Microneedling has been all the rage for some time now, as a non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the skin. It can be used on nearly any area of the body that you’d like to treat acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, decreased elasticity or loss of volume and improve texture and tone.
What EXACTLY is Microneedling?
Aquagold calls it ‘microchannel mesotherapy’ – which is basically the same as microneedling. Also known as ‘skin needling’, the procedure is a nonsurgical treatment to stimulate collagen production by ‘puncturing the skin’ utilizing a device containing extremely fine needles. The response is the body’s natural healing process – increasing collagen and elastin production. When collagen and elastin are produced – new skin is formed, literally ‘grown’ and the results are more firm and improved tone and texture of the skin, and minimization of pores, blemishes and scars.
What is aquagold?
The Aquagold Fine Touch allows us to customize a solution and infuse directly into the skin through the needling process. The Aquagold device is an innovative and efficient treatment that stimulates cellular renewal in the upper layer of the skin through a gentle needling, but also allows a tailored solution, such as hyaluronic acid, is dispersed into the dermis to enhance results.
Does Aquagold Microneedling hurt?
There is little-to-no discomfort or visible side effects. The Aquagold Fine Touch device contains a grouping of tiny, hollow needles that are thinner than a strand of human hair, and it’s applied perpendicular fashion to the skin. Because of the small needles and application angle, patients experience very minimal swelling or redness, and recovery is quick. In fact, it’s so easy, we don’t even have to numb the skin, although we certainly will to ensure your comfort!

We work with each patient individually to achieve their desired results. We can address a number of skin problems with a customized and tailored approach using the Aquagold microneedling system:
- There are a number of amazing variations using the device to treat acne scarring including PRP or dermal fillers.
- Hyaluronic acid, or dermal fillers also work wonders for those who would like a subtle increase in volume, particularly around the lower face.
- For addressing lack of texture and tone, fine line and wrinkles on the face, BOTOX®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® are great options for providing a natural, gentle smoothing of the skin.
- For treating signs of aging on the forearms, hands, neck, and décolletage, microneedling with a dermal filler is a fantastic solution that results in a natural-looking increase in suppleness.
The Aquagold system works very well when coupled with other treatments such as deeper dermal filler injections or laser treatments to really enhance results.
