How is double chin injection different?

Or is it better than classic fat reduction techniques? Why does it only work on the chin region as opposed to the rest of the body?

As opposed to Coolsculpting, which freezes fat, double chin injection use a prescription only medication which kills the fat cells, setting off an immune reaction which leads to the immune system removing the fat from body. The injections will do the same to fat anywhere in the body, but the safety of the procedure has only been studied in the chin, so it is the only region approved by the FDA
