Swelling, bruising, redness and inflammation is to be expected up to 2 weeks after Kybella treatments.
Ice treated area for 3-5 minutes at a time for added comfort in the first 24 hours.
To allow for natural healing mechanisms to take place in the body, avoid NSAIDS or any type of oral or injectable anti-inflammatories. Ex. (ibuprofen, motrin, advil)
- Tylenol can be consumed as directed for added comfort.
- Avoid salty foods as this can increase swelling to the areas even more than what is to be expected.
NO exercise for 48 hours post treatment!
Elevate the head above the level of the heart with 1-2 pillows to assist with the decrease in swelling.
Use Arnica gel/cream, as directed, to reduce the appearance of a bruise. Bruising is normal and can be covered with make-up or concealer.
Remember to schedule your next appointment in 6-8 weeks. Kybella requires 2- 6 sessions for optimal results. We want you to have an outstanding result.
