Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical skin treatment that uses tiny, sterile treatment needles to prompt new collagen production. The procedure is also called collagen induction therapy. 

One of the benefits of microneedling is the opportunity to improve the appearance of multiple skin concerns with the same treatment. Microneedling can address:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Irregularities in texture or tone

Microneedling can not only improve the appearance of your facial skin; you can also have it on your neck, chest, and anywhere you have stretch marks. 

Is microneedling painful?

A special numbing cream is applied prior to your session. This lessens sensations in the treatment area to help you remain comfortable from start to finish. 

You might feel a slight burning or stinging sensation during treatments, and a degree of soreness and heightened sensitivity is normal for a few days after your sessions. Over-the-counter pain medication is all that’s needed to address lingering discomfort. 

What types of microneedling are available?

Dr. Moradzadeh believes in bringing the very best technology to his practice and spends a great deal of time and effort researching which treatment platforms offer the best results. 

You have access to a range of services, as well as the professional guidance needed to make the selection that’s right for you. 

Secret™ RF

This system incorporates fractional radiofrequency into the microneedling process to boost results. Radiofrequency energy helps stimulate collagen production, and also delivers a coagulation effect that instantly tightens your skin. 


The Morpheus8 microneedling system uses fractional radiofrequency energy and bipolar radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into your skin. Treatments tighten skin on your face or body and prompt new collagen development without the need for invasive surgical procedures. 


Profound is another microneedling platform that uses radiofrequency energy to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles as well as cellulite on your body. Real-time temperature control technology keeps the surface of your skin comfortable from start to finish. 


This system uses radiofrequency energy to enhance microneedling. It’s an excellent treatment for acne and resurfaces your skin with a combination of ablation and fractional coagulation. 

Dr. Moradzadeh also offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments with microneedling. This approach uses a concentrated sample of your blood to reduce inflammation and hasten collagen production. 

Don’t let the sheer volume of options intimidate you. Dr. Moradzadeh helps you decide which treatments are best suited for your specific needs.
