Automated micro-needling, aka PCIT (Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy), is a recent advancement in cosmetic medicine that treats fine wrinkles and acne scars and enhances the appearance of the skin in general. To stimulate collagen and elastin production, regulated micro-injuries to the skin are made using tiny needles during this treatment.
A thicker dermis with softer-looking wrinkles is the consequence of the skin’s restoration process. Automated micro-needling also makes superficial micro-channels that improve the skin’s ability to absorb topical serums and lotions.
How does a collagen P.I.N. microneedling procedure go?
When you get there, your skin will be cleaned, and 30 minutes before your treatment, a topical anesthetic will be given. After removing your drug, your skin will be cleaned once more to ensure there is nothing on it before the procedure.
The Collagen P.I.N. has a needle-tip attached with 36 teeny tiny microneedles. A thin coating of topical hyaluronic serum will be applied to your skin by your skincare expert, who will also decide on the proper treatment depth depending on your requirements. The Collagen P.I.N. will then be softly glided across the skin in a single direction, covering the entire treatment region.
The entire treatment region is covered in hundreds of microscopic channels as a result. Collagen Induction Therapy, the mending procedure, starts practically immediately. After just one Collagen P.I.N. therapy, fibroblasts, the cells that produce new collagen, can remain active for up to a year. Additional serums could be added based on your individual needs. Based on your unique skin health and skincare routine, your physician will decide on the right needle depth and number of passes to effectively treat your symptoms.
What Can Effects of Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling Be Anticipated?
The collagen P.I.N. procedure is regarded as having no downtime. Your skin will appear mildly pink to substantially red just after treatment. Your skin’s sensitivity will determine how long your redness lasts; it might be another 24 hours. Based on your unique skin, your doctor will suggest skin care products for your post-care, which will significantly reduce these symptoms and improve your overall outcomes.
Even though microneedling is one of the skincare procedures that encourages the body’s own collagen production, it can be the best choice for you if you want drastic results with little downtime. You should be aware of the considerable benefits of microneedling.
REDUCES THE EFFECT OF LINES AND WRINKLES
Nobody wants to seem older than they are. But early aging, which appears as fine lines and wrinkles, already does that. Microneedling boosts the development of collagen and elastin, which helps to lessen the aging effects.
Its form and strength are provided by the proteins collagen and elastin, which also give it a youthful look. Your body’s wound-healing capabilities also promote the growth of new skin cells, which lessens the visibility of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines.
There are more aging indicators than wrinkles and discoloration. As you get older, your skin becomes less elastic and seems loose. Aging skin may look lifeless and lack a glossy luster. Microneedling can be useful in treating this.
Small cuts that cause collagen formation can improve skin structure and stop sagging. Additionally, you develop a radiant, young glow 24 hours after a treatment.
IT ASSISTS IN ERASING STRETCH MARK
You may use microneedling on practically any portion of your body. With this therapy, stretch marks that appear after periods of rapid development, including during pregnancy, can be lessened.
ROSACEA IS REDUCED
Microneedling can help with the thick skin and ruddiness of rosacea. People with this skin condition experience an acceleration in the degradation of collagen. In order to make up for and restore the collagen lost by microneedling, your skin will appear less inflamed and irritated.
IMPROVEMENT OF ACNE
By increasing the distribution of topical treatments, microneedling can help improve the efficacy of topical therapies for acne.
Collagen Pin Microneedling AfterCare
A rapid and non-invasive cosmetic technique with few adverse effects is microneedling. But it’s very normal to feel the following:
Normal results may resemble a sunburn. Your skin can feel tight, dry, or touchably sensitive. Use lukewarm water and a moderate cleanser to wash the skin, then pat it dry with just your hands no sooner than four hours after treatment.
In some situations, patients may also notice brief swelling for 2-4 days and mild bruising that can remain for 5-7 days, in addition to minor redness.
- For up to 48 hours, stay away from hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms, as well as physically demanding activities that make you perspire.
- Afterward, only use mineral makeup.
- In order to lessen any necessary pain or swelling, sleep on your head with the bed’s head elevated.
Three to five days following the therapy, peeling may begin. Due to a higher skin cell turnover rate, you’ll feel flaking and dryness of the skin. AVOID picking, scratching, and rubbing the treated skin!
Important information: Always keep the skin hydrated and let the old skin flake off naturally. Consult a skin expert for advice on appropriate products.
Once your skin is no longer itchy, you can resume using your usual skin care products. The majority of our patients have reported that their skin has continued to get better in the months since their previous treatment.
According to your individualized care plan, we advise repeating microneedling treatments every 4-6 weeks for the greatest results. A series of 3-5 treatments are also advised.
