How Long Does Kybella® Last?
Our bodies do not continue to grow fat cells after a certain age, so fat removal means those fat cells are gone for good. Most people will not need any further treatments after they finish their series of Kybella® injections. However, the fat cells remaining in the area can change if your weight changes, so avoiding weight fluctuations can help maintain your results.
What Results Will I See From Kybella®?
Most people need between two and four Kybella® treatments to see maximum results. We will space your treatments a month apart. Results start to become visible after three to four weeks as the body filters away the fat cells. They will continue to improve after each treatment session. You will see your double chin fade away, leaving you with a slimmer neckline and more contour around the chin and jawline.
Is There Any Downtime After Kybella®?
You will experience some swelling that can last for several weeks. Soreness and numbness also occur. All of these will resolve on their own. You can go back to your usual routine immediately after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
If you have submental fullness or a double chin, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will need to wait to have Kybella®, and you should review all your medications and health issues during your consultation.
