What is Aquagold® Fine touch micro-needling?
Aquagold® Fine Touch is a micro-channelling technique used for skin rejuvenation. This innovative technology utilizes 20 stainless steel needles plated with 24-carat gold that are thinner than a human hair. This allows the device to evenly distribute a blend of hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin. This micro-channelling technique is also known to stimulate new collagen production to further smooth and plump the skin. Treatment with Aquagold® Fine Touch can give you a glowing, more youthful complexion.
What are the benefits of Aquagold® Fine touch micro-needling?
The Aquagold® Fine touch microchannel delivery system can enhance and supplement nearly any facial treatment. Skin serums, acne therapies and custom facials are all brought beneath the surface of the skin where they can work most effectively. This revolutionary approach, recently popularized by Kim Kardashian West’s glowing turn at the 2018 Met Gala in NYC, is great for shrinking pores, reducing acne scarring and micro-pigmentation.
What areas of the skin can Aquagold® Fine touch treat?
The Aquagold® Fine Touch system is recommended for the following complexion concerns:
- Acne scars
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkle
- Uneven skin tone
- Regenerates and improves skin texture
- Shrinks large pores
- Safe to use around the eyes upper eyelid area
- Painless treatment with minimal redness
How is Aquagold® Fine touch different from other microneedle devices?
The purpose of Aquagold® fine touch is to microchannel and deliver treatments directly to the skin. The purpose of other common microneedle devices is to puncture the skin for stimulation allowing the skin to use self-healing to rejuvenate itself.
Is the Aquagold® Fine touch treatment painful?
There is little or no discomfort or visible side effects. The Aquagold® Fine touch device contains a grouping of tiny, hollow needles that are thinner than a strand of human hair, and it’s applied perpendicular fashion to the skin. Because of the small needles and the application angle, clients experience very minimal swelling or redness, and recovery is quick. There is no need to numb the skin.
What kind of results can I expect?
Microneedling is best used for patients who are looking for a softer, more youthful appearance but don’t require dramatic changes. The Aquagold® fine touch 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 micro-needling 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.
