What is Microneedling?
Naturally, as we age our skin begins to produce collagen at a much slower rate. This, in turn, causes the skin to appear, and even feel, thinner than before. In addition, the formation of wrinkles and fine lines begin to occur. Micro-needling provides a solution to these common skin concerns by stimulating the production of collagen. The beauty of this facial is that it allows your body to do all of the work and heal itself. Commonly performed with a micropen, this facial involves the use of tiny needles that create even smaller puncture marks all over your face. The needles don’t travel very deep, as it’s a superficial treatment. The resulting effects reveal skin that is more even in tone and texture, as well as a reduction in wrinkles and past scars caused by acne, chicken pox, trauma or surgery. Performed in office, Micro-needling is quick and painless, delivering amazing results!
What does Microneedling treat?
At our office located in Chicago, our Micro-needling treatment is effective in treating the following common skin concerns:
- Scars caused from acne, chicken pox, trauma or surgery
- Age spots or sun spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines and crow’s feet
- Large pores
- Uneven skin tone
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Dull skin
In addition, Micro-needling can also be combined with other techniques, such as PRP facials. The PRP (platelet rich plasma) that’s in the patient’s own blood would be spread across the surface of the skin. This is followed by Micro-needling, which allows the PRP to have access to the dermis. The result of these combined treatments includes faster healing and a noticeable glow immediately following the procedure.
How does it Work?
When the needles puncture the skin, the body responds by beginning its natural healing process. The body’s healing response stimulates collagen growth to the treated area and renews skin. Really, the body begins to heal itself, thus healing blemishes, scars and other skin conditions while doing so. This treatment promotes the production of collagen, which is the protein needed for smoother looking skin. Individual results will vary in each patient.*
What results can I expect?
- Improves skin texture
- Diminishes the appearance of wrinkles
- Stimulates tissue regeneration
- Reduces scars caused from acne, trauma, and surgery
- Minimizes enlarged pores
What is the procedure like in Chicago?
The procedure is quick, typically ranging from 20-30 minutes. To begin, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin in order to provide for a more comfortable procedure. Once the topical cream has taken affect, the Micro-pen will be utilized to gently glide across the surface of the face, creating tiny micro-channels within the top layers of the skin. However, these micro-channels are very tiny, therefore you are likely to not notice them post-treatment. A calming serum may be applied to the face post-treatment.
What is recovery like?
The healing process for Micro-needling is quick and painless, requiring no downtime and allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. However, common side effects may occur such as skin irritation and redness caused as a result of the skin stimulation. This reaction is normal, and the redness should subside naturally within a few days. In addition, makeup may be applied the following day to provide for some coverage. Post-treatment, your skin may appear more sensitive to the sun, for this reason we advise our clients to use protection during times spent outdoors.
You can expect to see results of a smoother, glowing complexion within a couple of weeks, as the skin usually works quickly to revitalize new tissue. To maintain maximum results, follow up sessions are recommended at monthly intervals.
Benefits of Microneedling in Chicago
As a procedure that stimulates circulation and collagen production, you can expect various benefits! For one, there’s no need to worry about having an allergic reaction, because there are no chemicals involved. This facial is noninvasive, so there’s no need for anesthesia or medications. In fact, recovery time is just a few minutes! Micro-needling can be done during a lunch break, without causing any serious interruption to one’s daily life. It’s also much easier to be considered a good candidate for this facial than other treatments. In addition, skin care products are able to more deeply penetrate the skin, increasing the products effectiveness. Micro-needling may also be safely performed on all skin types and colors. Overall, it’s quick and efficient.
