Your face is the first place to show your age, particularly those changes around your eyes and cheeks. While it might feel like your face is “falling,” it’s not. You’re actually losing fat - just not in the places you would prefer. As your skin’s facial fat tissue, collagen and elastin production diminish, you lose volume, leaving it saggy and tired looking. Enter Allofill – the cutting-edge, minimally invasive, non-surgical solution to restoring your youthful appearance by adding volume back to your face.
Theresa Dekker spent 20 years wishing her body, her health and her life would get better. The former military veteran says she’d always been fit until 1996, when she was prescribed medication for endometriosis, and instantly gained weight. Pregnancy packed on more pounds and by the summer of 2016, tipping the scale at 241 lbs, Theresa decided she’d had enough. “I woke up and said, ‘That’s it. I’m done’,” she recalls. Immediately she made a plan to transform herself, no matter what it took. “Mentally I always knew it was going to be difficult, but I had to stay focused and not allow myself to quit,” she says. Theresa made eating lean and exercising her top priority. Eventually working up to daily jogs and visits to the gym, her hard work paid off when just three months later, she’d shed an incredible 5o lbs.

In a remote Guatemalan town, thousands wait in the hot sun for days—some in agonizing pain—desperately seeking a doctor. “We often drive in and see a half mile line of people waiting,” says Southern Surgical Arts’ Dr. Justin Gusching, DO, one of five volunteer surgeons on a recent medical mission trip with HELPS International.

Yes, your reflection in the morning mirror still resembles you, but the subtle (or sometimes not so subtle) changes you’re seeing are less and less appealing. Because your face is the most fragile and exposed part of your body, it’s likely to be the first place to betray your age.

In fact, it's the perfect time to treat yourself to a serious spring reboot at Southern Surgical Arts Med Spa.

Your comfort and satisfaction are top priorities at Southern Surgical Arts, and we continually invest in the latest technology and most effective techniques possible in order to serve you best. Adding the new Pro-Nox nitrous oxide system to our practice is the latest example of our commitment to exceptional patient care. The Pro-Nox system uses nitrous oxide as an analgesic agent to safely and effectively eliminate pain. Not to be confused with traditional anesthesia, where the requisite anesthesiologist serves as driver and nurse anesthetist as chaperone, the Pro-Nox system is patient controlled analgesia. Now you can sit in the driver's seat as fast-acting, dissociating nitrous oxide prevents any pain. Best of all, within 5-10 minutes there is absolutely no trace of chemical in your body, so you can drive safely with no risk.
Because your skin is unique, you need customized care to keep you looking your best. Sun exposure overtime, in combination with natural aging, begins to diminish your skin's youthful glow by causing discoloration, uneven skin tone, sun spots, fine lines, and poor texture. These imperfections lie both on the surface of your skin as well as below. Until now, addressing the concerns of both epidermal and dermal skin issues required different treatments and a good deal of downtime.
