At Southern Surgical Arts, we offer a variety of injectables, including Botox & Dysport. Dr. Deal, Dr. Gardner, Dr. Nease, and Dr. Gusching are experts at listening to your concerns, evaluating your aesthetic needs, and then recommending a custom treatment plan that is unique to you because they do not believe that one size fits all. They partner with many injectable companies to bring you the best results to you. Trust in their experience, skill, and pursuit of the latest cosmetic advances to achieve your natural beauty.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Available to people between 18 to 65 years of age, it is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
BOTOX® is administered through a few tiny injections in one 10-minute treatment. Within days, you’ll notice improvements, which can last up to four months. To date, more than one million people have been treated with BOTOX®, manufactured by Allergan.
Dysport® is a newly FDA-approved treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the facial muscles that pull on the skin creating crow’s feet and lines on the brow. It is administered through a few tiny injections in one 10 minute treatment. Within days, you’ll notice improvements, which can last up to six months.
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body's collagen production decreases and you may begin to see wrinkles.
At Southern Surgical Arts, we use a variety of cosmetic dermal facial fillers to restore volume and fullness to the skin. These fillers correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds), the lines that develop between your nose and the corners of your mouth. The fillers we use can also be applied to the lips for a more youthful look.
We use several types of facial fillers: Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, Sculptra® Aesthetic and Perlane®. All are safe and proven to work. Restylane, JUVÉDERM, and Perlane are cosmetic facial fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Results are instantaneous and last 6-12 months. Sculptra Aesthetic is made from poly-L lactic acid, which is a long-lasting filler that gives you subtle results over time.
JUVÉDERM® is a gel of smooth consistency made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that gives skin volume and hydration. We use JUVÉDERM injectable gel by easing it under your skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” —the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
JUVÉDERM provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice, but no one will know! In fact, studies show superior results of JUVÉDERM compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid that helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by gradually replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Not an overnight miracle, Sculptra Aesthetic takes a different approach to improving lines and wrinkles. Applied through a series of injections over a three-month period Sculptra works within the deep dermis, reinforcing your skin's structure to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. The result? Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years.
Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, the lines between the nose and the corners of the mouth. It also can be used to enhance lips for a more youthful look.
Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Results are instantaneous and last about 6 months.
Restylane is free from animal proteins. This quality limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane also has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available in a dermal filler.
Treatments are typically scheduled twice a year. Having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated may enhance the lasting effect.
In contrast to BOTOX, Restylane is a natural cosmetic filler. BOTOX is a drug that temporarily blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the underlying muscles. Depending on your goals, your physician may recommend both treatments.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what's unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
