What is Belkyra?
BELKYRA™ is an injectable drug that can redefine the jawline by reducing and potentially eliminating, under the chin (submental) fat. Elimination of your double chin is a very appealing non-invasive alternative to surgery and the time needed for recovery.
BELKYRA™ consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. When injected into a targeted area, it destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the fat inside to be released and naturally eliminated from the body. After treatment, the area will no longer accumulate or store fat.
How long does the treatment last?
Treatment time would be 30-45 minutes as pre-treatment photos would be taken as well.
Visible results are seen gradually over two to four treatments, providing natural-looking results. The total number of treatments needed will vary by individual and can be determined upon consultation with a BELKYRA™ injection trained and qualified medical professional.
Temporary side effects may include bruising, numbness or swelling around the treatment area.
