Microneedling is one of the most widely known and commonly used medical grade dermatology treatments. Amongst several forms of microneedling, aquagold is one of them and involves the use of 24 karat gold micro-needles that puncture the skin causing a stimulation of collagen production, leaving you with a rejuvenated and more hydrated skin. Furthermore the treatment involves the use of a mesotherapy serum, which is made up of non crosslinked hyaluronic acid, vitamins, peptides, and neurotoxin, which adds an additional boost to the hydration and youthfulness of your skin. The serum is injected through the hollow microneedles when they penetrate the skin as the device is applied across the skin with manual pressure.

As medical and technological advances continue to be made, microneedling has been developed to the point of maximal effectiveness. The micro channels integrated into a glass vial are so small that they are finer than a strand of human hair, and the ingredients that they deliver are able to directly revitalize the dermis.

Through this minimally invasive and incredibly gentle micro-injection technique, custom serums containing powerful retinols, vitamins, growth factors, antioxidants, neurotoxins, hyaluronic acid, and more, can be delivered directly into your skin without any downtime or discomfort.

While Dr. Schwarzburg offers numerous medical grade skin tightening and skin care treatments at Skinly Aesthetics, his boutique medical spa on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, many patients prefer a lighter option over one of the more intense microneedling treatments, such as Secret RF radiofrequency microneedling, that is ideal for scars, fine, lines, wrinkles, and aging skin. This is why the aquagold microneedling treatment has become so popular, particularly amongst patients in their twenties and thirties, as well as older patients for maintenance in between laser and radiofrequency skin tightening treatments.

Depending on your overall goals, Aquagold will be the perfect solution for you.

What is Aquagold facial?

Aquagold is an incredibly advanced form of microneedling that offers more than the penetration that regular microneedling has to offer. Because it involves mesotherapy along with the general base of microneedling, the aquagold microneedling tool allows for a double treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling with the benefits of mesotherapy solution for added hydration and skin care. The tiny gold plated needles that make up the microneedling tool are hollow, allowing for simultaneous injection of a custom mesotherapy solution made by Dr. Schwarzburg. The needles are designed specifically to treat the delicate skin of the face, neck, hands, and décolletage in fifteen minute sessions, leaving your skin more hydrated and youthful. The depth of the needles can be adjusted and may reach up to 600 microns deep.

What is Microneedling Treatment?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that involves the use of very small needles to penetrate through the skin using a mechanical microneedling device at a high speed to cause controlled damage to the dermis, causing your body to produce collagen and elastin in an effort to repair the skin. You may be familiar with home microneedling rollers that are based on the same principle, but don’t actually puncture through your skin making them less effective.

The Aquagold treatment is a form of microneedling, but rather than just needles piercing through your skin, the needles are particularly small in size and hollow to allow the delivery of the mesotherapy solution into the skin, and additionally gold plated for reduced chances of infection. The small size of the needles make this treatment particularly ideal for the delicate skin on the face, neck, and décolletage, leaving it with glowing rejuvenating results.

How does Aquagold differ from traditional microneedling?

Aquagold differs from traditional microneedling because aside from all the functions that it shares with traditional microneedling, it has the added benefit of delivering a solution containing peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid and neurotoxin directly into the skin through the needles. The needles used for aquagold are hollow, allowing them to inject this solution while simultaneously offering all the collagen and elastin boosting functions that are offered by traditional microneedling.

While microneedling alone already offers amazing results, it does not come with any additional vitamins, hyaluronic acids, or neurotoxins that will boost the overall quality of your skin and its texture. After a traditional microneedling session, you may experience dry skin, which is less common with the aquagold treatment as it hydrates your skin throughout the procedure. The Aquagold procedure involves no downtime and will leave you with smoother, more hydrated skin, with a reduced pore size and appearance of fine lines.

Does Aquagold Really Work?

Aquagold is a treatment that is particularly designed to boost collagen and elastin production, reduce scars and fine lines, improve the texture of your skin and create an overall younger, more hydrated looking skin.

Yes, Aquagold really works, if your goal is to refresh your skin and infuse it with a skin boosting serum.

In addition, Aquagold can be combined with an array of treatments including Aquagold Botox, dermal fillers, and more intense skin tightening treatments such as Secret RF and Fraxel, to rejuvenate, refresh, and hydrate the skin, to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, decrease the size of your pores, and get rid of scarring or pigmentation and maintain the results for a longer amount of time. Aquagold is also often paired with other skin care treatments, such as the carbon laser treatment, to enhance the results. Aquagold before and after results can be significant if the proper serum is used to benefit your particular case. For more information you can also look into aquagold reviews and aquagold treatment near me to see the reviews and comments on the treatment at the clinics in New York and surrounding areas.

Is Aquagold FDA-Approved?

Aquagold fine touch is FDA approved and is to be used only by medically trained professionals for the use of skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. This advanced microneedling treatment should only be administered by board certified plastic surgeons or dermatologists, as it is only provided to medical professionals. If used by someone who is unqualified, there is a chance of injury or unwanted side effects.

Is there any downtime associated with Aquagold?

The Aquagold treatment is a minimally invasive treatment that involves no downtime or restrictions after the procedure. While a topical numbing cream containing lidocaine is applied on the treatment area prior to the procedure to alleviate any pain or discomfort during the administration of the treatment, patients can continue with their regular daily routine immediately after the treatment as long as they keep the treatment area clean, avoiding makeup and sunscreen for 24 hours post treatment. After the treatment, Dr. Schwarzburg will provide his patients with a cream that can be applied to the treatment area for additional hydration and skin care. There are no restrictions involved in the Aqua gold facial either before or after the treatment, as it is minimally invasive, allowing you to resume normal activities immediately after your appointment.

How long does Aquagold last?

Aquagold microneedling treatment is a treatment that refines your pores, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and improves the overall texture of your skin while providing hydration. While the results may last up to six months, it is better not to view the treatment in terms of the longevity of its results, rather to view it as a treatment used periodically to maintain the amazing quality of your skin. If you incorporate this treatment into your regular skin care routine, making it a 4-6 times a year treatment, the results can last you a much longer time, than a one time experimental procedure. In combination with other skin tightening procedures such as Secret RF and Fraxel laser, as well as Botox, dermal fillers, and more, the Aquagold microneedling treatment can contribute to a long lasting skin care treatment that will maintain the quality of your skin well over an indefinite six month time period.

What is an Aquagold Facial? What is microinfusion?

An Aquagold Facial is a customizable Aquagold microneedling treatment that utilizes the advantages of the fine touch’s micro infusion delivery system. Because the Aquagold microneedling treatment involves more than regular microneedling, allowing the safe delivery of vitamins, neurotoxins, hyaluronic acids, peptides, and growth factors into the skin, through the hollow ends of the tiny gold plated needles attached to the microneedling delivery device, the treatment offers not only enhanced collagen stimulation, but the added benefit of a nourishing serum for your skin. This results in greater skin hydration, smoother texture, smaller pore size, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and an increase in collagen production.

Can dermal fillers be infused with Aquagold?

Aquagold microneedling can be infused with a variety of ingredients including peptides, vitamins, growth factors, neurotoxins, and hyaluronic acid. Depending on your particular skin type, Dr. Schwarzburg can create a custom solution that will meet your individual needs. In regards to dermal fillers being infused with Aquagold, products such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero may be delivered through the fine needles involved in the Aquagold treatment to help improve and eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the treatment area. Because these dermal fillers will be delivered to the skin through microchannels, they will improve the overall volume and smoothness of the skin. If your goal is to correct more dramatic volume loss under the eyes and cheeks, the Aquagold facial will likely not give you the results that you are looking for. You have looked into microneedling tear troughs, and though it is possible, it will give you little success in volume gain. Instead, you should opt for a full on dermal filler injection.

How much is Aquagold facial?

The micro infusion facial cost of the Aquagold treatment depends on a variety of factors including the original state of your skin, the ingredients infused in the serum, and your overall aesthetic goals with the treatment. On average the cost will range $700 – 900 per treatment, but again, this may vary depending on the number of treatments purchased, and more than anything, the infusion of the treatment used. Because the treatment involves a special serum and has superior results compared to regular microneedling, the Aqua gold facial cost will be higher than the original form of microneedling.

Where can I get Aquagold fine touch?

If you are planning on getting an Aquagold fine touch before and after treatment, the best place to go for optimal results is a board certified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Schwarzburg, who will know exactly what ingredients and serum infusions would match your skin and desired results. The Aquagold fine touch treatment is exclusively offered by doctors and professional practitioners and should never be administered by an unqualified individual.

You can look up aquagold near me where you can find where the microinfusion facial is offered in your area.

Can Aestheticians use Aquagold Treatment?

Because microneedling treatments involve the needles penetrating deep into the dermis, the Aquagold treatment may only be administered by certified medical professionals that are licensed to administer the treatment in a safe and effective manner. Aside from the microneedling aspect of the treatment, the serum which is infused into the skin often requires extensive medical knowledge to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. When it comes to the administration of neurotoxins, hyaluronic acids, and other ingredients often prevalent in the treatment, it is important for the person administering the treatment to be a board certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.
