Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that improves the look of scars, boosts collagen, and encourages a clear complexion. It’s a minimally-invasive procedure that has been carried out since the mid-1990s and has gained popularity in recent years thanks to new technology.
Our collective of dermatology associates at the Laser Skin Care Center in Long Beach, CA, offers a range of microneedling treatments. Each procedure gets customized to a patient’s specific needs and gives results that are beyond compare.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is the process of inserting short, very fine needles into the skin. The purpose of microneedling is to rejuvenate the skin and combat common skin concerns like hyperpigmentation and fine line.
The micro-fine needles inserted into the skin are 0.5 to 2.5 mm in diameter, and the punctures feel more like pinpricks in the skin. What’s more, the needles only go surface-deep into the skin.
There are many benefits of microneedling compared to traditional cosmetic procedures. For a start, there are no lengthy recovery times. The process itself is also minimally-invasive, and each microneedling session only takes minutes rather than hours or days.
Microneedling is also a cost-effective way of reducing the effects of aging and hyperpigmentation, hence its rise in popularity in recent years. Microneedling treatments can even be used to reduce cellulite and sagging skin.
Average Microneedling Costs
The thing about microneedling treatments is they always get customized to the specific requirements of each patient. Therefore, there’s no standard or fixed price – otherwise, the treatment costs would be unfair to many patients.
It’s also worth keeping in mind that some patients may need more microneedling sessions than others. That’s because of the treatment required, the level of complexity in completing that treatment, and so on.
Each microneedling session costs between $300 and $700. The majority of patients will require three to six sessions to complete their treatment. There are many factors that contribute to the final cost of your microneedling treatment plan and the best way to understand an accurate price range is to schedule a consultation.
At the Laser Skin Care Center, you will always have an initial consultation to determine your needs. During your initial consultation, our friendly team of qualified dermatologists will tell you the approximate cost of your customized treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?
There’s no denying that microneedling is a popular way to improve your appearance without leaving permanent reminders of your treatment. Microneedling is a form of cosmetic treatment available to men and women.
You can use microneedling to tackle light scarring, combat the effect of aging, and deal with fine lines and wrinkles. If you experience any of those problems, the chances are high that you’re a good candidate for microneedling.
It’s important to keep in mind that as with other cosmetic treatments, microneedling isn’t without risk. The good news is that most patients only experience minor skin irritation immediately after the procedure, and it typically only lasts for a few days.
Microneedling should be avoided by patients who are pregnant, have open wounds, and have skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
