Aquagold Fine Touch is a device that contains 20 microneedles, each measuring smaller than a hair follicle. These microneedles are made up of 24 Karat gold which has a high biocompatabily with human skin preventing irritation, and allergic responses after use. This device delivers products such as dermal fillers, muscle relaxants, and antioxidants directly into the skin. This technique allows these active ingredients to penetrate more deeply resulting in a more healthy vibrant appearance of the skin.
This is best used in combination with other treatments such as injectables and laser treatments. Patients who are looking for a softer, more youthful appearance but do not require dramatic results are ideal candidates as the procedure treats the superficial layers of the skin. It provides improvement in skin texture, fine lines, and mild acne scarring, and it increases collagen production.
The purpose of microchanneling is to deliver treatments directly into the skin. The purpose of other microneedling devices is to puncture the skin for stimulation of collagen remodeling.
This procedure has little to no discomfort and can be performed without topical anesthetic. During this procedure patient may feel light tapping over the face, neck, chest, or hands. This procedure is quick requiring 30 minutes to perform in the office.
There is little or no down time after the procedure. There may be a little redness for less than a day, but no bruising.
