When patients are unhappy with their facial appearance, they may turn to a plastic surgeon for assistance. But what if you have mild to moderate wrinkles and folds, and want to seek a non-surgical method of erasing these imperfections? What if you want to avoid surgery to remove a double chin? There are many advances in the area of dermatology, and at North Scottsdale Med Spa, we are pleased to offer two injectables commonly used for men and women seeking enhancement of the facial area: Botox and Kybella.
Many patients have heard of Botox, but might not fully understand how it works. Botox is a neuromodulator that works when injected into muscles of the face. Dynamic wrinkles that are caused by facial expressions such as frowning are often best treated with Botox injections. Botox reduces the muscle contractions that cause dynamic wrinkles and can smooth the skin and provide patients with a more youthful appearance within days. The results will last several months before reinjection is required.
Another injectable used in our office is Kybella. Kybella is the first—and only—injectable that has been approved by the FDA for the use of treating submental fullness, or the dreaded “double chin.” Kybella breaks down the fat in the chin and jowl area over time, allowing the body to naturally flush the fat cells from the body through the lymphatic system. The results of Kybella are permanent, and patients can avoid going under the knife to achieve a more chiseled and prominent jawline.
