What Is Aqua Gold?
Aqua Gold is a microneedling treatment which uses thin hollow needles made with 24 karat gold to deliver ingredients such as Botox, hyaluronic acid, and PRP to the skin.
What Are the Benefits of Aqua Gold?
Microneedling of the skin can stimulate production of new collagen and elastin, the substances that give skin a firm, smooth texture. These substances are lost with age and sun damage.
Studies show that after a series of microneedling procedures, the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin are four-fold higher and that the increase is cumulative and durable.
Botox – When it is delivered with precision to the top layers of the skin, Botox does not affect the muscles as does typical Botox injection.
Micro-doses of Botox that are placed carefully in the top layer of skin have been shown to reduce pore size, superficial wrinkles, and redness from flushing. It can also reduce the amount of sebum produced, which may be beneficial in acne.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) filers – HA adds volume and helps the skin retain moisture at the deep level. Skin that has more volume and hydration looks and feels tighter, and fine lines and pore size are less prominent.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) – Blood cells have growth factors. PRP is a procedure that uses your own blood cells to create your own enriched serum. PRP in combination with microneedling has beneficial effects on the skin healing, collagen production, and can improve the appearance of melasma (dark patches on the skin, often caused by pregnancy or hormones).
What Can Aqua Gold Do for You?
Clients treated with Aqua Gold report their skin is more luminous, feels tighter, and has a more youthful appearance.
If you suffer from large pores, fine lines in the skin , lusterless skin, acne, redness or melasma, Aqua Gold treatment with Botox, HA, or PRP can provide improvement.
How Long Do Aqua Gold Treatments Last?
The duration of benefit varies from person to person and from one type of use to another. Ask us about your specific needs. In general, benefits last three-to-four months.
Is Aqua Gold Painful?
Aqua Gold uses very thin needles to reduce discomfort associated with injecting Botox or HA into the skin.
DC Derm Docs also offers numbing cream to apply prior to the procedure if you are concerned or nervous about needles.
