Clear, smooth, glowing skin is the perfect complement to anyone’s natural beauty, but it can be hard for many people to achieve. Fine lines and wrinkles, scars, large pores, and tone and texture issues can make a person look older and less healthy than they are. Fortunately for our clients in the Loudoun County area, Elle Aesthetic Arts is pleased to offer a revolutionary skin resurfacing treatment called AQUAGOLD® fine touch.

Why Choose Elle Aesthetic Arts for AQUAGOLD Skin Rejuvenation?

As a board-certified plastic surgeon and expert in both surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, Dr. Larry Lickstein only offers treatments that are proven to be effective in helping his patients reach their aesthetic goals. Dr. Lickstein and his team of trained providers carefully listen to each patient’s concerns, then fully customizes a treatment plan to help them meet their cosmetic desires.

How Does AQUAGOLD Work?

AQUAGOLD fine touch is a microchannel microinjector. This device employs hollow needles that are finer than a human hair and coated with 24 karat gold. The device delivers a customized blend of skin enhancers, including vitamins, moisturizers, and wrinkle reducers, by stamping them into the skin. Dr. Lickstein offers different formulations to permit customized treatments that address an individual’s skin care needs. This may  include vitamin B12, vitamin C, peptides, hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers, and/or BOTOX®. Not only does this complex enhance the health of the skin, but the creation of microchannels by the AQUAGOLD device stimulates the body’s healing process and production of collagen, leaving your skin rejuvenated and more radiant without any downtime.

How is AQUAGOLD Different From Microneedling?

Microneedling it a technique which takes advantage of the our body’s natural regenerative capacity in order to rejuvenate the skin.  The device mechanically pierces the skin creating minor injuries that prompt the production of collagen as part of the healing response, and in doing so improves skin quality.

Aquagold is theoretically similar to microneedling in that the treatment also creates injury to the skin, but these needles are much finer, and are really used to create microchannels.  The channels are used to infuse a customized blend of skin perfectors, and it is this introduction of stimulants  that produces deeply rejuvenated skin.    Wrinkle reducers, moisture booters, vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and even neurotoxins like botox can be infused into the skin to improve  tone, texture, and overall appearance from within
