FINDING the RIGHT SKINCARE ROUTINE for YOU!

Determining the correct skincare routine can be complicated and confusing. Over-the-counter products make significant claims, but if the chemistry of the product is not right for your skin type, the results can be devastating.

Your Skin Type … Your Schedule

Everyone is busy, so in establishing a good skincare routine, it needs to be something you can easily fit into your schedule. Enough time should be allowed to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your face, which means about 15 minutes, twice a day. Morning and evening are usually the best times for this practice.

While some skincare practices are necessary to use every day, other products should only be done once a week (such as face masks or other specialty spa treatments). Factor these treatments into your weekly or monthly schedule as determined by your aesthetician. Facials and chemical peels are beneficial for the skin, but they should only be done once per month at most. Light therapy treatments can be done more than once per month, but understand that misuse of any product or treatment may cause adverse reactions to your skin.

Good Habits Take Consistency

Experts tell us that to establish a good habit, you must follow a set routine for at least 31 days. Unfortunately, skincare is usually not one of our top priorities in our busy schedules. Omitting skincare routines can limit the effectiveness of the products we use, so be sure to make it a priority by never skipping this beginning and final step in your day. This dedication will lead to better results, but habits take time to form.

Choose Products Based on Your Skin Type

Dr. Daniel Daube has designed his own private-label skincare products that are specific to the various skin types. So, do a visual analysis of your skin to determine places you’d like to correct. Notice: Is your skin too oily … or … dry? Is your face peeling, or does it lack a natural glow? Our Aesthetician, Melissa, can help you choose products made to target your individual skincare needs. Because everyone’s skin is unique to them, we’ll use our expertise to match our various treatments to your particular routine.

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we ask that you follow the instructions on the packaging carefully. Schedule regular checkups with our Aesthetician to determine what proactive procedures may be necessary to ensure clear skin.

Dr. Daube has also designed a very successful acne program that has been used by hundreds with extremely successful results.

The BENEFITS of MICRONEEDLING with RADIOFREQUENCY(RF)

We are so very fortunate in this day and time that there are so many different facial procedures available to help us restore the look and feel of our skin. One of the most popular of the newest technologies is Microneedling with RF, which offers the benefits of making the skin look younger, but without the discomfort of other, more invasive, skincare treatments.

Simply put, Microneedling is a collagen-inducing treatment that can help minimize facial scarring and make other cosmetic improvements at the same time. The procedure involves using very fine needles to puncture the skin, and although your skin will take a short time to heal, the end result will be so rewarding, producing a radiant, healthy, and more youthful appearance.

What is Microneedling with RF?

This amazing new technology delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy directly to the face via microscopic needles. Because the procedure stimulates deeper collagen production, the skin naturally begins to tighten, which gives a more youthful appearance.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling with RF?

As you can imagine, there are many benefits to RF, the first of which helps soften wrinkles and fine lines. This technology, used over multiple treatments, can actually reverse scarring from acne as well as clear up problems with skin tone and texture.

Treatments are fairly quick, lasting only about one hour, and involve minimal pain and discomfort. As noted above, depending on your very personal skincare needs, multiple sessions may be needed to reap the full benefits of the Microneedling technology.

When you schedule a consultation with our Aesthetician at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, she will evaluate your skin to determine just how many treatments may be needed to solve your very unique and personal issues.

So remember: Microneedling with Radiofrequency can reverse the signs of aging leaving your skin younger-looking, not to mention healthier, in virtually no time at all! Utilizing such modern technology is just one of the reasons why Dr. Daniel Daube developed the slogan – Where Art and Medicine Come Face to Face© — because knowing which treatments are best for each individual is actually an art form, perfected through our more than 20 years of medical expertise in Bay County. Call us today to schedule a consult to learn more about all our cosmetic and skincare options.

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 Benefits of Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, is done for a variety of reasons. This procedure is mainly performed for aesthetic appeal, but can also address physical effects and concerns from drooping or sagging eyelids. No matter the patient’s desire (or need) for eyelid surgery, the benefits are substantial. Below we have laid out a few of the benefits of eyelid surgery.

Look Years Younger

When eyelids begin to droop and sag, primarily due to age, the effect is an older or more tired appearance. The weakened muscles create wrinkles and make eyes appear smaller and even partially closed depending on the severity of the sagging. This results in a more “mature” look and can become more noticeable over time. Correcting this condition will open your eyes, making your face look uplifted and youthful. The procedure can take years off your appearance, even without any other work done to your face.

Better Makeup Application

It can be challenging to apply makeup when your eyelids are not quite cooperating. The sagginess and droopiness can make it difficult to put on makeup as intended. The creases and fine lines can cause eyeshadow to settle in the wrong places. Mascara can wind up on the skin of your eyelids and eyeliner may look messy, uneven, and unnatural. When eyelid surgery is complete, makeup is able to be applied effortlessly and may even stay on longer.

Eliminate Physical Issues

Beauty benefits aside, eyelid surgery can help people with more extreme issues such as sight impairment and discomfort. When sagging and drooping eyelids affect everyday tasks and to-dos, beauty becomes a secondary perk. The lift from eyelid surgery can help alleviate this problem, allowing for better visibility and a return to normal functionality.

If you are over 35 years of age or have a genetic predisposition to droopy, sagging eyelids, you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery. The benefits are plentiful and the results can be remarkable. Contact Gulf Coast Facial Plastics to schedule a consultation today!

 

The Benefits of Microneedling with Radiofrequency

There are many different facial procedures that can help to restore the look and feel of your skin, but one of the most popular is Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF). Microneedling with RF offers skin care benefits, and newer, younger-looking skin, without the discomfort of other skincare treatments.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a collagen-inducing treatment that can help with facial scarring and other cosmetic improvements. This procedure involves using very fine needles to puncture the skin. Most of the time a dermaroller will be used. This tool rolls many tiny needles over your face at a time. Although your skin will take a little time to heal from the punctures, you will look radiant, healthy, and youthful.

What is Microneedling with RF?

Microneedling with RF takes the procedure one step further. During this process, the radiofrequency energy is delivered to the face via needles. The RF helps the skin tighten and stimulates deeper collagen production. The results of Microneedling with RF are more dramatic and noticeable than just Microneedling on its own.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling with RF?

Microneedling with RF has many benefits. It can help eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, reverse scarring from acne, and clear up problems with your skin tone and texture. This procedure is fairly quick, lasting only about an hour, and involves minimal pain and discomfort. Depending on your personal skin care needs, multiple sessions may be needed to reap the full benefits of the procedure. When you schedule a consultation, the professionals at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics will evaluate your skin to determine just how often you will need to come back for additional treatment

Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF) can reverse the signs of aging and have your skin looking young and healthy in no time. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure, or think that you would benefit from it, contact us at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics today to learn more.
