Kybella Pre and Post Care Instructions
Kybella Pre-Care Instructions:
Inform your It’s A Secret Service Professional if you are on blood thinners or have had procedures or surgery of your lower face or neck.
Plan your procedure so that you can have 4 full days before returning to work or important social engagements. Full swelling can take up to a 3 weeks to completely resolve.
Ibuprofen can be taken following the procedure for swelling and discomfort.
Zyrtec (an antihistamine) can be taken for discomfort and itching that may result from the procedure.
You can begin icing the area 15 minutes before the procedure to reduce itching, inflammation and pain associated with Kybella.
Kybella Post-Care Instructions:
After your treatment, you should expect swelling and redness. You may also experience bruising, pain, numbness, and/or induration to the treated area. This will normally last less than 5 days, and for some patients may last up to 14 days. If the symptoms continue beyond 10 days or if other reactions occur, please contact the office.
You may elect to ice the area post-treatment. Apply the ice pack alternating 20minutes on/30 minutes off for up to 72 hours post treatment. Please remember that due to associated sensation impairment, icing too vigorously can cause frostbite and scarring.
Do not participate in strenuous activity for 3 days following treatment. Sleeping upright will reduce swelling.
Do not scratch, pick or traumatize the area in any way. Do not massage or manipulate the injection site.
You may wash your face the following morning using the products recommended by your It’s A Secret Service Professional.
Please discuss continuing use of your regular regimen post-treatment.
Call the office if you have any difficulty swallowing, speaking, crusting or scabbing in the treatment areas, asymmetry of your smile or any other unusual symptoms.
