- Posted on: Oct 15 2018
What do you do if you aren’t bothered by your skin, but that little extra fat under your chin? Those stubborn pockets of fat are even more bothersome if you eat right and exercise regularly. Now, there’s a better, easier, less-invasive option than liposuction for that little double-chin. Keep reading to learn about Kybella.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is the name for a cosmetic injectable that is used instead of surgery to remove unwanted, excess fat from underneath the chin. Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to support your body’s inclination to break down stubborn fat under the chin, and helps you keep it off. This solution is injected at the desired site underneath the chin, where it goes to work helping break down fat without the need for Liposuction or other invasive surgery.
The Kybella procedure is fairly short and simple. A series of injections are given across the under-chin area over a few short minutes. The solution then starts going to work very quickly, breaking down fat cells. Your body then can whisk that extra fat away, and your lymph system can get rid of it as with other waste.
Take note that you may have some swelling initially after the treatment is completed. This is completely normal.
How until I see results?
After each treatment, you may have swelling that peaks around 24 hours after the injection are given. This swelling may last a few days or a few weeks, depending on how your body reacts to the treatment. This swelling is a result of the solution breaking down the fat cells, so it’s a good sign that you’re going to see results from Kybella. You may see the best results a few months after your treatments.
How many treatments are suggested?
Multiple visits may be required to see the best results from Kybella. Two or more treatments are generally suggested for most patients.
