As time goes on, the structure of our skin naturally begins to change. Wrinkles, sagging, and discoloration are just some of these changes. Fortunately, while many people dislike the changes they see taking place on their skin, many of these processes can be minimized or even partially reversed through the use of exciting new skin enhancement techniques.
Micro-needling is an innovative skin rejuvenation method that offers satisfying results without the need for risky surgery or significant downtimes.
The technique creates many tiny punctures in the skin. These punctures, while largely invisible to the naked eye, prompt your body into delivering fresh collagen and elastin to the treatment site. In effect, this forces your body to resurface your skin. Old skin cells are replaced with fresh, healthy ones.
Micro-needling helps turn over old skin cells in favor of new ones. As a result of a micro-needling treatment, you can expect to see diminished fine lines and wrinkles and smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Collagen P.I.N. Therapy
Collagen P.I.N. is a collagen induction micro-needling device that leads to the amazing results seen in laser treatments and some surgeries. The device is safer than commercially available dermal rollers. This is because it uses sterile, single-use needle tips specially designed to offer superior clinical results. Collagen P.I.N. works for patients of all skin types.
One advantage of Collagen P.I.N. is the speed at which the device moves. Since the needles penetrate more quickly, the process is much more comfortable for the patient. In fact, most patients experience the process as no more than a tingling sensation.
The Collagen P.I.N. Treatment Process
We normally begin by applying a topical serum to the treatment area. This is usually a hyaluronic acid agent that helps the device pass more smoothly across the surface of your skin. Hyaluronic acid also helps to internally moisturize and plump your skin, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. This application takes advantage of the fact that the Collagen P.I.N. treatment process forms thousands of tiny punctures in the skin, allowing topical agents to access deeper layers of your skin.
Many patients often benefit from multiple Collagen P.I.N. treatments, since each additional treatment leads to a further enhancement of skin quality. While multiple treatments are beneficial, you must wait a few weeks between treatments to allow your skin time to deposit fresh collagen and elastin to the treatment sites. This ensures that your skin has time to heal properly before a new treatment, which in turn ensures the best results for you.
