5 Days After Kybella: A Guide

As a revolutionary non-surgical double chin treatment, Kybella in Long Beach, CA gradually eliminates fat from under your chin. By revealing a tightened and firmer jawline without surgery, this injectable treatment stands out with its benefits.

Since Kybella injections only take a few minutes, you might be looking forward to the treatment itself. To help you enjoy the benefits of Kybella without any surprises, we’ve compiled this quick guide to help you learn more about what you can expect after getting Kybella.

Kybella Recovery Tips

Since Kybella is an injectable treatment, there’s no need for the downtime associated with surgery.

But you still need to keep a few suggestions in mind for maximum comfort and side effect management.

Depending on your desired chin profile, you can expect to see optimal results after a series of Kybella appointments. These recovery tips will help ensure an enjoyable experience.

You May Experience Redness, Bruising, Swelling, and Discomfort

Following each Kybella appointment, you may experience redness, bruising, and swelling. While these side effects may initially make your chin look more prominent, they are a sign that the active ingredient in Kybella is hard at work breaking down unwanted fat cells. You can apply cold compresses to minimize swelling and bruising.

To have realistic expectations for your Kybella aftercare, you should know that you may also experience some pain around the treatment site due to this product’s interaction with your fat cells. This discomfort is only temporary and will resolve on its own after a few days. If you find it bothering you, you can take over-the-counter pain medication as instructed by Dr. Waltzman or Carissa Brown, RN.

You May Feel Numbness

Another of our top post-Kybella tips is to be aware that you might feel numb around the treated area, which is another effect of the deoxycholic acid interacting with your fat cells.

In some cases, warm or cold compresses can help with the numbness. For many other recipients, the numbness is minor enough to not require any intervention at all. In either case, this effect goes away in a few days and does not leave any lasting signs.
