Different Types of Microneedling
Microneedling costs can be influenced by the type of treatment you seek out.
That’s right: Not all microneedling treatments are the same; in fact, many treatments use different formulas to help you achieve specific goals. Here at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we’re pleased to offer these different types of microneedling procedures:
- Traditional microneedling, which just uses the device to trigger excess collagen production.
- Scarlet RF Microneedling, which combines the power of microneedling technology with radiofrequency energy to tighten and firm up the appearance of targeted skin.
- Microneedling with PRP, which uses your body’s own platelet-rich plasma to trigger excess collagen production while activating crucial growth factors for younger-looking skin.
Is Microneedling Covered By Insurance?
While microneedling can have a profound influence on your emotional and mental health (particularly if it treats something that has always bothered you), it’s still considered an aesthetic treatment by health insurance companies. Therefore, your provider is not likely to cover the costs of your microneedling procedure.
If you’re concerned about paying for your microneedling treatment, ask your provider if he or she has a payment plan or other affordable financing options available.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Again, the number of microneedling treatments you may need largely depends on a few factors, including:
- The complexion issue you’re looking to treat
- The surface area that’s being treated
- How well your skin responds to microneedling treatments
The overall cost of your microneedling procedure will be influenced by how many treatments you undergo. That’s why it’s important to get a good idea of how many sessions you’ll need to see your best results.
On average, most patients need about three to six treatments to see their best results.
We encourage you to ask as many questions as possible to get a better idea of how many microneedling treatments your particular skin issue may require. Your consultation represents a great time to do this, as you can get recommendations – as well as price points – for your microneedling procedure.
