Will Kybella Help with Skin Laxity under the Chin?

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Kybella is FDA-approved for reduction of excess fat under the chin area. Based on my personal experience, it can also help tightening the skin to some degrees, so based on the amount of laxity under your chin, you might see some improvements, but please bear in mind that as the bulk of fat is reduced, you might see more the skin laxity. Overall if the skin laxity is significant, you might see better results combining Kybella with other treatments (radiofrequency or non-surgical fat reduction modalities). I hope it helps and good luck!
