What is AnteAGE MD?

AnteAGE MD micro-needling solutions consist of anti-inflammatory and pro-healing agents like cytokines, growth factors, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. These solutions are quickly and effectively absorbed in the skin with the help of precise micro-needling. The right micro-needling device creates micro-channels through which these solutions travel into the deeper layers of the skin. This is the moment when damaged tissue and skin cells are triggered to start renewing and repairing.

The treatment is a wonderful anti-aging procedure that reduces visible signs of aging and prevents the appearance of new ones.

This is the newest generation of Growth Factor skincare treatments that stimulates natural skin repair with special cells called Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells.

Mesenchymal stem cells that come from bone marrow are one of the most powerful cells in the body that can fight against injuries and inflammations. Once these cells leave bone marrow they go through the body, stimulate the healing processes and thus minimize the injury or damage.

Growth factors are responsible for cell growth, cell migration and healing of wounds. They are a subgroup of cytokines that have extracellular polypeptide proteins. What is unique about the Growth Factors that come from Bone Marrow is that they are very beneficial for the skin and keep it healthy and fresh. Inflammations can speed up the aging process but using anti-inflammatory growth factors can slow it down.

The stem/GF cytokines are a combination of cytokines that were extracted from bone marrow stem cells and growth factors. These stem cells are used in AnteAGE solutions and they communicate well with cells in humans.

AnteAGE MD stem/GF and Cytokines micro-needling solutions are used for improving skin quality and they rejuvenate the skin faster and more effectively than some other treatments. These solutions consist of growth factors and cytokines that have healing and anti-inflammatory characteristics. They promote the growth of new cells and also contain Hyaluronic Acid that hydrates the skin and makes it more voluminous at the surface layer.

How It Works

HOW DOES ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT WORK?

This is a minimally invasive treatment where the skin therapist uses a micro-needling device with very fine and sterile needles to puncture the skin and create micro-channels. The skin is punctured in a controlled manner, only superficially and at a pre-determined depth. The micro-needles stimulate the body’s natural healing process and micro-channels let specially designed serums get to the deeper levels of the skin.

The serums make the healing faster – the skin rejuvenates quickly which greatly reduces the downtime. They promote healthy skin cell function and can be absorbed much more effectively because of micro-needling. As the new collagen and elastin start to produce, the skin becomes youthful-looking and healthier. In addition to new collagen and elastin, new capillaries are also created which greatly improves blood circulation.

WHAT CAN ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT ADDRESS?

The treatment can improve skin issues for all skin tones (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI). It is suitable for both men and women who wish to improve skin condition, reduce acne and other scars, reduce hyperpigmentation (sun and age spots) and improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It minimizes the pores and protects the skin from inflammations. The treatment is a brilliant anti-age procedure, it brightens the skin, makes it firmer and gently lifted and keeps it youthful-looking.

The treatment can be safely performed on the face, the neck or the body.

AnteAGE triggers the skin’s ability to start the healing processes with Growth Factors and Stem Cytokines.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT?

AnteAGE micro-needling treatment is very powerful because it greatly increases the penetration of topical solution and thus enhances the results.

It is a safe procedure that increases blood circulation and triggers collagen and elastin production. As the treatment is performed with sterile micro-needles it causes no allergies. It can be performed even in sensitive areas of the face like around the eyes or on the hands. It doesn’t require a long recovery time and doesn’t cause serious side effects. Therefore it is safe for all skin tones, even the darker ones.

The results can be seen right after the first treatment session. They include:

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Skin is plumper and rejuvenated
  • Skin texture is much improved
  • Scars are visibly reduced
  • Pore size is minimized

AnteAGE MD treatment is a brilliant antiaging procedure that completely rejuvenates the skin, keeps it hydrated and prevents the appearance of new signs of aging.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS

  • WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THIS TREATMENT?

    Even though micro-needling treatment is very safe it is not suitable for patients who have active rosacea, eczema, cold sores, active acne, raised moles and severe solar keratosis.

  • WHAT DOES ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT INVOLVE?

    When the patient arrives at Lucia Clinic, first he/she is consulted with Lucia’s skin therapist who examines the patient’s skin concerns and decides if this treatment is suitable for him/her. Then the therapist creates a customized treatment plan, that will address the patient’s specific skin issues.

    The treatment plan includes the choice of micro-needling device:

    ● Dermapen - it is a micro-needling device that creates micro-channels in the skin with very fine needles.

    ● Dermal stamp - it is a manual micro-needling tool that is pressed directly onto the skin to treat scars and other skin imperfections.

    This treatment can also be an add on to other procedures like Morpheus, laser therapies, ablative or abrasive treatments or collagen boosting procedures for example.

    AnteAGE MD treatment serves as a topical applicator in this case. AnteAge micro-needling solutions bring wonderful results and enhance the benefits of micro-needling treatment. All the ingredients in these solutions are already found in the patient’s body so this add on treatment is completely safe and effective.

    When the treatment starts, the therapist uses the chosen micro-needling device to precisely create micro-wounds in the patient’s skin. For example, it can be a Dermapen applicator which the therapist uses to go over the whole patient’s face. While doing so, the therapist uses AnteAGE MD solution and applies it to the patient’s skin.

    Through these micro-channels AnteAGE MD solution travels deep into the skin layers and triggers the skin healing with growth factors, antioxidants, cytokines, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins. The damaged tissues and cells get quickly renewed and repaired.

    The treatment usually lasts for 60 minutes.

  • IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?

    Generally, it is not. The therapist applies a topical numbing cream to the patient’s targeted area before the treatment starts. So, some patients don’t experience any discomfort during the treatment, while others feel minimal discomfort when the micro-needles puncture the skin.

  • WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT SIDE EFFECTS AND DOWNTIME?

    The technique used in this treatment is controlled and very precise, so there is minimal pinpoint bleeding which quickly stops. The patient’s skin is red for about 24 hours post-treatment. Most patients can return to their normal everyday activities after 2 days. So the treatment downtime is minimal.

  • HOW MANY ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT SESSIONS ARE NECESSARY FOR THE BEST OUTCOMES?

    Even though the patient sees the improvements right after the first session, in order to achieve dramatic skin improvements, the patient may need 3 to 4 sessions. Each session should be one month spaced out.

  • WHAT ARE ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT RESULTS?

    After the treatment, the patient’s skin looks healthier, fresher, rejuvenated and has a lighter tone.

    Some patients see the first results 4 days after the treatment. Others will see significant skin improvements after 30 to 90 days.

    After the initial series of treatments, the patient can have additional touch-up treatments. When using AnteAGE skin products regularly and having the treatments the patient can significantly improve the quality of the skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and achieve a subtle lifting effect.

  • ANTEAGE MD TREATMENT HOME CARE

    AnteAGE MD products are available as topical products that are used at home. They are AnteAGE Serum and Accelerator. Both products consist of a high concentration of Stem Cell Cytokines and 20 other agents that are beneficial for the skin. It is one of the most effective 2 step home skin care treatments.

    AnteAGE Serum can reach deep layers in the skin and improve skin texture and tone, while at the same time it protects the skin and keeps it healthy.

    AnteAGE Accelerator keeps the skin moisturized and revitalized. It deeply nourishes the skin and protects it from inflammations.

    The patient uses these products on a daily basis and eventually reduces the aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines, saggy skin, hyperpigmentation and redness. The active agents in these products replenish lost stem cells and cause a natural healing process at deeper layers of the skin. With the regular use of the products, the patient can even prevent new aging signs and thus maintain a youthful appearance.

    The patient should start using these products a couple of hours after the AnteAGE MD micro-needling treatment when the micro-channels have completely closed.
