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 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.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
