Aquagold Facials at CosmeticsMD

AQUAGOLD® is a microinjection device that uses tiny 24K gold needles to apply products just below the skin’s surface. It works to plump and rejuvenate your face, neck, and décolletage (chest) by delivering micro droplets of customized ingredients to your skin and can help improve tone and texture, hydrate, minimize pores, plump the skin and boost collagen production. Results are immediate and long-term and there is NO downtime.

A luxurious and highly-customized facial

An Aquagold facial typically consists of a customized mixture of skincare ingredients tailored to our client's specific needs and skin concerns. While the exact ingredients may vary based on a consultation with your provider, here are some common components that can be found in an Aquagold facial:

  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant known for its skin brightening and anti-aging properties. It helps to even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protect the skin from UV damage.

  • B12 (Cyanocobalamin): B12 is often used in skincare to boost metabolism and promote skin health. It can help improve skin tone and texture and stimulate elastin production.

  • Micro-Botox: This is a diluted form of botulinum toxin (Botox) that is used in very small quantities. It's applied to the skin and helps to reduce the size of pores and improve skin texture without affecting muscle movement.

  • Micro-filler: Similar to micro-Botox, micro-filler is a diluted dermal filler that is applied to the skin. It provides a plumping effect and helps with hydration.

  • Growth Factors: Products containing growth factors, such as TNS A+ (a human growth factor), stimulate the skin's own cells to produce collagen and elastin, promoting a more youthful appearance.

  • Glutathione Serum: Glutathione is an antioxidant that can help brighten the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation.

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA): HA is a natural substance that helps to hydrate the skin and improve its moisture retention. In the case of SkinMedica's HA5, it contains five different forms of hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration.

    BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are injectables that uses botulinum toxin type A (OnabotulinumtoxinA) to temporarily reduce or eliminate facial fine lines and wrinkles. The FDA has approved the use of Botox® for frown lines and crow's feet, while Dysport® is approved for frown lines. It is the most widely researched and studied treatment.

  • When should I start using Botox or Dysport?
    Botox is FDA approved for women and men 18 years and older. We recommend starting treatments in your late 20s and early 30s.
  • How quickly can I get a Botox Treatment?
    We can often schedule clients within a few days of requesting an appointment, and can treat them on the same day.

  • How much does a Botox or Dysport treatment cost?
    The total cost of a Botox or Dysport is based on the number of units injected. Treatment varies by client and depends on your facial anatomy and desired result. Our experienced injectors will consult with you prior to your treatment to recommend the proper dose to help you achieve your goals. We specialize in providing our clients with a natural look (your face won't look frozen!) The enjoy savings at every visit, we recommend signing up for one of our membership programs as well as reregistering for Alle (Botox) or Aspire (Dysport) to earn points on your treatments.
  • How do Botox and Dysport work?
    Botox and Dysport are made of a purified protein that works by preventing your facial muscles from contracting by temporarily blocking the nerve signals. Because the muscles are relaxed, wrinkles are reduced.
  • Can Botox and Dysport be used with other treatments?
    YES! To improve and extend your results, we recommend combining BOTOX with other cosmetic skin procedures including chemical peels, IPL, dermal fillers, SkinPen microneedling, HydraFacials, and DiamondGlows. You can even have BOTOX added to an Aquagold facial to tighten pores and improve the appearance of reds in the skin [link to internal pages]. We also love to pair it with SkinMedica’s TNS Advanced+ serum, and/or a vitamin C and E serum, and a retinol and medical-grade SPF to use at home.
  • How do I save money on Botox or Dysport treatments?
    Be very careful of ads for “cheap” BOTOX, “faux-tox” – they are not as effective at best, and at worst can be very dangerous, causing paralysis, botulism poisoning, facial drooping, and infection. The best way to save money on your treatments is to enroll in Allē or Aspire, loyalty programs where you can earn points and rewards for savings on future treatments including… You can also become a Rose Gold member, where you can save 15% on every BOTOX treatment as well as enjoy other other member discounts and perks.
