After numbing the skin with cream a small pen like device is passed over the face. Within the pen are small needles that put tiny micro holes in the skin. As these micro punctures heal, new collagen protein growth occurs in the treated area which can result in tightening the skin or smoothing out old acne scarring.
This is an excellent procedure for patients who either do not need the deeper laser treatments or have skin that would not be suitable for laser resurfacing. Pinning is also used in conjunction with platelet rich plasma to stimulate new hair growth in patients experiencing hair loss.
