Microneedling Collagen P.I.N.
Percutaneous Induction Needling, or Microneedling, is a type of cosmetic procedure used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles among other issues. Our Skin Care Specialist uses the Collagen P.I.N. to create small, controlled wounds which then stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The process causes less trauma to the skin than chemical, laser, or invasive treatments resulting in a faster healing time and, because the skin’s natural processes produce the results, there are fewer risks involved in microneedling.
A topical numbing agent is applied to skin prior to beginning the treatment. Then, a small roller equipped with fine needles is rolled across the face creating micro-injuries to the surface of the skin. These small wounds take in the serum while also stimulating fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the cells which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These cells stay activated for up to a full year, resulting in younger, tauter skin.
Microneedling has been proven to aid in the improvement of many common skin issues. Acne scars, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, large pores, and stretch marks have all been improved by microneedling. In addition, skin products work better after a session. Often the products consumers buy for their skin don’t work as well as they should because they are not being fully absorbed. By creating micro-injuries along the surface of the skin, products have an easier path to enter the skin and work to their fullest potentials.
Severe acne scarring, stretch marks, burn scars, and even C-section and surgical scars have been improved by microneedling. Depending on the severity of the scars, more than one treatment may be necessary to achieve visible results. In many cases, 4-6 treatments are sufficient to lessen the appearance of scars.
