Belkyra is a naturally occurring substance in the body which breaks down fat and is used specifically to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as a “double chin”.
For patients who suffer from a double chin, Belkyra injections are a non-surgical alternative that requires no incisions, no surgery and virtually no downtime. Belkyra is an injectable treatment comprised of synthetic deoxyholic acid (DCA). When injected beneath the skin Belkyra destroys fat cells and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. The result? A noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, and an improved chin profile.
What to expect?
Our licensed and trained physician will create a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs based on your chin profile. At each treatment session, you will be given small injections under the chin. You may require two to four treatment sessions, spaced at least one month apart.
How long does Belkyra last?
When Belkyra is injected into the fat under the chin, it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Once you have reached your desired appearance, no further treatment is required.
