This outstanding device from the USA is by far the most advanced micro needling advice on the market. It has more needles and deeper penetration into the skin than any other devices, with a total of 36 micro needles and ability to penetrate to 3mm rather than the usual 0.5mm. This microneedling triggers a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin by the skin.
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 appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. 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. Growth Factor Rejuvenating Complex is injected leading to remarkable levels of improvement in skin rejuvenation and anti-aging, fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin laxity, tone and texture is improved and this improves acne scarring, stretch marks and hyper pigmentation.
It has minimal downtime, is a quick process and allows your skin to make more collagen for up to a YEAR after just one treatment!
It can be repeated every 6 weeks if desired to maximise collagen and elastin production.
How is the Collagen P.I.N different from other rollers/microneedling devices?
Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks of dermal rollers is the fixed needle or penetration depth (i.e. 0.5mm) which is not very conducive when treating an area like the face which requires different depths due to the varying thickness of skin tissue, depending on the area(s) being treated. Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. has an adjustable needle depth that allows Dr Tara to adjust penetration depth throughout the entire treatment. This will allow the medical provider to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet, and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers.
How is the procedure done?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 to 36(optional) tiny micro-needles is attached to the Collagen P.I.N. Dr Tara 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.
How will I look afterwards?
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 downtime.
