Over the past few years, we’ve seen and read a lot more in media about the concept of self-care. Self-care is the idea of taking time to prioritize and give yourself the best so that you can, in turn, give your best back to the people and world around you. Self-care is not necessarily a new concept, but we’re glad more people are talking about it and incorporating the practice of self-care into their lives.
At AW Plastic Surgery, we help people practice self-care in big and small ways every day. In a lot of ways, that’s what plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic treatments are all about—walking away from your appointment and looking and feeling your absolute best. There are almost no limitations to the number of ways a strong sense of self-confidence can improve a person’s life, and the benefits can be profoundly positive for your physical and mental health.
In this post, we’re going to tell you more about AquaGold®, one of our favorite ways to help our patients practice self-care by treating their skin to the best. This exciting new FDA-approved mesotherapy treatment is a quick, convenient way to rejuvenate your skin and give it that natural healthy glow.
If you’re thinking about making non-surgical skin care part of your self-care routine, please contact us with your questions or call our plastic surgery practice in Portsmouth, NH at (603) 294-4526 for a consultation.
What Is the AquaGold Treatment?
AquaGold has recently gained a lot of popularity from high profile celebrity endorsements. You might’ve seen the video Kim Kardashian posted when she tried AquaGold. In the video, she praises the treatment for its ability to smooth her skin almost immediately without bruising, with minimal discomfort, all in the span of about 10 minutes. All of those wonderful benefits are characteristic of AquaGold, but what’s really cool about the treatment is what happens underneath the surface of the skin. AquaGold delivers custom sets of ingredients below your skin using microchannel technology, which helps rejuvenate and heal your skin long after your appointment. The results can even be cumulative if you make AquaGold part of a longer treatment plan.
AquaGold is a fantastic way for people to smooth, tighten, and improve the tone of their skin, especially if they don’t like needles or don’t need more invasive procedures. The magic behind AquaGold is in its delivery mechanism, which is a patented screw thread device with a 24-carat gold plated microneedle injection system. The needles are thinner than human hair, which allows a plastic surgeon or aesthetic professional to apply a hyaluronic acid, vitamin, and Botox®-like mixture below the skin without any pain. The tiny needles also allow our practice to treat areas such as those close to the eyes that may be too sensitive for other injectable or microneedling procedures.
What Can AquaGold Treat?
AquaGold is a versatile treatment that can improve many unsightly skin conditions. It can:
- Even out skin discoloration from hyperpigmentation and melasma
- Improve the appearance of acne scarring
- Help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the size of enlarged pores
- Hydrate skin
- Lighten and even out skin tone
There’s little to no downtime, no bleeding or bruising, and most people who have the treatment start seeing results shortly after their appointments.
Make AquaGold and Great Skin Care Part of Your Self-Care Routine!
It’s no secret that many plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic professionals will tell you that one of the best things you can do to achieve your aesthetic goals, no matter your age, is to focus on making your skin look and feel healthy. It’s always wonderful to have someone compliment the “glow” of your skin, and no one likes leaving the house with that twinge of self-doubt from looking in the mirror and feeling way older because of the way your skin looks.
Treat your skin to the best. Minimally-invasive, safe, convenient treatments like AquaGold can be a standalone treatment or part of a larger skin rejuvenation plan. Do yourself a big favor and focus some of your self-care energy on your skin.
