Collagen PIN Microneedling

Collagen PIN Microneedling Specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area

At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, we have multiple treatment options that will help you with skin rejuvenation including the Collagen PIN Microneedling treatment.

What is Collagen PIN Microneedling?

During the aging process, our skin’s ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen dramatically diminishes. The result is fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, and overall texture and pore size. 

Collagen Pin Microneedling is an effective treatment that activates cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing common skin issues like fine lines, dull skin, acne scars, poor texture, scars, and stretch marks.

The Collagen PIN is one of the most advanced medical-grade microneedling instruments on the market today. It’s minimally-invasive and has adjustable needle depth that allows our team to properly address specific issues since we can choose varying penetration depth. It allows us to treat sensitive and more complex areas where skin might be thin or thick. 

The tip of the Collagen PIN contains sterile micro-pins that are used to create tiny injury sites at precise depths of the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing process and collagen and elastin production. Patients will experience noticeable skin rejuvenation.

In the past, microneedling was used with dermal rollers which was not very effective for all skin types and all areas of skin. With Collagen PIN, there’s an adjustable needle depth to customize different areas of your skin. It works on all skin types, skin colors, and on all areas of the body.

What are some expectations with Collagen PIN Microneedling?

You can expect the following when it comes to being treated with the Collagen PIN:

  • Typically a series of 3-6 treatments are recommended depending on the skin condition(s) being addressed
  • Treatments are usually done every 4-6 weeks
  • Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort
  • After treatment, your skin will look pink or red, but you will go home with a post-care plan that will help expedite your recovery

At the beginning of each treatment, your skin is cleansed, and your topical numbing cream is applied. Once the cleansing is complete, the Collagen PIN will be used to glide across the treatment area, creating the thousands of microscopic channels that will end up promoting the natural healing process. 

The Collagen PIN stimulates skin repair and collagen production. New skin cells will move to the surface. Depending on your individual skin concerns and goals, we may apply additional products or serums to enhance results. You’ll go home with a kit and products to make sure any side effects are minimized and results are optimized.

Since aging naturally causes a slow down in producing collagen, it will be important to continue an effective skincare routine at home between series of treatments. Our team can recommend the best skincare routine for you to continue to maintain post-treatment and in between treatments. 

We will determine your personalized treatment plan during your initial consultation and walk you through each treatment process every step of the way. Rest assured that we will strive to give you the best patient experience possible.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
