Improve The Appearance
Microneedling is one of the most effective, nonsurgical skin-renewing treatments available for women and men interested in reducing the appearance of acne scarring, improving skin tone and texture, and achieving a healthy, youthful glow. For anyone seeking an answer to the problem of age-related collagen loss and environmental damage, microneedling at the Chicago area’s John Bull Center may be the ideal choice. We strive to deliver the best microneedling Naperville has to offer.
Also known as collagen induction therapy for its ability to trigger production of the important protein in the skin, microneedling is a treatment employed to address signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scarring, and remove stretch marks. This procedure involves the use of a device covered in tiny needles, which are gently rolled over the surface of the skin, creating tiny holes that stimulate the production of collagen.
Giving Your Skin Strength & Elasticity
Microneedling uses fine, sterile needles to make “micro injuries” in the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s healing capabilities. This is a natural response, because your body is under the impression that the skin is damaged by the needles, which is why it starts to produce collagen—a substance used in repairing wounds and that gives your skin strength and elasticity—and helps to replace dead skin cells through a process known as skin cell turnover.
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, our Naperville microneedling patients will feel like their skin is being subjected to a light massage as the microneedles pass over it, making tiny punctures to trigger the production of collagen.

Exosomes are parts of cells responsible for communicating from cell to cell. Basically, they tell tissue and other cells what to do. For example, if they’re introduced to a wound, they can tell the skin to produce more collagen to speed up cellular turnover to close and repair the injury.
Because exosomes are the center of cellular communication, we’ve learned to program them to perform specific actions that produce a client’s ideal results. Microneedling with exosome therapy is an innovative new treatment that uses the power of your stem cells’ messaging centers—your exosomes—to rejuvenate the skin with a more specific and direct impact on such significant complexion concerns as skin tone and texture irregularities, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, large pores, dullness, and more.
During your treatment, exosomes are extracted and added to a special growth-activating serum, which is then inserted into a special microneedling device that injects it into deeper layers of the skin. Over time and with enough treatments, skin looks smoother, healthier, and a lot more radiant. The process takes the same amount of time as a standard microneedling treatment—about 45 to 60 minutes— and results in smoother, dewy skin that appears healthier and feels firmer. You may need about three microneedling treatments with exosomes, spaced about six to eight weeks apart, to see results. There’s no downtime associated with this therapy, although your skin may appear slightly flushed and feel tender for a day or two after your treatment, as with all microneedling sessions.
The Realistic Expectations
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.

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.
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.
The John Bull Center MediSpa also offers exfoliating chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments that remove the dull outermost layer of skin to expose the more youthful tissue beneath, as well as prompt collagen production. Since there are multiple options for anyone who wants to achieve a rejuvenated look, we will assess your face, listen to your cosmetic goals, and develop the treatment plan ideal for your unique situation.
