Do you worry about excess fat below your chin? The “double chin” is a common, yet under-treated, facial aesthetic condition. It is a trouble spot for many people as it is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. However, Dr. Balshi has a solution! Kybella® is an injection that dissolves fat below the chin. It is the first FDA approved, non surgical injection for fat removal in this area.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
