Do you have loose, sagging skin due to collagen loss? This is a common aesthetic concern, along with fine lines, age spots, and enlarged pores. While wrinkle creams and serums can make your skin feel good, they may not make it look younger.
An effective way to tighten the skin and get a more youthful appearance is through microneedling. Miia Medspa offers Skin Pen microneedling in Rowley, MA. Read on to learn more about microneedling.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that aims to tighten the skin and resolve other complexion concerns. Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles, which make microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface.
These punctures stimulate a healing response in the deeper layers of the skin, which can produce new skin cells and increase collagen production.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment because it provides a wide variety of benefits for your skin. These benefits include:
- Tighter, firmer skin
- More even tone and texture
- Fading of dark age spots
- Smaller pores
- Reduction in acne scarring
- More youthful appearance overall
- Increased collagen production
Patients also enjoy microneedling because of how simple the process is. You can receive microneedling treatment in as little as one hour and return to your normal activity afterward. There’s very little recovery or downtime involved with this procedure.
Skin Pen Microneedling
Skin Pen microneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can address many of your complexion concerns.
The Skin Pen device is a handheld aesthetic tool that rapidly punctures the surface of your skin with ultrafine needles. This action stimulates an intense healing and regenerative response that can create new skin cells and boost collagen production.
The Complete SkinPen Microneedling Process
Are you interested in a SkinPen microneedling treatment? We want every patient to have a clear understanding of the cosmetic procedures they choose. This way, you can better prepare for the treatment and get ideal results.
To learn more about Skin Pen microneedling, take a look at our guide to the treatment from preparation to results.
Preparing for Treatment
Prior to your microneedling appointment, you will need to consult with us. The point of this consultation is to determine whether Skin Pen microneedling is right for you. Everyone has different cosmetic needs, which means that microneedling may or may not be the most suitable treatment for you.
During your consultation, we will assess your skin and go over your concerns to confirm that Skin Pen microneedling can produce the results you’re looking for. If not, we will discuss alternative options that may be a better fit.
There is little to no preparation required for your microneedling session. On the morning of your treatment, you should wash your skin with a gentle facial cleanser. Do not apply anything topical to your face, including makeup, skin care products, and medications. Your face should be completely clean when you arrive for your procedure.
The Microneedling Process
During a microneedling treatment, we need to maneuver the SkinPen device around all areas of your face. This is why we have you lie back flat or in a reclined position with your head tilted upward.
We begin by performing a quick cleanse of your skin to remove any debris or bacteria that may have accumulated on your face before arriving. Once your skin is clean, we can apply a topical anesthetic for optimal comfort during the procedure.
When your skin is properly numb, we begin the microneedling process. Throughout this portion of the treatment, we move the tip of the Skin Pen device around the surface of your skin to make the tiny punctures. The punctures are so small that they’re undetectable to the naked eye.
Once the Skin Pen device has been applied to your whole face, the microneedling treatment is complete. This entire process takes from 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
Your Microneedling Results
While you may notice an immediate tightening in your skin in the days that follow your session, it will take several weeks to see the complete results of your microneedling treatment. Your skin needs time to generate new collagen and respond on a deeper, cellular level.
Most people see final results two to three weeks after their microneedling session. There are certain topical products that can speed up these results and make them more pronounced. We can discuss these products during your consultation.
There are certain recommendations you should consider after your microneedling treatment. The most important tip is to avoid potential irritants, including prolonged sun exposure, exfoliating products, and some cosmetics. These can hinder your healing process and impact your results.
The Best Candidates for SkinPen Skin Tightening
Many people are good candidates for a microneedling procedure and can experience its multiple benefits. If you have any of the following, you may qualify for Skin Pen microneedling:
- Loose, sagging skin

The only way to confirm that Skin Pen is the right choice for you is by scheduling a consultation at our office. We will go over the treatment and discuss your cosmetic goals to make sure microneedling will yield the results you’re looking for.
