On Pins And Needles
Imagine taking some of the most powerful, breakthrough anti-aging ingredients — Botox, dermal filler, Hyaluronic acid, even Platelet Rich Plasma — and creating a system that allows them to seep right into the skin’s second layer (a.k.a., “the dermis”), creating an immediate refreshed, supple, youthful glow.
Done and done… thanks to Pur’s latest skincare buzz known as Aquagold Fine Touch — a radical new device that allows these custom anti-aging ingredients to be “sprinkled” strategically into areas of skin that need a specific boost. According to New York dermatologist, Dr. David Goldberg, the technology has plumping power like never before. Basically, “it takes a prune and makes it look like a plum,” he explains. Quick, simple, and utterly painless, this cutting-edge technique allows the provider to inject mini doses of powerful ingredients into areas that might be too delicate for, say, a traditional deep injection of Botox.
With the Aquagold system, 24-karat-gold needles — they’re miniscule; each finer than a hair follicle — deliver product through channels of the skin in a repetitive, overlapping pattern. The resulting dewy, youthful glow is unparalleled and works on patients of any age, lasting anywhere from four weeks to six months. Better yet? Downtime and bruising are typically zilch.
On The Menu…
Botox: Micro-injections of this popular “wrinkle freeze” product shrink pores for a flawless, airbrushed appearance; it also minimizes fine lines around the lips or delicate eye area.
Dermal fillers: Infused with Juvederm (made from the natural plumper and moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid), this skin cocktail results in smooth skin that banishes crepey-ness around the eyes or neck. It’s also a perfect choice for diminishing superficial acne scars.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Skin texture is instantly improved with this treatment designed to kick-start youthful collagen rejuvenation.
