What is Collagen PIN™ Micro Needling – Nashville, TN
The Collagen PIN™ micro needling is a minimally invasive technique to induce skin rejuvenation. Micro Needling was first used to treat scarring, and is now used for resurfacing aging skin.
Benefits of the Collagen PIN micro needling treatment
The Collagen PIN™ is a handheld tool that is applied directly to the skin. The tool uses several tiny needles in the tip to make thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin. These minor injuries induce the skin to heal itself, producing more collagen, elastin, and blood vessels. Aging skin is characterized by a reduction in the amount.
Stimulating the skin with this process can restore a more youthful structure to the skin, improving its appearance and texture. Collagen PIN™ micro needling can also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and stretch marks. This treatment can be done anywhere on the body on any skin type.
Micro Needling vs. Other Treatments
One major advantage that micro needling has over other rejuvenation techniques is the ability to be applied to areas that are difficult to treat with peels or lasers, such as near the eyes and mouth, or hands. Individuals interested in avoiding the chemicals used in peels may find that micro needling is a safe, effective alternative. Individuals with darker skin hues are at higher risk of experiencing burns and scarring from laser treatments, can benefit from using micro needling as an alternative resurfacing procedure. The downtime from micro needling is minimal to zero, so patients interested in avoiding the peeling and redness commonly associated with other resurfacing techniques may prefer micro needling. Depending on the skin concern being treated several treatments are required to achieve desired results 4-6 weeks apart.
