LET'S BE FRIENDS
Collagen P.I.N. is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision microneedling tool available at The Marigold Spa in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. It is designed to address acne scars, the symptoms of aging skin (wrinkles and fine lines), and to increase the efficacy of topical skin-care products. The treatment is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation, creating healthier skin. This repair process is accelerated by Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling through the formation of microscopic channels, which also allow product to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.

How is the procedure done?
First, we apply a medical-grade numbing solution to the areat to be treated. After 20-30 minutes, we remove the numbing cream and prepare the skin for treatment. We then attache a sterile, disposable cartridge containing 36 tiny micro-needles to the tip of the pen. A thin layer of topical serum is applied to the skin, and the appropriate micro channeling treatment is selected for a particular type of skin. Then the pen is glided across the targeted area a in a gentle motion.
What does it feel like?
The unique design of Collagen P.I.N. allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment quite comfortable for most patients. Plus, the numbing helps!
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure typically takes 15-45 minutes, depending upon the size of the area and the severity of skin damage.
What is the downtime?
Depending on the individualized settings used, some have a pink flush to the skin while others may be slightly more red. The specialist at Marigold will send you home with an aftercare product kits so that you will have all the necessary items for your skin to heal. Total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process required. On average, patient are pink for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Most people notice healthier-looking skin within 2-4 days. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time, and it will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will be determined by your our Marigold Specialist based upon your individual treatment goals and the health of your skin. However, it is recommended that most clients receive a series of three microneedling treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, the recommendation is to receive 3-8 sessions.
