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.

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.
