Preparation is needed for Kybella?
It is important to plan the Kybella treatment with your healthcare provider and make sure you are the right candidate for the procedure. Discuss your medical history, as well as any cosmetic procedures you had done on your face, neck, or chin. Tell your healthcare provider about any trouble swallowing or bleeding problems. The research on Kybella’s effect on a fetus or infant is still ongoing, so let your healthcare provider know if you are nursing or pregnant, or planning to become pregnant.
As a nonsurgical procedure, there is little preparation required for Kybella. It’s advisable to schedule the procedure well before any major events. Washing your face properly before the appointment can help reduce the risk of infection, and avoiding ibuprofen and acetaminophen can prevent post-treatment bruising. You might not be a good candidate if you have had or are planning to have facial surgery if you have trouble swallowing, or have an infection or medical condition in or near the planned injection site.
How is Kybella injected?
Before the procedure, your Injector will use a topical numbing agent or ice pack to help ease any pain or discomfort before injections. Once you are numb your Injector will mark the injection sites with a marker and may have 20- 30, and up to 50, injections are under the chin. The acid then works gradually to kill fat cells, which are metabolized by the body over the following weeks.
The number of treatment sessions necessary varies for each person. Multiple treatments might be needed to reach optimal results. You can receive up to six Kybella treatments, with at least one month between each session.
What can I anticipate after treatment?
Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid, naturally produced by your body to help absorb fat. Kybella injections use a synthetic form of this as an injection. Once injected, the acid destroys fat cells beneath the chin area so fat cant be stored anymore. Make sure that a trained healthcare professional administers your Kybella injections since deoxycholic acid can kill other cells in the process as well.
Your Injector should design a treatment plan according to your specific needs. Most people require more than one treatment to reach desired aesthetic goals with Kybella. In clinical studies, many people who’ve received Kybella treatment achieved visible results after two to four treatments. Six treatments were necessary in 59 percent of cases. Once the deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells in the submental area, the results should be lasting, and further treatment is not expected as the fat cells can no longer store fat
Kybella may need to be repeated. Factual length of results can vary from person to person due to differences in facial anatomy, gender, and lifestyle. Proactive maintenance is key to providing continued results .-Individual results may vary.
