When you are young, your skin is radiant, vibrant, and wrinkle-free. Unfortunately, your skin’s structure becomes weaker as you age, and we all develop fine lines, dry skin, and other issues even if we try to take good care of our skin. Fortunately, you can easily fix these issues with microneedling. At The Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, we can use this fantastic cosmetic technique to refresh your skin.
Replenish Aging Skin With Microneedling
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that uses a minimally invasive method to rejuvenate your skin. This innovative treatment can address a wide variety of age-related issues.
Developing loose, crepey skin on your face and other areas of your body can make you feel unhappy with your appearance. The main cause of loose skin is age. As you get older, your skin’s structure will begin to degrade.
How It Happens
You are born with ample amounts of elastin and collagen. These proteins support your skin and help it stay firm and strong. Unfortunately, the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin weaken over time. Further, your body will begin to produce fewer of these fibers as you age. As these proteins lose strength, your skin will become looser.
In addition to the aging process, your behavior also affects your skin. Losing a large amount of weight, smoking, and other lifestyle choices can increase your chances of experiencing loose skin. Fortunately, this needling technique can tighten your loose skin.
Skin laxity isn’t the only cosmetic issue that worsens over time. In addition to causing your skin to loosen, your decreased levels of elastin and collagen will cause you to develop fine lines on your face. Your lifestyle habits can also cause your skin to age more quickly. In particular, receiving too much sun exposure causes your skin to crease and fold. Receiving this cosmetic treatment is a good way to mitigate this damage.
Your risk of developing dry skin goes up as you get older. This is because your body makes less oil as you age. In addition to age, living in a dry climate, taking very hot showers, and using harsh skincare products can cause you to develop dry skin. This needling treatment can fix this issue by making your skin look more moisturized and smooth.
Uneven Skin Tone
As you get older, you are increasingly likely to develop dark or light patches on your skin. In addition, receiving excessive sun exposure and developing acne can damage your skin tone.
Genetic skin conditions and unbalanced hormones can also cause you to experience this issue. These patches will make your skin tone appear to be uneven and unhealthy. This needling technique can even out your skin tone and make you look younger and more vibrant.
Your pores are small openings in your skin that allow your body to expel sweat and oil. Your pores look bigger when they are clogged with oil, bacteria, dirt, dead skin cells, or other materials. As you age and your collagen decreases, your pores become more likely to take on an enlarged appearance. This treatment will fix the issue by minimizing the appearance of your pores.
What Areas of My Body Can This Treatment Improve?
We use the state-of-the-art Aqua Gold device to enhance your skin. Since your face ages fairly quickly, it’s common to use this device to target this area of your body, but we can use this technique to improve the skin on your neck, the back of your hands, and your upper chest, as well.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Our Aqua Gold device uses your body’s healing power and cosmetic products to make you look younger and fresher. This device consists of a vial filled with a mixture of skincare products. This vial is connected to twenty hollow needles.
During your appointment, we will use the needles in the specialized Aqua Gold device to make microchannels in your treatment area. These microchannels will encourage your body to increase blood flow to your treatment area. They will also stimulate your body to produce healthy, new tissue. As your skin rebuilds itself, it will gradually produce additional collagen. This process will smooth your skin and minimize the appearance of your pores. Your skin will also become firmer and more resilient.
In addition to making tiny channels in your skin, the hollow needles will deliver your customized blend of skincare products underneath the surface of your skin. Using the needles to accomplish this task will allow the products in your solution to penetrate your deeper tissues and achieve meaningful improvements in your skin.
What Should I Expect During My Appointment?
You’ll have a meeting with us before we perform your treatment. During this meeting, we will examine your skin and talk about your cosmetic goals and desires. We will use this information to decide which skincare ingredients to include in the vial in the Aqua Gold device. For instance, if you are dealing with fine lines, we will include ingredients that are designed to smooth your skin.
Performing Your Treatment
We will perform your treatment during a short outpatient appointment in our relaxing office in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. We will use the Aqua Gold device to make very small channels in the skin in your target area. As we make these channels, the device will administer your customized solution of healing products to a precise depth within your skin.
There’s no need to feel worried or nervous about this process. This device has twenty gold-tipped needles that are each thinner than a human hair. These tiny needles are designed to provide you with a safe, comfortable experience.
Your Recovery Period
This treatment has no downtime, and you won’t be required to stay at home to recover after your session is complete. Instead, you’ll be able to resume your usual schedule immediately.
How Quickly Will My Skin Respond to This Treatment?
Since you’ll receive personalized treatment, your results will be unique. That said, you are likely to see improvements in your skin within a week. Your skin will then continue to slowly improve for the next couple of months.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
This is a very individualized process, and your treatment plan will be designed to fit your skin type, goals, and preferences. In general, however, you are likely to see improvements in your skin after one treatment. These improvements may last for several months.
After this point, you can maintain your new look by receiving follow-up sessions. Following a regular skincare routine, exercising, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding excessive sun exposure will also prolong the benefits of your treatment.
What Are the Advantages of the Aqua Gold Device?
The Aqua Gold device is a sophisticated tool that has several unique features:
Suitable for Sensitive Skin
This device uses very thin needles. These needles make your treatment much more comfortable than many other cosmetic techniques. As a result, we can use this device on sensitive areas of your body, such as the skin around your mouth and eyes.
An Effective Technique
The needles in the Aqua Gold device will reach a very precise depth within your skin. Further, the needles can make thousands of micro-injections every minute. These features will allow your body to better absorb the customized solution in the Aqua Gold vial.
A Safe Method
Many needling devices use low-quality metals that irritate the skin. The Aqua Gold device is different. The needles on this device are made of pure gold-plated stainless steel. This gold is biocompatible, and this substance will protect your skin from allergies and irritation.
Can I Perform This Treatment on My Own?
Some websites claim to sell microneedling devices at very low prices. These websites often claim that their devices deliver the same benefits as a professional treatment.
We do not recommend buying a device from a low-cost provider. These at-home treatments are often ineffective and dangerous. You will not be able to penetrate your skin as deeply as a professional healthcare provider can, and as a result, your treatment is unlikely to improve your skin in a meaningful way.
Further, your at-home device may not be properly sterilized, and you could develop an infection in your target area. In addition, you might create wounds on your skin that lead to permanent scars. You should not risk your safety by using these devices. You will protect your skin and achieve more meaningful results by getting this treatment from us.
What Is the Difference Between This Treatment and a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial is an innovative cosmetic treatment that uses microneedling to administer a specialized healing product called platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, to your skin.
Collecting Your Blood
During a vampire facial, we will draw your blood and put it into a centrifuge. A centrifuge is a device that can spin very quickly. As the device spins, it will collect growth factors that are contained in your blood. We will use these growth factors to make the platelet-rich plasma solution.
Treating Your Skin
We will use needles to make microchannels in your target area. Your skin can easily absorb this healing substance through your microchannels. This treatment will improve the appearance of your fine lines, acne scars, and other issues. Although your results will be unique, the improvements in your skin often last for up to two years.
Selecting a Treatment
Both of these treatments can address some of the same skin issues. As a result, it’s common to have difficulty deciding whether to incorporate PRP into your cosmetic treatment. We will guide you through this important decision.
During your initial consultation, we will give you more details about our full range of rejuvenating treatments. We will also discuss your aesthetic priorities. We will use this information to select an ideal treatment for you.
Who Can Benefit From This Treatment?
The Aqua Gold device can be used to address a wide variety of skin conditions. Further, we can adjust this cosmetic treatment to suit many different skin types. As a result, if you are a healthy adult, you are likely to be eligible for this treatment.
We will begin your treatment process by evaluating your health and discussing your medical history. During this discussion, you should tell us if you are pregnant or nursing. You should also tell us about any conditions that you have, including vitiligo or lupus, as these issues could affect your treatment.
