Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling (Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Induction Therapy) is a method of inducing a controlled injury into the skin’s dermal & epidermal junction which induces growth factors, new collagen and elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling, lasers or any other ablative treatment. Thus, protecting the skin’s cell growth making for quicker healing and higher rates of success.

How is microneedling different from a chemical peel?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure where physical trauma is induced into the upper layers of the skin by small sterile needles to incite the body’s healing response. These “micro-traumas” cause the body to heal the skin by creating new collagen which causes the skin to be tighter and more toned. A chemical peel is a more superficial treatment where various chemicals are placed topically on the skin. The acidic components of the peel cause damage to the outermost layers of the skin which causes the skin to slough off, leaving new, fresh, soft skin underneath. Chemical peels can be of various strengths and penetration to give variable outcomes depending on the goals. Different types of peels also have variable recovery periods.
