Can microneedling with Aquagold cause vascular obstruction?

Aquagold, I think, inserts the products in the skin itself with the needles. Can this cause problems? Can it have volumizing results that resemble fillers?

No, you're not really at risk for vascular obstruction with microneedling. I do recommend adding prp for best results. Microneedling/prp is great for rebuilding collagen and improving skin quality, but won't have the same volumizing effects like a filler. I recommend seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
