The evolution of Micro-Needling.
Collagen P.I.N.™ is a Percutaneous Induction Therapeutic Micro-Needling Device that opens up a whole new horizon to skin treatments. It scientifically delivers the “flawless” results using a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of growth factors, new collagen & elastin. A unique automated process helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for results than more traditional micro-needling therapies. Collagen P.I.N. is the next step in the scientific evolution of aesthetics. This evolutionary device has three times more needles any other device on the market.
WHAT SKIN CONCERNS DOES THE COLLAGEN P.I.N.™ TREAT?
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Ageing skin
- Pigmentation / Uneven Skin Tone
- Acne Scars
- Body Scars
- Stretch Marks
- Crows Feet
- Sagging Skin
- Open pores / Improve Skin Texture
WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?
Automated Micro-Needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical serums, and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Collagen P.I.N. is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N.™ DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL DERMA ROLLERS?
Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks is that dermal rollers have a fixed needle or penetration depth (i.e. 0.5mm), which is not very conducive when treating an area like the face which requires different depths due to the thickness of skin tissue, which varies in depth tremendously depending on the area being treated. Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N.™ has an adjustable needle depth so as depth of penetration can vary throughout the entire treatment. This will allows your aesthetician 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, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck, and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers.
HOW IT WORKS
Prior to your treatment with the Collagen P.I.N., the medical provider will apply a topical numbing agent. Most people say they feel almost nothing after having been pretreated with a topical numbing agent.
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 or 24 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Collagen P.I.N.™. Your aesthetician or nurse will apply a thin layer of topical serum to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the Collagen P.I.N. will be gently glided across the skin in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. This results in thousands of microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area AND allows topicals and serums to reach the true targeted areas, producing a much more efficacious result.
Collagen P.I.N.™ 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.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH COLLAGEN PIN?
Collagen P.I.N.™ can be used on all skin types to address a variety of concerns, most areas of the body can be treated including:
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.
RESULTS WITHOUT DOWNTIME
Collagen P.I.N.™ is considered a no downtime treatment. Skin will look slightly pink to moderately red after treatment but this should settle within a few hours. Fibroblasts – the cells that synthesize new collagen – are active for up to as much as one year after just one Collagen P.I.N. treatment. New collagen and elastin produce younger, healthier, plumper, and firmer skin, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars for an overall better tone and texture.
