Collagen is the most abundant protein in your skin and the key component in creating and maintaining the connective tissue that make skin youthful and radiant. A lack or decrease in collagen is associated with aging and many skin conditions, including stretch marks. Microneedling is a way to deliver and enhance collagen production where you need it most to improve your skin’s appearance.
AQUAGOLD Fine Touch is a revolutionary new microneedling treatment that, when expertly executed, can have beautiful effects on your skin. This state-of-the-art procedure is available at St. Petersburg Skin and Laser where we are dedicated to bringing you the most advanced treatments in Dermatology.
What makes AQUAGOLD Fine Touch Different from Traditional Microneedling?
AQUAGOLD Fine Touch is the most innovative and effective microneedling treatment on the market. This revolutionary device uses 24 karat gold needles that are smaller than a strand of hair. Because it allows for deeper penetration, this device can deliver products such as platelet-rich plasma, Retinol, vitamin C, growth factors, Botox, or dermal fillers directly into the skin with virtually no pain. By using AQUAGOLD Fine Touch, we can penetrate even deeper than traditional topical treatments which allows the skin to absorb the products more efficiently, leading to improved cosmetic results.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that is used to treat skin conditions by boosting collagen production and delivering ingredients that improve the appearance of your skin. It involves using small needles to penetrate directly into problem areas. The treatment is practically painless and is an excellent method of reducing the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and signs of aging like lines and wrinkles.
What should I expect during the procedure?
A topical numbing cream may be applied prior to the procedure. The procedure itself takes from 15-30 minutes. Because it does not require any surgical treatment, there is minimal downtime and you can return to your daily activities the next day. You can also expect to see results in as little as two weeks but the skin quality and overall youthfulness continues to improve for 3-6 months after treatment.
Can I combine Aquagold Microneedling with other rejuvenation procedures?
Yes! Aquagold Microneedling is ideally used in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures including wrinkle relaxers, fillers, and laser resurfacing. Our Dermatologists will help you make a comprehensive anti-aging plan that includes Aquagold Microneedling.
