We know that as the holiday season approaches, everyone is wanting to look their best. If you have been looking for an affordable, fast, and effective minimally invasive treatment option to turn back the clock, we may have the perfect treatment option for you! At Tacoma Laser Clinic we are proud to offer AquaGold as a new treatment option for skin rejuvenation.
What is AquaGold?
AquaGold is a skin resurfacing treatment that combines microneedling with micro-infusion therapy. Unlike traditional micro-needling devices, AquaGold uses 24-carat gold-plated needles to exfoliate and resurface your skin. During treatment, the micro-channels made in your skin allow us to infuse customized serums into your skin to nourish and treat a variety of skincare concerns.
The most commonly treated area is the face, including the more delicate areas such as around the eyes or lips. However, AquaGold can also be used to treat other areas such as your neck, chest, arms, and hands.
As stated above, your infusion serum is blended to meet your unique skin care needs and goals. Common blends include vitamins, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, growth factors, and even Botox! Yes, AquaGold can serve as a delivery method for Baby Botox! Baby Botox is very similar to traditional Botox injections, except the dosage is much smaller and delivered into the surface of your skin for a smoother, softer, and more youthful appearance.
AquaGold is a new skincare treatment option that focuses on rejuvenating your skin’s appearance so that you can look healthier and younger without the hassle of invasive procedures and lengthy downtimes. The advantages of AquaGold include:
- Brightens skin tone
- Controls oil production
- Evens skin texture and clarifies your complexion
- Improves superficial blemishes and scars
- Reduces the appearance of pores
- Smooths skin
- Tightens and hydrates skin removing fine lines and wrinkles
How does it compare to other treatments?
AquaGold needles are not gold-plated for looks–they are plated to enhance and improve your treatment. The gold plating reduces the chance of reaction and irritation during treatment compared to other dermal needles used in micro-needling. Each needle also measures .6mm long and is thinner than a strand of human hair, making treatment less painful and lowers your risk of inflammation after treatment.
Compared to traditional Botox injections, AquaGold uses the toxin in a much smaller amount. It is important to note that this does not make the treatment less effective but may not produce as prominent or long-lasting results compared to full injections. However, AquaGold can instead offer more natural, relaxed, and softer results. It is important to note that though AquaGold can be used to minimize signs of age or unwanted blemishes, it cannot produce the same results as Botox treatment or dermal fillers.
A typical treatment session lasts less than 30 minutes but will depend on the area being treated. There is no downtime associated with treatment, so you will be able to return to work immediately following your appointment. We do recommend you avoid direct sun exposure, wearing makeup, washing your face, or touching the treated area too much during the first 24 hours following your appointment. Patients may notice results several days after treatment, with results continuing to improve over the next few months. This procedure can be performed every 3 to 4 months to help maintain results.
