What is Micro-Needling and AquaGold? And What Are The Benefits?
While micro-needling may sound like a means of torture, I assure you this non-invasive procedure is anything but. Small, ultra-fine needles are introduced into the skin creating small punctures which help stimulate collagen and elastin production, even skin texture, and reduce appearance of acne scars. Micro-needling makes your skin super absorbant to serums, vitamins, and other topicals so lather yourself after each treatment. Micro-needling can be done at home with a derma-roller several times per week. Keep in mind, at-home devices need to be replaced every 2-3 months to help prevent infection.
AquaGold takes micro-needling one step further. The device is composed of 20 24-carat-gold-plated, stainless steel microneedles that are 0.6 mm long and 0.13mm wide. Most at-home devices needles are only 0.2mm in length. AquaGold’s structure and composition helps maximize structural integrity promoting collagen production, evens skin tone and texture, reduces pore size, and minimizing appearance of acne scars. The device also infuses a cocktail of vitamins, neurotoxins, fillers customized to your specific needs. The results take approximately 2 weeks to take effect, but can last for 5-6 months! AquaGold can be repeated every 3 months for the best results.
