Typical Recovery Time
Sunset’s Kybella® treatments are administered by double board-certified surgeons. The injectable is administered directly into the fat under the chin and is tailored to individual treatment goals. Down time following a treatment is minimal. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and can be performed right in our office, allowing patients to get back to work or resume their daily activities immediately.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Once the desired results are achieved after two, four, or six treatment sessions, retreatment is not expected.
What Are the Side Effects and Risks?
Unwanted side effects are rare, but may include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and/or areas of hardness in the treatment area. Though these tend to resolve on their own, contact us immediately if you experience any of these side effects.
