Do you have questions about a Kybella treatment? Would you like to know what the cost of Kybella is?


If that’s the case, you’re in the right place. The cost of Kybella will be dependent on the treatment amount, however, there are other important factors in play too.


In this article, we cover all you need to know about Kybella and its cost.


What Is the Kybella Technique?


Kybella is a non-invasive injectable solution, which is used to target fat beneath the chin area. The technique employs a number of deoxycholic acid injections to attack these fat cells.


Incisions are not needed, and we bring downtime down to a bare minimum. Any person who is 18 years of age or older can have the treatment, so long as they have severe fat below the chin.


If you ever planned on getting facial surgery, are pregnant or nursing, have trouble swallowing, or have a medical condition in the designated area – the procedure is not for you.

How Does the Procedure Work?


In premise, deoxycholic acid is a naturally produced bile chemical that is used to absorb fat. Kybella uses a synthesized form of this acid, thus leading to the destruction of fat cells in that area, which means it won’t be able to store fat any longer.


It’s important that a certified specialist makes your injections because the acid is capable of killing other cells in the process if done incorrectly. Before the procedure itself, your health provider will place a mark on the injection location with a marker and might provide a numbing agent to ease the pain or discomfort.


After injection, the acid will gradually kill the cells, and then they will be metabolized by the body over the course of weeks.


The number of treatments will vary for each person. As a result, you may need multiple sessions for optimal results.


What Is the Cost Of Kybella?


The cost of Kybella on average is anywhere from $600 to $2000. However, the total cost will be variable, based on the number of treatment sessions, health provider fees, geographic location, the volume of fat, etc.


The treatment itself is an elective cosmetic procedure, which means that insurance companies will not be covering it. However, you can still finance the procedure.


First, your provider might have financing opportunities. Second, there are financial institutes that provide credit cards and medical loans for such purposes. Talk to your provider and find out!
