The Procedure

During the procedure, the area beneath the chin is cleaned and marked, and then, a series of injections are made into the targeted area. The number of injections required will depend on the size of the treatment area and the desired results. The procedure generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete, and most individuals experience only mild discomfort.

After the Procedure

Following the procedure, some swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment area may occur, which can last up to two weeks. However, this is a normal part of the healing process and can be managed with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medications.

When Will You See Results?

Kybella® is an effective treatment for submental fullness, and many individuals see results within two to four treatments, spaced about a month apart. However, it is important to note that the treatment is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, and maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly are important to maintain the results.

Kybella® is an effective treatment option for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of a double chin. It is a safe and non-surgical procedure that requires minimal downtime, making it an attractive option for many people.
