Kybella 101

Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets and removes unwanted areas of fat. Unlike other fat removal methods, Kybella is made of a compound that “melts” away fat over the course of a few months. The treatment is designed for difficult to reach or small areas, such as under the chin or bra fat. Patients can expect a reduction of over 20% of the fat tissue in an area during a treatment series that is highly customized to your needs.

101 - What to Expect

What to Expect

  • Kybella is injected into a carefully planned grid pattern in the treatment area by a board-certified dermatologist.
  • Patients report that the treatment is tolerable, with a mild stinging sensation when the product is injected.
  • In the following days, the treatment area will be significantly swollen, so we recommend patients plan around important events or over a weekend.
  • The swelling will subside in one to three weeks, though you may still feel a little sore in the treatment area. Over the next three months, the treatment process will continue and we will bring you back to evaluate your results.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • There is no preparation for this treatment, however, patients should expect to have significant swelling and soreness in the area for 1-3 weeks.
  • Patients may require multiple sessions.

How Kybella Works

Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, a synthetic formulation of an acid that is naturally produced by your body to help absorb fat. It also destroys the fat cells beneath the chin, eliminating existing fat stores and preventing them from returning in the future. It is administered through a series of injections giving surgical-like results that ultimately dissolve the fat permanently and allow for a firmer, more sculpted jawline. Kybella is the perfect solution for those in Bucks and Montgomery County who desire a sleeker, more defined jawline without the need for surgery.

The Ideal Candidate

Kybella is a great treatment option for patients who have difficulty losing stubborn chin fat and fat around the face. Moreover, this is a good alternative to more invasive procedures such as liposuction. Kybella in Montgomery County can help treat submental fullness without the extensive downtime time associated with surgical procedures.

Kybella Treatments and Recovery Time

The treatment plan for this filler is customized based on the patient’s aesthetic goals, but most patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Sessions are spaced at least one month apart as Kybella works gradually to kill fat cells in the area, which are then metabolized by the body. Spreading out the treatments allows us to achieve the patient’s goals while maintaining a natural-looking appearance. Kybella is a non-surgical option and therefore has very minimal recovery time in most cases, but this can vary from person to person.

Cost of Kybella in Montgomery County

The cost of Kybella as a cosmetic procedure depends on how many injections each patient requires in order to achieve their individual aesthetic goals. The overall cost of the procedure can be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Weishar.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

Kybella is a low-risk procedure with very little possibility of any major complications. However, as with all cosmetic procedures, the risks of Kybella can only be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Weishar. Some of the most common side effects include:

  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • A small amount of temporary pain

While downtime varies from one patient to the other, recovery associated with Kybella is minimal and most individuals can return to their daily routine almost immediately.

How long does Kybella last?

Kybella works by destroying the fat cells. Once these cells have been destroyed, they no longer store or gather fat. This means that once you have achieved the aesthetic results you desire through Kybella treatment, you should experience permanent improvements. During your initial consultation, Dr. Weishar will provide you with a detailed treatment plan highlighting how many sessions you require to achieve the results you are longing for.

How well does Kybella work?

Yes, Kybella has helped thousands of men and women across the world rid themselves of stubborn chin fat. Thanks to a series of injections, Kybella helps break down the fat under the chin within just one month. For best results, Dr. Weishar recommends a series of sessions spaced just a month apart from one another.

How many sessions do you need to see results?

During a typical Kybella injection treatment, 2 to 3 vials are used. The number of sessions depends entirely on the patient and the results they want to achieve. Normally, patients need 2 to 3 sessions to achieve noticeable results. For those with a more significant amount of fat under the chin, up to 5 sessions may be necessary.

Can Kybella be used on other parts of the body?

Theoretically, Kybella can treat any pockets of fat. However, the procedure is only FDA-approved to treat fat under the chin. As a result, it is not recommended to use Kybella to treat other parts of the body. At Springhouse Dermatology we take our patients’ needs and safety extremely seriously and, therefore, only use Kybella according to the guidelines put forward by the company itself.

How quickly will I see results?

Unlike other injectables, Kybella does not offer immediate results. This treatment option is most noticeable 4 to 6 weeks after each session. While this may seem like a disadvantage to some patients, it is worth noting that unlike other injectables, Kybella provides patients with permanent results, meaning touch-ups are not necessary.
