What is Belkyra?
Are you sometimes frustrated with the appearance of your chin profile? If so, you may wish to learn more about Belkyra, a breakthrough treatment for fullness under the chin.
Belkyra is an injectable drug that helps reduce the layer of fat under the chin, for both men and women. This non-surgical treatment provides a non-invasive solution for people who may be bothered by the appearance of a double chin.
The active ingredient in Belkyra is Deoxycholic Acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Belkyra is approved by Health Canada, and may only be administered by a trained health professional. Belkyra is approved for treatment of the chin area only.
What to expect
The staff at SKiN Laser Clinic will provide you with a personalized consultation to determine your suitability for this treatment.
If Belkyra is a good fit for you, the number of treatments you require varies by the amount of fat in the area and your goals.
Belkyra is injected into the subcutaneous fat in the chin area. Multiple injections are made to achieve sufficient coverage of the area. Treatments can be completed in as little as 15 to 20 minutes.
The appearance of the chin area gradually improves with each treatment performed. Once your goals are achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
Potential Side Effects
Some patients may experience mild discomfort at the injection site and bruising afterwards. We may apply a local numbing medication during the treatment to maximize your comfort.
