Collagen P.I.N is a method of inducing a controlled injury into the skins dermal & epidermal junction which induces growth factors, new collagen and elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling, lasers or any other ablative treatment. Thus, protecting the skins cell growth making for quicker healing and higher rates of success.
Collagen P.I.N can safely treat all skin types to address a variety of concerns. Most areas of the body can be treated unless your practitioner determines otherwise
Typically a series of 3-4 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 6-8week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require up to 6 treatments to achieve the desired result.
Prior to your treatment your practitioner will apply a topical numbing agent. A majority of patients report feeling very little to no pain at all once the agent has been applied.
Collagen P.I.N produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby, promoting new skin cells to the surfaced. As our skin ages our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at home skin care regime. New collagen and elastin has been documented from just one treatment as much as one year later.
A majority of patients see results after just one treatment. Individual results may vary depending on individual skin health. Most commonly patients report seeing positive changes as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. However, change is normally noted within a few days.
Collagen P.I.N is generally considered a no downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment your skin will look moderately red such as a light sunburn. You practitioner will recommend a skincare regime post treatment based on your individual skin. This will also help with any redness you might experience due to the treatment.
