Our skin’s ability to regenerate new skin cells and stimulate new collagen production diminishes as we age. The result is fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, rough texture, and larger pore size. Anyone who is showing common signs of aging will benefit from Collagen PIN microneedling treatments!
Microneedling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. As the device is moved across the skin’s surface, natural collagen production is stimulated while allowing fine channels to be created in the skin.
The channels created can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients into the skin. They allow treatment to be delivered deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying skin cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Collagen PIN microneedling treatments are extremely innovative and effective at activating cellular regeneration and collagen production. This treatment can help tighten and lift skin while minimizing the appearance of:
Any signs of aging skin or other common concerns can be dramatically improved with this microneedling treatment. Because of the new production of collagen that continues after treatment, you’ll continue to experience skin rejuvenation well after the treatment is over.
Older microneedling treatments used dermal rollers which were not very effective for all skin types or every area of the skin. But with Collagen PIN, it’s customizable and can reach all areas through the adjustable needle depths. This device is safe and effective for all skin types, skin colors, and all areas of the body.
The Collagen PIN is one of the most advanced medical-grade microneedling instruments on the market today. It’s less invasive than other microneedling treatments and customizable as we are able to adjust the needle depth. This allows our team to properly address specific issues, and we are able to treat more sensitive and complex areas of skin.
Advanced vertical skin needling promotes scarless healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. It’s also more effective than most microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels.
Unlike traditional microneedling rollers, the Collagen PIN device causes less trauma and has minimal epidermal (skin) damage. Therefore, there is less pain and discomfort, and it’s an overall safer and more effective treatment.
The PIN device also uses disposable needles to eliminate risk of cross-contamination. The adjustable needles used allows us to reach delicate areas of skin such as the nose or around the eyes and mouth.
At your initial consultation, our team will assess your skin, patient history, and goals to determine a personalized treatment plan for you. There are typically a series of 3-6 treatments recommended based on which area is being treated and what skin concerns you have.
You can expect the following during and after a treatment session:
The repair process begins almost immediately after treatment. The fibroblasts (cells that synthesize new collagen) are active for up to a year after just one Collagen PIN treatment. This is considered a no downtime treatment as any redness usually subsides within 24 hours.
Our team will send you home with after-treatment instructions and skin care recommendations to enhance your results. It’s important to note that it’s a natural part of the aging process for collagen production to slow down over time. Continuing an effective skincare routine at home between your treatments will be ideal as well as receiving a future series of treatments.

How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
Rejuvenation: 4-6 Treatments | 4 Weeks Apart
How long should it take before I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimum needle depths treatments are painless. For treatments over 0.5mm deep, a topical anaesthesia cream is applied for 45 – 60 minutes before treatment and will render the treatments completely pain-free.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
How soon after filler injections can I have a treatment?
It’s recommended to leave at least 4 weeks after filler injections so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. Or have your Needling treatment 2 – 3 weeks before having fillers injected.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Astoria Laser Clinic!! I have been going to see Olga (who is amazing) for ~5 months. I have done everything from CoolSculpting to Cool Tone to Vanquish to Venus to Laser Hair Removal and all of it has been fantastic.
Everyone is knowledgeable, professional and efficient. The treatments are state of the art, and I feel like those I had made a visible difference. All of the staff members are lovely, and really know the ins and outs of treatments. The establishment is spotless and all COVID precautions are enforced.
The girls here all super sweet and know how to treat you like family especially Louisa and Olga. They are experts at face care and so much more. Do yourself a favor and don’t go anywhere else for your spa needs. All staff are knowledgeable and courteous. It’s hard to find a friendly place that also knows the business
Very Pleased with my cooltone results. I met with Olga who was very knowledgeable and offered good insight on why and how this treatment would work and aid my goal in defining certain muscle groups. With Olga's advice and game plan I was able to obtain and meet my goal a bit early.
Astoria is a great medspa. It’s extremely clean, professional, and everyone makes you feel comfortable. Olga is absolutely incredible. She is extremely knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. She not only wants you to look good, but feel good. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Absolutely love the atmosphere and service that Ivana and Louisa have given me. Ivana is very careful and she truly cares and follows up after all treatments. Years of sun damage and rosacea problems are slowly being erased, and by face looks amazing! Their facilities are extremely neat and clean, you won't be disappointed!
This med spa and laser clinic has the latest techniques and procedures, delivered in an inviting, courteous and professional atmosphere. The staff is knowledgable, and excel at providing personal attention. I felt confident that the procedures I had would deliver results.
