About Microneedling

When home skin treatments aren't giving you the results you desire but you aren't ready for surgery, try nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation such as microneedling, a newer technique that has become very popular among our Las Vegas area patients. Plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in Las Vegas, NV. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that enhance the overall health and appearance of the skin. Schedule a consultation at VIP Plastic Surgery to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin concerns and goals.

Ideal Candidates

You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also improve the appearance of pores, scars, and stretch marks. You need to be willing to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need a month or longer to have an effect on the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and gain healthier, stronger skin.

Procedure Technique

Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if desired, but patients typically experience mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling tool is passed evenly over. The tool used has numerous needles that glide gently over the treatment area, leaving tiny holes that will heal and create new skin growth. After the microneedling is done, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sun protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What to Expect

Following the procedure, you might develop light swelling and redness for about a day, but this should resolve on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best results and long-term skin health.
