Luminous Gold Facial Rejuvenation Treatment

Using the AQUAGOLD fine-touch micro-channeling device, Dr. Mahmood’s carefully curated combination of anti-aging ingredients is delivered to the skin. The handheld device has a chamber that contains the custom anti-aging ingredients tailored to each individual patient’s needs, such as a combination of baby Botox, Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, Retinol, essential oils, and PRP.  The products are delivered just under the dermis, at a consistent depth, via 20 short, thinner-than-a-hair 24 karat gold micro-needles with channels that allow the products to seep into the skin. It can be used to treat the entire face, neck, or décolletage.

What are the benefits of the main products that are in the facial rejuvenation solution?

  • Baby Botox/Dysport: Unlike the ‘frozen appearance’ that some patients worry about with Botox injections, micro-doses of neurotoxin, or ‘baby Botox’ in the Luminous Gold Facial works on the upper layers of the skin to treat fine lines, wrinkles, scar tissue, and decrease pore size. This results in skin that is smoother and glowing with improved tone, and decreased pore size.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Well-known and effective fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid which is used to hydrate, rejuvenate, and plump the skin to give it a beautiful glow.
  • Vitamin C: A highly effective antioxidant that helps repair damaged skin cells, boosts collagen, and evens skin tone by fading dark spots and discoloration

Other ingredients that may be added to the customized treatment include retinol, PRP (platelet-rich plasma), alpha-hydroxy acids, and essential oils.

Luminous Gold Facial: How is it performed?

During your consultation, Dr. Mahmood will evaluate your skin and create a customized treatment tailored to your needs and goals. The Luminous Gold Facial is pain-free, performed in less than twenty minutes, and there is no down-time. The innovative device is single-used only, which ensures safety and sterility. This treatment can benefit patients of any age, including younger patients who may not need Botox or filler injections, patients who may be hesitant to try injectables, or patients who already receive injectables and desire an improvement in skin texture, fine lines, pore size, and overall facial skin tone. The Luminous Gold Facial can be safely combined with any facial treatment and is safe to use on patients of any ethnicity, and with any skin type (dry, combination, or oily).

The Luminous Gold Facial can be performed during lunchtime, and is the perfect treatment before an event to provide glowing, hydrated, smoother skin.

A: No! The treatment is painless, and patients do not even need topical numbing cream before the treatment unless they prefer to use it.

Q: What is the size of the needles?
A: The microneedles are 600 micrometers (0.6 mm) long and 130 micrometers (0.13 mm) wide, thinner than human hair!

Q: What is the down-time for the Luminous Gold Facial?

A: There is no down-time! Patients frequently receive the treatment during their lunch break from work, and it is perfect before an event, party, or wedding!

Q: How long do results last?

A: Results last for a few months, and patients generally receive the treatment every 4 months.

Q: Does the Luminous Gold Facial replace my Botox or filler injections?

A: No; Botox is injected into the muscle, and hyaluronic acid fillers are injected deeper into the tissue. Since the Luminous Gold Facial involves micro-Botox and superficial injections of hyaluronic acid filler, it effects the superficial layer of skin. This is why it is able to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, smooth, plump, and hydrate the skin without creating a ‘frozen’ look that many patients worry about with deeper Botox injections.
