A treatment that can treat scars, unwanted pigment, and wrinkles all at the same time? It’s not a miracle, it’s microneedling. There’s no question that our skin changes as we age. But humans are living longer than ever before, and our skin still hasn’t gotten the evolutionary memo.
At Radiant Divine Medical Spa we help our patients renew and revitalize their skin using microneedling in Cleveland. As a type of collagen induction therapy, microneedling benefits the skin in a number of ways, including reducing common signs of aging like wrinkles and skin laxity.
Let’s take an in-depth look at this popular treatment.
Benefits of Microneedling in Cleveland
We use the Virtue RF microneedling system at Radiant Divine. This means all of our microneedling patients get the benefit of radiofrequency energy in their treatments, which enhances the effects of microneedling.
1. Boost Collagen Production
One of the primary benefits of microneedling is that it stimulates collagen production. Collagen is one of your skin’s primary building blocks. It’s responsible for your skin’s texture and volume.
2.Turn Back Time
Microneedling is a go-to treatment if you’re looking for a solution for wrinkles and sagging skin due to age. It restores your skin’s collagen levels to help lift and firm your facial contours.
3.Treat Multiple Conditions
Even if you’re using microneedling for a specific skin concern like scarring, your skin’s overall health will get a revitalizing boost.
4. Make Products Work Better
Right after your microneedling treatment is the best time to apply anti-aging serums, moisturizers, and other topical treatments. Your skin absorbs these products better thanks to the microchannels made during the treatment
5. Fewer Side Effects Than Laser
Compared to laser treatments, microneedling requires less recovery time. Microneedling is also safe and accessible for all skin types and tones.
6. Little to Zero Downtime
Patients who get superficial microneedling treatments hardly need any downtime. Even deeper treatments won’t require you to take time off work for your treatment.
7. Quick Treatments
A microneedling treatment only takes about 30 minutes to complete! Deeper treatments might take about an hour, but that’s still less time than surgery and some laser treatments.

How does microneedling work?
Microneedling in Cleveland is a type of collagen induction therapy that we offer here at Radiant Divine. It’s a treatment specifically designed to increase collagen production in your skin.
Your provider uses a handheld device with thin needles to make tiny holes in your skin. We can adjust the depth of the needles based on your specific skin concerns, like if you have deep acne scarring.
During the treatment, your aesthetician gently rolls the device across the treatment area and the needles create microchannels. This stimulates your body’s natural healing response and kick-starts your skin’s collagen production.
What does collagen do?
Collagen, along with elastin, is the primary component of your skin cells. It’s what gives your skin its shape. As we age, we produce less collagen, which leads to wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging.
With microneedling, we effectively kick-start your body’s collagen production. As your body produces more of it to close the tiny holes from the needles, it tightens your skin. With RF microneedling, the radiofrequency energy boosts this effect even more!
What does microneedling treat?
We can use microneedling to treat a variety of skin conditions all at the same time! Common concerns we treat are:
- Skin laxity
- Sagging skin
- Enlarged pores
- Volume loss
- Lines & wrinkles
All of these conditions can be addressed by restoring your skin’s natural collagen levels with microneedling.
What happens when I book microneedling in Cleveland at Radiant Divine?
At Radiant Divine we start all our patients off with an in-depth consultation with one of our expert providers. During this conversation, we get to know you in order to develop a truly customized treatment plan for your needs.
We’ll examine your skin and ask about your medical history and previous treatments you’ve used, if any. You’ll tell us about your concerns and your goals for treatment. Using all this information, we’ll tailor your microneedling treatment to get on the way to revitalize skin.
During your treatment, you get to sit back and relax in one of our comfortable treatment chairs. Your aesthetician will cleanse and prep your skin with a topical numbing cream and give it time to work.
Then, they will use the handheld microneedling device to perform the treatment. Thanks to the numbing cream, you might feel some pressure, but no pain as they gently roll the needles across your skin.
Afterward, your aesthetician will apply nourishing serums and moisturizer to your skin. If you’re getting PRP added on, it happens at this step. The microchannels created in your skin allow the products to penetrate more deeply, making them more effective.
Your skin may be pink or feel like it has a slight sunburn right after your microneedling treatment in Cleveland. This usually goes away in about 24 hours.
There’s no required downtime after your microneedling treatment. You’re free to go back to your normal routine! We recommend using only a gentle cleanser and moisturizer for the first few days after your treatment.
You’ll start to notice your results in just 1 week after your treatment.
The results from microneedling are cumulative, which means they continue to improve over time. Most patients require a series of treatments and experience their optimal results about 4 to 6 weeks after completing their last treatment.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Microneedling Treatment
Everyone’s experience with microneedling is different. Your aesthetician can make personalized recommendations on your treatment plan to help you maximize your microneedling benefits.
These are some general guidelines:
Follow Your Treatment Plan
For most patients, we tend to recommend a series of 1 to 3 microneedling treatments to see the best results. We space these treatments out in 4- to 6-week intervals to give your skin time to heal after the previous treatment.
Following your recommended treatment plan helps make sure you have the best experience and see optimal results from your microneedling treatments.
Prioritize Your Skincare
During your consultation, your aesthetician can recommend specific products that will be the best match for your skin.
Become a Vampire (Or Just Avoid the Sun)
We love fun in the sun as much as the next person, but the sun is not your best friend while your skin is healing after microneedling in Cleveland. You should reach for your SPF every time you go outside during the 2 weeks after your treatment.
This is also a good time to remind you that sunscreen is the most important part of your skincare routine.
Combine With Other Aesthetic Treatments
You can enhance and sustain your microneedling results by incorporating it into a regular aesthetics care plan. Microneedling combines well with regular medical-grade facials, Botox and filler, and even laser treatments when you schedule them correctly.
Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling
Does microneedling hurt?
Microneedling is not considered a painful procedure. We use a topical numbing ointment to prep your skin before we start! You may feel some light pressure, but there shouldn’t be any pain.
When will I see the results?
Some patients notice changes in their skin within just 1 week! However, in general, the results from microneedling take about 4 to 6 weeks to fully appear. This is because your skin takes time to produce new collagen and heal.
How long do results last?
The results from microneedling can last for several months and longer if you opt for maintenance treatments. We also can recommend skincare products to help you maintain and enhance your results.
