What is 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, NV area patients. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office at VIP Plastic Surgery. 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.
Can I have microneedling?
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.
"I had micro needling done by Melanie for stretch mark removal! She is very sweet and caring, I have noticed a significant reduction in the appearance of stretch marks as well! Still have another treatment to go I definitely recommend this place."- A.O. / Google / Mar 19, 2017
"I have been going to VIP Plastic Surgery now for about four years. At first I just started getting my lips filled with Juvéderm and I loved the outcome. They looked so natural and I was so happy! Dr. Khorsandi is such a pleasure to be around and he is such an amazing doctor I would never go anywhere else. Not only do I feel welcome every time I go in but they take such good care of me. I am now 31 and have started to see a slight change in my face and some minor cellulite. So I decided to go see Melanie who is one of the aestheticians there. I had some concerns about some cellulite under my butt area on my thighs. I went in and had a consultation with her about the Body FX. She told me it was a non-invasive procedure and it pretty much just melted your fat and made your skin tighter and more firm. So I decided to try the procedure out. Not only did I love the procedure but Melanie was such a professional and did such a wonderful job that I started asking about the different kind of facials and non invasive treatments they had for my under eye and face. After having a consultation with both Melanie and Dr. Khorsandi we agreed that the Morpheus which is a micro needling procedure for my under eye would help tighten and smooth my under eyes so I wouldn't have to get fillers. I agreed to the three treatments. The package was a good deal (in my eyes to be honest) other places charge way more. The treatment hurt like hell but I was very pleased with the aftermath. After doing the Morpheus Micro Needling I decided to do a vampire facial, which I literally got today LOL I heard such good things about it and they offer such great packages that I decided what the hell. It didn't hurt half as bad as The Morpheus, so I was totally happy about that and I can't wait to see the results. Every time I have appointment with Melanie I look forward to seeing her. She does such a wonderful job at everything she does for me and I wouldn't dream about seeing anyone else. Not only do I look at her as my talented aesthetician that makes me feel beautiful, but as a friend that I can laugh and feel comfortable with. It's such a crazy feeling to see yourself aging and to start noticing things that you don't really like or that you want to change about your body and VIP Plastic Surgery has not only made me feel so comfortable about going in and talking about my issues but they do such a great job with every procedure I've had done that not only will I go there for everything in the future but I feel like family when I'm there. Thank you Dr. Khorsandi and Melanie for always making me feel so special and beautiful"- V.M. / Yelp / Oct 17, 2019
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
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.
After Your session
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.
