Micro-Needling in Chicago, IL
Micro-needling is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that is used to reduce the visibility of acne scars and fine lines, effectively rejuvenating the skin’s tone and appearance overall. Also called Collagen Induction Therapy, or CIT, micro-needling is one of the fastest, most comfortable way to improve the appearance of the skin, helping men and women look years younger and flawlessly refreshed. Natural Beauty Med Spa is happy to offer micro-needling to patients in Chicago and the surrounding areas.
Benefits of Micro-Needling
Micro-needling stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, smoothing acne scars, atrophic facial scars, and other cosmetic flaws for a radiant, youthful appearance. For some patients, a single treatment is all that is needed to produce softer, firmer, more evenly toned skin. In many cases, optimal results are achieved with a series of two to three treatments with about 6-8 weeks between sessions.
This proven-effective procedure can also be used to diminish the appearance of stretch marks, traumatic scars, and mild to moderate discoloration (hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation). Micro-needling can be used virtually anywhere on the body to enhance the evenness of skin’s texture and tone. The most commonly treated areas include the face, arms, chest, neck, hands, arms, legs, back, and abdomen.
The Micro-Needling Procedure
To begin, the area to be treated will be covered in a thin layer of clear, protective gel. We’ll attach a sterile needle tip to the Eclipse MicroPen™ and select the setting that is right for you. We will determine the appropriate setting based upon your skin type and the type of damage being addressed. Each sterile tip contains 12 tiny needles. With a single, fluid motion, the pen is gently swept across the surface of the skin in one direction. This process is not painful; in fact, most patients compare the micro-needling sensation to the feeling of light sandpaper brushing across the skin. The specially formulated hydrating gel and the high speed of the reciprocating micro-needles reduce discomfort.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, the entire process typically lasts for about 15 to 30 minutes. Though it is normal to experience redness immediately after the procedure, many patients have completed healing within the first 24 hours. Our helpful staff can recommend a variety of skincare products that can help accelerate the healing process.
