What Are the Different Types of Injectables in Florida?

The demand for non-invasive cosmetic procedures, specifically injectables, has skyrocketed by 163% between 2000 and 2018—with good reason. Many clients prefer these simple, in-office procedures over complicated surgeries to enhance their appearance. But don’t be fooled by the non-invasive nature of injectables; they can still give you your desired results. In just one office visit, you can achieve a radiant, refreshed appearance.

What Are Cosmetic Injectables & Injectable Dermal Fillers?

Did you know volume loss causes many visible signs of aging? As we age, facial tissues thin out, lines become engraved around the nose and mouth, and cheeks lose their fullness. Dermal fillers, also known as  soft tissue fillers or injectables, replace this lost volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, plump lips, and create a more youthful appearance. Because they deliver stunning results, dermal fillers are a popular solution for combating aging skin.

Injectable fillers provide non-invasive skin rejuvenation without surgery. Harnessing the natural benefits of hyaluronic acid, cosmetic injectables offer exceptional lifting and volumizing effects, smoothing fine lines, deep wrinkles, and imperfections. They plump thin lips and beautifully enhance the jawline and facial contours.

In the past, plastic surgeons and elite cosmetic dermatologists kept these beauty secrets to themselves. However, in recent years, cosmetic dentists like Dr. Patty have expanded their practices to include injectables, offering a wide range of facial rejuvenation services. 

Got Facial Wrinkles & Frown Lines?

Years ago, invasive procedures like plastic surgery were the only option for addressing cosmetic concerns like medium-to-deep wrinkles and frown lines. Thanks to the FDA’s approval of BOTOX® for anti-aging benefits in 2002, millions of people have turned to this non-surgical solution to achieve a youthful appearance without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.

Moreover, newer options like Dysport and Xeomin have quickly gained traction in the esthetic market, offering effective alternatives with their own set of benefits. At Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa, our expert team will guide you in selecting the best dermal fillers in Fort Lauderdale to meet your specific needs, all while indulging in a pampering experience.

However, for most patients, the anti-aging effects of these treatments tend to last between three to six months, requiring periodic touch-ups for maintenance. If you’re looking for a temporary but effective solution to reduce wrinkles, these treatments may suit your needs.

Which Injectables Last the Longest?

In terms of longevity, the type of filler, the treatment area, and each patient’s unique characteristics all play a role. Generally, denser fillers injected deeper into the skin create a longer-lasting effect, but there are exceptions. To maintain your appearance, your cosmetic dentist will customize your treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques as needed.

Cosmetic dentists often recommend hyaluronic acid fillers due to their temporary nature. Since they usually last between 6 to 18 months, they are particularly well-suited for first-time patients. Keep in mind that lip injections typically wear off a bit faster than those in the nasolabial folds.

On the other hand, synthetic fillers offer greater longevity because the human body does not absorb them. While an excellent choice for the right client, the client should commit to results that can last several years before choosing this type of cosmetic injectable. An experienced and qualified cosmetic dentist like Dr. Patty can help you select a cosmetic injectable that aligns with your preferences.

Eliminate Wrinkles and Reveal Timeless Beauty with BOTOX®

Derived from a purified protein, BOTOX® blocks nerve transmitters that control facial muscles, causing the muscles to relax and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your mouth, eyes, and forehead.

BOTOX® removes worry lines and offers a youthful radiance. It prevents new wrinkles from forming and reduces existing ones, giving you back a timeless beauty that defies the passage of time.

Benefits of BOTOX®

  • Smoothes away facial and neck wrinkles
  • Eliminates frown lines
  • Banishes forehead wrinkles
  • Minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Fixes gummy smiles
  • Combats excessive sweating with body hyperhidrosis treatment
  • Retrains muscles for full mouth restorations
  • Provides relief from bruxism (tooth clenching/grinding)
  • Alleviates discomfort caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)

BOTOX®, Dysport & Xeomin

Concerning FDA-approved neurotoxins, BOTOX®, Dysport, and Xeomin are three notable products. While they all entered the market around 2009-2010, each offers unique benefits for individuals seeking rejuvenation.

Dysport serves as a viable alternative for those who have become unresponsive to BOTOX® treatment. Its injection strength and ability to cover a slightly larger treatment area compared to BOTOX® and Xeomin sets it apart. However, like BOTOX®, it contains egg and lactose protein, which may build up antibodies over time and lead to diminished results with continuous usage.

On the other hand, Xeomin offers a pure and protein-free botulinum toxin option, significantly reducing the risk of allergic reactions or natural resistance. Being a standalone agent allows it to migrate faster and more effectively, targeting all facial areas upon injection.

The time it takes for noticeable results may vary between these neurotoxins. Dysport typically requires two to three days for full effects, BOTOX® takes seven to ten days, and Xeomin shows results within five to six days.
