Aquagold Microchanneling Q&A

What is Microchanneling with Aquagold Fine Touch?

AQUAGOLD fine touch ™ is a patented gold-plated micro-injection system that painlessly delivers custom solutions into the skin such as Growth Factors, PRF, micro quantities of Botox, and hyaluronic acid fillers that are applied gently to the surface of the skin, with the entire treatment taking less than 20 minutes! 

What can it do?

  • Smooth texture and tone
  • Minimize appearance of pores
  • Reduce oil production
  • Reduce superficial scarring
  • Plump fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brighten complexion
  • Enhance the outcome of Laser treatments with the use of growth factors

Where can I use Aquagold?

Aquagold can be used on your face, under the eyes, around mouth as well as on the lips, the neck, chest, and the back of hands.

How Does it Work?

Aquagold Fine Touch delivers 2,400 microinjections of Hyaluronic acid filler, Botox, and other ingredients per minute into the skin with its patented single use applicator containing twenty 24K gold sterile needles finer than a human hair. The Solution we create will be customized based on each patients individual needs and desired outcome.

How does it Differ from Microneedling?

Microneedling uses a handheld device that spins at over 7000 RPM to cause micro-injuries which encourage the body to send collagen to the skins surface for healing. With a typical downtime of about 7 days, Aquagold is a much gentler treatment with only mild redness after treatment. The customized ingredients are stamped directly into the dermis by hand via screw-thread-needle technology, making it a very effective delivery system.

What can I expect after?

Results of the Aquagold facial are usually seen within one week, with some patients seeing results in as little as 24 hours. To achieve the most optimal results, three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended, with 1-2 maintenance treatments per year. However, it is safe to treat as often as every 1-3 months. There is little to no downtime, with most clients experiencing redness for an hour or 2 before it subsides. This treatment doesn’t replace Botox or fillers, as it cannot correct deep wrinkles, but Aquagold Microchanneling can be coupled with laser  or injectable treatments. It is a great way to keep your skin looking fresh and glowing with results increasing over time.

What is the cost of a treatment?

A treatment starts at $500. The cost depends on if we are adding botulinum toxin and PRF to your custom serum.
