Aquagold Facial Reviews
"Dr. Alford is hands down the most amazing plastic/reconstructive surgeon out there. I was involved in a terrible accident that left me in a coma with MAJOR facial trauma from the bed of an 18 wheeler. I was so scared to wake up and dive into the medical world but Dr. Alford made me feel not only in the best medical skilled hands, but so comfortable and that I one day could return to what I once looked like before the wreck. If anyone wants to see truly MIRACLE before and after photos at the hands of Dr. Alford, please reach out. If anything ever came up again, I wouldn’t go anywhere except Dr. Alford. Can’t recommend him enough! Ps: if you love dogs, his service dog, Sam, is the best add on to the office. 10/10!"- H.P. / Facebook / May 05, 2019

The Aquagold Facial, also known as the Botox facial, is a patented treatment that utilizes a micro-infusion delivery to provide a completely customizable facial treatment.
The Aquagold® facial procedure is a quick and easy procedure resembling microneedling that uses customized serum cocktails using a combination of products such as dermal fillers, Botox and vitamins to treat signs of aging such as:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrink large pores
- Soften and smooth skin texture
- Reduce redness
- Plump skin
- Enhancing youthful natural glow
- Rejuvenate the face, neck, décolletage and hands
- Improve skin hydration
What to expect?
The Aquagold® treatment will take less than 45 minutes to administer. The majority of patients report little to no pain after receiving the treatment. During your appointment with Alford Facial Plastic Surgery, Ashleigh will conduct a thorough consultation to learn about you, understand your aesthetic goals, and create a customized serum cocktail that is unique to you. After the treatment, it is normal to experience a little redness at the treatment area, which should subside within a few hours.
We recommend that you not wash your face or wear any makeup until the day following your treatment. This allows ample time for your skin to absorb the serum properly.
Most patients notice results within 3-7 days of their first treatment. One can expect results to last between 3-6 months. In order to maintain optimal results, our team recommends continuous treatment throughout the year.
