Is Aquagold® microinfusion for you? Yes, yes it is!

Aquagold microinfusion the best facial treatment I have ever performed on myself.
Some people stay away from skin treatments because they don’t like needles, or don’t want to look like they’ve had work done. Now there’s Aquagold® Fine Touch™, a new microchanneling treatment to improve damaged skin with no bruising or down time. Aquagold is a revolutionary microchannel device that contains 24-karat channels, each of which is smaller than a hair follicle. This device delivers products such as dermal fillers, muscle relaxants, retinol, antioxidants, and stem cells directly into the skin.
Applying anti-aging products directly under the skin allows them to be absorbed much more effectively and with a longer duration of effectiveness. Deeper penetration of these active ingredients results in a more healthy and vibrant appearance of the skin. Aquagold is a versatile tool for treating a number of cosmetic facial issues such as:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Acne scarring
• Decreased skin elasticity
• Loss of facial volume
Depending on a patient’s concerns and desired results, each treatment is individually customized to address those unique and specific needs.
Botox and Dysport in small levels at the surface of the skin, where it is not near a muscle, improves the size of the pores, and decreases redness over time. This can help acne. Dysport provides a natural, gentle smoothing of the skin.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can improve the quality and appearance of the uppermost layer of skin. This is ideal for patients looking to reduce eye puffiness, dulled skin, or fine lines. PRP provides additional collagen stimulation and new cell growth. These benefits will not be seen immediately, but will improve gradually over months.
Deeper wrinkles often require larger needles and more volume of dermal fillers. However, other problem areas, such as fine lines around the eyes, or lost volume in the upper lip, are much more suited to an Aquagold treatment. Microchanneling with dermal filler provides a natural-looking increase in skin suppleness.
Because the Aquagold treatment offers buildable results, it works well with other treatments. Used in conjunction with deeper dermal filler injections or after a laser treatment, Aquagold can enhance results. It is also an ideal addition to surgical facial rejuvenation, such as facelift surgery, and can help maintain results.
Aquagold is best used for patients who are looking for a softer, more youthful appearance, but do not require dramatic changes. Microinfusion treats the superficial layers of the skin to provide a moderate, though noticeable, improvement in skin texture, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and increase in collagen production.
While microinfusion is not a replacement for injectable treatments, the small size allows for treating tighter spaces, and the small volume of solution that is applied helps to ensure an even, natural result. It can be effectively used on the face, neck, and décolletage.
The procedure is virtually pain free. Unlike many dermal fillers injections, the treatment does not require an anesthetic. The skin of the face is cleansed, and the chosen ingredients are placed in the sterile tube of Aquagold device. It is then pressed into the skin in an overlapping pattern. For the first time products are being delivered into the skin, not on it or underneath it. This creates a soft, natural-looking result, leaving the face looking smoother, tighter, and rejuvenated. The microinfusion stimulates cellular renewal in the upper layer of the skin, while the solution is dispersed into the dermis to enhance results.
There is little or no down time after the procedure. There may be a little redness for less than a day, but no bruising or chance of a frozen muscle look. The only restriction after the procedure is that you can not wash your face for three to four hours. Patients get an immediate improvement on their faces, necks, or décolletage for several months. This procedure can be done every 3-4 months to get accumulative improvement.
