Discover BraBella: Kybella on the Bra Line

BraBella: Kybella on the Bra RollsLadies: let’s be honest. We all have that insanely bothersome “bulge” next to the armpits. There have been several nicknames for this extremely undesirable, but very common, condition: The Pit Pooch, Armpit Fat, Bra Bulge,  Bra rolls, Armpit Vagina, the list goes on and on. Even celebrities are suffering! It’s time we put an end to this era and stop suffering in silence. Say goodbye to that unwanted bra bulge!What is BraBella?Say hello to your new best friend at Beleza: BraBella. BraBella is the newest procedure to hit the pits and we’re blown away by the results. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a FDA approved injectable that kills and destroys fat cells under the chin. While it is only FDA approved under the chin, practices around the country are performing “off-label” Kybella procedures and seeing amazing results. When Kybella is injected into the bra line to dissolve the unwanted bra bulge, we now have what the kids on the streets are calling “BraBella.”BraBella CostUnlike most injectables, Kybella is sold by the vial. One vial of Kybella retails for $600. While consultations are required for all Kybella or BraBella procedures, we have found most patients require at least 2 vials for their first treatment of BraBella. Some patients only need one treatment, but others may need 2-3 additional treatments. It all depends on the amount of submental fat in the area.BraBella DowntimeOf course, with most every procedure, there is some downtime. With a full treatment of BraBella, it takes at least 4-6 weeks for the product to dissolve the submental fat. Patients typically require 2-3 treatments, roughly 6-12 weeks apart, so it can take some time to see a result. Tenderness and swelling will occur immediately after the procedure and can last for as least 1-2 weeks post-procedure.Over the weeks to follow, that unwanted fat pocket will disappear gradually. The swelling can definitely be bothersome to most everyone, so it is best to plan out your BraBella treatment when you can hide under sweaters and jackets (and not right before a trip where you will be in a bikini or tank top!)Am I Candidate for BraBella?Most likely, YES! Book your consultation today to find out if you’re a candidate. This is an amazing noninvasive option for those who do not want to go under the knife to zap that unwanted bra bulge. Not to mention you will be in and out in 30 minutes or less!As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly.

Admit it. It’s bothered you for years. Having a double chin is a bummer. It literally ruins a photograph at the drop of a hat, particularly those coveted selfies. Let me guess – you’re dying to get rid of it, but an invasive, expensive surgical procedure isn’t exactly what you are looking for, am I right? Well, your prayers have been answered, my friend. I am here to tell you it’s time to get serious about zapping your double chin without surgery (unless you’re dying to hide under turtle-necks again this year!)Discover Kybella: a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the double chin.Kybella is an FDA approved injectable drug designed specifically for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fat (double chin). In an approximately 15-20 minute procedure, a series of small injections are made into the double chin fat. Kybella consists of a naturally occurring compound, deoxycholic acid, which is manufactured by the body to help digest fat. When injected into fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once the cells are destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After 2-3 treatment sessions (spaced at least 30 days apart), visible reduction of submental fat can be noticed. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not expected, but can vary for each patient.As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly.
