AQUAGOLD® RED CARPET FACIAL

The AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ Red Carpet Facial uses a patented, gold-plated micro-channeling system to painlessly deliver a customized solution into the skin.

THE RED CARPET FACIAL

The AQUAGOLD® Red Carpet Facial, commonly referred to as "The Botox Facial," is a very superficial microchanneling treatment that deposits hyaluronic acid and neurotoxin into the top layers of the skin to create a smooth texture with reduced pore size. This revolutionary technique produces a natural-appearing outcome, without any of the tell-tale signs of being injected.

Depending on the specific AquaGold cocktail, we can treat the following skin concerns on the face (including the entire eye area), neck, and chest:

  • Acne scarring

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Skin laxity

  • Uneven pigmentation

  • Dilated pores

  • Oily Skin

  • Rosacea and redness from sensitive skin

  • What do neuromodulators do?
    Neuromodulators (including Botox and Dysport) relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. These treatments combat forehead lines, glabella lines ("11's" between the brows), crows feet (around the eyes), smile lines, neck lines, and other wrinkles associated with aging. They can also be used to help sculpt and lift facial features including for a nonsurgical brow lift and a nonsurgical neck lift.
  • What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?
    While BOTOX and Dysport both use the same substance (botulinum toxin A) and are based on the same mechanism of action, the size of the molecules in the injections are significantly different. Dysport contains smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A than BOTOX. - Dysport can spread through your cells more easily - Dysport may begin working slightly faster than BOTOX - Results from Dysport and Botox last for a similar amount of time
  • How many units of Botox will I need? How many units of Dysport will I need?
    The amount of units needed can differ from person to person depending upon your desired outcome, the area of concern to be treated, the strength of the muscles in the area, and whether the treatment is for prevention or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles and their severity.
  • When will I see results from Botox and Dysport?
    Most patients can expect to notice early results of Dysport between two to five days following treatment, while results from Botox may take seven to fourteen days. The degree of muscle relation can continue to evolve for about two weeks and the results last for three to four months. The longer the BOTOX treatments have been routinely performed, the more relaxed the facial wrinkles will appear over time. Results of Dysport are similar, but often with a slightly quicker onset of action.
  • How long does Botox last? How long does Dysport last?
    Results may vary based upon the dose given, as well as on muscle strength of the area and metabolism, as our bodies metabolize (or break down) the Neuromodulators over time. Treatment to maintain your results are recommend every three to four months. Using medical grade skin care products at home as part of a daily skin care regime can help to maintain your results and improve the appearance and quality of your skin.
  • Does Botox and Dysport hurt?
    Many of us are not big fans of shots, especially needles in general. However, Neuromodulators are generally quickly injected with a minimal amount of discomfort, using the smallest needle available. Many of our patients barely notice the injections.
  • Who are good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport?
    BOTOX and Dysport have been proven safe and effective for treatment of a wide variety of patient and wrinkle types, however, the earlier the treatment is started, the more favorable the results can be. Some patients are not candidates for this type of treatment and include those diagnosed with neurological conditions or disorders affecting muscle movement, history of allergy to the botulinum toxin product, or those with unrealistic expectations from the treatment. Patients who are pregnant or nursing are discouraged from undergoing treatment.

CAN I GET AN AQUAGOLD® RED CARPET FACIAL RATHER THAN BOTOX AND FILLER?

AquaGold is not a substitute for standard neurotoxin (Botox or Dysport) or dermal filler treatments. AquaGold has no effect on movement or muscle relaxation since we are only using micro-doses of neurotoxin and dermal filler.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN HAVING BOTOX OR DERMAL FILLERS INJECTED IN MY FACE?

While the AQUAGOLD® Red Carpet Facial uses the same high-quality FDA-Approved Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers that we inject to plump lips, lift cheeks, and fill in deep lines, you shouldn’t expect to see the same kind of changes as you would with those applications. When these fillers are injected deeper into the tissues below the skin, they can restore volume. However, with AQUAGOLD®, we’re placing the hyaluronic acid in very small microdroplets throughout the skin of the entire face to smooth the actual skin layer. It’s the same product used in different ways to treat different concerns. If you want to restore or add volume to your face in addition to improving skin quality, then dermal filler injections can be performed at the same time as AQUAGOLD®.

Neurotoxin (Botox or Dysport) can be safely used to treat a variety of concerns including frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crows feet. With the AQUAGOLD® Red Carpet Facial, we’re injecting the neurotoxin in very small quantities throughout the face to improve fine lines, shrink pores, and decrease redness. It will not relax muscles to prevent wrinkles the way that neurotoxin injected into the forehead and crow’s feet does. The AQUAGOLD® Red Carpet Facial is more of a rejuvenation technique than are traditional fillers, Botox or Dysport. If you’re looking to relax wrinkles in addition to improving skin quality, Botox or Dysport injections can be performed at the same time as an AQUAGOLD® Red Carpet Facial.

THE SOLUTION TO PAIN AND ANXIETY DURING TREATMENTS:
PRO-NOX

One of the biggest concerns our Dubuque patients have when considering some of the more advanced treatments like Moxi and dermal filler is pain management. This fear is understandable; the human brain is hardwired to experience anxiety at the prospect of pain. At Faces Medspa, we make every effort to keep our patients completely comfortable before, during, and after their procedures. Fortunately, we have a powerful tool at our disposal: an innovative sedation system called Pro-Nox that’s designed to minimize both anxiety and pain.

If you're interested in learning more about how Pro-Nox can be incorporated into your comfortable treatment, call Faces Medspa today.  

DERMAL FILLER

With the use of dermal fillers, we can immediately smooth out unwanted lines; add definition to lips, cheeks, or jaw lines; and even fill in certain acne scars with little-to-no down time.
