Fall and winter are the best times of year to get skin treatments in Las Vegas, Nevada. During this time we are not exposed to the high intensity of the sun so there is a decreased risk of post procedure hyperpigmentation – although you should still wear your sunblock.
Now is the time to get off all that old, dry, and hyperpigmented skin you built up over summer and unveil a fresh, younger face for the new year. Microneedling is one of the best ways to do that and it is one our favorite anti-aging procedures. It has little to no down time, produces good results, and is affordable.
By stimulating cell turnover and new collagen growth, microneedling improves skin tone and texture, removes fine wrinkles and crepiness, and makes the skin firmer. It can improve the appearance of large pores and can be used to soften and improve scars and stretchmarks. It is also a great treatment for acne scars. Microneedling can be used in hard to treat areas like under the eyes and around the lips, can be used on any part of the body, and is a procedure that can be used on all skin types.
For serious skin rejuvenation, additional treatments can be used in conjunction with microneedling. This is a great option for those with severely damaged or aged skin. Microneedling can also be used on the scalp to help stimulate hair growth.
At Zenestar we use a state-of-the-art medical grade high speed micro-needling system. Our microneedling tools have a cluster of small needles that can be adjusted to various depths and speeds depending on the area treated. These needles make punctures through the top layer of skin called the dermis. This microtrauma stimulates the body to repair itself and grow new elastin and collagen rich skin. To optimize the results, we put topical mesotherapy products on the skin before and after the treatment. The products penetrate deeply into the channels created by the needles. Some of the solutions we use include hyaluronic acid for hydration and as a building block for collagen, vitamins and antioxdants such as b-vitamins, vitamin c, and glutathione. We have solutions for acne, anti-aging, hair growth, and more.
There is minimal downtime with microneedling. The first day or two you may feel like you have a slight sunburn and your skin will be pink. You may also feel a mild tightness or dryness. Some people get a light flaking as the dead skin sloughs off. In areas that are treated more aggressively, you may have small marks that look like dots. We recommend not putting makeup on the first day. The second day you can use your non-acidic skin care products and makeup. We will give you detailed care instructions at the time of your visit.
The treatment takes about one hour. Thirty (30) minutes prior to the treatment we apply a topical numbing cream, making the treatment comfortable. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes. We then apply a calming and relaxing peptide mask for about 15-20 minutes post procedure. The number of treatments needed will depend on the condition of your skin and goals you have. The average is 3-6 treatments in the course of a year. Treatments can be done monthly. With every treatment you will see improvement. Some people see improvement as early as 1 month but the average time it takes for collagen restructuring is 6-8 weeks.
