Do lines, wrinkles, scars, or uneven skin tone have you feeling down? Your face is often the first place where wrinkles and signs of aging begin to appear, but you don’t have to settle for dull, sagging, or lifeless skin anymore.
Microneedling is a safe, effective cosmetic procedure that boosts collagen production in your face to plump and brighten skin. Targeting lines and wrinkles, age spots, scars, and more, it brings a host of benefits for your skin and your confidence.
At her Melanie L. Adams, MD, practice, Dr. Adams offers the latest in microneedling technology: AquaGold®. AquaGold uses microneedling combined with microchannel technology to infuse your skin with beneficial products that enhance your results.
Popular with celebrities, AquaGold microneedling has the power to rejuvenate your skin with products like retinol or hyaluronic acid. Because microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, you won’t experience much downtime to get plumper, younger-looking skin.
Microneedling revitalizes your skin
Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that delivers renewed, firmer, toned skin without the need for cosmetic surgery. Using a roller with tiny needles, Dr. Adams pricks the surface of your skin. These tiny punctures stimulate the collagen in your skin to generate new cells and skin tissue.
New collagen production treats a variety of skin issues, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Sagging skin
- Age spots
- Dull, lifeless skin
Your skin creates more collagen, which tightens skin, fills lines and wrinkles, and corrects uneven skin tone caused by sun damage, among other benefits. Microneedling gives you brighter, refreshed skin in just a few treatment sessions.
How long does microneedling treatment take?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure done at Dr. Adams’ office. You can expect your session to take about two hours, including the time set aside for Dr. Adams and her team to prepare your skin for treatment. Depending on your skin condition and goals, multiple microneedling sessions can improve your results.
Dr. Adams may apply a topical anesthetic to help keep you pain-free during treatment, but most patients experience little to no discomfort. Nor do they have any downtime after the procedure, so it’s back to their daily lives immediately after the microneedling session. You might experience some redness or irritation following treatment, but these side effects should fade.
Before beginning treatment, talk to Dr. Adams about your goals and your medical history. She answers your questions and helps you determine if microneedling is a good choice for your skin.
The AquaGold microneedling difference
AquaGold microneedling therapy delivers the benefits of standard microneedling, with the additional benefits of microchannel mesotherapy. Microchannel technology enhances your skin’s ability to absorb products that plump and revitalize skin. When combined with microneedling, these products are better absorbed by your skin for more dramatic results.
Using tiny microneedles made of gold, AquaGold can deliver products like hyaluronic acid, retinol, and vitamin C to boost collagen regeneration. In some cases, growth factors found in your blood cell platelets can be infused into your skin during a microneedling session to increase the amount of beneficial proteins your skin has, to give it a younger look.
Hyaluronic acid, which is found in many popular injectable fillers, increases skin volume. Retinol is an antioxidant that reduces inflammation and treats sun damage. Vitamin C boosts collagen production and increases skin hydration.
Depending on your needs, Dr. Adams customizes AquaGold therapy, creating a recommended compound for your skin. Targeting dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and more, AquaGold therapy boosts collagen production and helps give your face a youthful glow.
