There’s no doubt that KYBELLA® has played its part in revolutionizing the world of cosmetic treatments. Some people, however, don’t know much about this treatment. Here at Spa Black, we’re going to answer 9 of the most frequently asked questions about this treatment.
What is KYBELLA®?
This is an FDA-approved injectable medication that cosmetic surgeons use to get rid of unwanted fats in specific areas of the body. Used predominantly to get rid of the fat under the chin, or, double-chin to provide a more defined jaw-line.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® contains a naturally-occurring substance that allows the body to break down and absorb essential dietary fats. When injected into the problem area, it destroys fatty cells that are later removed from the body.
What Areas Can These Injections Treat?
KYBELLA® is often used for removing excess fat in the area underneath the chin. With the help of our experts, this treatment can help shape your chin and jawline. Sometime diet and exercise aren’t enough to get rid of areas with stubborn fat, so treatments like KYBELLA® are helpful for those who have already put the work in to lose weight and get toned, but who are frustrated with their double-chin.
What’s the Average Duration of a KYBELLA® Session?
Most treatments take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Treatments typically involve a maximum of 50 injections, and patients are able to return home to rest after the treatment is completed. Any tenderness at the injection site should subside within a day.
How Many Treatments do I Require to Achieve Optimal Results?
Since every patient is different, you’ll have to consult our cosmetic surgeon to find out how many sessions you need. Some patients need two to four sessions while others get noticeable results after just one session.
Is Physical Fitness a Key Factor to Consider Before Treatment?
Yes. It’s advisable to be medically fit before having any cosmetic treatment. During your consultation, be open to our surgeons and reveal about your general health.
How Long do the Results Last?
KYBELLA® provides long-term results. You can rest assured that fat will not build up in the areas treated any time soon. Every patient is different, however, and we recommended asking questions at your consultation to get a more individualized assessment.
What Happens if I Gain Weight Post-Treatment?
KYBELLA® doesn’t remove all fat cells from under your chin. Weight gain can affect the remaining fat cells. However, it might be hard to notice the change because KYBELLA® provides long-term results.
