Traditional Microneedling

Treatment Objective:

Primarily targets fine lines, acne scars, and improves skin texture.


Creates micro-injuries that stimulate the body's natural wound healing processes, leading to cell turnover and increased collagen production.

Pain and Sensation:

Mild discomfort during the procedure, typically well managed with topical numbing cream.

Long-term Benefits:

Enhances skin rejuvenation, tightens pores, and may improve the efficacy of topical treatments by increasing absorption.

Ideal Candidate:

Best for individuals with early signs of aging, some types of scars, and those looking to enhance skin texture, tone and minimize pore size.

Growth Factor Microneedling

Treatment Objective:

Enhances the benefits of traditional microneedling by applying human growth factors to accelerate and amplify the healing and rejuvenating processes.


In addition to the benefits of traditional microneedling, the applied growth factors significantly boost skin cell regeneration and collagen production.

Pain and Sensation:

Similar discomfort as traditional microneedling, with potentially quicker recovery due to enhanced healing properties of growth factors.

Long-term Benefits:

More rapid improvements in skin firmness, reduction in deeper wrinkles, and potentially more lasting effects on skin rejuvenation.

Ideal Candidate:

Suitable for individuals with more pronounced skin issues, including deeper wrinkles, more significant sun damage, or those seeking more dramatic and faster rejuvenation effects. Excellent for acne scars, and those looking to enhance skin texture, tone and minimize pore size.

Additional Features:

Includes an AnteAGE Stem Cell Aftercare kit to maximize treatment benefits.

Can Growth Factor Microneedling be done on pregnant women?

Yes, but we will require a note from your doctor before proceeding with the treatment.

What are the potential side effects of Microneedling?

The most common risks associated with Microneedling include redness, swelling, and minor irritation of the skin. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days following the treatment. In rare cases, more serious complications such as infection, hyperpigmentation or scarring can occur, particularly if proper pre and post-care instructions are not followed.

How often can I have Microneedling treatments?

Microneedling sessions should be spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

How long does it take to see results from Microneedling?

You will see results from Microneedling typically start showing up around 1 week after your treatment but it will take up to 4 weeks to see the full results. Even after that 4 weeks is up your skin will still have increased collagen production for up to 1 year.

What should I do to prepare for a Microneedling treatment?

To prepare for a Microneedling treatment you should stop using exfoliating ingredients like AHA's, BHA's, Retinol and Benzoyl Peroxide 5 days prior to your appointment. You should also avoid direct sunlight and be diligent with your sunscreen, re-applying every 2 hours. Please contact us if you have any questions.
