The FDA’s recent approval of Kybella, the first injectable treatment to permanently diminish “double chin” fat, is now benefiting Oklahoma City residents at Mariposa MedSpa.
Around 70% of the population considers their chin and neck fat a “top concern,” according to a 2014 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, regarding cosmetic procedures.
“Fullness below the chin is one of the first signs of aging,” says Kristy Murrow, P.A.-C, managing partner and owner at Mariposa MedSpa. “It’s also one of the biggest insecurities people have about their face. Kybella reduces the fat and allows them to feel more attractive and confident. That’s why Mariposa MedSpa wants people to have access to the treatment in Oklahoma City.”
Kybella is the newest development in non-surgical fat reduction for double chins. It is identical to deoxycholic, an acid already made in the body. Deoxycholic acid supports the body’s absorption of fat. When Kybella is injected into the fat tissue below the chin, it permanently destroys the visible fat cells. The drug is injected once every 4-6 weeks for 2-4 treatments, with minimal downtime and mild discomfort.
Many people don’t understand the influence of genetics when it comes to fullness under the chin. If someone is more genetically inclined to have a double chin, their current weight, fitness level and age are insignificant. They can try to lower their body fat, but genes will often prevent them from successfully reducing the double chin. Kybella allows these people to destroy the fat in this area permanently.
Because Kybella is both FDA-approved and non-surgical, many patients in Oklahoma can feel comfortable knowing the treatment will be safe, effective and have minimal to no downtime. It is no longer a necessity to go under the knife to see permanent fat reduction below the chin – which is one of the areas patients dislike most about their appearance. Kybella is only approved for the double-chin area, and only a trained medical professional should administer it.
