AquaGold Q & A

What is AquaGold?

AquaGold® is a minimally invasive microchanneling treatment to improve your skin’s appearance and texture. During an AquaGold treatment at Laguna Beach Aesthetics, Dr. O’Connell uses the patented handpiece to make tiny pinpoints in your skin’s surface. The needles on the handpiece are sterile and gold-plated, and it includes a reservoir for ingredients and infusions that you can add to your treatment.

With AquaGold, you can improve the skin on your face, neck, chest, or hands in a fast and easy 30-minute procedure. The needles are small and painless enough that you don’t need anesthesia, but Dr. O’Connell can give you a numbing cream to ease your mind. 

You might notice some slight redness after your AquaGold treatment, but it should go away quickly. You can see the full effect within a week of your treatment. 

What are the benefits of AquaGold treatments?

AquaGold treatments address many common skin imperfections that most people would prefer to eliminate. Dr. O’Connell might recommend AquaGold treatments to you if you want to treat these common aesthetic issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Loose skin
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Large pores
  • Rosacea

Dr. O’Connell can walk you through your options for added ingredients to get even more benefits from your procedure. The results last for two to three months, and you can get the treatments routinely for long-lasting better-looking skin.

Which ingredients can I add to my AquaGold treatment?

There are several ingredients available to add to the AquaGold handpiece reservoir. The micro-needler infuses them into your skin, where they can make a big difference from the inside. You can add:


In tiny amounts placed just beneath your skin, Botox can shrink pores and reduce fine surface-level lines.


Juvéderm, a dermal filler, can reduce the appearance of small scars on your skin and boost its volume.

Vitamins and Glutathione

Vitamin C, vitamin B, and glutathione can make your skin look bright and healthy.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is plentiful within your skin already, but infusing more of it hydrates and nourishes your skin.

PRP or stem cell serum

PRP or stem cell serum can encourage your skin to heal itself and grow new collagen for firmness.
