26 Jun How AquaGold Took Microneedling to the Next Level
Microneedling began 125 years ago and was first designed as a means of treating war veterans. At RefinedMD, microneedling has long been a preferred treatment for many clients, and it’s the original collagen induction therapy. Traditional microneedling certainly advanced over the years, and today’s microneedling uses very different tools than those used at the turn of the last century. However, compared to other procedures, there hasn’t been a lot of big changes in microneedling since circa 1900. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right? Except there’s a newer treatment that seriously upgraded microneedling—and it’s time you try it.
The basic concept is still there. There’s just a lot more to it. Traditional microneedling works by creating tiny, controlled micro-channels in the skin (also called micro-trauma). A handheld device is used, equipped with very small needles, to prick the skin. The needles are so small that it feels like microdermabrasion and is not painful at all. This results in the body synthesizing collagen and elastin to kick-start the healing process. In many cases, clients have booked a facial with their microneedling to take advantage of the temporary “channels” left by microneedling. This allows topicals to get even deeper into the skin and is a smart move. But what if you could do even more? Enter AquaGold.
A Treatment Worth Its Weight
AquaGold features needles made of 24k gold that can go deeper than any other microneedling treatment available. Still, the “feel” of the treatment is the same and is not painful. It’s the most advanced form of microneedling available, combining the traditional practice with mesotherapy. Not only are these needles solid gold, they are also hollow. This lets them deliver hand-selected topicals directly into the skin rather than just on the skin’s surface. It takes the idea of immediately applying topicals after regular microneedling to a totally new level, and the products you can add to AquaGold are much stronger. For example, hyaluronic acid (HA) is a popular additive.
Other common ingredients include Vitamin C and peptides. This causes an immediate glow to the skin so you leave with a look that is refreshed and revitalized. That usually isn’t the case with most standard microneedling sessions, in which you have to wait a few weeks to start seeing results. With AquaGold, you get immediate gratification with skin that is rejuvenated and just keeps getting better following your treatment. Plus, with AquaGold you can often go months between sessions whereas with regular microneedling a monthly treatment plan is usually recommended.
A Two-in-One Solution
Why just get microneedling when you can experience the upgraded version? AquaGold can be used to tighten skin, decrease brown spots and fine lines, improve laxity and texture, and generally help you turn back the clock. There is minimal aftercare and absolutely no downtime. However, just like with regular microneedling, skin may be pink for a bit following the treatment. It is recommended that you give yourself at least three days between AquaGold and any major event to allow for any lingering redness to subside.
On average, results from AquaGold last around six months, making it easy to fit into busy schedules. The exact additives for your treatment will be discussed prior to the procedure. You can work on better hydration, shrinking pore appearance, overall skin improvement, removal of acne scarring or sun damage, and much more. AquaGold can be a standalone anti-aging solution or paired with other options like Botox and dermal fillers for optimal results. People love microneedling, including AquaGold, because it works naturally with your body from the inside out. Ultimately, it’s a collagen induction therapy that has proven itself over the decades and is still in high demand today.
