Your Kybella® Procedure
Your Kybella® treatment takes less than a half an hour to complete, and it can be performed right in our medical offices. Before your Kybella® treatment, Dr. Vuich will analyze your submental area to determine where to place each injection. After marking the area, your Kybella® treatment will be delivered using an incredibly fine needle. At Renew MediSpa we routinely numb the area first to make your Kybella® treatment more comfortable.
Dr. Vuich will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your anatomy. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2-4 treatment sessions. Dr. Vuich recommends waiting 5 to 6 weeks in between treatments. While results might be visible after one treatment, many of our patients undergo an average of 2-4 treatments.
Kybella® is generally dosed by the “vial”. A single vial of Kybella® contains 2 ml of product. There is a set protocol for delivery of the product based on the anatomic size of the area to be treated. It is not uncommon for a full treatment course to utilize 10 to 16 ml. Therefore, over the course of your injection sessions, expect to use on average 5 to 8 vials.
At Renew MediSpa, we can also combine Kybella® treatments with a TruSculpt 3D session to further enhance the result for some patients. This is especially useful if there is a secondary problem of loose skin in the area in addition to the fat pad. Sometimes we start with a session or two of Kybella®, and finish it off with TruSculpt 3D rather than re-injecting.
