Treating Hyperpigmentation With AquaGold®

Your face is often the first feature people notice about you. Everyone wants beautiful, clear skin, and the beauty industry is constantly releasing new products that promise this. But what many people don’t know is that these products do little to improve your skin.

As you age, you might have seen skin conditions arise like wrinkles, large pores, and hyperpigmentation – when patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. Although hyperpigmentation is harmless, many wish to address it for cosmetic concerns. 

AquaGold® is a state-of-the-art microchanneling treatment that can safely address hyperpigmentation along with a variety of other skin care concerns. Laguna Beach Aesthetics Laguna Beach, California, offers AquaGold so patients can get the bright, flawless skin they’ve always wanted.

How it works

You’ve probably heard of microneedling or have even tried it. AquaGold goes one step above microneedling by administering microinjections below the skin.

Using the AquaGold handpiece, Adrienne O’Connell, DO, delivers over 1,000 microinjections a minute into your skin. The high-tech device contains over 20 0.6-millimeter needles that are plated in gold to minimize irritation. The needles are hollow, which allows the serum to be directly administered into your skin for the best results possible.

A serum made for you 

If you’ve liked what you’ve heard so far, you’re probably wondering what kind of serum AquaGold administers into your skin. During your consultation, Dr. O’Connell examines your skin to address conditions like hyperpigmentation so she can decide what serums will benefit you the most. 

Dr. O’Connell can address hyperpigmentation with a variety of skin-care serums so you can get bright, dewy skin. To get rid of skin dullness, Dr. O’Connell may use Vitamin C Complex or Glutathione — an antioxidant known for its anti-aging properties. Botox can be added to your AquaGold treatment to address fine lines and tighten your skin. 

Dr. O’Connell may suggest adding Juvederm to your treatment to help bring moisture into your skin and restore lost volume.

No pain

Many beauty treatments fail to tell you of the pain involved with specific services. With AquaGold, we can happily tell you that there’s no pain involved. 

Unlike microneedling, no microtears will occur, and no blood will be shed. AquaGold is a great treatment for those who have shied away from Botox or fillers because of their fear of needles. Even though needles are used, they are much smaller and come in a more approachable manner.

No downtime

Let’s face it – you want ultra skin enhancement but don’t want the world knowing you had a treatment. No downtime is associated with AquaGold, so you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. No one will even know you had work done – unless you tell them. There’s no after-care protocol, so you can continue your lifestyle while you wait for your results to appear over the next week.

Are you ready to say goodbye to hyperpigmentation and get picture-perfect skin? Schedule your AquaGold consultation by calling 949-339-1571 or booking online.
