SkinPen Microneedling can stimulate the body’s natural collagen production and promote the renewal of skin cells, resulting in smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for improving the overall texture and appearance of the skin. This procedure involves the use of a handheld device with tiny needles that puncture the skin’s surface to create controlled micro-injuries. The body’s natural healing process then begins, resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which help to firm and smooth the skin.
What are the Benefits of SkinPen Microneedling?

- Stimulates collagen and elastin production
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Safe and minimally invasive

How Much Does SkinPen Microneedling Cost in Boston & Newburyport, MA?
The cost of your SkinPen Microneedling treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan.

What is the SkinPen Microneedling Treatment Like?
Before the SkinPen Microneedling treatment begins, we will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. Then, we’ll use a handheld device to create tiny punctures in the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. The treatment is generally painless and most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. After the treatment is complete, we’ll apply a soothing serum to the treatment area to aid in the healing process. The entire process typically takes 30-60 minutes to complete.
Is There Downtime After SkinPen Microneedling?
There is typically little to no downtime associated with SkinPen Microneedling treatments. Some patients may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated area, but this usually subsides within a few hours to a day. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure, with a few exceptions. You should avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, sweating, swimming, and any activity that causes irritation to the treated area. It’s also important to avoid using any skincare products that contain harsh or active ingredients such as retinoids, glycolic acid, or exfoliants for at least 24 hours after the treatment. It’s recommended to wait at least 48 hours before resuming any strenuous exercise or activity to allow the skin to fully heal.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from SkinPen Microneedling?
Most patients notice an improvement in their skin’s texture and tone within a few days to a week after their first treatment. It typically takes about four to six weeks for patients to see the full benefits of the treatment, which include reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as improvement in skin firmness and elasticity. For best results, patients usually need a series of SkinPen microneedling treatments. We may recommend three to six treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. After the initial series of treatments, patients may benefit from occasional maintenance treatments to maintain the results.
