What is a Kybella® Neck Treatment?
Kybella® a non-surgical FDA-approved injection treatment to reduce moderate to severe fat on the neck, commonly referred to as the “double chin.” Kybella® contains a naturally occurring molecule, called deoxycholic acid, that dissolves fat cells. When injected properly, all other cells are left intact. The body then metabolizes and flushes out the dissolved fat cells. Once these fat cells are eliminated from the body, they are gone for good!
The Kybella® Neck Treatment Experience
Before your Kybella® neck treatment, the injection sites in your upper neck area are mapped out. The doctor than systematically injects the solution within the treatment area, applying contouring techniques to improve the chin and neck profile. The procedure is quick and quite comfortable, although some patients may experience a slight burning sensation when the Kybella® solution is being injected. Kybella® neck treatments have been gaining popularity as an alternative to surgical liposuction to eliminate double-chin fat.
Immediately after a Kybella® neck treatment, patients may experience swelling of the treatment area. The most notable swelling can last up to 3 days, with minor residual swelling lasting up to 7 days. Other potential side effects may include bruising and numbness on the treatment site, which will resolve over time. Initial results may be seen approximately 6 weeks or more after a Kybella® neck treatment. Depending on the severity of fat in the neck area, patients may need a second or third treatment for optimal results.
