How Long Until I See Results from Kybella?
A defined jawline is a sign of youth and beauty. As you age, fatty deposits under the chin can develop, significantly altering your appearance. Even if the rest of your body is generally fit and firm, a double chin can make you look far heavier and older. Thanks to Kybella in Santa Barbara, submental fat can be melted away – no surgery required.
Kybella is injected into the fatty area, affecting the cells, which shed over time. You will need some patience, but the slimming effect is well worth the wait! As a rule, very noticeable results appear at about six weeks following your final treatment and continue to improve for about six months.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance that dissolves fat cells. When injected into the area under your chin, it destroys fat cells, which are then swept away by your body’s natural processes. What’s left is a sleeker profile and a more defined, youthful jawline.
What are the benefits?
Kybella is the only injectable treatment for submental fullness that delivers long-lasting results. Once the fat cells are affected by the injections, they melt away, never to return. It’s important to note that maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise will help you continue to enjoy the slimming effect of the injections. Kybella is a minimally invasive injectable, and a groundbreaking treatment for a double chin, with the following benefits:
- No downtime
- No surgery
- No scalpel
- No stitches
- Very little recovery time
- Quick, pain-free treatments
- Long-lasting results
How many treatments will I need?
Kybella is delivered through a series of twelve to twenty injections placed in a grid pattern in the fatty area of your chin. The number of injections performed as part of your Kybella treatment is based on the degree of your submental fullness: you will likely require several treatment sessions to achieve the look you want.
As the fat cells are destroyed, the double chin slowly melts away, leaving you with a more attractive profile. Since each patient who comes to Dr. Morrissette seeking treatment with Kybella is different, the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results varies. Dr. Morrissette generally recommends a series of two to six treatments.
You will be able to enjoy your results from Kybella for years to come. There will be some initial swelling following your Kybella injections. These side effects are not unusual and will subside within one month of your final treatment. Treatments are planned one month apart, so Dr. Morrissette can observe your progress and adjust your treatment plan. Your results will be visible within four to six weeks following your procedure.
