How does Kybella work?
Kybella’s main ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This substance, which is found naturally in your body, is responsible for breaking down and absorbing fat. When the solution is injected into your body, the deoxycholic acid immediately starts destroying fat cell deposits.
Once they’re broken down, the cells can’t accumulate fat any longer. Results are permanent, so as long as you don’t gain weight in the future, your outcome can last a lifetime.
When will I see results with Kybella?
Although Kybella jumps into action right away, it will take time to notice results. This is because your system has to start by flushing away all broken down fat cells. You should start noticing a dramatic effect in as little as three to four weeks, with optimal results surfacing around six to eight weeks. Because it will continue to break down and flush out fat, you may continue noticing an improvement after the initial result.
Which areas can be treated with Kybella?
Even though Kybella is known for getting rid of that dreaded double chin and working to define your jawline, it’s also beneficial for off-label treatments. Dr. Camden is one of the only practitioners in the Richmond area who offers treatments for other areas of your body.
If you have stubborn fatty deposits that make you self-conscious or uncomfortable about your appearance, let Dr. Camden know. Some clients benefit from treatments in their upper arms, along their bra line, or in their buttocks.
Do I need more than one Kybella treatment?
In most cases, yes. A single treatment often involves getting multiple injections in the treatment area. With her expertise, Dr. Camden knows precisely where to inject Kybella so it works best for your particular needs. Although you’re probably going to notice an improvement shortly after your first session, most men and women need more than one treatment session.
It’s typical for clients to need two to four sessions, each scheduled about a month apart, to achieve optimal results. You can safely receive up to six treatments if needed.
