Kybella® May Be Your Solution For That Stubborn Double Chin

Kybella® is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment designed to target and reduce submental fat, commonly known as a "double chin." It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the area beneath the chin, Kybella disrupts fat cells, causing them to break down and be gradually eliminated by the body's natural metabolic processes. Over time, this results in a more sculpted and defined jawline, enhancing the overall appearance of the face. Dr. Bolitho's skillful administration ensures precise placement and effective results, contributing to a more confident and youthful look.

  • Incorporate regular exercise into your routine
  • Avoid significant weight fluctuations
  • Practice good skincare and sun protection to maintain skin elasticity
