Is Kybella Permanent? 9 Things to Know Before Treatment

We all have parts of our bodies we don’t like as much as others. When you look in the mirror, does your attention go right to the extra skin under your chin? If so, you’ve probably wondered if there’s anything you can do about it.

Instead of finding the best angle for pictures or hiding it with makeup contouring, you should make an appointment for Kybella. But how is it effective? Today, Glowtox will explain how Kybella can help you work with your goals. 

Check out to see if this is permanent and what you need to know before the treatment. 

What is Kybella, then?

Kybella is an excellent injectable cosmetic treatment that can eliminate a “double chin” or extra fat under the chin without surgery. You can use it in a few other places as well!

How Does It Work?

As we’ve said, Kybella is an injection for the area under the chin that doesn’t require surgery (known as lipolysis). But this isn’t just a treatment option for people who want to try something new. 

In 2015, the FDA approved Kybella. It’s a popular choice because it doesn’t involve surgery. You can get similar results to a facelift or liposuction without taking as much time off.

Kybella’s main ingredient is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which the body makes on its own.

It is a bile acid that helps the body absorb fat when it is in the body. Kybella uses this method of action to work on a specific area. 

Once deoxycholic acid is injected under the chin, it destroys fat cells and stops them from being able to store fat.

But Kybella isn’t just good for submental fullness, which is extra fat under the chin. You can also use it in a few other places where people often complain, such as:

  • Hips 
  • Stomach 
  • Thighs 
  • Bra area

9 Things You Should Know Before Getting Kybella

If you are thinking about getting rid of your double chin with Kybella, here are nine things you should know first:

Kybella is a Safe Treatment

Kybella is usually safe to use because the FDA has approved it. But, like any other procedure, there can be risks. Since it doesn’t involve surgery, it’s an excellent alternative to liposuction.

Fat Cells Refuse to Refuse To Store Fats

Your doctor or nurse should have a treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. Most people need more than one treatment to get the desired results regarding their appearance.

But the results last long after the deoxycholic acid breaks up the fat cells in the treated areas. More treatments are a sure way to stop fat cells from building up.

Kybella Works & Can Last Forever

Kybella works forever, but if you gain weight, you may be able to see some fat on your chin.

Kybella can only be given by professionals, like doctors. It can only be injected into patients by nurses, doctors, and physician’s assistants who are trained and have a lot of experience. 

In some clinics and states, nurses and physician’s assistants have to work with a doctor watching over them. A doctor or nurse can also inject Kybella. You can get it at a medspa or a place that does cosmetic surgery.

Few Side Effects

There might be some side effects, but none are terrible. Some side effects are skin sores, dysphagia, trouble swallowing, temporary nerve damage, and possible permanent or temporary hair loss in the beard. 

After the procedure, you can return to your normal daily activities and keep your average activity level.

Make a Plan First

Before you go through a Kybella procedure, your doctor needs to ensure that you are a good candidate for the treatment. Make sure you have an initial consultation where you can talk about your medical history and past cosmetic procedures. 

You should also tell them if you have trouble swallowing or bleeding easily. Also, to avoid getting bruises after treatment, it would be best to avoid taking ibuprofen and acetaminophen.

Downtime Can Be in Minimum

After getting an injection of Kybella, you might have bruising, redness, pain, swelling, inflammation, or numbness at the injection site for a short time. 

The swelling will go away a few days or weeks after the treatment. Your doctor might suggest wearing a garment to help the node.

Works in Small Areas

Kybella can only be used to treat the submental area under the chin. Sources say that if someone tries injecting Kybella in other places, it could hurt them. But it still depends on what your doctor says. Choose the right one!

Not Covered With Your Insurance

Kybella is a cosmetic procedure, and insurance does not cover it. Its cost ranges between $1,200 – $1,800. This can change, though, depending on how much your provider charges, how many treatments you need, and where you live. 

At Glowtox, we have payment plans that you can enjoy and help you still achieve the best of your goals! 

After Your Appointment

After getting an injection of Kybella, you might have some mild to moderate swelling. The needles can cause pain, and swelling can signify that the deoxycholic acid is doing its job.

The acid kills the fat cells under the chin over time, and the body works slowly to eliminate them. About 12 weeks are needed to see the full effects.

Sleeping on your back with your head slightly raised will help your Kybella injections last longer and reduce possible side effects. Also, even though it might be tempting, try not to touch, press, massage, move, or rub the area.
