Do wrinkles, lines, scars, or uneven skin texture and tone have you feeling self-conscious about your skin? Your face is often the first place where age related issues being to appear, because as we age, our body stops producing important compounds such as collagen and elastin. When we lose these important compounds, our skin begins to look dull and lackluster.
Microneedling is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment that kick starts the body’s natural production of collagen for plumper and brighter skin. From targeting fine lines to age spots to acne scars and more, it brings a host of benefits for your skin and your self-confidence.
I am board-certified family physician Dr. Christine Eros, and at my practice, Eros Beauty and Wellness, I offer the latest in microneedling technology: Aquagold. Aquagold takes traditional microneedling and combines it with microchannel technology to infuse your skin with beneficial products that help to enhance results.
The Benefits of Aquagold Microneedling
Microneedling has become an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure because of its ability to deliver renewed, firmer, smoother skin without the need for a more invasive cosmetic surgery. Using a roller with tiny needles, the device will gently penetrate the surface of the skin. These small punctures stimulate the collagen in your skin to generate new cells and skin tissue.
New collagen production holds a variety of benefits including:
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrinks enlarged pores
- Tightens sagging skin
- Smooth texture due to scarring
- Corrects age spots
- Revitalizes dull, lifeless skin
What to Expect From an AquaGold Microneedling Session
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure done at my office. You can expect your session to take around two hours, which includes the time it takes for me to set up and prepare your skin for treatment. Depending on your skin conditions and goals, multiple microneedling sessions may be required to improve your results.
To ensure that your treatment is comfortable and enjoyable, I will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin. You may experience some redness and irritation following your treatment, but these side effects should fade shortly. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure, so you can go right back to your daily life after your session.
The Difference of AquaGold Microneedling
AquaGold microneedling delivers the benefits of traditional microneedling but with the additional benefits of microchannel mesotherapy. Microchannel technology enhances your skin’s ability to absorb products that plump and revitalize the skin. When combined with microneedling, these products are able to absorb into your skin at a much more effective rate for more dramatic results.
With the use of tiny microneedles made of gold, Aquagold can deliver products like hyaluronic acid, retinol, vitamin C, and more to boost collagen regeneration. In some cases, we can even use growth factors found in your blood cell platelets to infuse into your skin during your microneedling session to increase the beneficial proteins in your skin.
