Micro Skin Needling
Would you like fresher, smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and scars? Our brand new Collagen PIN treatment is for you.
It’s one of the most advanced methods of micro skin needling treatment available, non-invasive, virtually pain-free and clinically proven to stimulate your natural collagen and elastin. Micro needles shift your skin’s natural repair mechanism into high gear – a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out!
Your skin will become firmer, regaining elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles will be visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of your skin will improve dramatically – get that youthful plumpness back.
What do you need to know?
After the age of 25 collagen production slows down and so the youthful plumpness of the skin starts to diminish. Skin needling stimulates your body’s own production of collagen, and micro needling has been clinically proven to stimulate your natural collagen and elastin, helping to bring that youthful look back!
Micro needling is a non-invasive treatment that uses precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, micro perforations in the skin (epidermis) and the top layer of the deeper skin (dermis). As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations – a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out!
Why collagen PIN treatment?
- Collagen PIN is safer than dermal rollers, using sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips
- For once quicker, truly is better! Collagen PIN’s powerful motor means quick perforation by the needles for a more comfortable experience (that patients describe as a vibrating tickle!)
- Treatment can be customised for your skin as we can adjust the needle depth to suit your needs
- Collagen PIN treatment has a shorter recovery time than many other skin needling treatments it’s more convenient and much less disruptive, so you can continue your daily routine very shortly after treatment
Clients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes develop over the course of several days and weeks and results continue to improve for up to six months as collagen production increases.
- Smooth away wrinkles, folds and crow’s feet – very effective on the neck and chest
- Reduces open pores
- Improves the appearance of scars, especially indented or pitted acne scars.
- Improves the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
- Suitable for all skin types and does not make skin sensitive to UV lights
- Virtually pain free!
What happens during the treatment?
Before you have a micro needling treatment, we’ll ask you to attend a free consultation so that you can tell us how you feel about your skin and we can see how specific issues are affecting you. We will explain micro needling in detail and discuss what you can expect both during and after the treatment.
For a full face treatment allow approximately 1 hour. A numbing cream is applied 30 minutes before the treatment. The feeling associated with micro needling is similar to light sandpaper or an electric toothbrush being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed reduces discomfort and the hydrating gel we apply makes the treatment more comfortable.
On the day After the procedure your skin will be a little red, similar to moderate sunburn. This will start to subside over the following two to three hours. You should avoid makeup for 24 hours after treatment.
Afterwards Your skin will normally recover within 24 – 48 hours of the treatment. By day three or four your skin will just have a slightly pink appearance, and there will be very little sign that the treatment has taken place. We’ll recommend some homecare products to minimise any discomfort.
Does micro needling cause hyperpigmentation?
In normal skin, no. You protect the skin against UV rays after the treatment and for the first 7-10 days – over-exposure to UV rays after micro needling could lead to micropigmentation but the risk is very small.
How is Collagen PIN treatment different from the Dermal Needling Rollers of the past…?
One of the many drawbacks was that dermal rollers have a fixed needle or perforation depth of 0.5mm, which doesn’t account for differences in the thickness of skin tissue. A fixed needle depth or perforation level is a huge drawback when trying to customise a treatment. The Collagen PIN has an adjustable needle depth that allows us to vary the depth of perforation throughout the entire treatment so we can properly address the specific needs of thinner skin, such as the skin around lower eyelids, crow’s feet and forehead. Where the tissue is thicker, in areas like the upper lip, cheeks, neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be made.
Who can be treated with Collagen PIN and on what areas of the body?
The Collagen PIN can be used on all skin types to address a variety of concerns, most areas of the body can be treated, including:
How many treatments will I need and is there maintenance afterwards?
Each micro needling course is different but typically a series of three to six treatments is recommended, depending upon the area you would like treated – we will recommend a treatment plan based on your individual goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced in four-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks or any type of scars, usually need six or more treatments to achieve the desired results. You should continue to see results for up to six-eight months after your last treatment as your skins matrix regrows new collagen.
I have just had fillers or Botox can I have a course of Rejuvapen?
You must wait at least 28 days before you can have a Collagen PIN session.
How long do I have to wait to wear make up?
You can return to your regular make up within 2-3 days but you must continue to use a high factor sunscreen. Suitable medical camouflage can be applied immediately after treatment – your therapist can help with this.
How long will my results last?
Your overall result will last longer when using our at home skin care regime that includes a daily Retinoid product. New collagen and elastin formation in the skin are documented as being visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. But we normally recommend a series of treatments for best results.
What products do you recommend?
An important part of the treatment is preparing the skin before the procedure with a therapeutic dose of Vitamins A and C, and specific skin cleaning products to maximise product delivery to the skin. This significantly reduces downtime and client discomfort. It is very important to continue using the topical creams for at least six months after the treatment to ensure healthy collagen and elastin is produced. RRP £225 per treatment
