Based on your chin profile, your specialist will develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs. You will receive multiple small injections under your chin during each treatment. A maximum of six treatment sessions may be administered, spaced at least one month apart. The results of Kybella can be seen in a matter of two to four treatments for most patients.
Additional treatments may be required for some people. If a person has excessive submental fat beneath the chin, additional injections may be needed to destroy the fat cells. The fat cells in some people with moderate submental fat may be resistant to treatment, so they may require additional treatments.
These treatments are designed to last for many years, sometimes for a lifetime. The reason for this is that fat cells are different from any other cells in our body. Unlike most cells, including skin cells, fat cells cannot regenerate once they are destroyed. Fat cells are exceptionally elastic and can expand to store more fat in the body because they are exceptionally elastic.
Maintaining your results requires a healthy and active lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle involves eating a balanced diet low in processed foods, sugar, and sodium. It is possible to prevent your natural metabolism from storing fat in your food if you avoid these foods. Throughout the day, drink plenty of water since it removes fat and sugar from the blood and makes it harder for your body to store fat.
In most cases, this treatment begins to work within two sessions, or within 12 weeks, whichever is sooner. It is impressive how fast the results of this injectable can be achieved in a non-surgical, minimally invasive manner. This treatment typically results in a significant reduction in submental fat within two to three months for the majority of patients.
Those with moderate amounts of submental fat may see results sooner than those with more pronounced amounts. You can achieve natural-looking results with this treatment because of the gradual nature of the treatment process.
Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2015 because it is a very safe treatment. One of the most common side effects patients experience are possible redness or swelling at the injection site. It is also possible to experience hardness at the injection site. Another common side effect of Kybella is temporary numbness, which actually makes subsequent injections more comfortable. Depending on the patient, swelling may be more severe or less severe. It’s not uncommon for the swelling to last up to ten days. Well-placed scarves or face masks can hide swelling until it heals completely. Skin laxity is another issue that can arise after treatment. Extra skin can remain after fat is removed from an area. Kybella creates inflammation, which aids in tightening the skin and mitigating droopy effects.
The treatment with Kybella is non-invasive, and there is no significant downtime associated with it. It is likely that you will be able to return to work immediately after your session. There are no noticeable physical effects other than swelling, minor redness, and possibly some bruising. Kybella can cause some post-injection discomfort, but this can be easily resolved with over-the-counter pain relievers. In a week or two, any bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection site should disappear.
After treatment, patients should avoid vigorous exercise for three to five days. The sun should also be avoided for five days, as well as excessive heat exposure. Saunas, hot tubs, and tanning beds are best avoided. Take care of your skin and avoid alcohol and caffeine as well. Experts at Dr. Phillips Aesthetics will advise you on the best aftercare routines.
