Microneedling Newport Beach, CA

Some people stay away from skin treatments because they don’t like needles, or don’t want to look like they’ve had work done. Now there’s Aquagold® Fine Touch™, a new microneedling treatment to improve damaged skin with no bruising or downtime. Aquagold is a revolutionary microneedle device that contains 24 karat needles, each of which is smaller than a hair follicle. This device delivers products such as platelet-rich-plasma, dermal fillers, muscle relaxants, retinol, and antioxidants directly into the skin.

Applying anti-aging products directly under the skin allows them to be absorbed much more effectively and with a much longer duration of effectiveness because these products do not have to bypass the natural protective barrier of the skin. Deeper penetration of these active ingredients results in a more healthy and vibrant appearance of the skin. Aquagold is a versatile tool for treating many cosmetic facial issues such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Decreased skin elasticity
  • Loss of facial volume

How It Works

Depending on a patient’s concerns and desired results, we can fully customize the solution to be applied with the microchannel device. You can include Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the primary ingredient in the treatment.
It offers the following benefits:

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production to thicken and tighten thinning skin
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acts as an antioxidant and has hydrating properties

These benefits will not be seen immediately but will improve gradually over the months. The solution can be customized with other ingredients to maximize results.

  • Dysport® or Jeuveau™ in trim levels at the surface of the skin, where it is not near a muscle, improves the size of the pores and decreases redness over time. This can help acne. The muscle relaxants provide a natural, gentle smoothing of the skin.
  • Deeper wrinkles often require larger needles and more volume. This is accomplished with Restylane® dermal fillers. Micro channeling with Restylane® dermal filler provides a natural-looking increase in skin suppleness.

Aquagold works best in a series of three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Results appear slowly and naturally as the PRP amplifies the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue.

Because the Aquagold treatment offers buildable results, it works well with other treatments. Used in conjunction with deeper dermal filler injections or after laser treatment, Aquagold can enhance outcomes. It is also an ideal addition to surgical facial rejuvenation.

Expected Results

You can expect to see your skin glowing and feeling smoother. You’ll also notice that your skin looks younger and healthier, without a trace of those fine lines or wrinkles. Most people see improvements after just one treatment. That’s because microneedling works by creating micro-injuries to your skin, which triggers new collagen production. And once that new collagen is produced, you can keep it forever.

The best part is that you don’t have to wait to see improvements. You can see an improvement in your skin’s appearance, tone, and texture after just one treatment. And because Aquagold Fine Touch improves both deep and superficial wrinkles, it works equally well for people who are starting to see fine lines as well as those who want fewer signs of aging on their face. Some people find that it helps them avoid invasive cosmetic surgery like facelifts altogether.
No matter what type of skin damage you’re trying to improve, microneedling is a simple, non-invasive solution. And best of all, unlike needles or surgery, there’s no recovery time or downtime, so if you’re ready for younger-looking skin and want to start seeing results immediately after your first treatment.

When Can I Have a Microneedling Session?

Microneedling treatment can be performed any time of year and is safe for all skin types. However, if you have darker skin, you may want to avoid scheduling your session in summer or around holidays when your skin is exposed to more sunlight. As an alternative, consider having your microneedling session early in summer so that you have ample time for recovery before exposing your skin to bright sunlight.

Microneedling Recovery Process

Following microneedling sessions, your skin might look a little pink or feel like it’s burning or itching—but you should see some improvement in your skin’s texture and tone within a few days. You may need to go through several treatments before noticing any real difference. Overall, it’s a safe treatment with a relatively low recovery time. It is recommended that you do not use an approved moisturizer on treated areas during recovery periods since they are easily absorbed into deeper layers of tissue.

Can I Combine Microneedling With Other Treatments?

Microneedling can be combined with other medical treatments such as fillers, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels to enhance results further. It’s also possible to combine it with laser procedures like fractional resurfacing. Depending on your skin condition and personal preference, our professionals will be able to recommend which additional treatments work best for you.

Who Should Not Get Microneedling?

Microneedling is not suitable for people with clotting, bleeding disorders, or who take blood thinners. These conditions can cause your body to bleed too much if you get an injury under your skin when it is punctured by needles. In other words, don’t get microneedling if you have one of these issues.

Additionally, those with conditions like diabetes or a weakened immune system should also avoid microneedling. When considering if you should get Microneedling, it is essential to consult with a professional so they can evaluate any conditions or medications you may take before performing any procedure on your skin.

Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an effective skin improvement procedure that works by creating tiny injuries in your skin and promoting your skin’s natural healing response. For microneedling treatments at European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta uses Aquagold® Fine Touch™, an industry-leading microneedling device. 

Aquagold Fine Touch is different from other microneedling treatments. The device includes 20 needles that make consistent micro-injuries in your skin’s surface. Each needle is finer than a human hair, so the treatment doesn’t cause much discomfort. The gold-plated stainless steel needles are gentle on your skin and won’t cause an allergic reaction. 

Aquagold Fine Touch also delivers essential vitamins and nutrients into your skin to nourish and hydrate it. Thanks to the microchannels, the nutrients go deep into your skin for a drastic enhancement in its quality. 

What are the results of microneedling?

Microneedling improves the tone and texture of your skin without lasers, lights, or deep injections. With Aquagold Fine Touch, you’ll see a notable reduction in these prominent features on your skin:

  • Acne scars
  • Other small scars
  • Age or sun spots
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rough or uneven textures 
  • Dryness or flakiness
  • Stretch marks

The Aquagold Fine Touch needles stimulate collagen and elastin production within your skin. You lose these two proteins as you age and spend time in the sun, making your skin looser and less firm over time. You can’t stop the aging process, but regular microneedling treatments can make your skin age more slowly. 

How should I prepare for microneedling?

Before Aquagold Fine Touch or any treatment available at European Wellness Cosmedical, you should visit Britta for a consultation about your skin type, concerns, and treatment goals. She can help you decide if microneedling is the right treatment for your skin or help you choose another more suitable therapy. If you both decide on microneedling, she gives you these instructions to prepare:

  • Stop taking ibuprofen and other medications that make you bleed more
  • Stop taking acne medications or reduce your dosage
  • Avoid direct sun exposure
  • Avoid artificial ultraviolet light sources like tanning beds
  • Reschedule your appointment if you get a rash

You don’t need to worry about downtime with microneedling: You can go straight back to work and other everyday activities after your appointment. However, you might have some slight redness that you can conceal with makeup if you choose.
