Treatment for Double Chin
Deoxycholic acid is an artificial molecule naturally present in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

These injections are primarily based on Deoxycholic acid. It is the most popular treatment for double chin reduction due to its noninvasive nature.
