What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy or CID, is a treatment that uses a pen-like device with a disposable, sterile tip of tiny needles to create very small, controlled wounds at different depths. This triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates the production of collagen, offering natural, noticeable changes in the skin’s firmness and tone.

In addition to delivering the similar outcomes as other procedures (like lasers) with minimal downtime and side effects, SkinPen microneedling is an affordable treatment that works for Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV, and has been clinically shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and skin discoloration.

Why SkinPen?

Not all microneedling devices are created equal. While you may be tempted to try at-home derma pens or derma rollers, the fact is that you will not see the same results as you would after undergoing microneedling with a trained professional. At-home microneedling treatments don’t penetrate deep enough into the skin, and for good reason: deeper treatments are unsafe to attempt on your own.

At Evolve Medical Associates, we use SkinPen for our microneedling treatments. SkinPen was the first microneedling device to be approved by the FDA, and sets the industry standard for safety. SkinPen has been proven as an effective treatment when performed by a medical professional, like our experts at Evolve.

I’m very impressed with Dr. Sudy and his team. I’ve had some bad experiences with other Wilmington doctors but Dr. Sudy is amazing! I was extremely impressed by his results, even after telling him this he insisted that I come in for a follow up to ensure that his work was perfect. He made a slight adjustment on our follow up for something I hadn’t even noticed. I will definitely be returning and will be encouraging my family and friends to make the switch to him and his team.

I don’t typically give reviews but can’t say enough good things about Dr Sudi and his staff. I’ve seen him a handful of times for fillers and Botox and I’m always more than pleased. He takes his time and listens to my concerns and always gives a natural and improved look. I’ve been to 3 other well known practices before him and he is definitely the best.

I have been using this medspa for more than a dozen years and I've never experienced anything but wonderful service from Dr. Sudy and his front desk staff. Today I had a relatively new employee inject my neurotoxin (Benjamin Epstein) and he was careful and thorough. I would gladly use him again.

After doing research on coolsculpting and med spas, I found Evolve medical Associates. I scheduled a consultation with ease. The whole staff is awesome and very helpful. We scheduled the procedures and Isabella, who does the coolsculpting is so much fun, very straightforward about everything so there were no surprises. She made the experience very pleasant and I enjoyed coming in just to talk to her. It’s been a few months since the procedures and I was able to wear a bikini at the pool/beach with confidence for the first time since I’ve had my children. I even feel more confident in my clothes and I’m so thankful for her skills and her attention to detail.

Evolve is Amazing! Professional, the absolute best. And sooo fun! I have been to a couple of other medical spas for some work and this was by far my favorite and most enjoyable experience. Isabella is an artist! She is thorough, and has exquisite attention to detail. I walked out feeling like my best self. Can’t wait to come back.

Isabella is absolutely amazing! I got coolsculpting with her and the results are incredible. She knew exactly what she was doing and I am so happy i chose to do my treatment with her! She goes above and beyond for her patients. I couldn’t go during the day because of work and she stayed after hours for me plus gave me her number to answer all my questions!! If you are looking to do coolsculpting you must go to Isabella - trust me!

Cool sculpting treatment was as comfortable as it possibly could have been. Everything was explained very clearly, including how to prepare for it. Isabella Ayescue is excellent at what she does. Very effective after my first treatment so came back for another.

Evolve Medical is great! I’m lucky to have found this gem when I moved. Staff are always welcoming, fun and professional. Shout out to Dr. Sudy for great lip enhancement and wrinkle relaxer work! Isabella’s BBLs are always on point. Her BBL forever young always turns out fabulous. Sun damage spots removed and face has a glow that people actually stop me to comment on. Thank you Evolve team!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Microneedling Right for Me?

Microneedling isn’t right for everyone. When you come to Evolve for your consultation, we’ll sit down with you and discuss your skin care concerns and decide which one of our aesthetic services is right for your goals. Since SkinPen is less abrasive than harsh chemical peels and many types of laser therapy for skin rejuvenation, microneedling may be a great alternative for those with sensitive skin.

If we decide SkinPen microneedling is right for you, we’ll craft a personalized treatment plan just for you. Depending on the thickness of your skin, the concerns you are looking to treat, and the area to be treated, the length of the SkinPen needles can be adjusted to fit your needs. For example, for deep acne scarring, a longer needle is needed to make the treatment effective.

Does Microneedling Hurt?

Microneedling does not tend to be painful, although topical numbing cream can be used to minimize discomfort. Some patients have compared the sensation to the feeling of getting a tattoo.

Are There Side Effects or Downtime to Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that typically requires no downtime. However, most patients experience mild redness directly after the procedure, similar to moderate sunburn, but this will fade within a few days.

How Many Microneedling Sessions Do I Need?

The number of microneedling sessions you’ll need will depend on your individual case and the skin concerns you are looking to treat. When you come to us for your consultation, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of how many sessions it will take to address your specific needs.

When Will I See Results from Microneedling?

It’s common to see results from microneedling within the first week of your procedure, although your skin will continue to improve in the weeks and months following.

Can I Combine Microneedling with Other Procedures?

Absolutely! Depending on your unique needs, we may recommend other treatments, like laser skin resurfacing or HydraFacial, to give you your best microneedling results. Microneedling on its own can be done year-round, even during the summer, unlike many other skin rejuvenation procedures that require you to stay out of the sun for a longer time after treatment.
