Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment for double chin. It involves the injection of a substance directly into submental fat, which eliminates unwanted pockets of chin-enhancing molecules. It has been shown to be effective in the reduction of fat under the chin.
This safe, FDA-approved drug works by dissolving targeted cells and reducing them through natural means. Wellington Revive is proud to offer Kybella injection treatments in Wellington, Florida.
Kybella is a novel treatment that targets and destroys fat cells. The first step of the procedure involves an injection into the area under your chin. The doctor may inject other areas as well, if necessary. Next, you’ll want to avoid massaging or breaking down this fluid for two weeks after the injection to ensure it works correctly. You should then expect to notice a reduction in fat over the next few months, and up to six total treatments may be necessary for best results.
An average patient undergoes two to four Kybella injections. Additional sessions are recommended if you have other specific areas of concern or would like the treatment repeated on the first area injected.
Most patients report a noticeable reduction in fat, and the smooth skin left after treatment is also an added benefit. While you could see results immediately, they will be more prominent in three to six months after injection, and you can enjoy your new look for up to two years. The transformation may not be permanent, and you will need to come back for periodic maintenance. Wellington Revive recommends coming back every six months so your resurfacing treatment can be applied.
Kybella injection treatments are most effective when the area is prepared. The week before your treatment, avoid any strenuous exercise or behaviors that can lead to weight gain. Additionally, you will want to stop taking aspirin for two weeks prior to treatment, as this may increase the risk of bruising. We also recommend stopping smoking at least six months before treatment. Preparation includes the day of treatment, too. Do not take aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs before your appointment. Please refrain from using make-up 24 hours beforehand, and also bring a list of medications you are currently taking to your treatment with Wellington Revive.
