The Average Cost of Kybella

You can also ask your Kybella specialist about other factors that can contribute to the overall costs of the procedure, as they are the only one capable of giving you a transparent answer.

The pricing of the Kybella treatment plan will vary for each patient, as each treatment is unique. Even so, most of the time, Kybella treatments should cost somewhere between $1,100 and $2,500 per treatment. The most important role in figuring the total cost is the number of treatments you’ll need. To cut down the costs, you can also use Coolsculpting as a first treatment so that the fat is debunked in the submental area.

Coolsculpting also results in less downtime, as it won’t cause the post-procedure swelling that Kybella will. The first and second treatment of Coolsculpting are also less expensive than those for Kybella. Coolsculpting can be followed by Kybella as soon as the results are shown, as a way of decreasing jowls and fine-tuning the areas.

Keep in mind that Kybella isn’t covered by insurance, as it is considered a cosmetic treatment and not a medical necessity. Even though you can’t count on insurance to help you financially, you should be able to find clinics that offer treatment plans involving multiple procedure, as a way of getting to the desired results while still being able to cover the costs. Most clinics will agree on a payment per treatment, meaning you won’t have to commit to more expensive packages in advance.

How Kybella Works

Kybella is formulated with synthetic deoxycholic acid, as an injectable treatment. It is a compound that is identical to whatever your gall bladder would produce daily. Your body will break down the deoxycholic as a way of absorbing the dietary fat. Kybella should be injected by board certified dermatologists, the treatment being done into the fat from your jowls and beneath the chin. This is a permanent way of reducing fat cells, which would leave your face slimmer with almost no discomfort.

It is recommended to go for around three to four treatments if you have a double-chin area, in intervals eight to ten weeks apart. Some clinics offer a combination of submental Coolsculpting treatments and Kybella treatments as a way of reducing the number of treatments to just 1 to 2 and cutting down the costs.

Kybella FAQs

Will I Need More Than One Kybella Injection?

Depending on how much submental fat you have around your jawline and underneath your chin, you might need more than one Kybella treatment. Most patients will need three or more Kybella injection before reaching their desired results, which means the total cost of the Kybella treatment will be $3,600 or more.

How Long Does Kybella Last?

Kybella results are made to be at least semi-permanent. This means that you shouldn’t see a return of the treated fat cells around your jawline as long as you don’t gain too much fat.

Getting a lot of exercise and going for a healthy diet will surely make the Kybella results last forever. You can also get maintenance injections periodically if you aren’t happy with the results. You shouldn’t need maintenance treatments more than every two to three years.

Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella?

You will be a great candidate for Kybella if the fat beneath your chin is noticeable. It is a treatment recommended for healthy people that can’t get rid of stubborn chin fat even with plenty of exercise. If your main objective is to lose weight, Kybella isn’t the treatment you should be looking for.
