How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an effective skin rejuvenating treatment that targets wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, skin tone, and texture. It remains popular simply due to its results. However, microneedling costs are not exactly cheap, and a series of treatments is recommended to garner optimal results, so it’s important to budget accordingly for the procedure. Several factors can influence what microneedling will cost you, so it’s essential to understand the overall price and precisely what you are paying for.


Understanding RF Microneedling Expenses

Several factors dictate the overall microneedling cost, depending on your needs. The best way to get an idea of the overall price of a microneedling treatment is by scheduling a consultation. Some of the drivers in the price of your treatment include:


Your provider’s experience level will affect the overall process. Most experts who perform RF microneedling have undergone intense training and have a long-standing track record with the technique, making them more experienced and knowledgeable about performing it. Undergoing RF microneedling with someone who has little or no experience with the treatment may lead to less-than-ideal results and potentially even complications.

The device used

Several different RF microneedling machines exist; some are more expensive to run and utilize than others. At CARE Esthetics, we offer Morpheus8 RF microneedling. The device uses the deepest fractional treatment available and heats the tissue to 8mm deep. We can also use it to treat small and large areas of concern across the face and body for dramatic results. Since Morpheus8 RF is highly customized and provides unparalleled results, our patients find the microneedling cost well worth it.

The number of treatments needed and the size of the treatment areas

To reap the benefits of RF microneedling, you will likely need more than a single session. Most patients require at least three treatments spread four to six weeks apart to garner the best results. Once you reach your skin goals, you will likely need maintenance treatments yearly, which you should factor into your overall microneedling cost. Smaller treatment areas are also usually less expensive than larger ones.

Complementary procedures and treatments

In some cases, additional treatments and procedures may be recommended while undergoing RF microneedling for the best result. For example, you may be a candidate for a PRF treatment or a laser to help achieve your skin goals. Adding additional treatments to your RF microneedling can increase the price.


Average RF Microneedling Pricing

On average, the national cost of a standard microneedling RF treatment is about $1,000, but it can range from $500 to $2,400, depending on several factors. One of the most important factors when considering RF microneedling cost is the geographical location of the med spa, which can impact what your treatment sessions will cost. In some areas, like those that are rural and far away from a bustling city, RF microneedling costs less than in metropolitan areas. The best way to get an idea of the pricing and if it is competitive is to compare the treatments in neighboring areas to find a reputable med spa that offers microneedling within your budget.

Keep in mind that the RF microneedling cost of your treatments is not typically covered by insurance, and the entire price of each session must be paid out of pocket.


The Overall Value of RF Microneedling

Investing in your skin with the right treatments is the secret to a youthful appearance and a healthy complexion. Microneedling alone is an effective solution, but when paired with RF energy, the results are that much better—think improved skin tightening, increased collagen production, and an overall rejuvenating effect. However, some people may find the cost of microneedling to be expensive, but our clients love the results so much that they justify the cost as a skin investment.

Even though at-home creams and serums play an essential role in healthy skin and an anti-aging routine, the benefit of RF microneedling is far superior. To ensure that adding microneedling to your skincare routine works within your budget, review what you currently are spending on your skin and anti-aging routine and what is working and what isn’t. By making a few tweaks and replacing outdated technologies with new ones, like RF microneedling, the overall cost of the treatment may seem more palatable.
