Microinfusion Treatments vs. Microneedling

February 11, 2019

The skin rejuvenation benefits of microneedling have been touted for years, but what is the difference between microneedling and its newest cousin, microinfusion? Are they the same procedure? Which should I choose for my skin care concerns? We have done the research, so you won’t have to.

What is the Difference Between Microinfusion with AquaGold and Traditional Microneedling?

Traditional microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is performed with a hand-held device to roll a series of ultra-fine needles over the surface of the skin. This process causes controlled injury to your skin below the surface, stimulating your body’s immune system to come to the rescue as well with increased production of collagen and elastin.

Microinfusion takes the concept of microneedling and enhances it to deliver a nutrient-rich cocktail of vitamins, antioxidants, small-molecule hyaluronic acid, and even BOTOX below the surface of the skin for immediately visible results.

Why is Microinfusion the Better Choice?

With microneedling, there is a minimal downtime needed while your skin peels in order to heal itself from the controlled damage created by the process. The needles used in AquaGold microinfusion are smaller, finer than a human hair. These specialized needles have a hollow center through which to deliver infusions to your skin to give it the vibrant boost it needs.

Microinfusion offers many important skin rejuvenation benefits:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars
  • Brighten skin
  • Enhance the effects of other facial treatments
  • No downtime and minimal redness following treatment
