Kybella
Finally a non-surgical permanent fix for that double chin! In just two to four treatments (depending upon severity) the chin contour to the neck is restored to the near 90 degree angle. Kybella (FDA approved earlier this year) is a synthetic deoxycholic acid formulation. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that is a byproduct of intestinal bacteria, and is one of the mechanisms the body uses to break down dietary fat.
Kybella is injected into the fat pad under the chin. There is a brief period of swelling but after a few weeks, the results are becoming visible. Retreatment occurs in 4 to 6 weeks after the first treatment and the swelling is considerably less with subsequent treatment.

On average women will require two treatments and men three to four.
As the fat is destroyed by the deoxycholic acid some inflammation is produced. This inflammation in turn causes a bit of skin tightening, most likely through some fibrosis. Because the fat cells are actually destroyed, the fat does not reappear, even if one gains weight. Therefore, results are permanent and all without surgery! Kybella also won the “2015 Breakthrough Award” from Allure magazine!
