Aquagold Microchanneling Q & A


Some people stay away from skin treatments because they don’t like needles, or don’t want to look like they’ve had work done. Now there’s Aquagold® Fine Touch™, a new microchanneling treatment to improve damaged skin with no bruising or down time. Aquagold is a revolutionary microneedling device that contains 24 karat needles, each of which is smaller than a hair follicle. This device delivers products such as dermal fillers, muscle relaxants, retinol, and antioxidants directly into the skin.

Applying anti-aging products directly under the skin allows them to be absorbed much more effectively and with a much longer duration of effectiveness because these products do not have to bypass the natural protective barrier of the skin. Deeper penetration of these active ingredients results in a more healthy and vibrant appearance of the skin. Aquagold is a versatile tool for treating a number of cosmetic facial issues such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Decreased skin elasticity
  • Loss of facial volume

 

How It Works

Depending on a patient’s concerns and desired results, we are able to fully customize the solution to be applied with the microchannel device.

Because the Aquagold treatment offers buildable results, it works well with other treatments. Used in conjunction with deeper dermal filler injections or after a laser treatment, Aquagold can enhance results. It is also an ideal addition to surgical facial rejuvenation, such as facelift surgery, and can help maintain results.

Best Candidates

Aquagold is best used for patients who are looking for a softer, more youthful appearance, but do not require dramatic changes. Microchanneling treats the superficial layers of the skin to provide a moderate, though noticeable, improvement in skin texture, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and increase in collagen production.

While microchanneling is not a replacement for injectable treatments, the small size allows for treating tighter spaces, and the small volume of solution that is applied helps to ensure an even, natural result. It can be effectively used on the face, neck, and décolletage.

Procedure

The procedure is virtually pain free. Unlike many dermal fillers injections, the treatment does not require an anesthetic. The skin of the face is cleansed, and the chosen ingredients are placed in the sterile tube of Aquagold device. It is then pressed into the skin in an overlapping pattern. For the first time drugs and products are being delivered into the skin, not on it or underneath it. The device works with 20 tiny, precisely spaced needles delivering product into the skin at the ideal depth of 600 microns. The hollow needles hold the product. The needles sit on a platform, and are smaller than a human hair. The needles are inserted into the skin and then pulled back out, leaving the product behind. This creates a soft, natural-looking result, leaving the face looking smoother, tighter, and rejuvenated. The micro needles stimulate cellular renewal in the upper layer of the skin through gentle needling, while the solution is dispersed into the dermis to enhance results.

This is a quick and simple treatment that is performed in the office. Patients desiring PRP or PPP in the solution will need to have their blood drawn and spun, bringing the appointment length to one hour.
