Thank you for your question jiv111. I understand your concern. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. It is difficult to make an assessment with only a single photograph of a portion of the face. However if I had a patients who looks like the person in this photograph I would say she is a good candidate for Kybella. A series of 2-4 treatments is required, sometimes up to 6 treatments. I space treatments every 3 months. Results are seen slowly over time. Patience is important. To determine if someone is a candidate for Botox to contour the lower face it is necessary to see and feel the lower jaw when the patient bites down. Also being able to look at the mid-face would allow me to determine if restoring volume there with products such as Voluma would be able to pull up on the lower face and provide an enhanced appearance.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Kybella is going to be the right choice for the pocket of fat under your chin. Price is going to depend on the amount of fat which determines how many vials you will need. It also takes between 2 and 4 treatments however, the results are permanent.
Botox and Kybella
Kybella would address the double chin in the submental region. Botox would help with the Masseter muscle in the cheek region to help slim and narrow the face.Typically I recommend about 15 units in each masseter and I would use two vials of Kybella to the submental region.

Patients with enlarged mastoid muscles may benefit from Botox injections to flatten the angles of the jaw.

Kybella v. Botox Cosmetic
Kybella is effective for reducing submental fullness, aka double chin. Botox will not help that particular problem.
To be sure what is best for you, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.

Double Chin and Best Treatment Kybella or Cool-mini NYC
From your photo it appears that your main area of complaint is the fat under the chin. I would recommend either Kybella or the Cool-mini. Both treatments would work well for you. Botox would not really address the fat under the chin. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
