A VIAL $600
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for under chin fullness that has been utilized in other off-label uses (lipomas, love handles, bra roll- front and back, and abdomen).
Before starting treatment, your injector will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your injector will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
Price per vial: $600.
Here at Cheeky, we sell KYBELLA® by the vial because no two people are alike. Each treatment is tailored to each client. Most treatments utilize between 3-4 vials.
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin, this is expected. Be sure to inform your injector if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.
