Microneedling: All About Collagen P.I.N.

As we get older, cellular renewal slows and collage production gradually declines. These changes can produce undesirable effects such as fine lines, skin laxity, dullness, and roughness.

Collagen P.I.N. microneedling is designed to stimulate new collagen growth, rejuvenate skin, and counteract signs of aging.

Continue reading to learn all about Collagen P.I.N., including what it is, how it works, and treatment advantages.

What Is Automated Microneedling?

Automated microneedling with Collagen P.I.N. is a nonsurgical treatment that creates controlled mechanical injuries to promote cellular renewal and collagenesis.

The treatment utilizes a tip of surgical-grade microneedles that penetrate tissue at different depths, without causing unnecessary damage to healthy cells.

In doing so, Collagen P.I.N. stimulates the production of collagen and corrects a variety of skin concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma, age spots, dullness, roughness, enlarged pores, acne scars, stretch marks, and skin laxity.

How Does Collagen P.I.N. Work?

Collagen P.I.N. is uniquely designed to create microscopic holes in the skin, which trigger the body’s natural ability to repair itself.

As fibroblasts tend to these controlled wounds, they also synthesize new collagen and elastin.

This strengthens the skin’s foundation and remodels tissue from the inside out.

What Happens During a Microneedling Treatment?

Collagen P.I.N. microneedling is performed in an office setting and begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. The numbing cream is typically removed after 30 minutes, and skin is thoroughly cleansed.

Then, the provider applies a hyaluronic acid serum and gently glides the automated microneedling device over the skin.

This process not only creates mechanical injuries, it also results in microchannels that readily absorb hyaluronic acid.

What Are the Advantages of Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling?

Unlike microneedling rollers, Collagen P.I.N. employs a cartridge of 36 sterile microneedles that can vary in depth.

Accordingly, providers can adjust the depth of penetration throughout the procedure to accommodate for thinner-skinned areas, like the forehead and crow’s feet, and thicker-skinned areas, like the cheeks and décolletage.

The ability to select the appropriate needle depth also aids in tailoring treatment to each patient’s concerns and goals.
