Younger Looking Skin without Surgery . . . Just a few Needles!

MicroneedlingMicroneedling is one of the newest anti-aging, scar and stretch mark erasing treatments to be introduced into aesthetic medicine. It is helping our patients regain the smooth, supple skin they once had, and giving them back the confidence that goes along with healthy, glowing skin. If you don’t like the idea of surgery, but you also don’t like the idea of growing old gracefully (really, who wants to grow old at all?), microneedling may be an excellent choice of care for you.

Needling the Face? That Sounds more Painful than Surgery!
At least cosmetic plastic surgery is conducted while you are dreaming away under general anesthesia. Microneedling is minimally invasive and non-surgical, so there is no sleeping through this treatment. How can people sit here and let us DO that to their face? Easy. The instruments are called microneedles for a reason! They are very, very small; so small, in fact, that most patients have no trouble at all completing their session without anesthetic of any kind. This doesn’t mean we expect that from everyone. If you are new to the microneedling game, we’re happy to set your mind at ease by pre-treating your skin with topical numbing cream.

Ok. But WHY?
In order to agree to have anyone stick needles into your face, small as they are, you have to have a reason; there has to be some benefit at the end of all of this. And there is. There are several, actually. But first, let’s go back to the point that the 32-guage needles used in this treatment are TINY. The micro-injuries that are created by the precision insertion of these needles, multiple at a time, seal back up within just a few minutes. That’s how small the needles are! That’s how gentle treatment is. At the same time, it is powerful.

Microneedling is intended for collagen induction. Every tiny puncture that is made invites collagen to swoop in and save the day. But because there is no real injury, the influx of collagen instead works to repair whatever damage is there, and that could be dark spots, acne scars, or other imperfections.
If you have been toying with the idea of improving your skin with microneedling, call our Las Vegas medical institute at (702) 823-5010. You’ll be surprised at just how easy it is to increase collagen with this gentle treatment.

  • 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.

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.
