What is an Aquagold Facial Treatment?
Aquagold is a medical grade treatment and alternate to more invasive skin treatments. We use the Aquagold fine touch microchannel device to deliver small droplets of a custom mixed solution into the skin. This method allows for greater absorption of the active ingredients. The microchannel tool allows for customized treatments for individual patients in order to correct issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, decreased skin elasticity and loss of facial volume. During each consultation, Tatjana will discuss concerns with patients to identify their exact needs and customize the solution used for their session. Our most popular solutions include:
Cytocare 516 – A peptide that contains hyaluronic acid, it is used for plumping and to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid binds to water molecules within the skin, restoring hydration by moisturizing from the inside while preventing further damage from oxidative stress. Cytocare 516 revives dehydrated, dull facial skin resulting in skin that looks more supple, smoother, and more youthful.
Botox – Used to decrease pore size, reduce redness, and improve both acne and rosacea.
When used in this more dilute and superficial dose, the result is that skin appears smoother, with improved skin tone. Botox is the only recognized treatment that has an actual physical effect on pore size.
Juvederm – Used to provide extra hyaluronic acid, Juvederm adds volume to the facial tissue. Juvederm holds water and moisturizes, it is a gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas resulting in improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness.
CBD Oil – Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, using CBD oil on the skin can reduce puffiness, swelling, and even soreness. CBD also has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, this helps soothe irritated, itchy, and red skin. Many people report it can further provide pain relief for facial soreness during skin condition flare-ups
Vitamin B12 – Essential for healthy hair, skin, and nails, Vitamin B12 helps to regulate the production of pigment in the skin, helping to prevent dark spots and pigmentation. Vitamin B12 also assists the body with the metabolism of protein which, in turn, promotes the growth of healthy skin cells and helps to repair damaged skin.
About the Aquagold Procedure
There is virtually no pain connected with this procedure! Patients are numbed beforehand to ensure maximum comfort. The needling device is made up of 24 karat gold plated needles that are smaller than the size of a hair follicle. Through these needles the solution is delivered directly into a deeper dermis which allows for optimal absorption. The needles are pressed into the skin in an overlapping pattern, to deliver the solution evenly across the chosen area.
