AQUAGOLD® TREATMENT AT A GLANCE

WHAT IT DOES: The AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch™ treatment uses a stamp microneedling device with 20 24K-plated needles each containing an internal microchannel that injects a serum into deep layers of the skin. The patented microchannel injection technology activates via spring-loaded needles when the head of the device is pressed against the skin, creating a possible 2,400 microinjections in one minute (per the makers’ claims). Unlike other forms of microneedling which creates perforations in the skin along with a topical solution to be absorbed, an AQUAGOLD® facial directly deposits the solution into the skin.
For such a quick procedure, taking just around 10 minutes to perform the actual AQUAGOLD® microneedling, there is also broad customization possible in the contents of the serum. A popular, medical-grade AQUAGOLD® facial includes a patient’s own PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a neuromodulator such as XEOMIN®, and either a low to mid viscosity hyaluronic acid (HA) filler or a multi-molecular weight HA serum depending on a patient’s needs1. Lidocaine is often included in the biologic mixture to increase patient comfort. This combo accomplishes collagen induction (via AQUAGOLD® microneedling), stem cell activation (via PRP), resurfacing and plumping of texture (with HA filler or serum) and diminished pore appearance (by “freezing” the arrector pili muscles with a neuromodulator). For patients wanting to avoid the extra cost of PRP harvesting and clinical-grade neuromodulators, an AQUAGOLD® facial may be performed using the serum suite created by the brand or a mixture created by the administering physician.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: As with many popular and novel procedures, counterfeit AQUAGOLD® devices are on the market. One survey found that 37% of surgeons have encountered counterfeit medical devices with 20% having patients with adverse effects from them. AQUAGOLD® is only available for purchase by licensed injectors, and while counterfeit AQUAGOLD® devices are available online, it is not a procedure that is safe to perform without the knowledge and expertise of a medical professional.
