What is AnteAge MD Brightening?

We use microneedling at multiple depths where pigment from inflammation and melasma occurs to introduce AnteAGE MD Brightening Solution. Growth Factors and Cytokines are mixed with Tranexamic Acid and anti-pigment peptides to rejuvenate and brighten skin, treating conditions such as melasma and post-inflammatory pigmentation.

We consider treating melasma in our NYC office one of the most important procedures we do. Melasma is a condition that causes dark discolored patches on the face and is much more common in women, although it can occur in anyone.  Because it is a chronic condition without a cure, it can be a very frustrating and distressing condition for patients.

Thankfully we now have great treatments that can significantly improve the discoloration and even out skin tone.  With continued maintenance the improvements can also be sustained. 

Holistic Approach to Treating NYC Melasma Patients

Skin Regime May Include Sunscreens, Products, Facials, Laser Treatments and Other In-Office Therapies

We treat melasma in our New York City office with a combination of in office therapies, at home medications, and sunscreen. Our favorite therapies for melasma are picosecond lasers such as Picoway that have been shown in studies to improve melasma as well as medical microneedling.

Microneedling with AnteAGE MD Brightening is the perfect solution for melasma as its mixture of growth factors and cytokines regenerates new even tone skin, and it also has anti-pigment peptides and tranexamic acid that has been shown to be beneficial for patients with melasma in particular.

AnteAge MD Brightening Helps With Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Another condition we treat with AnteAGE MD Brightening is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.  Much like melasma, skin darkening that occurs following an inflammatory condition such as allergic reaction, eczema, or acne, is caused by excess pigment in multiple layers of skin.  Using medical microneelding at multiple depths with AnteAGE MD Brightening solution is an easy, safe, and gentle way to reverse this type of hyperpigmentation as well.  

What to Expect and Results

The treatment consists of 5 in office visits where we use a microneedling device to introduce the solution of growth factors and cytokines that are combined with anti-pigment peptides and tranexamic acid to different depths of skin. A numbing cream is applied prior to treatment.  Skin will be pink to red for 1-2 days. Between sessions a sunscreen containing zinc oxide and an at home skin care regimen is maintained.

The therapy can be used as a stand alone treatment for melasma or can be combined with other procedures such as Picoway laser to boost results.
