There is every reason to believe that Kybella® results will be permanent. The injections of deoxycholic acid destroy the fat cells by rupturing the cell membranes. The destroyed cells are naturally processed out of the body.
Once destroyed, the fat cells can no longer store fat. Therefore, researchers say Kybella® results will certainly be long-lasting, and possibly permanent. Because Kybella® has been on the market only since 2015, patients treated with Kybella® cannot yet say whether their injections will last a lifetime; however, researchers who participated in clinical trials for the drug have seen results lasting 4 years or longer. And with what we know about how Kybella® works and what it does, it is likely these patients will continue to enjoy their results in the decades ahead – without the need for a touch up!
After finding out if you are a good candidate, if you choose Kybella® for double chin reduction, you can rest assured you will continue to enjoy the results for many years ahead. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon is proud to be able to offer this exciting new treatment at his Northern Colorado practice.
