After a long clinical trials study, FDA gave approval to Kybella, an injectable drug that causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Available NOW.
In the clinical studies, the reference name was ATX-101, so your research may show that term popping up. What is Kybella? It’s a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps metabolize dietary fat.
The lead clinical investigator, Dr. Derek H. Jones, clinical associate professor of dermatology at UCLA, explains how it works. “Basically, what it’s doing is disrupting the fat cell membrane. As soon as it hits, it causes lysis—or destroys the cell membrane. After that, the fat cell releases its fatty contents and the body metabolizes the fatty contents as normal.” Although Kybella is the first FDA-approved injection of its kind in this country, the concept has existed outside the U.S. for decades (and even within the U.S. but wasn’t FDA approved here). You may recall the term mesotherapy.
If you are over 18 and it has been medically determined that your submental fullness is actually fat and not something else, Kybella may be your answer.
