Collagen P.I.N. in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
Who is a Candidate?
Promotes your skin with the ability to produce new collagen and regenerate cells. Improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring. Aids in reversing environmental damage, smoothing texture, and decreasing pore size. Includes transdermal delivery of topical hyaluronic, vitamin c, and bio-peptide agents (PRP). Multiple treatments will be required to achieve optimal results. A small number of patients will not respond to this treatment.
An FDA-approved microneedling device can be used on multiple areas of the body, face, neck, hands, arms legs, and back. The repair process is accelerated by the formation of microscopic channels, which allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. A sterile, disposable cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the tip of the pen. A layer of topical serum is applied to the skin and the pen is glided across the area in a gentle motion. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes or longer, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
The unique design of the micro-needling device allows for individual settings, which makes the treatment comfortable. Topical numbing may also be applied prior to the treatment. The number of treatments recommended for most patients is 6, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photoaging, stretch marks, or acne scarring, the recommendation may be 6 to 8, at 4- to 6-week intervals.
Recuperation and Healing
Immediately following the treatment, the skin may be pink. Some patients heal in 24 hours, although for more aggressive treatments the skin may stay red for 2 to 4 days. The skin must be protected from sunlight after the treatment, and post-op recovery instructions must be followed. For more information regarding Peels & Facials, visit the home page.
