Can Kybella be used anywhere besides the chin?

Does the Kybella treatment hurt?

The Kybella injection can be a bit painful, but your provider will use numbing cream to make it more comfortable for patients. Patients are recommended to take a pain reliever before their session to ease some of the pain.

How many treatments will it take?

Results typically take time and more than one treatment to show and each session can last anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Initially, people may show swelling immediately after the session, but you can schedule your next session 6 weeks after and results should start to show after additional treatments. Depending on the person, it should take no more than 6 treatments.

How long do the results last?

Kybella is meant to produce long-term or permanent results as the destroyed fat cells mostly cannot regenerate themselves.
