9 Things You Must Know About Kybella

9 Things You Must Know About Kybella

Are you tired of dealing with stubborn chin fat that won’t budge no matter how much you exercise or maintain a healthy diet? Submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin,” is the term for extra fat beneath the chin. Fortunately, advancements in aesthetic medicine have given rise to an innovative solution that doesn’t require surgery or downtime: Kybella.

At ELLA Medical Aesthetics, we understand the desire for a more youthful and harmonious facial profile. With Kybella, you can say goodbye to the frustrations of a double chin and hello to a more confident and refined appearance. Here are nine things you need to know about this remarkable treatment.

Kybella is an effective treatment in reducing submental fat.

Kybella is an innovative injectable treatment designed to target and reduce submental fat, commonly known as a double chin. Deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and assists in the digestion and absorption of dietary fat, is a component in this formulation. By efficiently destroying fat cells when injected into the submental region, Kybella helps to shape and define the jawline.

The active ingredient present in Kybella is deoxycholic acid.

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a synthetic form of a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies. It is a bile acid responsible for the digestion and absorption of dietary fats. When administered through targeted injections, deoxycholic acid disrupts the integrity of fat cell membranes, causing them to break down and be metabolized by the body over time. The submental fullness diminishes as the fat cells are eliminated, resulting in a more defined chin and improved facial profile.

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment.

Unlike traditional chin liposuction, which involves anesthesia, incisions, and a recovery period, Kybella offers a minimally invasive approach to reducing chin fat. The treatment consists of precise injections directly into the submental area, eliminating the need for surgery or general anesthesia.

With Kybella, there are no scars or lengthy downtime associated with surgical procedures. Usually, patients may get back to their regular routines immediately after the procedure. This convenience and lack of disruption to one’s routine make Kybella an attractive option for individuals seeking a more contoured chin without the risks and inconvenience of surgery.

Kybella’s results are natural.

Kybella provides natural-looking results as the body’s natural metabolic processes gradually eliminate fat cells. This gradual transformation ensures a subtle and harmonious change, avoiding the sudden and dramatic alteration often associated with surgical procedures.

Who can be a candidate for Kybella treatment?

For people who want to obtain a more sculpted jawline but are disturbed by the impression of submental fullness or a double chin, Kybella can be an excellent solution. While each person’s eligibility is determined individually, some common factors make someone a suitable candidate for Kybella.

One important consideration is overall health. Candidates for Kybella should generally be in good health without any underlying medical conditions that may interfere with the treatment or healing process. It is also crucial to have realistic expectations and understand the potential outcomes of the procedure.

The Kybella treatment process

A Kybella treatment session typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: Before the treatment, you will consult a skilled provider at ELLA Medical Aesthetics. This consultation allows the provider to assess your eligibility, discuss your goals, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  • Preparation: The region will be cleansed on the day of the treatment, and the healthcare provider may use a topical anesthetic to make the patient more comfortable.
  • Targeted Injections: Using a series of precise injections, the practitioner will administer Kybella into the submental fat, strategically targeting the area beneath the chin. The injections are performed in a grid-like pattern to ensure even distribution and optimal results.
  • Treatment Duration: A Kybella treatment session typically takes 15 to 20 minutes, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules.

During your treatment session at ELLA Medical Aesthetics, our professionals will take the time to ensure you are comfortable and well-informed. The treatment process will be explained, any worries you might have will be addressed, and you will receive individualized care based on your particular requirements and objectives.

The common side effects associated with Kybella

While Kybella is a safe and FDA-approved treatment, it is important to be aware of the potential side effects. Common side effects after a Kybella treatment include:

  • Swelling: Swelling is a typical side effect resulting from the body’s natural response to the injections. It is most noticeable in the treated area and can last several days to a few weeks.
  • Bruising: Some individuals may experience bruising at the injection sites. Typically, it is temporary and will disappear with time.
  • Numbness: A temporary numbness or mild tingling in the treatment area may occur. It is a normal response to the treatment and should subside within a few days.

It is critical to remember that these adverse effects are frequently minimal and transient. They vary from person to person and usually resolve independently as the body adjusts to the treatment.

How do you manage the side effects?

Although the side effects of Kybella are temporary, there are several ways to manage and minimize their impact:

  • Applying ice: Applying a cold compress or ice pack to the treated area can help reduce swelling and bruising. Be sure to wrap the ice pack in a cloth to protect your skin.
  • Avoiding strenuous activities: To minimize swelling and bruising, engaging in strenuous activities, especially those that may increase blood flow to the face, should be avoided for a few days after the treatment.
  • Following post-treatment care instructions: It is essential to adhere to your healthcare provider’s post-treatment care recommendations carefully.
  • Patience and time: Remember that the side effects will subside naturally over time as your body adjusts. Being patient and allowing your body to heal at its own pace is important.

Post-treatment care to ensure optimal results.

To get the most out of your Kybella results, post-treatment care may include the following:

  1. Avoiding excessive touching or rubbing of the treated area.
  2. Keeping the treated area clean and avoiding harsh skincare products.
  3. Following any specific dietary guidelines provided, if applicable.
  4. Attending any scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Adhering to these guidelines may encourage healthy healing, lessen the duration and intensity of side effects, and get the best results from your Kybella treatment.
