We Offer Kybella Treatments in Astoria, NY
What is Kybella Used For
Kybella is a injectable medication that is used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as submental fullness. Kybella is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella works by breaking down the fat cells under the chin, resulting in a reduction in submental fullness. At Juves Aesthetics, we will determine if Kybella is right for you and create a personalized treatment plan. Kybella treatments are typically given in a series of injections over the course of several weeks. The number of treatments needed will depend on the amount of fat below your chin and your desired results. Kybella is an effective alternative to surgery for those looking to improve their appearance without undergoing an invasive procedure.

How to prepare for a Kybella appointment
Kybella is a safe and effective treatment, but there are a few things you can do to prepare for your appointment and ensure the best possible results. First, it is important to avoid taking any blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for at least one week before your appointment. Kybella can cause bruising and swelling, so if you are prone to bruising easily, it is also important to take extra care in the days leading up to your appointment. Finally, be sure to drink plenty of water in the days before and after your Kybella treatment. This will help to keep your skin hydrated and promote healing.
What to expect on the day of Kybella appointment
Kybella is a medical-grade injectable that is used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, or “double chin.” Kybella is made of a naturally-occurring molecule that helps the body break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella treatments are administered by our highly trained staff at Juves Aesthetics. Kybella treatments usually take 15-20 minutes, and most patients require 2-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Kybella is a very safe and effective treatment with minimal downtime.
After each Kybella treatment session, it is important to avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours, and to apply ice to the treated area for 10-15 minutes every few hours for the first day or two. It is also important to avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least one week after each Kybella treatment session. Kybella can cause temporary swelling, redness, bruising, and numbness in the treated area; these side effects typically resolve within a few days.
