At Lumen + Bevel Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on the fact that we only provide the most elite and advanced treatments to patients looking to enhance their natural beauty through injections, fillers and other non-invasive methods. Kybella injections are one of our most popular services, as they destroy some of the body's most stubborn fat cells. And, once those cells are destroyed, they never return.
What Is Kybella Treatment?
Kybella is a scientifically proven treatment that utilizes deoxycholic acid to destroy the walls of fat cells that accumulate in the dreaded “double chin.” Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring bodily component that helps the body digest fat. Once the acid comes into contact with the cells, the cells can no longer hold the fat, and the fat turns to waste. Your blood and lymph systems then flush out the waste for your body to metabolize and eliminate.
Though Kybella injections use a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, it’s the same makeup as the real deal. What this means is that your body processes it the same as it would the naturally occurring substance and responds to it just as well.
What Do Kybella Injections Target?
Kybella is most commonly used to enhance areas where stubborn fat cells typically accumulate, such as under the chin. As we age, what is known as “supplemental fat” builds up under the chin, whether due to weight gain, loose skin or genetics. While there are exercises you can do to slim down that area, it typically takes an ongoing commitment and 15 to 20 minutes each day to see and maintain any visible results. With Kybella, however, results are visible almost immediately and after just a few short sessions.
How Long Does Kybella Take To Work?
Most Kybella treatment sessions last just 15 to 20 minutes at a time and entail the injection of multiple, small injections to the fat beneath the skin. The exact number of injections you will need all depends on the stubbornness of the area and the amount of enhancement you want done. However, more patients are happy to report visible results and complete satisfaction within six to 12 weeks of the last treatment. Kybella treatments are administered at least one month apart, and we recommend no more than six treatments per individual.
Though the results of Kybella injections are not as immediate as some of our other, popular treatments, they are permanent. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they’re gone for good. Following the last treatment, you can trust that the joy you feel over your new look will be lasting.
What Can You Expect Following Treatment?
After treatment, you may experience some swelling, soreness and numbness. This should only last for about one to three days, though some patients experience discomfort for up to a week following treatment. A local anesthetic, some ice and over-the-counter pain medications can help manage the discomfort. If numbness or other side-effects continue beyond a week, we encourage you to come back into our office or to call your healthcare provider.
