How Long Does an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch Treatment Last?
If you struggle with skin damage or wrinkles, it may be time to find a new skin care treatment. Body+Beauty Lab is excited to offer AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch, a revolutionary way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. This technology combines microneedling with facial injections for wrinkles such as BOTOX® to create stunning outcomes. You may have heard of AQUAGOLD before, which is most known for its gold-plated, stainless steel needles. But what is AQUAGOLD Fine Touch, and how does it work?
The trained estheticians at Body+Beauty Lab use AQUAGOLD to create personalized results for patients with issues such as fine lines and age spots. In addition to being gold-plated, the needles are actually smaller in diameter than a strand of hair for minimal discomfort and skin irritation. At our facility, we proudly offer this innovative treatment to men and women of all ages. To learn more, schedule a private consultation at our medical spa in Philadelphia, PA.
What is AQUAGOLD Fine Touch?
So, what is AQUAGOLD Fine Touch? AQUAGOLD uses similar technology to traditional microneedling. This device works by using very fine needles to penetrate the superficial layers of the skin. In this way, we can deliver products such as dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers along with other ingredients in a controlled manner. Nutrient-rich serums, vitamins, and amino acids are all considered based on your individual skin concerns. The gold-plated needles can also reduce side effects such as redness and inflammation following the procedure.
Although AQUAGOLD has been compared to microneedling, this technology uses an advanced microinjection system to deliver results without the discomfort that is associated with microneedling. AQUAGOLD is most often used on the face and neck, although some patients benefit from microinjections on their chest and hands. Body+Beauty Lab finds that this is a safe and effective way to address the most common signs of aging and where wrinkles and discolorations are harder to treat.
Who should get this treatment?
Based on your personal needs and goals, the professionals at Body+Beauty Lab can recommend dermal fillers and face injections, serums, or a combination of products to help you attain your desired look. Ideal candidates for AQUAGOLD usually suffer from wrinkles, acne scars, dryness, or age spots but do not have active acne or open wounds near the injection sites. Your injector will also make sure you are not pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of your appointment. We suggest avoiding abrasive scrubs, exfoliating products, or chemical peels at least a few days before treatment to prevent irritation or discomfort.
When considering AQUAGOLD and facial injections for wrinkles, it is important to understand the benefits of treatment and what it can do for you. Body+Beauty Lab usually recommends AQUAGOLD if your goals include one or more of the following:
Smoothing your skin
Reducing existing scars
Shrinking enlarged pores
Improving your overall complexion
Treatment techniques and what to expect
On the day of your procedure, Body+Beauty Lab will make sure your face is free from cosmetics or other products beforehand. We will then apply a special numbing cream to the treatment sites. The device is then filled with the dermal fillers and face injections chosen during your consultation. Using the AQUAGOLD Fine Touch microinjection system, we apply the treatment evenly throughout the face for consistent delivery. Afterward, we can give you a cold compress to soothe the skin and minimize any slight swelling of the area. Patients are then free to resume their day as normal in Philadelphia, PA.
If you are wondering about the longevity of your results, this is based on the injections chosen during the consultation period. Even though the outcome is long-lasting, it is not permanent. Your injector will let you know when to come back for touch-up treatments and help you schedule these appointments. Generally, patients can expect wrinkle relaxers to last 3 – 4 months while dermal fillers stay in effect for up to one year or more. To achieve the most optimal results, you may be encouraged to receive three AQUAGOLD treatments spaced at 4 – 6 weeks apart. Either way, you will notice a more vibrant appearance in the weeks following your session at Body+Beauty Lab.
