From face fillers to lasers and chemical peels, there are many procedures already available in an array of hyper-specialised options to treat any skin issue. While these treatments bring in various benefits to the skin, some people would prefer something with a little less downtime to fit in in their busy, everyday lives.
The Aquagold has become massively popular among celebrities when they prepare for important events and appearances. Even Kim Kardashian tried it to prep her skin for the recent Met Ball, which left her with a glowing complexion. So, what is this treatment about?
Unique and revolutionary
The Aquagold Fine Touch treatment involves the use of a micro-channeling device with a patented gold-plated needle system to deliver custom solutions into skin. It is a painless alternative to traditional microneedling, using 20 microscopic needles that are finer than a human hair strand and plated in 24-karat gold. These needles are hollow and attached to a small bottle that will be filled with a customized skin cocktail solution that addresses the needs of each individual patient.
Because the microneedles are hollow, the solution gets infused and delivered directly into the skin at a consistent depth, so they can be absorbed more effectively. The handheld device contains a blend that is completely tailored to each patient, consisting of active ingredients based on individual skin needs such as Botox, stem cells, growth factors, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. This provides you with the versatility to put whatever you like and increase its penetration to your skin.
What is it used for?
As time passes, the collagen and elastic fibers in your skin break down and the skin will appear rougher, drier, less firm and dull-looking. This treatment can help improve the overall skin quality and rejuvenates the skin for a healthy glow.
Other benefits include:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrink enlarged pores
- Reduce sebum production
- Brighten skin
- Improves hyperpigmentation and scarring
- Obtain a dewy, glass-like skin
Aquagold can be used on the face, forehead, neck, chest, around the eyes and mouth, and the back of the hands.
How is the procedure?
After going through consultation with your doctor on your skin concerns, the customized skin cocktail solution is inserted into the delivery device. Your skin will be cleansed and numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. Your doctor will begin stamping it on your face repeatedly and you may feel a small stinging or prickly sensation. This will allow a maximum amount of the ingredients to be delivered into the skin.
Because the microneedles are tiny and microscopic, this reduces the chances of micro tears, bleeding and excess redness after the procedure. It provides a much gentler treatment that can deliver ingredients into the dermis and stimulate cellular renewal and collagen production in the skin.
The treatment takes only 15 minutes and results can be seen within a week after just 1 treatment. It will typically last for up to 6 months. As there is no downtime following the procedure, this makes for a perfect lunchtime treatment and to end your day with a completely rejuvenated, glowing skin!
