Our liquid lipo procedure is a non-surgical injectable treatment designed to reduce moderate to
severe fat in certain areas such as beneath the chin to reduce the appearance of a “double
chin.” The active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the
body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the targeted
areas, it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or
accumulate fat. The treatment involves a series of sessions, customized to each individual’s

- Inform your healthcare provider: Provide your healthcare provider with a comprehensive medical history, including any medications, supplements, or herbal remedies you are currently taking. This information will help ensure your safety and determine any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
- Avoid blood-thinning medications: Prior to the procedure, it is advisable to avoid bloodthinning medications (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for at least one week. These medications can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising during the procedure. However, always consult with your healthcare provider before making any changes to your medication regimen.
- Stop smoking: If you are a smoker, it is recommended to stop smoking at least two weeks before the Kybella treatment. Smoking can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications.
- Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Refrain from consuming alcohol and caffeine for at least 24
hours prior to the procedure, as they can contribute to dehydration and increase the risk of complications.
- Hydration: Ensure you are properly hydrated by drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your Kybella treatment. Hydrated skin tends to respond better to the procedure.
- Plan for downtime: Kybella injections may cause swelling, bruising, and discomfort after the procedure. Plan your schedule accordingly, allowing for a few days of potential downtime or limited social activities while your body heals.
- Arrive with clean skin: On the day of the procedure, ensure your skin is clean and free of any makeup, lotions, or creams. This allows for a sterile environment and opt
- Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, develop a cold sore, blemish, or rash in the area to be treated.

After the procedure, you may notice:
- Swelling, bruising, and tenderness. To manage these symptoms, you can apply a cold compress, take over-the-counter pain relievers, or follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
- Ice the treated area: Apply a cold compress or ice pack wrapped in a clean cloth to the treated area for about 10-15 minutes at a time. This can help reduce swelling and discomfort.
- Keep the area clean: Gently cleanse the treated area with a mild cleanser and water, then pat it dry with a clean towel. Avoid using harsh or abrasive products on the treated area for a few days.
- Be patient with results: It may take several weeks or even months to see the full effects of the treatment as the body naturally eliminates the targeted fat cells.
- For best results 3-6 sessions are recommended 6-8 weeks apart.
- Avoid touching or rubbing the treated area: Refrain from touching, rubbing, or applying pressure to the treated area for at least a few days after the injections. This helps to prevent infection and allows the medication to work effectively.
- Avoid excessive heat and sun exposure: Stay away from excessive heat, such as saunas, hot showers, or steam rooms, for at least 48 hours after the treatment. Also, protect the treated area from direct sunlight by wearing a wide-brimmed hat or using sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
How to maintain your treatment:
- The treatment destroys fat cells permanently, but weight gain may cause fat cells to grow in undesired areas. For maintenance, regular diet and exercise is recommended.
