What is Microtox?
Microtox is an injectable rejuvenation treatment administered by ABLMS board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Marina Buckley using a micro-infusion delivery system called AquaGold Fine Touch that uses microscopic (thinner than a strand of human hair) 24-karat gold-plated needles to microinject personalized therapeutics. A Microtox treatment at MilfordMD can help:
- Reduce pore size
- Restore skin to its youthful, firm appearance
- Smooth out wrinkles and fine lines
- Return the skin’s natural glow
- Improve the appearance of sagging skin
What’s the Difference Between Microtox and Microneedling?
Traditional microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is performed with a hand-held device to roll a series of ultra-fine needles over the surface of the skin. This process causes controlled injuries just below the surface of the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing powers to increase production of collagen and elastin.
At MilfordMD, a Microtox treatment using AquaGold Fine Touch takes the concept of traditional microneedling and enhances it by simultaneously delivering a customized rejuvenation cocktail. MilfordMD’s cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Marina Buckley, personalizes each rejuvenation cocktail to address specific skin needs and aesthetic goals, using a combination of neurotoxin (such as Dysport or Botox), hyaluronic acid filler (such as Restylane or Juvéderm), platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or other growth factors, retinol, vitamin C, antioxidants, or other nutrients, anti-aging serums or skin boosters.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Microtox?
As we get older, our entire body goes through an aging process and our skin is no exception. Collagen and elastin are what give skin its youthful, radiant appearance and at around age 25, our body stops producing vast amounts of these compounds. That’s when we start noticing fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, dryness, and more sensitive skin.
A Microtox treatment at MilfordMD can help improve these signs of aging in a natural way. Not only does a Microtox treatment stimulate more collagen and elastin production, but it also infuses the skin with a rejuvenating cocktail, customized to address individual client concerns, including:
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and lips
- Lax or thin skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Dry or dull complexion
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Microtox Treatment?
A Microtox treatment is suitable for all skin types and complexions, and ideal for adults of all ages. In line with all our elective cosmetic procedures, we do not recommend it for pregnant women. It also may not be recommended for people with certain skin conditions. Contact us to find out whether you are good candidate for Microtox treatment at MilfordMD.
What is the Downtime and Side Effects Associated with a Microtox Treatment?
There is virtually no downtime associated with a Microtox treatment at MilfordMD. The vast majority of clients can return to their daily activities as normal. Immediately after treatment, the treated area(s) may look slightly red, but the redness will subside within 24 hours. Other mild side-effects that may occur after each session include:
- Irritation in the treatment area
- Temporary pain and sun sensitivity
- Redness or peeling
With over 30 years’ experience, ABLMS board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Marina Buckley has developed proven techniques to mitigate the impact of any negative side effect.
How Long Do Results of a Microtox Treatment Last?
The results of a Microtox treatment typically last 2 to 3 months. Results can be maintained with periodic treatments.
How Much Does a Microtox Treatment Cost?
Treatments are completely personalized to each client’s specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals. A cocktail of different anti-aging ingredients is created for each individual client. At your consultation, a treatment plan will be tailored by MilfordMD cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Marina Buckley and the price of your personalized Microtox treatment will depend on the specifics of your treatment and will be determined at the time of your consultation.
