Does Kybella Work For Everyone?

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that is used to treat stubborn submental fullness and works for everyone who is a good candidate. If you have large pockets of chin fat, you may not be a good candidate for Kybella.

Those with bleeding problems, have an infection in the treatment area, or weak facial muscles may also disqualify you as a candidate. During your consultation with one of our medical providers, they will determine your candidacy.

What Happens During a Kybella Procedure?

At Magnolia Medical & Aesthetics in San Antonio, our Kybella procedure is brief and minimally invasive. If necessary, prior to the procedure, topical numbing cream and ice packs are used to ensure your comfort during the injection process. Next, the treatment area is marked and prepared. Discomfort should be minimal, and the procedure generally takes only 15 to 20 minutes with one of our expert injectors.

Kybella Recovery Time

Since Kybella works for everyone who is a good candidate, and you have reached this stage, your treatment was approved. Given that you have made an informed decision about achieving your aesthetic goals, there is no downtime following the treatment.

As with any injectable treatment, there may be some bruising, redness, soreness, and swollenness at the injection site. However, these side effects are only temporary and will resolve within a few days.

Due to the quickness of this treatment, people often undergo a session during their lunchtime and return to work immediately after. But you should be aware that Kybella injections is not like some dermal filler injections where results can be seen immediately. So, some patience will be required as the effects typically appear within 4 to 6 weeks after treatment.

How Long Do Kybella Treatments Last?

Kybella treatments last a lifetime. However, remaining fat cells under the chin can expand if you gain excessive weight. For this reason, maintaining a healthy lifestyle following Kybella treatments is important.

Can Kybella Be Combined with Other Treatments?

Yes, Kybella injections can be combined with other treatments such as radiofrequency to enhance skin tightening. Radiofrequency alone induces stress proteins which in turn encourages our body to create new collagen. Your medical provider will discuss your goals with you and help you choose treatments known to be safe when used with Kybella treatments.

Considering Kybella For Your Double Chin?

In addition to offering a great nonsurgical option to address submental fat, Kybella can also boost your confidence. Given that Kybella works for everyone who is a good candidate, a consultation is key to discussing if it is right for you. With thorough preparation and realistic expectations, Kybella can help you achieve a more sculpted jawline!
