Reduce Acne Scars and Improve Skin Texture and Tone with Collagen Induction at Chicago’s Iteld Plastic Surgery
Your skin uses collagen to naturally repair itself, so it makes sense to tap into that amazing ability to improve the look and feel of your face, right? With microneedling, our Chicago-based team at Iteld Surgery can prompt specialized cells to make fresh batches of revitalizing collagen, ideal for repairing acne scars, as well as addressing fine lines and wrinkles, spots, and other common cosmetic issues.
Using the SKinPen® II, microneedling device, we gently—yes, gently—trigger your immune system to start repair work by creating numerous incredibly tiny channels in the surface of the skin. Each channel encourages collagen production and the development of a new blood vessel network. As your body repairs the “wounds” made by the tiny needles, it also improves the health and appearance of the skin around each channel. As an added bonus, the channels open the skin, making it more receptive to nourishing topical serums and products. Over the weeks following this skin care treatment, you will see more youthful-looking skin that has a beautiful glow.
Patients who want to level up their microneedling results can choose Morpheus8, which adds “radiofrequency energy delivery” to the treatment. In addition to creating microchannels in the skin, the needles convey collageninducing RF deep below the surface to smooth and tighten away laxity.
