What Results Will I See With Kybella®?
We recommend at least two treatment sessions with Kybella® spaced at least two months apart. Most people will achieve the best results with two to three sessions. Fat removal will begin gradually after your first treatment and continues for about two months between treatments, so you will see consistent improvement over time. If you also have CoolSculpting® treatments, your dermatologist will determine how many sessions you need before starting Kybella®.
Fat that has been broken down and removed will not come back. However, the fat cells that remain in the area, as with other areas of the body, can still change in size if you have a significant weight change. Results from Kybella® are long-lasting and provide a significant improvement in the appearance of jowls.
Is There Any Downtime With Kybella®?
After Kybella®, you may experience soreness, swelling, and numbness. All will resolve over a few weeks. Swelling becomes less noticeable after the first few days, and you can return to your normal activities after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
If you have unwanted jowl fat and want to see a more sculpted jawline, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of abnormal scarring, you may not make a good candidate. Our board certified dermatologists can discuss the benefits and risks in detail with you.
