¿Qué es Kybella®?
El Kybella se crea a partir de una sustancia natural del cuerpo llamada ácido desoxicólico, que es una molécula que descompone la grasa y absorbe la grasa de la dieta. El Kybella es una dosis concentrada de esta sustancia que combate la grasa y ataca las células adiposas hasta destruirlas, lo que dificulta el aumento de peso en esa zona específica.
Beneficios del tratamiento
¿Cómo funciona Kybella®?
El Kybella se administra mediante una serie de inyecciones en forma de rejilla. Esto garantiza que el líquido se distribuya uniformemente y se dirija a toda la zona de tratamiento. El principio activo de KYBELLA® es el ácido desoxicólico sintético. El ácido desoxicólico es una molécula natural del organismo que contribuye a la descomposición y absorción de las grasas alimentarias. Cuando se inyecta en la grasa de debajo de la barbilla, KYBELLA® destruye las células adiposas, lo que produce una notable reducción de la plenitud debajo de la barbilla. Una vez destruidas, estas células ya no pueden almacenar ni acumular grasa, por lo que no es necesario realizar más tratamientos una vez alcanzado el objetivo estético deseado. Los resultados finales del tratamiento no se verán hasta 4 semanas después del último tratamiento.
Just about anyone who struggles with stubborn fat under the chin is a good candidate for Kybella.
Kybella has received FDA approval for the submental fat region (under the chin), but can in certain cases be used to treat other areas, such as knees, back fat and similar areas.
The actual Kybella injections are not very painful, however, there is a noticeable burning that happens for about five to ten minutes after the injections. Derma Health works hard to keep you comfortable during the entire process, providing numbing cream prior to the injections and offering ice packs immediately after the injection.
The injection process does not take more than one or two minutes, however, this treatment does take extra time due to the numbing time and the time needed to outline and grid the injection sites. You should allow at least an hour for this appointment.
One of the best things about Kybella is that the results are permanent! Once fat cells are killed, they cannot grow back. Regaining weight in that area is much difficult, but it is possible if a lot of weight is gained after the treatment as fat cells from other areas expand.
Everyone is different, so depending on the goals you are trying to attain, the number of treatments will vary. Many clients need between 2-4 treatments for optimal result, but some may need as many as 6 Kybella treatments.
Prior to your treatment appointment you will need to remove all makeup or the provider can do it for you. The skin is then prepped with an antiseptic topically to prevent the introduction of bacteria during the injections.
Immediately after the injections, you will feel a burning sensation that will dissipate after a few minutes. You will want to keep applying cooling packs to the area to help with swelling. You will definitely swell and possibly bruise, depending on how you respond. Swelling may last for days, so do not get this treatment before an event! You may also experience numbness, redness and areas of hardening post treatment. This is all normal and part of the fat elimination process!
Your provider will review your full medical history with you to determine any potential contraindications to the recommended treatment. The key rules outs are:
- Severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis
- History or presence of multiple severe allergies
- History of allergies to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins
Tell your doctor if you have a history of cold sores (oral herpes virus) as you may require treatment to prevent a breakout.
Side effects are rare, and most are mild or moderate in nature, with a short duration. Some reports of facial muscle weakness and trouble swallowing have occurred be resolved without intervention in a few days.
