What Is Kybella?
This is a type of dermal shot that is approved by the FDA. It specifically targets the excess fat around the chin area and removes it without surgery or other types of painful procedures. It works by attacking excess fat. It does this by mimicking deoxycholic acid which is a natural process done by the body to absorb fat.
This injectable works by absorbing the excess fat in the chin area, thereby eliminating a double chin over time. It is non-surgical and requires no downtime. Unlike facelifts and other procedures, this type of treatment is not painful and is totally safe!
