AQUAGOLD® Treatment

An AQUAGOLD® facial treatment is a medical-grade treatment and alternate to more invasive skin treatments.  The AQUAGOLD®  fine touch microchannel device is used to deliver small amounts of a custom mixed solution into the top layer of the skin.  This microchannel tool allows for customized treatments to correct issues such as fine lines and wrinkles as well as uneven skin tone. Since the products are placed in the top layer of the skin, the effects are more immediate, erasing fine lines, and evening out skin tone for a more beautiful glowing skin.

Products that can be used in Aquagold facial treatments:

Botox (neurotoxins) to help minimize pore size

Hyaluronic Acid to plump fine lines and wrinkles

Tranexamic acid, Niacinamide, Kojic acid, and Mandelic acid that can decrease darks spots

Vitamin B12, Vitamin C and Glutathione to brighten skin complexion.


Is this procedure painful?

This procedure is nearly painless. Most people say it’s a 2/10 on the pain scale, but a numbing medicine can be applied to skin beforehand to ensure maximum comfort.  The microchanneling device  is made up of 24 karat gold plated needles that are smaller in size than a hair follicle.  Through these needles, the compounded solution is delivered directly into the skin to allow for maximal absorption. 

Is there downtime?

After the treatment, there may be a slight glow to the skin treated. Depending on your skin type, you may be able to go out that day or wait for 24 hours before showing off your newly glowing skin. Patients will notice a more youthful appearance that can last up to 4-6 weeks.  The appointment will last one hour, but the procedure itself takes less than 30 minutes to perform.  It is recommended that treatment be performed every 4-6 weeks to keep improving the appearance of your skin.
