The Aquagold facial is a variation on traditional microneedling, that uses 20 patented, 24k pure gold-plated surgical grade stainless steel needles to create micro-channels in the skin combined with a customizable cocktail of highly effective skincare and injectables, increasing it’s permeability, leaving the skin hydrated, plumped, and glowing.
AquaGold is the perfect finishing touch to any injectable treatment or as part of your monthly skincare maintenance regimen, and is a favorite before Red Carpet and special events. The treatment is painless, quick and has no downtime, perfect for patients who want to feel refreshed but are short on time.
BOTOX® applied into the micro-channels (not the muscle) helps shrink pores on the face. This is the only recognized treatment that has an actual physical effect on pore size. Growth factors stimulate the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as increase elasticity and enhance texture, tone, and luminosity on the face, neck, and chest. Pigment reducers curb the skin's melanin response to sun exposure. Combined with sun block and sunscreen, this approach can reduce discoloration on many exposed areas. Small amounts of dermal filler can subtly help to plump, and smooth the skin, creating a more even skin tone.
Numbing is not necessary for an Aquagold Facial, but some patients request to do so. An AquaGold Facial can last between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated and the products being used. The Face, Neck and Chest can all be treated in an Aquagold Facial. Although there are no visible wounds after the treatment, the process does involve fine needles penetrating the skin, so the treated areas should be kept clean and out of the sun for 48 hours for best results.
We recommend a series of at least six sessions, with maintenance sessions every few months, in order to maintain ideal results. However, micro-channeling can be used as a one-time treatment by anyone who wants glowing skin for an upcoming event.
Results take about a week to develop and peak two weeks after the treatment is completed. For this reason, we recommend planning at least two weeks ahead of a special event to ensure your complexion will look radiant.
