AQUAGOLD® is designed to painlessly and effectively deliver bioactive compounds into the skin, avoiding common complications associated with traditional techniques.
AQUAGOLD® is a sterile device that is a small vial with a screw on cap covered with 20 tiny gold-plated, stainless -steel needles. The great thing about this treatment is that it can be customized with the ingredients that we put inside the sterile chamber to deliver exactly what the client needs directly into the intradermal layer of skin.
One of the standard “recipes” is a mixture of Botox, Juvederm, and saline. The Botox will work to tighten pores and smooth fine lines. The Juvederm will infuse the skin with hyaluronic acid which is a sterile form of the ingredient found in many moisturizers. Just like Juvederm injected into the deeper layers of tissue, the intradermal injection of the product is a water magnet and will draw water to these layers of skin creating a dewy glow.
This is advertised by the company as a pain free treatment, but About Face offers a topical numbing cream to those that would like to take no chances of discomfort. The treatment is done in about 10 minutes and there is little to no downtime. We do ask that you not wear makeup for 24 hours to ensure the skin is healed.
The effect is seen in two weeks and typically lasts for about six months. There are very few clients who would not be able to have this treatment and virtually no one who would not see great benefit from AquaGold!
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages AQUAGOLD® fine touch™?
AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ has the proven ability to deliver the desired amount of drug or biologic, just under the dermis, at a consistent depth, pain-free, and over a large surface area. This is a major advantage over the conventional syringe approach.
What is the size of the needles?
The microneedles are 600 micrometers (0.6 mm) long and 130 micrometers (0.13 mm) wide, thinner than human hair.
How many microneedles are there?
How is AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ different from other microneedle devices?
The purpose of AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is to micro channel and deliver treatments directly to the skin. The purpose of other common micro needle devices is to puncture the skin for stimulation.
Can AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ be used multiple times?
AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is designed and sterilized for single use only.
Why are the AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ needles gold-plated stainless steel?
The surgical grade stainless steel provides the structural integrity of the microneedle. Pure gold has high biocompatibility with human skin, preventing irritation and allergic responses after use. Impurities and other metals may result in unnecessary irritation.
