MICRONEEDLING | Chicago AESTHETICS Med Spa
Microneedling by SkinPen® treatments can give you clear, younger looking skin
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin treatment procedure helps build collagen and elastin by creating “micro-injuries” to the skin which stimulates the healing process.
Microneedling is safe on all skin types and treats many skin conditions including:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
SkinPen Microneedling is the only legally marketed & FDA cleared microneedling device in the U.S. and now available at Chicago Aesthetics.
Microneedling Frequently Asked Questions
For best results, you only need 3-6 treatments depending on your skin type. The exact number of sessions will depend on your aesthetic goals.
Your provider may recommend additional treatments and medical grade skin care products such as skinbetter or skinceuticals to get the best results.
Prior to your treatment, your provider will numb the area to minimize discomfort.
During your treatment you may feel a tingling sensation and light vibration from the microneedling tool. Most patients find the treatment to be relatively painless.
To prepare for your treatment, you should avoid skin irritation one month prior such as direct sun exposure, sunbathing, or tanning. Additionally, you should:
- Stop the use of irritant topical products 1 week before your treatment. This includes retinol and retinoids.
- Stop the use of Accutane for at least 6 months prior to your treatment.
- Arrive to your appointment with clean skin (no makeup, lotions, perfume, jewelry or other skin products on the area being treated).
This treatment may become a little uncomfortable if used at a higher setting, but a topical numbing cream and cooling device will be provided to help with any discomfort during your treatment.
The treated area may be pink and mildly inflamed (similar to the appearance of a mild sunburn) for 24-48 hours following your SkinPen microneedling procedure.
You should keep your skin clean from make-up or use of any skin products for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
We recommend waiting for 48 hours following your treatment to resume exercise.
You will start to see some results within 5-7 days but will continue to improve.
The cost of your microneedling treatment starts at $349 per treatment. Most patients need 3 treatments for the best results and offer special pricing for purchase of microneedling packages or 3 or more. We customize each treatment plan to each individual patient. At Chicago Aesthetics Med Spa, we have a variety of different treatments available that can be combined to give our patients the best results.
