Collagen Induction Therapy with Microneedling
Dermarolling, or microneedling, is a useful and successful tool for treating a number of skin ailments. Used in combination with tried and tested skin care products, it can have a significant effect on the health and overall appearance of the skin with minimal downtime and discomfort. Microneedling stimulates the wound healing process to produce new collagen and elastin and, therefore, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and reverses the signs of aging and photo-damaged skin.
Needling alone will deliver limited results. Needling with AnteAGE Home Microneedling Solution improves the health and vibrancy of the skin. Scarring is reduced and hyperpigmentation inhibited. Needling increases product absorption rate by 80%.
Clinical studies have shown that microneedling is more effective than ablative laser resurfacing and just as effective as non-ablative treatments like CO2 lasers in stimulating collagen and elastin production.
NOTE: Lasers generate a fibrosis response that promote scar collagen (thick, parallel orientated bundles), while dermarolling results in increased TGF-B3, FGF-7and EGF which promotes natural collagen with scarless wound healing.
Instructions for using your new microneedling device.
Cleanse skin twice to remove all makeup and oil, pat dry.
While the skin is still wet begin to needle the skin using gentle but very firm strokes.
The skin should be pink when you finish. If it is not, complete the cycle again. You can also do the cycle twice on problem areas.
Once you have completed rolling every section of the face, neck, and chest, spritz with Le Mieux Iso-Cell Recovery Solution. This will hasten healing and increase penetration of Microneedling Solution.
For best results, wait 5 hours before applying anything else to the skin. You may spritz with Iso-Cell and reapply Hyaluronic Serum.
After 5 hours you may follow with AnteAGE Serum and Accelerator or the moisturizer of your choice.
Microneedling may be repeated 1 to 3 times per week. If you stimulate some light flaking, do not roll again until the flaking has subsided.
