Collagen PIN Microneedling Treatment
We are very excited to introduce the next generation Collagen Induction treatment. Innovative and effective, Collagen PIN activates cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing common skin problems such as acne scars, fine lines, photo-aging, dull skin, poor texture, stretch marks and body scars.
The Collagen PIN is most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market and we are the ONLY practice in the Metro west area to offer this exciting treatment.
What is it and how does it work?
The Collagen PIN falls somewhere in the middle of a corrective laser, like Fraxel, and of a maintenance treatment like chemical peels and Microdermabrasion.
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy. The tip of the Collagen PIN contains sterile micro-pins that are used to create micro-injury sites at precise depths in the skin. This treatment makes use of the skin’s natural healing process to stimulate collagen, growth factors and elastin production. The result is a reduction in the appearance of textural issues.
Who is a good candidate for the treatments?
One of the awesome things about the P.I.N is that it can be used on all skin types on any part of the body. That’s right….NO restrictions!
How many treatments will I need?
Typically a series of 3-6 Collagen P.I.N. treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced in 4-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
Will the Collagen P.I.N. procedure hurt?
Prior to your treatment with collagen, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical numbing agent. Most people feel almost nothing after having been pretreated with a topical numbing agent.
What will I look like after my treatment?
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. We have you go home with a post care kit containing skin care products which are 100% paraben free, gluten free and vegan, which will greatly minimize these symptoms and enhance your overall results.
Can I use makeup after treatment?
Directly after your treatment, we recommend using only mineral-based foundation, as it cannot build bacteria. You may go back to your regular foundation 4 days post-treatment.
How long will it take for me to see results?
Most patients see results after the first treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. It is common to see positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Often, change is noted within just a few days!!!
How long will my Collagen P.I.N. results last?
This produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to surface. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at-home skin care regimen that includes a daily Retinoid product. We can help you determine the best suited home care regimen for your skin type. New collagen & elastin formation in the skin are documented as visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. However, a series of treatments is typically recommended for best results.
