The Aquagold Fine Touch device is a revolutionary new method of microneedling, sometimes called Collagen Induction Therapy, available at Long Island Dermatology. The Aquagold device contains a number of extra fine, 24-karat gold needles, that are designed specifically to treat multiple areas of the face and body – leaving you with freshly restored, and rejuvenated skin, in under 30 minutes!
How Does it Work?
The Aquagold device works similar to other forms of microneedling, however the extra fine needles (as thin as a human hair) are able to penetrate far deeper into the dermis, reaching a level that is 600 microns deep. Aquagold microneedling works by creating a number of micro-punctures within the desired part of the skin. These micro-punctures reach the skin’s inner layer known as the dermis – stimulating a number of naturally regenerative processes within the treatment area. Once at the dermis, the needles stimulate a reaction that produces a vital compound that is often depleted with age and skin damage, collagen. Collagen is responsible for the overall health of the skin, and provides patients with the soft, supple skin they have always wanted. And once the micro-punctures begin to heal, the skin will heal far healthier, and better looking than ever before.
Microneedling works using the same principle – the body’s natural healing mechanism causes the cuts created by the Aquagold device to heal, and every time the skin heals, fresh new skin cells take the place of the previous, dull, dead ones. And this cellular turnover replenishes the skin, and restores your vibrant tone and texture, renewed facial contours, and the youthful glow you may not have seen in years!
AquaGold Fine Touch
One of the major benefits to the Aquagold device is held within those extra-fine, 24-karat gold needles. Because of its additional length to most common forms of microneedling, as well as its revolutionary functions – the needles are able to deliver anti-aging products, and skin replenishing nutrients directly into the dermis during the process!
Common products delivered by the AquaGold are:
- Vitamin C
- Retinols and Retinoids
- Anti-Aging Creams and Serums
- PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
- Growth Factors
- Botox and Other Neuromodulators
- Injectable Dermal Filler Compounds
- And More!
Side Effects & Downtime
Side effects associated with the Aquagold system are fairly mild, some patients may experience minor swelling and redness at the skin’s surface – but this will generally heal soon after treatment. For the major results, patients must wait for the skin to heal and this process can take a few days, and is highly dependent upon the patient, as well as the level of correction.
Depending on your specific corrective needs, our medical professional will determine the number of sessions required, as well their frequency. For more information on the Aquagold device, microneedling in general, and to schedule a free consultation, contact Long Island Dermatology today.
