What to Expect From Your First Kybella® Treatment

What to Expect From Your First Kybella® Treatment

Problem areas of fat aren’t welcome on any part of your body. But when the excess fat clings to the underside of your chin, it’s particularly troublesome. Even a small double chin can make you look heavier and older than you are. 

That’s why Dr. Peymon Zarreii offers Kybella® to his patients at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics in Delray Beach, Florida. With this convenient injectable treatment, he targets and destroys fat cells under your chin, giving you the improved profile you want. Plus, while Kybella was formulated to treat double chins, Dr. Zarreii can also apply this treatment to any other body part where you have unwanted fat accumulation. 

If you’re curious about this way to get rid of your double chin or another problem area, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s look at how Kybella works and what to expect with your first treatment. 

How Kybella works

Kybella is an FDA-approved, injection-based treatment specifically designed to treat submental fullness, or fat cells under your chin. But Dr. Zarreii doesn’t stop there. He also offers Kybella to reduce fat on your:

Some people call this treatment liposuction in a syringe because it’s such an effective way to eliminate fat cells. When Dr. Zarreii injects Kybella, he introduces deoxycholic acid into the area. Your body makes this acid naturally and uses it to break down fat cells. By injecting deoxycholic acid where you have unwelcome fat, you encourage your body to destroy and absorb the fat cells there.

In fact, because Kybella targets and destroys fat cells, the results are permanent — assuming you maintain your new shape with diet and exercise. The deoxycholic acid in Kybella ruins the fat cells, at which point your body goes to work absorbing and eliminating them. That way, you get results that last. 

What to expect at your Kybella appointment

If you’re ready to see what this groundbreaking injectable can do for you, make an appointment with Dr. Zarreii. At our office, he talks with you about your cosmetic or body contouring goals. That way, he can tailor the Kybella treatment to you. He lets you know how many injections you’ll need at each treatment and how many treatments will be required to get your ideal outcome. He also discusses the risk and benefits of Kybella, along with your other treatment options. 

Once you’re ready to get started, the actual treatment itself is relatively quick and painless. Most Kybella treatments take about 20 minutes. Dr. Zarreii applies a topical anesthetic or cold compress to keep you comfortable before he applies the injection at targeted locations. 

You don’t need to worry about taking any time off work afterward, although you may have some bruising and swelling at the injection site for a few days. 

The majority of people see results between two and four treatments spaced a month apart, but most require six sessions to fully reach their goal.
