Clients call it a mythical treatment. AquaGold is really is a patented micro-channeling technology delivering biologics directly into the skin, and a revolutionary technology that provides hundreds of microinjections per minute without intense pain or downtime. It delivers beneficial ingredients, vitamins, and medications like Botox directly below the surface of your skin.
Laura Dyer, MSHS, PA-C at Dr. Amy Wechsler Dermatology in Manhattan, has been using a facial recently that is getting great results. Laura Dyer called AquaGold a “super mega facial that took only 20 minutes and gives you smaller pores, brighter tone, extra hydration, reduced fine lines, and generally wonderful skin.” According to Laura Dyer, celebrity clients come in for the AquaGold Facials Pre-Met Ball, brides are lining up to get the facial, and everyday clients love it.
What Does AquaGold Do for You?
AquaGold is different from traditional microneedling. It improves the texture of the skin through the direct effect on the needle punctures, and it also delivers specialized products through channels in the hollow microneedles.
AquaGold can target the exact depth of your skin and give you the results you want. It allows the products to be placed within the precise layers of the skin where pores and fine lines are. The treatment produces a natural-appearing outcome, and there are very few tell-tale signs that you have been treated. AquaGold is used to:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrinks large pores
- Creates soft and smooth skin texture
- Reduce redness
- Volumizes thin skin particularly around the eyes
- Addresses crepey skin
What exactly is AquaGold?
AquaGold uses a customized vail mixed with everything you need to solve your skin issues. Attached to the vial is a series of 20 needless, and each is smaller than a strand of hair. The needles are coated in gold plating that creates a lower chance of irritation or allergic reactions. The needles are hollow, and they transport the carefully concocted contents of the vial to the layers underneath the skin for maximum conditioning.
AquaGold contains the same high-quality FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler as traditional fillers. However, with AquaGold, the HA is placed in very small microdroplets throughout your skin. It is designed to smooth the actual skin layer. What you receive is a fresher, smoother, and more customized rejuvenation treatment.
What are the Steps of the Procedure?
First, your aesthetician will examine your skin to see what you need. If you have issues, for example, like large pores, mild acne scars, dryness, dullness, and fine lines around your eyes and lips, a customized mixture can be developed to address all of these concerns. Your customized mixture is loaded into the little vial, and you are ready to become beautiful.
Patients who had issues of large pores, mild acne scars, dryness, dullness, and fine lines around eyes and lips voted for a particular mixture. The mixture is vitamin B complex (an antioxidant) to combat dullness, Botox to tighten and smooth the skin, and Juvéderm Volbella (a hyaluronic acid-based filler) to help moisturize the skin. Your customized mixture can be formatted to combat your issues.
Your face will be pampered with numbing cream to keep you comfortable during the procedure. After you are thoroughly desensitized, the vail containing your mixture will be attached to the needles. The needles are stamped onto your face, similar to a microneedling treatment. One patient described the treatments as “similar to an itch you get after scratching a bug bite.” Your aesthetician will cover your entire face with the AquaGold treatment focusing on the more problematic areas.
AquaGold is designed to deliver the maximum amount of customized ingredients into your skin. Your entire face will be covered to give you the maximum benefit of the mixture and microneedling.
You will probably have a slight pinkish tint to your skin and maybe areas with tiny blood spots. However, there are no aftercare protocols you need to follow. You may see noticeable improvements in your skin in about a week when the Botox begins to work. At the same time, the hyaluronic acid molecules begin to develop their hydration holding capacity.
In about a week, you will see a transformation. Your skin will look fantastic and will notice the fine lines around your eyes and lips are diminishing. Acne scarring will be less pronounced, and the Botox ingredient will take away your minor expression lines. The best thing about AquaGold? It lasts up to three months.
