Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a treatment offered at Essex Skin Chicago that uses a device to create tiny holes in the skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process. In turn, you can expect a boost in collagen production and an improvement in texture, fine lines, and acne scarring.
Topical numbing cream ensures a comfortable treatment and expected down time is 24-72 hours of redness. Makeup can be worn the following day.
