Microneedling is one of the most popular and highly demanded medical grade dermatology treatments. In fact, there are several different types of microneedling, aquagold being one of them. It uses 24 karat gold micro-needles that puncture the skin, thus stimulating collagen production, as a result of which you are left with a rejuvenated and more hydrated skin. Moreover, the skin actually gets additional hydration and youthfulness due to the use of a mesotherapy serum that involves hyaluronic acid, vitamins, peptides, and neurotoxin. As the device is applied across the skin with manual pressure, hollow microneedles penetrate the skin through which the serum is injected into the skin.

Alongside the continual medical and technological advancements microneedling has also been developed to reach its utmost effectiveness. The technology of microneedling has been perfected to the point of using micro channels that are finer than a strand of human hair. These microchannels are integrated into a glass vial and the deliverable ingredients have the capacity to directly revitalize the dermis.

This minimally invasive and incredibly gentle micro-injection technique makes it possible to deliver the custom sera that contain powerful retinols, vitamins, growth factors, antioxidants, neurotoxins, hyaluronic acid, and more, right into the skin, causing no discomfort and requiring no downtime.

Dr. Schwarzburg offers a number of medical grade skin tightening and skin care treatments at Miracle Face,  his boutique medical spa – located at the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The majority of the patients give preference to a lighter option over the more intense microneedling treatments, such as Secret RF radiofrequency microneedling  (the latter works perfectly to treat scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and aging skin). This is the reason the aquagold microneedling treatment has gained such popularity, especially among those in their twenties and thirties, but also for older patients requiring maintenance in between laser and radiofrequency skin tightening treatments. Based on the end goal you have in mind, Aquagold can be a perfect solution for you.

What Is Microneedling Treatment?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a high speed mechanical microneedling device with very small needles penetrating through the skin and causing controlled damage to the dermis. As a result, the body is made to produce collagen and elastin in an effort to repair the skin. You may have seen or used home microneedling rollers that work with the same principle. The home rollers, however, do not puncture through your skin which makes them less effective.

The Aquagold treatment is a form of microneedling, but rather than just needles piercing through your skin, the particularly small-sized hollow needles allow the delivery of the mesotherapy solution into the skin. Besides, the needles are additionally gold plated to reduce the 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 and rejuvenating results.

How Different Is Aquagold from Traditional Microneedling?

Aquagold has all the functions that a traditional microneedling offers with the added benefit of delivering a solution with peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid and neurotoxin directly into the skin through the needles. The aquagold needles are different from traditional microneedling needles as they are hollow and make it possible to inject this solution into the skin while simultaneously boosting collagen and elastin that is basically done by traditional microneedling.

Microneedling itself offers amazing results. However, it does not come with any additional vitamins, hyaluronic acids, or neurotoxins that are responsible for improving the overall quality of the skin and its texture. A traditional microneedling session may leave you with dryness on the skin, which is rare with the aquagold treatment. The latter hydrates the skin throughout the whole procedure. The Aquagold procedure does not require any downtime and results in a smoother and more hydrated skin, reducing the pore size and making fine lines less visible.

Does Aquagold Really Work?

The Aquagold procedure is specifically developed to stimulate collagen and elastin production, reduce the appearance of scars and fine lines, better the skin texture and leave you with an overall younger and more hydrated looking skin. If a skin rejuvenation and refreshment treatment with neither downtime, nor excessive aftercare or precaution is what you’re looking for, then the Aquagold facial is for you. True, Aquagold does work and proves to be effective if you desire to refresh your skin and infuse it with a skin boosting serum.

Moreover, Aquagold can actually be paired with a number of treatments, like Aquagold Botox, dermal fillers, and more intense skin tightening treatments such as Secret RF and Fraxel which result in skin rejuvenation, refreshment, and hydration, as well as elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of pore size, scarring or pigmentation and maintenance of the results for a longer period of time. Aquagold before and after results can be truly eye-striking if the right serum for the particular case has been used. For further details you could go over the reviews and comments on the treatment at the clinics in New York and surrounding areas.

Is Aquagold FDA-Approved?

In the hands of an unqualified person, the risk of getting injuries or unwanted side effects is high.

Does Aquagold Require Any Downtime?

The Aquagold treatment is a minimally invasive procedure with no recovery time or any restrictions after the procedure. Prior to the procedure the treatment area is rubbed with a topical numbing cream containing lidocaine in order to keep the patient from any possible discomfort and pain in the course of the treatment. Patients are free to resume their daily activities right after the procedure provided they keep the treatment area clean, refraining from makeup and sunscreen for 24 hours after the treatment. Once the procedure is over Dr. Schwarzburg gives the patients a cream that should be placed on the treatment area to provide additional hydration and skin care. There are no limitations associated with the Aqua gold facial either before or after the treatment; the procedure being minimally invasive, allows you to go back to your normal activities right after the appointment.

How Long Does the Aquagold Treatment Take?

Aquagold microneedling treatment is a pore refining procedure that reduces fine lines, perfects the overall texture of your skin and provides hydration. The results can last for up to six months. However, it is advised not to focus on the longevity of the results, but rather view the treatment as one to be periodically repeated in order to maintain a nice skin quality. In case the treatment is incorporated into your regular skin care routine, with an annual frequency of 4-6 times, the results will last you longer than a single try out procedure. It can be combined with other skin tightening procedures such as Secret RF and Fraxel laser, as well as Botox, dermal fillers, and more, thus complementing the results of the mentioned procedure by giving a longer lasting skin care and maintaining the quality of your skin well over an indefinite six month time period.

What Is an Aquagold Facial? What Is Microinfusion?

The Aquagold Facial utilizes the advantages of the fine touch’s micro infusion delivery system; it is a customizable Aquagold microneedling treatment. The Aquagold microneedling treatment offers more than a regular microneedling does; using the hollow ends of the tiny gold plated needles attached to the microneedling delivery device it allows safe delivery of vitamins, neurotoxins, hyaluronic acids, peptides, and growth factors into the skin. Thus, apart from resulting in an enhanced collagen stimulation it adds the benefit of infusing a nourishing serum into your skin. As a result, a greater skin hydration, smoother texture, smaller pore size, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles is added to the increase in collagen production.

Can Dermal Fillers Be Infused with Aquagold?

Through Aquagold microneedling a number of different ingredients can be injected into the skin, such as peptides, vitamins, growth factors, neurotoxins, and hyaluronic acid. Dr. Schwarzburg can develop a custom treatment plan for you based on your needs and skin type. As for dermal fillers being infused with Aquagold, Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero can be delivered through the fine needles used for the Aquagold treatment. Thus, they can contribute to the improvement and elimination of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the treatment area.

Being delivered to the skin through microchannels, these dermal fillers can perfect the overall volume and smoothness of the skin. However, if you desire to have a more dramatic correction to the volume of your skin, e.g. under the eyes and in the cheeks, then the Aquagold facial will probably not give you the results you want to achieve. If by chance you’ve looked into microneedling tear troughs, kindly be aware that though the combination is possible, it will have little effect when it comes to facial volume gain. For such a result you better go for a full dermal filler injection.

The average price will be anywhere between $700 – $900 per session. However, the cost really depends on the number of treatments you decide to purchase and mainly the infusion that you want to have injected. As there is a special serum involved in the treatment it gives far better results than the traditional microneedling. That is why its price is higher than that of the original microneedling treatment.
