The injectable treatment “melts away” small amounts of fat in the neck that create a “double chin” effect. The “Double Chin Eraser” is available to residents of the San Francisco Bay Area at PowerMD in Marin County.
“Kybella is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is produced in the body,” says Dr. Power. “Deoxycholic acid helps the body to absorb fats. Kybella is a ‘cytolytic’ drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into unwanted fat, the drug destroys the fat cells.”
“A double chin can make a woman or man look older and less attractive,” says Dr. Power. “However, many people don’t need or want surgery to reduce areas of fat under the chin. The Double Chin Eraser injectable treatment is effective for addressing small amounts of unwanted fat, and some patients may also benefit from a specialized laser treatment which can help to tighten the skin.”
