KYBELLA RESULTS: WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

KYBELLA RESULTS: WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

Are you struggling with a double chin? Tried all sorts of diets and exercise but failed to get rid of the bulge under the chin? You are not alone.

Nearly all of us have a little bit of unwanted fat underneath our chin. Sometimes it is caused by overall weight gain. Other times, it is simply genetic. Lucky for all of us, Kybella has gained a lot of popularity in recent times and promises fat removal underneath the chin area.

For those of you who don’t know what Kybella is, let me explain to you in the simplest way possible. Kybella treatment involves the use of deoxycholic acid injections that break down the fat cells underneath the chin area. This treatment is approved by FDA, is non-invasive, and has minimal side effects. That is why it has become quite popular.

BENEFITS OF KYBELLA TREATMENT

Let’s look at the top benefits of Kybella treatment:

  • Kybella is done using deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies. This fact minimizes the risk of allergic reactions.
  • It is a fairly safe procedure with no major risks and side effects involved.
  • The procedure can be completed in a matter of 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Kybella is a great alternative to chin liposuction (which is a fairly invasive procedure and involves no downtime).
  • The results of the treatment are permanent, and you won’t need constant touch-ups, unlike some of the other treatments.
  • It dramatically improves your profile.
  • The treatment does not involve any downtime, and you can get right back to your usual routine.
  • Kybella gives you a smoother and more youthful neck transition.
  • Kybella eliminates even the most stubborn fat deposits that are impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise.

HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?

Let’s look at how the Kybella injections will work:

Deoxycholic acid is an active ingredient in Kybella. It is a naturally occurring molecule that is present in our body. The purpose of this molecule is to break down and absorb dietary fat. When Deoxycholic acid injections are injected into the skin, they destroy the fat cells, leading to a noticeable reduction in fullness underneath the chin area. As the cells are destroyed, they are unable to store and accumulate fat which makes the results permanent.

KYBELLA TREATMENT SESSIONS REQUIRED

We all have different facial and chin profiles that come with different volumes and distributions of fat. As a result, the number of Kybella sessions required for each one of us will differ drastically. Typically, it requires 3-4 treatment sessions to see optimal Kybella results. It can only be determined by booking a consultation with a specialist. They will assess your profile and help you achieve flawless results.

AFTERCARE – WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER KYBELLA?

The Kybella treatment seems quite simple, but what to expect after the treatment? Let’s find out. Post the treatment; most patients experience swelling and bruising at the injection site. It can peak a couple of days post the treatment but will go down on its own in a matter of a few weeks.

Here is a list of a few aftercare instructions to adhere to post Kybella:

  • Use an ice pack after the treatment to help with swelling.
  • Wearing a chin strap post-treatment also helps with swelling.
  • You can also use over-the-counter pain killers to minimize post-treatment pain.
  • Massaging the treatment site gently also helps.
  • Avoid taking any anticoagulant or antiplatelet medicines.
  • Do not consume vitamin E capsules.
  • Refrain from massaging the treatment site.
  • Make sure to sleep with your head in a slightly alleviated position. Stack a few pillows underneath.
  • Do not opt for any strenuous activities three days post the treatment.
  • If you notice anything unusual, immediately contact your service provider.

RARE COMPLICATIONS

Although the below-mentioned complications are very rare, they can occur if Kybella injections are not administered properly.

Redness, pain, itching, numbness, slight bruising, hard skin around the injection site, headache, nausea, uneven smiles, trouble swallowing, nerve injury, and muscle weakness in the face are some of the rarely occurring side effects.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, immediately contact your service provider and seek the required treatment. Nothing is more important than your health.

KYBELLA RESULTS AND TIMELINE

Swelling for Kybella is a fairly normal side effect. However, it can still cause discomfort and become quite irritating. It won’t last very long and will subside in one month. As most people require multiple treatments to see desired results, it is advised to wait for a month between two treatments until all the side effects subside.

MULTIPLE TREATMENT SESSIONS

Again, most people require 3-4 treatment sessions to see optimal Kybella results. Expect to receive one treatment per month over a period of six months time frame. You might need fewer or more sessions depending on the amount of fat underneath the chin.

Each session is completed in a matter of 15 to 20 minutes. You can see visible results within a month’s time frame. Most patients are able to see a clear difference after 12 weeks. The results will last a lifetime.

However, it’s always best to speak directly with your provider.

IMPORTANT POINTS TO CONSIDER

Kybella is a great treatment. However, it is not suitable for everyone.

Here are a few things you need to consider prior to getting Kybella:

  • Avoid getting Kybella if you are experiencing an infection at the treatment site.
  • Inform the service provider in advance if you take any over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements regularly.
  • Kybella should be avoided if you are pregnant or lactating.
  • Inform your service provider if you had any cosmetic treatments done to your face previously.
  • If you struggle with bleeding problems, Kybella might not be the right treatment for you.

FINAL TAKEAWAY

Kybella is a great treatment for getting rid of stubborn fat deposits underneath the skin. Although it is a minimally invasive treatment with no significant downtime, it is important to follow all the post-treatment instructions to curb the side effects and enjoy Kybella results to the fullest.
