Non-Invasive Microneedling for Our Skokie, IL Patients
New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa offers non-invasive microneedling to Skokie, IL patients as a way to improve the look and feel of your skin. MicroPen Microneedling provides overall younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging in most patients. It involves inserting tiny, fine needles that range in diameter from 0.5 and 2.5 millimeters into the skin. Using a dermaroller comprised with these micro-fine needles, your skin reaps the benefits. You’ll get radiant skin after one treatment and continue to see improvements over time. Contact us to see what microneedling can do for your skin.

SkinPen by Bellus Medical
We use SkinPen by Bellus Medical, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. The SkinPen causes
controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective at the remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. The patient goes through an inflammation process where piercing the skin triggers their immune system to disinfect the wounds and remove debris from the skin. Then their skin enters the proliferation phase where the wounds are rebuilt with new granulation cells. Lastly, the remodeling phase is when the wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. Most patients see visible results after one treatment and need several treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, dependent on the condition to be treated and the desired outcome.
