TREATMENT OVERVIEW AND RECOVERY
A KYBELLA® treatment session takes less than 30 minutes at our San Francisco and Marin County offices. Our nurse injector, Ariel Kirk, is highly trained at administering injectables for our patients. Under the expert supervision of Dr. Delgado, they will administer between 10 and 20 injections of KYBELLA® beneath the chin at the precise depth where the fat cells exist. Patients typically require between two and four sessions to achieve the desired effect, with treatments spaced at one-month intervals. Patients with only minimal fat beneath the chin may achieve excellent results with just one treatment.
After the treatment, you can resume normal activities right away. While Kybella destroys fat cells within 15 minutes, the results of the treatment won’t be visible until the swelling subsides. The inflammation, which indicates that the body is responding to the treatment, usually lasts for three or four weeks. You may also experience some temporary numbness in the chin and jaw area.
