Effective acne resolution: Microneedling near me in Crown Point
Most teens develop acne when hormonal changes occur in the transition to adulthood. The condition may continue to flare up throughout life, leaving permanent scarring. Men and women in the Chicagoland area have access to a minimally-invasive option near me at Dermatology NWI in Crown Point. It is called microneedling, and it is extremely effective resolving even old acne scarring.
Can microneedling help acne scarring?
This technique is known as collagen induction therapy or CIT. It stimulates natural production of collagen, fibrous proteins that keep skin smooth, firm, resilient, and thick.
- First, skin is cleansed.
- A topical numbing agent is applied to skin to ensure a comfortable treatment experience.
- Skin is lubricated with water or a nourishing serum.
- The clinician glides the handpiece over the treatment area, which can be a zone or full face. The device contains a multitude of short, hair-fine needles. They penetrate skin to a carefully controlled depth, creating microcolumns that break up acne scarring and trigger collagen production.
- There may be minor blood seepage, but it is gently wiped away with a final cleansing and application of moisturizing sunscreen.
A microneedling session takes less than an hour. You may return to normal activities right away, and wear makeup the next day. While treatment is personalized at Dermatology NWI, our skin care experts generally recommend a series of monthly treatments for optimal skin rejuvenation.
Microneedling is safe for all skin types. In addition to remediation of acne scars, CIT smooths fine lines, wrinkles, and sags; improves overall skin tone and texture; and refines pore size. With periodic re-treatment, skin retains a healthy glow.
Benefits of infusion therapy
Because microneedling creates countless access points in skin, therapeutic absorption of skin nourishing serums is dramatically increased. We can recommend a “cocktail” designed for your needs, from anti-aging to hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, dull complexion, and of course, acne scars. It is a terrific way to pamper skin and get the most out of your investment in microneedling.
