About Microneedling

Have you treated your skin to a rejuvenation treatment lately or tried something new to improve the quality of your skin? Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Reuel Aspacio and his team of talented, certified medical aestheticians now offer microneedling sessions at Summerlin Dermatology. Microneedling is the use of tiny needles to create holes on the skin. With the healing process, new collagen and elastin are formed to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks.

In addition, you can add serums to your microneedling appointment that will be able to penetrate deeper into the skin, thus improving your skin faster. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, microneedling may be just what the doctor ordered. The micro-injuries by the cordless Eclipse MicroPen trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the health and appearance of the skin. If you’re in the Las Vegas area and desire to improve scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks, microneedling may be a great treatment option for you. Give us a call at Summerlin Dermatology and schedule an appointment today.

Ideal Candidates

You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the appearance of pores, stretch marks, and scars. You should be willing to wait a while before seeing the results of your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need time to have an effect on the skin, but you will have natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.

Procedure Technique

Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if requested, but most patients feel mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over it. After the microneedling is performed, 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 sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What to Expect

You may have some swelling and redness for about a day, but this should subside quickly 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 skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results and lasting skin health.
