How Long Does AquaGold Last

One of the most common questions about AquaGold is how long its effects will last. The answer depends on several factors, including the type of serum used and the individual’s skin type. Most people enjoy long-lasting results from their AquaGold facial, ranging from 3-6 months. For best results, it is typically recommended to schedule follow-up appointments.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from AquaGold?

AquaGold provides a less invasive alternative to microneedling, with instant results and no recovery time.

What Is AquaGold?

AquaGold is an innovative new painless treatment that brightens the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves acne scarring for areas such as the neck and décolleté area, the face and hands, the delicate skin immediately beneath the eye, and in places you can’t apply traditional anti-wrinkle injections.

The treatment is suitable for all genders, ages, skin types, or skin issues. It is even effective at treating acne scars and hyperpigmentation!

What Are the Risks for AquaGold

There are virtually no risks related to an AquaGold treatment. You may experience slight redness up to 24 hours post-procedure or sun sensitivity.

How to Prepare for an AquaGold Appointment

As an AquaGold procedure is tailored to the specific skin issue, you should speak with one of our specialists to review any pre-appointment guidelines.

Before your appointment, you may be asked to take a break from using retinol for at least a week leading up to the procedure. Additionally, come to the clinic with clean skin – no makeup, moisturizers, etc.

Avoid sun exposure as much as possible before and after the AquaGold treatment; too much sun can interfere with healing.

What to Expect Post AquaGold Treatment

You will likely feel a slight tingling or prickling sensation during the treatment as the needles enter your skin. However, this should only last for a few seconds and is not generally considered painful. After the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red and flushed, but this usually subsides within a few hours.

AquaGold Recovery & Timeline

There is no recovery time associated with an AquaGold facial treatment. You will likely see immediate effects after your appointment. However, we do suggest that you refrain from washing your face for at least six hours after your treatment.

AquaGold FAQs

Does AquaGold hurt?

AquaGold is a minimally-invasive facial treatment that delivers rejuvenating serums through 24-karat gold-plated needles. The needles are so tiny that they can easily penetrate the skin without causing any discomfort.

Is AquaGold better than microneedling?

AquaGold is a new, cutting-edge microneedling treatment that offers many benefits over traditional microneedling. First and foremost, it improves the skin’s texture through the direct effect of the tiny needle punctures, but it also delivers specialized products through special channels in the tiny, hollowed-up microneedles directly into the skin.

This provides a much more targeted and effective treatment than traditional microneedling, which can often miss areas or result in uneven product absorption. Additionally, because AquaGold is less invasive than conventional microneedling, there is less risk of redness, swelling, or bruising.

Can you wash your face after AquaGold?

After your treatment, it’s important to follow the given instructions to ensure that the treatment is effective. We suggest that you do not wash your face for the first six hours after treatment. This provides the treatment with time to work and allows your skin to absorb all nutrients.

After those six hours, you can gently cleanse the treated area with a gentle cleanser. The day after treatment, you can resume your regular daily skin routine. These simple instructions will help you get the most out of your treatment.
