Instructions for using your new microneedling device:
For optimal results, cleanse skin twice to remove all makeup and oil, pat dry.
Working one section of the face at a time, generously apply AnteAGE® MicroNeedling Solution.
While the skin is still wet, begin to needle the skin using gentle but very firm strokes.
- Roll the skin up and down, vertically 5 times.
- Roll the skin back and forth, horizontally 5 times.
- Roll the skin up and down, diagonally 5 times.
- 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.
After one hour apply the AnteAge® Serum and Accelerator.
Finish with your favorite non-chemical daily SPF. We recommend Tizo for a non-chemcial finish.
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.
Cleaning Your Device
Run 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol over the device, allow to air dry and place in our UV Sanitizing Bag.
Commonly known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin's top layer. This technique initiates a cascade and release of natural growth factors (your skin's native regenerative proteins) and allows a dramatic increase in product penetration.
Home Microneedling Vs. Medical Microneedling
At-home microneedling utilizes a handheld stamp or micro derma roller with 0.2 mm –.25 mm needles. Needling at this depth is often described as microchanneling.
The tiny needle size maintains shallow depths and works within the skin's very top layer to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and texture. In contrast, medical microneedling, which is performed by trained professionals in a clinical setting, utilizes microneedles ranging between .5 mm–2.5 mm, and is ideal for scar tissue and corrective work, deeper lines and wrinkles, and coarser skin types. Both home and medical microneedling help to stimulate the skin’s natural production of regenerative proteins and upregulates enzymatic activity to optimize healthy cellular communication, and absorption of topical nutrients.
