Clinical Skincare

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment in which tiny needles make microscopic skin punctures at the depth ideal for collagen induction. When you grow new collagen, it heals and supports your skin, including:


  • Shrinking large pores
  • Reducing lines and wrinkles
  • Diminishing scars
  • Smoothing skin
  • Evening out of skin tone
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks

After microneedling with the RejuvaPen™ microneedling system, Novo Medical Aesthetics infuses the skin punctures with gels, creams, and serums that stimulate beneficial effects like skin lightening, extra collagen production, and skin renewal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the “golden portion” of your blood containing super-regenerative growth factors, is another popular addition to microneedling.

What is the AquaGold facial?

The AquaGold facial is similar to microneedling, but uses hair-thin 24-karat gold-plated hollow needles to create the skin punctures and deliver a customized skin cocktail that includes:


  • Hyaluronic acid for skin-plumping
  • Botox® to smooth your lines
  • Vitamins for rejuvenation and detoxification
  • PRP to increase collagen growth

AquaGold facials can smooth, tighten, and reduce wrinkles and are most effective in the under-eye area, around your nose, and in horizontal neck lines. 

What is the VI Peel?

The VI Peel is a combination chemical peel containing alpha-hydroxy, beta-hydroxy, resorcinol, and retinoic acids. This unique prescription-only peel is gentle enough to have as often as every two weeks but yet powerful enough to dramatically enhance your skin texture, tone, and clarity.

The VI Peel can help with:


  • Age spots and other hyperpigmentation, including melasma
  • Fine lines
  • Acne
  • Acne scars


To maintain your skin, Novo Medical Aesthetics generally recommends VI Peels every month or so, along with quality clinical skincare products.
