What is Microneedling?
Elysium SurgiSpa is proud to offer microneedling, a process that punctures tiny holes in the skin on your face, neck, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. As an extra benefit, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be applied to the same region to help tissue heal and permit the skin to grow new cells. Both of these procedures together can lessen the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, spots, and other skin issues. The feel of your skin can be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to learn more about microneedling with or without PRP, schedule a private consultation at our office in Chicago, IL.

How Is Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling is ideal to address dry skin, uneven skin tone, rough texture, age spots, wrinkles, acne, and scarring. During your treatment at Elysium SurgiSpa, your skin will be cleaned before the rolling handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is done, a treatment, such as PRP or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. The small needles used will not damage your skin but instead will help stimulate collagen production. If you are adding PRP, we will take a small sample of your blood from your arm prior to your treatment. The blood will be spun through a centrifuge machine to separate platelet-rich plasma before the solution is applied to your skin during your microneedling session. Afterward, you may have temporary swelling, redness, and bruising. Within 1 – 2 months, you should notice your skin improvements as the collagen and elastin levels increase. You should schedule maintenance treatments every few weeks to maintain lasting skin health.
Enhance the appearance and health of your complexion with microneedling sessions at Elysium SurgiSpa. A nonsurgical treatment that may give you impressive improvements, microneedling prompts your natural collagen production for smoother, firmer skin. For further skin rejuvenation, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to your skin during your treatment.
