Have you ever opened your phone camera accidentally in selfie mode and then felt mortified at your double chin? Some of that is just about the camera angles, but sometimes it’s stubborn fat that won’t take its cue and go despite all your best efforts.
It’s possible that those trouble spots are due to age or genetics, especially if you follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
You might find yourself wondering how long does Kybella last?
How it Works
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment. The main ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which already naturally occurs in the body.
We strategically inject Kybella into areas of unwanted fat. The fat cells are broken down and destroyed, and the treatment area looks more toned. Once removed, the fat cells are unable to store or accumulate fat.
The best part is treatments only take about 15 minutes! Plus, there is no expected downtime afterwards. You can go about your regular day after your appointment.
Areas it Treats
- Double chin
- Submental fullness
- Undefined jawline
- Axillary or armpit fat pads or “bra fat”
Kybella is a targeted treatment used for specific areas. We also offer other options for fat reduction on larger parts of the body. We have several alternatives to liposuction that we love to recommend to our patients.
Results: how long does Kybella last?
The results from Kybella are permanent after just one treatment. Fat cells that are destroyed are gone and won’t return.
It’s important to note that not every fat cell will be removed, and it’s still possible for new fat cells to develop. That’s why it’s important to continue your healthy lifestyle choices to maintain the results of your Kybella treatment.
