Microneedling treatments are a popular approach to improve your skin health and rejuvenate an area. For many, microneedling has become the go-to treatment for glowing, healthy, and youthful skin. If you are interested in improving your appearance through this collagen-boosting treatment, we appreciate that cost can be a source of worry. You will find here everything you need to know about the process and how to budget for it.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling enhances skin health by causing micro-injuries to the skin surface. The process consists of the insertion of micro-fine needles into the skin to stimulate the healing process. As a result, it acts as a collagen induction therapy that stimulates collagen production for skin repair. Microneedling can lead to a significant increase in collagen and skin elasticity in the six months that follow the completion of your treatment. However, if you wish to achieve best results, you will need to book more than one session.
Once you’ve achieved your desired outcome, it’s essential to maintain your skin health to ensure long-lasting results. Most clients typically require annual maintenance appointments.
Types of Microneedling Available
There are two types of microneedling treatments, depending on your needs and the area you wish to cover.
Traditional microneedling involves a professional dermaroller. If you own a home roller, you are already familiar with the device. However, dermatologists use a device that can puncture the skin for maximum rejuvenation and collagen induction therapy, which you can’t achieve at home. You can use a traditional microneedling in-office treatment, for instance, for small wrinkles or to achieve glowing and luminous skin.
Radiofrequency microneedling with the Infini RF patented technology adds thermal energy to microneedle punctures. You would choose radiofrequency microneedling treatments to treat acne scars or sun damage, for instance. This advanced form of microneedling can maximize results!
The costs of microneedling vary depending on a variety of factors. The size of the area you wish to treat as well as the treatment procedure you choose will affect the cost of each session. You can expect to pay between $350 and $750 per appointment, but cost will ultimately depend on the areas that need to be treated and the device used.
Our dermatologist team at Capital Laser & Skin Care can help you understand what to expect in terms of cost and treatment duration.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling will make your skin look plump and luminous reasonably immediately. While there is some redness that will last a couple of days, results appear rapidly and develop over time as the collagen production increases.
If you are worried about intrusive or lengthy procedures, microneedling provides a quick, non-invasive, and effective approach to enhancing your skin health with minimal recovery time required.
Am I a Candidate for Microneedling Treatment?
Like with any skin procedures, there are several factors to consider. Microneedling is a safe and convenient procedure but it can be a risky treatment for:
- Pregnant women
- Specific skin disease such as psoriasis
- Open wounds
- People with a history of keloid scarring
- People who have had radiation therapy recently
