Kybella™ Treatments for "Double Chin"

The clinical experts of Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery at Mercy can help patients reduce the fullness of their chin profile through non-surgical Kybella treatments.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to temporarily reduce the appearance of submental fullness, also known as “double chin.”

Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, a molecule which is naturally developed by the body. Deoxycholic acid advances the breakdown of fat cells. When injected into the submental region (area below the chin), Kybella minimizes fat cells and reduces fullness.
