Is Collagen P.I.N. painful?
Each patient will have numbing cream applied before the procedure, for 15-45 minutes depending on the size of area being treated. It can become uncomfortable, similar to sunburn for 3-5 days post procedure.
How long will the results last?
Since Collagen P.I.N. is stimulating the body’s own collagen, the treatment results will last until your collagen production naturally slows back down. There has been documentation of new collagen and elastin within one year post treatment.
How many treatments will it take to see results?
Most Collagen P.I.N. patients will see results after one treatment. Optimal results are seen after a series of three treatments, though it is not uncommon for a patient to notice positive results three days post procedure.
What is the down time?
This procedure is considered a no downtime treatment. The day of the procedure you will look like you have a sunburn, the next day the area will feel very dry and tight. Your medical provider will provide you with a post procedure kit with products to aid in the results of the procedure.
