What to Expect After Kybella® Treatment

Are you considering Kybella® as a solution to redefine your profile and eliminate that stubborn under-chin fat? Understanding what to expect after the treatment is just as important as the decision itself.

Keep reading to gain insights into the after-effects of Kybella® and discover how Luminare Aesthetics and Wellness can guide you through this transformative experience.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is an FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic procedure specifically designed to target and eliminate fat cells beneath the chin, known as submental fullness.

The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys these fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness and an improved chin profile.

Advantages of Kybella®

Kybella® offers several compelling benefits:

  • Non-Invasive. Unlike surgical options, Kybella® is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime.
  • Targeted Treatment. It specifically targets fat cells under the chin, providing precise results.
  • Long-Lasting Outcomes. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, leading to long-lasting results.
  • Improved Profile. Kybella® can significantly enhance your facial contours and provide a more balanced and youthful appearance.

What to Expect After Treatment

Here are the usual things that can happen after you undergo the Kybella® treatment:

  • Immediate Aftermath. Post-treatment, you may experience some common side effects of Kybella®, such as swelling, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. These are typically temporary and should subside within a few days to weeks.
  • Downtime and Recovery. While Kybella® doesn’t require significant downtime, it’s advisable to take it easy for the first 24 to 48 hours. You might want to schedule your treatment towards the end of the week to allow for a more comfortable recovery over the weekend.
  • Number of Sessions. The number of treatments varies depending on the individual’s specific needs. Many patients receive Kybella® over 2 to 4 sessions, spaced at least one month apart, to achieve their desired outcome.
  • Visible Results. While some patients notice visible contouring in as few as 2 to 4 weeks, it typically takes several months to fully appreciate the effects of Kybella® as your body gradually processes and eliminates the destroyed fat cells.

Kybella® is best suited for adults who:
