Collagen P.I.N.: Effective Skin Rejuvenation

FDA-approved, Collagen P.I.N. (Percutaneous Induction Needling) is an advanced tool for mico-needling that addresses many common skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, aging, sun damaged skin, perioral rhytides, melasma, hyperpigmentation issues, acne scarring and rough texture just to mention a few.

Mico-needling with Collagen P.I.N. is a very effective alternative to other needling devices such as a dermaroller as well as lasers and other ablative treatments. It can also be safely used on all skin types and on most areas of the body including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, legs, abdomen and back.

Typically a series of three to six treatments spaced four weeks apart is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require six or more treatments to achieve the desired results. A consultation with your treatment provider to discuss your individual goals and desires will determine the exact treatment schedule.

Prior to your treatment a topical numbing agent will be applied. The treatment provider will then use the Collagen P.I.N. to automatically insert fine short needles into the surface of the skin in the area(s) you wish to treat. Immediately after your treatment session your skin will look moderately red, similar to a mild sunburn; however, your normal coloring will commonly return within a day or two. A post-treatment skincare regimen based on your individual skin needs will be recommended.

Initial results from a Collagen P.I.N. treatment are typically seen as soon as one to two weeks after the first treatment. Positive results following completion of all the recommended treatments have been reported up to one year later.

Individuals interested in Collagen P.I.N. should consult an experienced skin care provider.
