Micro-Needling & PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Chicago

Micro-Needling (also called Collagen Induction Therapy) can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications including acne scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, large pores, fine wrinkles, and (when combined with platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration. The results are overall younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.

Micro-Needling Helps Treat: 

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Uneven texture, tone & color
  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars
  • Traumatic and surgical scars
  • Photo aging
  • Mild to moderate skin laxity

Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, Micro-Needling tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates skin by naturally stimulating collagen production. Your physiological wound response stimulates new healthy dermal and epidermal tissue growth.

No laser heat is introduced, so unlike fractional laser treatments, IPL, and laser resurfacing, Micro-Needling is safe for all skin tones and there is minimal downtime, minimal discomfort, and an almost immediate outcome.

This treatment provides dramatic results in wrinkle and fine line reduction, pore size reduction, scar and acne scar, pigmentation and stretch mark reduction. Some patients will see visible results after just one treatment, however most will need several treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, dependent on the condition to be treated and the desired outcome.

When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is infused with the Micro-Needling device, your procedure is taken to a whole new level! PRP is cutting edge therapy in the field of cosmetic enhancements. Although the procedure is relatively new to aesthetics in the U.S., for many years PRP has been recognized as an effective treatment in sports injury, diabetic ulcer treatment, and orthopedics to name a few.

Now cosmetic patients who wish to use their own body’s regenerative powers can do so without the concerns of infection, foreign material, or surgical interventions. PRP enhances the outcome of your procedure because the internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors which aid in promoting new collagen plus cell & tissue growth.

PRP is obtained with a simple & quick process:

  • The practitioner draws an amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test.
  • The practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge. It spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.

Your PRP professional is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma which is then infused with the Micro-Needling device, leaving you fresh-faced and glowing!
