AQUAGOLD® fine touchFrequently Asked Questions

Is The Aquagold Facial the Same as Microneedling?
No, the Aquagold facial is not the same as traditional microneedling. While both procedures involve needles, Aquagold fine touch uses a device equipped with tiny, gold-plated needles to deliver customized serums directly into the skin, unlike microneedling, which primarily creates micro-injuries to induce collagen production.
Is The Aquagold Facial Safe for All Skin Types?
Yes, the Aquagold facial is safe for all skin types. Its gentle technique and the use of gold-plated needles minimize the risk of allergic reactions and skin irritation, making it suitable for even sensitive skin.
What Should Patients Avoid Before and After Treatment?
Patients should avoid using products with retinoids or acids and abstain from activities that may irritate the skin such as extensive sun exposure, tanning, and strenuous exercises for at least 24 to 48 hours before and after the Aquagold treatment.
Why Are The AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch™ Microchannels Made of Gold-Plated Stainless Steel?
The microchannels of AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ are made of gold-plated stainless steel to provide durability, ensure precision, and prevent skin irritation. Gold is biocompatible with human skin and has anti-inflammatory properties, which help in reducing redness and sensitivity during the treatment process.
