How Long Does Kybella® Last?

Do you struggle with a double chin and wish for a non-surgical solution to get rid of it permanently?

Look no further than Kybella®, the revolutionary injectable treatment designed to eliminate unwanted fat in the chin and, jawline.

Understanding Kybella® and How It Works

Kybella® is an injectable treatment comprised of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring enzym in the body. Deoxycholic acid aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into specific areas of fat beneath the chin, Kybella® targets and permanently destroys fat cells, resulting in a visible reduction of submental fullness, commonly known as “double chin.” some patients additionally experience skin tightening, which enhances the overall contour of the chin and jawline.

Is Kybella® Right for You?

Unwanted fat localized under the chin can be stubborn, often resistant to even the most stringent diet and exercise routines. Factors such as aging and genetics can contribute to submental fullness, Alternative treatments include liposuction.

Kybella® is an ideal solution for patients seeking a non-surgical treatment to address this localized unwanted fat effectively. In some cases, combining Kybella® with CoolSculpting, another non-invasive fat reduction technique, may yield even more impressive results. To determine if Kybella is the right option for you, it is essential to have an in-depth consultation with a qualified professional, such as Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Tina West, who is a National Trainer for Kybella® and well-versed in its techniques.

Duration of Kybella® Results

One of the most compelling aspects of Kybella® is that its results are considered permanent, provided patients maintain a stable weight after the procedure. It’s important to remember that Kybella® treatments may be performed in multiple sessions, typically ranging from 2 to 4 treatments in each targeted area. The exact number of sessions required varies from person to person, depending on their unique chin profile.

Patients can anticipate seeing their final results approximately 8 weeks after their last Kybella® treatment session. During this period, the body continues to metabolize and remove the disrupted fat cells, gradually revealing the improved contour of the chin and jawline. Skin tightening in combination with fat reduction, further enhances the overall outcome.

Maintaining Long-Lasting Results

To ensure the longevity of Kybella®‘s effects, it is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight after the treatment. Significant weight fluctuations may influence the appearance of the chin and neck region over time, potentially affecting the outcome. By adopting a balanced diet and regular exercise routine, patients can preserve their newly contoured chin and enjoy lasting results for years to come.
