BELKYRA™ is known as KYBELLA™ in the USA and is the only Health Canada approved, non-surgical treatment of excess fat under the chin. The stubborn double chin is often resistant to diet and exercise. With a series of BELKYRATMinjections you will see a gradual natural reduction of fat under the chin.
- Minimal downtime
- Once desired results are achieved, additional treatments are usually not required
How It Works
The active ingredient in BELKYRA™ is deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that facilitates the breakdown of and absorption of fat.
When injected under the chin, it causes destruction of the fat cell membrane allowing your body to break it down. For best results space your treatments 6 to 8 weeks apart.
What To Expect
The appointment can take 30 – 60 minutes and your treatment plan is customized to achieve your specific goals. Once the treatment area has been mapped out and pre-cooled for comfort, you will receive a series of multiple quick injections. As with most injectable treatments, you may experience swelling, bruising, discomfort, and numbness in the treatment area.
Over the course of your series of treatments (6-18 weeks) you will notice a gradual and natural looking re-contouring of the jawline and chin. Most patients will see visible improvements in their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. In some cases up to 6 treatments are required. Once desired results have been reached, re-treatment is usually not required.
