MY EXPERIENCE WITH KYBELLA

Learn all about my personal experience with this powerful under-chin lifting and tightening non-surgical product and see if it is the right fit for your anti-aging needs.




I'm one of those providers that like to try the products/treatments I recommend to my patients and clients. I like to tell them how it feels, what to expect, complications that may arise, and so on. 


I brought on Kybella to my practice for a couple of reasons. First, there aren't very many products out there for under the chin and neck regions.


BEFORE & AFTER PATIENT PICS USING KYBELLA

Some of the treatments out there are: Ultherapy (supposed to help tighten the skin), #coolsculpting (freeze the fat), and Kybella (chemical destruction of fat). 


Cool Sculpting is getting some good results (but the machine is really expensive to purchase), and I'm not yet sold on Ultherapy's results (plus I heard it hurts like hell). 


So, hence Kybella. It is kind of a spendy #beautytreatment and it takes several treatments to see results, but it works and it is permanent. 


Well, like I said, I like to try it out on myself before my clients so I can tell them how it feels. 

It's kind of a spendy treatment and it takes several treatments to see results, but it works and it is permanent. 

My Experience


My experience with #Kybella is that it does work, however it does hurt a bit. I did swell and I ached down the muscles in my neck too. 


I was also one of the unlucky 4% who suffered a nerve injury to my lateral mandibular nerve. So because that injury to the nerve, whenever I smiled, talked or ate, I looked like I had suffered a stroke. Not fun!! It lasted for about 8 weeks too!


My kids all made fun of me and I was the butt of many jokes. However, the experience taught me how it feels to have an adverse event, because they can and do happen on occasion. 


Would I Recommend It?

Yes I would and I do, but I do go over the possible adverse effects that could happen with the client and I show them my pictures and let them know of my experience. 

Anyway, would I do it again? Yes, I would. Would I recommend it to others? Yes I would and I do, but I do go over the possible adverse effects that could happen with the client and I show them my pictures and let them know of my experience. 


If you have any questions about my experience with Kybella or would like me to blog about a particular subject, let me know! 


Here's to the "wonky" smile.  :)
