How Long does Kybella Swelling Last

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that can be used to treat a double chin, nasolabial folds, and other facial fat deposits. The treatment involves injecting small amounts of the drug directly into specific facial contouring areas. Patients will often see improvement in as little as a few months after treatment and may be able to show off their new appearance at the next party!

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a new injectable treatment that can reduce the fat under your chin. It’s made up of deoxycholic acid, naturally found in the body. Deoxycholic acid attacks and destroys fat cells, making them unable to store or absorb fat.

Kybella is FDA-approved for patients with moderate to severe neck folds who have not responded well to other treatments, such as liposuction or laser resurfacing.

Who is a Candidate for this Treatment?

  • You have a moderate amount of fat under your chin.
  • You are in good health.
  • Your weight is stable and not fluctuating significantly from one day to the next, with no signs of an eating disorder or other medical condition that would prevent Kybella from working correctly, such as diabetes or high cholesterol levels.
  • You are not pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning on becoming pregnant for at least eight weeks after treatment (we recommend waiting about two months).

Benefits of Kybella

Reduces fat under the chin, creating a more defined jawline

The chin and jawline are two parts of the face that fat can affect. Fat deposits under your chin can cause it to droop, making you appear older than you really are. This is called a “fat” or “double chin.”

A fat jawline is also common among people with excess fat on their faces; this is because the muscles around these areas tend to shrink with age and use up more nutrients, leaving them less able to support bone structure.

It’s important for men who want to improve their looks and health to look good and feel good!

Little to no downtime

Kybella is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses an injection to reduce fat in your chin or neck area. The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and you can go home immediately after being stitched up.

There’s no downtime required, so you won’t have to miss out on work or other activities while recovering from Kybella therapy; however, it’s important to follow post-procedure instructions carefully so that you don’t experience any complications during recovery time.

The injections are actually very safe—the risks associated with this type of treatment are low even when compared with other types of injections (for example, Botox).

Safe for people of all ages and ethnicities.

Kybella is safe for people of all ages and ethnicities. It has no known risks or side effects, so you can rest assured that your doctor will recommend the procedure only if it’s right for you. As with any medical procedure, there are fees associated with it—but Kybella is less expensive than many other cosmetic treatments on the market.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

You will need to speak with your doctor about how many treatments you should have. The most common number of treatments is two or three, but some have had as many as four treatments. These numbers can vary based on the size of your area being treated, how much fat is present, and how deep an indentation you want to correct.

 Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that does not require anesthesia or injections into the body (as laser resurfacing does), so it’s easy for anyone to participate in this procedure at home!

When Will I See the Results?

The results will vary depending on your body, but most people report seeing a difference in chin fat after only one treatment.

You should start seeing results as early as three weeks after the first treatment and improve over time.

Will There Be Any Downtime After My Treatment?

You will have no downtime after your treatment. While you may experience swelling and bruising for a few days, it should be gone within a week or two. You can return to work immediately after treatment, but please avoid heavy physical activity during the healing process.

Are There Any Side Effects to Treatments?

Kybella is approved for use by patients with fat deposits under the chin, around the jawline, or neck.

Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruises after treatment. These symptoms should go away within a few days or weeks, but if they persist beyond two weeks, you should contact your doctor to discuss further treatment options.

Other side effects include pain, numbness, or tingling during treatment; these symptoms usually disappear within a few weeks after the completion of treatment (usually after six months). If they do not resolve over time, then there’s likely something wrong with your body that needs further investigation by your doctor before proceeding with any further treatments such as Kybella™ injections, etc.

How Long Does Kybella’s Swelling Last?

Kybella can last up to two weeks, but it’s most likely to be gone after about a week. Swelling is usually more pronounced on the first day of treatment and gradually subsides over time. If you have noticeable swelling, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible so we can advise you on how to manage it safely during this time.

Most patients will see improvement after the first treatment. Some patients may need additional treatments, but it is not common for people to have noticeable results with just one treatment.

Some patients will be satisfied with their results after a single injection and may not need more injections. Others may require multiple injections to fully correct facial swelling (or “excess fat”).


The results of Kybella can vary from person to person, but many patients who have had multiple treatments see improvement on the first treatment. It is essential to monitor your Kybella-treated areas regularly and ask your doctor any questions that arise.
