By now, you have probably seen the abbreviation, P.I.N., scattered throughout our website, or perhaps you have heard about it through word-of-mouth. Whatever the case may be, it’s a label that is often recognized, but not wholly understood in its entirety by physicians. So to clear up any confusion, we’re here to break down exactly what P.I.N. is and why it stands out from its competitors.
In short, P.I.N. stands for Percutaneous Induction Needling, which is another way of phrasing micro-needling. Essentially, the Collagen P.I.N. is an automated micro-needling device that works to rejuvenate the skin and eliminate imperfections that make the skin appear older. When applied to the skin’s surface, the P.I.N. induces collagen and elastin production deep within the dermis, which replaces the damaged skin cells with newer, healthier cells that help patients look more youthful.
The Benefit of Automated Micro-Needling
As the skin continues to age, fine line wrinkles, age spots and acne scarring become more apparent, which only increases issues with a patient’s self-image. Oftentimes, patients will desire treatment that helps them regain smoother skin, but without the use of invasive surgical techniques. Collagen P.I.N. is the ideal compromise, allowing patients to achieve younger-looking skin in a nonsurgical, minimally invasive manner. The fact that the system is automated makes it less damaging to the skin than more traditional methods, such as dermal rolling and laser treatments.
Using the Collagen P.I.N. to glide over the skin’s surface, you will create controlled, micro-injuries onto the epidermal layer of skin, signaling both collagen and elastin production. These healing agents repair these fresh injuries as well as the imperfections in the skin caused by natural aging, thereby smoothing the epidermal layer and strengthening the dermis to protect against future wrinkles. Micro-needling also creates avenues for other age-defying serums and creams to be more effective by giving them better access to the deeper layers of skin.
Additionally, the automated feature makes treatment with the Collagen P.I.N. completely customizable with its adjustable needle depth that allows you to penetrate and treat the skin in a manner that is most effective. Depending on the area being treated, the thickness of the skin can vary, making an adjustable penetration depth essential and allowing you to target all regions of the skin (something that cannot be said for dermal rollers). Sensitive areas like the upper lip, forehead, receive the same quality treatment as thicker areas such as the cheeks and softer areas around the eyes. Since there is no heat involved in a micro-needling treatment, there is no risk of pigmentation issues.
The Collagen P.I.N. is also completely cordless and corded, giving you more flexibility as you perform micro-needling procedures and ensuring that the battery life remains long and constant. Your treatments will be quicker and more efficient, a benefit for both you and your patients.
