How Does KYBELLA Work?
KYBELLA is a non-surgical alternative to fat reduction in the neck for people who don’t want an invasive procedure such as liposuction. Submental fat is often the result of genetics or aging, in addition to weight gain, and resists diet and exercise.
During the procedure, fat cells under the chin are injected with KYBELLA, and then they rupture and are destroyed. KYBELLA is formulated using deoxycholic acid, a chemical that’s naturally produced by the body to help dissolve and absorb excess fat. It’s ideal for helping sculpt the area under the chin. As in with CoolMini, the destroyed fat cells are flushed from the body naturally, resulting in a gradual shedding of excess fat that causes a double chin.
The KYBELLA Plan
Treatments are 100% customized based on a consultation and how much submental fat is present in addition to the patient’s aesthetic goals. Each treatment involves a series of injections, which follow a grid pattern that is marked on the treatment area before the procedure starts. The number of injections varies from patient to patient. Up to 50 may be made during a single treatment with little pain due to numbing cream.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The treatment is uncomplicated, so in most cases you are in and out within 20 minutes. Come on in during your lunch break. Kybella is that speedy!
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients see noticeable results after 2-3 treatment sessions. The number of treatments required will depend on the amount of fat being eradicated.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Once your aesthetic goal has been reached, there is no need for further treatment. When Kybella kills those fat cells, they are gone for good!
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Kybella recovery is usually quick and uneventful. At most, patients report some minor bruising and swelling that resolves within several days. Mild discomfort may be experienced at the injection sites but is easily treated with OTC pain relievers. Some patients jump right back into their routine while others prefer to lay low for a couple of days after the procedure.
