BOTOX®, DYSPORT® , and DERMAL FILLERS work differently but together treat wrinkles and smooth and/or plump the skin. Botox® relaxes dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated facial movements like squinting and frowning; dermal fillers smooth out static wrinkles, which are visible even when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers also restore lost volume and help to sculpt youthful-looking contours and definition. Both Injectables are non-invasive and well-tolerated by patients. There is very little downtime and the results are almost immediate.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of the ‘double chin.’ Kybella received FDA approval in 2015 for this indication. Kybella is an injectable treatment used to diminish the appearance of a ‘double chin’, also known as ‘submental fullness’ that is caused by an accumulation of fat in the submental area of the neck located underneath the chin. Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance which can effectively ‘absorb’ fat cells.
Treatments involve 12-20 tiny injections underneath the skin in the submental region. Most people will need 2-3 treatment visits to achieve optimal results, although some patients may receive up to 6 treatments. Treatments are spaced apart by at least 1 month.
