Kybella® is a minimally-invasive technique that uses an injectable form of deoxycholic acid to target and reduces under-chin fat without surgery. It’s currently the only FDA-approved injectable procedure to treat this area.Kybella® breaks down submental fullness (fat below the chin) for a more youthful and streamlined appearance.
Kybella® prices can range anywhere from $1200 to $1800 per treatment. The total cost will be affected by the number of treatments required, the amount of product needed to obtain the best result, and regional differences in healthcare fees.
Nearly 70% of individuals were bothered by the appearance of fullness or fat under the chin, according to a 2015 survey by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. If you are one of the many people interested in nonsurgical treatment of submental fat, several variables can factor into the total cost of treatment.
#1: The earlier, the better
A double chin can age a person’s face, but it can happen even when younger, and even when we’re at a healthy weight. Once there is noticeable fullness under the chin, it can be beneficial to tackle this problem before it becomes more severe. Earlier treatment can help save you time, money and stress – and help you look better with fewer treatments.
#2: Individual treatment goals
Kybella® is usually administered as a series of treatments, depending on each patient’s particular goals. Our highly skilled dermatologists will consult with you on the best number of treatments for your desired outcome. The majority of patients have noticeable positive results after only 1-treatment, but Kybella® can be administered up to 6-times as needed with treatments spaced one month apart.
Kybella® is made from a synthesized compound of deoxycholic acid, a form of bile acid naturally produced by your own body which helps to break down cells. Because Kybella® can potentially break down many types of tissues, this treatment should only be administered by specially-trained Kybella® professionals. Choosing a skilled cosmetic dermatologist will maximize overall outcomes while minimizing complications and side effects.

I highly recommend Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi and Capital Laser & Skin Care. I have had multiple services performed by Dr. Tanzi and her staff, and couldn’t be more pleased with the results and overall care. Over the years I’ve had botox on my forehead, laser hair removal on my legs, under arms and bikini line, and brown spot removal on my face. Most recently I had Coolsculpting on my chin (or double chin, that is) and belly. Dr. Tanzi made recommendations based on my unique characteristics, set clear expectations for results, and never pushed services that I didn’t need or that wouldn’t work on me. Her honest and natural approach in this field is truly unique and appreciated. The results met or exceeded expectations every time – I’m thrilled with the end results. I never thought anything could get rid of my double chin, but after two treatments with mini Coolsculpting it is finally gone. And all of the staff in the office are professional and very caring, ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible during your procedures. The office feels more like a spa that a doctor’s office, which helps tremendously (there are TV’s in the rooms for Coolsculpting, which made the time fly, thank goodness). I get complimented quite often that I don’t look like I’m in my late 40s, and I attribute that to the excellent work of Dr. Tanzi.
