Microneedling (Collagen P.I.N.)
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that induces a controlled injury to the dermal and epidermal junction in the skin. The goal of this treatment is to remove skin imperfections and promote collagen and elastin growth.
What does Collagen P.I.N treat?
- Scars: C-Section, burn scars, acne scars, other surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Dark spots (sun spots/hyper-pigmentation)
- Fine lines/ wrinkles
- Hair loss

What is Microneedling Like?
Prior to the treatment a numbing agent is applied to the area being treated. Most patients report feeling little to no pain. Once the area has been assessed your physician will select the correct speed, depth, and needle cartridge.
How many treatments are required?
This depends on the areas you want to treat and what you are trying to achieve. Generally patients need about 3-6 treatments for maximum results. Those looking to treat deep wrinkles, stretch marks, advanced sun damage, or scarring may need 6 or more treatments. For the safety of your skin the treatments are spaced out about one month apart from each other.
Because the process causes less damage than some other treatment options like dermal rolling or lasers, the healing process is quicker and in many cases more successful. Post-treatment you may be red or pink, almost as if you got a sunburn, however in a few days your skin should heal.
Before & After Photos:
If applicable: try to avoid wearing makeup at all (if you can). If not use only mineral based foundation to avoid the formation of bacteria. After about 4 days you are free to use your regular products. A kit will be available for you to take home for post-treatment care.
