Kybella has been available since July 2015. It is done in the office to reduce fat under the chin. I would not recommend placing Kybella in the lower cheek region due to the potential for nerve damage.
Kybella is individually priced according to the doctor you see.
Kybella is now available in select offices- we will be offering Kybella at the Larrabee Center beginning at the end of next week.
Cost varies based upon the physician's office as well as the amount of product and number of treatments recommended. We offer free consultations in our office, as do many others. I would recommend having a consultation so that the cost estimate can be customized to you. That said, the treatment is fairly pricey and ranges $1200-2000 per session. It usually takes 2-4 sessions to achieve the desired result.
It cannot be used in the lower cheek, because there are nerves in that location that control your smile. Best of luck!
Kybella is available at select practices
Kybella is available at select practices across the country currently. The cost per vial varies according to geography, ranging anywhere from $600-$1000 per vial. Most patients will need 1-3 vials per session, and 2-4 sessions, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be reduced. Currently, it has only been approved for use to address fat in the neck. There is concern for irritating or injuring the facial nerve if it is injected in the lower cheek/jowl region right above the jaw, as you have described. Hope this helps!
This interesting treatment for submental/double chin fat had quite good data in clinical trials, although a few treatments may be needed over a few months, and there is some pain and swelling involved with it. It should hopefully be out in the next 1-2 years, and there will likely be lots of off-label uses for other areas with stubborn fat, from localized areas under the eyes perhaps, to larger stubborn fat areas in the abdomen or hips.
Kybella Availability in Newport Beach!
KYBELLA®, now FDA-approved, is used to improve the appearance and
profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin --often referred to as a
“double chin .1, 2 or 3 treatments might be needed 4-6 weeks
apart depending on individual needs.
We suggest an analgesic for mild
discomfort and swelling at the time of the visit and send patients home
with ice packs and a chin strap to improve the recovery time! The costs will vary based on the amount of area needing treating .

Thankfully, Kybella is now available in the USA and likely Canada. It is currently FDA approved for helping to improve double chins. The issue with treating in the face is the spread of the product and fibrosis afterwards.
This is useful in the chin when performed carefully but in the face, it could be risky because the solution might affect neighboring muscles and nerves. Hopefully, over time the cost for the product will come down allowing this to be used for abdominal fat and love handles, but at this time, procedure is only cost effect for small areas like the chin. I hope this was helpful. You can look at the Kybella site to see if there is someone in your area who is approved to offer this treatment.
ATX-101(Kybella) is available now
Kybella is now available to practices that have been specially selected by the company. We are currently one of a few practices in the Washington, DC area to offer this. Depending on where you live, major urban regions are charging about 1500 dollars per treatment. Currently it is only FDA approved to use in the submental region for the "double chin." The results are fantastic.
ATX 101 is an injectable that will reduce or eliminate the double chin or submental fullness - Williamsville, NY
ATX 101 has been cleared by the FDA for eliminating submental fullness, also known as a double chin. It is an injectable made from deoxycholic acid by Kythera Pharmaceuticals.
It is interesting to note that 7 out of 10 'consumers' are bothered by this problem and this is going to be a game changer for many, who do not desire liposuction. It can be done in the comfort of an office with no down time.
What makes it very interesting is that a very recent study showed that TEXTING and playing computer games causes this problem.
As in any product or procedure, as time goes on, its use elsewhere in the face and body will be evaluated.
We are very excited about using ATX 101 and plan to incorporate its use in our Medical and Laser practice at Advanced Aesthetic Medical Spa in Williamsville, NY.
Off label uses of Kybella
Kybella has been available since July 2015. It is gradually gaining popularity as more physicians have become trained in its proper use. Allergan plans on launching a large consumer driven marketing campaign to increase awareness of this novel non surgical treatment for submittal fullness.Kybella is contraindicated in the cheek area because there is a risk of nerve damage that can lead to facial paralysis. I anticipate that it will be investigated for other areas in the body where liposuction is used and the risk of nerve damage is minimal in the future.
When will Kybella be available? Any potential off label uses? Costs?
Kybella is now available in Canada. Currently the only on-label use is for submental fat (double chin) but eventually is likely to be licensed for other areas. At this point the product is far too new for safe off label use so I would not suggest using it anywhere it hasn't been studied. Hope that helps!
