While the best-kept secrets and tricks of the esthetic beauty trade have traditionally been reserved for elite cosmetic dermatologists, the use of state-of-the-art treatments by cosmetic dentists has greatly expanded in recent years. Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa offers a wide range of facial rejuvenation services including BOTOX® in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Dr. April Patterson is a highly trained, world-class cosmetic expert who successfully carved a niche in the cosmetic dental industry with an all-encompassing approach to dentistry and esthetics. In addition to BOTOX®, she offers other anti-wrinkle injections, the latest dermal fillers and KYBELLA®, the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. Individually or in combination, these procedures provide quick gratification, minimal recovery time and long-lasting results.
When you use facial muscles every day to smile, frown, laugh and cry, this eventually results in pronounced lines around your mouth, eyes and forehead. BOTOX® is a purified protein derived from botulinum toxin to block transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate these muscles. BOTOX® injections cause muscles to relax, thereby reducing undesirable wrinkles. BOTOX® can give you back timeless beauty by preventing marks and wrinkles from forming, as well as reducing existing ones. If you have wrinkles or other types of facial lines, BOTOX® in Fort Lauderdale, FL may be an ideal option to temporarily diminish their appearance. We offer BOTOX® for the following cosmetic and functional issues:
Like BOTOX®, Dysport and Xeomin are FDA-approved neurotoxins that came to market in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Dysport is a viable option for people who have stopped responding to BOTOX®. It is also injected at a different strength and affects a slightly larger area than BOTOX® and Xeomin. But like BOTOX®, it contains an egg and lactose protein to carry the botulinum toxin and this can cause the body to build up antibodies over time, leading to diminished results after continuous usage. Xeomin contains no accessory protein and is a “pure” version of the botulinum toxin, reducing the risk of an allergic reaction or natural resistance. The solitary agent migrates further and faster to effectively work on all facial areas upon injection. Dysport typically takes two to three days until full effects of treatment are seen, BOTOX® takes seven to 10 days and Xeomin takes five to six days.
At one time, most cosmetic issues had to be treated with invasive procedures such as plastic surgery. Since FDA approval of BOTOX® for anti-aging benefits in 2002, millions of people have relied on it as part of their esthetic regimen to look younger, without the risks associated with surgery and general anesthesia. While Dysport and Xeomin are newer solutions, they have also experienced tremendous success and provide competition in an ever-growing esthetic market. When you receive personalized treatment at our luxurious spa, we will help you select the best treatment to fit your needs and pamper you! It is important to keep in mind that the anti-aging effects of these treatments generally only last about three to six months.
If you have excess fat under your chin and are worried the resulting double chin is making you look older than your actual age, KYBELLA® may be the perfect solution. KYBELLA® contains deoxycholic acid, a natural substance your body creates that helps absorb fat. This procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to surgery or liposuction to treat the fat that leads to a double chin. Once injected into your skin, the drug immediately goes to work on your double chin by destroying submental fat and making it permanently disappear. Most clients need about 12 to 20 injections per visit and two to four visits total, each of which takes about 15 minutes. For best results, it is necessary to wait about four weeks between injections.
Placing fillers is not a cookie-cutter procedure. We will select the proper filler based on your needs and budget after a thorough evaluation. Dermal fillers last for varying amounts of time, but generally last six months to two years depending on the product. The cost of a facial filler is associated with the amount of time the product lasts. When you receive your dermal filler at our boutique, it is considered an outpatient procedure. During the procedure, the filler is injected into your skin in the area that you are trying to correct. Immediately after the treatment is complete, you will be able to resume normal activities.
