What is Kybella?

For more people, the double chin is a difficult area to get rid of, even when losing weight. This double chin treatment – derived from deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body – is used to improve this moderate to severe submental fullness. Kybella is a great alternative to invasive procedures (such as liposuction). It is quick, non-invasive, and requires no downtime.

Why Kybella?

  • Improves double chins
  • Non-invasive
  • Quick, with no downtime
