What is Kybella and How Does it Work?
WHAT IS KYBELLA?
Kybella is a non-surgical, FDA approved injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of submental fat below the chin, or what is known as the double chin.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella has an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid. This acid is a molecule that is naturally found in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the skin it destroys fat cells, leaving you with less volume under your chin. When these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate fat, therefore you will no longer need any more treatments once you reach your desired look.
What to expect after your treatment?
After your Kybella treatment you may have some soreness. You can also expect to have minor swelling and bruising right after the injections. The swelling and bruising usually last for about one to three days but can last for a few weeks before it normalizes.
How long will it take for you to see results?
You should expect results four to six weeks after your treatment. More often than not, people do more than one session to receive their desired results. We recommended anywhere from two to four sessions. We know that everyone is unique, it all depends on your body type and how much submental fat you initially have. Some people do achieve their desired results after only one session!
After your first Kybella treatment, you must wait 8 to 10 weeks to do a second treatment. The best part about Kybella is that once you receive your desired result you don’t have to worry about doing any more because it is a permanent result!
Is there any downtime with Kybella?
As mentioned before, Kybella is a non-surgical treatment, meaning that once you’re done with your treatment you can go back to your normal life. All you should expect is some minor swelling and bruising, but it’s not enough to make you stay at home!
