Thank you for your question. The manufacuters of Kybella sell the product to the providers by the vial. Some practices will sell the product by the vial. Others will charge by the treatment and may have different prices depending on the number of vials required for each treatment. Regardless of the differing practices of pricing, I would recommend that you go to an experienced provider who can discuss a variety of options/alternatives such as the Coolsculpting Mini, Profound SubQ, or even surgery. Also, there is a range of skill levels for Kybella injections (much like other Injectables) so it is important that visit with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist who has an understanding of the underlying anatomy and experience in treating the double chin region.
Thank you for
your question mizubi. I understand your concern. Kybella is the first and
thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double
chin. Pricing structure varies from office to office. In our office we perform at least two treatments each with 2 vials. It is important to be financially prepared for at least this investment. Depending on the person more treatments can be performed.
consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
I would suggest that you go with the injector with the most experience. I completely agree that cost must be a consideration, but I find that skill always brings down cost. Also, since Kybella is a permanent solution, it is a one time cost. Hope this helps.
When choosing a physician to inject your face it is most important to find one based on their experience and qualifications. Kybella is a permanent injection and during your consultation you will find out the exact cost. An average area will require two vials and if your have a larger treatment area you may require more. Best, Dr. Green
We tell our patients, if you can't do 3 sessions, don't bother doing 1. Best results are seen following three treatments in our practice. Women generally need 2 vials per session or 6 total, if you complete the recommended 3 visits. Our charges reflect the amount of Kybella used. We recommend that patients don't 'lowball' their face to the lowest cost clinic, as you're more likely to have problems or issues with volume based clinics. Find a reputable doctor with a good reputation, even if it costs a little more. Best,
This is a very common question. I personally charge by treatment. The volume of each vial is not significant, it is just the way that the company packaged it. I think sometimes patients are attracted to advertisements which show a very low price per vial, but they don't realize that they will need several vials and it will actually be the same price (or even more) than just getting a "treatment session". Kybella should be thought of as a procedure and not a treatment like Botox. The point of the procedure is to treat to correction the appearance of submental fullness. In my opinion, the amount of product used is not as important as the skill and knowledge of the person doing the injection. Best of luck!
As Kybella costs are based on quantity, it is tough to say what a patient would require without seeing them. Pricing varies from clinic to clinic as the manufacturer, Allergan, does not set the prices for individual practices. Often, clinics will have their own bundling models. If price is a priority for you in selecting a clinic, I would suggest that you find out how much product you require and then you have a means of comparison.
You would really need to consult with a few people to determine what is the best option for you. I charge by the vial so that the patient knows they are getting what they paid for. In my opinion, by charging by the area this means most patients will be overcharged and a few undercharged. Both treatment options do exist though. You may even consider a surgery if your biggest concern is cost.
I'd recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who does his or her own injections so you can find out about the injectable and surgical options for that area.
I hope this helps and good luck.
In my practice we do kybella as a set price per treatment and do as much product as needed. Economically its much better to do liposuction. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question in regards to Kybella. Pricing will vary from office to office. Depending on how many vials you need per treatment will affect your cost. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
