KYBELLA® in Philadelphia
KYBELLA® has become a popular treatment for our patients who wish to eliminate fat underneath their chin, but are hesitant to undergo surgery. The injectable is FDA-approved and used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of fat below the chin. This is called submental fat and commonly known as “double chin.”
How does KYBELLA® work?
KYBELLA® involves a series of injections. Injections are usually spaced about 4-6 weeks apart, a period that gives the body time to process the fat waste. The number of injections needed will vary by patient. After 2-4 treatments, many patients will see visible improvement. Results can be permanently maintained, especially if weight fluctuation is avoided.
Who can get KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® can be used on men and women who are 18 years or older.
Who should not get KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® should not be injected if you have an infection in the treatment area.
What should I know before my KYBELLA® treatment?
Patients should stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil supplements for two weeks prior to injection, to decrease your risk of bruising at the injection site. We suggest that our patients take Arnica two days prior to treatment.
Is there any downtime after my KYBELLA® treatment?
After a treatment, patients can immediately resume their normal activities. No downtime is needed. Best of all, KYBELLA® treatments yield long-lasting results. The fat that is dissolved is permanently gone.
What are some of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®?
Potential side effects for our patients include: Swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Other possible side effects of KYBELLA® may occur.
What should I expect after my KYBELLA® treatment?
KYBELLA® destroys fat cells that can no longer store or accumulate fat once destroyed. As a result, patients see a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How long will my KYBELLA® treatment last?
KYBELLA® results can be permanently maintained, particularly if weight fluctuation is avoided.
