What Happens During Kybella Treatment?

When you use social media platforms to stay connected to family and friends, you don’t want to worry about the double-chin showing up in your selfies. Looking for a med spa San Antonio residents have come to love and trust? At Spa Black in San Antonio, TX, we can show you what happens during a Kybella® treatment that gives you a firm and beautifully contoured chin.

Kybella Treatments for Leaner and Firmer Face Lines

Before Your First Visit

If you are interested in transforming your chin with lean contours and lines, call us or visit us online to schedule a consultation. You can also fill out all of your paperwork online.

You may also want to check with your personal healthcare provider before you schedule an appointment. Your doctor knows you and your situation and may be able to recommend the best aesthetic procedure for you.

Starting at the Beginning of the Treatment

During your first visit, a qualified esthetician will consult with you to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment. If you are in general good health and haven’t had complications like recent neck surgery, you are likely to be a great candidate.

Before you start Kybella or any cosmetic treatment, you should tell your esthetician if you have had any of the following:

  • Surgery on your face, neck, or chin
  • Medical issues that affect the surrounding area
  • Bleeding issues
  • Previous cosmetic treatments in the same area

In addition, let us know if you are:

  • Pregnant or plan to become pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • Taking blood thinners, or any other medication

Once you are given the green light, we will schedule an appointment with you for this simple and convenient treatment. Because we recommend rest after your treatment is finished, you may want to take an afternoon off work or have a treatment done right before the weekend.

What Can I Expect During My Treatment?

Preparing for Treatment

To prepare for your treatment, be sure to wash your face and neck thoroughly to reduce any risk of infection. You should also avoid ibuprofen or acetaminophen before your visit, though you may take these medications afterward.

The First Step

After you come in for your scheduled appointment, we do everything we can to make you feel comfortable. A staff member will clean the chin area and prepare the site for the injections, marking the affected area.

Administering Kybella

We then administer local anesthesia to help you relax throughout your treatment. Once you feel nice and numb we begin the injection process. Very small needles are used to apply the serum. Patients generally receive two to four injections per treatment, and the process is quick and painless.

All Done! 

The esthetician may then use ice compresses to reduce swelling and double-check that the treatment site looks clean and healthy. You should be able to be in and out of the office in just under an hour!

After Your Treatment Is Finished

Once you leave our office, you may want to take some time to rest. Allowing your body to heal can help the process move quickly and without complications. Be sure to follow all the instructions you are given and allow yourself some time to recover.

You may also use ice to help reduce swelling or if it makes yourself feel more comfortable. We may also recommend anti-inflammatory medication.

However, your treatments aren’t quite finished yet. For the injections to really start making a difference, up to five more injections may be needed. You should start noticing results after about two treatments.

What Can I Expect During My Future Appointments?

Depending on your specific situation, you may need one to five more appointments, often spaced about a month apart on average. Each session is about the same, so you can expect to spend about the same amount of time in our office for each visit.

You should also feel comfortable during each appointment. If you ever feel uncomfortable, please let your esthetician know right away. A team of trained staff members can assist you with your needs.

Kybella Is a Great New Nonsurgical Treatment

To ensure a treatment that is efficient and effective, you want a surgeon, esthetician, and injection specialist with experience and expertise. Our practitioners are all trained and have had amazing results with their treatments and practices.

We will ask you about the goals you have for aesthetic improvement, complete a thorough medical history, and perform a medical exam. Our team won’t do anything without your approval and consent, and our goal is to help you feel better about your appearance.

FAQ

Does the Injection Start to Work During My Appointment?

Each injection is designed to dissolve fat that gathers under your chin or protrudes from the top of your neck. Although the injections may start working right away, the progress is gradual for your safety. We won’t put our patients at risk, but instead, encourage results that last and that benefit the patient.

The process is also more effective with each treatment. For more severe cases, you may visit the office once a month for six months, or once every six weeks for six months. Some patients only need two treatments, and they may even be spaced as far apart as three months.

Will I Experience Pain During My Appointment?

A friendly and helpful staff member ensures you feel comfortable and relaxed during your appointment. A topical numbing cream may be used to make each injection easier. We also administer a local anesthetic to numb the entire treatment area.

These steps help you by making your treatment essentially painless. We also check on you throughout your appointment to ensure you are doing okay and that the treatment is running smoothly.

What Happens In Between Treatments?

The injections go to work, tracking down fat and dissolving problem areas. You may not notice the difference after one treatment, but most patients start noticing a marked difference after the second treatment is finished.

This serum is also known as deoxycholic acid, which is given in controlled amounts to ensure the safety of the patient. Our FDA-approved treatment works continually over several weeks to give your face an entirely new shape. You can get your confidence back with this incredible new treatment!

Is There Any Reason I Can’t Get Treatment?

While this treatment is a great option for most of our patients, you may want to hold off for a short time if:

  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have a wedding or big family event coming up
  • You are scheduled for a job interview in the very near future
  • You aren’t able to get any time off work

Fortunately, we’ll still be here when you’re done. If you want to make an appointment, simply schedule a time for after your event is over. We’re ready to help you feel amazing at any time of the year!

Confidence goes a long way. A few ways that an appointment can help you include:

Increasing Your Confidence 

Did you know that increasing your confidence can save you time? The reason is that confident people tend to make informed decisions more quickly than people who suffer from low self-esteem. If your confidence level is up, you will feel better about creating a great presentation rather than spending time worrying about how you might mess it up.

Get in and Out Without Hassle

Our team works efficiently so you don’t spend any more time in our office than necessary. You don’t need to be here long to enjoy the effects of a Kybella treatment. Get in and get out and get on with your day.

Self Care Is the Key to Well-Being

We take care of you from the second you walk in the door. You should feel at home in our office, even if you are only going to be here for less than an hour. If you need to talk, we love to talk! If you want to relax, we have a mask to cover your eyes.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Any time a patient goes through a cosmetic treatment, that patient sees life-changing improvement. Gaining confidence, receiving your treatment from experienced technicians, and taking care of yourself can make you a happier person. Taking away worry about yourself can help you focus on helping others, including your family and your co-workers.
