Both ThermiTight and Kybella are effective ways to remove submental fat. ThermiTight is designed to melt fat and also tighten skin by heating up the collagen with radiofrequency energy. The results are so dramatic that it can often be used as a nonsurgical necklift. Only one treatment is required.
Kybella works by melting dissolving fat with deoxycholic acid – a component of bile. It will eliminate up to 3025% of fat at a time, so most patients do best with at least two to three treatments or more. Because the fat leaves the body gradually over several weeks, the skin has time to adjust to the loss of volume and tends to tighten up. Please find a board-certified dermatologist who has expertise with both ThermiTight and Kybella so you can be evaluated in person to determine which is best for your needs.
Wanting Neck Fat Gone Permanently? Kybella Can Work Alone or In Combo
It looks like you may have a little bit of laxity to your submental skin. While Kybella will do a terrific job of removing the fat under your chin, and should also provide a little skin tightening, it may not be enough. Rather than ThermiTight, I would recommend a noninvasive skin-tightening treatment such as Thermage or Ultherapy. Consulting a board-certified dermatologist will give you a more specific answer, as your skin must be evaluated in person.
Which procedure? Kybella, Thermi or Coolsculpting
Although you would need an in-person evaluation to be certain, it looks like there is some loose skin under the chin. For this reason, I would select ThermiTight, which can treat both mild fatty excess and mild skin laxity. The other options only treat fat.
Thank you for your question. There are a couple of options that you have but it is always best to visit a board certified doctor for best advice. You may be a candidate for both- depending on your desired results of course. Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells in your chin. Should skin tightening be needed, you may do that as well. Hope this helps. Best, Dr. Ka
Thermi tight or kybella
It is a little difficult to tell from your pictures; therefore a consultation with a MD who offers both treatments would be best. Thermi tight is better for fat and skin tightening of the neck and jaw line; my first impression is that this would be the better procedure for you!
