Las Vegas Microneedling

Write off sun damage, stretch marks, fine lines and more with the Dermapen®

Beautiful skin doesn’t have to mean going “under the laser.” Microneedling harnesses your body’s natural healing process to reduce fine lines, reduce sun damage, minimize scars and get smoother, more radiant skin, without heat, harsh chemicals, or abrasion.

  • Improved Skin Texture and Tone: Microneedling stimulates skin regeneration, leading to smoother, more even-toned skin.
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The procedure can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, contributing to a more youthful look.
  • Minimized Pore Size: Microneedling can help reduce the size of enlarged pores, often a concern for those with oily or acne-prone skin.
  • Scar Reduction: This treatment is effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scarring on the skin.
  • Enhanced Skin Elasticity: By stimulating collagen production, microneedling can improve skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Reduced Hyperpigmentation and Sun Damage: The procedure can help in evening out skin tone, reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sunspots.
  • Better Product Absorption: Microneedling enhances the absorption and efficacy of topical skincare products by allowing deeper penetration into the skin.
  • Minimally Invasive with Minimal Downtime: Compared to more invasive treatments, dermapen microneedling has minimal downtime, allowing for a quick return to daily activities.
  • Safe for Most Skin Types: Microneedling is generally safe for all skin types and tones, with a lower risk of hyperpigmentation compared to some other resurfacing techniques.
  • Alternative to More Aggressive Treatments: For those seeking less invasive options than laser treatments or chemical peels, microneedling offers a gentler alternative with notable results.
  • Collagen: A protein in the skin that provides structure and strength. Microneedling stimulates collagen production, helping to rejuvenate and firm the skin.
  • Collagen Induction Therapy: Another term for microneedling, referring to the process of stimulating collagen production in the skin through controlled micro-injuries.
  • Dermapen: A brand-specific, handheld device used in microneedling procedures, featuring a series of fine, sterile needles to create micro-injuries in the skin.
  • Epidermis: The outer layer of the skin, which is affected during the microneedling process to stimulate regeneration and rejuvenation.
  • Healing Response: The body’s natural process of repairing tissue damage. Microneedling triggers this response, leading to skin rejuvenation and improvement in skin texture.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: A substance naturally found in the skin, often used in conjunction with microneedling treatments to enhance skin hydration and rejuvenation.
  • Micro-Injuries: Tiny punctures made in the skin by the Dermapen during microneedling, which stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and collagen production.
  • Microneedling: A minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, aiming to improve skin texture and appearance.
  • Non-Surgical: Referring to treatments that do not involve surgery or invasive procedures. Microneedling is a non-surgical method for skin rejuvenation.
  • Post-Treatment Care: The skincare and precautions advised after a microneedling session to ensure proper healing and maximize benefits.
  • Serums: Specialized skincare products used in conjunction with microneedling to deliver active ingredients directly into the skin for enhanced effects.
  • Skin Rejuvenation: The process of making the skin look and feel more youthful, which is one of the primary goals of microneedling treatments.
  • Skin Type: Refers to the classification of skin based on its characteristics and behavior, such as oily, dry, or sensitive. Skin type can affect the response to microneedling treatments.
  • Stretch Marks: Lines or streaks on the skin, often caused by rapid stretching. Microneedling can be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by promoting collagen production and skin healing.
  • Topical Anesthetic: A numbing cream applied to the skin before microneedling to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses dozens of microscopic needles to make tiny, invisible openings in the skin. Your body interprets these openings as “injuries,” and sets the natural skin healing process in motion. In the weeks following a microneedling treatment, your skin will produce new collagen and elastin, and replace damaged skin cells with fresh, healthy and unblemished skin cells.

Benefits of microneedling

Microneedling treatments can offer numerous benefits for your skin’s health and appearance:

  • Achieves more even skin tone and texture
  • Clears blemishes and improves congested skin
  • Smoothes fine lines and lessens the severity of deeper wrinkles
  • Excellent for minimizing stretch marks, acne scarring, visible pores, and other issues that are difficult to treat with other skin resurfacing methods
  • Safe for all skin types, even darker skin, and can be used on the face, hands or body

Why we use the Dermapen at Cosmetic Surgery of Las Vegas

There are many microneedling devices on the market, but we trust the precision, built-in safety controls, and predictable results of the Dermapen.

The Dermapen was specifically designed to reduce the risk of dragging or “catching” the skin, so you will not experience the risks or side effects associated with older devices. In addition, the Dermapen’s patented tip technology is highly customizable to allow the device to reach the precise skin layers desired for optimal collagen production and cell regrowth.

What to expect with your microneedling treatment

Microneedling is an in-office procedure, performed in one of our comfortable treatment rooms at Cosmetic Surgery of Las Vegas. During your treatment, we will gently and precisely move the pen-like device across the skin in the treatment area. Depending on your individual needs and goals, we offer the option for topical applications of serums to the treatment area, so that they may absorb into the skin for maximum effect.

Discomfort during microneedling is minimal for most patients; you may feel a stinging sensation as the Dermapen glides across the skin. Most patients resume normal activity immediately after treatment, though you may experience very slight redness, swelling or sensitivity in the area for the first day or two, depending on the level and aggressiveness of the treatment sought.

You should notice an improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance about 4 to 6 weeks after treatment, and results continue to improve as your skin produces new collagen. Most patients choose to have 3 to 6 treatments, depending on their skin condition and desired results.
