Dermatologist in Chicago, IL uses SkinPen treatments to rejuvenate patients’ skin
Do you suffer from wrinkles, stretch marks, or acne scarring? You’re not alone. These are some of the most common skin concerns among patients in Chicago, IL. At Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery, we have a solution to these problems called SkinPen. SkinPen is a type of micro needling procedure that uses the body’s natural healing process to promote collagen and elastin production and improve the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scarring. Patients all over Chicago, IL are getting excellent results with SkinPen.
What is SkinPen?
SkinPen is an effective, state-of-the-art micro needling device that is superior to other dermarollers currently on the market. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure to dramatically improve the appearance of the skin. The non-ablative treatment stimulates the body to produce new collagen which can improve skin texture, minimize scarring, and reduce the visible signs of aging and sun damage such as fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation.
SkinPen is extremely versatile, as it can be used on all different skin types and colors as well as different areas of the body. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, décolletage, back, arms, hands, abdomen, and legs.

How SkinPen Works:
Before the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. A sterile, disposable micro-needle cartridge is attached to the end of the SkinPen device. The technician will then use a thin layer of serum on the skin before gliding the pen gently across the desired area. The SkinPen produces tiny micro injuries that stimulate healing and collagen production without causing scar tissue.
SkinPen treatments are virtually painless and require no significant downtime. Immediately following the procedure, the skin will appear pink like a mild sunburn for at least the first 24 hours and up to several days. Our team can provide recommendations for products that will aid in the healing process. In three to four days, the top layer of skin will begin sloughing away, which is a completely normal part of the healing process. Make-up can be applied to cover any pinkness.
Results from SkinPen
Patients should expect to see noticeable results within a week of treatment and will continue to see gradual improvement as the skin heals and the body begins producing more collagen and elastin.
While patients with fine lines or uneven skin tone may only require one session, most patients will need several sessions to achieve optimal results. The typical treatment plan is two to three sessions spaced a month apart. Patients with deep acne scars and wrinkles, stretch marks, or severe sun damage may need as many as six to eight sessions.
Candidates for SkinPen
As stated before, SkinPen is appropriate for use on a wide variety of skin colors and types. This is because SkinPen is a non-thermal, non-ablative skin rejuvenation system. Unlike treatments that use heat, SkinPen uses multi-speed micro needling cartridges that can be adjusted to the appropriate depth. SkinPen can even be used on darker skin.
