The AnteAGE® hair treatment captures the power of natural, rejuvenating Growth Factors, delivered to the scalp using Medical Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy). Microneedling creates microscopic perforations in the upper layers of the skin. The minor, controlled trauma initiates a natural healing process that promotes platelet and epidermal growth factors through platelet activation and skin wound regeneration mechanisms, activation of stem cells in the hair bulge region, and overexpression of hair growth-related genes
including VEGF, B catenin, and WNT, among others. Supplemented with the AnteAGE® Hair Microneedling Solution, the treatment area is flooded with additional biological signals to enhance and optimize follicular communication and signaling pathways.
For the first few hours after Microneedling, penetration of topically applied actives is greatly enhanced. For this reason, it is important to apply only bio-signaling molecules (such as AnteAGE® Cytokines and Growth Factors). Growth Factors and Cytokines can reduce inflammation, promote protein synthesis, and new cell growth. Microneedling generally requires anesthetic pre-treatment. This is typically accomplished by applying a local topical anesthetic for 30 minutes prior to treatment.
