Microneedling is a type of procedure that opens up your skin and makes moisturizing more effective. To some this procedure sounds great, after all who wouldn’t want their skincare routines to become incredibly effective?

Some more trepidatious people, however, probably find themselves worrying about the affordability of microneedling. 

How Do I Know If Microneedling Is For Me?

This treatment is typically used for skin concerns linked to a loss of collagen. This includes acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, sunspots, and uneven texture.

Microneedling may also be used in other areas of the body to treat depressed (flat) scars, uneven texture, and general loss of elasticity in the skin. It can also be used as a preventative measure for skin blemishes. Just remember that the larger the treatment area, the higher the cost.

How Much Does Microneedling Cost?

According to RealSelf.com, the average cost of microneedling is $650, although microneedling can cost anywhere from $200 to $700 per session. Though the number of sessions varies, most people need three to six sessions for optimal results. With this in mind, you may spend anywhere from $600 to $3,000 overall.

It’s important to keep in mind that these are estimates only, so you may find yourself looking at some very different numbers with your provider. Some factors that can affect the price of microneedling are the extent of your treatment, your provider, and how many follow-up treatments you need.

Are there ways to reduce or manage the cost?

Microneedling is usually billed on an out-of-pocket basis. You may qualify for insurance reimbursement if your doctor determines that the procedure is medically necessary. People who have scars from a traumatic injury or a required surgery may fall into this category. You’ll need to check with your insurance provider to learn more.
