AnteAGE® Growth Factors

AnteAGE® Growth Factors

Research has revealed that targeted biosignals play an important role in tissue repair, particularly the skin. AnteAGE® pioneered the science of reactivating the skin’s natural regenerative properties by utilising Cytosignals that mimic our body’s own growth factors to restore youthful skin. The scientists behind AnteAGE® have harnessed the power of growth factors to encourage your skin to behave youthfully and heal beautifully.

Boost Your Skin’s Natural Healing Abilities Your skin works hard to protect you every day. Stem cells within your skin contain hundreds of different growth factors and cytokines used to manage the healing process and regeneration. These are the agents in your body that command regeneration.

With young skin, our naturally occurring stem cells are robust and responsive, keeping skin smooth, elastic, and radiant. But as we age, we have fewer of these cells available to repair damage. Over time, injuries add up and our skin health deteriorates.

AnteAGE® scientists have replicated our body’s natural abilities with recombinant growth factors to regain your skin’s ability to behave youthfully.

‍The AnteAGE® Difference

Recombinant Cytosignals are cultured in a laboratory, within a controlled environment that fosters production of the biosignals that may command skin repair and rejuvenation. AnteAGE MD® also offers products that support in clin skin treatments, such as microneedling, Morpheus8 radiofrequency or Lumecca IPL. Following in-office treatments, users can minimize healing times and continue to increase rejuvenating benefits using AnteAGE® home skincare and hair systems.

What results can Microneedling/Morpheus8 in combination with AnteAGE MD® achieve?

Visible improvements in;

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Texture and Tone
  • Pore size
  • Acne Scars
  • Stretch Marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
Why add AnteAGE MD® growth factors to your treatment?

Studies have shown adding growth factors to your microneedling/Morpheus8/ Lumecca IPL treatments will reduce downtime and redness by up to 50%. Typically most redness will have resolved 24 hours post treatment. -One treatment of microneedling in combination with growth factors can replenish the amount of collagen that we typically lose in a year.

When growth factors are added to your microneedling/morpheus8 treatment a significantly greater amount of collagen and elastin will be produced. This is the clever technique of growth factors tricking your own natural wound healing process to think that there is a greater trauma than there actually is. Growth factors are therefore maximising your result possibility.

AnteAGE MD® growth factor solution delivers anti-inflammatory, rejuvenating growth factors and hyaluronic acid to the skin. This combination can achieve dramatic results with minimal discomfort and downtime.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)/ Vampire Facial
AnteAGE MD® growth factors
How is it obtained?
Involves taking your blood and then by mixing in a centrifuge the liquid plasma components separate.
A pre-mixed vial of growth factors and hyaluronic acid.
Contamination Risk
5% contamination risk of the product being delivered.

How long for results to reflect?
At least 3 sessions of microneedling necessary for notable results.

Expected Downtime

Due to a significant yield of growth factors downtime and redness is said to be reduced by up to 50%.
Are results predictable?
  • Results become very unpredictable once a patient is aged 40+.
  • One cannot know what growth factors are present in each blood draw. In the case of hair PRP it is possible that one may be re-injecting growth factors that induce hair loss rather than restore it.
  • For each treatment a known quantity and type of growth factors is present.
  • In the case of AnteAGE MD® Hair growth factors it is targeted to switch hair growth back on.
Who is unsuitable?
