Aquagold Fine Touch Versus Microneedling: What’s the Difference?
Microneedling creates tiny, controlled injuries that trigger a healing response, stimulating an increase in collagen production. Microneedling allows topical skin care products to penetrate more deeply, and is best for clients looking for more significant improvement of acne scars, pigmentation or deep lines and wrinkles.
In contrast, Aquagold isn’t technically a microneedling procedure: it’s a “microchanneling facial” or “microfusion facial” that delivers potent ingredients into the channels created by its needles. Because its needles are thinner than those in most microneedling devices, it can safely treat sensitive areas, such as under the eyes, and the procedure typically does not cause any downtime.
How Soon Will You See Results From Aquagold, and How Long Will They Last?
You should see results like a brighter complexion, increased firmness, and a smoother skin texture after about two weeks. The effects can last up to 3-4 months.
For optimal results and increased collagen production, we recommend a series of three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart.
After that, it’s recommended to set a schedule of maintenance sessions (typically, every three to six months).
What Should You Expect Afterward?
There’s no downtime after an Aquagold treatment, but you may have some redness that dissipates quickly (typically within 30 minutes to an hour) or possible redness that normally subsides within a few days.
To allow the serum time to work, avoid washing your face for at least five hours, or until the next morning if possible.
What is Aquagold?
Aquagold Fine Touch is a microneedle device that uses 24 karat gold-plated surgical steel needles to inject small amounts of solution into the superficial layers of the skin. Unlike traditional microneedling treatments that can introduce products into your skin by making tiny pokes, Aquagold actually has microchannels that deliver the products directly into the skin.
This simple skin rejuvenation procedure improves fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and dullness to the skin on your face, neck, décolletage. SKINNEY Medspa uses a combination of Allergan brand BOTOX® and Juvéderm® to infuse real neurotoxin and hyaluronic acid deep into the skin layers. The results are brighter, plump, glowing skin, reduced fine lines and wrinkles and an overall improvement in skin tone and texture with little to no downtime.
Most patients do not report any discomfort during the procedure, but your treatment provider may add lidocaine to eliminate any discomfort. The Aquagold treatment is gentle enough that you typically won’t experience any downtime after the procedure,, though you can experience some redness at the treatment areas.
Most people are good candidates, but avoid Aquagold if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have an active infection or cystic acne outbreak.

how does botox work?
Botox and Dysport are forms of botulinum toxin. When BOTOX specialist inject Botulinum toxin in cosmetic treatments it can effectively diminish signs of aging by relaxing facial expression muscles, especially those around the eyes and brow that are notorious for developing dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, smile lines, or forehead wrinkles. Botulinum toxin relaxes these muscles by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses that direct muscles to contract (the muscle activity that causes lines to form between the brows and forehead.)

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical, anti-aging treatment that is injected directly into the muscles, usually between the brows to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is also used clinically to treat crows feet area around the eyes. When expertly administered, Botox and other proven neuromodulators such as Dysport offer an effective solution for wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging, while also being minimally invasive, highly effective. This makes BOTOX an affordable alternative to cosmetic surgery such as a brow lift or face lift and other surgical procedures that require surgeons, anesthesia, scalpels, stitches, and lengthy recovery times.
