What Types of Treatments and Procedures Are Offered at a Medspa?

by | Dec 16, 2019 | Healthcare

When your skin is looking less than its best, it is time to schedule a treatment with your medspa in the Chicago Loop. Many of our skin rejuvenation treatments are minimally invasive, allowing you to return to work or daily life immediately after your quick appointment.


Few skin treatments offer a wider range of benefits than microneedling. It helps to improve skin impacted by problems including wrinkles, scarring, blemishes, stretch marks, and more. Microneedling works through induced skin injuries that trigger the formation of new collagen.

A microneedling treatment begins with a thorough numbing of your skin using a topical anesthetic.

After your skin has grown completely numb, we gently glide a microneedling device over your skin, forming thousands of micro-punctures in it. Over the next few weeks and months, new skin tissue will build into the treatment area, improving problems like sun damage, scars, and signs of aging.

Glycolic Acid Peel

Mild acids like glycolic acid help to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This material can have a dulling effect on your complexion. Removing it periodically can immediately brighten your complexion. A glycolic peel works best when it is performed on a regular basis, since dead skin cells can once again accumulate on the surface of your skin.

Phenol Peel

Stronger acids like phenol or carbolic acid can be used in more serious cases like deep scars and wrinkles. This type of peel will remove the epidermis and portions of the dermis layer of skin. It is normally only performed once and requires sedation and significant downtime.

If you are ready to take your skin to the next level with a skin treatment at our medspa in the Chicago Loop, please contact Northwestern Specialists in Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation.
