Anti-aging treatments applied to the exterior of the skin can help refresh your complexion, but AquaGold delivers customized rejuvenation products directly into the skin using ultra-fine, 24k gold needles. Our med spa in Barrington, IL, which serves Schaumburg, Arlington Heights, and surrounding areas, offers AquaGold as part of a comprehensive approach to skin care.
The primary difference between microneedling and AquaGold treatments is that AquaGold actually injects skin rejuvenation products directly into the skin. Microneedling, on the other hand, creates micro-channels that can absorb serums. AquaGold is really a micro-injector treatment that infuses the skin with a customized solution that often includes mini-doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport, hyaluronic acid such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®, PRP/PRF (platelet-rich plasma/fibrin), stem factors, vitamin C, and other skin care serums.
Our licensed aestheticians begin the AquaGold treatment by applying a cream that numbs the treatment area. Patients don’t experience any discomfort during the procedure, which takes only a few minutes. After the area is numb, the aestheticians then gently “stamp” the skin with the small AquaGold device. The customized skin rejuvenation solution flows into the skin through channels in the microscopic needles, which are smaller than a human hair.
AquaGold treatments provide a range of benefits for patients with concerns about their skin. It’s an excellent choice for restoring vibrancy to the area under the eyes, reducing the size of pores on the nose and cheeks, minimizing lines on the neck and décolletage, and improving the appearance of your hands. The results appear almost immediately, and the procedure requires no downtime. The skin’s glowing, and more youthful appearance typically lasts 2 to 3 months.
