WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy or PCIT) 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. Click above and let us help you find a Collagen P.I.N. provider in your area today.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM THE DERMAL NEEDLING ROLLERS OF THE PAST…?

Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your skincare provider to vary the depth of penetration throughout the entire treatment.

One of the many drawbacks is that dermal rollers have a fixed needle or penetration depth, 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 is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your provider to vary the depth of penetration throughout the entire treatment.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

When used correctly resurfacing lasers can be a great tool for treating aging skin. However, lasers use focused light to produce heat that destroys certain colors of pigment and vaporizes skin.

This is great for targeting dark spots but often leads to complications when treating patients with naturally dark skin. Collagen P.I.N. ™ breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat. When the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a much safer, more comfortable, more consistent treatment. Most Collagen P.I.N. ™ patients have a healthy pink glow immediately after the procedure, which lessens dramatically within 24 hours or less. Most patients are back to work the same day and experience little to no down time.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 or 24 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Collagen P.I.N. ™. Your skincare professional 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.
