Over the past decade, microneedling has become a staple in cosmetic medicine because of the unique advantages that it provides to patients seeking to rejuvenate their skin as well as prevent and reverse visible signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin texture and a variety of other facial imperfections. Basic microneedling utilizes an automated tool that repeatedly fires fine solid needles at a predetermined skin depth to stimulate collagen production.  AquaGold is a further evolution of this technique and integrates advanced features that were lacking in the original treatment approach. Microscopic needles are coated with 24-karat gold particles which are much less irritating and damaging to the skin compared to steel needles found in standard microneedling devices. Gold-coated needles are much better suited for skin revitalization through intrinsic body healing processes that boost collagen production for amazing and predictable facial rejuvenation. The inventors of Aquagold microneedling device dramatically expanded the boundaries for skin rejuvenation to effectively treat fine lines, post-acne scars, and other skin irregularities. If you add to this its safety profile that allows it to treat any of the Fitzpatrick skin types then it really becomes a miracle wand both for patients and doctors alike. 

AquaGold microneedling is first in its class to employ hollow gold-coated needles that not only work on the basis of mechanical collagen production but also allow a whole spectrum of serums and custom active ingredients to get infused directly under the skin instead of just being sprayed over the skin during the regular microneedling treatment. This ability to deliver vitamin and peptide-rich solutions or even platelet-rich plasma (blood plasma) directly into the deeper layers of the skin sets this new technology apart.

Our fast-paced world demands fast-paced solutions. We all want our skin to look and feel smooth and impeccable, but our lifestyle, environmental factors, and plain genetics often stand in the way. Very few of us are blessed with perfect skin that only needs a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and little blush. Most of us are engaged in an endless fight to conceal our insecurities with heavy makeup, expensive creams and lotions, and sometime invasive plastic surgery. And most of us don’t have enough spare time to go under the knife or have a harsh laser procedure done that requires significant recovery and putting life on hold.

AqauGold microneedling system is one of those rare solutions that are efficient, minimally invasive, has no downtime, and yet is highly effective with reliable outcomes for all skin types. The hand-held AquaGold device is very gentle on the skin, but at the same delivers quite a punch in terms of skin rejuvenation. The micro-needles that pierce the skin cause focal micro-damage and simultaneously inject various agents such as vitamins and collagen stimulating enzymes under the skin into the dermal layer. This combination of factors activates inflammatory pathways that lead to the activation of fibroblasts to lay down a new collagen matrix resulting in fast improvement of fine lines, acne scarring and other bothersome skin imperfections that we pick up throughout our lives. If you are trying to find an AquaGold treatment center near you, look no further than Skinly Aesthetics in New York.



With such a large variety of skin treatments on the market, it is hard to decide which one is best. 

Traditional microneedling is a clinically proven way to induce intrinsic collagen production, which overtime leads to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and acne scarring by thickening the dermis and hypodermis. Traditional microneedling works by creating micro-injuries in the skin to kick-start wound healing. By utilizing this method tiny pinpricks “irritate” and consequently through a complex pathway of signaling pathways lead to new collagen deposition at the sites of wound healing. This new collagen growth in turn improves skin texture and minimizes enlarged pores. Depending on the settings used by doctors the downtime can be 1-3 days secondary to redness, inflammation, and minimal bruising. 

Classic microneedling tools are unable to directly infuse the skin with any aqueous solution – if anything standard protocols call for spraying any of the hydrating formulations directly on the skin surface so that it can be quickly absorbed through fresh micro-wounds. However, this process is not very dependable because tiny holes tend to close in a matter of seconds and most of the rejuvenating ingredients simply dry out on the surface of the skin. 

AquaGold microneedling gradually became of the most popular options for people of all ages, due to its minimally invasive nature and virtually no recovery compared to many other similar procedures.  AquaGold fine touch provides the advantages posed by traditional microneedling alongside the benefits of intradermal infusions customized toward your individual needs. In addition, the micro-needles attached to the AquaGold device are smaller and gold-plated, causing less damage, less healing time, and fewer side effects than other types of microneedling. These needles are hollow, allowing for the delivery of this customized serum, typically containing neurotoxin, hyaluronic acid, peptides, growth factors, vitamins, and platelet-rich plasma (blood plasma). This enhanced microinfusion aspect of AquaGold facial is what sets it truly apart from its microneedling predecessor and significantly boosts rejuvenation results. It allows patients to not only get collagen production jump-started but also get intense skin hydration from within. The addition of hyaluronic acid and Botox immediately plumps the skin and tightens the pores to a smaller size, enhances elasticity and smooths out rough skin texture. These fantastic results tend to last a few months and with no downtime you own it to yourself to get started with your own AquaGold microneedling facial in NYC.

    If you are familiar with the skin-boosting properties of traditional microneedling, you can rest assured that your AquaGold facial before and after results will not disappoint. Because AquaGold mesotherapy combines the best of both worlds – namely mechanical collagen induction and microinfusion – you will enjoy outstanding and enviable results with reduced acne scarring appearance; soft, smooth and even skin texture allowing you to put your face forward without any fear. Social media has dubbed AquaGold as a “super facial” because its outcomes are so exceptional with instantly glowing and hydrated skin as if all the imperfections are erased by a magic wand. Having no downtime or intensive follow up care is an indisputable benefit of this procedure. 

    Dr. Schwarzburg whose cosmetic dermatology practice is located in NYC lists the following major benefits of AquaGold microneedling:

    • Pore size reduction via Botox infusion
    • Skin hydration with hyaluronic acid booster
    • Brightening dull skin with Vitamin C injections
    • Refined dermal texture by instant plumping and skin hydration
    • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles secondary to the combined neurotoxin and hyaluronic acid effects
    • Reduced oil and sweat production by causing the sweat glands to shrink in the presence of botulinum toxin


    The science behind general microneedling (also called collagen induction therapy) is that a series of controlled injuries caused by the tiny punctures of ultra-fine needles trigger your body’s natural wound healing properties through regenerative collagen and elastin production. The gold needle facial treatment works the same way with the added benefit of a unique microinfusion delivery system to inject a customized serum into the skin through dermal channels created by the punctures of these “thinner than a strand of human hair” micro-needles.

    This treatment is able to deliver 1,200 to 2,000 mesogold microinjections of revitalizing serums per minute, allowing patients to reap the benefits of traditional microneedling while nourishing the dermal layers with powerful ingredients including neurotoxin, hyaluronic acid, peptides, vitamin C and other vitamins, growth factors, and blood plasma.


    If you find yourself struggling with multiple skin issues such as acne breakouts, dilated pores, and uneven skin texture, and you tried all possible remedies without success, then you are a great candidate for this revolutionary medical procedure. This rejuvenating microinfusion facial is ideal for any healthy adult looking to improve the dull complexion, skin tone, and overall quality of their skin without delay, with long-lasting results and no downtime. Restoring your skin to its former youthful self no longer requires invasive surgeries with a long list of complications. Within 30 minutes of getting your AquaGold done, your skin will be loaded with powerful antioxidants that reverse the signs of aging and promote your own regenerative capacities from the inside out. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Schwarzburg will select specific ingredients to appropriately address your concerns with this advanced AquaGold microneedling technique.

    Before undergoing this procedure, be sure to consult with a board-certified physician, such as Dr. Schwarzburg in NYC to confirm that you are a candidate. While AquaGold can be customized to meet nearly anyone’s needs, it may not be appropriate for patients with a bleeding disorder or those who take blood-thinning medications. Clinical studies also demonstrated that the most common cause to prevent your from getting AquaGold procedure is personal insensitivity to the compounds injected into your skin. Mesogold reviews are universally positive from a large pool of patients.


    Because AquaGold is a gentle and minimally invasive treatment, it does not require any extensive preparation. Dr. Schwarzburg recommends discontinuing blood thinners such as Aspirin and Advil as well as the consumption of alcohol 24 – 48 hours prior to your appointment to avoid increased swelling and bruising. 


    Before your actual procedure, you will have a consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg in which all your questions and concerns will be covered, as well as your medical history reviewed to confirm that you are a candidate. Based on your skin problems Dr. Schwarzburg will establish a uniquely tailored treatment plan that will help you reach your aesthetic goals. For example, if dull skin tone is your primary cosmetic concern then the composition of your serum will be geared towards hydration and plumping by utilizing hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. On the other hand, if poor ectasia or dilated pores make you feel insecure then the emphasis will be placed on active ingredients to shrink the base of the pore, and in this case, any of the neurotoxins such as Botox will be mixed into the solution.

    Once you are a confirmed candidate, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleaned and a topical numbing cream containing lidocaine applied. After numbing for 20 – 30 minutes, the cream will be removed and your skin will be sterilized once more.

    The serums that are custom selected to target your specific skin issue are then reconstituted into the small glass applicator equipped with sterile gold-coated needles. For minimizing the pores the booster will be heavily focused on Botox concentration and for dry and weary skin it will be primarily hyaluronic acid rich. During the procedure, Dr. Schwarzburg will press the AquaGold device directly against your skin in a grid-like pattern to cover every inch of the area to be treated. This process takes approximately 20 minutes, after which you will be able to go home without restrictions. In order to enhance and maximize your results, you should not wash your face for at least 6 – 8 hours post-administration.


    One of the reasons why AquaGold Botox facial became so popular is the amount of time it takes from start to finish. In only 20 minutes of the procedure time, your skin will undergo a youthful transformation allowing you to immediately enjoy the results of tighter and firmer skin. Don’t forget to count the numbing cream as it is typically applied beforehand, which takes additional 20 – 30 minutes to settle, for a total of 40 – 50 minutes spent at your appointment. Multiple online reviews of AquaGold procedure in New York all claim that the procedure is totally worth it given the amount of time that it takes to complete. 


    AquaGold facial has an excellent clinical safety profile. Since the diameter of the needles is only a few microns, they essentially can’t puncture any vessels or cause bruising. Because the depth of the injection is precisely regulated there is virtually no pain as the needles don’t irritate surrounding nerves. After your AquaGold session, your skin will be slightly pink (similar to a subtle sunburn) and minimally swollen, with both resolving in 24 hours. It is best to avoid heat and sun exposure during this time to minimize these side effects and enjoy your healthy glow. Dr. Schwarzburg reminds his patients who live in New York that AquaGold is one of the few medical procedures where the results are instant without any kind of aftercare or follow-up, allowing you to enjoy your new self and your new sparkling skin immediately after you leave the clinic.     


    Because AquaGold is minimally invasive, there is no downtime after your appointment is over. Dr. Schwarzburg recommends that you do not wash your face for at least 6 – 8 hours post-procedure for optimal results, as the residual serum on the skin’s surface can absorb during this time. It is also advised to refrain from using strong and irritating creams containing retinoic and salicylic acids for 3-5 days to give your skin appropriate time to heal.

    You may also have slight photosensitivity for 3 – 5 days after your treatment, which is why sunscreen with SPF 50 or limited sun exposure is recommended.


    The microinfusion facial cost depends on a variety of factors including the issues that your skin has, the formulation of the serum, and your overall aesthetic goals. On average, the cost will range $700 – 1200 per one session of AquaGold in New York. Because it involves a special serum and has superior results compared to regular microneedling, the Aqua gold facial cost will be higher than the original form of microneedling. In addition, the Aqua Gold microneedling price will depend on the geographical location and the experience and level of expertise of your provider. For patients who live in New York, Skinly Aesthetics provides excellent care under the guidance of Dr. Schwarzburg and you can rest assured that you will be getting best AquaGold experience in NYC.


    The products used with the AquaGold device are customized based on each patient’s individual concerns and needs. Typical AquaGold botox formulations include Botox, hyaluronic acid gel, Retinol, Peptides, Vitamin C, antioxidants, and growth factors. The exact proportions of the components used in your serum vary depending on what the primary complaint with your skin is. For example with patients who wish to minimize acne marks and uneven skin tone, the primary focus will be on hyaluronic acid and vitamins to help plump the skin to minimize the appearance of those dents. If your makeup gets stuck in enlarged pores making them look even bigger then the therapy will be concentrated on tightening them to decrease sebum production and smooth out the skin. 


    Yes! Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are often delivered through AquaGold microneedling device to hydrate both the epidermis and the dermis ,and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While dermal fillers result in a more dramatic effect when injected directly, the delivery of hyaluronic acid via micro-channels in the superficial dermal layers allows for an overall improvement in the skin’s quality, making it look more balanced.


    Mesogold stamp can be combined with a variety of minimally invasive procedures used to rejuvenate and enhance your overall appearance be it the surface of your skin or lack of cheek definition or hollow under eyes. Neurotoxins are frequently used to relax facial muscles to help with a more dramatic reduction of fine lines and wrinkles than can be achieved by AquaGold alone. Furthermore, dermal fillers can be injected to add volume to hollow areas of the face for a plumper and more youthful appearance.

    When you have severe acne scarring or hyperpigmentation that can’t be corrected with AquaGold alone Dr. Schwarzburg recommends his New York City patients other modalities for skin resurfacing via non-ablative methods including Fraxel laser treatment and Secret RF microneedling. Both of them offer intensified collagen production to diminish the appearance of deep acne marks from the inside out by intensifying collagen production.


    Aquagold differs from traditional microneedling as it shares all the benefits found in microneedling, with the added benefit of delivering a customized serum containing peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and neurotoxins directly into the dermis through the microchannels created by its hollow gold-plated needles. This allows for collagen and elastin boosting functions as well as the additional benefit of skin nourishment. While microneedling alone can offer incredible results, it does not come with any additional benefits posed by the AquaGold treatment, such as ridding of redness, excess oil production, and other concerns.

    After a traditional microneedling session, you may experience dry skin, which is less common with gold microinfusion facial as it hydrates your dermal layers from inside throughout the procedure. The Aquagold procedure involves no downtime and will leave you with smoother, more hydrated skin, with a reduction in pore size and the appearance of fine lines.


    The number of sessions depends on your individual response to the microneedling infusion, your desired outcome, and your initial skin quality. Most patients achieve optimal results after 2 – 3 sessions spaced out by 1 – 2 weeks, though Dr. Schwarzburg recommends monthly follow-up appointments to maintain results. If your initial presentation to the clinic revolved around unsightly ice pick or boxcar acne scars etched deep into your skin then multiple AquaGold treatment sessions will be needed for optimal outcomes. 


    The tiny needles attached to the AquaGold tool are plated in 24-carat gold to help avoid irritation and are particularly efficient for patients who have sensitive skin. Gold particles additionally make piercing the skin much more efficient with less pain and damage to surrounding structures.


    Most patients who get treated by Dr. Schwarzburg at his NYC cosmetic dermatology practice admit that the treatment can be barely felt because of the gentle technique and the nano-needles used for injections. Regardless, AquaGold is performed only after a strong topical numbing cream has been applied and fully settled. Because the microneedles only penetrate the more superficial layers of the skin, the pain is virtually non-existent. In addition, the needles are inserted perpendicularly, reducing the risk of superficial tissue trauma. Overall, AquaGold does not hurt and is typically tolerated very well by patients.


    The beauty of AquaGold treatment is that you don’t have to wait around for weeks to start appreciating your results. The results are fast to show with an undeniable difference that will be seen by you, your friends, and family. Immediately after treatment patients report increased shine and glow of the skin with decreased oiliness and enhanced hydration. The skin looks nourished and taken care of with your most pesky blemishes fading away. As the effects of your infusion continue to propagate in the next 1-2 days, the moisture will be locked in deep in the dermis allowing your skin to blossom now that all the nutrients have been delivered directly under your skin. Most patients see the evolution of AquaGold effects in the next 3 – 7 days as all the boosters have finally settled and collagen production ramped up. With proper dermal care and sun protection, the results can last up to three months, and the microneedling induced collagen production continues over the following 4 – 6 weeks, leaving you with a dewy and youthful complexion.


    Aqua therapy is a minimally invasive microneedling procedure utilizing a microinfusion delivery system that allows for both the benefits of microneedling and intradermal serum delivery in one treatment. While stimulating collagen production, this form of microneedling simultaneously provides the skin with a customized serum to nourish the dermal layers based on each individual patient’s needs to hydrate, smooth, and rejuvenate the skin. One session takes no longer than 20 minutes and involves minimal side effects and downtime.



    • Minimally invasive procedure with immediate results and no downtime
    • FDA approved and cleared for superficial needling of the skin
    • Virtually painless and no serious side effects that require follow up with immediate return to normal activities.


    • May require more than one session for optimal results
    • Will not eliminate sagging skin or hyperpigmentation


    Aquagold fine touch is FDA approved and should only be administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, as it is only provided to medical professionals. Carrying out this treatment and formulating restorative serums as an unqualified individual poses a risk of injury or unwanted side effects. The proper administration of complicated serums often hinges on the vast medical experience that doctors possess – allowing poorly trained medical professionals to administer the treatment can pose a risk of injury to your skin as well as inadequate results. 


    AquaGold is an FDA-approved micro-channeling device to deliver a customized blend of products to rejuvenate and improve the quality of the skin. There are minimal side effects and limited downtime, allowing patients to resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. A critical advantage of AquaGold is that it is completely safe for all skin types. If you have a darker skin tone you have nothing to worry about as the results will be just the same with no side-effects.


    While results typically last 2 – 3 months, it is better not to view AquaGold in terms of the longevity of its results, but rather as a procedure used periodically to maintain skin quality. The active ingredients contained in serums such as Botox, hyaluronic acid and vitamins get broken down and dissolved over time, and this process depends on your intrinsic metabolism. Hence, Dr. Schwarzburg advises his patients to schedule their AquaGold maintenance treatments on a regular basis to keep reaping amazing results. 

    If incorporated into your regular skincare routine, 4-6 times a year, the results can last much longer than a one-time experimental procedure. In combination with other skin-tightening procedures such as Secret RF and Fraxel laser, as well as Botox, dermal fillers, and additional treatments, Aquagold microneedling can contribute to a long-lasting skincare regimen that will maintain the quality of your skin well over an indefinite three month time period.


    Most patients presenting to Dr. Schwarzburg for AquaGold treatment at his New York medical practice anticipate that their skin issues will be resolved with the best medical care currently available. A lot of them are frustrated with the way their skin looks after spending thousands of dollars on skin creams that don’t do much. Even the most expensive creams lack the ability to deliver their powerful ingredients directly under the skin and only stick between dead epidermal cells for a few days before being washed away. Dry skin, sun damage, acne scarring, uneven texture and laxity are all real challenges that are hard to address with non-medical care and the new edition of AquaGold microneedling definitely fills that gap. Before the procedure, you may have enlarged pores, skin impurities, fine lines and wrinkles, or acne scarring. After AquaGold, your skin is intensely hydrated with a smooth texture and lustrous shine, as well as minimized pore size and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. The appearance of acne scars will also be reduced, and your skin will be supple and firm with an overall brightened appearance.
