Other options may be more attractive for you.
Please use this information when consulting in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. They will be most capable of advising what is best for you.
This allows for careful placement and will give you time for your own natural tightening before you proceed with another treatment.
Larger amounts of Kybella will perhaps overwhelm your neck laxity so start small

Loose skin before Kybella
Thank you for your question Jule. I understand your concern. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. It would seem as though there would be loose skin left over if the fat in the double chin is eliminated. However we have found that this is not the case. There seems to be some tightening along with the fat removal. For those who have loose skin to begin with before Kybella treatments other treatments such as fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can be performed.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Kybella & Lax Skin
Based solely on your photo, the issue in your under chin/neck area seems to be one of loose skin. Kybella will not treat loose skin. The only solution for this is surgery. Hope this helps.

Kybella is an amazing way to get rid of submental fat. I often combine Kybella with Thermage for skin tightening to have the best results. Your photos appear that you may be a better candidate for a neck lift rather than Kybella injections. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
