What to Expect with Kybella Treatments


kybella treatmentsKybella in Los Angeles is a breakthrough injectable developed to reduce the amount of fat under the chin. While many are very excited about this development, there are a few things that prospective patients should know before scheduling treatment. There are a few qualifying factors that make a patient a better candidate for Kybella, which is important for the success of the treatment.

Skin Elasticity

The quality of the skin on the chin and neck area will have a major effect on the appearance of the end result. Kybella is intended for the reduction of fat and cannot change the appearance of the skin or tighten it for a slimmer look. If Kybella is injected into the chin and there is no fat to absorb it, the patient will not benefit from it. Many patients misunderstand how Kybella works and think that any bulk, even skin can be improved by the injections. With this being the case, patients should have reasonably firm skin and mass due to submental fat rather than skin.

Downtime varies

Like all minimally invasive treatments, downtime will vary between patients. This is especially true when it comes to swelling and redness. Kybella may not have the same amount of downtime as your typical Botox appointments. Botox and dermal fillers can cause some redness and swelling, but can typically be done as “lunch break” treatment. Kybella typically involves more swelling and tenderness than the average injectable. It may be recommended that you have this treatment on a day where you do not have any big events and can go home and rest.

Results are Gradual

Lastly, it is important that prospective patients understand that a Kybella treatment plan is a gradual process and results will begin after a few weeks and will continue over the course of your recommended treatment plan. Kybella is not a quick fix, making it important for one to manage their expectations when starting a treatment plan. Your body will need time to flush out and metabolize the fat cells before you can see results.
