Will Kybella work if get third treatment early?
Taking 4-6 weeks between Kybella treatments is simple a general recommendation, not a hard and fast rule. Since you don't seem to be experiencing any long term swelling, I don't think you should have any problem getting your third treatment early. Thrilled to hear that you are so happy with your results.
Kybella can be repeated after 3 weeks
Kybella at three week intervals
Thank you for your question Tirajwilson. Kybella is a great treatment to improve the double chin and many patients love their results. In the pivotal studies treatments were done every four weeks. This allows the area to heal completely before the next treatment. Now we are waiting six to eight weeks between treatments to allow for even more healing. The safety of treatments at three week intervals has not been studied so we don't know the answer to whether treatments at three week intervals would be okay. With my patients we wait at least six weeks between treatments. If there is a scheduling conflict waiting longer should not be an issue, it would just take longer to see the final results. Please speak with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Early interval treatment with Kybella?
So the safest course would be to wait and follow the recommendations of the FDA which they arrived at based on the approval study. Kybella is new and most physicians do not have a long experience with it. "Off label" use of a product is not wrong when in the physician's judgement and experience it is ok for the patient and the patient is informed. It really depends on the judgement and experience of your physician. But I would probably wait and follow the recommendations of the FDA at this time, until more experience is gained with Kybella and earlier injection intervals.
Stick with the plan

Kybella is fabulous!
So happy to hear that you are loving your Kybella. As long as you feel the swelling has gone down, and your provider feels the same then there is no reason to stop you from receiving your third Kybella treatment.
Enjoy your travels!
