Contrary to what some might think, AquaGold is not a separate treatment or replacement to an injectable like BOTOX®. It’s actually more like an add-on that improves the delivery of that specific injectable.
Unlike standard micro-needling services AQUAGOLD ® does not utilize an electronic device however instead utilizes a small portable vial including 20 micro-needles. These needles are substantially smaller sized than traditional needles. Measuring just 600 micrometers (0.6 mm) long and 130 micrometers (0.13 mm) broad. This is in fact thinner than a human hair!

The main advantages originate from the modified needles themselves. The needles are made from surgical grade stainless-steel just like any other typical needle.
