Microneedling with PRP

How much should I pay for Micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy?

First, it’s important to realize that your health insurance won’t cover any portion of the cost. This is an elective, cosmetic, facial rejuvenation treatment. It isn’t medically necessary, so Micro-Needling with PRP will never be covered. The cost will ultimately be yours to pay out of your own pocket or bank account.

Also consider that you may need multiple treatments. It is certainly true that a single treatment might be all you’ll need to get the full benefits. It’s also true that anyone can benefit from only a single treatment. It’s simply that they’d benefit even more from additional treatments. Individual treatment plans, like the patients they’re attached to, will always be different. Most patients will need between 3-6 treatments to get the maximum benefits, however.

Now for actual cost. $750 is a good estimated national average price for one session. Now let’s assume that your doctor recommends a total of 5 sessions. These will be given about 4 weeks apart. That’s a total of $3,750 over about 5 months. Yet remember—it’s equally likely you’ll only need 3 treatments for a total of $2,250.

But estimates are not real-world costs you pay using debit or credit. In reality, Prices can vary greatly by city, state, and geographic region. You will almost certainly pay more for this treatment in Los Angeles, CA, than Buffalo, NY, for example.

This is ironic, because there are many world-class doctors practicing in both cities. Every day, plenty of high-end Med-spa patients pay artificially high prices for nothing more than an expensive zip-code.

So Micro-needling with PRP isn’t cheap, but you’re paying for the best. This discussion is about cost, but there’s lots of online material about procedure itself. You’ll learn that treatments like this are among the only ways to obtain facelift-like results without actual surgery. It’s also a much less expensive option than permanent procedures, and has none of the risks of invasive surgery.

Price shouldn’t be your only consideration when selecting a medical provider. You should absolutely compare prices, however. It’s very common for doctors in the same region to charge significantly different rates. 

Can microneedling be used to improve the appearance of acne scars or stretch marks?

Yes, microneedling is a popular and effective treatment for improving the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. Here’s how microneedling addresses these concerns:

Acne Scars:

Microneedling works by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating the natural healing process and promoting collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain the skin’s structure and texture. In the context of acne scars:

  1. Collagen Induction: Microneedling induces the formation of new collagen, which can help fill in atrophic or depressed acne scars.
  2. Improves Texture: The increased collagen production contributes to improved skin texture and the reduction of uneven surfaces caused by scarring.
  3. Enhances Skin Renewal: Microneedling also promotes skin renewal, helping to fade hyperpigmentation associated with acne scars.

Stretch Marks:

Stretch marks, often caused by rapid stretching of the skin, can benefit from microneedling in the following ways:

  1. Collagen Remodeling: Microneedling triggers the remodeling of collagen fibers, which can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks.
  2. Increased Elasticity: By stimulating collagen and elastin production, microneedling can enhance skin elasticity, reducing the visibility of stretch marks.

Can microneedling be customized based on individual skin concerns and goals?

Yes, microneedling can be customized based on individual skin concerns and goals. Skincare professionals often tailor the microneedling treatment to address specific issues and achieve desired outcomes. Here are some ways in which microneedling can be customized:

  1. Depth of Penetration: Microneedling devices allow practitioners to adjust the depth of needle penetration. The depth can be customized based on the specific skin concern being targeted and the desired level of treatment intensity.
  2. Treatment Areas: Microneedling can be performed on various areas of the body, not just the face. Common treatment areas include the neck, décolletage, hands, and areas with stretch marks or scars.
