Successfully losing weight is one of the greatest accomplishments a person can have. However, nothing ruins that happiness more than continuing pockets of fat. A person could lose 20 or 30 pounds of fat from their body, but there will still be fat left over. It’s not their fault, it’s just an unfortunate side effect of weight loss.
The good news is there is a solution for getting rid of this fat — Kybella®. Allure Rejuvenation & Anti Aging offers this fat-killing solution to our patients in the Hallandale Beach area.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a non-invasive and non-surgical option for fat removal. It’s the latest dermal filler offering from the world-renowned Allergan brand. Although, unlike the usual dermal fillers which are used to prevent wrinkles and smooth the skin, Kybella® works by actively removing the fat stored in the body.
How Does it Work?
The secret to Kybella®’s success is the deoxycholic acid that it’s made from. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule which helps destroy and remove fat cells in the body. Kybella®’s advantage isn’t reducing the fat within the cell, but killing the cell itself. Because of this, once the fat is removed from the body, there is no chance of it returning. Once you’ve reached your weight-loss goal, you no longer need continued treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
The best candidates are healthy adults who are looking to get rid of annoying leftover fat from their bodies. There is no age limit to Kybella®, but there are a few pre-existing conditions that you may have which could preclude you from using this treatment. Some of these conditions are:
- Blood clotting issues
- Previous cosmetic surgery in the treatment areas
- Pregnancy or breastfeeding
You should also tell us any medications you’re currently taking, especially ones that might affect the flow of blood in your system.
What is Treatment Like?
Treatment begins with your initial consultation. During this meeting, we’ll go over your aesthetic goals and inform you how Kybella® could help you reach them. We’ll then map out your treatment areas and schedule your first appointment.
Once it’s appointment time, you’ll come into our office and we’ll begin your treatment. Because Kybella® is non-invasive and non-surgical, there is no need for general or local anesthesia. The only thing you’ll need is a topical numbing cream.
After the numbing cream goes into effect, we’ll introduce the Kybella® into your system. The numbing cream won’t completely remove the pain of the procedure, but it will reduce the pain to only a small pinch and some pressure.
What Happens Next?
Once your first appointment is completed, we’ll schedule your next one. You will be able to see a difference right away, but the best results are seen after a handful of treatments spaced about a month apart. Most patients require between three and six sessions.
You can expect some minute side effects in the few days after your appointment. The most common side effects are some swelling and tenderness around the treated areas and redness.
If you’re ready to finally rid your body of the pockets of fat that just won’t seem to go away, call Allure Rejuvenation & Anti Aging to schedule your initial consultation for Kybella®.
