Have you always looked in the mirror and seen that unsightly double chin? Or do you hide it with turtle necks and scarves? Well Kybella could be your answer, a new double-chin shot that promises to melt away that fan chin with a simple injection.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Florida dermatologist Dr. Susan Weinkle has been working with the double-chin shot since 2007 when it was called the ATX-101 during the medical trials. She claims that the double-chin cure has worked well for the 2,600 patients who received the injection.
“Options at the moment for submental fat [double chins] are [to] cut it out or suck it out,” says Blue Point Medical Spa Medical Director, Danka Michaels, MD. “However, this is going to be a noninvasive in-the-office procedure that produce excellent results.”
The double-chin shot takes about five minutes after ice is applied to the target area on the chin, and as many as 50 injections are done. Unfortunately, reducing the fat in the chin is not a one-time procedure, since it takes one treatment every four weeks for up to six months. Recovery time is about two or three days, and no bandages are required.
The FDA may have approved this double-chin cure, but they do admit there may be possible side effects.
So what exactly are Kybella’s side effects? The double-chin shot works because it is is similar to natural deoxycholic acid, which the body produces to help break down fat. Unfortunately, because deoxycholic acid can destroy any cell, the Kybella drug is approved only for use under the chin, since side effects include the risk of nerve injury and facial muscle weakness. Patient in the medical trial also reported bruising, pain, numbness, and swelling. The worst reported symptom was difficulty with swallowing, although it didn’t last long.
