How does it work?
Kybella is an injectable medication that gets rid of fat beneath the chin, or the submental area. It is a safe and effective procedure that destroys fat cells and inhibits their re-growth. If you’ve been fighting off the “double chin,” you will likely love what Kybella can do for you. Fat cells destroyed with Kybella do not return, and results should last barring significant weight gain
How can I prepare for my treatment?
Please do not wear makeup that would be difficult to remove with a gentle cleanser or wipe to your appointment. Before your procedure, we will gently clean the area under your chin and jawline. Because Kybella injections can be momentarily uncomfortable, you will be numbed with a topical cream prior to the treatment.
What will my healing process be like?
After your procedure, you may have some bruising and redness in the areas injected. It is common to experience swelling after the procedure, which can last over a week. It is fine to cover up bruising with make-up but be sure to strategically plan your appointment at least two weeks away from any event that you do not want to go to with swelling.
Serious side effects, such as facial weakness or prolonged numbness, are rare and usually resolve on their own.
Are you a candidate for Kybella?
The best way to determine your candidacy for treatments is to schedule a consult.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatments you will need will vary depending on the severity of what is being treated, although most patients require around 1-2 vials for 2-4 treatment sessions. Treatment sessions are spaced 1 month apart.
