Back in our January segment, I shared the story of my experience with Kybella. Kybella is the first and only product on the market that is FDA approved for the treatment of submental fat, or in other words, your double chin. My entire life, I have disliked my side profile because the little bit of fat under my chin kept me from being able to have a nice jawline. A few months ago, I told you about my first treatment with Kybella. Today, I want to tell you about my last two treatments.
I received my second treatment six weeks after my first procedure, As before, I was marked but instead of numbing the area with local injections, I applied an ice pack. This yields better results and minimizes the chance of bruising. After my before pictures were taken, I received multiple injections of the Kybella product in very precise locations under my chin. Like the first time, the area felt tight or even sore like a “charlie horse” would feel and I experienced some minimal discomfort for roughly an hour. Over the next few days, I had minor swelling, much as I did after my first treatment, but after four days it had decreased.
A month later, I received my third treatment of Kybella. The process was the same regarding the steps. I had before pictures taken, was marked, and numbed my neck with an ice pack. My final treatment was tailored to treat specific areas of fullness that were still left behind, so not as much product had to be used. I have a few more weeks until I can see my full results, but I have been very satisfied with the change in my jawline.
I would definitely recommend the Kybella treatment to anyone who wants to be rid of submental fat. Although I experienced a little discomfort, the process was generally painless and the swelling was bearable. While I wouldn’t hesitate to have this treatment again, it won’t be necessary, because the effects of Kybella are permanent.
