Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella?

Submental Fat Concerns

Kybella is specifically designed to address excess fat in the submental area. If you have concerns about the appearance of a double chin and want to reduce fat in this region, you may be a good candidate for Kybella.

Good Overall Health

Candidates for Kybella should generally be in good overall health. It’s crucial to disclose any existing medical conditions or current medications during your consultation.

Realistic Expectations

Having realistic expectations is crucial. Kybella is designed to target fat beneath the chin. It is not a substitute for weight loss or a solution for loose or sagging skin.

Understanding the Treatment Process

Good candidates understand that they may need multiple treatment sessions before seeing results. They should also be aware that there may be swelling or bruising in the injection site following treatment.

No History of Allergies to Kybella Components

Inform your healthcare provider of any known allergies, especially if you have a history of allergic reactions to any medications. Your provider may suggest an alternative treatment if needed. 

No History of Trouble Swallowing

If you have a history of difficulty swallowing or other swallowing disorders, you should discuss this with your healthcare provider before considering Kybella.

No Active Infections or Skin Issues

It’s generally advisable to avoid Kybella injections if you have an active infection or skin issues in the treatment area. Your healthcare provider will assess the condition of your skin during the consultation to ensure it’s ready to receive treatment.

Not Undergoing Treatment in the Submental Area

If you are planning or have recently undergone surgery in the submental area, Kybella treatment may not be suitable until you have fully healed.
