Your Face Loves Being Pampered with AquaGold

Whether sun damage, stress, environmental factors, or simply the decline of collagen that comes with aging, our facial skin shows our age sooner than we’d like. Fine lines and wrinkles, areas of volume loss, pigmentation problems — they all add up.

In our JECT Medical Aesthetics area of Dr. Frank’s practice, we use the AquaGold facial to improve these facial skin problems. AquaGold combines microneedling with mesotherapy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin and then to deliver a personalized cocktail of Botox & HA filler through those channels directly into the dermis.

The result is impressive improvement in your facial skin. Your skin will love our AquaGold facials.

How does AquaGold work?

AquaGold’s secret is a handpiece with a tip made up of 20 gold-plated microneedles. Each of these needles is about the width of a human hair. They are made of steel for strength and then are coated with 24-karat gold for easy penetration into the skin. For every AquaGold treatment at Dr. Frank’s we use a new tip, ensuring the needles are sterile and free from any impurities.

The AquaGold handpiece is moved across the skin surface and the needles move up and down. They reach a depth of 600 microns, which is the ideal depth for insertion of the various ingredients that will fortify the skin. This depth penetrates the epidermis (the skin’s outer layer) and enters the dermis (the skin’s second layer). The needles provide microneedling, while at the same time introducing vitamins, peptides, stem cells, and other beneficial ingredients.

What does an AquaGold facial treat?

Our AquaGold facials improve the skin across the treatment areas. Specifically, they improve facial issues such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Decreased skin elasticity
  • Areas of uneven skin texture
  • Areas of volume loss
  • Age spots and pigmentation problems

How many AquaGold treatments will I need?

These can be stand-alone treatments, especially before a big event. But we recommend having an AquaGold facial every three months or so to provide your skin with an ongoing boost in collagen production. This helps keep up with the decline in collagen that comes with the aging process.

Give Your Skin Some Love in 2022

Huh?

We know, that kind of sounds like the latest Marvel superhero or something. But AquaGold actually combines microneedling with a form of mesotherapy to rejuvenate the skin. We offer it in JECT Medical Aesthetics at Dr. Frank’s.

What is AquaGold?

If you’re reading Dr. Frank’s blog, you probably know about microneedling. The concept is to create hundreds of microscopic punctures into the epidermis layer of the skin, down into the skin’s second layer, the dermis. These punctures are so small they heal within just a few hours, but they trigger a wound response in the body. This response is to remodel existing collagen in the area, and to initiate the production of new collagen to send to “heal” the perceived wounds. This improves skin tone, texture, and firmness.

Mesotherapy has been used in Europe for weight loss. Traditional mesotherapy involves multiple injection below the dermis into the mesoderm, the layer below the dermis where the body’s connective tissues can be found. AquaGold doesn’t seek fat reduction, but it injects active ingredients such as plant extracts, enzymes, peptides, and vitamins deep into the skin with the goal of tightening and rejuvenating the skin.

How does AquaGold work?

AquaGold’s secret is a handpiece with a tip made up of 20 gold-plated needles. Each of these needles is about the width of a human hair. For a AquaGold treatment at JECT Medical Aesthetics we use a new tip for each patient, ensuring the needles are sterile and free from any reactions.

The AquaGold handpiece is moved across the skin surface and the needles move up and down.
