It is easy for a person to start to feel overwhelmed when they look at all of the different cosmetic treatments that are available today. Some of the most popular treatments out there include BOTOX® and Kybella®. But when it comes down to BOTOX® vs Kybella®, many people don’t really know the differences. Although both of these products are injectable treatments, they are very different, as they serve different purposes and they work in different ways.
In order to determine what it is that you actually need, you need to take a good look at yourself in the mirror and decide what it is about your appearance that you do not like and want to change. If you have certain types of wrinkles on your face, BOTOX® may be considered. If you have a double chin, Kybella® will likely work for you.
BOTOX® is designed to relax your facial muscles. When it is skillfully injected into the facial muscles, it relaxes them. Since your muscles do not contract in the same way, the skin on top of them is left smooth. BOTOX® is a safe treatment that can be injected in the comfort of our office. The results that you get are subtle. Others will not be able to tell that you had BOTOX® treatments, yet they will notice that you look younger and more refreshed.
Kybella® is an injectable product that safely destroys fat cells. It has received approval by the FDA to get rid of fat under the chin. Once the fat that has been treated, it will never return.
Many people feel like they have to decide which treatment they are going to get when it comes to BOTOX® vs Kybella®. But this doesn’t always need to be the case. It is common for a person to be dealing with both dynamic wrinkles and a double chin. In that case, these treatments may be used together as part of a customized facial rejuvenation plan.
