Kybella - Great for unwanted chin fat


Deoxycholic acid, or Kybella, is used for submental fullness in the chin area also known as the "double chin". This is a common condition caused by aging, genetics and weight gain in both men and women. It is a difficult condition to get rid of and can make you look heavier and older than you actually are.

Deoxycholic acid is a natural molecule in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat. When injected into the chin, Kybella, destroys the fat cells and rids the area of them. This is a non-surgical treatment that is safe for improvement of fullness in the chin area. You may need anywhere from 1-6 treatments depending on how much improvement you desire.
