How is it March already? And what’s up with all that rain? We Californians are strange – we complain when there’s no rain, and then we complain when there is rain! It’s been a welcome respite, but we’re sure you’re as ready for spring as we are! Luckily, we don’t have to wait long, spring will arrive on March 20, and we have a special event to usher in the sunshine!
March Special at Abbracci Med Spa: Kybella
But first, let’s talk about our March special – have you tried Kybella yet? We added it to our offerings in October, and since then, it has become one of our top selling injectable treatments.
Kybella is a non-surgical treatment for the pocket of fat that some of us have beneath the chin, otherwise known as a double-chin, and medically termed submental fullness. The clients that have undergone the treatment have experienced great results, usually within 2-3 sessions which are spaced about 6 weeks apart.
The best thing about Kybella is that it is permanent. The active ingredient in Kybella, synthetic deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that helps to break down & absorb dietary fat. When this medication is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it works to destroy the fat cells – and when those fat cells are gone, they are GONE. The result is a noticeable reduction in the fullness under the chin.
It should be noted that, at this time, it is not known if Kybella is safe to use outside the submental area but studies are in process.
Our aesthetician Stacy had her second Kybella treatment about 5 weeks ago, and here is a short video of her procedure. The dot grid you will notice is drawn on with a template prior to the injections to ensure correct application.
The most common side effects are temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness and areas of hardness around the injection site. All Kybella procedures are done by our medical directors, Dr. Abrishamian and Dr. Vournas after an initial client consultation. We are offering Kybella for $500 per vial (regularly $550) this month. Most clients use at least 2 vials during their procedure, and the doctors can make a better estimation of quantity needed during your consultation.
Kybella Information Seminar & Demonstration
Our Allergan representative will be here on Wednesday, March 22 from 4 – 8 pm to discuss the benefits of Kybella, side effects, talk about who is a candidate for this treatment, educate & answer questions, and consult with our clientele. We will also have a demonstration of Kybella being administered so you can see exactly what happens during the procedure.
There are only 15 spaces available for this event, and you must make a reservation! The reservation is $25 and can be used toward any service in the spa, including Kybella! We will also be serving appetizers & cocktails during this event. If you are interested and would like to know more about Kybella, please make your reservation SOON as we do expect this fill up quickly!
Even if you do not have excess fullness in the neck area, it is the one area that begins to show signs of aging. We take such good care of the skin on our face that we sometimes forget about using anti-aging products (including daily sunscreen!) on our neck & chest, but it is SO important to keep that area smooth & supple. iS Clinical just released its’ newest product, and we love it – NeckPerfect Complex transforms the neck, jawline and décolleté to appear more lifted, tightened and defined. The formula, which is comprised of botanicals & powerful antioxidants, gently exfoliates the skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, while improving the skin tone and texture. With continued used, the neck and décolleté appears visibly smoother, contoured and sculpted for a radiant, youthful looking complexion.
iS Clinical NeckPerfect Complex is now available in store for $70, and for this month only we are offering 10% off. This is a great opportunity to try this new product!
