Several weeks ago, we blogged about Kybella, and our Nurse Practitioner Amanda Gallagher embarking on her own journey with this new, specialized injectable treatment. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable designed to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. We checked in with Amanda to see how her treatment went, what the process was, and the results she is seeing. (Stay tuned for up-to-date photos!)
Admin: When was your first treatment?
AG: My first treatment was 4 weeks ago [around May 3rd].
Admin: Can you please describe the treatment method?
AG: Photos were taken, the area was cleansed and prepped with a removable grid (which was painless). Next, there were several small injections placed in the fat pad under my chin. It took about 15 minutes and was very tolerable. The area got swollen and stung for about 10 minutes. I was able to go right back to work following the treatment.
Admin: How many treatments have you had so far?
AG: This was my first treatment thus far.
Admin: When do you plan to administer your next treatment?
AG: I will be receiving my next treatment at the six week mark.
Admin: What feelings have you noticed?
AG: My chin area was sore and a bit tender for about 10 days. (No one but me noticed the swelling.) The swelling was gone after a week.
Admin: Now the big question — What aesthetic changes have you noticed?
AG: What I notice now is a smaller, more contoured jawline. It is very exciting to see when I look into the mirror. I am very much looking forward to my next Kybella treatment!
