How is Aquagold® Microinfusion Different from Traditional Microneedling?
Posted on 1st February 2023
If you’re looking to repair and rejuvenate areas of your skin that don’t look quite how you want them to, you’ve probably considered a multitude of different treatment options. Perhaps you’ve considered microneedling, which is a popular choice for skin rejuvenation.
However, another similar option – and maybe a better one – is Aquagold® microinfusion. Martha Viera, MD and our team at Martha Viera Dermatology in Coral Gables, Florida, explain why choosing Aquagold microinfusion over microneedling might be the best way to go.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen production by using small, sterilized needles to prick the skin. This encourages your body’s natural healing process which in turn gives you smoother and younger looking skin.
What is Aquagold microinfusion?
Aquagold microinfusion uses a device called a microinjector to administer multiple microinjections into your skin. These microinjections can deliver different nutrients or medications like Botox® to your skin for maximum, personalized results.
Similarities and differences
Both microneedling and Aquagold microinfusion are commonly used to treat the following skin conditions:
Fine lines and wrinkles
You can also use microneedling and Aquagold microinfusion to treat skin almost anywhere on your body – especially areas with scarring or stretch marks –, but the most commonly treated areas are the face and neck.
Microneedling and Aquagold microinfusion also both use a pen-like tool to make tiny pricks in your skin. However, the similarities between the two end there.
Microneedling depends on your body’s natural healing process to create new collagen in order to repair all the tiny pricks that are made around the areas that you’re treating. You may need several rounds of treatment and other complementary procedures in order for you to see results.
Aquagold microinfusion actually injects the needed ingredients into your skin to help you achieve whatever skin goals you have. The results you see from your Aquagold microinfusion can last you about 3-4 months and you shouldn't need any additional treatments to help you see maximum results.
The bottom line
Aquagold microinfusion is going to be a much more effective method when it comes to treating large pores, scarring, wrinkles, and stretch marks due to the fact that it directly delivers needed ingredients into your skin rather than relying on your body to do the repairing of your skin itself.
