Beauty gurus and skincare addicts have been bustling about this advanced microneedling treatment available in select medical spas only. Frequently found at cosmetic dermatology offices in larger cities, such as New York, this treatment has grown into one of the most in-demand microneedling treatments on the market. Aquagold facial is a form of advanced medical facial treatment that simultaneously injects a custom solution infused with various skin enhancing ingredients including Botox, Peptides, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic acids. Each ingredient is said to serve a special purpose to get your skin glowing – Botox being an important factor that shrinks your pores after just one session. So what is this miracle treatment and how does it really work?
What is microneedling?
Before we get into the details that make the Aquagold facial so special, let’s talk about its base: microneedling. Microneedling is a popular treatment designed to refine your pores and tighten and smooth out your skin. It works through the use of a handheld mechanical device which is only available to medical professionals. This hand held device has several tiny needles that carefully puncture through the skin to cause controlled damage to the skin. This microscopic cutaneous damage induced by microneedling causes the body to produce extra collagen and elastin to repair itself, which tightens the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and evens out the texture of the skin.
How is Aquagold different from regular microneedling?
Just like regular microneedling, Aquagold uses a small hand held vial equipped with tiny needles on top that puncture through the skin to create microdamage to the skin. The primary difference between regular microneedling and the Aquagold facial is that the needles attached to the Aquagold handheld device are hollow, to allow the passage and injection of the Aquagold custom solution into the skin. This solution has several added benefits that are not included in a regular microneedling treatment.
In addition, the needles are made of pure gold, making the treatment particularly luxurious for those of you who love to treat themselves!
What is the Aquagold solution and what are its benefits?
The solution injected into the skin during Aquagold treatment contains Vitamin C, Peptides, Neurotoxin (typically Botox), and Hyaluronic Acid. Peptides are amino acids that make up proteins that are vital for your skin, while Vitamin C promotes collagen production and helps protect and heal your skin from sun damage caused by UV rays. The Botox serves the purpose of minimizing the size of your pores. And don’t worry – for this treatment, it is only injected into the skin, not the muscle, so it won’t freeze your face! Hyaluronic acid helps the skin maintain moisture giving you a hydrated and more youthful looking skin.
With all this in mind it is no surprise that the Aquagold facial is a trending topic amongst skin care lovers. Not only does it provide several benefits to your skin, but the luxury touch of tiny golden needles makes it a go-to treatment for anyone looking to treat themselves to a self care and beauty day. You can find more information on where to get this treatment by searching for medical spas in your area. Before you book, be sure to do your research on the establishment and the practitioner to confirm that they have the necessary qualifications to carry out the treatment.
