The Perfect Dose
Conveniently located to serve Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Chandler
The Perfect Dose offers Kybella to help you get rid of excess fat under your chin. Let’s face it: there’s no such thing as “targeted weight loss,” no matter how intense your workouts are or how strict your diet is. With Kybella, Scottsdale patients can finally banish those unwanted fat cells for good.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
During your Kybella treatment, multiple injections will be administered into the target areas. The injection sites will be marked for increased precision. If you are sensitive to pain, a topical numbing agent may be administered beforehand to prevent discomfort.
The exact number of injections depends on the amount of fat in the area being treated. Each treatment is tailored to address your aesthetic goals. The total number of sessions also depends on your goals, but sessions are generally spaced one month apart and should not exceed six treatments.
AREAS TO BE TREATED:
Kybella is typically used for the submental area, or under the chin. However, it can also be used to treat other areas of the body where excess fat tends to gather. These off-label applications of Kybella destroy the excess fat cells in those areas.
IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR KYBELLA INJECTIONS
Most patients are ideal candidates for Kybella. Good candidates for this treatment are patients who want to experience cosmetic improvement without undergoing surgery. If you have a skin infection in the target area, you may not be advised to undergo this minimally invasive procedure until the infection has been resolved.
An initial consultation at The Perfect Dose will include a physical examination of your target areas. Photographs may be taken for before-and-after comparison. Your medical history will be reviewed to assess your compatibility and any potential risk factors.
Discuss your current medications, underlying conditions, and previous treatments or surgeries. You must let our skincare expert know if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to conceive soon.
An individualized treatment plan will be developed to achieve your aesthetic goals. The process will be discussed thoroughly, including recovery/aftercare directions. If you have any questions, our skincare expert will provide you with the answers so you can make an informed decision.
How to prepare for a kybella treatment
Kybella injections can cause temporary swelling and bruising after the treatment. This is normal and should go away in 5 to 7 days. Because of these side effects, it is highly recommended to avoid all medications, supplements, or lifestyle choices that could result in aggravated swelling or bruising afterwards.
Avoid taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like Aspirin or herbal supplements like Vitamin E or omega 3 for at least a week before treatment. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol to get the full benefits of a Kybella treatment.
You can take Arnica to reduce bruising and swelling, as long as it is safe for your overall health. People with active heart disease or uncontrolled high blood pressure should explore other medication aside from Arnica.
If hair is on your chin, it is best to shave before your Kybella appointment. If you tend to get irritation from shaving, shave at least 48 hours before your appointment.
Physically active people should schedule their workout at least 3 to 5 days after a Kybella appointment. Avoid sun, heat, or any exposure that can cause you to sweat excessively for 3 to 5 days to ensure that Kybella will last and work its full benefits on the treated area.
