Thank you for your question. You should always seek treatment from an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon who adheres to FDA guidelines for injecting Kybella. The grid is used to ensure that optimal treatment is given. Make sure that you follow up with your injector about your results and/or subsequent treatments.
I hope that this helps,
Thank you for your question Katherinexox. I understand your concern. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. Kybella comes with a grid used to mark the area. The dots on the skin help to guide the injector on the injection points, but they are not necessary.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Kybella and the Kybella Injection Grid
Kybella is a chemical that dissolves or disrupts fat cells. When injected, it disperses for about 1 cm in all directions from the injection site and so to get an even result, the grid or that is marked in 1 cm intervals, can be a great tool to help get even results. While most injectors will use it, it is not necessary to get great results and experienced injectors may elect not to use it for a variety of reasons.
The real question is "How are your result?" Hopefully your injector took before photos. If so, go back and ask for after photos to be done and to see the photos. That will tell you if you are making any progress. Usually each treatment gets about 40% improvement at a minimum.
I hope that helps.
The tattoo is a guideline for where to place the injections. Have you compared how you look now to your before photos? Because there should be a change. If not, then you may want to see another qualified injector to be assessed in person.
Tattoo and Kybella
I have never injected Kybella without a grid. In my hands, I like the temporary tattoo to help guide treatment. I do recommend that you seek an experienced injector. I think the injector's experience and comfort with Kybella are the most important.
