Aqua Gold skin resurfacing is an advanced treatment designed to address fine lines, wrinkles, and a wide range of other skin imperfections. The microneedling procedure uses tiny hollow gold needles, finer than a hair, to penetrate the skin’s surface and deliver custom nutrients, along with micro-doses of fillers or neuromodulators formulated specifically for you.
The Aqua Gold skin resurfacing is far above and beyond standard microneedling. A sterile, gold micro-needler with 30 tiny, precisely spaced needles, combined with a small container that houses a customized treatment cocktail blended to treat your unique needs. The serum can be a blend of vitamins, nutrients, or may include micro-doses of BOTOX or hyaluronic acid. Once your custom formula is created, the hollow needles deliver the cocktail into your skin at the dermal level.
By injecting the serum at the dermal level, skin imperfections such as excess oil production, hyperpigmentation, and redness associated with rosacea can be reduced. The micro-needler has the added benefit of triggering higher levels of natural collagen production. The advanced technology and Aqua Gold’s ability to address multiple skin imperfections will produce improved skin tone and texture, and a more youthful, fresh, rejuvenated look.
If you have an uneven skin tone, aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, or other skin flaws, Aqua Gold skin resurfacing is the gold standard in advanced microneedling. Dr. Hu will meet with you to address your specific skincare concerns and determine if Aqua Gold is right for you. Although Aqua Gold is a safe treatment for most people, if you have a bleeding disorder, or take blood-thinning medicines, be sure to let Dr. Hu know your medical history so he can develop a custom skin rejuvenation treatment to match your needs.
At Valencia Plastic Surgery, we provide a full array of technologically-advanced skincare treatments. Dr. Hu and his team understand skin conditions and skincare from a medical point of view and can customize a treatment plan that is designed to help you look and feel your best. We are committed to ensuring our patients receive the best care while they are with us, and the majority of our patients come to us from personal referrals.
When you arrive for your procedure, your skin will be cleansed. Once the custom solution is inserted into the device, it is then applied to the facial area being addressed. Multiple microneedles will penetrate the skin and create tiny open channels so the anti-aging and skin refining nutrients can be delivered deep into the dermis. The treatment is painless so no anesthetic is needed, but a topical numbing cream can be applied for greater comfort.
While you may experience some redness, there is zero recovery time needed for Aqua Gold. You are free to return to your normal routine following your treatment.
Aqua Gold skin resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure and can be performed in the comfort of our luxury private offices.

The side effects associated with Aqua Gold skin resurfacing are minimal. You may experience a mild reaction to the serum delivered via the microneedles. The majority of the serum reactions are minor and disappear in 24 hours. If you have questions about potential side effects, Dr. Hu will gladly take the time to answer all of your questions and concerns.
The needles are very tiny and typically do not cause pain when penetrating the skin’s surface. A topical anesthesia is usually not necessary but can be applied to ensure your comfort.
Typically, most patients see results in three to seven days. With proper care of your skin, a single treatment can last up to four months. Additional treatments can be performed to continue to improve the skin’s overall appearance. Your treatments should be spaced at least one month apart.
Yes, the Aqua Gold treatment is safe. Your epidermis will remain intact. The tiny microchannels that are penetrated with the needles heal within 24 hours, and the gold needles are far less likely to cause a reaction in the skin – one of the benefits of this advanced skin rejuvenation treatment.
