Achieve radiant, glowing skin overnight

Aquagold uses 24-Karat gold plated needles that are finer than a strand of hair to deliver a customized mix of ingredients into the superficial layers of the skin. Our Award Winning Plastic Surgeon Team has developed the “WAVE Cocktail” – a mixture of medical grade ingredients proven to dramatically improve the skin’s appearance.

Popular Aquagold formulas used are our Brightening Complex, Anti-Aging and Pigmentation Complex and Acne and Scarring Complex.


  • Shrinks pores with micro-neurotoxins
  • Smooths skin with dermal micro-hyaluronic filler
  • Improves acne scarring
  • Enhances laser treatments with serums containing growth factors
  • Brightens skin with micro-pigment reducers
  • Minimally invasive
  • Minimal downtime 

These nearly microscopic needles painlessly create very tiny open surfaces in the skin,
delivering anti-aging and skin refining treatments deep into the dermis. The Aquagold Fine
Touch device is applied to the treatment area and the tiny needles penetrate the skin, delivering
the solution painlessly. The entire treatment takes less than 30 minutes, and involves minimal
downtime, although some patients may see slight redness and swelling for a few days at the
treatment site.

  • After products will be recommended. Do not wash your face for the first 6 hrs. You may resume your normal skin care regimen the next day.
  • Sun exposure must be avoided for at least 24 hrs after your treatment, preferably 1-2 weeks. A protective hat and sunscreen spf 30 or higher is recommended.

Following your acne treatment, you are free to go on about your daily routine without the need for any down time. Your skin may be sensitive and there might be some slight redness, but this will often fade over the next couple of days. Once your treatment is complete, you will notice a much clearer, healthier looking complexion.
