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 droplets of a custom mixed solution into the skin.  This method allows for greater absorption of the active ingredients.  This microchannel tool allows for customized treatments for individual patients in order to correct issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, decreased skin elasticity.

Is this procedure painful?

This procedure is virtually painless. Numbing medicine can be applied to skin beforehand to ensure maximum comfort.  The needling device  is made up of 24 karat gold plated needles that are smaller in size than a hair follicle.  Through these needles, a solution is delivered directly into the deeper dermis to allow for maximal absorption. 

Is there downtime?

No, after the treatment, there may be a slight glow to the skin treated.  Patients will notice a more youthful appearance that can last up to 4-6 weeks.  The procedure itself takes less than 30 minutes to perform.  The treatment can be performed every 4-6 weeks to keep improving the appearance of your skin.
