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.
