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 stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. As your skin repairs itself, your dermis becomes thicker and the appearance of wrinkles softens. 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.
How is Collagen P.I.N. different from Lasers?
Collagen P.I.N. ™ breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat or light. When the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a safe, comfortable, consistent treatment. No heat also equals less downtime! 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 out to dinner the same evening and experience little to no down time.
How is the procedure done?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 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.
