Ladies, we introduce you to this beautiful medical innovation that is Kybella. Kybella offers a non-invasive approach to getting rid of their double chins without having to suffer intolerable pain under the knife. Kybella has a lot of benefits, and more women are getting this treatment with satisfying results.
Kybella is painless, and it was also approved by the Food and Drug Administration back in 2015 as a legitimate double chin treatment for adults. However, some people are still clueless about what to do next after getting Kybella.
Worry no more because this article discusses the things a patient should do after doing Kybella. We will also discuss the basics of Kybella, the things we need to remember before, during, and after getting the double chin treatment.
Kybella in a Nutshell
For those who do not know what Kybella is all about, it is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to get rid of the double chin. This procedure promises patients to have their double chins melted away without liposuction or invasive surgical procedures.
Kybella is an injectable treatment similar to Botox or dermal fillers. The only difference is that, unlike the two other treatments, Kybella’s results are permanent. Kybella has the fantastic ability to permanently dissolve the patient’s double chin when adequately injected into the submental fat. There is no need for any anesthesia since it is a painless treatment compared to invasive double chin treatments known to man.
Benefits of Kybella Treatment
Kybella has a lot of known benefits to its patients. That’s why many women prefer this as a better alternative compared to other commonly known double chin treatments available in many skincare clinics today.
Some of the known benefits of Kybella include permanent results, as the body cannot produce new fat cells once the old fat cells are destroyed. It is also known to be a fast procedure, allowing the patient to continue their daily activities after the process. It is also known that the injectable helps promote a more youthful appearance to the patient.
What to Do After Receiving Kybella
Since the procedure is fast and quick, the doctors do not necessarily require the patients to take extended breaks to recover from the process. Most patients carry on with their everyday activities without having to take sick leaves to recover. However, there are some things that patients must remember after receiving the treatment.
Do Not Touch The Chin Area
We all know how excited patients can be to see the effects of the Kybella after receiving the double chin treatment. Some of them might not help but touch the chin area after the procedure.
The doctors advise against touching the chin area after the injections because it might aggravate the swelling that accompanies the procedure in the first three days after the treatment.
Some patients might experience swelling after Kybella, but it is not severe, and it goes away after three days. While it is not highly recommended to take a week-long break, a couple of days’ rest would be much better just to let the swelling settle down.
Use Ice to Help With the Swelling
As mentioned above, some patients might experience aftereffects such as slight swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the general area of the chin where the doctor administered the injections. To reduce pain, bruising, and swelling, putting an ice pack around the injected region on and off for a few minutes can help significantly. It also numbs the area thanks to its low temperature.
Alternatively, patients can take paracetamol to ease the pain and discomfort. Doctors are advising against taking aspirin, on the other hand, because aspirin has blood-thinning effects that can lead to increased prominence in bruising.
Putting very gentle pressure while using the ice pack around the injected area is also recommended. In the first 24 hours, patients can easily see the difference after putting ice on and off the chin area.
Adjust the Sleeping Positions
It is also highly recommended that patients adjust their sleeping patterns and habits for a few days to avoid discomfort or pain after receiving Kybella. Experts advise Kybella patients to wear a tight head wrap around their neck or chin area, even going to sleep wearing it. This precaution prevents them from having unnecessary pressure applied to the injected area that might cause bruising or swelling.
Resume Applying Creams and Gels The Next Day
Those who take care of their skin everyday must skip their nighttime skincare routine for a day and resume the day after they received Kybella treatments. This is because applying skincare products on their face requires them to massage certain areas, aggravating the injected spots and making them more swollen.
Thus, they may apply moisturizers, sunscreens, serums, or any other skincare product the next day to avoid complications. That being said, they can still wash their face and take a shower like they usually do. They need to put very gentle pressure on the said parts.
Avoid Strenuous Activities for Three Days
We mentioned earlier that there is no need for Kybella patients to stop doing their normal activities after receiving the treatment, but that does not go the same way when we are talking about strenuous activities.
Strenuous activities put pressure on the facial and neck muscles in one way or another, and this might cause increased swelling or bruise on the injected area. Experts advise Kybella patients to pause activities such as exercising or any gym activity three days after receiving the treatment.
Kybella is a great non-invasive alternative to liposuction or any other cosmetic surgery procedure known as double chin treatments over the years. It is painless, fast, and has permanent results compared to other cosmetic surgery procedures. The discomfort will only last for three days maximum, and the patient can go back to living their new life with boosted confidence.
