Kybella Before and After
Kybella works to specifically target the double chin that so many people struggle to get rid of. Kybella is a prescription medication that actively works to improve the appearance of fat under the chin, also known as submental fat. This treatment is highly regarded because of its typically permanent and lasting effects as well as its minimal invasiveness. We are often asked about this treatment and how it works so well, so what is Kybella?
How does Kybella work?
A Kybella-trained specialist will administer the treatment through multiple small injections under your chin. The number of injections varies based on the amount of fat under your chin, but the process typically takes around 20 minutes to complete. The active ingredient in Kybella is called synthetic deoxycholic acid. This acid is a natural molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella works by destroying fat cells which results in a visible reduction in fat under the chin. Once the fat cells are destroyed they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments necessary varies depending on the amount of fat under the chin area. Statistics show that 59% of patients see the desired results with six treatments, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all people will need that same amount. Each Kybella treatment is given at least one month apart, and it is not recommended to exceed six treatments in total.
Recovery Time & Side Effects?
There is no real recovery time when it comes to Kybella, the most typical side effects are numbness, bruising, and swelling under the chin. However, there are some more serious side effects that can occur. These include developing an uneven smile, facial muscles weakening, difficulty swallowing, and nerve damage at the injection site. Overall, there are minimal side effects involved with Kybella and most people do not experience serious side effects or issues.
