How Does Microneedling Work?

What Can Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling is ideal for addressing acne, reducing scars, and filling in lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a younger and more vibrant look. It can also reduce pigmentation irregularities and help to repair UV damage from the sun.

The tissue regeneration triggered by a microneedling treatment lasts for months, keeping your skin firm and healthy long-term—and not only on the face. Our team can customize your treatment, allowing you to target the skin on virtually any area of your body.

What Is a Microneedling Treatment Like?

The best option for patients considering microneedling is to visit a provider who is well versed in the technology and experienced in using it to treat a range of patients. The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa team in Naperville, IL, will ensure the treatment is performed safely and instruct you on how to take care of your skin in the days following your session.

The procedure starts with a cleansing face wash, after which an anesthetic is applied to reduce sensation. Then, a serum is spread over the surface of the skin to allow the microneedling device to glide smoothly without causing discomfort.

During the procedure itself, the needles create tiny channels, allowing the serum to penetrate below the surface and treat the skin as well.

For about an hour, you will feel like your skin is being subjected to a light massage as the microneedles pass over it, making tiny punctures to trigger the production of collagen.

What Microneedling Results Can Be Expected?

Microneedling is one of the simplest, safest, and most effective skin rejuvenation treatments available, but it is important to remember that the results of a session will develop gradually, typically becoming apparent after four to six weeks.

You may experience redness and minimal swelling for a few days following your procedure. For 48 hours after a microneedling treatment, you must avoid sweating as much as possible. This means no workouts, hot showers, or massages.

You should also refrain from wearing makeup for at least 12 hours and avoid shaving for the next two days, to allow your skin uninterrupted time to heal.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Microneedling in Western Chicago?

Microneedling can be used on any skin type, from surfaces that are naturally smooth to skin that has been marked by chickenpox or acne. The treatment is commonly chosen by people whose skin has begun to lose its elasticity over time due to a natural drop in collagen production.

Ideal candidates are free from skin infections, generally healthy, and understand the result possible.
