Is Microneedling Worth the Cost?

At In My Own Skin Med Spa, we’ve helped countless patients achieve fantastic skin rejuvenation results using this minimally invasive treatment. However, you might be wondering if microneedling is worth the cost. If you’re on the fence, our experienced providers are happy to discuss the benefits and limitations of this treatment at a consultation. 

1. What Does Microneedling Actually Do?

As we age, our collagen production slows by about 1% to 1.5% per year. This structural protein plays an essential role in tissue repair. Along with decreased elastin, collagen loss leads to common signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Microneedling boosts your body’s production of an age-defying trio: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. During the treatment, our skilled providers use tiny needles to stimulate the top layer of your skin. This kicks off a remodeling process to keep your skin smooth and firm.

At In My Own Skin Med Spa, we often add platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or radiofrequency (RF) treatments to microneedling appointments to amplify the effects. 

2. What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling has a wide variety of benefits. Patients at In My Own Skin Med Spa have used this treatment to:

  • Improve skin texture and tone.
  • Reduce stretch marks or body scars.
  • Decrease signs of aging like fine lines and skin sagging.
  • Minimize acne scars.
  • Diminish signs of sun damage like hyperpigmentation and age spots.
  • Increase the effectiveness of topical acne products.

Additionally, microneedling is an excellent alternative to laser treatments. Lasers can carry some hyperpigmentation risk if you have a darker or olive complexion. Microneedling is safe and effective on all skin tones.
