Laser Skin Resurfacing
Are you seeking smooth, healthier-looking skin? If so, consider Laser Skin Resurfacing. Laser resurfacing uses powerful yet gentle lasers to remove sun damage, age spots, blotches, scars and other imperfections from the skin. A new, smoother layer of skin is revealed as radiant as it was in the patient's youth. Recovery time is minimal. Please contact us today to learn more about laser skin resurfacing.
Our Pearl and Pearl Fractional lasers are used for patients with different types of skin damage. The Pearl laser gently removes the damaged top layer of skin, revealing healthy new skin after 3 to 4 days. The Pearl Fractional laser is normally used on a smaller surface area but reaches damaged cells deeper in the skin, stimulating the growth of vibrant new skin with fresh collagen. Fractional treatments are ideal for older, more sun-damaged and rougher skin as well as skin with deep wrinkles.
Laser Genesis Skin Therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a more youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.
Solar Genesis Skin Therapy is a pulsed light system that is exceptionally effective at treating sun spots, age spots and freckles. The most popular areas of treatment are the face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms and hands, which typically have the most sun exposure. However, virtually any part of your body can be safely treated with Solar Genesis. No topical anesthetic or gel are necessary, and just one or two treatments can yield superior results.
LimeLight™ Laser PhotoFacial is a nonsurgical procedure that can help you achieve a youthful, perfect complexion by removing lesions, rosacea, scars and other skin imperfections. During the procedure, a special, nontoxic light is directed onto the area to be treated, breaking up offending pigment. Usually, treated imperfections fade within 10 days to 2 weeks, leaving skin glowing. Please contact our Alabama practice today to learn more about Laser PhotoFacials at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Spa Greystone in Birmingham-Hoover.

Laser Tattoo Removal
People who choose to have tattoos in their youthful days often come to regret their decision later on. Tattoos can be permanently lightened or removed using advanced lasers that pulse so quickly that the tattoo ink is dissolved without harming the surrounding tissue. Several treatments are usually necessary for best results. If you are considering removing a tattoo acknowledging a previous relationship or for professional reasons, please contact us today to learn more about Laser Tattoo Removal.
Laser Spider Vein Therapy
Having unsightly veins makes some people feel so insecure that they hide their legs under long pants, refusing to wear shorts, swimsuits or any other less modest clothing. Thankfully, Spa Greystone & Laser Center in Birmingham, Alabama offers an exciting solution to the common problem of spider veins: Laser Vein Therapy. Our CoolGlide® laser is used to painlessly — and permanently — destroy the spider vein, leaving behind smooth, unblemished skin and no trace of the vein.
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that is approved by the FDA and proven effective in temporarily improving the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Botox relaxes the facial muscles by blocking the chemicals that cause them to contract. Treatments with Botox are quick and minimally invasive, requiring only a few tiny injections. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes and you may resume normal activity immediately. Please contact our Alabama Cosmetic Center today to learn more about smoothing lines and wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic.
Dysport® is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and to treat the abnormal head position and neck pain resulting from cervical dystonia in adults. Made from the same active ingredient as Botox (botulinum toxin Type A), Dysport temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by restricting muscle actions that cause creases and frown lines. Relaxing the muscles you use to frown with Dysport can restore a smoother, more youthful expression to your face.
Repeated contractions of the muscles in your forehead can cause persistent frown lines as the skin begins to lose elasticity with age. Xeomin®, which contains botulinum toxin type A, acts on nerve endings and muscles to prevent the muscle fibers from contracting. Xeomin is approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, or frown lines between the eyebrows.
In order to preserve the skin's elasticity, the body manufactures collagen, a fibrous protein. As we age, however, the amount of collagen in the skin decreases, making the skin less supple and more wrinkled. Today's technology allows us to inject collagen into the skin, eliminating fine facial lines, the appearance of depressed scars and deeper wrinkles. Effects last up to 4 to 6 months! Please contact our Alabama practice today to learn more about collagen injections.
Juvéderm® is a smooth consistency injectable gel used to instantly restore the skin's volume with a natural look and feel. Juvéderm is proven to be effective for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, and is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to last up to a year. Two formulations — Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC — are available for flexibility in meeting the needs of each patient. Please contact Hedden Plastic Surgery today to learn more about Juvéderm.
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, and improve the appearance of the lip border. With a series of light injections, your skin is supported and flattened to give a smoother, softer look. Restylane is made from hylaronic acid, a natural substance already found in your skin.
Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler is designed to integrate into your skin and mold to the distinct contours of your face. Belotero Balance is FDA approved for use in the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, working to soften lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth with results that are smooth and natural. Results with Belotero at our Birmingham, Alabama cosmetic surgery practice are immediate and lasted about 6 months or more in a clinical study.
Prevelle® Silk is a hyaluronic acid filler designed with your comfort in mind. Prevelle contains a small quantity of a local anesthetic (lidocaine) to provide pain relief at the injection site. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body that which moisturizes and cushions the skin. Prevelle Silk is injected into facial skin, using a very fine needle, to plump the skin to smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles and folds (for example, areas around the nose and the mouth).
Captique™ is the newest FDA-approved non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Based on a natural component of the skin, Captique is highly versatile and can be used in many different areas of the face, including smile lines, vertical lip lines, corners of the lips and crow's feet. When injected just under the surface of the skin, Captique replenishes loss of volume that occurs due to aging and gives the skin a more youthful look.
Hylaform® is a cosmetic dermal filler that is made from a highly purified form of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the skin. With a series of light injections, Hylaform can be used to fill lines between the nose and mouth, small lines above the lip, frown lines between the eyes and to minimize creases that turn down the corners of the mouth. Treatment and recovery can take as little as an hour and the results are immediate and natural-looking.
Radiesse® is a calcium-based dermal filler that diminishes folds and wrinkles by adding skin volume and stimulating the production of collagen. Radiesse works immediately to smooth out wrinkles with long-lasting results that many patients will see last a year or more. FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Radiesse is a simple and convenient treatment that can be performed during a lunch hour.
Cellulaze Cellulite Laser
The Cellulaze™ laser treatment for cellulite reduction is a longer-lasting, one-time treatment that attacks the very structure of cellulite. Cellulaze is a minimally-invasive treatment that delivers energy directly underneath the skin. Cellulaze also increases your skin's natural depth for a smoother, healthier look that lasts.
Cellulaze is ideal for treating patients who, despite a healthy diet and exercise, retain the appearance of cellulite. Laser cellulite reduction is performed as an in-office procedure with only a local anesthetic. Patients see results in just a few weeks, with improvements continuing to appear for a few months after the procedure.
Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Treatment
Unsightly spider veins are a common cosmetic problem experienced by at least half of adult females. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective procedure in which a series of tiny injections is administered to remove unwanted spider veins from the legs and any other areas of the body on which they appear. Eliminating spider veins can dramatically improve your appearance and give the skin a more healthy and youthful look.
Depending on the location and other characteristics of your spider veins, Dr. William Hedden and our experienced medical staff may recommend sclerotherapy, Laser Vein Therapy or a combination of both. Laser vein removal may be the most effective method for treating smaller spider veins, such as those that appear on the face, while larger spider veins are usually treated with sclerotherapy. Contact Hedden Plastic Surgery today to learn more about your options for removing troublesome spider veins.
EVLT Varicose Vein Laser
Millions of men and women suffer from varicose veins — the bulging, often discolored cords that usually appear on the back of the calves or the inside part of the legs. Varicose veins are not only unsightly, but can also be very painful and a serious health concern. Now there is an innovative, minimally-invasive therapy called Endovenous Laser Treatment, or EVLT®, that is FDA-approved and fast becoming the best treatment available for varicose veins.
EVLT eliminates varicose veins at the source using a thin laser fiber that is inserted into the vein. The laser energy seals the varicose vein and allows it to be absorbed by the body, while blood flow is sustained by healthy veins. Laser varicose vein therapy does not leave a scar and is usually performed in less than an hour at the Birmingham, Alabama offices of Hedden Plastic Surgery.
Free Leg Vein Screening
We are now offering complimentary leg vein evaluations at Greystone Cosmetic Center as well as our satellite spa location in Auburn, Alabama. Please contact us today to make an appointment for your free Leg Vein Screening at a convenient location for you!
Sunlight, exposure to harsh weather, pollution — all of these can really zap the skin of its youthful beauty. Dermabrasion is a safe, proven way to revitalize dull, blotchy skin by removing acne scars, age spots, blemishes and other imperfections. During this procedure, a wire brush with an oscillating handle is gently used to remove dry, aged outer layers of skin, revealing the smooth, younger-looking skin underneath. Although the treated area will be swollen, tingly and/or red after dermabrasion, side effects will subside within a few days.
Medical needling treats lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks by creating tiny punctures into the deep layers of skin to increase the production of new collagen. This skin rejuvenation technique causes little damage to the epidermis, or outer layer of skin, and healing occurs very rapidly. Medical Needling patients undergo light sedation and the entire procedures takes about 1/2 hour to complete.
Many different types of scars can be treated with Scar Revision techniques to refine and improve their appearance. Topical treatments, injectable dermal fillers, surface techniques and surgery are options for patients who are seeking to diminish scarring on any area of the body. Please contact our Birmingham, Alabama Plastic Surgery Center today to set up your free consultation for scar revision.
Skin Cancer Treatment
The development of a new mole or changes in an existing mole may be a sign of skin cancer. Some skin cancers only require freezing, shaving or burning of the remaining cancer, while more aggressive tumors may need to be surgically removed. Mohs surgery, which is micrographically controlled, provides the most precise method for removal of cancerous tissue, while sparing the greatest amount of healthy tissue.
