What is the treatment like?
A Kybella treatment involves cleansing your skin, and then applying a specialized temporary tattoo to the area to be treated. This tattoo creates a grid pattern revealing the most effective placement for multiple tiny injections. The injections are not particularly painful but may create a burning sensation. The area can be numbed with a topical cream to make the experience more comfortable.
What is the recovery from Kybella injections?
The recovery from Kybella injections is not difficult, typically involving some swelling and bruising, which fades within a week or more. Most people can continue their normal social and work schedule, but it is advised that you take a few days off in case you are one of the rare patients that experiences more swelling. Swelling is often noticeable by you, but rarely noticeable by others.
What are the risks associated with Kybella injections?
The complications reported by the FDA include swelling, redness, bruising, and, rarely, temporary discomfort with swallowing or temporary asymmetric smile.
