AquaGold: What Is It?
AquaGold is a gold-plated, hair-fine needle system to painlessly treat a combination of minor skin imperfections on the face, neck and décolletage. We use this tool with a variety of injectable products depending on the desired result.
The Purpose Of AquaGold
Here are examples of how we use AquaGold and the results we can achieve:
- Shrink pores with micro-Botox
- Smooth skin with dermal micro-hyaluronic gel such as Restylane or Juvaderm
- Improve superficial acne scarring with micro-hyaluronic gel
- Enhance laser treatments with micro-serums containing growth factors
- Brighten skin with micro-pigment reducers
How AquaGold Works
AquaGold is perfect for treating mild skin imperfections like fine lines, acne scars, and early signs of aging. The process of using this tool is called microchanneling, which treats superficial layers of the skin to provide a subtle but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone, luminosity, and general appearance.
Hair-fine, gold-plated stainless-steel needles infuse the skin with a small amount of active ingredients. This method enables the treatment of tighter spaces and the small volume of solution helps to ensure an even and natural result. Unlike a syringe, AquaGold delivers treatment using consistent depth over the skin’s surface area. The result is natural-looking rejuvenation with minimal short-term redness.
Candidates For AquaGold
AquaGold typically creates a softer, more youthful glow. It is perfect for men and women who are interested in subtle changes to their appearance. If you are looking for more dramatic changes, we offer several other treatment options including microneedling which may be more appropriate.

Schedule A Complimentary Initial Consultation
Every patient has different skin care goals. That’s why we offer complimentary initial consultations. During this consultation, we assess your skin and consider your goals to determine whether AquaGold is right for you, and if so, how many applications you’ll need to achieve your desired results.

About The AquaGold Procedure
If AquaGold is the best way to help you reach your skin care and anti-aging goals, an injection specialist will use the AquaGold applicator to deliver your custom treatment plan. When the injection specialist presses the applicator onto the treatment area, the vial releases solution through the needles directly into microchannels created in your skin. The injection specialist repeats this method until the entire area is treated.
Results To Expect
Results depend on each patient’s custom ingredient solution and treatment plan. Typically, patients see an immediate improvement of texture, tone, and luminosity. Best results from each application are usually visible within two to three weeks.
