CINCINNATI AQUAGOLD TREATMENTS
Reveal a flawless glow with this customized and painless 24K microchannel injection.
AquaGold’s patented applicator uses microchannel technology to precisely administer low dose microinjections of your customized treatment blend. The applicator’s 24K pure gold-plated surgical-grade stainless steel microchannels are each thinner than a human hair, making AquaGold the perfect solution for painless treatment of sensitive areas including the forehead, neck, back of hands, décolletee, and eye area. The result of an AquaGold treatment will be reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, stimulated collagen and elastin production, and an overall “airbrushed” glow.

WHAT TO EXPECT
A nurse will start by taking your Visia picture to get a baseline and assess your skin’s progress. Your provider will then talk with you about your options for customizing your AquaGold blend (Botox, Hyaluronic Acid Filler, and/or Platelet-Rich Plasma).
Your skin will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied 20 minutes prior to your treatment. If you are adding on Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), your blood will also be drawn and spun down to harness the platelet-rich portion. Your provider will then prepare the applicator with your customized blend and will begin “stamping” it into your skin. This is very comfortable and in total should only take 10-15 minutes depending on the area we are treating.
Your skin may be pink and there may be a small amount of pinpoint bleeding. The pinkness and bleeding will fade quickly and usually resolves within a few hours to a couple days. It is important not to apply anything other than what is recommended to the treated skin, especially for the first 12-24 hours, since the micro-injuries need time to heal. You can wash your face 12 hours after the procedure and we encourage you to use mineral-based make-up since this is healthier for the skin.
AQUAGOLD FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES IT WORK?
AquaGold uses a 24k microinjector to administer small amounts of your customized blend into your skin. This microinjector is unique because unlike microneedling where micro-injuries are made in the skin and products or PRP are applied topically, AquaGold actually injects the product or PRP into your skin each time it is “stamped” on.
WHAT ARE THE CUSTOMIZED AQUAGOLD BLENDS?
There are 3 options to choose from:
2. Botox & Hyaluronic Acid Filler
3. Botox, Hyaluronic Acid Filler and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
We also add Lidocaine to the microinjector for comfort.
IS AQUAGOLD SAFE?
Yes, AquaGold is only available to physicians and clinical practitioners and is very safe when used in this setting. The applicator is made with 24k gold-plated surgical-grade stainless steel to ensure accuracy and safety.
HOW IS AQUAGOLD DIFFERENT FROM MICRONEEDLING?
AquaGold uses a 24k microinjector to administer small amounts of your customized blend into your skin at a specific depth. This microinjector is unique because unlike microneedling where micro-injuries are made in the skin and products or PRP are applied topically, AquaGold actually injects the product or PRP into your skin at the right depth each time it is “stamped” on.
