AQUAGOLD Fine Touch Microchanneling Super Facial
What is AquaGold Fine Touch or AquaGold Facial?
AquaGold fine touch is a form of micro needling that uses gold plated needles. Like other forms of micro needling, AquaGold fine touch’s needles penetrate the upper layers of skin to create microchannels. The AquaGolds’ needles penetrate to 0.6 mm. The micro-channels allow for the delivery of skin modifying agents directly into the deeper layers of skin, where sun damage and aging occur.
How is AquaGold different from Microneedling?
In terms of mechanisms of action, AquaGold is identical to micro needling. Both create channels to deliver ingredients directly to the treatment area. In Micro-needling one has to put the solution on the skin and then create holes to deliver the ingredients into the skin, In AquaGold a collection of very fine needles are used to deliver ingredients into the treatment area, just beneath the skin, while simultaneously stimulating collagen and elastin production. The treatment is a minimally invasive delivery system for dermal fillers such as Juvederm, wrinkle relaxers like Botox or Dysport and other skin nourishing ingredients.
Why Choose AquaGold Fine Touch?
For mild skin imperfections such as fine lines and acne scars, AquaGold Fine Touch delivers a smaller amount of active ingredients to the areas using fine gold plated stainless steel needles. This provides natural-looking rejuvenation for minor skin imperfections and the early signs of aging while protecting against additional skin irritation. AquaGold delivers treatment uses consistent depth over a large surface area that a syringe cannot provide.
