Revitalize Your Facial Features

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling has become a popular treatment for its ability to safely improve the appearance of the skin without synthetic solutions, surgical techniques, chemicals, or adverse reactions. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy and works by initiating a healing process within your own body. We offer two microneedling treatments: traditional microneedling with the SkinPen® and RF microneedling with the Vivace® Microneedle RF Device.

How does SkinPen®
Microneedling work?

SkinPen® Microneedling is an FDA-approved device that uses single-use, sterile cartridges full of tiny, thin needles to create micro-wounds in the top layer of the skin, which result in microchannels that reach into the deeper layers. The body perceives these microchannels as injuries and heals them by increasing collagen and elastin production. In doing so, the body naturally perfects the skin. It improves the most common skin imperfections and signs of aging, including hyperpigmentation, large pores, uneven skin tone, textural irregularities, lines, wrinkles, poor quality skin, and skin laxity. The treatment temporarily improves the skin’s absorption rate, allowing it to better absorb any anti-aging topical products applied during and after treatment.

RF Microneedling With the Vivace® Microneedle RF Device

RF microneedling uses a combination of needles and radiofrequency energy to stimulate natural collagen production.

This treatment is similar to standard microneedling, but with the added radiofrequency energy, it can target collagen production with different technology. Radiofrequency energy has become known as the gold standard of skin care treatments because it tightens and firms the skin by causing existing collagen to contract and stimulating the body to produce new collagen in the treatment area.

Youthfully Brighter, Firmer Skin

Microneedling Results

After microneedling Oak Brook & Elmhurst patients will start to notice an improvement in the areas treated over the next couple of weeks as collagen production ramps up. The appearance, texture, and elasticity of your complexion will continue to improve as cellular regeneration takes place, with optimal results appearing about three months after your procedure. You can maintain the health and aesthetic quality of your skin with regular skincare, combination treatment, and follow-up treatment as needed.

No Downtime Needed

Microneedling Recovery and Aftercare

When it comes to recovery time following microneedling Elmhurst & Oak Brook patients will find it is minimal, with no downtime needed. Your skin may appear red following your treatment, but this will subside quickly. While your skin heals, you should avoid direct sun exposure, extreme heat, and skincare products with harsh ingredients. We are happy to provide you with detailed instructions and answer any questions that may arise during any phase of your treatment.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Minimally Invasive. Maximal Impact.

Your Microneedling Procedure

For both traditional microneedling and RF microneedling, a skilled skin treatment specialist will perform your treatment in our office. Requiring no anesthesia or significant preparation, these treatments typically take less than an hour, depending on the size of the targeted area or areas and any add-ons you may wish to include. First, your specialist will cleanse the treatment area, ensuring it is free of bacteria or debris. After applying a numbing solution and allowing it to sit for several minutes, your microneedling treatment will begin. While you lie back comfortably, your specialist will use a handheld tool to administer your microneedling or RF microneedling treatment, making sure to apply your treatment evenly throughout the targeted area and adjusting the depth of the needles for the various areas (such as the delicate skin around the eyes). Microneedling treatment is quite tolerable for most patients, though it can feel a bit intense. If your treatment includes radiofrequency, you can expect to experience a warming sensation. Other details of your procedure will vary according to your customized plan.

Get Started

Enhancing Your Results With Combination Treatments

While both of these treatments will help change your skin for the better, there are ways to enhance your results. We can do this by incorporating combination treatments into your session.

The Macro Effect

Microneedling With PRF & Nanoparticle Technology

Adding Nanoparticle Technology to Your Treatment

During each of these treatments, the needles create microchannels that increase the skin’s absorption rate. We can enhance your results by capitalizing on this temporary increased absorption rate with growth factors and anti-aging topical serums. You’ll have the option of adding PRF, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, to your treatment as well as nanoparticle technology.

The Benefits of PRF and Nanoparticle Technology

Both PRF and nanoparticle technology contain growth factors that can enhance the treatment results when applied during and after the treatment. PRF is derived from your blood. It is the healing component of your blood that, when isolated and prepared into a topical form, can further stimulate collagen production, increase cellular renewal rate, and deliver anti-aging benefits to the skin. Nanoparticle technology works similarly and contains anti-aging ingredients and growth factors that can help the cells better communicate with each other to heal themselves and restore health and youth to the skin.

Microneedling With Chemical Peel in Oak Brook, IL

Chemical peels are the perfect add-on treatment to a microneedling or RF microneedling treatment plan. They can help repair the skin by removing the excess layer of dead skin cells and dissolving them with a combination of skin-safe acids. By removing the dead skin cell barrier, chemical peels will prepare your skin for the needling process. Chemical peels take minutes to complete based on your desired or necessary depth of exfoliation. Once the chemical peel dissolves the layers of skin, we can perform the needling process and apply anti-aging topical products to better absorb into the skin’s deeper layers without having to pass through a layer of dead skin cells.

Microneedling Frequently Asked Questions

Both of these treatments deliver gradual results. All patients can expect some initial results, but the most visible ones appear in the weeks following treatment. It can take the body up to 12 weeks to produce new collagen in the treatment area, and when it does, you’ll notice an improvement in your specific problem areas.

You will see results from just one treatment, but optimal results typically come from a series of treatments. At your initial consultation, we can give you a better idea of the total number of treatments you will need to address your specific concerns. Patients who want to treat superficial skin concerns typically need fewer treatment sessions than those who have more advanced skin concerns, like deep lines, wrinkles, or acne scars.

Another reason that both of these treatments are so popular is that they don’t require social downtime. Your skin may appear red and tight immediately following treatment and may even peel; a completely normal reaction that is a sign that the treatment is working. All of this will subside quickly. After that, you’ll need to follow the post-care instructions, including avoiding sun exposure and using the right topical products while avoiding harsh, anti-aging ones.

Both microneedling and RF microneedling treatments are minimally invasive and aim to improve the skin without synthetic ingredients or invasive techniques. For that reason, most patients make good candidates for treatment. While these treatments are known for their ability to increase natural collagen production, they’re also versatile and can address many common skin concerns.
