Occasionally, clients experience a reddening of the skin that lasts approximately 24 hours. You may be sensitive to sunlight following treatment; therefore, we recommend avoiding sun exposure for 7 days and always wearing sun protection on your face.

How does an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch facial treatment work?
AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch is a micro-infusion delivery system that uses luxury 24-carat gold needles thinner than human hair to deliver a cocktail of super serums into the skin through 1,000 micro-infusion sites, promoting facial rejuvenation.
With one significant exception, this is similar to how other needle treatments work. Before applying serums, the microscopic holes created by other treatments, such as derma rollers, have already begun to heal. The AQUAGOLD® microinfusion facial device delivers the ingredients at the same time these holes are created, making the treatment highly effective.
How is AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch different from other skin needling techniques?
With other needle treatments, such as micro needling, the microscopic holes have begun to heal prior to the application of any beneficial serums.
AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch delivers the ingredients while creating the holes, making this treatment more effective than other skin needling techniques
How long do the treatment results last?
For up to two months, an AQUAGOLD® facial can improve many cosmetic skin concerns.
It can also impart a healthy glow to the skin that lasts for up to four weeks.
The results of an AQUAGOLD® facial continue to improve over the following days and weeks after treatment.
How long does treatment take?
An AQUAGOLD® treatment takes approximately 20 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
The benefits of the treatment can be achieved in just one session. However, the treatment can be performed as frequently as every four weeks or whenever you desire skin rejuvenation.
When should I have the treatment?
Treatments can be performed monthly as part of a skincare regimen, or one week to a few days prior to an event such as a skin preparation treatment.
Is there botulinum toxin in an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch treatment?
The device can deliver minute amounts of botulinum toxin below the skin's surface.
Anti wrinkle injections into the dermis of the skin, as opposed to the muscle, are referred to as "Microtox" and "Mesotox." Compared to standard botulinum toxin injections, this method treats a greater surface area of skin. The result is a softer, more natural look.
This is not intended to replace Botox and/or fillers but to complement such treatments by enhancing skin health.
How often should I have an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch facial?
The facial can be performed every 4 weeks as part of your skincare regimen or one week to a few days prior to an event such as a skin preparation treatment.
Miss Hawkes will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatment frequency for your skin type and concerns.
How soon after treatment can I go back to work?
Because the treatment requires no downtime, patients can return to work immediately.
Some people may experience mild redness for a few minutes to an hour after treatment.
Note:Patients should avoid washing their face, applying makeup, and exposing themselves to direct sunlight immediately after treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
The AQUAGOLD®Fine Touch device allowstwenty gold-plated needles, each finer than a human hair, to administer multiple injections simultaneously to the skin. Due to the tiny size of the needles, there is no pain involved.
After the treatment, please:
- Avoid washing your face for at least 8 hours
- Avoid applying makeup until the next day
- Avoid direct sun exposure
- Avoid swimming, saunas, and steam rooms

Why should AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch be chosen over derma rollers?
Other skin needling techniques, such as derma rollers, create micro-holes to which serums are then applied, but because your skin barrier is so efficient, the holes have already begun to heal before you can apply topical creams.
With Aquagold(R),before the skin begins to heal, the device delivers the ingredients directly into the skin during micro-holes creation.
What should I expect during treatment?
You will first have an in-clinic consultation with Miss Hawkes to determine which skin concerns you wish to address. Miss Hawkes will then prepare your personalised cocktail of active ingredients for administration.
She will then use a gentle motion to apply the microinfusion facial device to your skin in order to deliver the tailored solution.
You will usually notice results immediately after the process - glowing skin is achieved - and the rest of the effects will develop and strengthen over the next few days or weeks, depending on your specific solution.
