Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a popular minimally invasive procedure that causes your skin to grow more collagen for self-repair. 

During a microneedling treatment at SculptMD, your provider uses a handpiece with many fine, short needles to make tiny holes in your skin’s surface. Your body sees these pinpricks as injuries that need repair and the healing process begins.

At SculptMD, the team uses a radiofrequency microneedling device by Cutera® for an even more drastic effect. While the needles cause some new collagen to develop, the radiofrequency energy from the device warms your deep tissues and causes even more collagen and elastin fibers to grow. 

Collagen is a structural protein that makes your skin firm, and elastin is a similar protein that keeps it tight. 

You might need multiple microneedling sessions to see optimal results. The team at SculptMD generally recommends three initial sessions and maintenance sessions once a year to keep your skin looking its best. 

What does microneedling feel like?

The needles on the microneedling device are very tiny and don’t cause as much discomfort as you might expect. If needed, your provider can offer you numbing cream beforehand to keep you as comfortable as possible during your microneedling procedure. 

With Cutera microneedling, you’ll feel warmth as the needles deliver gentle radiofrequency energy deep into your tissues. The controlled temperatures from the device don’t overheat your skin. 

What are the results of microneedling?

Microneedling treatments can strongly enhance your skin to make it look smoother, tighter, and more youthful. You’ll see an improvement in specific skin features and flaws that develop over time with age and sun damage. 

A few features that you can target with radiofrequency microneedling are:

  • Age and sun spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Other small scars
  • Large pores
  • Fine lines
  • Stretchmarks

After your treatment, you’ll notice that your skin has a healthy, renewed glow. Any redness or flushing dissipates after just a few days, but you won’t need any downtime. You should protect your skin from the sun to maintain your results and to avoid any more irritation.
