Treatment overview

Whether it’s acne, sun damage, scarring, and more, many of us deal with damaged facial skin in some capacity.

 Microneedling is a highly effective treatment to help solve these and other common issues. Microneedling uses small gauge needles that create micro channels into the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. As the tissue heals, it reveals new texture and color.



Conditions treatable with microneedling include:




Fine Lines

Acne Scars

Sun Damage

Stretch marks



Benefits of Microneedling

  • Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that has little downtime. Patients are free to resume normal activities following the treatment.
  • Microneedling treatments are relatively painless and can be completed in about one hour at our Vernon Hills office.
  • Microneedling treatments are a much less expensive alternative to laser treatments and plastic surgery.
  • Microneedling treatments are FDA-approved, safe, and proven to be effective.

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including Microneedling. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

Your Microneedling Procedure

As with any treatment at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we will ensure your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.
  • Your aesthetician will begin by applying a topical cream to numb the treatment area. Once the numbing agent sets, a series of small injections are performed with a pen-like device. The repeated motion of microneedling causes controlled injury, allowing collagen and elastin to develop over time to smooth skin in the face or body.



The Recovery

There is minimal downtime associated with microneedling.

You may experience some redness, much like a sunburn around the treatment area, but this should subside shortly after.

-Jeannie Glasstetter
I walked in very hesitant since it was my first time. The facility is clean and well kept and the staff is great! The kind, bed side manner Laura provided, paired with her knowledge and expertise was the icing on the cake! Very happy with the overall experience and results!
-Cora Skoropad

Love Jackie!
My 3 treatment with her!
Magic hands!
My skin looks amazing!
I tell all my friends and coworkers about her and what she does….
Absolutely wonderful!!!

-Marina Turetsky

I have to admit I tend to be skeptical of having treatment to my face however as a former colleague of Jens, I completely entrust her and her expertise with facial procedures and would highly recommend a friend, family member or colleague looking for an esthetician to visit Jen.

Jen is an amazing resource on skincare, products, and knowledgable without pushing product or sales.

I believe she always has my best interest at heart . So much so that I plan an office visit every time I return to Chitown!

Simply put she is amazing and will make you feel the same!

-April Parisi

Jacque helped make my skin feel refreshed again even while pregnant, thank youu! <3
