Injectables Q & A

What is BotoxⓇ?

Botox is the first injectable treatment to receive FDA approval for temporary reduction of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It’s also the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the world. 

The secret behind Botox is the formulation of Clostridium botulinum, a substance present in lakes, soil, and forests. This powerful neurotoxin is deadly in certain concentrations, but the amount used in cosmetic applications is carefully controlled and perfectly safe. 

When injected into the muscle tissues in your forehead or around your eyes, Botox works to prevent those muscles from moving through their full range of motion. You’ll still be able to create normal facial expressions, but your facial muscles won’t be able to pull your skin into folds, lines, and wrinkles. 

DysportⓇ is another injectable neurotoxin treatment. It works in much the same way as Botox, but there are some slight differences between the products. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that act to smooth and soften your skin, lessening the appearance of hollowed areas, wrinkles, folds, or lines. There are a number of excellent dermal fillers on the market, and the team at Family Practice of Suntree and Viera has gone to great lengths to select the very best options. 

Some formulations are thicker than others and better suited for specific areas of the face. Some of the aesthetic issues dermal fillers can improve include:

  • Hollows in the cheeks or beneath the eyes
  • Thin lips
  • Lines running from the sides of your mouth to the corners of your chin
  • Lines running from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Crow’s feet

Dermal fillers can even smooth the backs of your hands, an area where many men and women first begin showing signs of aging. 

How do I know which injectables are right for me?

The process begins with a personalized consultation with Dr. Ditz. He has the training and experience needed to evaluate the shape of your face and determine exactly which products in which volume can create the best possible results. 

Using a combination of both neurotoxins and dermal fillers is sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift. This approach can deliver outstanding results that last for months or even longer. Best of all, as your results fade you can determine if you’d like to come in for another treatment and can discuss your preferences for more or less volume and definition.
