The men and women of Napa Valley have a new choice for the elimination of an unattractive ‘double chin’. Kybella is an innovative injectable, newly approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe and effective alternative to liposuction. Taking only minutes at the Allegro Medical Spa in Santa Rosa, Kybella dramatically sculpts the chin to restore a youthful appearance.
Submental fat, commonly referred to as a double chin, can be the result of weight changes or a laxity in facial tissues, but more of often than not, this excess fatty tissue is genetic. As people age, the fullness under the chin can become magnified, significantly overshadowing an overall attractive appearance. Since a double chin is not necessarily related to body type, diet and weight loss do very little to reduce this unattractive tissue. Fortunately, Allegro Medical Spa is bringing Kybella to Santa Rosa.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an innovative injectable designed to reduce moderate to severe submental fatty tissue. The first and only FDA approved, noninvasive product to restore a sculpted jawline, Kybella provides unprecedented results for erasing a double chin.
Injected directly into the excess, puffy fatty tissue below the jaw, Kybella immediately goes to work destroying the targeted fat cell’s outer walls. The cells are broken down; then naturally and safely absorbed by the body. After as few as two Kybella treatments, the chin will be noticeably more taut, smooth, and sculpted.
How Does Kybella Reduce Submental Fat?
Each Kybella session will take less than half an hour to perform in one of the treatment rooms at the Allegro MedSpa. Patients are back to their normal routine the same afternoon. While there may be some redness, mild bruising, and minor swelling after a Kybella treatment, these side effects will dissipate over the first week. Normal activities can be resumed immediately, without any restrictions on exercise or makeup.
Depending on the severity of submental fatty tissue, between three and six Kybella sessions, spaced four weeks a part, will be required for optimal results. During the appointment, up to 50 small injections will be placed in the targeted tissue. Although most patients find the Kybella treatment to be easily tolerable, a mild topical or local anesthetic can be used to increase the comfort level.
Kybella’s One-of-a-Kind Results at Allegro MedSpa:
The fat cells that are removed with Kybella treatment do not redevelop, making the dramatic results long-lasting. Once a series of Kybella injections is complete, no additional follow-up procedures are necessary.
Kybella from Allegro Medical Spa is considered a safe and effective procedure, with little chance for complications to occur. While issues such as infection, scarring, bleeding, and nerve damage can be seen, these are extremely rare. However, patients should protect themselves by carefully choosing an experienced, well-trained Kybella provider.
Allegro Medical Spa’s Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas are among the first cosmetic surgeons to offer patients the groundbreaking Kybella fat elimination procedure. Along with their renowned staff, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas are extensively trained in the science and application of Kybella.
