Kybella Cost and Pricing
Kybella comes in 2cc vials and the average per patient is 2-3 vials per treatment. Kybella's average price is $600 per vial, so it sounds to me that they are selling 1/2 vials (1cc). I would clarify with the provider exactly how many cc's in each syringe so you know exactly what you are paying for.
Hope this helps!
Yes, prices are set by med spa and clinic themselves. Just like any other business, the drug is purchased from the wholesaler - in this case Allergan, and then the med spa and clinic will mark it up however they feel appropriate. This particular Doctor may be selling it as a lost leader to get more business as $300/ vial is just a little bit over the regular wholesale price.
Cost of Kybella depends on how much solution is used.

Kybella Price Per Vial
Kybella runs about $600 a vial so my guess is that your surgeon is charging you for 1/2 a vial. However, check with the office to find out for certain.
Pricing & Kybella
Thanks for your question. It’s best to consult with a board certified dermatologist when seeking treatment to avoid potential problems. If it sounds to good to be true, then it may be. Better to reference certifications before price. Hope this helps. Best, Dr. Katz
Cost of Kybella
One vial of Kybella is typically $600 and is used to fill two syringes. So $300 per syringe is the same as $600 per vial. Most patients are going to need 2 vials for a treatment with some benefiting from 3. And most patients are going to benefit from 2-4 treatments. Kybella is purchased directly from Allergan and the provider sets the final price, just like with Botox and other injectibles. The price charged reflects overhead/staff salaries/insurance costs/etc. Most reputable providers have similar costs. So I would be cautious about a price that seems significantly lower than the surrounding area.
