Kybella For Men- Non-surgical Reduction Of Double Chin in Dallas and Southlake:
On April 29, 2015- KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals Announced FDA Approval of KYBELLA(TM) (also known as ATX-101) — First and Only Submental Contouring Injectable Drug.
KYBELLA(TM) (deoxycholic acid) Injection Significantly Improves Submental Fullness, or “Double Chin”
The news release is as follows:
“WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., April 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:KYTH) announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved KYBELLA™, also known as ATX-101, “for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults.” KYBELLA™ is the first and only approved non-surgical treatment for reduction of submental fullness, a common yet under-treated aesthetic condition.
KYBELLA™ is supported by a global clinical development program that includes over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA™.i In the pivotal Phase III studies, 68.2 percent of patients responded to KYBELLA™ based on a composite of validated physician and patient measurements.ii Patients treated with KYBELLA™ reported an improvement in the amount of fat in the area under the chin. Patients also reported improvement in the emotional impact of submental fat when asked how happy, bothered, self-conscious, embarrassed, old and overweight they felt following treatment in relation to the amount of their submental fat.
The most common adverse reactions were associated with the injection site and included swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, erythema and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area. The percentage of adverse reactions reported as mild were 81 percent, moderate 17.4 percent, and severe 1.6 percent.”
Interestingly, several years ago, I trained on a very popular European spot reduction treatment called “lipodissolve” and I successfully provided at least over a 100 treatments on various areas of the body for spot fat reduction with remarkable results and no long term or serious side effects. The most common side effects with this spot fat reduction injection was swelling, tenderness and itching which lasted 3-5 days. The lipodissolve treatment got a very bad reputation because of a large number of treatments provided by poorly trained non-medical staff with a sub-standard medication which led to a very high complication rate with more serious side effects than transient swelling and tenderness.
Kybella consists of one of the two ingredients in Lipodissolve, it has been studied extensively in over 1600 patients, it is very well controlled in its preparation and the Kybella treatment can only be provided by physicians who complete the Kybella certification, a brilliant idea in my humble opinion. I am rather proud to be one of the first Kybella certified Physicians in Dallas Forth Worth and have seen excellent results with this treatment for reduction of submental fat in the right candidates.
