Things To Know About Micro Needling Treatment


If you think you could benefit from facial rejuvenation but are not quite ready to commit to a facelift, micro needling may be able to help.  At Advanced Aesthetics Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, you will be able to achieve your ideal aesthetic without pain or downtime.

Maybe this is your first time to hear about microneedling and are wondering exactly what it is. Also known as collagen induction therapy, micro needling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that promotes the natural collagen production as well as the cellular turnover of the body   through its wound-healing processes.  During this procedure, an FDA-approved handheld device called a SkinPen is rolled over the treatment area in a smooth circular motion.

The SkinPen has a number of tiny needles that puncture the skin rapidly to create microscopic channels within the skin. Even though this may sound intimidating,   you should not be scared because the needles are so fine that you will not feel any pain during the procedure. But just in case you have an aversion to needles, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area so that you will not feel anything at all during the treatment.

You may also want to know how long micro needling takes before giving it a try.  The entire treatment takes only about half an hour.  However, the time that the treatment takes to complete may vary  on a case by case basis.   For instance, if you are treating a smaller area, you can expect the treatment time to be shorter compared to treating a larger area.  During your initial consultation, your current health condition as well as aesthetic goals will be assessed so that you can have a better idea of how long the treatment will take.
