AQUAGOLD® is a microneedling device that uses 24K gold microneedles to rejuvenate your skin. This minimally invasive treatment can be completed in about 20 minutes and has beautiful results.
You may be a good candidate for microneedling with AQUAGOLD® if you want to address:
- Redness and flushing
- Dark spots
- Crepey wrinkles
- Uneven skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Oily skin
AQUAGOLD® microneedling is performed with a microneedling device that has a glass vial attached directly to hollow microneedles. The contents of the vial may include Botox, hyaluronic acid, stem cell growth factors, lightening agents or a combination of these, customized to the specific needs of your skin. As microneedling is performed, the contents of the vial are evenly infused in tiny quantities, directly into the area of skin treated, for an overall improvement of pore size, redness, oiliness, crepey lines, etc. The treatment is minimally invasive. It works by creating tiny needle pricks in the surface of the skin. The needles are about the thickness of a strand of hair, and the channels created in the skin are very fine and small. These tiny needle punctures cause the skin to produce more collagen in the weeks following treatment. As you may know, collagen is the foundation of supple, smooth, and youthful skin!
You may feel a little discomfort, but most people are able to tolerate the treatment without a problem. Dr. Diwan can usually complete the treatment in 20 minutes.
The treated areas of your face will be pink or red (like a mild sunburn) for a day or two. Skin care products or make up should be avoided for 24 hours after your treatment. You may start to see the initial results in 48 hours. The results will only get better over time as the effects of the infusions become apparent over the next two weeks, and new collagen and elastin form over the next few months.
