What is AQUAGOLD® Treatment?

A close up of glittery gold material on a black backgroundAQUAGOLD® is a microneedling device that uses 24K gold microchannels to rejuvenate your skin. This minimally invasive treatment can be completed in about 20 minutes and has beautiful results.

You may be a good candidate for microneedling with AQUAGOLD® if you want to address:

  • Skin discoloration
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Enlarged pores

AQUAGOLD® works by creating tiny micro-injuries on the surface of the skin. Although “injury” may sound alarming, the treatment is minimally invasive. The needles are about the thickness of a strand of hair, and the channels it creates in the skin are very fine and small. These tiny skin traumas cause the skin to produce more collagen in the weeks following treatment. As you may know, collagen is the foundation of supple, elastic, smooth, and youthful skin! 

In addition to its collagen boosting power, AQUAGOLD® rejuvenates the skin with the direct infusion of neurotoxins, growth factors, vitamin-based serums, and other nourishing solutions. The circular head of gold-plated microneedles is attached to a glass vial in which we place the desired neurotoxin, solution, or serum. It is applied directly to the open channels in the skin as the treatment is performed.

You may feel a little discomfort as the treatment is completed, but most people are able to tolerate the mild sensation without a problem. Dr. Diwan can usually complete the microneedling portion of your appointment in 20 minutes.

Your face will be red after treatment, but you can apply cosmetics two hours after your appointment has ended. The redness will dissipate over the next one to two days, at which point you may start to see the initial results! The results will only get better over time as new collagen and elastin form.
