To address skin quality and pigmentation issues, Dr. Aguilera often turns to microneedling, but he doesn’t stop there. He also adds infusions with megadoses of active ingredients, which are part of the MG Collection from Dp Derm (Miami, Fla.)
Offering convenience and ease-of-use, these professional use products come in individual luer-lock compatible glass vials, ensuring that the practitioner can efficiently deliver the right combination of skincare ingredients for various skincare needs.
Packaged to the highest Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards, the sterile pressure vacuum sealed packaging features a convenient silicone dispenser nozzle with a luer-lock tip, enabling the practitioner to dispense the formulation directly into an Anti-Contamination Management (ACM) sterile kit. Alternatively, the product can be drawn up with a sterile lure-lock syringe for more precise placement during the treatment.
During an in-clinic microneedling procedure, apply the appropriate MG Collection formula to cleansed, disinfected skin one area at a time, then proceed with the microneedling treatment as per instruction.
MG-HA35+ was designed to intensely hydrate skin & help improve the visible effects of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, laxity, and overall tone and texture. as well as restore basal barrier function, and improve the overall integrity of stratum corneum.
It is a highly potent and versatile solution which contains an unprecedented 35mg of hyaluronic acid per mL. Hyaluronic acid in MG-HA35+ contains 3 varying sizes of the HA molecule, allowing it to absorb 150% more effectively that other forms of hyaluronic acid. This patented technology is known as the HylaFuse Complex.
MG-HA35+ also contains Calphasomes - an advanced delivery technology for both oil and water based bioactives. Calphasomes help to enhance penetration, protect and improve barrier function, uphold the integrity of the stratum corneum, and increase the rate of skin cell regeneration.
Another innovative technology contained in MG-HA35+ is geranylgeranylisopropanol, or GGP, a revolutionary breakthrough which aims to lengthen telomeres, thus prolonging the life of a cell and reducing visible signs of aging.
MG-HA35+ is further fortified with antioxidants, peptides, Vitamins A, B, C, E and Zinc.
MG-HA35 is a unique and highly potent solution which was designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restore basal barrier function, and improve the overall integrity of stratum corneum.
MG-HA35 features the patented HylaFuse Complex which contains 3 varying sizes of the HA molecule, allowing it absorb 150% more effectively that other forms of hyaluronic acid. What's more, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in MG-HA35 is an astounding 35mg per mL -- significantly higher than concentrations found in most cross-linked fillers.
Another innovative component contained in this formulation is the Calphasomes technology -- a delivery mechanism designed to aid absorption of both oil- and water-soluble bioactives, and helps to protect and improve barrier function, uphold the integrity of the stratum corneum, and increase the rate of skin cell regeneration.
The formula is further fortified with Zinc and Vitamins C & B5.
MG-R.A.S. (Reverse Aging and Scars) is best suited for treatments targeting the visible appearance of aging, such as deep expression lines, wrinkles, laxity and dullness, as well as treatments focusing on revision of scars.
The formula is a blend of antioxidants, vitamins, peptides and botanical extracts known for their anti-aging and skin enhancing effects, all encapsulated within the HylaFuse Complex, which ensures their delivery deeper into the skin.
Retinaldehyde is just one of many performance ingredients in MG-R.A.S. contributing to its high efficacy. It is commonly thought of as the most active form of Vitamin A available without a prescription, and has the ability to convert either up (to retinoic acid) or down (into retinol), depending on reactivity of the skin, thus reducing chances of a retinoid reaction and making it suitable even for the most sensitive skin types. Retinaldehyde is known to improve and regulate cellular activity, thus helping improve fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, tone and texture of the skin.
Darutoside is another potent component which has regenerative, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, which is why it is used in the treatment of stretch marks. It is also used to assist with firming the skin and as an anti-aging agent.
MG-R.A.S. also contains vitamin E, centella asiatica extract, and copper peptides
Treatment of unwanted hyperpigmentation is one of the most common reasons for people to look to medical aesthetics for a viable solution. MG-BL is a highly specialized treatment serum aimed at addressing various types of hyperpigmentation, including sun damage, melasma, PIH, and age related discoloration.
Encapsulated within 3 differently sized molecules of the HylaFuse Complex, active ingredients in the MG-BL formulation work to normalize melanocyte activity and prevent melanin overproduction due to injury, free radical exposure, sun damage, as well as other intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
One of these ingredients is kojic acid, which is a tyrosinase inhibiting by-product extracted from different types of fungi. Kojic acid has antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, ad is often considered a less-aggressive answer to hydroquinone when addressing dark spots and pigmentation.
MG-BL also contains Uva Ursi, or bearberry, known for its ability to brighten skin and lighten unwanted pigmentation, as well as Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP), which is a naturally occurring water-soluble derivative of Vitamin C. Clinical research has determined that sodium ascorbyl phosphate retains many of the same properties as pure vitamin C, but the molecules of the substance are far more stable. It is a powerful antioxidant that is known to promote collagen formation and fight acne.
MG-CLR combines a number of antimicrobial peptides and biocompatible extracts designed to clear imperfections and enhance complexion of skin affected by issues such as acne, blackheads/comedones, open pores and excessive oil production.
Certain ingredients in MG-CLR have also been shown to help reduce pigmentation and improve overall skin tone, as well as increase skin elasticity.
Used in many acne products to enhance the natural defence system, oligopeptide-10 is an antimicrobial peptide derived from 15 naturally occurring amino acids. It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and is not susceptible to antimicrobial resistance.
MG-CLR also contains the extract of Boswellia serrata, which is a known anti-inflammatory, and is often used in anti-aging treatments and acne medications. It has been clinically shown to improve skin elasticity and visibly reduce wrinkle depth. It also calms and soothes the skin, and helps to decrease sebum production.
The formula also contains other anti-inflammatories, such as licorice root extract, which is also an effective tyrosinase inhibitor, and Niacinamide, which helps to prevent moisture loss, improves skin elasticity, strengthens barrier function, and inhibits melanosome transfer.
Like all formulas in the MG Collection, MG-CLR also features HylaFuse Complex which enables more effective penetration of these components into the skin.
