WHAT TO EXPECT
-- avoiding alcohol for the few days before can help reduce bruising.
-- The area is injected with numbing medication so you are comfortable during the treatment.
-- A temporary tattoo is applied to mark the treatment area- this is easily removed after Kybella is injected.
-- The area under your chin may be red and swollen as you leave your appointment.
-- Ice, ice, baby! You will be sent home with an ice pack to soothe the area and help with swelling, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off for the next few days.
-- Moderate swelling + bruising in the area is normal and expected for about 5-10 days after treatment.
-- A mild numbness sensation is expected for about 3-4 weeks after treatment.
Q: How does Kybella work?
A: Kybella aids in the destruction and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin it destroys those fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat.
Q: How many treatments are needed?
A: 2-4 treatments are typically needed for desired results with some patients needing up to 6 treatments. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Q: How long do results last?
A: Once the fat cells are destroyed with kybella, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired results, further treatment is not expected.
