A New Way to Renew

What is Microneedling?

As we age, we experience declining levels of collagen—the protein that gives skin its firmness, elasticity, and strength—opening the door to fine lines, wrinkles, and laxity.

Dark spots, acne scars, and other types of damage can also leave their mark, resulting in uneven skin texture and tone. Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates your body's natural healing process to generate new skin cells. Microneedling skin rejuvenation is an ideal treatment for patients interested in improving the health, appearance, and texture of their skin naturally. Skin Deep Medical Spa assists your body by stimulating its own natural healing response with Rejuvapen™, causing it to produce new skin cells. If you are interested in microneedling skin rejuvenation, contact us today to schedule a consultation at our Glenview or Highland Park offices.

Who Is It For?

What are the benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling skin rejuvenation has a wide range of applications. It can be used to treat anything from scarring to large pores, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling is great for people of all skin types, even those with sensitive skin, and can also be used on any area of the body. Ideal candidates are those beginning to see the effects of aging and scarring in specific areas and are interested in avoiding surgical treatments. This treatment can improve your skin in many different ways, helping with problems that include:

  • Large pores
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
  • Poor skin texture
  • Irregular skin tone
  • Acne scars

Microneedling can be a good treatment option if you're noticing the signs of aging but aren't interested in surgery or more complex procedures. Microneedling is performed as an outpatient procedure at Skin Deep Medical Spa and requires no downtime.

How Does It Work?

Your Microneedling Procedure

Microneedling skin rejuvenation makes use of your body’s natural healing process using Rejuvapen™.

This process is enhanced by the use of topical products absorbed into the targeted area during the treatment through the microscopic channels created. Elastin and collagen production is increased as new skin cells are created. These proteins give our skin its strength, firmness, and elasticity, which are necessary ingredients for a healthy complexion. These elements naturally decrease as we age, requiring procedures like microneedling to stimulate production again.

Procedure Time Span

How Long Does It Take?

During your appointment, a member of our experienced staff will use Rejuvapen™ to create microscopic channels on the skin in the desired treatment area. Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes but can vary based on the targeted area. After your appointment, you can immediately return to your daily activities, although strenuous activity should be avoided for 24 hours.

The number of treatments you need is determined by the health of your skin and the issue you are looking to address, but on average, patients receive three or four treatments, with each one occurring about one month apart. Because we stimulate the body to perform its own healing, results can be seen over the course of several weeks but will continue to improve for three to six months as your body produces new cells. Afterward, we recommend an annual microneedling treatment to maintain your results.

What is Rejuvapen™?

About Rejuvapen™?

Rejuvapen™ is a treatment that uses an advanced microneedling device to encourage the skin’s natural ability to create healthier skin. The repair process creates microscopic channels that allow topical skincare products to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin, stimulating the healing process further. The production of new collagen and elastin has the ability to reverse sun damage, reduce the look of acne scars, and revitalize the skin.

Emerge Renewed

Microneedling Recovery and Aftercare

After the procedure, your skin may appear red and feel slightly sensitive or swollen, comparable to a mild sunburn.

These side effects typically resolve within a few hours to a few days. We will advise you on avoiding irritants while the area heals, including excessive sun exposure, heat, or skincare products with harsh active ingredients for a few days following the procedure. Many people benefit from a series of sessions. Your provider will help you decide on the best treatment plan for your needs, with sessions spaced out at intervals of about one month apart.

Confidence Looks Good on You

Microneedling Results

Following your microneedling session, your skin starts its natural renewal process. You'll notice smoother, tighter, refreshed-looking skin within several weeks, with continued improvement for three to six months as your skin continues the regeneration process. You can expect to see improvements in specific areas of concern as well as holistic rejuvenation for a smoother, more even complexion.

Most men and women have about three to four microneedling treatments, each a month apart, for ideal skin rejuvenation results. Your treatment plan may vary, however. In general, if mild skin refreshing is the goal, you'll need fewer treatments. If major skin resurfacing is the goal, you may need more. Once you’ve attained your desired results, the Skin Deep Medical Spa team typically recommends microneedling sessions once a year to maintain your results.

MicroneedlingFrequently Asked Questions

During a microneedling session, your Skin Deep Medical Spa provider uses a specialized treatment device called Rejuvapen™ to create microscopic skin perforations within your skin's uppermost layers. The needle length is adjustable according to your needs. For example, if light skin refreshing is your goal, you’ll likely need the most shallow perforations, while acne scar smoothing usually requires deeper perforations. The perforations stimulate your body's natural repair processes, including new skin cell creation, fresh collagen growth, and new elastin production. To enhance the process further, your specialist adds topical serums that sink into the skin channels and encourage skin renewal.

Yes, depending on your treatment goals, you can also combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) treatment, as both can have remarkable skin regeneration abilities on their own. The channels created by microneedling provide the perfect conduit for your skin to soak up these rejuvenating solutions, making microneedling with PRP or PRFM a powerful combination for restoring a smoother, more even, and resilient complexion.
