Kybella Raleigh is an FDA-approved fat removal treatment offered at Beauty Co. in Raleigh, NC. It is primarily used to eliminate excess fat from beneath the chin, but it can also be used to eliminate unwanted fat from the neck. Read on to find out whether you qualify for this life-changing fat removal treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
To determine whether Kybella Raleigh is right for you, it is crucial that you attend an initial consultation. During this initial consultation, we will evaluate your submental region to ensure that you qualify. Among the things we look for in a good candidate are skin health, overall health, commitment to a healthy lifestyle, and realistic expectations. Here’s a closer look at some of the signs you may be a good candidate for this fat removal treatment.
You Have Healthy Skin
It is very important that your skin is fairly healthy to qualify for this treatment. The healthier your skin is, the sooner it will snap into its appropriate position. If your skin is inelastic, it may take a little longer for you to fully enjoy the results of your treatment because you will have to wait for your skin to settle flush against your new contours.
Also, it is important that your skin is not irritated at the time of your appointment. Before your treatment session begins, we will assess your chin and neck for skin irritation. If you have a sunburn, eczema flare-up, or acne outbreak, your session will need to be rescheduled. To reduce the chance that you will need to reschedule your appointment, take very good care of your skin in the weeks leading up to your scheduled injection session.
You Are Fairly Healthy
We will also discuss your health thoroughly when you come in for your initial consultation. Due to the non-invasive nature of this fat removal treatment, most people are healthy enough to qualify. However, you need to hold off on this treatment if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant in the very near future.
During your initial consultation, we will evaluate the severity of your submental fullness, determine its cause, and discuss your aesthetic goals. Depending on these three factors, you may need between two and six injection sessions spaced at least four weeks apart. Therefore, if you plan to try to become pregnant in three months, but you need four sessions to achieve satisfactory results, you will need to hold off on treatment temporarily.
An Additional Note
You also need to be able to comply with all preparation instructions to qualify for this non-invasive fat removal treatment. One of the most important preparation guidelines is not consuming NSAIDs for several days before your treatment. Therefore, you may not qualify if you have a heart or blood condition that requires you to take blood-thinners daily.
You Are Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle
You also must be committed to a healthy lifestyle to be considered a good candidate for Kybella Raleigh. While the deoxycholic acid we inject destroys some of the fat cells in the submental region, it does not destroy them all. It is worth noting that the fat cells destroyed by the deoxycholic acid are gone forever; your body can’t regenerate any new fat cells to take the place of those that died.
However, the fat cells that remain in the treatment area are whole. They are still capable of expanding to accommodate extra fat storage. Therefore, to maintain your ideal contours, you need to balance what you eat and what you do. As a good general rule of thumb, people who receive a fat removal treatment should not gain more than 10 pounds of fat after their course of treatments is complete.
You Have Realistic Expectations About the Results
It is also very important for you to have realistic expectations about the results. For example, you must understand that this treatment only removes a percentage of the fat cells around the injection sites. While the fat loss that occurs will be permanent, you must still take care to balance what you eat and do. You also need to understand that you may need several injection sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve your desired results.
Moreover, you should understand that the results of your treatment will not be readily apparent. Rather, you will have to wait for a couple of weeks as your lymphatic system picks up, processes, and flushes out enough of the destroyed fat cells for you to notice. Then, you will have to wait several more weeks for all of the destroyed fat cells to be eliminated. Individual results vary, but it can take up to six weeks for the final results to become apparent.
