Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin-rejuvenating treatment used to tighten and resurface the skin, even skin tone, to diminish signs of aging. This aesthetic treatment helps restore and repair skin damaged by age, scarring, or the sun by using tiny needles that create micro-injuries to the deep layers of the skin. 

Microneedling stimulates new production of collagen and elastin, the cells responsible for keeping skin firm and supple. The treatment works with your immune system to naturally improve the skin's quality and tone as your body responds to the controlled damage.

The Evolve Healthcare team uses the InMode Morpheus8® radiofrequency (RF) microneedling system for the highest quality skin remodeling, skin resurfacing, and skin tightening. 

What are the benefits of Morpheus8 microneedling?

Some of the benefits of Morpheus8 treatment includes:


  • Minimally invasive
  • Minimal downtime of about 1-3 days
  • Little or no discomfort
  • No anesthesia or sedation needed
  • Treatment times of just 25-60 minutes
  • Uniform results
  • No thermal damage
  • Safe for all skin tones 
  • Low risk for post-procedure discoloration


Your microneedling results continue to improve over 2-3 weeks, creating natural-looking changes over time as your skin heals and new tissue develops. 

How does the Morpheus8 microneedling treatment work?

Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency technology to enhance the effects of the microneedling process. The specially designed device utilizes powerful, but gentle RF-generated heat to penetrate deep into the layers of skin and stimulate new tissue growth.

Morpheus8 can help improve your skin by:


  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firming and tightening skin
  • Freshening and brightening skin
  • Diminishing appearance of acne scars
  • Improving the appearance of stretch marks
  • Improving skin tone, texture, and color
  • Lightening under-eye circles
  • Reduces signs of sun damage
  • Shrink enlarged pores
  • Firms jowls and neck skin


Microneedling is most effective when combined with other aesthetic treatments.

What treatments can enhance my microneedling treatment?

Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Marina Shlifer may recommend enhancing your microneedling or results by adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. PRP is a natural element of your blood, which the Evolve Healthcare team prepares from your blood.

With the PRP Microneedling Facial, Dr. Shlifer injects PRP into your treatment area, further stimulating new collagen production and speeds healing. Evolve Healthcare also offers the PRP Microdermabrasion Vampire Facial, which uses specialized skin care products and PRP serum to get impressive anti-aging results.
