In a nutshell, microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a special device (our providers use the SkinPen Precision device, the only FDA-approved microneedling device in the country) to prick the skin. This skin-pricking process results in tiny injuries that prompt the body to produce collagen to heal and repair the injuries. In the weeks following your treatment, new skin will begin to grow over the treated area(s). This new skin is practically blemish free, and is healthier and younger-looking compared to your “old” skin.
Microneedling in Chicago: The Process
To better understand, “What Does Microneeding in Chicago Do?” it’s best to learn a bit about the treatment process.
The microneedling process is actually quite simple. The provider will cleanse your face or other target area(s) before applying a topical numbing cream to help with the discomfort. After the numbing cream has taken effect, the provider will then proceed to press the device on your skin. Depending on the size of the target area(s), the procedure can be completed in 45 minutes or less.
As you can see, the treatment is quick and simple; and it requires no extensive post-treatment care as well.
On that note, your provider will provide you with specific instructions regarding skin care after treatment. Your post-treatment skin care will depend on your skin condition, skin type, and also medical history (if applicable), which means no two aftercare instructions are alike.
