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, texture, color 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.
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.
Am I a Candidate for Micro-Needling?
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all skin types for problems including sun damage, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, skin laxity, large pores, acne, discoloration, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation.
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body. The most common areas to treat are face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and abdomen. There is minimal downtime with each treatment about 1-3 days. Most patients are red for 24 hours or less!
How Long is the Treatment?
Depending on the size of the treatment area and if our skin care professionals apply a tropical lidocaine before treatment, the entire process typically lasts for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Your skincare professional will determine the course of the treatment based on your individual goals. The most common treatment plan includes a series of 2 - 5 treatments with about 4 - 6 weeks between each session.
