How Does Microneedling Work?
Your provider has precision control over the depth of your microneedling treatment. At ZENA Medical, you can have your microneedling performed by a dermatologist instead of an aesthetician. A dermatologist can achieve a deeper and more intensive treatment.
Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin surrounded by healthy cells. These cells immediately respond with a flood of healing and growth factors. The controlled injury stimulates cells in the dermis to produce more collagen. It also increases cell turnover, so dull and damaged cells are replaced by bright, healthy ones.
The micro-channels allow deep penetration of skin-enhancing serums and treatments, bringing even more brightness and improvements in skin texture. You can also combine microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for a powerful rejuvenating boost. ZENA Medical also offers radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with the Genius RF system. The RF energy heats the cells of the dermis without heating the skin for improved collagen production.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
Microneedling costs depend on several factors. If an aesthetician performs the procedure, you can expect to pay $300 to $350. For a more intensive treatment with a dermatologist, you can expect $600 to $800. The addition of PRP or other treatments will add additional costs. Since most people need three to six treatments, your final price will vary. Dr. Zena will give you an accurate estimate based on your treatment plan.
