AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is an innovative facial experience which nourishes the skin from within.
Featuring twenty 24-karat gold microneedles finer than human hair (0.13mm), the handheld device is gently stamped across the skin to deliver a glow-inducing elixir of Hyaluronic Acid and Micro-Botox.
The microneedles penetrate the skin at a depth of 0.6mm for optimal transdermal absorption, achieving the best benefit possible from the HA/Botox blend. Described as ‘controlled trauma’, the microneedling process triggers the skin’s natural healing process to produce more collagen and elastin.
The skin is naturally very efficient at healing itself. Other needle treatments such as dermal rollers create micro holes through which a serum is then applied, but by this point the skin has typically already begun to heal and close those channels, meaning less product is able to be absorbed into the skin.
In comparison, AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ delivers the serum at the same time as the microchannels are created, before the skin has time to heal itself and dilute the benefits of the ingredients.
We offer the Hyaluronic Acid/Micro-Botox blend as standard, but the “golden cocktail” infused into your skin can be tailored to your particular needs. We are able to include a number of different ingredients into the vial, including vitamins, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), peptides, antioxidants and stem cells.
The HA/Botox elixir provides a universal benefit to all skin types and conditions. More particular skin concerns can be discussed during your consultation with your VIVA doctor who will assess your skin and suggest the best course of treatment.
Depending on the ingredients introduced into the skin, the AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ facial can treat:
· Oily skin (over-production of sebum)
· Large pores
· Fine lines
· Superficial acne scarring
· Dull skin
· Dry skin
· Uneven skin tone
· Rough skin texture
· Skin elasticity
· Acne (not active)
We can use AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ to treat the full face, the neck, the eyes and eye lids up to the lash line, the lips, the backs of the hands and the décolletage.
The screw thread needles used to deliver the “golden cocktail” are finer than human hair and only penetrate the skin at a 0.6mm depth, so the procedure is comfortable if not painless.
AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ offers instant results. Your skin will immediately feel and look softer, smoother, and more hydrated, with a reduction in the appearance of pores and a noticeable, powerful glow. You can introduce this golden facial to your monthly skin routine, or book it in a week prior to any special event such as weddings, holidays, parties or red-carpets.
You may experience slight redness for a few minutes to an hour. Following the procedure, we recommend you avoid washing your face and putting make-up on for the rest of the treatment day. Avoid sun exposure and apply a good quality UVA/UVB SPF50. As with other aesthetic treatments, avoid swimming, saunas and steam rooms.
