As we age, many of us eschew the drugstore products and overpriced luxury brands (we’re looking at you, Crème de la Mer) in favour of medical-grade skin care that offers solid research data and proven results. At Age Management Institute, we want our clients to get the most out of their treatments and that includes at-home care to help extend your results. We’ve thoroughly researched each product line we carry to ensure you are getting safe, effective products.

We recommend Environ and ZO Skin Health products, as they have been personally selected and researched by Dr. Lourens.

With medical-grade skincare comes stronger formulations, increased efficacy, and a higher price tag than some drugstore brands. So how do you make your skin care products last longer and be more effective? We’re big fans of using Environ’s Cosmetic Roll-Cit, designed to amplify and intensify their product’s active nutrients, like Vitamins A, C and E, as well as peptides and anti-oxidants.

The key benefits to micro-needling at home:

Using Environ’s micro-roller before applying your skin care products improves absorption by 80%! You invest in good quality skin care products – micro-needling at home is a great way to get the most value and to improve your results.

Better penetration of the active ingredients in your skincare

As you gently move the roller over your skin, it creates thousands of tiny, painless pin-pricks. Products applied immediately after penetrate the skin through these micro-channels, delivering the active vitamins, peptides and anti-oxidants deeper and faster. Because the absorption enhances the absorption, it’s important to never use a micro-needling device with non-medical-grade skin care products. Introducing ineffective or compromised products deeper into the skin may increase your risk for inflammation or infection.

  • Save moneymicroneedling

After micro-rolling, the products you apply on your skin absorb more quickly. As a result, many people find they require less product and their skin feels even better.

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation

  • Improve skin tightness

  • Reduce the appearance of patchy skin

  • Reduce the appearance of surface blood vessels

The pinpricks created by micro-needling naturally signal your body that there has been a minor injury to the skin. Healing platelets race to the area to repair it, promoting the growth of collagen and elastin, which help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation.

How to get started with micro-needling:

Book an in-office professional-grade micro-needling treatment to inject liquid hyaluronic acid into the skin using Introfill technology

Dr. Lourens utilizes the Introfill machine to inject two syringes of liquid hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin. The Introfill application ensures effective and uniform delivery of the HA into the skin. The liquid HA is a powerful moisture-binding ingredient that occurs naturally in the body. By injecting it into the skin, it helps keep skin hydrated, rejuvenated and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And best of all, there is minimal downtime. Some redness may occur immediately following the treatment but lasts just a few hours.
