Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling remains a hot topic in aesthetics for a good reason. The minimally invasive double-down approach to fighting the hands of times works well to firm the skin, do aways with signs of aging and improve the skin’s overall texure. But nothing good in the world of aesthetics comes cheap, and many patients ask if the RF microneedling cost is worth it. We’re a hard YES, and although RF microneedling combines the benefits of RF and microneedling into a single session, the skin-firming effects and lit-from-within glow are worth every penny.
Is microneedling with RF worth it?
RF microneedling is a unique skin treatment and is worth the price. While both RF and microneedling are powerful standalone treatments, they pack even more punch to produce new collagen and elastin and improve the skin’s tone, texture, and firmness with a glowyness to it. The procedure entails creating micro-channels below the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production and ultimately improve the skin’s overall health. In addition, RF Microneedling has the added benefit of skin tightening. So naturally, the combination of RF and microneedling contributes to a higher price tag, which our patients say is worth it.
At AdvancedMD Aesthetics, we use the Secret RF machine. RF microneedling fans continually return to the treatment because they see dramatic results and say that the RF microneedling cost is worth every penny. Even some hard-to-tackle beauty issues, like acne scars, enlarged pores, and fine lines and wrinkles, are erased from the skin with a few sessions of RF microneedling.
How much does one treatment of RF microneedling cost?
Microneedling RF treatment costs vary depending on your location and how many sessions you need. A consultation is recommended to properly assess your skin and determine the best course of action. Call us today to schedule a consultation.
What determines a microneedling RF cost per session?
Quite a few factors go into determining RF microneedling prices, including, but not limited to:
- Your provider’s experience level
- How many treatments you will need, and the size of each treatment area
- The specific RF microneedling machine used during your treatment
- Additional procedures that are added to the treatment, like PRP
Is RF with microneedling expensive?
Microneedle RF treatment costs aren’t exactly cheap. On average, a single session can run around $900 depending on where you live, where you have the treatment done on your body or face, and which machine your provider offers. Still, RF microneedling’s benefits make the treatment well worth it.
RF microneedling is an advanced aesthetic treatment, and the technology and science behind it contribute to the overall cost. In addition, the consumables (meaning all the small tips and pieces needed for each session to be sterile to minimize infection and risks) also factor into the price you will be charged. RF microneedloing devices are expensive to purchase and maintain, just like lasers.
Do RF microneedling costs vary depending on the number of sessions required?
Yes. The number of RF microneedling sessions you and your provider ultimately decide on will affect the overall RF microneedling price. The more sessions you choose to do, the more expensive the treatment will become. But remember that RF microneedling results are cumulative, and just doing one treatment session likely won’t provide optimal results (although some patients say they notice improvements after the first appointment). Most patients need at least three RF microneedling treatment sessions (some require more) depending on the area that is being treated and what you hope to gain out of the treatment. For a more accurate read on how many sessions you will need to achieve optimal results based on the treatment area, the health of the skin, and your budget, schedule a consultation today!
Will my insurance cover the cost of RF microneedling?
No. Currently, the patient pays microneedling RF costs out of pocket since RF microneedling is an elective cosmetic procedure, meaning they are not medically necessary. Instead, the individual has chosen to undergo the treatment for aesthetic reasons, so there is no reason for your insurance company to cover the costs of your RF microneedling procedure. Typically, most insurance companies do not cover elective aesthetic procedures or treatments.
RF microneedling prices can be determined during a consultation with our staff.
Are there any post-treatment expenses or maintenance costs associated with RF microneedling?
RF microneedling prices are relatively straightforward, with no hidden costs. Since there are not generally any post-treatment expenses with RF microneedling, you will not need to pay for any secondary products or complimentary aftercare or healing products or treatments. However, it’s worth noting that RF microneedling results are long-lasting, but they are not permanent. So, to maintain your results, maintenance sessions are often recommended. These treatments can be done about one to two years after the initial treatment, and there is a separate cost for additional and maintenance sessions.
Can the customization of my microneedling RF cost more than other types of aesthetic treatments?
The benefit of RF microneedling is that your provider can customize the treatment to fit your individual needs and goals while taking into consideration what will benefit your skin best. But yes, that customization option can influence the RF microneedling price. However, many of our patients appreciate the fact that they can have the treatment tailored to their needs and find that more of a personalized approach, which can, in some cases, contribute to a higher RF microneedling price, be worth it.
