Improving the Appearance of the Skin with Gentle Microneedling Technique

Modern times are very exciting for men and women who desire a more youthful appearance, but do not want cosmetic surgery. At Sahara Medical Institute, we are proud to be at the forefront of aesthetic medicine. One of the innovative modalities we use to help our patients feel better about their skin is a gentle microneedling technique.

What Microneedling can do for Your Skin

There are a number of goals that may be achieved with our Eclipse Micropen microneedling treatment. These include:

  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Promote skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • Reduce stretch marks

How Microneedling Promotes More Attractive Skin

Microneedle treatmentsDuring microneedling treatment, a medical-grade device is moved across the skin. Tiny needles create thousands of micro-channels in the epidermis. The technique elicits a response through which collagen and elastin fibers are rebuilt over time. As the underlying support network regenerates itself, the skin becomes tighter and more even in tone.

Why Microneedling is a Popular Anti-aging Treatment

The appearance of the skin is vital to confidence. Microneedling provides a cost-effect path toward rejuvenation and scar reduction. The procedure is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. People of all skin tones, as well, can obtain treatment without the risk of side effects. Because the skin begins to heal immediately, microneedling does not require down time. It is appropriate for the face and neck, as well as other areas of the body, including the abdomen, arms, and legs.

Care Customized to Your Needs

Microneedling can be an excellent solution to a variety of skin concerns. In order to determine if this treatment is right for you, we will conduct a comprehensive consultation and an assessment of your skin.  Our goal in this visit is to identify your needs and your expectations so that we may tailor a treatment program to meet them in the way best suited to your time frame and budget.

Improved skin health can improve your life. Call Sahara Medical Institute to learn more about microneedling and other aesthetic treatments. (702) 823-5010.


Want Tighter Skin? Consider the Benefits of Carboxytherapy.

In this day and age, we have heard of just about every conceivable method of rejuvenating skin that has lost its youthful elasticity. Men and women who want to turn back time on their face and body can now do so without having to go under the knife. From Botox to dermal fillers to ultrasound therapy, there are numerous anti-aging techniques that achieve dramatic results. For those interested in a natural approach to rejuvenation, there is Carboxytherapy.

A Proven Therapy you Haven’t Heard of
What is interesting about Carboxytherapy is that this method of wrinkle, scar, and cellulite reduction has been popular in Europe for well over half a century. In the early 1900s, physicians discovered the power of carbon dioxide in wound healing. Since that time, research has investigated how this naturally occurring gas can improve appearance, as well.

CarboxytherapyCarbon dioxide is produced by every cell in the body. What this means to you is that Carboxytherapy does not insert any foreign substance into your skin. Treatment consists of tiny injections of carbon dioxide in an area of concern. Where CO2 exists, the body perceives a lack of oxygen, which it then directs toward the treated area. The influx of oxygen promotes circulation that stimulates the regeneration of healthy cells. Carbon dioxide also has a positive effect on collagen rebuilding and on the breakdown of fat.

Carboxytherapy is commonly used to address the signs of aging on the face and body. It can also minimize cellulite on the thighs, abdomen, arms, and other areas, and can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. More and more, patients seeking tighter, more youthful skin are requesting information about Carbon Dioxide Therapy.

Better Skin Without Surgery
If you are beginning to notice the signs of aging on your skin, Carboxytherapy offers an all-natural, non-surgical approach to enhanced beauty. Several treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome. Depending on the extent of treatment, appointments may last from 15 minutes to about an hour.

After treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities with minimal side effects. The most common sensation that patients report is mild pressure in the area treated with carbon dioxide. Over a short period of time, the body absorbs and diffuses the gas, which may result in slight bruising or redness.
