WHAT IS BOTOX?
BOTOX® has become one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. This injection is primarily used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, such as: forehead lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles on and around the neck. BOTOX® is the registered product name for Botulinum toxin, Type A. Additionally, BOTOX® can be used as an effective method for treating other conditions, like migraines and excessive sweating.
The majority of patients do not experience any pain from BOTOX® injections. Some people may experience minor discomfort, but not enough to warrant using local anesthetic. A topical numbing cream can be applied a few minutes before starting treatment.
Results are normally visible a few days after the procedure. As soon as the muscles in the treated area are not able to contract, the appearance of lines and wrinkles will diminish substantially.
The amount of botox recommended is different for every person. Set up a free consultation today to discuss how many units of botox you may need.
WHAT IS KYBELLA?
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is the very first, and currently only, FDA-approved treatment used to effectively reduce fat cells under the chin. KYBELLA® works to destroy the submental fat cells that give the appearance of a double chin. The substance is injected into the lower chin, at which point it begins to destroy the stubborn fat cells. KYBELLA® is a safe and highly effective alternative to undergoing a surgical procedure, plus there is little to no down time. Depending on individual circumstances, the majority of patients require between two and three treatments to see optimal results.
