Kybella

A product for eliminating localized fat “pockets” is called Kybella. Kybella was first introduced into use for aesthetic medicine clinics in Canada. Today, injections of Kybella in Stamford clinics are gaining in popularity as a well-known method of non-invasive therapy for reducing fat.

Injections of this infiltrate are most effective in removing subcutaneous fat in the double chin area. The drug allows retraction and renewal of the contour without the need for surgical intervention.

Kybella-based intralipotherapy is an excellent method of “burning” fat. This synthetic deoxycholic acid was developed by specialists of Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, USA specifically for the removal of “double chin” fat. After its injection, the membrane of the fat capsule effectively disintegrates and the body flushes it away.

Injections of this product are prescribed for those who have not been able to eliminate fat by other methods, such as exercise or nutrition. Often the origin of a double chin is genetic and so in such situations, Kybella is ideal.

This non-invasive treatment method is most effective for clinically healthy women and men over 18 years of age. Depending on the individual characteristics of the patients, the treatment courses can last from 2 to 6 sessions with an intermediate interval of 4 to 6 weeks. Each intralipotherapy session occupies about 30 minutes.

Correct treatment procedure

First, a specialist in aesthetic cosmetics carefully specifies an accurate diagnosis. After the date of the first injection is set, it is recommended not to take alcohol or anti-inflammatory drugs a week before. This will help you to get through the course of treatment more effectively.

After the consultation, several pictures of the treatment sites are taken to compare the resulting changes. Then a local anesthetic is applied to the skin. After 30 minutes a doctor starts drawing a "mesh" on the treated area.

The procedure takes about 15/20 minutes of injections. Then the doctor will apply localized cold to reduce inflammation.

What happens after the injection?

The side effects of Kybella are well understood and the likelihood of serious complications is minimal. Immediately after treatment there is swelling which may take 72 hours or more to dissipate. Bruising, itching, redness, and general discomfort may also appear.

Some patients notice numbness at the injection site or partial loss of sensation, which in some cases last up to two months. In case the Kybella injections were made in the double chin area, then the lateral effects may be noticeable in a few following days only.
