Microneedling is an increasingly popular treatment for facial rejuvenation that utilizes the body’s natural restoration systems to achieve smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin that can last for several months. Dermatology and Plastic Surgery of Arizona proudly offers several types of microneedling treatments, including microneedling with PRP, to provide you with the best value for money.

Types of Microneedling

All microneedling services are based on the fundamental concept of using a number of needles to make multiple controlled small pricks in the skin, initiating the body’s ability to heal itself through increased collagen and elastin production. The treatment can be completed in several distinct methods, with the most popular being;

  • Home procedures using a derma roller, which offer a cheaper solution but significantly reduced results. High risk for infection 
  • Microneedling with topical serums to boost the anti-aging mechanisms in the fight against wrinkles.
  • Microneedling with extra radiofrequency, which treats scarring by using electromagnetic waves.
  • PRP (platelet-rich plasma) microneedling that uses the PRP injections to stimulate skin tissues.

Our team of professional dermatologists can discuss the benefits of each option, along with further information regarding the microneedling MicroPen, downtimes, and aftercare requirements.

Microneedling Costs

The cost of professional microneedling can vary greatly from one person to the next, and your estimates can range from $250-525. However, when you consider that microneedling is often completed over several sessions, you’ll need to take this into account.

Microneedling with PRP, for example, will cost around $250-500 per session, which works out more expensive than standard treatments with topical serums but significantly more affordable than radiofrequency procedures. The fact that fewer sessions are needed will make the overall treatment cost far more affordable than many of the alternatives, including those that seem to be budget-friendly but actually require 3 or more sessions.

The style of microneedling treatment isn’t the only issue that will impact the overall cost. Due to its nature of being a skin rejuvenation treatment, the body part selection is unlikely to have much of an impact. Nonetheless, the overall surface area will have a telling influence on the procedure duration, which will be reflected by the price. Meanwhile, the severity of the imperfections is another crucial factor.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling? 

If you are looking for a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with long-lasting effects and minimal downtime, microneedling is ideal. The benefits are seen after just a few days while side effects are largely restricted to a little redness and swelling. Microneedling may be used to treat individuals who experience an array of skin-related issues. The procedure is most commonly used to overcome;

  • Acne scars, 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles, 
  • Hyperpigmentation, 
  • Large pores, 
  • Sun damage, 
  • Surgical scars, 
  • Stretch marks,
  • Uneven skin texture.

The ability to reduce the visibility of scarring, reverse sun damage, and generally gain younger-looking skin is something that will appeal to men and women alike. While the treatment should always be personalized to your needs, our team has found that the best value for money is often found in microneedling with PRP.
