A patient asked 3 years ago
I’m 40 and have noticed a much more pronounced double chin in the last five years. I also now have sleep apnea but am in good shape not at all overweight. I have had kybella ttreatments of two vials twice and noticed slight improvements the last time should I continue these treatments or be considering other options? I enjoy the overall aesthetics of my face but am now uncomfortable with this area and often put my hand on my chin in photos. I also feel like with my braces my lower jaw was pushed back.

Hi and thank you for your question! It is not uncommon to see patients requiring more than 4 vials and/or 2 treatment sessions to see optimal results with Kybella, so if you have see improvements so far, you might want to continue the course of treatment with Kybella. Combining other treatment modalities such as radiofrequency might also help further improving the results. I hope it helps and good luck!
