Customized Cosmetic Treatments To Stop The Clock
Amazing Skin To Match Your Beautiful Smile
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. Patty 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.
What Is Botox® And How Does It Work?
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.
Benefiting from Botox®
We offer BOTOX® for the following cosmetic and functional issues:
- Facial and neck wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Gummy smiles
- Body hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Retraining muscles for new full mouth restorations
- Bruxism (tooth clenching/grinding)
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
BOTOX® Vs. Dysport And Xeomin
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.
The Pros And Cons Of Wrinkle Reducers
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.
The Risks Of Anti-Wrinkle Injections
It is crucial to find a cosmetic dentist, dermatologist, cosmetic aesthetician or plastic surgeon trained and licensed to administer these injections. Potential side effects include:
- Redness and pain at the injection site
- Nose irritation
- Flu-like symptoms
- Sinus inflammation
- Temporary facial weakness or drooping
What Are Facial Fillers And How Do They Work?
The thought of plastic surgery can be scary to many people. But at our elegant boutique, you can rejuvenate your skin without ever having to go under the knife. In fact, dermal fillers are one of the most popular nonsurgical options to solve aging skin problems. Also known as soft tissue fillers or injectables, dermal fillers are effective for reducing wrinkles and augmenting the chin and cheeks.
The majority of fillers utilize hyalouronic acid as their base, a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Hyalouronic acid provides excellent lifting capacity, making it an optimal choice for restoring volume in the cheeks and midface. Natural facial fillers are used to:
- Fill in fine lines, deep creases and wrinkles
- Improve imperfections (e.g., scars)
- Fill out wrinkled or thin lips
- Contour the jaw line and other facial areas
- Plump up cheeks
A Helpful Glimpse At Our Facial Fillers
With an ever growing number of available fillers, it may feel overwhelming to choose the right one. With vast firsthand experience, our team will help you make the best choice to meet your unique beauty needs and achieve tightened, toned skin or augmentation for timeless beauty that endures for months to come!
Juvederm® Voluma™ XC
We use this hyaluronic treatment to correct volume loss in the cheek area due to age and for augmentation in the chin region to improve the chin profile. Reverse age-related midface volume deficiencies and present a more youthful appearance with this injectable gel that lifts the skin while adding volume and smooth contour to your cheeks. Optimal treatments can last up to two years.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC
This injectable hyaluronic solution corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles — such as nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. These folds are also known as “smile/laugh lines” or parentheses lines. This formula temporarily adds volume in treated areas to reduce the visibility of these lines. Optimal treatments may last up to one year, affecting a smoother appearance.
Juvederm® Ultra XC
We use this treatment for lip augmentation to create relatively fuller lips. If you have naturally thin lips and want a fuller appearance — or if your lips are thinning — this treatment creates a light-to-moderate look and reduces the visibility of vertical lip lines. These effects may last up to one year following optimal treatment, and the formula includes lidocaine to reduce pain sensitivity at the time of injection.
We use this efficient and versatile hyaluronic treatment to reduce moderate or severe folds and wrinkles, reduce lines, and enhance facial volume and contours. We also implement its methods to create fuller lips and improve the skin’s elasticity and structure. This treatment provides a natural way to enhance your current look. Restylane® includes many products under its brand, each targeting different treatment areas with formula varieties optimized for your intended effects.
Correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles with this dermal filler, including folds from the corners of your mouth to the lines around your nose. This treatment restores a youthful, natural-looking appearance while maintaining natural expressions and movement. It can also enhance your chin profile. Defyne’s hyaluronic formula is cross-linked with the molecular compound BDDE for an extended effect duration.
Restore natural facial beauty with Refyne: Soften your laugh lines, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds — while supporting your skin. Refyne’s formula uses the patented XpresHAn™ technology to ensure you retain easy and natural facial expressions and movements.
Counter nasolabial folds, moderate to severe facial wrinkles, and other age-related midface contour deficiencies with Lyft. This treatment deeply implants into the facial tissue for cheek augmentation and correction of age-related folds. Lyft can also correct volume loss in the dorsal side of your hands, inspiring a confidence boost in your daily interactions.
Restore fullness in your cheeks and volume in your midface area with Contour. This hyaluronic acid injection is crosslinked with BDDE for longer-lasting effects and also includes lidocaine as a local anesthetic to numb your skin at the point of treatment. This treatment counters drooping of the face due to lost elasticity and volume that commonly begins in a young person’s early twenties.
Increase lip volume and color while improving texture, reducing upper lip wrinkles, and retaining your natural lip flexibility. This hyaluronic treatment uses the patented XpresHAn™ formula to preserve your lips’ natural range of motion while including BDDE to promote enduring volume-enhancing effects for up to 12 months.
As we age, our faces often begin to display frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other noticeable wrinkles. The muscles of the face below the skin are a significant contributing factor to this aged appearance, and BOTOX® works to temporarily minimize the visibility of such wrinkles by reducing the activity of targeted facial muscles. This causes less folding of the skin in these areas, in turn reducing visible facial wrinkles.
Dysport is a cosmetic injection for temporary improvement of highly-visible frown lines, similar in use and function to BOTOX®. However, its effect is often more immediate, and treatment times may also be shorter than they can be for BOTOX®. Dysport works by temporarily restricting the repeated muscle movements responsible for the development of frown lines. This promotes a smoother, natural appearance that helps you look and feel less stressed and more confident.
This FDA-approved injectable gradually replaces collagen in your cells and tissue to support your skin’s structure and reduce the appearance of wrinkles for an effect of reduced facial aging for up to two years. Collagen is the most common protein in the body, but it is gradually lost as our skin ages. Sculptra works within your skin to increase collagen production. Its formula contains the safely-absorbed synthetic material often used in dissolvable stitches.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
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.
Facial Filler Procedures At Our Boutique
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.
