AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch™
A revolutionary skin care delivery system, AQUAGOLD® is a unique microinjector device with very fine, hollow, gold-coated needles. This small, handheld device allows for the easy delivery of a variety of anti-aging skin care products to the deeper layers of your skin, offering enhanced results.
What Is AQUAGOLD?
AQUAGOLD is a cutting-edge microchannel microinjector that delivers advanced skin care products directly to the deeper layer of skin just under the dermis. The AQUAGOLD device includes 20 ultra-fine microneedles that are thinner than a human hair, each designed with a hollow spiral for precise delivery of a variety of skin treatments.
In addition to delivering skin treatments below the skin’s surface for enhanced results, AQUAGOLD can also deliver micro-doses of BOTOX® and facial fillers.
AQUAGOLD vs. Microneedling
One of the primary differences between traditional microneedling and AQUAGOLD is that traditional microneedling needles are solid and work by stimulating collagen production. Products like PRP can be applied topically to the skin immediately following microneedling, however.
AQUAGOLD, on the other hand, uses very fine needles with a hollowed spiral, allowing skin care products like PRP and many others to be delivered directly below the dermis during treatment. AQUAGOLD can also deliver to a more precise depth of the skin than traditional microneedling.

Areas of Treatment
AQUAGOLD is most commonly used as a rejuvenation treatment on the face, neck, décolletage and backs of the hands. It is able to treat a wide range of skin concerns related to aging, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Acne scars
- Loss of facial volume
Am I a Candidate?
The ideal candidate for AQUAGOLD should be in good overall health and wish to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, acne scars and other skin imperfections.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have an active skin infection or active acne, AQUAGOLD may not be the best treatment option for you.
How AQUAGOLD Works
AQUAGOLD is a customized anti-aging treatment device that allows a variety of personalized skin care treatments to reach the deeper layers of your skin, where they can have the most dramatic effects. In addition to offering the direct benefits of these fully customizable skin care products, AQUAGOLD also triggers your skin’s natural healing process and the production of important proteins like collagen and elastin.
Just some of the products that can be used in an AQUAGOLD treatment include:
- Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane®
- Antioxidants like vitamins C and E
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
- Growth factors
Directly after your AQUAGOLD treatment, your skin may appear slightly red and swollen, but these side effects are typically mild and should fade away on their own over the next few hours or days. Most people begin to see AQUAGOLD results within 2 to 3 weeks of their treatment, which continues to develop over the coming weeks and months.
How much does AQUAGOLD cost?
The cost of AQUAGOLD can range from around $500 to $1,000, depending on the size and number of treatment areas tailored specifically to give you the best result.
Is AQUAGOLD painful?
Because AQUAGOLD uses ultra-fine needles thinner than a human hair, this treatment device is virtually pain-free.
How long does AQUAGOLD last?
AQUAGOLD results can last 3 to 6 months, depending on the specific skin products used.
Is AQUAGOLD worth it?
AQUAGOLD is a highly effective and completely customizable treatment that can yield long-lasting results with little to no downtime. Most people who get AQUAGOLD are pleased with their results and continue to get maintenance treatments to keep their same great results.
However, note that BOTOX and fillers may yield more dramatic results, depending on your goals.
