If you're on the hunt for a skin treatment that offers a flawless, poreless, glowing complexion as clear as glass, then look no further. AquaGold aka MicroInfusion aka skin Botox, is unlike any other facial available on the market.
AquaGold is a non-invasive, customizable micro-channeling treatment using Botox, dermal filler, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and other medical grade serums to give your skin that red carpet glow.
The potions are bespoke. The needles, 24K gold-plated. And the intention, clear: plump, juicy, hydrated skin, bursting with radiance from the inside out. An AquaGold Facial involves using a tiny 24K gold micro-channelling device to stamp a bespoke elixir of strategically blended, skin-rejuvenating ingredients into the superficial layer of the skin. There is no exact recipe for the cocktail, but most contain a unique blend of vitamins, Botox and mesotherapy products based on your individual skin concerns and goals. Popular ingredients include vitamin C, glutathione, hyaluronic acid, filler, and Botox.
Once the ingredients are blended, the device is gently stamped over the face and into the epidermis creating a pathway for the serums to penetrate and seep into the deeper layers of the skin. It can even treat typically hard-to-reach areas including under the eyes and around the nose. With 20 needles per stamp and thinner than a human hair the gold standard infusion is pain-free with no downtime!
Whilst this facial is well-known for ramping up skin radiance, the treatment perks don't end there. Patients of all skin types and ethnicities can really benefit, with minimal downtime, at any time of year. The unique blend of ingredients chosen for a given patient will influence the exact effects of the treatment. A neurotoxin, such as Botox is a common ingredient in AquaGold formulas. Since it's entering skin, not muscle, it doesn't work to minimize muscle movement, but instead, it relaxes the tiny arrector pili muscles to reduce the appearance of pores and improve the skin's overall texture. Injecting tiny droplets of toxin into the skin has also been shown to diminish sebum production, making it an excellent treatment option for blemish-prone skin.
AquaGold is commonly laced with hyaluronic acid and a small amount of dermal filler, which acts as an internal moisturizer, drawing water into the skin to plump up cells and enhance natural radiance.
Other skin serums, vitamins and peptides are often added into the mix, to brighten the complexion, preventing free-radical damage, alleviating redness, and halting inflammation and pigment production.
The effects are subtle, but powerful, and will vary depending on the precise ingredients in the custom cocktail, and the patient's skin type. Enhanced hydration and a slight plumping of the skin may appear within minutes to hours of treatment, but other effects usually won't register straight away. A toxin's influence, such as oil reduction, tightening pores and quietening redness - can take a week or two to show. There may be other compounds in the mix that provide invisible skin protection or offer rewards that take a little more time (or multiple treatments) to accrue.
Long-term benefits will come from the process of the microneedling itself, which stimulates your own natural collagen production to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
Overall, the results tend to last for six to eight weeks, so most patients opt for a course of monthly or quarterly sessions to recharge and amplify the effects over time.
