What is Microneedling?
Oculo Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint is happy to offer microneedling at his office in Las Vegas, NV. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-channels help to prompt the body's natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that increase the health and appearance of the skin. Easily combined with other treatments, like vitamin serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling may help reduce wrinkles, pores, scars, and stretch marks. Schedule an appointment at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery to learn more about microneedling and how it can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
"Looking 10 Years Younger!!!! I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before - Dr. Myint performed my brow lift two weeks ago, and I absolutely love the results. The procedure resulted in minimal discomfort relieved by Tylenol for two days. Before my brow lift, I disliked looking at pictures of myself, and always appeared exhausted. Now I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before. I have tried multiple non-invasive lasers over the last few years, and have even tried injectables. I am very happy that I consulted with Dr. Myint and proceeded with a surgical procedure that will benefit my looks for many years to come. If you want youthful, beautiful, natural-looking results, treat yourself to Dr. Myint's talents. Dr. Myint is highly accomplished, has a superb bedside manner, and will provide ample information before and after the procedure."- E. / RealSelf / Jun 15, 2020
"I have been a patient of Dr. Myint for the last few years and I'm extremely happy with his expertise and results. He is truly knowledgable and highly talented. A real artist in the best sense of the word. He is also very good in reconstruction surgery and in fixing the mistakes of other doctors. His results are natural and always perfect. As a model and beauty queen I wouldn't trust anyone else."- L.S. / Yelp / Aug 13, 2020
"The results look natural and my friends and family say I look refreshed - Another plastic surgeon initially referred me to Dr. Myint because he specializes in eyelid surgeries. I also did a consultation with another surgeon, but after meeting with Dr. Myint, I knew he was the one. I was impressed by his honesty, candid responses to my questions and that he did not try to oversell me on additional procedures. I felt so comfortable with Dr. Myint that I decided to have the lower bleph and mini facelift surgeries done together because of the similar recovery time frames. Dr. Myint is a masterful surgeon with a reassuring demeanor. I had the lower bleph and mini facelift surgery 2-1/2 months ago and I am amazed and very pleased with the results. On the day of surgery, I could see Dr. Myint's experience and artistry as he did the markings and explained the procedures. I felt calm and reassured that I was in the best hands for the surgery. Dr. Myint and his staff were professional and responsive to my questions pre and post-operation. Dr. Myint was excellent at communicating what to expect during the recovery period and everything he said is exactly what I experienced. It was reassuring to know that the swelling and day-to-day changes were a normal part of recovery. I am so glad I had the two procedures done together because now I am back to my normal activities and feel I look younger and more vibrant. The results look natural and my friends and family say I look refreshed. The lower eyelid bags and jowls that were the biggest issue for me are gone. It's like the clock has been reversed 10-15 years. I highly recommend Dr. Myint if you are looking for natural looking results. Thank you Dr. Myint!"- C. / RealSelf / Dec 19, 2021
"I had originally gone to another surgeon for a consultation for eyelid surgery. I told him I felt my eyelids made me look tired, old and angry. He gave me a price for my eyelids and quickly left the room. I felt like I was bothering him. My friend had gone to Dr. Myint and was so impressed with him she insisted I meet with him before deciding on a surgeon. When I met with Dr Myint I told him the same thing. I needed eyelid surgery. He said “that’s not what you’re looking for. You’re looking for this”. With that said, he lifted up my eyelid and pulled my forehead back a little. With mirror in hand he said “I think this is what you’re looking for”. YES!! That’s it! That’s exactly what I want!! It’s been a little over a month since my Eyelid and Brow Lift surgery. Although I’m still healing the difference in my appearance is amazing. My husband and friends tell me I look at least 10 years younger. I have more confidence and self-esteem. Dr Myint is amazing. He’s a perfectionist. He checks my healing process every couple weeks. I am so thankful my friend recommended Dr. Myint. If I had gone with that other surgeon, I would not not be happy right now. He would have given me what I asked for and not what I needed."- R.S. / Google / Jul 29, 2021
"I recently had an eye lift and forhead lift with Dr. Myint. I chose him as he had performed an emergency surgery on my daughter as she was bit by a dog near her eye. She fully recovered and we can barely can see her scar. I also chose him because he specializes in not just plastic surgery but your eyes as well. The surgery went great and his entire office was very attentive. I saw him several times during the healing process and he was very patient with me as I expressed various concerns with the healing process. He seemed genuinly interested in my opinions and concerns. He addressed every one. It has been six months and I am super happy. I have seen a couple friends for the first time since Covid and they have commented on my eyes and face. It was money well spent! I highly recommend Dr. Myint!"- L.C. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
Candidates for microneedling
You may benefit from microneedling treatments if you have dermal concerns, like mild skin laxity, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or rough skin texture. Microneedling procedures may also help to reduce the appearance of scars, overly large pores, and stretch marks. You should be willing to wait a while before seeing the results of your microneedling treatment because the collagen and elastin will need time to have an effect on the skin. Over the next few weeks, your skin will grow smoother and healthier.
Our Microneedling Technique
Microneedling is an outpatient treatment that is performed with numbing cream at our office in Las Vegas. NV. Most patients typically feel little to no discomfort during the treatment. First, the target area will be cleaned before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over the skin. After the microneedling is complete, a treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum may be applied to aid in collagen and elastin production. A moisturizer with SPF protection will then be massaged into the skin to safeguard the newly treated tissue.
after your treatment
After your treatment, you may experience mild swelling and redness, but this usually dissipates after a few days. On average, it takes about 1 – 2 months for the collagen and elastin levels to increase until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. We also recommend multiple treatments spaced about one month apart to achieve optimal outcomes and to maintain long-term skin health.
How much does microneedling cost?
In your consultation, Dr. Myint will analyze your skin and then develop your unique plan. From there, he will be able to discuss your costs and the procedure. Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery often has discounts on treatment packages, so be sure to ask about current deals during your appointment.
What exactly is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a nonsurgical treatment to rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps your skin stay supple, smooth, and tight. Over time, your supply of collagen is depleted, and your skin gets less elastic and thin. Microneedling creates tiny wounds in your skin. These micro-injuries cause your skin to increase its collagen production and generate new skin cell growth. Once healed, your complexion looks brighter, firmer, and healthier.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
During the microneedling process, channels are made that help other treatments reach the deeper layers. That's why microneedling is commonly combined with other skin treatments, like special serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Microneedling with PRP is often called a Vampire Facial®. In your consultation, Dr. Myint will talk about what treatments would enhance your microneedling and which would most benefit your skin.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Typically, patients get 3 – 6 microneedling treatments to get optimal results. However, the number of treatments you need will vary based on your goals and the condition of your skin. Microneedling may be performed every 4 – 6 weeks. During your initial consultation, Dr. Myint will be able to estimate how many sessions you might need after assessing your skin and listening to your goals. When you have reached your goal, Dr. Myint recommends getting touch-up treatments two times a year.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
On the whole, microneedling is appropriate for all skin types and tones. Skin injuries created by microneedling are so minor there are rarely side effects afterward. Microneedling can be performed on most areas of skin, including the arms, face, neck, chest, thighs, and calves. Microneedling isn't recommended if you've taken Accutane in the last few months, plus if you have an active skin infection, herpes simplex, or open wound. In addition, you may not be a candidate for microneedling if you are nursing, pregnant, or getting radiation treatments.
