What is Microneedling?
If home skin treatments aren't effective, but you don't want surgery, nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling, at Body Werks Chicago may be just what you need. Our dedicated team is pleased to offer microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our Chicago, IL office. It's possible you could benefit from microneedling treatments if you experience light or mild skin problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity, or if you'd like to minimize the appearance of pores, stretch marks, and/or scars. Microneedling uses many fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of your skin, which prompts the body's natural production of collagen and elastin and increases the health and appearance of your complexion. Schedule a consultation at Body Werks Chicago to hear more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize your treatment for your needs and goals.

"I booked an appointment back on May 27th which was a Thursday. I knew i was not going to be able to keep my appointment. So i canceled my appointment on Monday before i was scheduled. I asked for my deposit back several times since you had to put it down to reserve an appointment . Nobody never returned my call and my deposit was not returned. It’s now June 13th. I found the staff to be very unprofessional and inconsiderate of my time and money. My recommendation stands is don’t go!! If they treat you like this before being serviced then it only leaves little room for the imagination as to what spirit they’ll work in throughout the process."- V.T. / Facebook / Jun 14, 2021
"The service provided by Vanessa was excellent! I recently had a Vajacial & a sugar Brazilian wax for the first time. I was extremely nervous at first, but she answered all my questions. Vanessa is very knowledgeable about everything which made me very comfortable. I felt like I was talking to one of my friends. I also love the fact all the products they use is all natural. As soon as I walked in the staff was friendly & professional I will be returning for other services soon."- Y.B. / Google / Nov 22, 2020

Am I A Candidate For Microneedling?
You may be a candidate for microneedling if you experience light to moderate complexion problems, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the appearance of scars, large pores, and stretch marks. You need to be willing to wait before seeing the results of your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require a month or longer to have an effect on the skin; however, you will see results that look natural and gain better overall skin health with a brighter, softer, and clearer complexion. Patients with an open wound or lesion, an active infection, or wound healing problems may not be microneedling candidates. During your consultation, we will examine your skin and review any relevant medical history to ensure you can enjoy the many benefits of microneedling at Body Werks Chicago.
What Can I Expect from My Microneedling Treatment?
Your microneedling treatment will be done in a private treatment room with numbing cream or local anesthesia if requested, but most patients experience mild pain and discomfort. You can expect your session to take between 30 – 60 minutes. The skin being treated will be cleansed before one of our skilled team members evenly passes our state-of-the-art microneedling handpiece over your treatment areas. After the microneedling is complete, a serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your particular skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen since the treated skin will be sensitive after the treatment. You may develop some redness and swelling, but this should fade in about a day. It could take 1 – 2 months to see visible improvements in your skin as it takes time for the collagen and elastin supplies to increase. Follow-up sessions every 4 – 6 weeks are suggested at our Chicago, IL office for the best outcomes and long-term skin benefits.
Does microneedling hurt?
Body Werks Chicago offers numbing cream and local anesthesia to patients who are concerned about pain. While microneedling does cause some mild discomfort, it is temporary and subsides once the treatment has ended. Our patients say that any discomfort is well worth the benefits they receive from this rejuvenating skin treatment.
Who should avoid microneedling?
Patients who have a medical history of skin issues or infections should get an assessment from one of our team members. We can decide whether microneedling is safe or effective for your skin. Pregnant women should also avoid microneedling at this time. Please inform our team if you have had poor reactions to similar treatments in the past.
When can I wear makeup again after microneedling?
Skin is sensitive after microneedling, so patients should wait 48 – 72 hours before applying makeup or other cosmetics. We recommend scheduling treatment during a time when you are planning to stay home. Patients in Chicago, IL, who are getting microneedling in preparation for an event like a wedding or reunion should allow enough time for their skin to heal before taking part in social activities.
