As you age your skin’s natural exfoliation slows. This is also often accompanied by a reduction of collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis.

As the natural process of skin aging continues to progress fine lines, and wrinkles can develop as the skin loses an increasing amount of elasticity. While exfoliating creams with retinol or microdermabrasion treatments can certainly help stimulate the replenishment of skin cells, collagen elasticity issues might still be afoot.

In a situation like this the Lux Spa in Chicago, Illinois, can perform a microneedling treatment. Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, this mode of treatment is designed to stimulate your skin to promote collagen production.

This helps to thicken the skin to help rejuvenate some of its youthful elasticity, firmness, and tone. In some cases, a micro-needling treatment can also help to heal damaged skin and give you a healthier, more youthful appearance.

The Lux Spa’s professional aesthetician will begin by numbing the treatment area to help you remain comfortable throughout the process. Once this is done a microneedling pen is used to create microscopic puncture points.

This effectively stimulates the healing factors of your body to promote collagen and elastin production in the dermal layers.

Afterward, we might also recommend using a daily exfoliating cream to help maintain the youthful tone and luster of your skin.

If you live in the Chicago, Illinois, area and you need help dealing with the appearance of skin aging on your face, you should call 773-868-4800 to set up a consultation at the Lux Spa.
