How does Kybella work?

Kybella is administered by a RN who will begin by consulting the problem area, and together you will set up a treatment plan that works best for your concerns.

1. The problem area is sited and Kybella is injected which usually takes about 30 minutes.

2. The medication targets the fats cells and destroys their membranes (causing them to die).

3. All destroyed fat cells are metabolized into the blood stream.

4. Your body natural disposes all the excess fat leaving your face and neck more contoured.

Kybella is a quick and easy treatment that requires no downtime. Side effects are bruising, swelling and numbness in the treatment area.  These effects are only temporary so there is no need to be alarmed.

Most patients require multiple Kybella treatments (2-3) usually spaced approximately 6 weeks apart. During the initial consultation a treatment plan will be laid out the unique facial features of the client. After completion of the treatment plan, no follow-ups are required because the fat cells are permanently killed in the treatment area.

Kybella is a great treatment for anyone suffering from stubborn “double chin” fat. At this time the procedure can only be used in the upper neck region.
