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, 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.

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 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.

Microneedling FAQ

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. 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.
