Belkyra™ is the latest innovative beauty breakthrough in aesthetic treatments for men and women bothered by fullness under the chin, more commonly known as a double chin. This stubborn fat is a common concern for many adults, even if you are fit and slim. Aging, genetics, and weight changes can contribute to this issue, making you feel older and heavier than you actually are. People looking for solutions now have a non-surgical treatment called Belkyra™ (also known by its American trade name, Kybella®), to achieve an improved and more refined chin profile.
The active ingredient in Belkyra™ is a substance called deoxycholic acid, or deoxycholate, a compound naturally produced by the liver that aids in the digestion of fat in the food we eat. When isolated and administered into the unwanted fat that appears as a double chin, deoxycholic acid helps the body to metabolize and filter away this fat.
This active ingredient is found in most lipodissolve “cocktails,” and has been used since 1988 by physicians with great safety and success. Belkyra™ has been extensively tested and approved by Health Canada for the treatment of submental fullness in adults.
During each 15-20 minute treatment session, Belkyra™ is administered through a series of quick, comfortable injections. Treatment sessions are usually spaced 3-4 weeks apart for optimal results. You may return to your normal activities immediately following a treatment. Although you may experience some bleeding, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at or near the treatment area, these side effects are typically short-lived and mild.
Over time, you’ll notice your double chin gradually receding, revealing a slimmer, natural-looking neckline.
