AquaGold® Fine Touch™ Facial Treatment

AquaGold Fine Touch Facial Treatments in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

AquaGold Fine Touch is a unique non-surgical device that combines microneedling with microinfusion, using a patented 24K gold needles that contains microchannels, to allow for microinfusion of a custom cocktail directly into the skin itself.This is different from microneedling where the needles are solid, and topical serums are applied onto the skin surface and allowed to soak into the skin from above. The result is smoother, brighter, more radiant skin, with less visible pores. Dr. Anita Patel commonly treated areas are face, neck, chest, and hands.

Treatment Overview

Dr. Patel creates a custom cocktail to address your specific skin needs, and this is placed into the glass AquaGold vial, and then “stamped” into the skin via the fine 24 karat gold needles. Common ingredients include Botox (which allows for shrinking of pores since it is injected into the skin) , hyaluronic acid (to plump, hydrate, and smooth), niacinamide (to brighten the complexion), PRP (for adding growth factors to improve the result even further), plain lidocaine (for comfort), and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Microinjection Vs. Microneedling?

Microneedling simply means using microneedles to create microchannels in the skin, whereas microinjection involves direct injection of products deeper into the skin through microchannels in the microneedles themselves. In microneedling, any products are applied topically into the skin and allowed to soak in to the degree they can. With microinjection, the products are delivered where they are needed while the microneedling is taking place. Both treatments stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process and lead to new collagen production.

What is Micro-Channeling?

Microchanneling refers to the creation of microfine channels in the skin using microneedles. Products can be delivered to the surface of the microchannels with the hope of it soaking in (as with microneedling), or the products can be infused directly through the microchannels into the skin (as with microinfusion using AquaGold). Both are beneficial treatments with noticeable results.

What is a Microchannel Microinjection Facial?

A microchannel microinjection facial is a type of skin treatment that uses fine microneedles to create microchannels in the skin, to allow for delivery of products directly into the skin (as opposed to applied to the skin surface, Biotech Health).

What is AquaGold Fine Touch?

AquaGold Fine Touch is a unique 1st-of-its-kind patented device, that combines microneedling with microinfusion. The AquaGold Fine Touch uses 24K gold needles that are finer than a human hair, and contains microchannels, to allow for microinfusion of a custom cocktail directly into the skin itself.

What is an AquaGold Facial?

An AquaGold facial is a microinjection facial, where a patented device using 24K gold hypoallergenic microneedles, finer than a human hair, is used to deliver a bespoke skin care cocktail (such as hyaluronic acid, Botox, vitamins, etc) directly into the skin. The downtime is minimal, while the results are noticeable and include a smoother, brighter complexion, while minimizing pores, scarring, and fine lines.

How Long Does AquaGold Last?

The results of AquaGold can last 3-6 months, the longevity of visible results depending on many factors such as what skin maintenance products are being used, consistency of sun protection, and overall starting point of the skin. Some patients benefit from a series of 3 AquaGold facials (1 per month), followed by maintenance treatments every 3-4 months.

How Much Does AquaGold Cost?

AquaGold pricing starts at $850 for full face, and greater if adding additional areas (neck, decollete, hands) or adding PRP to the custom cocktail.
