BEFORE THE TREATMENT
1. What is an AQUAGOLD Facial®?
AQUAGOLD ® fine touch ™ is a patented gold-plated micro-injection system that painlessly delivers custom solutions into the skin at the ideal 600 micron depth micro needles to reach the dermis.
2. Am I a good candidate for this treatment? / Will this treatment work for me?
The AquaGold Facial® 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.
3. How is the AQUAGOLD Facial® treatment performed
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. 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.
4. How many sessions will I need to see results?
You will see results after just one session. We recommend receiving the treatment every 3-4 months to get accumulative improvement.
5. How often/far apart should the treatments be?
We recommend spacing your treatments 4-6 weeks apart.
DURING THE TREATMENT
1. How long does a treatment session last?
Each session lasts approximately 20 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
2. What does the treatment feel like/Will it be painful?
The procedure is virtually pain free. Unlike many other injections, this treatment does not require an anesthetic.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
1. How will my skin feel after my treatment?
There is little or no down time after the procedure. There may be a little redness for 1-2 days, but no bruising or chance of a frozen muscle look. The only restriction after the procedure is that you can’t wash your face for three to four hours. Patients get an immediate improvement on their faces, necks, or décolletage for several months. This procedure can be done every 3-4 months to get accumulative improvement.
