Developing a double chin may occur at any point in someone’s life. It may be a result of genetics, gaining weight, or degrading skin elasticity in the neck and chin area. A double chin can be an embarrassing look for anyone, especially if you care a lot about your appearance.

Traditionally, a double chin is treated surgically through neck lifts and liposuction. Those procedures, however, can be costly and require longer recovery times. Now, with the Kybella treatment, double chins can be erased with a properly administered injection. The treatment can help countless men and women who are struggling with embarrassing double chin problems.

The treatment is perfect for those who feel self-conscious about their looks and want to achieve a more toned facial profile with exceptional contours.

What Is the Kybella Treatment?
