We all know that prevention is better than cure. So when I heard of Rejuran Healer which can reverse the effects of aging, I was all in. Some of the benefits include, stimulating collagen production and regeneration – leaving skin smoother, refreshed and hydrated.
I went for 3 sessions of this treatment at Dr Edwin Lim’s clinic and absolutely love the effects! Here is what you can expect from this amazing treatment.
But first, what is Rejuran Healer?
It is a non-invasive injectible made of Polynucleotides (PN), derived from Salmon DNA. Who would have thought Salmon DNA can help us turn back the aging clock to achieve that flawless, glowy skin!
So here goes! My first session of Rejuran Healer at Dr Edwin Lim’s clinic @ Changi City Point.
To start off, their super friendly nurse removed all my make up and applied numbing cream to my entire face. This cream has to be on for at least 30 minutes before the treatment can start.
Once the numbing cream took effect, the nurse prepped my skin so Dr Edwin can work his magic on me. I have to say he has a superb pair of steady hands as he spends 30 minutes making micro injections on my face. There are some clinics who use a machine for the injection but Edwin preferred to use his hands as it is more precise. After the treatment, you will see small bumps on your face which might scare you alittle. To help reduce bruising and abit of swelling, Dr Edwin applied some cream and massaged my face and the bumps significantly reduced after an hour. As I did the treatment in the evening, I was advised to go about my usual night time skin care routine but skip any form of mask.
You are not allowed to put on make up right after the treatment but you can do so the next day! Also, swimming, hot yoga and saunas are not recommended for the next 24 hours.
The picture below was taken on Day 3. I only had moisturizer on at the time of this picture.
As you can see, the little bumps were almost gone except for some injection marks which went away after a day or two. I have to be honest that there is downtime to this treatment (about 5 to 7 days) so my advice would be to schedule the session when you have no major events going on for a week.
These was taken a week after my first session. Picture has no filter and no edits. I’m so amazed by the results of only 1 session. My skin was visibly clearer, less oily and absorbs my make up better.
I scheduled my second session of Rejuran Healer about 3 weeks after. Procedure was exactly the same and downtime was about 4 days this time round.
One week after and I was confident enough to leave the house bare-faced. But of course I had sunscreen on. Just look at how dewy and glowy my skin is.
My enlarged pores were significantly reduced, lesser fine lines and check out my rosy cheeks. I used to have naturally cute rosy cheeks when I was younger but they disappeared once I hit my 20s. Thank you Dr Edwin Lim for this miracle treatment!
This was 2 weeks after my second treatment. Again, no filter and no edits done here. I have started using very minimal make up because my skin is clear of blemishes, and glowy so why would I want to hide that! My current make up regime consists of a tinted moisturizer from MAC then topping it off with Fenty Beauty’s concealer for the undereyes. Abit of blusher and eyeshadow to complete my look, then tada! 🙂
What are the benefits of Rejuran Healer?
- Increased skin elasticity and firmness
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Slows down aging by repairing damaged skin cells
- Increased regeneration of skin cells – younger and more radiant skin
- Reduction in pore size
- Increased skin hydration
- Improvement in acne scars
How does it work?
It is injected in a similar fashion to Skinboosters, with a series of precise micro injections into the skin.
How long does each treatment take?
A treatment will take about 1.5 hours. From removal of make up, applying of numbing cream ( having it on for at least 30 minutes) and the actual procedure about 30 minutes.
Is it painful?
My threshold of pain is pretty high so on a scale of 1 to 10, i’d have to say it is at least a 4-5. Each injection feels like a tiny ant-bite but it is tolerable.
How many treatments are required?
According to Dr Edwin, for best results, one should complete 3 sessions spaced 3 weeks to 1 month apart. In my opinion, my skin got about 30% better after 1 session and continued to improve tremendously after the 2nd and 3rd.
Is there any downtime?
Yes. The bumps and needle marks on my face went away completely after 4 to 5 days but it varies for everyone. There will be some slight bruising but not to worry, Dr Edwin will provide a cream so you can massage your skin at least twice a day to speed up the healing process.
The effects of Rejuran Healer varies from person to person. As for me, I felt a significant difference in my skin after 3 sessions.
- Less oily and my skin is able to absorb make up better. No need for touch ups throughout the entire day
- Brighter, clearer and glowy skin (i’m loving this!)
- Lesser fine lines making me look much younger. :p
- My skin is SMOOTH to the touch (its as if I have gone for daily facials)
- Less visible eye bags.
