Microneedling

Microneedling

Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) is generally a safe and effective procedure that can improve the appearance of the skin. It may reduce wrinkles, diminish scarring, and tighten or rejuvenate loose or aging skin. We offer two microneedling systems at GFaceMD.

  • Aquagold
  • SkinStylus

What Is Aquagold?

The Aquagold microneedling system is one of the newest innovations in aesthetic medicine. Through painless delivery of a customized cocktail of rejuvenative, bioactive ingredients directly to the dermo-epidermal junction of the skin, the skin appears smoother, brighter, and plumper.

The single-use device is composed of 20 24-carat gold-plated stainless steel microneedles that are 600 micrometers long and 130 micrometers wide. This structure maximizes structural integrity while minimizing adverse reactions.

This treatment can be performed on the face and chest, and there is zero downtime, pain, bleeding, and bruising!

Benefits include but are not limited to (you can have these in list format): skin tightening, brightening, scar softening and diminishing, diminution of pore size, stimulation of collagen production, a “filtered appearance,” and more.

This unique microneedling system targets fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, unwanted pigmentation, uneven texture/tone, and enlarged pores.

The procedure has no downtime and typically lasts 30 minutes. Results are immediate and also develop over weeks to months.

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. We recommend starting with three treatments for collagen induction, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction, an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended.
