Is your double chin making you feel insecure? If it is, and you would like to reduce it but don’t want to undergo surgery, Kybella may be a good alternative for you. But how does Kybella work, and how much does it cost.
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for reducing moderate-to-severe submental fullness i.e. fat below the chin. Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. It is a naturally occurring acid in the body that helps with the absorption of dietary fat.
How Kybella works
When Kybella is injected into the submental fat below the chin, the deoxycholic acid quickly dissolves the membrane of the fat cells, and the cells are then destroyed. The dead fat cells are eliminated by the body over the following weeks.
How much does Kybella cost
A single Kybella treatment costs $1,200 to $1,800 on average. A course of 2-6 treatments is typically recommended, but many patients see optimal results after 3 sessions.
What factors affect the cost of Kybella?
The number of vials needed and the price per unit, are the main factors that will affect the cost of Kybella. The cost of one vial of Kybella is approximately $300, and the number of vials required will depend on the volume of fat being targeted.
The level of experience of the provider will also impact the cost of Kybella, because providers with significant experience generally charge more. The geographic location of the practice is another factor that can influence the cost, as Kybella is usually more expensive in large urban centers with higher overheads.
