AQUAGOLD®: Revolutionary Collagen Induction Therapy

PureLee Redefined / Aquagold / AQUAGOLD®: Revolutionary Collagen Induction Therapy

AQUAGOLD’s® revolutionary new microchannel technique puts us even closer to realizing our aspiration of  smooth, vibrant, plump, and radiant skin.

Dr. Kenya Lee, Dr. Marvin Lee and the skin care professionals at PureLee Redefined are delighted to offer this transformative skin enhancing treatment.

The AQUAGOLD® Device

AQUAGOLD® is a sterile, single use device capable of delivering transformative skin care treatments for some of your most pesky skin care concerns. The tip of the AQUAGOLD® device is a spring loaded plunger that contains 20 stainless steel microchannels coated in 24 karat gold. The microchannels contain spiral groves designed to micro-dose and micro-inject therapeutics at a specific and consistent depth. Each microchannel is 600 micrometers long and 130 micrometers wide, which is smaller than the width of a human hair! The tip of the device injects the tailored skin care cocktail into the dermis when pressed against the skin. The device tip is connected to a reservoir which stores and delivers the therapeutic solution to the tip of the AQUAGOLD® device. Stainless steel provides the structural integrity necessary for the device to consistently deliver ingredients to the dermis, while the 24 karat gold coating reduces skin irritation due to the high biocompatibility of gold with human skin. So you can expect your Aquagold treatment to be comfortable and effective with no downtime!

The Therapeutic Target is the Dermis

The dermis is the target for AQUAGOLD’s® transformative power for good reason. The dermis is the layer of skin just beneath the skin surface and is made of mostly collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin give our skin strength, structure, and elasticity. Unfortunately, collagen and elastin fibers degenerate with age. The microscopic injections we deliver to the dermis stimulate collagen and elastin production which improves the overall skin health and appearance. The stimulation in collagen and elastin production is an important strategy in the battle against age-related volume loss. The dermis is also home to the hair follicle, sebaceous glands, and sweat glands. The piloerector muscles which make your hairs stand on end and control pore size can be influenced by the delivery of neuromodulators (Botox Dysport, Xeomin, Jeuveau) to the dermis: resulting in a reduction in the apparent pore size.

What therapeutics can go in the cocktail?

The composition of your AQUAGOLD® cocktail will be discussed during your skin care consultation with the professionals at PureLee Redefined and tailored to your skin care objectives. Some possibilities are :

  • Hyaluronic acid fillers to provide plumpness and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Neuromodulators like Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Jeuveau reduce the appearance of pores
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) stimulates stem cell production
  • Stem cell matrix, growth factors, vitamins and antioxidants can target hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and other signs of aging

The AQUAGOLD® difference

Skin quality is a major determining factor in perceived age. With aging comes undesired fine lines and wrinkles, deep wrinkles and folds, discoloration, crepiness, enlarged pores and more. An AQUAGOLD® facial can deliver powerful, customized  skin therapeutics to the dermis where it counts in a safe and comfortable manner and there is literally no down time! The precisely constructed delivery system also allows us to refine difficult to treat areas such as the delicate skin around the lips and eyes, the nose, and the medial cheeks.
