Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Microneedling

When you are young (in your 20s and 30s) your skin rapidly makes collagen and elastin. Your face is plump and smooth. In your 40s and 50s, your body slows its collagen and elastin production, especially following menopause if you are a woman. Your skin thins, sags, and fine lines develop. You no longer have the apple cheeks of your youth. Needling increases the skin’s production of collagen proteins. Skin softens, pores shrink, and fine lines disappear. 

 

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling creates a younger looking appearance by encouraging your skin to naturally regenerate. A device is used to make hundreds of pinpricks in the skin’s surface. The wounds are only in the top dermal layer so almost painless. The microscopic injuries encourage the body’s natural healing process. New skin cells, collagen, and elastin are produced. Your skin will look smoother and firmer. Also, acne scars significantly fade and fill out.

 

Microneedling Benefits

  • Safe and reliable
  • Only minimally invasive
  • No downtime
  • Minor redness for only a few days after the procedure
  • Instant results

 

Treating Acne Scars With Microneedling

Studies have shown that microneedling erases acne scars. The scars develop because the collagen suffers damage from the chronic inflammation caused by the acne cysts. After microneedling, the new collagen growth smooths the scars. Also, redness at the scar sites fade. Your complexion will appear more even.

However, if you have inflamed acne cysts, a sunburn, psoriasis, eczema, or a skin infection then you might want to wait. Microneedling cannot be done if your skin is inflamed or irritated. You can discuss the problems with your doctor to decide if you need to hold off having the procedure.

 

Undergoing Microneedling

From start to finish, the entire needling therapy takes about two hours. The treatment is often packaged as a medi-facial. With a medi-facial, your skin receives complete pampering. It’s like a spa day for your face. 

 

Immediate And Long Term Results Of Microneedling

At first, your skin will look luminous, plumped, and pink which lasts a couple of weeks. Then the skin’s natural healing takes over and elastin and collagen increase. Within six months you will see very noticeable changes as scarring, lines, and hyperpigmentation are lessened.

 

The Healing Process Of Microneedling

A calming lotion is smoothed onto your skin following microneedling. Your skin heals and regenerates rapidly which is what makes needling so popular, but it does require protection. You will be advised not to expose yourself to harsh sunlight. Initially, a sunscreen is a must any time you go outside.

 

Aquagold Fine Touch®

Unlike traditional microneedling devices, the Aquagold Fine Touch needles are 24k gold-plated. The needles’ hair-fine design makes the treatment painless. Channels in the needle’s center deliver cosmetic solutions deep into the skin’s layers. Think of Aquagold microneedling as a mega facial that renders amazing, long-lasting results. There is no bruising or downtime. You can immediately return to work and your family.

Why Choose Aquagold Fine Touch®?

Standard microneedling devices such as rollers do not deliver anti-aging products. Aquagold enables hydrating solutions to penetrate deep into the skin’s dermal layers for instant hydration and plumping.

What Aquagold® Can Treat

  • Fine lines & deep wrinkles
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Sagging
  • Scarring
  • Decreased elasticity

For even greater results, combine Aquagold needling with anti-wrinkle solutions and fillers.

 

Are You Afraid Of Needles When Considering Microneedling?

Many people have a genuine fear of needles, but don’t let your phobia stop you. Microneedling is painless and highly effective.  With Aquagold, the device used doesn’t resemble a needle and syringe. Instead, it looks like a golden instrument.

 

At-Home Microneedling Kits

Sure, you might be tempted to buy an at-home microneedling kit. Many brands are sold online or at department stores. The drugstore brands may seem like an affordable option, but you won’t get the same results. The kits have short needles that will not stimulate collagen. Also, unlike Aquagold, there is no way to inject solutions where your skin needs it. You should only have a professional aesthetic physician perform microneedling.

Microneedling - So Much More Than Just For the Face

You can have microneedling performed on your chest, shoulders, hips, buttocks, or tummy. All areas can benefit. It can even lessen the appearance of stretch marks.

Think of microneedling, both standard and Aquagold®, as a building block. You can use it as one of many ways to achieve the look you envision. Microneedling is frequently combined with lasers or other cosmetic procedures. Please, talk with your physician to learn the many combinations.
