Microneedling

Microneedling is effective in producing firmer, softer skin with reduced pigment abnormalities, and diminished fine lines and coarse lines. In our youth, stem cells are robust and responsive in keeping our skin at its best. As we age, the ability to repair diminishes due to having fewer regenerative stem cells. By combining Microneedling with the incredible reparative and rejuvenating properties of AnteAGE MD Stem Cell growth factor products, we are able to enhance the benefits of Microneedling, minimize downtime, and reveal smoother, tighter, more youthful looking skin. AnteAGE Microneedling helps improve the appearance of:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improves sagging skin

  • Improves texture and tone

  • Minimizes pores and reduces hyperpigmentation

  • Improve Acne Scars, stretch marks, injury and surgical scars

  • Suitable for all skin types

The microneedling pen creates micro perforations in the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. AnteAge serums contain potent growth factors derived from human bone marrow stem cell cultures, which demonstrate potent anti-inflammatory effects that reduce healing time. Through the repair process, there is visible improvement in skin texture, firmness and elasticity, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

What is the downtime?
Total healing time varies for each individual. The AnteAge serum accelerates your skin’s healing process. Some heal completely within 24 hours, other may experience swelling and redness/pinkness (similar to a sunburn) for 2-4 days. There may be some slight sloughing off of the top layer of skin at 3-4 days post treatment. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. Your skin can feel tight and dry during this time. A non-irritating facial moisturizer can be used as needed.

 

When will I see results?
Most patients notice their skin is smoother and more luminous about 7 days post treatment. The natural healing mechanism of your skin continues over the course of several weeks. For those considering a micro-needling regimen, you should not see it as short-term gains but a long-term marathon. The damage that occurred over the years will not disappear immediately. Improvements can continue for up to 3-6 months following your last treatment. *Individual results will vary.

 

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments can vary based on your individual goals and the health of your skin. True change in skin happens over a series of sessions. For most people, an average of 4-6 treatments spaced at 4 weeks apart is recommended. Those with advanced photoaging, deep wrinkles, and acne scarring may require 6+ treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. A maintenance plan will need to be developed to help maintain the results.

Micro-needling is an effective, minimally invasive treatment to support your skin’s long-term vitality.
