Gone are the days when cosmetic procedures for removing fat meant going through surgery with a plastic surgeon. These days, patients have access to a wide variety of fat removal procedures, with nonsurgical options like CoolSculpting and Kybella to remove fat. For patients who don't want to go through the long recovery period for surgical procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting and Kybella are excellent cosmetic treatments, especially if you want to manage something like a double chin.
But how exactly do the costs between Kybella injections and CoolSculpting differ, and which one should patients use if they're looking for an affordable treatment? In general, both treatments work well with removing the amounts of fat in a double chin, but since CoolSculpting can work in a single session, it's more cost-effective compared to Kybella. Apart from that, there are also other advantages that a patient can get from going through CoolSculpting treatment sessions apart from a reduction in fat.

Both Kybella and CoolSculpting can remove fat from the body without breaking through the skin, and their effects last for a long time. Both of them can be done in minutes, and don't require much in the way of post-procedure aftercare. There's little risk of side effects as well, with most patients reporting only minor swelling and tenderness if they experience any.
Kybella injections work by using deoxycholic acid to melt the fat cells under the skin. As an injectable treatment, all patients need to do is to get it injected under their skin and the pockets of fat that form a double chin should disappear after a few treatment sessions. On average, the cost of Kybella treatments can start anywhere from $2,000 and above.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a fat-freezing treatment that freezes the neck fat from the inside which causes it to break down and be ejected as waste. It's a simple treatment that works well for double chin reduction if the provider has the right applicator fit to work on the chin. The average cost of a CoolSculpting treatment will usually start at around $1,500.
You can see immediately that CoolSculpting costs a lot less than Kybella injections - and that's primarily because CoolSculpting technology allows it to work on one session, while Kybella treatments often require multiple injections. The more fat that needs to be removed from the area, the more injections you need, so those costs will continue to pile up.
So if you're looking to save on costs while still getting fat reduction treatments, CoolSculpting is the best choice. It offers roughly the same benefits that Kybella can get you, but with the bonus of costing less in the long run.
But aside from reduced costs, there are also other benefits to getting CoolSculpting treatments for a double chin. As a non-invasive procedure for body contouring, the applications that you can get for a CoolSculpting treatment go beyond simply removing pockets of fat.
Here are some of the other benefits you can enjoy from a CoolSculpting treatment:
CoolSculpting is one of the few FDA-approved treatments that can work on the abdomen, waist, thighs, and arms. Since the technology used is non-invasive and can work on anyone regardless of their skin type, it's an incredibly versatile treatment.
Since CoolSculpting uses cooling plates through applicator treatment, it's possible for a provider to precisely carve out the area where fat cells need to be removed. While it can take a while for your body to remove the fat itself, you can rely on the treatment only removing the fat that you want and not an inch more.
One drawback to other invasive methods of treatment like surgery is that they can't always account for how the body will react to the changes after the treatment is finished. Scar tissue can drastically affect the appearance of results, which can lower patient satisfaction. As a non-invasive treatment, CoolSculpting doesn't run into this issue.
If you need a series of treatments for CoolSculpting, it's possible to shift around your treatment plan to how your body responds to your earlier treatments. Since the results from fat reduction can vary from patient to patient, it's usually a good idea to monitor yourself a few months after treatment to see if you need another session. If you do, your provider can usually tailor it to your needs.
Injectable treatments like Kybella often run into side effects associated with needle injections, like bleeding, bruising, scarring, or tenderness. Because CoolSculpting treatments don't break the skin, you don't suffer any of the common side effects that you'll get from other treatments. In fact, most patients can usually resume their regular activities soon after finishing their treatment sessions.
Overall, if you don't have a lot of fat to remove and you're fairly close to your weight goals, few treatments will work as well for you compared to CoolSculpting. It's an excellent alternative to liposuction and requires almost zero effort on your part to maintain your results. Combined with the proper diet and exercise, it's a one-time treatment that you can always rely on to give you the results that you want.
Kybella injections and Coolsculpting treatments are both excellent ways to remove fat for patients who don't want to go under the knife. But if they're looking at long-term costs, CoolSculpting can definitely edge out Kybella injections for fat reduction, especially if they're already close to their ideal body and just need some help getting those last bits of fat out of the way. With the right applicator, even submental fullness can be easily handled by the effects of CoolSculpting.

"The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting
"It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
