Frequently asked Questions
What is the Microgold treatment?
Designed to painlessly and effectively deliver bioactive compounds into the skin, avoiding common complications associated with traditional techniques. The MicroGold treatment has the proven ability to deliver the desired amount of biologic compounds, at a consistent depth, pain-free, and over a large surface area. This is a major advantage over the conventional syringe approach.
There is no pain, no bleeding, no micro-tears in the skin and no downtime after the procedure.
How does it work?
The MicroGold treatment creates small, almost invisible holes in the skin, which allows Botox, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and other ingredients to be easily delivered into the skin at the depth where they can benefit and create long-lasting effect. The skin absorbs the growth factors and responds by starting to renew itself. For best results, we initially recommend at least 3 treatments spaced approximately 4 weeks apart. You start seeing the result after 1-2 weeks.
Is a MicroGold Treatment Safe?
Yes, definitely! This advanced form and development of microneedling is safe and can be used in areas where laser treatments and in-depth peels usually is not performed. There is often no need for anesthesia. The microchannels created, reseals within an hour so infections after a treatment is very unusual. The surgical quality of the needles provide a structural integrity of the needle. Pure gold has a high biocompatibility with the skin and therefore reduces irritation and allergic reactions.
What is the size of the needles?
The microneedles are available in lengths of 0.25mm, 0.6mm, 1.0mm and 1.5 mm. Only 0.13 mm thick. Thinner than a human hair.
How many microneedles are there?
How is MicroGold MicroChanneling different from traditionall microneedling pens?
Unlike a microneedling pen, this treatment is relatively painless and usually requires no numbing. The purpose of MicroGold microchanneling is to microchannel and deliver treatments directly into the skin. The purpose of ordinary Microneedling is to puncture the skin to stimulate. This treatment takes the traditional microneedling treatment into a new level by simultaneously addressing common conditions such as dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.
Can the MicroGold MicroChanneling device be used multiple times?
No, MicroGold is designed and sterilized for single use only!
Why are MicroGold's titanium needles gold coated?
The surgical quality of the needles provides a structural integrity of the needle. Pure gold has a high biocompatibility with the skin and decreases therefore irritation and allergic reactions. Impurities and other metals can result in undesirable reactions.
