Best Facial Procedures for Winter

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we are committed to helping you look and feel your best. We have developed a list of procedures designed to keep your skin healthy and vibrant during this cooler season.

FAT TRANSFERS

When you are looking for a safe and popular option for a facial rejuvenation, consider fat transfers. This procedure uses fat harvested from your own body to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, plump thinning lips, or to rejuvenate aging hands. Because the fat is from your own body, adverse reactions are minimal.

SKIN RESURFACING

Here on the Gulf Coast of Florida, harsh summer UV rays can harm your skin. So during the winter is the optimal time to help your skin recover from that damage. The procedure can drastically improve the look of your skin, revealing younger, healthier skin that’s hidden underneath the sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scars. For the most natural-looking results, stay out of the sun during the post-operative recovery.

FACELIFT

Dr. Daniel Daube is known for his “Gold Standard” in facelifts. If you’re looking for dramatic results to correct wrinkles, sagging skin, or loss of facial definition, this may be the treatment option for you. Since this surgery requires more downtime, the fall/winter months are usually the best option.

BELLAFILL

Although we have a lot of varied options for fillers, this particular choice has one amazing advantage… it lasts for five (5) years! This innovative injectable softens facial wrinkles, smile lines, and acne scars in an instant. With its unique collagen formula, the results are natural, immediate, and long-lasting.

If you are interested in trying any of these facial options to perk you up during the winter doldrums, call us today for a consultation. Call our Cosmetic Coordinator, Kim O’Neal Guy at extension 130.

Get Ready for Your Holiday Party with Injectables!

The holidays are coming up fast and you’re going to want to look your absolute best for Christmas parties, festive events and of course, the new year! If you are looking for a quick way to look younger and feel your best this holiday season, injectables may be a great treatment option for you.

Why are injectables perfect for the holidays?

One of the biggest benefits of injectables and dermal fillers is that they have a quick recovery time. Unlike other facial procedures, which can require several days or weeks of downtime for effective recovery, you can go about your daily routine after getting injectables. Although the full results may not be evident for 7-10 days, you will not waste any precious holiday time recovering from these procedures.

What are the benefits of injectables?

Injectables can be an effective way to reversing signs of aging in your face. Your wrinkles, crows feet, and additional unwanted lines can be diminished with injectables. Botox®, Dysport®, Restalyne®, Juvéderm®, and Bellafill® will have you looking years younger instantly and can help prevent future wrinkles from developing.

What are the different types of injectables?

Botox®: Botox® is one of the most popular beauty treatments. It helps to temporarily freeze the muscles in your face that are responsible for wrinkles. Botox® helps with frown lines, crows feet, lines in the nasal area, and more. It usually lasts from three to six months.

Dysport®: Dysport® also helps to relax the muscles in the face to fight wrinkles, crows feet, and frown lines. Dysport® works to help restore the elasticity in your skin that naturally deteriorates over time and can last from four to six months.

Restalyne®: Restalyne® is another dermal filler that helps with lines and wrinkles, such as the creases that develop from the outer tips of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. It uses hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body, to help stop the signs of aging. Restalyne® can last from six to nine months and show immediate improvement.

Juvéderm®: Juvéderm® is another anti-aging filler that helps to smooth lines and wrinkles in the face. It also contains hyaluronic acid which helps to maintain the elasticity in the skin. Juvéderm® can last up to a year depending on where it is injected.

Bellafill®: Bellafill® is the only FDA-approved dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth to maintain a youthful appearance for up to five years. It is used to correct nasolabial folds, which are also referred to as smile lines. Because Bellafill® is non-resorbable, it does not require reinjection

like

other dermal fillers do.
