Microneedling Q & A

Sugar Land Medical & Aesthetics

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that involves tiny needles on a roller pricking your skin to stimulate collagen production and restore its youthful appearance. The procedure firms and smooths your skin, and is minimally invasive (despite using needles, which are daunting to some patients). To see the best results, you’ll need to visit the office for multiple microneedling sessions.

For an additional cost, you can also opt to add platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to your microneedling treatment. PRP therapy further tightens your skin while helping to heal the abrasions made with the needles. In short, it speeds up and assists the process of microneedling so you can see results faster.

There isn’t much recovery time needed after microneedling unless you’re prone to heavy bleeding or experience irritation as a side effect. After the procedure, your provider discusses the aftercare process in order to achieve the best results. You might also need other simultaneous treatments to maximize the effectiveness of microneedling.

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling can treat a variety of skin imperfections and is very effective in doing so. These include:

  • Large, visible pores
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Other scars
  • Loose skin

If you have scars or spots on any part of your body that make you feel self-conscious, microneedling is a great solution as long as you’re not pregnant and don’t have a serious skin condition. Your doctor can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure and if your skin will handle the treatment well.

How much does it cost?

Microneedling isn’t covered by health insurance because it’s a strictly aesthetic procedure, so it’s important to take the cost into account when considering it as a treatment option. Microneedling alone can cost from $100 to $700 per session depending on your needs, with an average cost of $300. You’ll need to take into account the necessity of multiple sessions when considering the cost.

If you opt for microneedling with PRP, your session will cost an average of $750. Your provider may offer payment plans or discounts, so it could benefit you to ask during your consultation.
