Turning Back The Clock
The "Skin Pen" Experience
Results for Truly healthy skin
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, large pores and uneven skin texture. Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a great way to address these signs of aging at a cellular level. With the use of “Skin Pen” micro-needle device, we induce the production of collagen & elastin by stimulating and manipulating the body’s natural healing properties. A safe and effective method for all skin types.
By microneedling, we increase the availability of cell nutrients and triggering of the wound healing cascade. By causing a response in the skin in a complex signaling system, a rapid re-epitheliazation occurs resulting in more collagen and a tightening effect. Skin is effectively remodeled with the outcome of beautiful, youthful looking skin.
What is Microneedling
In a microneedling procedure, a medical device covered with fine, shallow needles is used to make hundreds of tiny, invisible punctures in the surface of the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s wound healing response, increasing cell turnover and production of collagen and elastin – to keep the skin resilient, soft, and youthful.
Collagen is the protein present in all our organs and tissues that provides integrity, elasticity, and firmness and helps keep the skin supple. Increased collagen production resulting from microneedling treatments can help fill in fine lines, plump the skin, and create a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling can be a powerful treatment to slow the signs of aging, and stimulate growth of collagen and elastin, which is essential to maintaining younger-looking skin. It can help prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming. With the generation of new skin cells triggered by this treatment, only a few sessions can noticeably reduce deep wrinkles on the forehead, fine lines, and crow’s feet.
Results with microneedling are completely natural, as it uses the natural healing mechanisms of the body. As there is little to no downtime with this minimally-invasive procedure, it serves as an excellent maintenance treatment for women and men who want to delay the signs of aging.
microneedling for acne scars
For patients with acne scars, research published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has shown that microneedling therapy can produce a remarkable improvement in the visibility of scarring. As longer needles may be used to achieve maximum results for severe acne scars, treatment should be performed by a skilled medical professional.
Professional grade microneedling devices can use needles as long as 3 mm for maximum effectiveness in treating deep acne scars below the surface of the skin. Researchers in a study published in Dermatologic Surgery compared fractional laser treatments to microneedling for effectiveness in resolving acne scars. Both treatments were found to be effective and comparable, although microneedling has fewer side effects, and less downtime.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
Microneedling is a virtually painless procedure, performed in sessions typically lasting less than 60 minutes. An anesthetic cream will be applied to your skin so you are comfortable during treatment. A layer of water may also be applied for lubrication so the microneedling device will glide more smoothly. The device is then rolled over your skin to create tiny micro-injuries in the skin surface.
Your skin may appear somewhat red after treatment, appearing and feeling like a mild sunburn. The appearance of the skin will return to normal within a few days, and results become visible gradually. The natural growth of collagen stimulated by the treatment continues in the weeks and months following your microneedling sessions.
After numbing the skin, we safely run the “Skin Pen” micro-needling device over the skin at varying depths with little to no discomfort. Here at Omni we utilize a powerful serum called AnteAGE MD® especially designed for micro-needling. During your treatment we administer the AnteAGE MD® serum containing cytokine (growth factors) from adult mesenchymal stem cells, our bodies natural healers. These laboratory grown cytokines are specialized for skin repair, regeneration & rejuvenation. Creating biomimicry, collagen induction coupled with the stem cytokines work to reverse the visible signs of aging in a way that is scientifically advanced yet natural.
How many sessions will i need
It takes more than one treatment to achieve optimal results with microneedling. Depending on the areas treated and your cosmetic goals, you may need 3 to 6 microneedling sessions to arrive at the maximum results. If you are treating deep wrinkles, severe sun damage, stretchmarks, or scarring, you may require 6 sessions or more. Treatments are generally spaced 3 weeks to a month apart for greater safety.
Where do the Stem Cell Cytokines & Growth Factors come from? AnteAGE® sources their stem cells from the bone marrow of young, healthy, pre-screened adult donors. The cells are cultured in a laboratory, within a controlled environment that fosters production of the biosignals that will engage in skin repair and rejuvenation. We then harvest and extract the powerful growth factors and cytokines inside, discarding the cell itself. Our products are 100% free of inflammatory cells, cell fragments, RNA, or DNA.
Is there a difference between bone marrow stem cells and plant stem cells? Mesenchymal stem cells originating from bone marrow are the most powerful and versatile population in your body, able to transform into myriad cell types to fight injury and inflammation. As they leave the bone marrow and travel throughout the body, these stem cells act as command and control centers, directing the process of healing to minimize overall damage. We can't live without these cells, and yet we have fewer of them working for us with each passing day.
Why we use AnteAGE MD® in our treatments. With time our skin loses the ability to repair the daily damage caused by external factors. With young skin, our naturally occurring stem cells are robust and responsive, keeping skin smooth, elastic, and radiant. AnteAGE® restores the lost regenerative power of stem cell growth factors to promote younger-looking skin, no matter what your age.
