Kybella Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Kybella Procedure Technique
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.
"I visited the novato location and she was amazing. I had lip and under the eye injections. No bruising and perfect"- D.K. / Yelp / May 25, 2019
"My experience at Allegro MedSpa was wonderful! Kelsey performed my procedures that day and I could not have felt more reassured that I was making the right choices to meet my specific needs and desires. Her experience quelled any anxiety that crept up. I had complete peace trusting her suggestions and advice for not only treatment now but beneficial procedures in the future.😀Kelsey was patient, engaged, generous and made me feel like I was the most important person in her life for the time I was with her! I will absolutely be asking for Kelsey again in the future!"- J.D. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"I was at Allegro for some voluma in my cheeks. Kelsey was great about discussing what I wanted and suggested additional juvederm for some areas that have been bothering me. I told her I bruise easily and she kept icing my face after each area was injected. I’ve never had anyone take such care to try to reduce bruising. My appointment was yesterday and yes I have bruising, but I can’t imagine how much worse I would look if Kelsey hadn’t taken such time and care with me. I can’t wait to see how great I look once this bruising goes away!Thank you Kelsey!"- S.K. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"First let me say, absolutely amazing staff! I have been here twice, first time for a skin consultation and skin care routine. Came away with a skin care program that suited my needs as well as a friendly consultation that made me feel so comfortable. (I don't often go anywhere with out my make up on, but everyone made me feel "normal" and beautiful and accepted for me) My second time I visited the MedSpa, (along with my Aunt) I met with Kelsey! And let me say...loud and absolutely clear!.....She is truly awesome! Kind....gentle...down to Earth.....professional and very informative! This was my first time looking into any type of "refresher".....and so naturally I had some anxiety about what I should and shouldn't do. Kelsey, was sooooo patient and kind and helped me (and my Aunt) with my/our decisions...as well as what was appropriate for me and my needs. SO thankful for her advice and wisdom! Absolute hands down....I had such a wonderful experience! Thank you Allegro MedSpa!....Oh!..and the lovely girls at the desk?...All smiles and treated me like family. You guys made my nerves turn into excitement and joy! I will definitely be back again. Looking forward to it!"- S.J. / Google / Feb 13, 2020

Reduce Neck Fat Today
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 with Kybella®
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 much does Kybella cost?
Kybella treatment costs will depend on how many appointments you need. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be made to match your goals. A member of our staff can also review payment options with you during your consultation.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, works to break down fat cells in the upper neck. After they are destroyed, these cells will not grow back. Therefore, additional treatments should not be necessary once you have met your goal.
Can Kybella be used to treat other areas of the body?
Currently, Kybella may only be used to treat the upper neck. Kybella has been proven to effectively reduce the fat in the upper neck that creates the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on any other areas of the body.
Am I eligible for a Kybella treatment?
There are a few factors that could make you ineligible to receive a Kybella treatment. You must be over the age of 18 years old, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and cannot have any infection at the treatment site. Prior to the process begins, you should share any health concerns and your medical history with your injector so they can decide if you can safely receive the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
At your consultation, a customized injection plan will be created to meet your cosmetic goals. Usually, patients receive between 2 – 4 Kybella treatments before achieving their goals. Kybella appointments must also be spaced about one month apart. You should not receive more than six treatments.
