Kybella Q&A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an aesthetic injectable, unlike the others. It’s not a filler, and it doesn’t reduce wrinkles or fine lines. Instead, Kybella reduces the fat beneath your chin to give you a more chiseled jawline. It’s the only drug of its kind and yields permanent results. 

If you have a double chin, you might feel like it makes you look older or heavier than you are. Double chins are often harder to lose than other areas of body fat because of factors you can’t control like gravity or your genetics. 

Britta customizes your Kybella treatment based on the size of your double chin and your treatment goals. She usually recommends between two and six sessions of 20-50 injections for the best results. She places the needles strategically to ensure natural-looking results.  


How does Kybella work?

The critical ingredient in Kybella is called deoxycholic acid, a natural acid that dissolves fat. Your body already produces the same acid to help dissolve and digest the fat you eat in your diet. Since the acid can dissolve other tissue types too, it’s essential to go to a professional for Kybella injections. 

During your treatment, Britta marks the injection areas on your chin and may offer you ice or a numbing cream to numb your skin. After she delivers the injections, the acid gradually kills your fat cells over several weeks. Soon, you have a tighter chin and a sleeker side profile. 


How should I prepare for Kybella injections?

Before Kybella or any cosmetic procedure available at European Wellness Cosmedical, you should visit Britta for a consultation and discuss your treatment options. She reviews your medical history and can tell you whether or not you’re a candidate for Kybella. 

Since Kybella doesn’t involve surgery or general anesthesia, you don’t need to do much to prepare for the procedure. For the best possible outcome, Britta might recommend that you:

 

  • Wash your face before arriving
  • Plan your injections weeks before any important events
  • Avoid ibuprofen and other blood-thinning medications before the treatment
  • Stop using Retin-A shortly before your treatment
  • Reschedule your appointment if you develop a rash or skin flare-up

The results are permanent, and you won’t need another treatment with Kybella after your sessions are complete.
