If you have moderate to severe fat under your chin, you may be a good candidate for KYBELLA® injections. KYBELLA is FDA approved to reduce the stubborn fat that appears under the chin. The series of injections that are administered under the chin effectively dissolve fat, resulting in a more defined and tighter jaw line.
But before you make the decision to undergo treatment at our medical spa, take the time to read this blog post and learn more about KYBELLA results. Our Oklahoma City, OK patients experience beautiful, lasting results in a matter of weeks. To find out if treatment is right for you, contact Sculpted Medical Spa & Cryotherapy Center and schedule a consultation with Evelyn Lorents, MD.
How Many Sessions Are Needed to Achieve Ideal Results?
Patients typically undergo between two and up to six KYBELLA treatment sessions before they achieve ideal results. Each treatment session is scheduled at least one month apart. The number of treatment sessions will depend on the amount of submental fat under the chin.
Patients with a moderate amount of fat may require fewer treatment sessions, while patients with more severe cases of fat under the chin will require six KYBELLA sessions. According to the product website, 59 percent of patients involved in clinical studies underwent six treatment sessions.
How Long Will it Take before I Notice the Results of Treatment?
The initial results of treatment are visible about four to six weeks after the first treatment session. Improved results will continue to be seen over the course of treatment, with the final results seen at about seven months after treatment (if you underwent the full six treatment sessions).
What is ideal about KYBELLA treatment is that results appear gradually, as though you have improved your exercise and diet routine and are losing excess fat at a healthy rate. Day to day, you may not notice a dramatic improvement in your appearance, but over time you will see that your jaw line has become more defined. Many patients prefer the idea of this subtle improvement over a period of time because others won’t be able to tell that you have had any treatments done.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of KYBELLA treatment last for years, particularly when patients maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients rarely require touch-ups, which is another great benefit of treatment.
How Long Do Side Effects Last?
Although KYBELLA is a non-invasive treatment, it is associated with some side effects after treatment. Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, or areas of hardness in the days after treatment. These side effects typically start to fade three days after treatment.
For those patients that are concerned about going to work with noticeable side effects, we recommend that they undergo treatment before the weekend starts. That way, they have the weekend to allow the side effects to subside. By Monday, the appearance of bruising, swelling, and redness should be barely noticeable, and make-up can be used to further mask these side effects.
