BOTOX® and Dysport
What are BOTOX® and Dysport?
OnabotulinumtoinA is a natural purified protein that effectively treats wrinkles. It works by blocking nerve activity to certain desired muscles groups to relax them and give the overlying skin a smoother appearance. Treatment generally takes about 10 minutes with minimal discomfort and the result is quick and effective. From 7 to 10 days following treatment, you will notice a decrease in muscle movement at the treated area and a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your lines and wrinkles.
How does BOTOX® and Dysport work for you?
Cosmetic onabotulinumtoxinA is one of the most popular and effective facial treatment for anti-aging and allowing you to have a more younger, relaxed and refresh look. The effects last an average of 4 months and maybe up to 6 months. With repeated treatments, the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe over time as the muscles are being kept relaxed.
You can increase the duration of your treatment around the eyes by using ELASTIDERM by OBAGI twice a day on your eyelids. Apply this as the last topical agent in the morning and the evening.

What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
How does Kybella work for you?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. After treatment, the fat is cleared by the body's natural metabolic process. It targets only fat cells and leaves all other cells and tissues unaffected. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How many treatments do I need?
You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced 1 month apart. Visible results can be seen in 2 to 4 treatments.
Possible Side Effects?
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. In clinical studies, nerve injury in the jaw resolved on its own in a median of 44 days (range of 1 to 298 days), and trouble swallowing resolved on its own in a median of 3 days (range of 1 to 81 days).
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.
