There really is no best age. Younger patients may have better skin elasticity and therefore better shrinkage of the skin, but anyone with excess fat in the submental area can benefit from Kybella. Older patients who would not typically be a candidate for fat removing procedures such as liposuction have still benefited from Kybella. I would recommend speaking with a board certified plastic surgeon to see if you are a good candidate.

Best age for Kybella?
How old should you be do have a Kybella treatment?
There is really no age restriction for Kybella. Candidacy for treatment is a more appropriate concern. Your physician can determine your candidacy by performing a physical assessment of the area in a consult.
Kybella is good for people of all ages.
Thank you for your question. There is no age restriction for Kybella. As long as the patient is 18 years or older and if they are younger, they must get signed consent. Candidates for Kybella should have enough submental fullness, which is determined by your doctor. Best of luck!

The most important issue then becomes patient selection. Patients who have excess fat and good skin quality in their neck tend to benefit the most from Kybella.
