What is Microneedling?
If over-the-counter skin treatments aren't effective, but you don't want surgery, learn more about minimally invasive procedures for skin rejuvenation like microneedling. At RareV, our aesthetic team is happy to perform microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at our office in Las Vegas, NV. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that increase the appearance and health of your skin. Easily combined with other skin treatments, like serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce pores, stretch marks, and scars. Make an appointment for a consultation at RareV to hear more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling can be used to improve the appearance of several skin concerns when over-the-counter treatments and at-home remedies are not effective.

Microneedling can: Soften fine lines and wrinkles Minimize scars (including acne scars) Reduce enlarged pores Brighten dull skin Even skin texture Fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation Improve skin health overall
Who is an ideal candidate for microneedling?
It's possible you could benefit from microneedling treatments if you have light to mild skin problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Collagen induction therapy procedures can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You should be willing to wait before seeing improvements from your microneedling procedure since the collagen and elastin will need time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.
How does microneedling work?
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is performed in a private treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if preferred; however, patients generally feel little or no discomfort. The skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or serum with a vitamin infusion can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sun protection because the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.
What can I expect after Microneedling?
After your treatment, you might develop some swelling and redness for about a day; however, this should subside on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin supply increases until you notice visible changes in the health and appearance of your complexion. You should plan to get around 4 – 6 maintenance sessions every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-term skin health.
