Rejuran S, results are much more effective. Upon consultation with our doctor, the best course of treatment will be recommend.
What should I look out for when doing a Rejuran treatment?
1. Always do a thorough research before committing. There are fake rejuran products circulating in the market which may do even more harm than good. Hence, if a deal is too good to be true, it usually is.
2. Just like fillers, there are certain skills required for the injection of rejuran. The skills of the doctor is very important – the product has to be placed within a specific area of the skin tissue to produce optimal results.
3. Rejuran treatment is very commonly combined with other modalities (i.e. laser treatments) to produce optimal results. Deciding on the right treatment combination requires a “good eye” and “skills” by the doctor administering the product and treatment.
How much Rejuran S do I need for each treatment?
This will be assessed by the doctor upon consultation or even during the treatment. Unlike Rejuran Healer that contains 2ml in each syringe, Rejuran S only contains 1 ml per syringe. Depending on the severity of the condition, some patients may require 1-2 syringes for each treatment.
How many times do I have to do this treatment?
Similar to Rejuran Healer, we recommend a minimum of 3 to 4 treatment sessions at the start, with a space of 2-4 weeks between each sessions. There are a number of patients who may require more than 3 sessions at the beginning. The doctor will usually assess your condition and concerns prior to the treatment or even during the course of the treatment as results for each patient may vary.
