Kybella, which is manfactured by Allergan–the makers of Botox and Juvederm–is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.”
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Kybella is one of the top methods to successfully get rid of submental fat (fat around the chin area), largely in part because it is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that offers real results.
Dissolving ones double chin has been a hot topic and procedure of interest for years.
The idea of injecting and dissolving fat–which was originally known as mesotherapy–dates back to 1950’s France.
The origins of chemical fat-dissolving (a.k.a. mesotherapy) go back to France in the 1950’s.
According to Allergan’s executive director of medical affairs, Conor Gallagher, European scientists began using a compound called phosphatidylcholine to break up fat for medical reasons in the 1960’s.
Obviously, we’ve come a long way since then. Patients can now enjoy and safe and proven method that will get rid of their double chins without having to under the knife.
