CHICAGO, Sept. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeannie Heinz, Executive VP of Delivery My Grub, suffered severe burns to 30% of her body when a disgruntled former employee attempted to torch the company's office. Heinz was attempting to take the gas canister away from the perpetrator when she slipped on fuel he had already poured on the floor. Thanks to the efforts of Stroger Hospital's Trauma and Burn Unit, Heinz survived this heinous attack, but her recovery from the physical and emotional scars has been slow and arduous.
When Rebecca Bell, CEO of RBELL Medical and creator of the innovative CleoPen, learned of Heinz's harrowing story, she volunteered to help in her recovery in whatever way possible. She consulted with Dr. David Krause, a surgeon based in Kankakee, Illinois and a proponent of RBELL Medical products, who agreed that The CleoPen could help minimize Heinz's tissue damage and scarring, while restoring her natural skin tone. The CleoPen is an all-in-one cosmetic medical device capable of providing collagen induction therapy (CIT), platelet rich plasma (PRP) and micropigmentation.
"It is working!" exclaimed Heinz. "When Rebecca Bell first approached me with this idea, I was not exactly excited about being poked thousands of times with needles! Then she explained that she would be working with a physician who would not only oversee the process but also manage the pain with a topical anesthetic often used with CIT. The pain was surprisingly minimal. Ms. Bell also explained how CIT, PRP and micropigmentation could possibly work to help with the scarring."
Collagen induction therapy works by creating millions of microscopic breaks in the epidermal layer, stimulating the skin to produce collagen and rebuild itself stronger than before. When combined with PRP, this process is further accelerated. PRP sends the body's natural repair mechanisms into high gear, creating collagen and elastin at a rate of up to 1000% faster than normal.
Burns like those suffered by Heinz present a special case, as the underlying pigmentation is significantly altered. Because she is of Asian descent, her skin pigment does not respond well to the standard laser treatments used to smooth scar tissue. The CleoPen, however, is equally effective with all skin types. The device enables a physician to perform micropigmentation, a procedure that camouflages scar tissue, helping it to blend seamlessly with nearby healthy skin.
"The introduction of The CleoPen and the RBELL Beauty line has provided an effective results for overall skin rejuvenation such as fine lines, scarring and even sagging skin above the knees and elbows," said Dr. Krause, who offers the complete line of RBELL Medical products as part of his practice.
