WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?
Automated Micro-Needling, also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy, is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, pigmentation, texture and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled "micro-injuries" to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. 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.
WILL THE COLLAGEN P.I.N. PROCEDURE HURT?
Prior to your treatment we will apply a topical numbing agent. Most of our patients report feeling minimal discomfort during the procedure.
HOW MANY COLLAGEN P.I.N. TREAMENTS WILL I NEED?
Typically a series of 3-6 treaments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. During your consultation, we will create a treatment plan designed specific to your skin's health and condition. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage or scarring may require addition treatments to achieve the desired results.
IS THERE DOWNTIME?
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will appear and feel like you have a sunburn. During the week to follow, you may experience light peeling or flaking but does not require you to take time from your normal daily activities or work.
