Microneedling (Skinpen), also with PRP
Skin texture is one of the most difficult concerns to treat at home
This is because texture like acne or traumatic scars are a result of your skin doing its best to heal without enough collagen and elastin to recreate a smooth surface. In order to smooth out and improve texture like scars or wrinkles, your skin needs to produce more of these two proteins to reinforce its structure.
Our most aggressive and transformative treatment for texture resurfacing is microneedling in LaSalle with SkinPen.
Treatment Time: 45 minutes
Recovery Period: None
Microneedling uses tiny micro-needles to create controlled injury in the skin, causing your skin’s natural healing process to start. This promotes collagen production and regeneration from within. We also have an option to combine microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma); this process uses your body’s own natural growth factors to stimulate even more regenerative results. This resurfacing treatment is also safe for all skin tones.
- Acne scars
- Traumatic scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Skin laxity
How It Works
Before your treatment with SkinPen microneedling in LaSalle, you'll meet with a LIV Wellness Lounge provider for a complimentary skin consultation. We'll examine your skin, discuss your concerns, and learn about your goals for this treatment. After determining that microneedling is your best treatment option, we'll create a custom treatment plan for you that meets your skin's needs.
If your microneedling treatment is with PRP, we will first draw a small blood sample to extract the platelet-rich growth factors. Your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to prep your skin and ensure your comfort for the procedure. Next, they will use the SkinPen device across your skin. If receiving PRP, they will use this in conjunction with the microneedling treatment to deliver the proteins into your skin.
Microneedling stimulates your skin to begin healing itself, so results are progressive. There is no downtime for this treatment. We achieve the best results after a full treatment plan course, typically 3 to 5 sessions total.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is microneedling with PRP better?
The combination of SkinPen microneedling and delivery of growth factors can produce better results.
How often should I get microneedling?
For a series of microneedling treatments, we recommend you get microneedling every 4 to 6 weeks to allow adequate healing time between treatment sessions.
Can microneedling tighten skin?
Since skin laxity is caused by a breakdown of skin structure due to loss of collagen and elastin, microneedling can help tighten skin by stimulating new production of these two proteins.

"Just went for the first time with my boyfriend to get IV therapy- wow we are blown away! They are SO friendly and welcoming. We received a tour and they took their time and didn’t rush even when we were their last customers of the day. We are already feeling energetic and relaxed after our treatment. Small things like hand warmers, sparkling water, recliners and heated blankets show they go above and beyond to make sure you’re comfortable. Elysia was amazing!!!! Will definitely be back :)"
