Do you ever look in the mirror and feel like your reflection doesn’t capture your youthful energy?

Thanks to the latest strides in cosmetic sciences, Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City, FL, offers a range of minimally invasive solutions to target common signs of aging with minimal to no downtime. Our expertise extends to treatments like Botox®, Dysport®, and a variety of advanced dermal fillers, providing a more accessible and convenient way to reclaim your youthful appearance.


Unlock the Potential of Botox® in Panama City, FL


When it comes to non-surgical solutions for a more youthful appearance, Botox® stands as a modern marvel in cosmetic science. Hailed for its efficacy and minimal invasiveness, Botox® has revolutionized how we approach age-related facial concerns. Here at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City, FL, we are proud to offer this transformative treatment that goes beyond just masking signs of aging—it tackles them at their source.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is not just a brand name; it represents a new frontier in cosmetic treatments. Comprised of neurotoxins that temporarily ease muscle activity, Botox® effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Commonly applied to the facial region, particularly the forehead, lips, under the eyes, and around the mouth, Botox® offers an extensive range of applications to rejuvenate your appearance. Plus, injections are simple, quick, and relatively pain-free, and the effects of the injections generally last anywhere from three to six months.


Why Botox® is Safe and Effective

Safety is paramount, and Botox® comes with an FDA seal of approval for cosmetic use. In the skilled hands of our Panama City specialists, Botox® injections are both safe and highly effective. The treatment targets specific muscles without affecting surrounding areas, providing precise control over the desired results.

Comprehensive Botox® Treatments in Panama City

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we offer a full spectrum of Botox® solutions tailored to your specific needs:

  • Erase years off your face by addressing those stubborn frown lines and wrinkles between the eyes. Our specialized Botox® treatments in Panama City offer a focused approach, making your eyes the captivating feature they’re meant to be.
  • Tired of horizontal brow furrows making you look constantly worried or stressed? We provide targeted Botox® treatments to smooth out these forehead furrows, allowing you to express yourself more freely and confidently.
  • Say goodbye to crow’s feet that can make your eyes look older than you feel. Our Botox® injections for this area are expertly administered in our Panama City location, letting your eyes shine with youthful vitality.
  • Combat those wrinkles nicknamed “bunny lines” around the nasal area. With precise Botox® injections, our Panama City specialists can make these small yet distracting lines a thing of the past.

Elevate Your Youthful Appearance with Dysport® in Panama City, FL


If you’re looking for a quick yet effective solution to combat fine lines and wrinkles, Dysport® may be the answer you’ve been searching for. Unlike Botox®, which is better suited for targeted, smaller areas, Dysport® excels in treating larger regions and often shows results more quickly. 

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City, FL, we are thrilled to offer Dysport®—an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that can cover everything from moderate to severe frown lines. This cutting-edge injectable relaxes specific facial muscles responsible for wrinkles, offering you a more youthful and relaxed appearance without the need for surgical intervention.


Dysport® has several benefits, including:

  • No downtime
  • Short treatment time
  • Softens the appearance of wrinkles in as little as 5-7 days
  • Long-lasting anti-aging benefits 


How Dysport® Treatment Works

Dysport® is injected into the facial muscles at specific points depending on what you want to correct. The injections can be made in the area just above the eyebrows and at the highest point between the eyes to remove wrinkles. If you have crow’s feet, injections are made at the corners of the eyes. Soon after the procedure, you may see a softening of fine lines and similar signs of aging in the treatment area. However, full results can take up to seven days.

Uncover the Many Facets of Dermal Fillers and Injectables

If you’re looking for more ways to achieve a refreshed, youthful look, dermal fillers offer another versatile avenue. These are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and soften creases. Designed to fulfill various cosmetic needs, these injectables can enhance lip volume, rejuvenate sagging cheeks, or even encourage collagen production for a more elastic and youthful skin texture. At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City, FL, we proudly offer a wide array of dermal filler options, each chosen for its efficacy in delivering long-lasting, highly satisfying results.

Restylane® is a 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, and marionette lines that form just under the corners of the lips. This injectable gel contains hyaluronic acid to add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in your skin. As you get older, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, which causes the skin to lose moisture, and makes it more prone to developing wrinkles.

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City, we recommend Restylane® to men and women who want:
● No downtime
● Short treatment times
● Immediate improvement
● Minimally-invasive, anti-aging treatments
● Long-lasting results

We offer eight types of this dermal filler at our practice. These include:
• Restylane®-L
• Restylane® Defyne
• Restylane® Contour
• Restylane® Kysse
• Restylane® Lyft
• Restylane® Refyne
• Restylane® Silk
• Restylane® Eyelight


Restylane® Treatment
During the treatment, a very small needle is used to inject the hyaluronic gel into the deeper layers of skin. You may feel a slight pressure as the gel enters the skin. We make several injections along each wrinkle to produce a consistent and natural result.

After the treatment, you may notice a small amount of blood at each injection site. This is normal and should clear up within an hour. Other symptoms that may occur are tenderness, bruising, and swelling around each injection site for the first 24 to 48 hours.

In clinical trials, the results from Restylane® lasted six to nine months, but this varies by patient. We recommend that our patients schedule follow-up appointments every four to six months so our team can monitor how the product is breaking down, which will signal when additional treatments are needed to maintain optimal results.

As we get older, our face begins to show signs of aging. These include wrinkles, sagging, and fine lines. When volume and fullness is lost, deep wrinkles become even more prominent. This is why many people choose to use the injectable filler, Juvéderm®, to immediately to smooth out lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Juvéderm® contains hyaluronic acid which improves skin elasticity. When the gel is injected into the deep dermis of the face, it lifts and adds volume to the skin. Juvéderm® improves the overall facial appearance, and is usually absorbed in six to nine months. Depending on the treatment, the injections can last up to a year.

At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we offer five types of Juvéderm®:
• Juvéderm® Ultra
• Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
• Juvéderm® Volbella
• Juvéderm® Voluma
• Juvéderm® Vollure

Side effects from the injections may vary. In most cases, the patient will see some slight swelling or redness at the injection site. Additionally, there may be some pain, itchiness, and discoloration. These side effects may last for a few weeks. Prior to any procedure, educate yourself as to any side effects that may occur.

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. This procedure can be effective for both men and women. Because Bellafill® is non-resorbable, it does not require reinjection like other dermal fillers do. In addition to correcting “smile lines,” Bellafill® can be used to moderate, or correct, severe acne scars on the faces of patients who are 21 years and older.

Bellafill® is a combination product, which is comprised of a local anesthetic called lidocaine and bovine collagen. The microspheres are created from a material referred to as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). The product is produced in compliance with USDA and FDA guidelines. This means that they are barely detectable by human eyes. Prior to using the product, a patient must obtain an allergy skin test. Additionally, the product should only be given when the patient is supervised by a licensed practitioner.

The results of this procedure are permanent, which means the surgical removal of collagen will be required if the patient seeks to reverse the effects.

While Bellafill® can be effective in enhancing the patient’s appearance, it’s important to remember that the cosmetic procedure can engender multiple side effects. Some of them include: Redness, bruising, pain/soreness, swelling, itching, and tenderness. Typically, bruising is mild and continues for three to seven days. The redness and swelling also tend to be mild, and occurs at the site of treatment.

Many individuals are seeking cosmetic solutions that will help them attain smooth skin. If this is the case for you, it’s important to know that Bellafill® can be uniquely beneficial. If you think Bellafill® may be right for you, contact the experts at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics today to schedule a consultation!

A double or triple chin is caused by deposits of fat in the area that starts from the tip of the chin and extends to the top of the neck. Known as submental fullness, the condition is not necessarily indicative of a person’s health status or fitness level. Having excess fat in the upper neck area is most commonly caused by genetics.

Kybella® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment for submental fat, and is formulated with a synthetic enzyme that mimics enzymes found in the digestive tract. These enzymes target fat and break down the cell membranes to release the contents. This process occurs in your body every day, and now the same process can be used to reduce a double or triple chin

What to Expect from Kybella®
Kybella® has little downtime and requires no incisions. The product is administered with a very tiny needle, and multiple injections are made directly into the submental fat of the chin and neck. The treatment area may feel slightly swollen and tender for two to three days. You should avoid rubbing the area where the injections were made to ensure the product is properly distributed in the fat tissue.

In clinical trials, participants saw a noticeable improvement in the treatment area after about 16 weeks. Once the fat was destroyed by the enzyme, men and women found they had achieved a nicely sculpted neck area. Best results are achieved in patients who receive several treatments that are scheduled approximately four weeks apart.
