Introduction to


The world around us is constantly changing. New apartment complexes are popping up everywhere, cars are moving into the electric age, and it seems like there’s a new reboot or remake of a classic movie or TV show every time we turn our heads. Cosmetic treatments have been getting the same “glow-up” over the years, and at SkinHealth Centers, we are so excited to offer the revolutionary change that has come to injections with our Boston area patients with Micro-Injections. We encourage you to keep reading below to find out more about this incredible treatment and how it can benefit you!

What are Micro-Injections?

Micro-Injection is a non-invasive technique that uses nearly microscopic needles to painlessly create very tiny open surfaces in the skin, delivering anti-aging and skin-refining treatments deep into the dermis, rather than after your treatment. At SkinHealth Centers we offer our Boston patients the “gold standard” with Aquagold Microchannel Technology. The device is made up of 24-karat gold needles, each smaller than a hair follicle. Aquagold Micro-injections can be customized to suit your unique needs and deliver a variety of treatments, such as:

  • Hyaluronic Acid can effectively plump skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.  
  • Botox/Neuromodulators
  • Neurotoxins to smooth skin and tighten pores 
  • PRP, platelet-rich plasma derived from your blood, rejuvenates the skin. 

Aquagold covers a larger treatment area, allowing the injectable to be absorbed more effectively than with a single syringe. Many of our patients use it for fine lines, collagen stimulation, and skin rejuvenation, and because of its fine needles, it can be safely used and is a painless treatment in delicate areas, including:

  • Peri-oral (around the mouth)
  • Peri-orbital (around the eyes)
  • Forehead
  • Neck
  • Back of hands
  • Decollete

Note: This does NOT replace a normal botox or filler treatment! It will NOT get rid of deep lines in areas such as the forehead, glabella, nasolabial folds, or marionette lines. It can be combined with a botox or filler appointment to enhance results.

What to expect on the day of Micro-injections

When it’s time for you to get your Micro-Injections, you really shouldn’t need any sort of anesthetic, but we can offer you a numbing cream to make your experience more pleasant, however, most patients aren’t too bothered during the procedure. The provider will take the applicator, which is filled with your injectable of choice and is a little bit bigger than a lipstick tube, and press it against your treatment area. With each press, the 24 microneedles (which are thinner than a hair follicle) will quickly pierce your skin and the injectable will be inserted in precise doses. The physician will make multiple dabs over the targeted area until they are finished. 

The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes.



What’s the first Step?

The first step in getting Micro-Injections in Boston is to call your nearest SkinHealth Centers location and schedule a consultation. When you step into our boutique Medical Spa, you will be able to meet with your provider who will be able to discuss every step of the process with you. They will find out what you are looking to improve, answer all of your questions, and evaluate your treatment area. They will also ask you about your medical history to prevent any sort of unnecessary reactions or risks during your treatment or recovery. If you agree with the treatment plan they create for you, you will be able to get your Micro-Injections immediately after your consultation. If for whatever reason you would like to reschedule your appointment, our Patient Coordinator will be more than happy to help you decide the best date and time for you.


Micro-Injections Recovery

The Aquagold Micro-Injections require no downtime or recovery so you will be able to go about your day, although some patients may see redness and slight swelling for a few days at the treatment site. Results are 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, and doing several treatments throughout the year will continue to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

How Much Does Mirco-Injections Cost?


The cost of Micro-Injections in Boston is determined by a variety of factors, including which injectable you are using and the surface area that is being treated. After consulting with the physician and they evaluate your skin, you will be provided with a breakdown of the entire cost of your procedure.
