Kybella FAQ'S


The cost of Kybella is determined by how many total treatments are needed to get desired results. Kybella typically requires a series of three treatments priced by the amount of solution used (i.e., per vial), and costs vary quite widely. Prices average about $400-$750 per vial, with the typical patient requiring at least two vials per treatment (or about $1,200 to $1,500 for each session).

Once the fat cells in the treatment area are gone, they are gone!!! Kybella permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down fat in the body. So with just a couple treatments of 15 minutes or less, you can rid your double chin for life! Makes the Kybella cost completely worth it.

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Fat cells are broken down each time Kybella is injected into the treatment area beneath the chin. Over a period of time, those cells are cleared away through the natural process of your body. You are left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

On average the typical client needs 3-6 treatments to completely remove the fat in the chin area and to achieve desired results. Clients receive multiple injections under the chin per treatment. Due to the swelling and numbness after each treatment, it is highly recommended to wait at least a month before the next treatment of Kybella.

You and your provider will determine the number of treatments you may need, based on the following:

+ How much fullness is beneath your chin

+ What your aesthetic goals are

+ Percentage of fat reduction you’re looking to lose

+ Budget

Kybella is identical to something your body makes called deoxycholic acid, which helps to absorb fats, the FDA says. It works by destroying fat cells. The injection is an alternative to liposuction or surgery to treat double-chin fat.

CoolSculpting and Kybella will yield similar results for removal or reduction of a double chin. Both Kybella and CoolSculpting will result in some inflammation after treatment and require a couple of sessions or treatments.

Kybella allows for a more customized treatment and only takes a couple minutes per treatment. CoolSculpting freezes the fat via vacuum suction and takes about 60 minutes per treatment.

CoolSculpting costs about $2000 per treatment while Kybella is typically $1500 or less per treatment.

The downtime after each procedure is virtually the same and as mentioned above, side effects are typically the same with a majority of patients experiencing swelling, bruising, and soreness.
