Micro-Needling

Collagen P.I.N. ™

Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is a revolutionary treatment in cosmetic dermatology to remedy the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars.

Micro-needling uses tiny needles to precisely poke small holes into the surface of the skin. These tiny “injuries” are made to stimulate collagen and elastin growth. Once the skin heals and repairs itself, wrinkles and fine lines will look softer and less noticeable. Likewise, topical medications will be able to penetrate further into the epidermal layer of skin and have a stronger effect.

We are proud to use the Collagen P.I.N. ™.

A sterile needle-tip containing anywhere from 12 to 36 tiny micro-needles is attached to the P.I.N. system. Our skincare professionals will apply a thin layer of topical ointment to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your skin’s individual and unique needs. This will allow us to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip or cheeks, the necessary adjustments can easily be made. Then, the Collagen P.I.N. system will be gently glided across the skin in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered, opening up thousands of microscopic channels.

Most Collagen P.I.N. ™ patients experience a healthy, pink glow immediately after the procedure, which lessens dramatically within 24 hours or less. Most patients experience little to no downtime.

Micro-needling with the Collagen P.I.N. ™ can benefit many types of skin that are afflicted with a variety of problems. Fine lines and wrinkles will appear less noticeable, and skin will look younger and refreshed. Skin that has acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation and stretch marks can also benefit from micro-needling.
