Are Kybella Results Permanent?

Many people workout hard and eat proper diets, but still, end up with problem areas where they just can’t shed the visible fat. There is now a new fat-dissolving treatment to remove that fat, and it is called the Kybella treatment. This new treatment is approved by the FDA for reducing fat under the chin (often called a double chin), but can also be used in other areas. Kybella in NYC is offered at Jordan Jacobs Medical Artistry, but the major question on everybody’s mind is whether Kybella results are permanent.


What is Kybella?


Kybella treatment is a process that uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps emulsify (break down) fat. After being injected at the site, the walls of the fat cells will be broken down, and expel their fatty contents, after which the body will naturally metabolize the fat as it normally would. Depending on the amount of fat in the problem area, it may take anywhere from 4 to 6 sessions, or more, of Kybella in NYC, with 4 to 6 weeks between the sessions.


Are Kybella Results Permanent?


When you undergo Kybella in NYC treatments, the results are going to be permanent, as the fat is removed from the body naturally. As well, with the breaking down of the walls of the fat cells, there will be fewer locations for the fat to build up, so any weight gain will be less visible in treated areas. Of course, the caveat being that you need to maintain a proper exercise regime, a healthy lifestyle and have a healthy diet to avoid the buildup of fat again.


Undergoing Kybella Treatment

When you opt for getting the Kybella in NYC treatment, there are several pre-treatment, and post-treatment care tips you need to follow for it to be as comfortable for you as possible. If you decide to get the Kybella treatment, before your scheduled appointment, you need to avoid any anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medications for one week otherwise you could end up with additional bruising. This includes Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil and antihistamine medications. As well, you are going to need at least 10 days to fully recover from treatments, so do not schedule your injection close to an event you need to attend.


During the treatment process, you will be injected with a needle, so there will be mild discomfort as the drug is injected, but this will be mitigated with pain medication given before the treatment procedure.


After you have gotten your Kybella in NYC treatment, you will experience swelling around the injection site, so it is suggested for you to apply a cold compress to this location repeatedly for the first 24 hours, in 15-minute intervals ideally. You will be able to return to work within a day or two of getting the treatment. As well, avoid strenuous activities or exercise in the first 24 hours. For the first two days avoid thermal shock, such as hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, etc. Just like during the 1 week pre-treatment time period, avoid anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medication for a week after the treatment.
