Kybella Double Chin Treatment
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that improves the appearance of fat below the chin in adults. Kybella treatments at Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery destroy fat cells with deoxycholic acid, which the body naturally produces. By treating the "submental fat" below the chin, Kybella in Birmingham, Alabama gives your neck, chin and lower face more a contoured profile — without the double chin.
Injections with Dysport® are used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. With just a series of very small injections between and over the eyebrows, Dysport stops the signal that goes from the nerve to the muscles (which reduces muscle activity) and temporarily prevents the contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
Repeated contractions of the muscles between your eyebrows cause the skin to furrow. As the skin ages and elasticity declines, frown lines can become persistent. Xeomin® is FDA-approved to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. The botulinum toxin type A found in Xeomin acts on muscles and nerve endings to stop muscles fibers from contracting.
As hyaluronic acid levels diminish and the skin loses volume over time, Restylane® gives you the power to influence your appearance. Products of the Restylane Family of Injectable Gels are injected into the skin to restore volume and correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. Restylane is FDA-approved for lip enhancement for those 18 and older.
The newest additions to the Restylane family are Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk. Restylane Lyft provides a subtle, natural-looking lift to visibly "sagging" cheeks and precisely corrects lines, folds and wrinkles on both sides of the nose and mouth. With Restylane Silk at Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery, you can expect a smooth, natural look with precise shape and definition that just hasn't been possible — until now!
Sculptra® Aesthetic addresses an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms. Sculptra helps to restore your skin's inner structure and increase facial volume with long-lasting results by stimulating the production of your own natural collagen. Our Birmingham, Alabama cosmetic surgery professionals use Sculptra to correct facial folds and wrinkles and folds in the smile lines (between your nose and mouth), laugh lines (the lines framing your mouth) and chin wrinkles.
Juvéderm Collection of Fillers
Juvéderm XC is proven effective for smoothing moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to last up to a year.
Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable gel is the first filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, temporarily reversing the signs of aging with a subtle, instant and long-lasting lift.
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With Radiesse® wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That's because Radiesse's unique formulation stimulates the production of new collagen, which results in increased volume for natural-looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
FDA-approved for the correction of smile lines, Bellafill® is a unique injectable filler consisti9ng of bovine collagen and biocompatible microspheres (which are not resorbed by the body). Results with Bellafill are visible with the very first treatment as the microspheres, and the collagen they attract, work to form a natural support system and strengthen the layers of your skin.
A dermal filler as unique as you are, Belotero Balance® replaces hyaluronic acid lost during the natural aging process, softening lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Belotero's unique properties allow it to adapt to your facial contours for a soft and even correction. Belotero is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
When injected just below the surface of the skin, Hylaform® adds volume to the skin, helping to smooth unwanted lines and wrinkles. Hylaform is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that is found in human skin and throughout the body. Results are immediate, and patients can walk away rejuvenated with the results clearly visible on their face.
