Since each Kybella treatment plan is unique, pricing varies from patient to patient. On average, however, Kybella treatments cost anywhere between $1000 and $2,400 per treatment. The number of treatments you’ll need will play a vital role in the total cost. In some cases we may recommend using Coolsculpting first to debulk the fat in the submental area. Coolsculpting does not cause the post procedure swelling of Kybella so results in less downtime. It may also be less expensive for the first and second treatment. Coolsculpting treatment can be followed by Kybella after results are realized to fine tune the area and to decrease jowls.
It’s essential to understand that since Kybella is a cosmetic treatment, rather than a medical necessity, your insurance will not cover it. The good news is that we can discuss a treatment plan that involves multiple procedures to achieve your desired results over time. Payment is per treatment and you do not have to commit to an expensive package in advance. You can learn about the price of your Kybella treatment in a consultation at our office.
How Kybella Works
Kybella is an injectable treatment formulated with a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is identical to what your gall bladder produces every day. Deoxycholic acid breaks down and helps the body absorb dietary fat. Our board certified dermatologists inject Kybella into the fat beneath your chin, and in your jowls, to permanently reduce fat cells, leaving you with a slimmer face all with minimal discomfort. For the double-chin areas, we suggest receiving three to four treatments spaced eight to twelve weeks apart. Alternatively we often treat patients with 1-2 submental Coolsculpting treatments followed by 1-2 Kybella treatments. To reduce jowls only 1-2 treatments are generally necessary.
