Microneedling is, no doubt, becoming one of the most popular skincare treatments of 2018.

After being touted by major beauty magazines such as Elle and Allure as one of the best ways to make your skin glow, look refreshed and rejuvenated, and lose any hint of scarring or discoloration – the demand has been made.

And at Precision Skin Institute, a leader in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology in the Fort Lauderdale area – we hear you loud and clear! We are now proud to offer our loyal skincare devotees one the best options in microneedling at our Davie dermatology center.

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, and allowing for faster healing of the skin.

First introduced in 1995, microneedling was not always as desired as it is now. Almost 35 years since the birth of this amazing skin-rejuvenation treatment, the world has jumped on board the microneedling bus due to the advances in technology that have been made to streamline and simplify this once-complicated process.

Also, thanks largely in part to P.I.N. – one of the best and most advanced microneedling tools available on the market.

Percutaneous Induction Needling (P.I.N.), also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy, otherwise known as micro-needling, or automated micro-needling, is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates and longer lasting results.

With an influx of microneedling devices becoming more readily available both in medical and cosmetic dermatology offices as well as at home, it’s important to understand why the Collagen P.I.N. has achieved its superior reputation amongst skincare professionals:

Simply put, the P.I.N microneedling device does what the traditional dermal-needling devices of the past simply cannot do: It penetrates deeper thanks to an adjustable needle depth that allows for dramatically improved penetration of the skin. The other dramatic difference is in the precision and safety of the results that occur using the Collagen P.I.N. versus a Dermal Needling Roller.

According to Induction Therapies, the developers of the P.I.N. technology,

The adjustable depth that allows your skincare provider to adjust penetration depth throughout the entire treatment. This will allow the medical provider to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet, and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers. The other dramatic difference is in the type of injury that occurs using the Collagen P.I.N. versus a Dermal Needling Roller.”
