Kybella Vs. Botox: What’s the Difference?

Fillers have gained popularity for their ability to plump up lips and fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, but here at Dermatology Institute and Skin Care Center, we offer two different injectables that are worth learning more about: Kybella and Botox.

When it comes to Kybella and Botox, you don’t have to choose between them. In fact, you can get both. Because they are two entirely different injectables, we have found that most patients can get both of them done without any complications or adverse side effects. So, what are Kybella and Botox? Let’s take a closer look.

Kybella

Having fat under your chin can be a real pain in the you-know-what— especially if you workout regularly and eat well. If you suffer from a double, triple, or even quadruple chin, we at Dermatology Institute and Skin Care Center have got you covered with Kybella. Kybella is an injectable that when injected under the skin, works to dissolve fat cells and tissues— getting rid of your chin(s) in the process.

Botox

Botox has remained one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for a variety of reasons including its ability to soften fine lines and wrinkles almost seamlessly— especially when it’s administered by an office like Dermatology Institute & Skin Care Center. When injected into the muscles in the forehead, Botox temporarily softens fine lines and wrinkles— giving you that wrinkle-free forehead you haven’t seen since your junior year of high school.

Both Kybella and Botox are unique and popular for their reasons. If you would like to learn more about these injectables, schedule your consultation at our Santa Monica office today and call 310-829-4104.
