If you’re struggling with damaged or aging skin or difficulty with hair growth, microneedling for the skin or hair can help. Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment that speeds up the skin’s healing process and collagen production by making tiny, controlled injuries in the skin. This procedure also opens up the pores, priming the skin to reap the maximum benefits of any skincare product. When Ante-Age serum is added to the skin during microneedling, it promotes healing and production of elastin and collagen

When this defense system is healthy, the body immediately reacts to kill the harming pathogen while we are not even aware this is happening! We don’t feel sick and are unaware that anything happened. We come into contact with countless pathogens on a daily basis and the body’s defense system is elegantly and efficiently keeping us healthy.
