Frequently asked questions:
How much does Aquagold cost?
The Aquagold treatment starts at $600, but can be an added on feature to another cosmetic procedure for $500. It can be added during Botox and Juvéderm filler injections, as well as Clear+Brilliant treatments to lower the Aquagold treatment cost. Additional skin modifying solutions, such as hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, will add to the Aquagold facial cost.
How long does Aquagold facial last?
Results can be seen immediately, but are mostly seen within 3-7 days after treatment and typically last approximately 3-4 months. The procedure can be done as often as every 1-3 months, doing several treatments throughout the year will continue to improve overall appearance of skin. This does NOT replace a normal botox or filler treatment!
Does Microneedling break down filler?
The microneedling treatment allows for controlled induction of growth factor serums, or hyaluronic acid, into the skins self-repair process by creating micro injuries in the skin. It is not recommended to have microneedling until at least 2 weeks after Botox and 4 weeks after a filler injection, like Juvéderm.
Is Microneedling better than Botox?
Both microneedling and Botox injections are safe and effective for patients with all skin types. Depending on the patient needs, you may even recommend both, using microneedling to improve the surface and deeper condition of the skin, with Botox injections to help improve results longer term.
