Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that uses a device with numerous small needles that perforate the skin to a carefully controlled depth. 

The needles deliberately induce injuries to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, which are structural proteins that keep your skin strong, tight, and youthful.

The aesthetics experts at Evolve Aesthetics use the Rejuvapen NXT® to perform microneedling.  

What does microneedling treat?

Evolve Aesthetics uses microneedling to treat many common skin concerns. Your provider may recommend the cosmetic treatment to address:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged or hyperpigmented skin
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks

In addition to treating specific beauty concerns, microneedling also improves the general tone, texture, and color of your skin to revitalize your look. 

What are my microneedling treatment options?

Evolve Aesthetics may recommend microneedling by itself or combined with other beauty treatments. Your microneedling treatment options include:

Microneedling with hyaluronic acid

To improve hydration, the team at Evolve Aesthetics may combine your microneedling with a hyaluronic acid infusion. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in your body that holds onto water and helps keep your skin hydrated. 

Microneedling with growth factors

To accelerate the production of collagen and elastin, the team at Evolve Aesthetics may suggest combining your microneedling with their special growth factor serum.

This special microneedling treatment may provide an even more dramatic improvement in your look. 

Microneedling with PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a form of regenerative medicine derived from a sample of your blood. 

The special serum contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and specialized proteins, which activate superior levels of collagen and elastin production when combined with microneedling. 

Is microneedling painful?

To ease discomfort during your treatment, your aesthetic provider applies a numbing agent to your skin before using the special microneedling device.

You may experience some redness following treatments, but there’s no need for downtime after microneedling.

Though you may notice an improvement in your skin soon after your first session, the team at Evolve Aesthetics may suggest a series of 3-6 treatments set at four-week intervals to achieve the best results.
