Windsor Collagen PIN Micro-Needling
Many people have heard of collagen and understand that it is vital to skin health, but they do not appreciate its importance as they age. The body’s natural collagen production decreases over time. Combine that with typical wear and tear on the skin, spanning everything from excessive sun exposure to genetics, and it is easy to see why there is a visible component to getting older.
There are many different options to treat skin aging, and the same techniques are often used to treat other skin issues, including acne scars and stretch marks. A common treatment schedule may include chemical peels and painful laser treatments, but there is another option for anyone concerned with rejuvenating their skin cells.
At Xanadu Med Spa, we are delighted to serve our clients with collagen P.I.N. microneedling.

How Micro-Needling Works
Any microneedling treatment requires oversight from trained experts, as the entire treatment is all about control. As the name suggests, each treatment involves the use of tiny needles, which are used to create tiny micro-wounds on the patient’s skin. Essentially, the treatment intentionally damages the skin’s surface to encourage the body’s natural ability to repair itself.
Following the creation of a controlled wound, the repair process not only ensures that the skin is as good as new but also encourages the production of new collagen and elastin. For those with skin issues, such as acne scarring or sun-damaged skin, it can provide consistent treatment for firmer skin and will single-handedly overcome most major skin concerns.
Crucially, micro-needling is not considered among ablative treatments and is known to cause less skin damage than dermal needle rollers and other alternative treatments. As such, that means that recovery is swift and most patients experience noticeable results shortly following their first treatment, providing significant encouragement around their individual skin health.
Our Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy
An automated microneedling device sits at the center of a procedure known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy or PCIT. As with the manual equivalent, automated skin treatments of this nature are designed to create minor skin wounds to encourage the body to work on recovery.
The act itself is often combined with a topical serum, which makes it easier for the sterile needle tip to move across the skin. Most serums are based around Hyaluronic Acid, selected specifically for this process due to the fact that the body produces it naturally.
Not only does the serum make percutaneous induction needling devices more effective, but ensures that the serum is delivered deep into the skin itself. Tiny micro-channels stimulate the skin’s growth factors, leading to a thicker dermis and a reduction in common skin conditions.
An Upgrade on Other Ablative Treatments
Our collagen PIN microneedling treatment is a direct upgrade on similar treatments like dermal rolling. Most dermal rollers incorporate a fixed needle depth and penetration depths. While that can help stimulate the skin’s natural growth factors, there is nothing quite like a flexible, customized technique to stimulate new skin cell growth.
The flexibility of our percutaneous induction needling technique means that skin tissue on even thinner skin can enjoy superior results compared to dermal rolling and other ablative treatments through light therapy.
The Collagen PIN Micro-Needling Process
As with most treatments, it is always ideal to know what to expect before treatment begins. It all starts with the application of a topical anesthetic to clean skin approximately thirty minutes before the treatment begins. While by no means painful, the creation of a controlled wound in the skin can be uncomfortable, so our experts take every precaution against such discomfort.
The vast majority of clients report feeling nothing at all during their treatment. Those that do typically place the discomfort level at a two on a scale of one to ten. In practice, that means that even if you can feel the needles working on your skin, it certainly won’t hurt.
We want every visitor at Xanadu Med Spa to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible, even when micro-needling rollers are involved!
When thirty minutes have passed, your expert will remove any anesthetic residue and clean the skin once more. They will then use a fresh safety micro needle cartridge to commence the treatment after applying a layer of the topical Hyaluronic Acid serum.
Your spa specialist will adjust the treatment based on your specific needs. They will look to capitalize on the skin’s natural growth factors, and adjust the needle penetration depth of micro-needling for different skin types and particular conditions, such as acne scars.
The needles will pierce the skin with controlled micro-holes, triggering new skin cell growth and the creation of new collagen.
While the process represents one of the more valuable anti-aging tools and may become an integral part of your skin care routine, a single procedure can encourage collagen production for up to a year afterwards. That means that whether you are looking for younger skin or wish to address a specific skin condition such as advanced sun damage, you can see real results following just a single treatment.
Opting for Multiple Treatments
There is no way to tell ahead of time how many treatments will be required to achieve the results you have in mind. The effectiveness of any collagen PIN treatment depends on your current skin health, the specific condition of the area being treated and your personal aesthetic goals.
A typical treatment course spans between three and six sessions. However, meeting your unique goals may involve more or less. That’s why we offer every client a free consultation to ensure we fully understand what you want to achieve and can provide unique insight into how we plan to meet your goals.
After Your Treatment
In many cases, it is possible to see results soon after the very first treatment. The tiny wounds caused can quickly stimulate skin cell growth, providing visible improvements within hours or days.
It is vital to consider that while improvements to the condition of your skin may happen quickly, most people will experience redness in the affected areas. However, this is a minor and perfectly normal byproduct of the treatment, and any inflammation of this nature should begin to subside within 24 hours.
It is also worth considering the impact of makeup shortly after treatment. Mineral-based makeup can be suitable directly following treatment due to the fact that it does not allow for bacteria growth on the skin. Clients that do not use mineral-based makeup or that can avoid it entirely should attempt to do so for at least four days following their treatment.
Also worth thinking about is that your treatment can be combined with additional products that are suitable for use outside the spa. Our collagen PIN treatment is designed to work on the skin, triggering new collagen and elastin production. This can be stimulated further with the use of a daily retinoid product that you can introduce as part of your regular skin care routine.
A thin layer of such a product can help support and further stimulate the effects of your treatment, leading to even more impressive results. Your skin care specialist will be able to advise on the best products to maintain and enhance your results.
