What to Expect from Kybella Treatments

Do you have an unflattering “double chin” that you just can’t seem to get rid of, no matter how much you diet or exercise? If so, then Kybella treatments might be perfect for you. As of right now, Kybella is the only FDA-approved, injectable treatment that’s specifically designed to destroy extra fat cells in your chin, helping you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look.

If you’ve never had Kybella treatments before, it’s natural to have some questions, perhaps even some trepidations. Allow us to walk you through the process and let you know roughly what you can expect.

Before Your Treatment

Before the treatment itself, we’ll ask that you make a consultation appointment with one of our providers. That will allow us the chance to take a quick look at your chin and face, and to verify that you’re a good candidate for Kybella. It will also give you an opportunity to ask any lingering questions. This is a quick, painless, non-invasive evaluation, and it moves you one step closer to eliminating that double chin.

How is Kybella Injected?

Kybella can only be administered by a trained and certified Kybella injectionist. The injections themselves are small, and you may need several of them, simply depending on the amount of extra fat you’re looking to lose.

How Long Does the Treatment Last?

Most of the time, Kybella treatments are over and done with in 15 minutes or less.

How Many Total Treatments Do I Need?

Most clients will need more than one treatment… though again, it varies, just depending on the nature of your double chin. Treatments are performed on a monthly basis, and most patients don’t need any more than six. You can ask your provider for a more specific estimate of how many treatments you’ll require.

Are There Side Effects?

It’s pretty normal for people who receive Kybella injections to have some minor swelling or bruising around their chin. Some numbness is also pretty typical. If you have more extreme side effects, like difficulty swallowing, make sure you contact your provider as quickly as possible.

Is There a Downtime Required?

Most individuals who receive Kybella injections head right back into their regular lives. So long as you can deal with the swelling or bruising, you shouldn’t need much in the way of rest and recovery.

How Long Will Results Last?

Kybella literally destroys fat cells, making them unable to retain or accumulate any additional fat. As such, most clients never need any additional treatments.
