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.
"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
"After retiring to Las Vegas in 2010, I consulted several LV doctors to find a plastic surgeon for upper eyelid surgery. All three doctors recommended Dr. Myint for the reason that he is only one of several Oculo Facial Plastic Surgeons world-wide and is the top in his field. I then googled him and was very impressed with his credentials. I went with him and since then have had several other procedures done by Dr. Myint. In all cases, I was extremely pleased with the results. He is an amazing and wonderful doctor, and I can attest that he lives up to everything stated on his website. The words: beloved, trust, passionate, cautious, and caring accurately describe Dr. Myint. I think the world of him and his staff Alexzandra and Brittney, and highly recommend Dr. Myint to anyone seeking to improve their appearance."- J.M / Office Visit / Feb 16, 2023

"I had a consultation with Dr. Myint this morning. He is an oculo facial plastic surgeon. His office is located in Nevada Eye Physicians, an ophthalmology practice -- which is indeed one of Dr. Myint's expertise areas with respect to plastic surgery. The glass door entering into the suite's waiting room clearly has his name displayed. I checked in with the receptionist. Minutes later I was greeted by one of Dr. Myint's assistants and escorted into one of the practice's exam rooms--similar to any other medical practice exam room.I was clearly impressed with Dr. Myint's knowledge, his detailed explanations, and his overall patient demeanor in terms of listening/answering questions. His staff is friendly and definitely service oriented. My experience rated 5's in all aspects that are important to me. Office aesthetics is not one of those.Dr. Myint won my trust by his knowledge and "bedside manner." His support staff is first class as well. "- K.M. / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2022

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.

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.
