Microgold Infusion in Houston
In as little as 20 minutes, gold infusion microneedling can dramatically improve the tone, texture, and elasticity of your skin with no pain and little to no downtime. This state-of-the-art non-surgical cosmetic treatment infuses the skin with a customized blend of wrinkle reducers, hydration, and vitamins while also boosting the skin’s natural restorative properties from within. The results — more youthful skin with a healthy glow — are immediate and long-lasting.
For the latest in facial rejuvenation, Houston-area patients put their trust in Dr. Sanaz Harirchian, whose gentle touch and technical expertise ensure a comfortable experience and stunning outcome.
What is Microgold Infusion?
Gold infusion microneedling involves the use of tiny gold-plated needles to deliver a specialized blend of hydrating ingredients and wrinkle reducers directly into the skin. A microchannel microinjector with 24K pure gold surgical grade tiny needles delivers tiny doses of therapeutics 0.6 mm into the dermis of the skin. The result is collagen production, as well as smooth glowing skin. Dr. Harirchian customizes her treatment, and infuses the skin with a combination of neurotoxin to improve pore size and texture, hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate, and other beneficial additives. The result is glowing, radiant skin that can be seen in 1-2 weeks after treatment and last 3 months.
This procedure is a medical grade version of microneedling with added benefits of microdose infusion directly into the skin. Areas that are commonly treated include the face, neck and decolletage. This treatment is amazing for improving the fine lines around the delicate periorbital region, overall skin radiance throughout the face, and the fine lines and wrinkles throughout the neck.
How Does Microgold Infusion Work?
The many benefits of microgold infusion are a result of two factors. One is the specialized infusion Dr. Harirchian customizes for each patient. The other key benefit of microgold infusion is that it boosts the body’s production of collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are proteins found in the middle layer of the skin (the dermis), and help keep skin firm, plump, and elastic. The body’s natural production of both of these proteins decreases as we age, causing skin to become increasingly wrinkled and lax.1
Unlike topical treatments that mostly work on the surface of the skin, the beauty blend used in microgold infusion is delivered below the skin’s surface into the dermis where it can be absorbed for maximum impact.
Dr. Harirchian uses the elite AQUAGOLD fine touch™ applicator for microinfusion. This patented device uses hollow needles that are thinner than a human hair and plated with 24-karat gold. It is perfectly designed to deliver “microdroplets” of the customized elixir directly into the dermis. Plus, the needles themselves create tiny injuries to the skin, which stimulate the release of collagen and elastin as part of the body’s natural healing response—helping to rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level.
Benefits of AQUAGOLDⓇ Infusion
Microgold infusion provides near-instantaneous rejuvenation to skin on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, and other areas.2 Benefits include:
- Decreased pore appearance
- Reduced appearance of fine lines
- Enhanced collagen production
- Improved hydration for plumper skin
- Improved elasticity
Many patients look at microgold infusion as a step up from microneedling, as it delivers the same collagen-stimulating results with the added benefit of infusing the skin with active compounds.
The first step in microinfusion treatment is a consultation with Dr. Sanaz Harirchian, where you’ll discuss your goals. Dr. Harirchian will then design a customized blend of hyaluronic acid, neurotoxin, and other beneficial additives to be used during your treatment.
Because Dr. Harirchian uses a microinjector with microchannels, the treatment at her Houston practice is painless. Topical anesthetic is applied for 20 minutes, and the procedure generally takes about 20 minutes and requires no downtime. Patients who have very sensitive skin may experience slight redness in the treatment area during the first hour following treatment, which quickly resolves.
