Kybella Post-Care

Please follow these instructions after your Kybella treatment. If you have any questions, please call our office at 610-518-7546.

  • Massage the treated area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days. A good way to remember this is to massage:
    • as soon as you wake up
    • at breakfast
    • at lunch
    • at dinner
    • before bed
  • The massage should be of medium pressure and should not cause any intense pain in any way. There should be no pinching of the skin.
  • Arnica gel can be used starting 6-8 hours after your procedure to help your body heal the bruising and swelling. It is a good base to use for the massage.
  • It is normal to experience the following symptoms, which can last from several hours to fourteen (14) days, depending on the area treated and medications used:
    • bruising
    • redness
    • itching
    • soreness
    • significant swelling
    • nausea
  • Claritin can be used to help with itching if needed.
  • Drink at least 64oz of water daily, preferably more, the day of treatment. Continue for one (1) week after treatment.
  • Do not wash or take a shower for at least four (4) hours after your treatment.
  • Do not use any lotions, creams or make-up on the treated area for 6-8 hours after your treatment.
  • Do not take any supplements until 48 hours after your procedure.
  • Avoid exercise for 48 hours – exercising causes you to sweat, which will decrease the effect of the solutions that have been injected into your tissue.
