Kybella is an injectable fat removal treatment that is designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of excess fat. At Beauty Co. in Raleigh, NC, we understand that not everyone has the time or money for surgery. At the same time, we firmly believe everyone deserves to feel confident in their skin. If you are concerned about submental fullness and would like to learn more about this treatment, keep reading. We’re looking at how quickly this drug works and much more.
How Long Does Kybella Take To Start Working?
Kybella starts working immediately. However, you can’t expect to see the final results of your treatment the same day you leave our office. While the deoxycholic acid instantly gets to work breaking down the walls of the fat cells, the fat cells remain in your body for a time. Unlike liposuction, a procedure once considered the gold standard in fat removal, fat removal results are not derived from the fat cells being suctioned from the body.
Rather, the results of this treatment are derived from your lymphatic system flushing out the fat cells destroyed by the deoxycholic acid. How long this takes depends on several factors, including your overall health and the amount of excess fat destroyed during treatment. However, you can generally expect the job to take four to six weeks to be completed.
How Can I See My Final Results Faster?
To see your final results as quickly as possible, you need to maximize the efficiency of your lymphatic system. One of the most effective ways you can do this is to make sure you stay hydrated. However, maintaining sufficient hydration is not the only thing that is important for the efficiency of your lymphatic system. Another effective step you can take is to ensure you remain properly nourished. Make sure you eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
If you’re anxious to see your final results as quickly as possible, you should know that aerobic exercise needs to become your new best friend. Your lymphatic system is supported by your cardiovascular system, and your cardiovascular system is supported by aerobic exercise. If you’re satisfied with your weight, aim to get 2.5 hours of moderate aerobic exercise in five to 15 sessions throughout the week.
Will Anaerobic Exercise Help Me?
Anaerobic exercise is great for your health. It increases your bone density, mitigating your risk of a bone fracture in the event of a fall or another accident. It is also helpful when you’re trying to lose weight because muscle mass is much more metabolically active than fat. However, anaerobic exercise does not directly support your lymphatic system; it won’t hasten your results.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
You can generally expect to be considered a good candidate for deoxycholic acid injections if you are an adult with concerns about submental fullness. Nonetheless, this treatment is not appropriate for every adult with submental fullness concerns. For example, it is not appropriate for individuals who are suffering from obesity. Furthermore, it is not a good idea for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Can I Get This Treatment if I’m Overweight?
Yes, it is possible to qualify for Kybella injections if you are overweight. As a general rule, we look for people who are no more than 30 pounds from their ideal weight. The reason for this is that the more overweight you are, the more likely it is that you have a significant amount of excess fat in your submental region. The more fat there is in the area, the more likely it is that you will need multiple treatments to achieve adequate results.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
You may need between one and six treatment sessions spaced approximately four to six weeks apart to achieve satisfactory results. The reason injection sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart is that this interval gives your body adequate time to flush out the destroyed fat cells. You will be able to see your results and decide whether you want another treatment session.
Several factors affect how many treatment sessions you will need. For example, the cause of your submental fullness will affect the number of sessions that will be required for you to feel confident in your appearance. If your submental fullness is caused by the natural aging process or poor posture, you may only need an injection session or two. On the other hand, if your submental fullness is caused by excess weight, you may need five or six treatment sessions.
