Aphrodite Gold

Aphrodite Gold is an injectible gel that contains a combination of Atelocollagen and Polymethylmetacrylate (PMMA). It is used to correct facial wrinkles and lines, and has a long lasting effect.  Aphrodite Gold is ideal for the treatment of drooping ends of the mouth, lines around the nose, wrinkles, chin folds, lip augmentation, scars and acne.

Your skin care practitioner will inject Aphrodite Gold using a thin needle, and moving it back and forth to form tiny ducts.  Aphrodite Gold is filled into these ducts. The body absorbs the collagen, and this helps to stimulate natural collagen production. A layer of tissue is generated which allows for skin augmentation. This can take up to two months. You will notice that the wrinkles disappear completely.  The procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of correction work that is required. There is very little pain, and it usually depends on the treated area. If you need additional anesthetics, discuss this with your doctor. Aphrodite Gold contains an anesthetic that may be sufficient.

After the procedure
You can expect some redness and swelling, and these can last for about 3 days. You will notice the effects of the treatment about 2 to 3 months after receiving the injection. It is important that you relax your facial muscles for at least 3 days after the injection.  Facial movements will inhibit the working of the PMMA beads, interfering with the results that you hope to achieve.

The treatment must be carried out by a trained and experienced skin care practitioner who is specially trained in the technique to administer Aphrodite Gold. The treatment has been proven to be absolutely safe for use. You may require more than one treatment for results to be excellent, with two treatments being the norm. Your doctor will inform you about the number of treatments you require. Once the results of the injection are visible, you can expect them to last for several years. With other injections, the result is temporary because the body slowly absorbs the gel. However, with Aphrodite Gold treatment, there is no question of absorption because of the encapsulation of the PMMA beads. This leads to permanent results. Aphrodite Gold does not however, impact the appearance of new wrinkles.
