Turn Back the Clock and Rejuvenate Your Skin with Micro-Infusion Therapy

What if we told you we knew a safe and pain-free way to get radiant, plumper, more youthful skin with absolutely zero downtime required? If your skin is dying for some much-needed TLC, AquaGold Fine Touch may be the fountain of youth you’ve been missing.

While having your face pricked with tiny needles may not sound like a good time at first, this innovative new treatment is becoming more and more popular among celebs like Kim Kardashian and Amanda Williams, who swear by it as a sure-fire way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.

But AquaGold isn’t just for walking the red carpet. It’s also great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving acne scarring and discoloration. The end result? Improved firmness, skin texture and all-around appearance. Where do we sign up?

Answering Top Questions About AquaGold:

What Is AquaGold and How Does It Work?

AquaGold is a micro-infusion therapy that uses fine, hollow 24-karat gold needles to deliver a special blend of fillers, vitamins and other skin boosters directly into the superficial layers of your skin.

The shallow punctures create microscopic “injuries” which your body will almost instantly heal through increased collagen and elastin production. The needles are the diameter of a human hair, resulting in little to no discomfort for you!

AquaGold does not replace Botox and other fillers, which are designed to temporarily fix a specific problem. Instead, it delivers skin boosters in micro-doses, complementing all rejuvenation treatments and improving your skin’s long-term health.

How Does it Compare to Microneedling?

Microneedling and AquaGold are quite similar, but AquaGold takes your skin’s rejuvenation a step further. The needles used for microneedling are larger and are not hollow. They deliver a similar treatment by creating minor skin trauma, without injecting anything into the skin. With AquaGold’s unique blend of fillers, vitamins and antioxidants, the results will be more immediately visible.

Compared to microneedling, AquaGold is also minimally invasive, requiring much less (if any) downtime. The use of ultra-fine 24 karat gold needles reduces irritation and speeds up healing.

Despite their differences, AquaGold and microneedling actually pair very well together. AquaGold is a great way to give your microneedling regimen a boost. Likewise, microneedling can also be done to maintain the benefits of your AquaGold treatment.

What Does It Help Treat?

AquaGold can be performed on your face, chest and neck. It helps improve the overall appearance of your skin by restoring your skin to its youthful, firm appearance. AquaGold can help clear up a variety of skin problems, including:

  • Signs of aging – wrinkles, fine lines, age spots & sagging skin
  • Flat or discoloured skin – returns your skin’s natural luminosity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Oily skin and redness

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Anyone looking to target signs of aging (like sagging skin or wrinkles) is a perfect candidate for this treatment! It is also great for patients looking to plump and replenish their skin. AquaGold can be performed on all skin types.

This treatment is not recommended for those looking for drastic changes. Although the results are immediately noticeable, they are more on the moderate side. Instead, you may benefit from a more aggressive laser or IPL treatment.

What Can I Expect from A Treatment?

One session, depending on the size of your treatment area, usually takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. The entire face typically takes around 45 minutes in total.

The technician will use a hand-held device to apply the treatment. There are around 20 needles dispersed over a small, circular area. This makes it easy for the technician to hit those hard-to-reach areas! It should be virtually painless, but if you have sensitive skin, a topical numbing cream can be applied.

When your treatment is complete, your skin will be a little pink for 30 minutes or so. But right away, it should feel dewy, bright and refreshed, and should appear shadow and pigment-free.

How Soon Will I See Results and How Long Do They Last?

With micro-infusion therapies like AquaGold, you should be able to notice results immediately after your treatment. However, the best results are seen within 3 to 7 days and typically last about 3 to 4 months.

How long the results last will ultimately depend on your lifestyle, skin type and how well you take care of your skin. You can go back for touch-ups every 1 to 3 months, which will improve both the quality and longevity of your results!

Are There Any Side Effects?

Since AquaGold is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, there are virtually no risks or side effects. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience mild redness lasting less than 24 hours and sun sensitivity lasting about three days. If and when they occur, these side effects are completely manageable. Gently moisturize regularly with unscented cream and apply SPF30 if you will be in the sun.

What is The Recovery Period Like?

AquaGold is virtually pain-free and requires no downtime! Because the needles used for AquaGold treatments are so fine, your body will heal the microscopic punctures almost as fast as they occur. This makes it a great last-minute option for important events, or even a convenient lunch hour skin refresher. You’ll walk back into work and the only tip-off that you underwent any kind of treatment would be your visibly healthier and more luminous skin!

To allow the treatment to penetrate evenly, patients should avoid rigorous exercise for a full day following the treatment and hold off on washing your face for at least six hours. After that, you can return to your normal activities and skincare routine!


From the lack of downtime to the instant gratification, there’s an endless list of “pros” of booking an AquaGold treatment. The only “con” is that you’ll wish you had gotten it done sooner! With a single visit, AquaGold will give you a healthy, luminous skin tone and smoother texture. And with the long-term benefits it provides, what are you waiting for?
