Collagen P.I.N.

What is the Collagen P.I.N.?

(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy)

cpin-logoWe now have Collagen P.I.N. – What is that?  It is Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy also sometimes referred to as dermal or micro needling.  Collagen P.I.N. is the newest form of micro-needling with a disposable micro needle cartridge containing 36 micro-needles, rpm’s that go up to 23,000 and operator controls which provide for the most customized and effective needling treatment available.  Also our new Collagen P.I.N. goes to a depth from .05 to 3ml (most other micro-needling devices only go to 2 ml) which can effectively treat deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks or any type of scar.

Advantages of needling include lower cost and shortened downtime when compared to Active or Deep FX C02 Laser resurfacing. Most often, needling is done as a series of 3-6 treatments. We have single and package pricing. Micro needling is most often done to the whole face or half-face. Furthermore, needling is a very effective way to rejuvenate the skin of the upper chest or décolletage. Collagen P.I.N. also allows for greater skin penetration of active ingredients in the time period when the skin is most porous after the needling. This window of opportunity is generally thought to be 24-36 hours.

Why It’s Used

Plastic Surgeons, dermatologists and other aesthetic providers choose Collagen P.I.N. for the following reasons:

  • Safety First! Collagen P.I.N. is inherently safer than dermal rollers, utilizing sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips. The P.I.N. Safety Micro-needle Cartridge ensures that Collagen P.I.N. delivers greater efficiency and superior clinical results while maintaining the highest level of safety for both patient and provider. It is also safe for ALL skin types which means this procedure can benefit anyone!
  • Faster Truly is Better! Collagen P.I.N.’s powerful motor means quick penetration by the needles. This creates a more comfortable experience that patients describe as a vibrating tickle.
  • Customized Treatment for Each Patient! Each patient’s skin is different and has unique needs for its betterment. Because the 3mm needle depth is adjustable, Collagen P.I.N. providers can customize your treatment to your individual needs.

How It Works

A topical serum is applied to clean skin (in most cases your practitioner will use a hyaluronic acid) to help the Collagen P.I.N. Safety Micro-Needle Cartridge glide smoothly across the skin’s surface while creating thousands of micro-channels every second, which helps stimulate the skin’s own natural healing process, while simultaneously delivering Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – the building blocks for healthy new skin.

Your practitioner will select the appropriate needle depth and number of passes required to properly treat your concerns based upon your individual skin health and skin regimen.

The Collagen P.I.N. Safety Micro-Needle provides “flawless” results on the following:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Decolletage
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Back

Results Without Downtime

Induction Therapies is proud to offer a NO DOWNTIME ™ Forever Warranty because the skin’s repair process begins immediately upon treatment. Fibroblasts – the cells that synthesize new collagen – are active for up to as much as one year after just one Collagen P.I.N. treatment. New collagen and elastin produce younger, healthier, plumper, and firmer skin, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars for an overall better tone and texture.

This is the treatment recommended for just above the eye. This will help to tighten the tissue above and below the brow, and in many cases will create a slight lift effect.


Single linear passes are made both vertically and horizontally to treat the area. A third pass is made diagonally, or small circular motions are used for the third pass to focus on areas of concern (deep lines or wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots, large pores, etc)


Single linear passes are made vertically then horizontally on the upper left forehead. A third pass could be made horizontally if deemed necessary, or small circular motions are often used for a 3rd pass for scars (acne or other), over sized pores, overall tone & texture, etc.

Lip and Nasal Area

Small circular passes are often used as well as linear passes when treating the upper lip, lower lip lines, and nasal area, as well as the nasal labial folds. This small circular motion helps to diffuse any discomfort that the patient might be feeling, if ANY. If the proper topical numbing agent is applied, most patients report a pain level of 1 – 2, or 3 – 4 at most on a scale of 1 – 10.


The nose can be a tough area to treat. Similar to the forehead, a good portion of the treatment zone is directly against the bone, which could possibly be uncomfortable for the patient if the proper topical numbing agent isn’t selected. Extra care needs to be taken when working directly on the bridge of the nose.
