US approves new injection to dissolve chin fat!

Exciting news coming out of America for those with stubborn chin fat that just can’t be treated well enough non-surgically. Previously, if you didn’t want to go under the surgeons knife, and fillers and botox hadn’t worked, then you had no choice but to just live with it. That may now be over as a final option with the exciting news that Kybella has been licensed by the notoriously strigent FDA for use on chin fat (submental). Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid that is naturally produced in the body. Infact it is deoxycholic acid that helps the body to absorb fats. Kybella is a drug which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell and so when targeted at fat cells and injected by a fully trained and skilled practitioner kills them. However, injecting into the wrong place it has the potential to kill other cells or affect nerves. It isn’t availabel in the UK yet and most likely we have a while to wait but in this time we can assess its effectiveness in the states and look forward to adding it to the non surgical tools we have available if it lives up to the promise.
