Kythera on track to treat under-chin fat soon

Kythera is trying to make some scientific sense of the injectable lipolysis market, specifically for submental (under the chin, or neck) fat. Based upon this press release they are making some headway with their new pharmaceutical.

Dr. Goldberg pointed out that studies in the U.S. have only looked at lipomas (benign tissues composed of fatty tissue) thus far, but will soon evaluate neck fat.

We applaud the way they are approaching this in a scientific, controlled manner and eagerly await further results. As the press release notes, in a random evaluation of 220 Botox and filler patients, 73% had excessive submental fat.

Thanks for reading,
