Female model for Aquagold treatment. Wrinkles, fine lines, and skin blemishes can make your skin look dull and older. Various procedures promise to give you more youthful skin, but microneedling with Aquagold® offers more reliable results.

Aquagold harnesses the collagen-boosting powers of microneedling with the numerous benefits of specialized serums, the volume-enhancing properties of fillers, and the muscle-relaxing effects of neurotoxins for a high-quality result you can visibly see.

There are several ways that this procedure can help you achieve the skin health you want.

What Is Aquagold?

Aquagold is a minimally invasive micro-injection system that uses fine gold-plated needles to create microchannels in the treatment area. The needles reach the ideal depth of 600 microns, entering the dermis and delivering serums, fillers, or neurotoxins right into the skin while avoiding muscles.

Gold has high biocompatibility with human skin as well, so there are fewer chances of allergic reactions or irritation than with traditional microneedling procedures.

Aquagold is a procedure that can help areas such as:

  • Around your eyes
  • Around your mouth
  • Your neck
  • Your chest
  • The back of your hands

The microneedling process of Aquagold boosts collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein that performs many functions in your body, including keeping your skin hydrated and firm. Collagen levels start to decrease once you enter your late 20s, and that can create skin laxity, which leads to wrinkles.

Microneedling with Aquagold intentionally causes trauma to the skin, forcing your body to create new and healthier skin cells over time. This collagen boost can continue to offer results for months.

Because it can create microchannels at exactly the right depth, Aquagold can also help deliver the right substances to help with your individual skin conditions and concerns.

For some, this may mean serums, while for others, it can mean dermal fillers, BOTOX®, or vitamin-rich high-quality skincare products.

Am I a Good Candidate?

You are a good candidate for Aquagold if you have conditions like wrinkles, uneven skin tone, or dull skin. You may also choose Aquagold if you just want to give your skin a boost.

It is ideal if you are in good health, do not smoke, and do not want to undergo procedures like chemical peels that require a longer recovery process.

If you have an active skin infection or active acne, or if you have medical conditions that can make it more difficult to heal, collagen problems, bleeding problems, or are pregnant or nursing, Dr. Herbstman and our skin care specialist will suggest alternative treatments.

Why Choose Aquagold over Other Treatments?

Some microneedling procedures use needles that are large and cumbersome and that do not reach the ideal depth to help with skin conditions. It can also be a more time-consuming process.

Aquagold, however, uses 20 micro-needles that are finer than human hair and can reach the dermis level necessary to trigger the collagen production and make the absorption of serums, fillers, and Botox easier.

The screw-head needle technology can make the entire process more efficient because it allows the injection of the added substances before the microchannels begin to close.

Instead of delivering neurotoxins into muscle tissue, Aquagold makes it possible to deliver them into the microchannels the needles create. This allows you to get results over larger areas of your face. The same concept applies to fillers. To do this most efficiently, Aquagold uses diluted neurotoxins and fillers.

Because of how fine the needles are, Aquagold is a good option for more delicate areas, such as around the eyes. Aquagold’s needles also slip into the skin in a perpendicular manner, unlike other microneedling options. This makes the procedure a gentler one that can still offer the right results.

Aquagold is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require a long recovery process. Most people can resume their regular activities right after the procedure and do not have to worry about many aftercare instructions.

Unlike dermal rolling, the Aquagold procedure does not create micro-tears or cause dragging on the skin, reducing the chances of discomfort or bleeding.

Another benefit that this treatment offers is the chance to treat pigmentation issues. Aquagold contains micro-pigment reducers that can brighten and whiten skin.

How Long Do the Results Last?

You can start seeing results almost immediately, but most people find it takes three to seven days to notice a change in their skin. Because Aquagold stimulates collagen production, you can continue to see improvements over the course of several weeks.

On average, results can last three to four months so for best ongoing maintenance we recommend scheduling treatment every few months to preserve optimal, lasting results.
