Aquagold is a very superficial microneedling procedure that deposits hyaluronic acid and fillers like Juvederm and BoAquaGoldtox into the top layers of the skin, to create a smooth texture with reduced pore size. This technique produces a natural appearing outcome, without any of the tell-tale signs of being injected. It can be used to:
- Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Shrink Large Pores
- Create a Soft, Smooth Skin Texture
- Reduce Redness
- Plump thin skin – especially around the eyes, which have very few treatment options to address crepey skin
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT AQUAGOLD
HOW MUCH DOES AQUAGOLD COST?
AquaGold is cost effective because it combines several different treatment modalities in one session. We currently charge $550 for each session of AquaGold, which includes the cost of the HA, Filler, Botox, and AquaGold.
HOW MANY AQUAGOLD TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Most patients see great results from just 1 treatment, that will last up to 6 months. Occasionally, when skin is very dry and wrinkled, we will recommend 2 treatments.
HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO OTHER TYPES OF MICRONEEDLING AND MICROBOTOX?
AquaGold is different from traditional microneedling in that:
It not only improves the texture of the skin through the direct effect of the tiny needle punctures, but also delivers specialized products through special channels in the tiny, hollowed up microneedles directly into the skin. The additional effect of the dermal fillers and Botox under the skin is what makes AquaGold unique and exciting.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN HAVING HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS INJECTED IN MY FACE?
While AquaGold uses the same high-quality FDA-Approved Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers that we inject to plump lips, lift cheeks, and fill in deep lines, you shouldn’t expect to see the same kind of changes as you would with those applications. When these fillers are injected deeper into the tissues below the skin, they can restore volume. However, with AquaGold, we’re placing the hyaluronic acid in very small microdroplets throughout the skin of the entire face to smooth the actual skin layer. It’s the same product used in different ways to treat different concerns. If you want to restore or add volume in your face in addition to improving skin quality, then dermal filler injections can be performed at the same time as AquaGold.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM HAVING BOTOX INJECTIONS?
Botox can be safely used to treat a variety of concerns including frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet. With AquaGold, we’re injecting Botox in very small quantities throughout the face to improve fine lines, contract pores and decrease redness. It will not relax muscles to prevent wrinkles the way that Botox injected into the forehead and crow’s feet does. AquaGold is more of a rejuvenation technique than are traditional fillers or Botox. If you’re looking to relax wrinkles in addition to improving skin quality, Botox injections can be performed at the same time as AquaGold.
DOES AQUAGOLD HURT OR REQUIRE DOWNTIME?
AquaGold is a very comfortable procedure which is performed without the need for any type of anesthesia or numbing. We expect patients to be able to return to normal activities right after the treatment.
