About

AquaGold for smoother skin and fewer wrinkles

Want to rejuvenate your skin? Try the favourite treatment of some of the world’s best-known celebrities and get an AquaGold facial.

AquaGold is a micro-needling device made of fine, gold-plated needles – thinner than a human hair – to almost painlessly infuse the skin with a mix of dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections and skin boosters. This helps reduce fine lines and winkles, reduce pore size and scar appearance, and take care of discoloured areas of your skin.

The skin-boosting mix can include platelet rich plasma, vitamins, enzymes, plant extracts and small quantities of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. The combination right for you is determined by our experienced Registered Nurses based on what your skin needs most and is delivered to 600 microns deep into the epidermis layer of the skin – the perfect depth for brilliant results.

The treatment can take 1 hour to 90 minutes to ensure you get the most out of your treatment. AquaGold is minimally invasive giving significantly faster results. It is the perfect treatment for its ability to give you luscious skin directly where it’s needed within the important structural layers of the skin’s surface.

You’ll look fresh straight away. Some results may be seen from 24-48 hours post-treatment however your skin will continue to improve over a 6-week period.

What To Expect

At the time of your treatment, your experienced Registered Nurse will prepare your skin. A topical anaesthetic is available if you need it but your treatment is not expected to be painful. You may experience some blood spotting or mild discomfort during your treatment.

Your Registered Nurse will focus on any problem areas you’ve discussed and make adjustments as required.

Safety considerations are important during your AquaGold treatment session at all our clinics. Make sure you advise your technician of any medical conditions or allergies during your consultation. We will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety.

Pre Treatment Care

After your consultation, our experienced Registered Nurses will provide you with a skincare regime to prepare your skin with active ingredients for best results. A Retinol/Vitamin A serum needs to be applied for at least 2 weeks prior to your treatment.

We can’t provide treatment to you if:

• your skin is infected or you have open sores,
• you are sunburnt,
• you have active acne,
• you have raised moles or warts in the area, or
• you have had anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, waxing, depilatory creams, electrolysis or IPL/Laser within 2 weeks in the area to be treated.

The treatment is not recommended if you are pregnant or lactating or suffer from diabetes or blood clotting disorders. Let us know if this is your situation and we can recommend an alternative treatment.

If you have had a history of cold sores, your Registered Nurse may recommend a prophylactic antiviral therapy. Follow the directions for your particular antiviral medication.

Post Treatment Care

We know your skin will look amazing but don’t touch or rub your face immediately after the treatment.

Your skin may show some mild irritation/redness/erythema and you may have some swelling or weeping for a few days. You may experience light bruising or grazing after your treatment. If you have any concerns about your skin, please let us know.

It’s important that you look after your skin carefully post-treatment. To ensure best results:

•  don’t use skin care with active ingredients (hydroxy acids, Retinol and L-Ascorbic acid) for 5 days or until inflammation subsides
•  don’t use spray tans for 48 – 72 hours
•  avoid UV exposure, saunas, spas and chlorinated pools for 48 hours.

You can use makeup after 24 hours but we recommend a high-quality mineral makeup, to protect your skin from sun damage.
