Why try AQUAGOLD® micro-channeling in Troy?


Hydrates and repairs the skin

AQUAGOLD® micro-channeling, also known as skin boosters, are treatments that are applied painlessly into the skin at the ideal 600-micron depth micro needles to reach the dermis. Skin boosters can keep your skin supple and glowing for longer by preventing it from drying out, increasing the production of collagen, and preventing the breakdown of existing collagen.


Whitens and brightens the skin

In many cases, they include substances that our bodies already possess, and we merely apply them just below the surface to give our skin a "boost" and a more radiant appearance.



AQUAGOLD® micro-channeling Skin booster infusions can be tailored to your individual beauty concerns and skin type. Boosters are an excellent choice for achieving a glass-like radiance for your skin. They are also frequently used to administer growth factors to soften the skin, as well as to prevent wrinkles, whiten the skin for an extremely fair appearance, and provide anti-aging benefits. Antioxidants, minerals, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and other ingredients are sometimes used to achieve optimal results.

Arrive For Treatment

When you arrive, you’ll be invited to one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment rooms. We’ll give you a comprehensive review of the treatment, make sure you understand what to expect, and answer any and all of your questions.

Your provider will treat you evenly and accurately. Our team is expertly educated and trained on the best techniques to ensure we meet your high standards and expectations.

To prepare for AQUAGOLD® Micro-channaling in Troy, we suggest:
  • Avoid the use of retinoids, topical antibiotics, exfoliants, AHAs (e.g., glycolic acid) and BHAs (e.g., salicylic acid), and other topical agents that increase skin sensitivity for at least a week before your treatment.
  • Do not take anti-inflammatory and blood thinning medications, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, ginkgo, vitamin E, fish oil, etc., for at least three days to avoid interference with the natural inflammatory process.
  • Do not have any IPL/Laser procedures for two weeks prior.
  • Avoid sun exposure and all tanning methods for at least two weeks.
  • Do not wax, epilate, use electrolysis, or any other hair removal methods on the treatment area for at least a week prior.
  • Do not shave the treatment area on the day of the procedure to avoid irritation. If you have dense hair, closely shave the area the day before your appointment.
  • Ensure you are properly hydrated, as this helps the healing process.
  • Tell your specialist if you have been on Accutane in the last six months or if you are prone to cold sores.
  • Please arrive with a bare treatment area, clean of any lotion, oil, makeup, powder, perfume, or sunscreen.
AQUAGOLD Micro-channeling
Following AQUAGOLD® Micro-channaling in Troy, it is important to:
  • Avoid using anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, etc.) for at least a week. You may use Tylenol for any soreness.
  • Wait at least 4 hours, then gently wash with a gentle cleanser and cool water, using only clean hands.
  • Do NOT ice the face or use any arnica or bromelain to avoid interfering with the natural inflammatory process.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise that causes sweating, as well as saunas, jacuzzis, and steam baths for at least 48 hours.
  • Sleep on your back with your head elevated to minimize swelling or pain as needed for 2 to 3 days.
  • Do NOT pick, scratch, or scrub any peeling or flaking skin. Allow this to occur naturally, and keep skin moisturized at all times with a hyaluronic acid serum.
  • Avoid topical skincare and Retin-A products for five days or until the skin is no longer irritated.
  • Schedule follow-up and repeat treatments after 4 to 6 weeks to continue to see results!
