Anti-aging treatments all share one common goal: to reverse the obvious effects of aging on the skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin. Right now, the gold standard in anti-aging treatments is any technique that can simultaneously lift the skin and produce a healthy golden glow. At Beauty 2.0 Aesthetics in Port Moody, BC, we are proud to offer the latest trends in beauty treatments, such as the revolutionary Aqua Gold.
What Is Aqua Gold?
Aqua Gold is a type of microneedling treatment that can help reverse the visible signs of aging on the skin. However, unlike other microneedling techniques, this treatment has zero downtime and more quickly produces a radiant, healthy glow. This treatment is ideal for patients who are searching for a moderate treatment for moderate skin concerns.
How It Works
Similarly to microneedling, this treatment works by creating a micro-injury on the skin, which then stimulates the body’s natural regenerative abilities. In particular, this treatment helps stimulate the production of collagen and encourages more rapid skin cell turn over to tighten and lift skin while also blurring imperfections. And true to its name, the trick to this treatment is the combination of skin-loving liquid serums and pure, 24-karat gold.
Aqua Gold Stamping Device
This treatment uses a patented gold stamping device. The stamp is manually operated and features countless short, thin, hair-like needles that penetrate the upper dermal layers. The stamp serves two purposes: the first to stimulate the body’s regenerative healing abilities to jumpstart the production of collagen, and the second to deliver skin-plumping serums to the sub-dermal layers.
Our Cocktail Blend
We call the skin-plumping serums our special cocktail blend, which contains a powerful combination of hyaluronic acid fillers, tissue-relaxing Xeomin, and additional skin-loving antioxidants that help nourish the skin. It’s this cocktail that produces the radiant results of this treatment.
Unlike other treatments where only a single method is used, the serum cocktail effortlessly combines that moisturizing benefit of hyaluronic acid and the wrinkle-diminishing effects of Xeomin, along with other ingredients that feed and support skin health. The cocktail produces one-of-a-kind, all-over, perfecting results unique to cosmetic treatments.
What It Treats
Aqua Gold is designed to correct mild and moderate superficial skin concerns, specifically those related to aging and skin laxity. This treatment is frequently used to correct skin concerns such as:
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Dull or dry skin
- Enlarged pores
- Loss of skin volume
This treatment can be used on virtually any area of the face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows, the cheeks, the chin, and the area around the mouth. The versatility of this treatment is largely thanks to the cocktail blend that is used, which can be safely used on multiple areas of the face. This particular stamp can also be used on only select areas of the face, such as only between the eyebrows or around the mouth.
What About Results?
The first thing you need to know about the results of this treatment is the virtually nonexistent downtime. The majority of patients are free to turn back to normal daily activities immediately following treatment, including wearing make-up. We do encourage patients to avoid prolonged or direct sun exposure for one to three days until the skin is less vulnerable and to wear sun protectants as usual.
Most patients notice initial improvements to skin appearance within 48 hours of treatment, which include reduced wrinkles, diminished scarring, and improved skin tone and texture. Results for this treatment last for a moderately long time of 12 weeks per treatment. You will need regularly scheduled treatments once every three months to maintain results.
Is Aqua Gold a Replacement for Fillers?
Yes and no – it really depends on your aesthetic goals and the severity of your skin concerns. If you have mild skin laxity or moderate fine lines, this treatment can be an adequate replacement for filler treatments. However, if you require fillers to replace significant volume loss in the face, then this treatment might work best as a stop-gap treatment between your regular filler appointments. In fact, this treatment is commonly used to prolong the effects of dermal fillers and even laser skin treatments.
Who Are Good Candidates?
There are several good candidates for Aqua Gold. The ideal candidate will be someone who is looking for a moderate, minimally invasive treatment for mild superficial skin concerns. All candidates for treatment will need to attend a consultation appointment, where we will discuss your aesthetic goals and your expectations for treatment as well as assess the condition of your skin to determine if you are right for treatment.
Candidates who are best suited for this treatment include those who are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the cocktail blend, those who have multiple minor skin concerns, and those who would prefer less invasive treatments. You might be a good candidate for treatment if you want to:
- Improve the overall appearance of skin
- Correct skin laxity
- Plump skin
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce acne scarring
- Restore tone and texture
