KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved non-surgical cosmetic injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area. This type of procedure is called injection lipolysis. This treatment has become increasingly popular as a safe and effective solution for those seeking to enhance their facial profile and body contour without undergoing surgery.
Is Kybella Right for You?
Kybella is an ideal option for individuals who are bothered by the appearance of a double chin but are not interested in surgery. The person needs to be in generally in good health, had no previous surgery in the area where injections are desired and have firm, elastic skin with no excess skin.
While Kybella is generally safe, some common side effects may include swelling, bruising, some pain and numbness in the treated area.
This procedure is not right for you if you have one or more of the following:
Active diseases that may affect the outcome or increases risks
Pregnancy, planning for pregnancy or breast feeding
Use of some prescription and OTC medications- we will review your medications on consult.
When will I see results?
Usually after two treatments. Up to 6 treatments can be given one month apart. Number of treatments are based upon how much submental fat is under your chin and your aesthetic goals.
How Does it Work?
The main ingredient used is a naturally-occurring substance called deoxycholic acid that already exists in our bodies. This substance helps the body break down and absorb dietary fat. When Kybella® destroys the fat cells it disrupts fat cell membranes, causing them to rupture. These membranes are then naturally eliminated by the body's metabolic processes. After Kybella® treatment has concluded, patients will notice improved, younger-looking contours and reduced fat in the injected areas.
What Can I Expect?
Consultation: The process begins with a consultation, where your specific concerns and goals are discussed.
Treatment Planning: Based on your individual needs, we will create a personalized treatment plan that outlines the number of Kybella injections required.
Injections: During the treatment session, the Kybella solution is injected into the fat using a fine needle. A typical procedure usually takes about 20 minutes.
Recovery: After the procedure, clients may experience some swelling, redness, and mild discomfort. These side effects usually subside within a few days, and most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately.
What are the Results and Benefits?
Over time, as the body naturally processes the destroyed fat cells, patients will notice a significant reduction in their targeted area leading to a more defined and contoured body.
Non-surgical: Kybella eliminates the need for invasive procedures like liposuction.
Minimal Downtime: Most patients can return to their normal activities shortly after treatment.
Natural-Looking Results: The gradual fat reduction ensures a natural appearance.
Long-Lasting: The results of Kybella can be permanent.
