Kybella Aftercare: 4 Things To Keep in Mind

In the realm of aesthetic enhancements, one treatment has captured the fascination of many: Kybella. Known for its unique ability to redefine and sculpt the chin area without the need for invasive surgery, Kybella is a testament to the innovative spirit of modern cosmetic solutions. 

However, achieving optimal results extends beyond the treatment itself. An artful aftercare regimen is just as crucial, nurturing healing while preserving and enhancing the treatment's benefits. Understanding these aftercare practices can help you preserve the appearance-enhancing effects of Kybella.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a trailblazer in aesthetic medicine, offering a non-surgical solution to an age-old beauty concern: submental fullness or, as it's more commonly known, a double chin. Born from the natural molecule deoxycholic acid, Kybella mimics the body's own mechanisms for fat breakdown. Once injected, it works by destroying the fat cells in the target area, reducing their capacity to store or accumulate fat.

Our body naturally produces deoxycholic acid to support the digestion and absorption of dietary fat. In the case of Kybella, this acid is synthesized into an injectable treatment designed to eliminate fat cells. This unique approach provides an effective, non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures, with the added benefit of minimal downtime.

Kybella's magic lies in its precision. Each injection meticulously targets specific fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Over time, the disrupted fat cells are naturally processed and removed by the body's metabolic functions, resulting in a more contoured, sculpted chin profile.

The primary purpose of Kybella lies in its power to enhance the natural beauty of your facial structure. This helps accentuate the jawline, creating a more defined profile. This can dramatically enhance your self-confidence.

But what do you need to keep in mind when it comes to Kybella aftercare, and what should your priorities be in terms of skincare? We’re here to break it down for you.

1. Emphasize Hydration

After a Kybella treatment, it is essential to remember that your body is in a state of healing and regeneration. One of the best ways to support this process is by encouraging optimal hydration both internally and externally.

Internally, drinking enough water can support the body's natural detoxification systems, helping to remove disrupted fat cells post-Kybella treatment. It can also help maintain optimal bodily functions, encouraging swift and effective healing.

Our skin needs hydration to stay resilient and healthy, especially in the wake of a treatment like Kybella. Dehydrated skin may feel tight, look dull, and show signs of premature aging, which is why it's crucial to support your skin's hydration levels during the recovery period. 

This means using a good moisturizer (more on that in a moment) and avoiding potentially drying ingredients. Natural skincare can offer some useful alternatives to potentially harsh solutions like retinol.

Our Micellar Cleansing Essence, powered by our Splendore Anchusa® Complex, blends the ancient wisdom of nature with innovative science to tone and deeply nourish the skin. 

This nutrient-rich toner goes beyond the surface, working to support the skin’s pH and provide long-lasting radiance. Fortified with organic olive leaf water, wild organic Anchusa azurea, wild organic asparagus, and wild organic mallow, it also helps balance and support the skin barrier for protection during the day.

Follow this toning essence with our Face and Eye Serum, which features wild organic Anchusa azurea, wild organic beet, wild organic chicory, and organic olive oil to visibly lift and hydrate the skin. 

Finally, finish up with our Nightly Renewal Cream. Featuring our Circadian Rhythm Complex and Triple Enzyme Technology, this cream partners with your skin’s natural regenerative processes to reveal brighter, smoother-looking skin by morning.

2. Keep Skin Clean Yet Nourished

As your body navigates the healing process post-Kybella, maintaining clean skin is key. However, this doesn't mean resorting to harsh cleansers that can strip your skin of its natural oils. A gentle, nourishing cleanse can help keep your skin clean while also supporting hydration.

Our Cleansing Oil Balm is designed for this very purpose. Formulated with wild organic soapwort, olive squalene, organic olive leaf water, organic olive oil,  and fermented Sicilian manna, this dual-phase cleanser imparts deep nourishment while still cleansing your skin from debris and buildup.

Powered by our Triple Texture Technology and made from ingredients grown on our regenerative Sicilian farmlands, this cleansing balm doesn’t just cleanse — it leaves behind rich vitamins and minerals to support your skin from the inside out.

During the Kybella aftercare period, our Cleansing Oil Balm serves as a gentle yet potent solution, ensuring your skin remains clean, balanced, and enriched with essential nutrients as it heals. Use it morning and evening before serums, creams, oils, and treatments to support the healing process while maintaining radiant, nourished skin.

3. Support Skin's Recovery With Adequate Rest

Rest and recovery are interconnected, forming a crucial part of the healing process following a Kybella treatment. The art of relaxation is an essential aspect of skin recovery, encouraging healing while rejuvenating your overall well-being.

Sleep, in particular, plays a significant role in your body's ability to repair and regenerate. It's during these precious hours of slumber that our bodies undergo their most robust healing, recovery, and growth. Ensuring a good night's sleep is vital in supporting the healing process after Kybella.

To enhance your rest and create an optimal environment for skin recovery, consider integrating our Nightly Renewal Cream into your nighttime skincare routine. Crafted to sync with your skin's nocturnal functions, it harnesses the rejuvenating potential of the night to support the skin's repair and recovery process.

With our Nightly Renewal Cream, we've blended the reparative prowess of our exclusive Circadian Rhythm Complex with the soothing properties of organic oils and botanical extracts. These ingredients work together to support the skin's natural nighttime regeneration, helping your skin cope with everyday environmental stressors.

4. Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure

Post-Kybella treatment, your skin might be more sensitive to sunlight than usual. Therefore, it's important to limit your sun exposure as much as possible during the healing phase. Excessive sunlight could potentially slow down the healing process and contribute to skin irritation.

When going outside, use broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Wearing protective clothing, like wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses, can also provide additional protection. Your skin is in a delicate phase of recovery post-Kybella, and it's crucial to take all necessary steps to protect it from potential damage.

Illuminating the Path Ahead

Undergoing a Kybella treatment is an empowering step towards self-transformation. However, the journey doesn't end with the treatment. The aftercare phase is equally critical in achieving optimal results and maintaining your skin's health.

When looking for gentle yet nourishing aftercare products, look no further than the wildly potent skincare from Furtuna Skin. Made with hand-picked ingredients from our farm and infused with the hydrating power of rich, Sicilian olive oil, our products are here to nourish your skin through treatment and beyond.
