What Is Aquagold® Fine Touch™?
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ is an FDA-approved cosmetic delivery system that improves the look of your skin. It uses a patented handheld microinjector device with tiny hollow gold and stainless-steel needles to help treat common skin problems like:
- Fine lines or a leathery appearance
- Skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation like melasma
- Sun damage or visible effects of tobacco smoke
- Wrinkles around the eyes, across the brow, or around the lips
This procedure uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin and gently deliver small doses of anti-aging products and solvents for powerful results. It requires no downtime, and the effects are typically immediate with none of the recovery time of other more invasive procedures.
How Does an Aquagold® Fine Touch™ Treatment Work?
The Aquagold® Fine Touch™ procedure uses a 24ct gold-plated micro-injection system to penetrate the outer layer of skin while introducing clinically effective therapeutic treatments to address your skin concerns. The procedure delivers 2,400 microinjections each minute, and uses gold-plated needles to deliver micro doses of skin treatments. While this technology is most often used on the face, it can be used on other parts of the body.
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ can deliver Botox, fillers, or other nutrients directly into the underlying tissue. This is unlike microneedling; Aquagold® Fine Touch™ delivers treatments directly into the dermis before the micro injuries induced by the gentle skin penetration process begin to close up. Penetrating the skin in this way stimulates healing properties that make your skin look smoother and healthier. This makes for an incredibly effective way to rejuvenate your skin.
Why Would I Need the Aquagold® Fine Touch™ Procedure?
Some of the reasons our patients choose Aquagold® Fine Touch™ include a desire to look as young on the outside as they feel on the inside. It can deliver targeted hyaluronic acid supplements to your face, which can help if your face is looking worn, lined, or leathery due to long-term sun exposure or tobacco smoke.
If you’re worried about the fine lines in your forehead or around your eyes, Aquagold® Fine Touch™ can deliver precision amounts of Botox to visibly help your skin smooth out.
For patients with melasma (dark patches) or facial birthmarks, pigment reducers introduced with this advanced delivery system could lighten the skin in these areas to improve how you look.
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ is the patented delivery mechanism for a variety of skin treatments. It can also help treat your skin by bathing the dermis with enzymes, hormone plant extracts, and vitamins to rejuvenate aging, stressed, or tired skin. This is a whole skin rejuvenation and renewal process that many Hollywood stars use regularly. Now, you can too!
What Are the Benefits of Aquagold® Fine Touch™?
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ can help you look better and feel more confident. Some of the specific benefits include:
- Brighter glowing skin
- Reduced acne scarring
- Skin that is less oily, particularly in your T zones
- Smaller pore appearance
- Smoother healthier skin
- Stimulates collagen
While each patient’s treatment is individualized, we’ve seen the Aquagold® Fine Touch™ procedure make patients look more relaxed and visibly younger.
Does Aquagold® Fine Touch™ Hurt?
Not at all. When patients hear that tiny needles will penetrate their skin during this procedure, they assume that it’s going to hurt. This simply isn’t the case when each gold-plated needle is smaller than a single human hair.
Instead of one injection at a time, Aquagold® Fine Touch™ delivers many injections simultaneously for a faster and less painful application—all in about 20 minutes.
How Is Aquagold® Fine Touch™ Different From Microneedling?
The biggest difference between Aquagold® Fine Touch™ and microneedling is that traditional microneedling uses a solid needle, instead of one that can inject product. The microneedle does pierce the skin, but rejuvenating skin products are applied directly onto the skin’s surface afterwards.
Thanks to the ability to both stimulate the skin and simultaneously inject special medical grade ingredients beneath the skin’s surface, Aquagold® Fine Touch™ delivers a much more potent treatment into the dermis of the skin, winning over traditional microneedling, making it the next evolution in skin treatment.
What Is Recovery Like With Aquagold® Fine Touch™?
There is no downtime with Aquagold® Fine Touch™, and the results are immediate. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, Aquagold® Fine Touch™ leaves no micro-tears in the skin. This reduces the chances of bleeding or redness that create the need to miss work or avoid a public appearance until your skin heals.
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ needles are introduced at an angle into the skin, making it a gentle treatment that is also highly effective. The gold-plated stainless steel delivery system is highly compatible with human skin. This reduces any chance of an allergic reaction or skin irritation.
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ is an effective way to deliver skin rejuvenating treatments directly into the dermal layer. This treatment is excellent for stimulating renewal of collagen and elastin at the cellular layer of the skin.
How Long Does Aquagold® Fine Touch™ Microneedling Last?
Typically, one Aquagold® Fine Touch™ treatment lasts three to six months. These treatments are applied most frequently to the skin of the face, but also can have a long-lasting and dramatic effect on the backs of hands or your neck.
This treatment can address many of the issues we face with aging skin, such as:
- Acne scarring
- Loss of facial volume or a hollowed out look
- Skin laxity issues that cause sagging
- Tiny lines and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or on your forehead
