As we get older fat in certain parts of the body is very hard to get rid of.

A case in point is in the chin. And there are literally thousands of people who have spent years of enjoying a ‘good living’ lifestyle and which results in them having a double chin.

For those who suffer the embarrassment of a double chin, good news has just arrived.

All a dermatologist has to do is mark the area of the chin with the most amount of fat with connecting dots. Those dots are where ATX-101 is injected into.All a dermatologist has to do is mark the area of the chin with the most amount of fat with connecting dots.

You see, a new drug developed to remove double chins without surgery has just received unanimous recommendation for approval by a special advisory council for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The drug is called ATX-101 and it is expected to soon receive full approval by the FDA. It will most likely go public in 2015.

So the days of double-chin-cosmetic-surgeries will be a thing of the past. ATX-101 is a noninvasive and fast way of removing one’s double chin. Your double chin will be gone in just two days, thanks to this new and innovative drug.

ATX-101 quickly destroys the membrane of the fat cells below the double chin. This results in the fat cells bursting, destroying them forever.

The procedure to administer the drug is quick. All a dermatologist has to do is mark the area of the chin with the most amount of fat with connecting dots. Those dots are where ATX-101 is injected into.

Adam M. Rotunda, M.D., FACMS, a diplomate with the American Board of Dermatology, indicates that that the FDA should rule in favor of ATX-101 for market approval this May.

Rotunda indicates that the development of this new drug is welcoming news for dermatologists and patients alike.

“As dermatologists, we've been accustomed to addressing patient aesthetic concerns primarily from the chin up. However, the neck or submental region is critical in framing the lower half of the face and creating our profile. Changes in the neck as we age or gain weight can have profound effects on our self-esteem or self-perception,” says the Fellow with the American College of Mohs Surgery and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine and the University of California, Irvine.

He adds, “Many of my colleagues and I are very excited about this new potential new treatment. We've all been waiting for something new in injectables that's not a toxin or filler.”

Are there any side effects with ATX-101? The answer is yes: swelling, bruising and pain may occur in some people.

However, the good news is that people with a double chin will most likely endure some temporary pain to look better.

ATX-101 will not be covered by insurance companies. And the cost of the drug has not been made public as of yet.
