Highly Customizable Skin Renewal in Chicago and Winnetka at Whole Beauty® Institute

Achieving global facial rejuvenation requires treating specific areas of the face with unique combinations of medications chosen to benefit the patient. It is possible to inject a neuromodulator, such as BOTOX®, into one area, inject a dermal filler into another, and apply a laser treatment to the surface to smooth wrinkles. With AquaGold, the Whole Beauty® Institute team can create a customized blend to be introduced into the skin via microneedles plated in 24-karat gold. These microneedles are incredibly fine—smaller in diameter than a human hair—for a comfortable and fast experience.


As a non-surgical treatment, AquaGold can be customized to each patient’s needs and goals. We use it to treat signs of aging on the face, hands, neck, and decollete. It is ideal for rejuvenating especially sensitive or difficult-to-treat areas, such as the skin around the eyes and lips. Common blends employed at Whole Beauty® Institute include tiny amounts of neuromodulators (including Dysport® and Xeomin®) and injectable fillers (such as Juvederm® or Restylane®), which work together to reduce the appearance of large pores, clear acne, curb oil production, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and generate a healthy glow.
