About Microneedling

When home skin treatments aren't effective but you are not ready for surgery,  off-label nonsurgical procedures such as microneedling may be extraordinarily effective for skin rejuvenation. Dr. Garry Lee is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in the Las Vegas, NV area. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries are thought ot trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that increase the overall health and appearance of the skin, though formal FDA Approval for this indication is still pending. Schedule a consultation at Look Younger MD 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 stretch marks, scars, and pores. 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 laughing gas if desired, but patients typically experience mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling hand piece is passed evenly over the skin. After the microneedling treatment 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, though PRP if currently only FDA Approved for healing in orthopedic surgery.  You will be advised against applying anything to the skin for at least 4 hours following 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.
