A defined jawline is considered a sign of beauty, but excess fat in the neck and chin area can detract from your appearance. While liposuction is an invasive way to eliminate fat from this area, Kybella in Santa Barbara is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that melts away submental fat for a slimmer neck and jawline. How long between kybella treatments can vary between patients, and it’s important to understand how the number of sessions affects your results.
During your Kybella consultation, Dr. Green will evaluate the amount and distribution of fat under your chin to determine the ideal number of treatment sessions for your desired aesthetic goals. This assessment will consider a variety of factors, including skin turgor, elasticity, and weight. He will then create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique goals and needs to ensure that you achieve the results you desire.
After your first Kybella injection session, you may experience mild to moderate swelling in the treatment site. This swelling is caused by the body breaking down and destroying fat cells that have been injected with Kybella. Swelling will reduce over time, and can be minimized by icing the area and keeping it elevated after your treatment.
Most patients require two to four Kybella treatments to achieve their desired results. However, it is possible to receive more treatments, depending on the severity of your neck fat and your personal aesthetic goals. After multiple Kybella treatment sessions, the results will appear permanent, as the dissolved fat cells do not regenerate or return.
