What to Expect During Your Kybella Treatment

Kybella is an injectable treatment that is used to destroy fat cells under the chin. What this means for you is that there is an effective, non-surgical option for getting rid of your stubborn double chin. If you’re considering seeing a dermatologist about Kybella, then read on to learn what to expect during this treatment.

Your Treatment Plan

To begin your treatment with Kybella, your dermatologist will determine if this option is right for you. Inform your provider of any medical conditions that you have or have had in the past, any medications you are taking, and if you have had or plan to have surgery or cosmetic treatments on your chin, neck, or face. Also, inform your provider if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or plan to become pregnant. If your dermatologist determines that you are a good candidate for Kybella, then she will create a custom treatment plan based on your chin profile and treatment goals.

Your Treatment Length

Many patients experience noticeable results after two to four Kybella treatments, and you can receive six treatments total with at least one month between each. During a Kybella treatment session, which will typically last 15 to 20 minutes, your dermatologist will administer several small injections beneath your chin. How many injections you will need will depend on your treatment goals and the amount of submental fullness, or excess fat beneath the chin, that you have. After each Kybella session, you may experience numbness, bruising, or swelling at the treatment site.

Your Treatment Results

There are several good reasons to consider Kybella. This injectable option for addressing fat under the chin is minimally invasive, offers long-term results, and destroys fat cells at the treatment site. Once a fat cell is eliminated, it can no longer store fat. This fact means that additional treatments should not be necessary after you achieve your desired results.
