What can I expect during treatment?
If you are an appropriate candidate for Kybella, here is what you can expect during treatment:
- Your double chin area will be numbed with a topical numbing agent.
- The area will be cleaned.
- Anatomic markings will be placed, followed by a skin grid that indicates where to place the injections.
- The in-office procedure will take about 25 minutes
Are there any side effects with Kybella?
After having Kybella injected for the double chin, some common side effects can include swelling of the area, redness, tenderness, numbness, and bruising. In the initial study, 81% of these side effects were mild.
What can I expect for post-operative care?
You should avoid strenuous activity for the remainder of the day following your appointment. You should not lie flat for several hours, and be sure not to massage the treated area. You can return to work the same day if needed.
When will I see my results?
You will see visible results within a matter of weeks, but optimal results may require two to four treatments spaced at least one month apart.
Is Kybella safe?
Kybella injections are a low-risk procedure if done by a qualified individual who understands head and neck anatomy well.
