Are You a Candidate for Lip Enhancement?

Would you like to rejuvenate and restore the youthful appearance of your lips? Creating more beautiful lips has been a growing trend for many years and Gulf Coast Facial Plastics has seen our numbers increase with patients who want to enhance the appearance of their lips.

Why is this procedure such a sought-after cosmetic treatment? The answer is in realizing that nothing ages a person quite like wrinkles around the mouth and thinning lips. Whether you want to reverse the signs of aging, or simply want to improve the look of your lips, Dr. Daniel Daube has many options that will improve your appearance.

Lip injections are just one cost-saving alternative that allows you to experiment with the look you desire. These soft-tissue fillers are FDA-approved absorbable materials that are injected into the lips to help smooth lines around the mouth. It’s important to note that this option may require more than one injection before results become noticeable, and the effects of soft tissue fillers are also
temporary. We only use the highest quality products, which include Restylane® Silk, Juvederm® Ultra, and Jevederm® Volbella.

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City, we work with both men and women to find the most appropriate anti-aging solutions for their specific needs.

Some people prefer to use collagen/fat transfers to rejuvenate their skin, which can help correct:

  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Aging Hands
  • Facial Creases
  • Thin Lips
  • Facial Folds

 

The tissue for your injections is harvested from an area of your body via liposuction. After it is purified, fat injections are administered with a fine needle into the skin.

After the procedure, you may notice an improvement in your fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. The area may feel tight due to the presence of the additional material, but this should subside in a few days.

Both of these substances break down naturally inside the body. The longevity of the results varies by patient, so we recommend that you schedule follow-up appointments at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City. Our team of medical professionals can help create a treatment schedule specifically designed for you.

If you are seeking more permanent lip augmentation, lip implants may prove to be a better solution for you. The most recent technology in lip implants provides a silicone that is soft and flexible making them more pliable than similar products used in the past.

Lip implants are inserted when Dr. Daube makes two small incisions (one at each corner of the mouth), and then he is able to place the implant in position. There is minimal discomfort and a shortened healing time.

So, if you’re ready for more beautiful lips, schedule a consult at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics where all your cosmetic needs are just a phone call away. Contact us today!

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.

The Best Facial Procedures for the Holidays

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s a great time to treat yourself to a gift, or more than one, that will make you feel and look better in time for all the festivities.

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we have several facial procedures we recommend.

One of the most popular and time-efficient facial beauty treatments is Botox® that works by freezing your facial muscles to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The recovery time for Botox® is incredibly quick and there is no downtime.

Although Botox® is one of the most well-known injectable procedures; it isn’t the only cosmetic solution. Dysport® and Newtox relax the muscles in the face to soften the signs of aging. These
products are also used for those pesky little lines between your eyebrows or across your forehead. Crows Feet can also be greatly minimized. All three of these products do similar things, but the
difference is in the areas of the face treated… and… results may be seen sooner than later.

Fillers are also an option for a fresher holiday look. We are proud to carry several options: Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Bellafill®.

Juvederm® works immediately to smooth out lines and wrinkles providing a more youthful appearance.

Restylane® also works immediately and is used for the creases that develop from the outer tips of the nostril to the corners of the mouth as well as the marionette lines that form just under the corners of the lips. Both Restylane® and Juvederm® smooth out the appearance of your face.

Bellafill® corrects smile lines and your youthful appearance can last up to five years. It is especially effective in treating acne scars.

Gulf Coast Facial Plastics also has “The SECRET®” to aging gracefully and gradually with our Micro-Needling procedure. Performed on all skin types, this process firms the skin, reduces pore size and wrinkles while revitalizing the skin.

And don’t forget our wide variety of chemical peels. Two we highly recommend at this time of year is the ZO® Stimulator Peel or the PCA Skin® Ultra Peel. These are perfect “perk me ups” for the stress of the holidays.

Dr. Daniel Daube, and the staff at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, wishes you the happiest of holiday seasons. Call us today to secure your appointment for a more “glowing” appearance… and… a stress-free time to pamper yourself!

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.

If you are looking for a quick and effective way to look your very best for the holiday festivities this season, injectables may be for you. They offer quick results, little to no downtime and can have your skin looking and feeling more youthful. If you want to learn more about injectables, schedule a consultation with us at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics. We can help you decide which injectable is right for you this holiday season!
