West Virginia's Premier Medical Spa

COLLAGEN P.I.N. MICRONEEDLING​

As we age our ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen diminishes. Years of trauma to our skin leaves a lasting mark, contributing to aging factors such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and overall pore size and texture. Tuscan Sun Spa’s Medical Spa offers a wide array of effective methods to treat and rejuvenate your skin, including our laser and radio frequency treatments, chemical peels and now, microneedling. Microneedling is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin, triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin. The process we use causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth, providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for overall and longer lasting results.

First Session: $425 (includes take-home post procedure kit)
Follow Up Individual Sessions: $325
Series of 3: $999 (includes take-home kit

Frequently Asked Questions about Microneedling

(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy, a.k.a. micro-needling) Collagen P.I.N. is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of 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 and a much higher success rate.

Collagen P.I.N. can be used on all skin types to address a variety of concerns, most all areas of the body can be treated unless your medical provider determines otherwise.

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Décolletage
  • Abdomen
  • Hands
  • Back
Typically a series of 3-6 Collagen P.I.N. treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced in 4 week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
Prior to your treatment with the Collagen P.I.N., the medical provider will apply a topical numbing agent. Most people say they feel almost nothing after having been pretreated with a topical numbing agent.

Most all patients see results after the first Collagen P.I.N. treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. It is most common to begin to see true changes or positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Many patients comment on positive changes in even less time. Often, change is noted within just a few days!

Collagen P.I.N. produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to surface. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at home skin care regimen that includes a daily Retinoid product. Your provider is best suited to make this recommendation. New collagen & elastin formation in the skin are documented as visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. However, a series of treatments is typically recommended for best results.

Collagen P.I.N. is considered a no downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. Your medical provider will recommend skin care products for your post care based on your individual skin, which will greatly minimize these symptoms and enhance your overall results.
Directly after your treatment we recommend using only mineral based foundation, as it cannot build bacteria. You may go back to your regular foundation 4 days post treatment.
