The results Kybella produces are long-lasting, it is a safe procedure, the treatment itself is simple, and there is no extended recovery time. Even though Kybella is quickly gaining popularity, many people still need clarification about what it is, how it works, and why they should use it.
These essential questions will be addressed, so keep reading!
What is Kybella?
The fat-dissolving procedure Kybella has an obvious goal. The primary purpose of Kybella is to treat submental fat, often double chin fat. Several carefully positioned injections throughout the under-chin region are how the procedure works.
Injections of Kybella include synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that the human body naturally makes and utilizes to digest fat, particularly dietary fat. As a result, the injections promote fat loss in the location where they are administered. They do this by first dissolving the fat cells, which are eventually removed via the lymphatic system over 6–8 weeks.
Kybella is not applied to various body parts like some other fat-loss medications. It was created primarily to address double chin fat, producing fantastic results when this issue is a concern.
How does Kybella work?
When injected, the artificial deoxycholic acid-based solution quickly breaks down fat cells. Then, these cells are unable to store fat. It implies Kybella offers lasting benefits since the fat is permanently eliminated, unlike many other non-surgical procedures.
Although your specialist will make sure the treatment is as painless as possible, the injector and the patient must use extreme caution. You will be given aftercare recommendations that are crucial to follow because swelling and redness following treatment are common.
Only specialists with specialized training are permitted to administer Kybella injections. After the skin has been numbed with an anesthetic lotion, each treatment involves a series of injections with a very thin needle. Additionally, getting treatment across several sessions is typical to assess progress and achieve the desired outcome.
These appointments must be spaced appropriately to provide the lymphatic system ample time to remove the fat cells. Kybella treatments that are administered too frequently run the danger of being overcorrected.
How long is the session for Kybella?
Your treatment session should last anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes. Your injection sites will be examined and cleaned for most of this period. The actual injections often only take five minutes. If, however, you want to have a topical numbing cream given to your skin before the injections, you may anticipate your treatment session to last closer to 30 minutes. This medication may take up to 15 minutes to start working.
What is the recovery looks like?
Kybella is a treatment with few adverse effects. In addition to redness and discomfort in the treated area, swelling and some localized pain are frequent side effects of injections. Since anesthetic cream is administered before injections, any immediate discomfort is minimized.
Like any procedure, there is also a far lower chance of a more severe problem, which in the case of Kybella, might include post-treatment swallowing issues, ulcers, and bruises. Your practitioner would go into great detail about the healing process during a thorough consultation and would also be accessible after treatment to address any worries or questions.
Your progress will be observed, and any issues will be promptly addressed after complete results have been attained after several sessions.
How long until you see the effects of Kybella?
Although Kybella injections begin to work immediately, you shouldn’t anticipate seeing immediate results. This injectable’s deoxycholic acid breaks down the walls of the fat cells in the treatment location, triggering the release of the fatty tissue that the fat cells were accumulating. Your body must, however, get rid of these dead fat cells and the energy they contain. Usually, this procedure takes four to six weeks. Fortunately, there are actions you may do to get benefits more quickly.
Drinking enough water is one of the easiest and most efficient things you can do to see your Kybella benefits as soon as possible. Remember that lack of thirst is not a reliable sign of adequate hydration. The first signal of dehydration is feeling thirsty. Or, to put it another way, you are already dehydrated when you feel thirsty.
Another excellent technique to accelerate your results is to refrain from drinking for around one month. Alcohol is a diuretic. Thus, you are strongly advised to wait to drink it until your body has eliminated the fat cells destroyed during your treatment. It implies that if you decide to drink alcohol, it will be tricky for you to keep hydrated.
Take a month off from nicotine to improve the effectiveness of your lymphatic system and accelerate your results. Remember that your cardiovascular system sends nutrients and moisture to your lymphatic system. Unfortunately, nicotine causes considerable blood artery constriction, which raises blood pressure.
