Give Your Skin Some AquaGold for the Holidays
- Posted on: Nov 30 2019
Everyone wants to look their best, and that’s especially true during all the holiday parties, dinners at neighbors’ homes, and family get-togethers that are coming up. So, why not come see us for an AquaGold treatment to get your skin ready to be beautiful and vibrant?
AquaGold is a combination of microneedling and mesotherapy all in one easy-to-take treatment without any downtime.
What is AquaGold?
OK, so you probably know about the microneedling part. Microneedling has been a popular procedure for over a decade to rebuild and improve the skin by way of microscopic skin punctures that trigger the body’s healing processes. And AquaGold uses microneedling with 20 gold-plated needles that guarantee your skin will readily accept the treatment.
But AquaGold does microneedling one better by adding mesotherapy. Mesotherapy…you probably haven’t heard of that. Mesotherapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that inserts active, medical grade ingredients into the mesoderm layer in the dermis of the skin. This is the area of the skin where collagen and elastin are produced. Collagen is responsible for providing the structural framework under the skin, while elastin keeps the skin supple and pliable.
Mesotherapy as it has been performed in the past involves injections of active ingredients such as plant extracts, enzymes, peptides, and vitamins to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. AquaGold doesn’t use separate injections — it delivers the mesotherapy through the microneedling needles. Smart.
How does AquaGold work?
AquaGold’s gold-plated needles penetrate the uppermost layer of the skin, creating micro-wounds that trigger a “wound healing” response in the body. Although the microscopic punctures heal in just a couple hours, the penetrations through the epidermis into the dermis make the body think there has been a wound. It responds by remodeling the existing collagen and elastin across the treated area. Plus, more importantly, it initiates production of new collagen and elastin to “heal” the wounds, even though they are fully healed long before the new collagen arrives.
The microneedles, which are only about the width of a hair, penetrate the skin to a depth of 600 microns. This is the perfect depth to deliver the mesotherapy vitamins, nanopeptides, stem cells, and other ingredients in the serum selected by the patient.
AquaGold improves your skin through its combination of microneedling and mesotherapy. You’ll start to see improvements in as little as two days, and they will continue to build with the new collagen and elastin for about three months.
