Woman during Kybella consultation in Miami Do you have some extra fullness below your chin that you’d like to reduce? An injectable treatment called Kybella® could be the perfect way to shape and slim your lower face. Here are four signs that you’re a good candidate for this popular fat-fighter.

1. You Have Good Skin Elasticity 

Take a moment to pinch the area right under your chin. Did your skin spring back into place when you let go? If so, that means you have good skin elasticity. It also means that your fullness is caused by the very same excess fat that Kybella was designed to treat! 

If your skin held its shape for a moment, you might be dealing with loose skin. That can complicate things. If you get rid of the excess fat in that area, your skin may sag even more. This is a situation where you might be able to achieve better results with a laser skin treatment.

2. You Want to Contour Your Lower Face 

Kybella works really well on small pockets of fat. It effortlessly eliminates them for a more contoured and defined lower face. Large pockets of fat, however, are another story. 

If you have a significant amount of fat beneath your chin, liposuction could be a better fit. Keep in mind that, when treating large pockets of fat, Kybella is not necessarily cheaper than liposuction, nor does it come with less downtime. Consider if you are open to surgery. 

3. Diet and Exercise Haven't Worked 

You don’t have to be overweight to have a double chin. Factors such as genetics and aging can also cause this stubborn condition. 

In these cases, diet and exercise may not be able to help. If you’ve tried everything to get rid of your double chin, it’s time to try Kybella.

4. You're Looking for Long-Lasting Results 

Facial exercises, high-tech massage tools, and fancy serums can only do so much. They won’t offer the significant or long-term benefits that you want. 

Kybella is different. It permanently removes treated fat cells. You shouldn’t need more treatments once you’ve achieved your desired results.
