IMPROVE TEXTURE & TONE, MINIMIZE FINE LINES, REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF PORES
COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY FOR YOURSKIN
Of all the advanced professional skin treatments that tap into the skin's ability to heal and regenerate, one stands out in front of the crowd– microneedling. Microneedling is one of the most advanced aesthetic treatments that supports skin regeneration unlike any other – including laser, microdermabrasion and anything else that disturbs or disrupts the skin in some kind of way.
Microneedling is a non-ablative procedure that involves the usage of tiny surgical steel needles that gently pierce the top layer of the skin to increase the skin's production of natural growth factors.
The mechanism of action is rather simple, when the needles gently push through the very top layer of the skin, they pierce the viable epidermal cells known as keratinocytes. Those keratinocytes then naturally release protein molecules, growth factors and cytokines, the signaling messenger molecules which then flood through the rest of the skin. These molecules coordinate and instruct the skin's ability to heal.
Best Treatment for:
- Eliminating fine lines and reducing the appearance of deeper wrinkles
- Improving the look of scars
- Increasing epidermal strength & density. therefore improving skin tone.
- Helping acne by normalizing skin function & regulating sebum excretion
- Improving the appearance of Melasma (which cannot be safely treated with lasers.)
- Stimulates blood circulation
- Encourages the production of collagen
- Stimulates tissue regeneration
- Requires little or no downtime
- Can be performed on all skin types
- It can be used on multiple areas of the face including your scalp and the more delicate skin around your eyes
Q & A
Why Microneedling vs other ablative and heat based treatments?
Most lasers burn through the barrier and stimulate a significant amount of inflammation. Microneedling prevents any excess inflammation while tapping into the skin's regenerative capacity. This process is extremely conducive to what we see in children, and their body's natural ability to heal and regenerate itself. This is due to an abundance of circulating stem cells and growth factors in our body.
Microneedling naturally increases the skins production of growth factors. Not only is Microneedling a phenomenal way to stimulate regeneration via wound healing , but it also allows for an increase in nutrient uptake.
Why is AnteAge® Microneedling Solution used during my treatment?
While a fantastic treatment on its own, Microneedling is a small piece of the puzzle. To truly maximize and optimize the performance of a needling session, the session needs to be combined with the right topical nutritional tools that flood the skin with additional protein molecules to help heal that skin unlike any other topically applied product applied during a procedure.
The AnteAGE® Microneedling solution is just that product– a base of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, along with growth factors and cytokines. These tools, all naturally found within the human body, will actually go into the skin during the needling process helping to optimize the cell signaling that the needles naturally produce.
The combination of the needles' mechanism of action and topically applied AnteAGE® Microneeedling solutionwork to amplify the message between the skin cells, instructing them to heal, regenerate, produce collagen, and reduce inflammation unlike any other topical microneedling solution in the market.
How does a Microneedling session with AnteAge® compare to a Microneedling treatment with PRP?
While the AnteAGE® Microneedling Solution is just one of many available, it is important to be sure that whatever is being applied is naturally sourced from the human body– which the AnteAGE® solution is.
When compared to other popular treatments (like PRP/platelet-rich plasma), there are significant differentiating factors. PRP is drawn from the blood, centrifuged, and is applied topically. It also contains growth factors and cytokines.
These growth factors and cytokines, however, are not the ones that the skin requires while being highly inflammatory. PRP not only exacerbates inflammation, but research has actually proven that PRP is an ineffective microneedling companion.
The AnteAGE Microneedling Solution, however, floods the skin with the right types of growth factors, triggers an anti-inflammatory bio signal (telling the skin to heal at a very high capacity), and instructs the skin to regenerate itself like as it did in youth.
All of this while also reducing inflammation unlike any other topical product. It is the perfect solution to maximize and optimize the results of any microneedling treatment.
How long is a Microneedling Treatment appointment?
While treatment time varies depending on the targeted area, it typically takes up to 90 minutes. (Including 30 minutes of numbing time and 20 minutes Celluma LED Therapy)
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the area being treated, a series of 3-6 treatments spread 4-6 weeks apart is recommended to experience the full benefits of microneedling.
It is typical to experience some inflammation, redness and skin peeling for a few days after the treatment. However, these side effects quickly resolve themselves and you will see visible improvements in your skin within one week of the procedure.
