Microneedling with SkinPen is a cost-effective treatment for skin rejuvenation in Chicago, IL

Microneedling is a simple and effective cosmetic treatment that uses our body’s natural healing process to improve the tone and texture of the skin. At Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery, we use the SkinPen microneedling tool. With SkinPen, we can create well defined, micro-injuries at varying depths to achieve maximum skin rejuvenation. Whether you are concerned about uneven texture, acne, or scarring, SkinPen can help.

About SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is appropriate for use on all skin colors and textures. With SkinPen, the depth is adjustable which makes it appropriate for use on multiple areas of the body. SkinPen microneedling is known for its ability to treat areas that can be difficult to target with a laser.

Some of the most common treatment areas include: face, neck, décolletage, back, arms, hands, and legs.

How it works:

Our body reacts to injuries by producing new cells and other materials such as collagen and elastin to heal any damage. Microneedling leverages this natural process by using the SkinPen to create hundreds of tiny micro-channels in the skin. SkinPen is done without the use of thermal energy or chemicals.

What to expect from SkinPen

After the procedure, patients may experience side effects similar to sunburn. This can include redness, swelling, and tenderness. There is no significant downtime after the procedure; patients are free to resume daily routines immediately. Most side effects from SkinPen can be covered with make-up.

Multiple sessions are typically required to see optimal results; however, many patients see improvements about a week after the first session. Results will improve as the healing process continues to stimulate production of healthy new cells.
