Among medical grade dermatology treatments microneedling is known to be one of the most demanded and popular procedures. In fact, there are different variations of microneedling, one of them being the Aquagold. The name speaks for itself. The technology makes use of 24 karat gold micro-needles to puncture the skin and  stimulate collagen production. The result is a rejuvenated and well hydrated skin. Apart from the mere puncturing technology, the procedure involves mesotherapy serum, containing hyaluronic acid, vitamins, peptides, and neurotoxins which enhance the level of skin hydration even more. The serum is injected into the skin through the hollow microneedles that penetrate the skin as the device is applied across the area of treatment with manual pressure.

Aesthetic medicine continues its technological advancements in many different directions and microneedling is not an exception; it has been developed to reach its utmost effectiveness. Microneedling technology has come to a point of such progression that it uses micro channels that are finer than a strand of human hair. These microchannels are placed in a glass vial and the useful ingredients directly penetrate the dermis, revitalizing the skin.

Through this minimally invasive and incredibly gentle micro-injection technique custom sera that contain powerful retinols, vitamins, growth factors, antioxidants, neurotoxins, hyaluronic acid, and more are delivered right into the skin without causing any discomfort or requiring downtime.

There are a number of medical grade skin tightening and skin care treatments that Dr. Schwarzburg offers at Skin Genity, his boutique medical spa located at the Upper East Side of Manhattan. A lighter option of microneedling is usually more preferred by the majority of the patients than the more intense treatments, like Secret RF radiofrequency microneedling, which is ideal for treating scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and aging skin. This is why the aquagold microneedling treatment is so popular especially among those in their twenties and thirties. However, it is not less favored by older patients as a maintenance treatment  in between laser and radiofrequency skin tightening treatments.

The Aquagold can be a perfect solution for you, depending what end goal you have in mind.

What Is the Aquagold Facial?

The Aquagold is a modern and advanced form of microneedling which offers a range of benefits superseding the regular microneedling. In fact, it is based on the technology utilized by the regular microneedling, however it also involves mesotherapy which doubles the effect of the treatment. As a result, we have the combination of microneedling benefits with the benefits offered by the mesotherapy solution. This offers additional hydration and care for the skin. The tool used for the Aquagold treatment is made of tiny gold plated needles. These are hollow needles that allow simultaneous injection of a custom mesotherapy solution made by Dr. Schwarzburg. The needles are tailored to treat the delicate skin of the face, neck, hands, and décolletage. A single session of Aguagold takes fifteen minutes, resulting in a more hydrated and youthful skin. The depth of penetration is adjustable – it can be as deep as 600 microns.

What Is Microneedling Treatment?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that boosts collagen and elastin production in the skin. It uses a high speed mechanical microneedling device which causes controlled damage to the dermis through small needles that penetrate through the skin. The micro injuries provoke the skin to repair itself, for which it has to produce more collagen and elastin. You have possibly seen or maybe even  home microneedling rollers  that work with the same principle. However, be aware that the home rollers do not puncture through your skin, hence they are not as effective.

With the Aquagold treatment, which is a form of microneedling, a mesotherapy solution is delivered to the skin with the help of particularly small-sized hollow needles. Thus, the Aquagold involves more than just needles piercing through your skin. Besides that, the needles used for the Aquagold treatment are gold plated which reduces the chances of infection. The size of the needles being small makes the treatment particularly ideal for the delicate skin on the face, neck, and décolletage, resulting in glowing and rejuvenated skin.

How Different Is Aquagold from Traditional Microneedling?

The Aquagold offers all the advantages that a traditional microneedling offers, plus the added benefit of the delivered solution which is enriched with peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid and neurotoxins. The solution is injected directly into the skin through the special Aquagold needles. The difference between these needles and the traditional ones, is that they are hollow and allow the injection of the solution right into the skin, while stimulating collagen and elastin production, which is the basic function of a traditional microneedling.

The traditional microneedling itself is an amazing therapy with great results. The thing is that it does not offer any additional vitamins, hyaluronic acids, or neurotoxins (the mentioned components are responsible for an overall improvement of  the quality and texture of the skin). Besides, the traditional procedure may leave dryness on the skin which is rare with the aquagold treatment. The Aquagold microneedling provides skin hydration throughout the whole procedure. It does not require any downtime and improves the overall appearance of the skin, making it smooth and hydrated, as well as with less visible pores and fine lines.

Does Aquagold Really Work?

The Aquagold does work and has shown great results in skin refreshment and rejuvenation through a skin boosting serum.

Besides, the Aquagold can be combined with a wide variety of treatments, like Aquagold Botox, dermal fillers, and more intense skin tightening treatments, such as Secret RF and Fraxel which result in skin rejuvenation, refreshment, and hydration, as well as reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, scarring or pigmentation. Such combinations are also good for results’ maintenance for a longer period of time. Aquagold before and after results can be outstanding provided the right serum has been used for the case. Feel free to go over the treatment reviews and comments at the clinics in New York and surrounding areas to familiarize yourself with more details on the procedure.

Is Aquagold FDA-Approved?

The Aquagold fine touch is approved by FDA. Yet, it should be performed by sufficiently trained medical professionals only for skin rejuvenation purposes on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. The best option is to have this advanced microneedling treatment administered to you by a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. This recommendation is emphasized as the risk of getting injuries or unwanted side effects will be high if the procedure is performed by an unqualified specialist.

Does Aquagold Require Any Downtime?

Being minimally invasive the Aquagold treatment neither requires downtime nor poses any restrictions following the procedure. Before starting the procedure a topical numbing cream that contains lidocaine is applied to the area of treatments. This reduces the possible discomfort and painful sensations that the patient could experience during the session. The patients can easily go back to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. The only requirement is to keep the treatment area clean and make-up free for 24 hours after the treatment. After the procedure Dr. Schwarzburg provides his patients with a cream that should be applied to the area of treatment for additional hydration and skin care. No limitations are associated with the Aqua gold facial either before or after the treatment. As mentioned earlier, you can readily resume your normal activities right after your Aquagold session.

How Long Does the Aquagold Treatment Take?

Aquagold microneedling treatment serves such purposes as pore refining, fine line reduction, improvement of overall skin texture and hydration. The effect gained by the treatment can last for up to six months. It is better, though, to view the treatment as one that should be regularly repeated for good skin quality maintenance instead of focusing on the longevity of the results. If you decide to incorporate the treatment into your regular skin care routine and have 4-6 appointments a year, your results will last longer compared to those of a single try out procedure. The Aquagold treatment can be combined with other skin tightening procedures such as Secret RF and Fraxel laser, as well as Botox, dermal fillers, and more. These will complement the results of the procedure, provide a longer lasting skin care, helping to maintain the quality of your skin well beyond an indefinite six month time period.

What Is an Aquagold Facial? What Is Microinfusion?

The Aquagold Facial makes use of the advantages offered by the fine touch’s micro infusion delivery system, the latter being a customizable microneedling treatment. The Aquagold microneedling treatment presents a range of  benefits that supersede the ones presented by a regular microneedling procedure; it uses hollow ends of tiny gold plated needles to safely deliver vitamins, neurotoxins, hyaluronic acids, peptides, and growth factors into the skin. The special needles are attached to the microneedling delivery device. While regular microneedling stimulates collagen production through the micro-injuries created by the needle punctures, the Aquagold adds to it the benefits of a nourishing serum infused into the skin. The result is a more hydrated, smoother skin with smaller pores and improved texture, as well as reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

Can Dermal Fillers Be Infused with Aquagold?

A number of different ingredients can be injected into the skin through Aquagold microneedling. Those ingredients include peptides, vitamins, growth factors, neurotoxins, and hyaluronic acid.  Dr. Schwarzburg will readily develop a custom treatment plan for you, according to your unique needs, skin type and desires.

The fine hollow needles of the Aquagold treatment can be used to deliver dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero into the skin. These fillers will contribute to the improvement of the skin appearance and elimination of fine lines and wrinkles in the area of  treatment.

The microchannels can be used to release these dermal fillers into the skin, giving an overall volume and smoothness to the skin. However, if you want to observe a more dramatic change in the volume of certain areas in your face, like under the eyes and the cheeks, the Aquagold facial might not be the best solution you’re looking for. You may have considered the option of microneedling tear troughs, but you need to know that even though this combination is possible it won’t drastically improve your facial volume. For notable volumization you might need a full dermal filler injection.

How Much Does Aquagold Facial Cost?

The Aquagold micro infusion facial cost depends on a number of factors, such as the initial condition of your skin, the ingredients contained in the injected serum and the general aesthetic expectations that you have. On average the price may vary from $700 to $900 per session. The price is also conditioned by the number of sessions you want to purchase and the infusion you choose to have injected. The results of an Aquagold microneedling are better than those of a regular one because of the special serum that is incorporated into the treatment. For this reason the price for Aquagold is higher than that of the traditional microneedling treatment.
