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!

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!
