Even a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area will cause the appearance of a double chin that may be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) may be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa is happy to offer a new technique to reduce neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical option for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid that acts as the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it has been injected beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate so you are able to enjoy your new slender profile and defined jawline for years to come. Contact our Santa Rosa, CA facility to learn more and to schedule your consultation.
The best patients for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects stubborn areas of fat that cannot be removed with common weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the right option for your goals. While Kybella can be used to remove small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, significant amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.
"The best Med Spa! I am so glad I've become a customer! The staff is welcoming and every time I leave my skin feels amazing and camera ready! I can't recommend enough!"- T.W. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2019
"I went in to have lip fillers done by Jodie (who I HIGHLY recommend).. She listened to all my concerns and provided me with so much information not only on recommendations for treatment but educated me on the anatomy of my mouth to better understand my options. The results exceeded my expectations and still managed to turn out looking so natural and completely matches my face without looking over done! I couldn’t be happier! 10/10 !!"- S. / Google / Feb 04, 2019
"By far the best Med Spa in Nor Cal. I went here for my first time receiving any fillers. The staff was extremely professional. From check in, to consult, to the procedure itself, I couldn't be more pleased. Jodi explained everything to me in great detail and was all around amazing. I will definitely be back. My results were perfect!!!!"- R.M. / Yelp / Jan 16, 2019
"From walking in the door, and being greeted by friendly staff, Danielle and Wendy (I think), to my treatment, my overall experience at the spa was amazing. I had an IPL laser treatment done with Jodi. I was a little nervous about the treatment and how much pain I might experience. Jodi was professional, explained each step of the process, answered all my (many) questions and even gave me a stress-ball to squeeze. It was a great experience and I've already seen great results from just the first treatment. I am looking forward to my next treatment."- J.F. / Google / Jan 04, 2019
"I absolutely love coming here. All my wants are fulfilled and greatly accomidated. The girls here are great! Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a spectrum of enhancements."- R.J. / Google / Jan 04, 2019
Kybella is done during an in-office appointment. We may apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, after the skin is clean. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes a few small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may require one treatment to get to their desired look while others may want a few treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa.
What to Expect
Injections of Kybella do not require anesthesia so you are allowed to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your daily activities. You may notice temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling below your chin, although this should not last longer than a couple of days. Contact Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa immediately if you are noticing any unusual side effects, including facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the cells left over can grow larger so you need to maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and slimmer, and your profile will be more defined.

How does Kybella work?
