How Long Does it Take for Kybella® to Work?
We all use creams and beauty products to ensure that our skin stays glowing and youthful throughout life, but there are some small imperfections that cannot be changed with skincare. Double chin – or submental fullness – is something that many people would like to change, yet it is often difficult to do so.
Whether it starts to appear because of aging, weight gain, or genetics, a double chin can cast a shadow on the natural beauty of your facial traits.
Luckily, non-invasive treatments such as Kybella® can help you get rid of the fat in excess and restore the skin’s ideal firmness.
At Baltic Beauty Centre, our highly-trained, licensed aestheticians are ready to help you find the right solution for your needs.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a safe, non-invasive, and permanent solution that targets submental fullness, excess fat, and sagging skin to help you design the facial contour you desire.
Being FDA-approved and injectable, Kybella® is suitable for most healthy adults who are looking to find an alternative to plastic surgery to permanently reduce the visibility of submental fullness and refine their jawline.
Unlike surgical options, Kybella® is a safe, minimally invasive and effective way to get rid of your double chin.
How Kybella® Works
The science behind Kybella® is straightforward. 85 is an injectable solution of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a compound that is naturally found in the body.
This acid’s main task is to break down dietary fat, making it easier for your body to absorb it and dispose of. Thanks to Kybella® injections, you can help your body naturally get rid of the fat cells that are increasing the visibility of your double chin.
While results can take between 12 weeks and 12 months after the treatment to show, the synthetic deoxycholic acid starts breaking down the fat cells immediately.
At Baltic Beauty Centre, we recommend our patients receive a cycle of injections, one every four to six weeks. Each Kybella® session lasts between 15 and 20 minutes.
When Will You See Results from Kybella®?
After each injection, you are likely to notice some swelling around the submental area – this means that the synthetic deoxycholic acid is effectively breaking down the fat cells.
The swelling is only temporary and a natural part of the process. As the swelling eases, you and your licensed aestheticians at the Baltic Beauty Centre will agree on more sessions – usually, you will receive between two and six injections – once every one to three months.
The wait between the sessions is essential to give time to the active ingredient in the injection to break down the fat effectively and for your body to recover.
You will be able to see the first results – such as a more defined jawline and reduced double chin – within 12 weeks of the first injection. Results from Kybella® continue to improve for up to 12 months after the treatment.
