Micro-needling is now being used as an alternative to: * Dermabrasion * Chemical peels * Laser resurfacing * IPL * Fraxel * and other ablative & non-ablative treatments without the side effects as well as risk of infections.
The major cause of advanced aging of our skin is the loss of our collagen and elastin matrix. Collagen loss is influenced largely by our genetics as well as our environmental and personal care habits. Burning and excessive accumulated UV exposure, smoking, poor nutritional habits, lack of consistent skin hygiene all can act to accelerate collagen loss and lead to premature skin aging. Approximately 75% of the dermis is made up of collagen. In healthy skin it is arranged in bundles known as a “basket-weave” formation, which provides the overall skin with its strength and prevents tearing and breakdown.
Being that collagen decreases as we age, the skin tends to become thinner and sag as we get older. Elastin maintains the skin’s tension and extensibility and composes approximately 5% of the skin’s formation. Elastin fibers can diminsh, breakdown and lose their normal structure with aging. In skin which has been overexposed to UV rays or sun exposure, elastin increases and becomes thickened and therefore loses it’s normal structure. Fibroblasts are the controlling dermal cells; Micro-needling activates, through specific interactive signaling, neuro-dermal layers which produces new collagen and elastin fibers.
Micro-needling can be a good choice for people who have not seen success in reducing the look of wrinkles or deep acne scars with other types of treatment. The cost is lower than many other procedures, the recovery is easier and the risk is less than that of more invasive treatment options. Call our office today at 602-283-2061 to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our practitioners to see if micro-needling is the right choice for you. Before and After Burn Scar Recovery
The Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System utilizes 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts it’s natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. The advantage of the Rejuvapen compared to other treatments is that it not only activates cell regenerating, it also enhances the absorption of active ingredients of RP Complex into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes.
Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves. Rejuvapen treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scarring, burns, stretch marks, and firms and tightens most body areas.
The Rejuvapen is the most powerful micro-needle system available. The unmatched torque of the Rejuvapen is the perfect tool for all body areas and thick tissue where other systems fail.
(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy… a.k.a. micro-needling, or automated micro-needling)
P.I.N. is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for overall and longer lasting results.
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 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. Collagen P.I.N. is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Click below and let us help you find a Collagen P.I.N. provider in your area today.
Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks is that dermal rollers have a 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 thickness of skin tissue, which varies in depth tremendously depending on the area being treated. Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your skincare provider to vary the depth of penetration 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. The other dramatic difference is in the type of injury that occurs using the Collagen P.I.N. verses a Dermal Needling Roller. See the video below…
When used correctly resurfacing lasers can be a great tool for treating aging skin. However, lasers use focused light to produce heat that destroys certain colors of pigment and vaporizes skin. This is great for targeting dark spots but often leads to complications when treating patients with naturally darker skin. Collagen P.I.N. ™ breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat or the light. When the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a much safer, more comfortable, more 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.
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.
Innovative and effective, Collagen P.I.N. activates cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing common skin problems such as acne scars, fine lines, photo-aging, dull skin, poor texture, stretch marks and body scars.
(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy… a.k.a. micro-needling) Collagen P.I.N. is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of growth factors, new collagen & elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for results.
Collagen P.I.N. can be used on all skin types to address a variety of concerns, most all areas of the body can be treated unless your medical provider determines otherwise.
Typically a series of 3-6 Collagen P.I.N. treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced in 4 week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
A sterile disposable needle cartridge, holding 12 micro needles is glided across the skin with the Collagen P.I.N. device that mechanically induces a micro injury to the desired depth chosen for your skin by your medical provider. The Collagen P.I.N. creates micro channels which allows topicals and serums to reach the true targeted areas, producing a much more efficacious result.
Prior to your treatment with the Collagen P.I.N., the medical provider will apply a topical numbing agent. Most people say they feel almost nothing after having been pretreated with a topical numbing agent.
Most all patients see results after the first Collagen P.I.N. treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. It is most common to begin to see true changes or positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Many patients comment on positive changes in even less time. (often change is noted within just a few days)
Collagen P.I.N. produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to surface. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at home skin care regimen that includes a daily Retinoid product. Your medical provider is best suited to make this recommendation. New collagen & elastin formation in the skin are documented as visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. However, a series of treatments is typically recommended for best results.
Collagen P.I.N. is considered a no downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. Your medical provider will recommend skin care products for your post care based on your individual skin, which will greatly minimize these symptoms and enhance your overall results.
Directly after your treatment we recommend using only mineral based foundation, as it cannot build bacteria. You may go back to your regular foundation 4 days post treatment.
“The Collagen P.I.N. has offered me the one and only treatment that has changed my face. I’m ﬁnally clear of acne with no tiny red scars remaining, much smaller pores, and my skin is tighter and more vibrant! The most amazing part for me was how comfortable the treatment was. I was even able to go out to dinner later that same evening with friends. I never thought I would be comfortable not wearing foundation.”
“I’ve recently received three treatments with the Collagen P.I.N. and have had great results. I noticed a difference in my acne scars and overall complexion within 1-2 days. My co-workers commented on how smooth and healthy my skin appeared one day after the first treatment. After each treatment I was a little red for about 3 days, a little dry and light peeling. I returned to work the next day with little to no pain. I would highly recommend the Collagen P.I.N. treatment to anyone wanting to enhance their appearance; it truly does make a difference.”
