Achieving beautiful skin just got easier. Maia Plastic Surgery has added AquaGold® facial treatments to our lineup of skin rejuvenating procedures. AquaGold® Fine Touch is a patented microinjector device that can deliver powerful serums into the skin with 24k gold-plated microneedles for superior results.

The AquaGold facial is different than microneedling and other similar treatments. The microinjector device has 20 microneedles, actually microchannels, that are thinner than a human hair. These needles are much thinner than the typical microneedle used in collagen induction therapy and are designed to deliver custom serum treatments to the skin. The tiny needles perforate the skin, but the treatment is virtually painless and requires no downtime after the procedure. The 24k gold is hypoallergenic, which reduces the chance of skin irritation or reaction to the treatment.

Benefits of Microchanneling Treatment

While the AquaGold facial may have some similar collagen-inducing effects to microneedling, the benefits lie in the serums delivered into the skin. The 20k gold-plated microchannels can be used to introduce PRP (platelet-rich plasma), Botox®, hyaluronic acid, growth factors, peptides or nutrients superficially into the skin. Every AquaGold facial can be customized to the patient to address their specific skin concerns. Some of the benefits of microchanneling treatment include:

  • Acne treatment
  • Diminish fine lines or wrinkles
  • Increase skin firmness
  • Improve skin tone and reduce discolorations
  • Reduce appearance of large pores, scars or sun damage
  • Improve skin brightness
  • Address pigmentation concerns or rosacea

At Maia Plastic Surgery, we can tailor the AquaGold facial to address your skin goals. The collagen-inducing impact can help rejuvenate the skin, while specific serums are used to trigger skin repair to improve the overall appearance. The procedure typically takes about 20 minutes, and a series of treatments is often recommended to achieve the desired results.
