Delivering microneedling procedures through the Collagen P.I.N. (Percutaneous Induction Needling) offers efficient, safe, and effective treatment for noticeably younger looking skin.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling works by producing up to 1 million microscopic needle columns in the dermis of the skin which stimulates the skin to repair. This also encourages the production of new collagen and elastin and the blood supply to the dermis is enhanced. In addition, microneedling creates pathways to introduce appropriate serums into the skin.
What can Microneedling help?
The Micro-Needle Collagen P.I.N. can be used on all skin types to address:
- Acne Scars
- Stretch Marks
- All Types of Scars
- And More…
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Normally a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended, depending upon your skin concerns and area of correction. A treatment series will be developed by our estheticians specifically for your skin concerns. Treatments are usually spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Patients with deep wrinkles, intense sun damage, or any type of deep scaring usually require 6 or more treatments for optimal results.
Does the Treatment Hurt?
Collagen P.I.N micro-needling is a very comfortable procedure. Prior to your actual treatment a topical numbing agent (Lidocaine) will be applied to your skin by your medical provider.
How Long Until I Will See Results?
Following your treatment, you’ll notice some redness and mild swelling but that will subside in a day or two. Your skin will then have a healthier, more radiant glow with results continuing to improve over the coming weeks. Individual outcomes may vary but most patients will begin to see the effectiveness of the treatment after their first visit.
