What is AQUAGOLD Micro-Infusion facial?

AquaGold uses patented micro-channeling technology to painlessly deliver comprehensive skin treatments or serums directly into the skin’s dermal (second) layer at the ideal depth for maximum effect.

As a painless alternative to microneedling, AquaGold utilizes a sterile, gold micro-needler with a reservoir to infuse a customized treatment cocktail solution underneath the skin’s surface. Depending on the specific AquaGold cocktail, we can treat the following skin concerns on the face (including the entire eye area), neck and chest.

How does aquagold technology work?

AquaGold penetrates into the superficial layers of the skin with a 24 ct gold-plated needle system. These hollow needles administer personalized solutions at a consistent and shallower depth, improving skin texture and general skin health.

AQUAGOLD fine touch, allows customized treatments depending on skin type, areas of concern, and patient goals. Common ingredients usually include Vitamin C, various serums, hyaluronic acid fillers, Botox, dermal fillers, growth factors, PRP, vitamins and skin brighteners.


What should I expect during the procedure?

Before your AquaGold micro-infusion treatment, your skin will be cleaned as the customized anti-aging cocktail is placed in the delivery device.

The device will be then pressed into your face to allow the microneedles to penetrate the skin and deliver the anti-aging products into the dermis. The device contains tiny 24K gold needles that are even smaller than a hair follicle.

AquaGold treatment is virtually painless and you can resume normal daily activity immediately after it. There is no bruising associated with this procedure, but you can expect your skin to show some redness for a couple hours.


How long do AquaGold results last?

Improvements in skin appearance can usually be noticed around 3 to 7 days after treatment, typically lasting about 3-4 months. AquaGold facials can be done as frequently as every 2 months. Having additional treatments spread out over the course of the year will significantly improve your skin’s overall appearance and help sustain your skincare goals.


Which areas of my skin can AquaGold micro-channeling be used to improve?

AquaGold micro-infusion treatments are typically used on the face, neck, chest, and hands…but it can be administered on other areas of the body. It’s particularly great for addressing the signs of aging on the décolletage (upper chest/lower neckline), where wrinkles and other skin imperfections can be more difficult to treat.


What cocktail of treatments can be administered with microinfusion?

A micro-infusion facial treatment can be used to inject a variety of active ingredients in the top layer of skin using hollow needles. Common ingredients (Vitamin C, various serums, hyaluronic acid fillers, Botox, dermal fillers, growth factors, PRP, vitamins and skin brighteners) can be used to even out skin tone, increase hydration, fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation, diminish oil production and much more.


Are AquaGold microinfusion treatments anything like microneedling?

Not really. AquaGold micro-channeling is a different treatment option designed to inject a low-dose customized cocktail directly into the skin. Microneedling, on the other hand, is used to stimulate the natural healing process of the skin to produce collagen through micro injuries. While both treatments can produce beautiful improvement of your skin, AquaGold microinfusion facial tends to offer results faster with almost no downtime.
