Belkyra® in Waterloo & Kitchener

Belkyra® is an injectable treatment designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin. It contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Belkyra® breaks down and destroys fat cells, resulting in a more contoured appearance. The treatment typically involves a series of injections, spaced several weeks apart, and can take several sessions to achieve the desired results. Belkyra® is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction and requires minimal downtime, making it a popular option for those seeking a more defined jawline.

What Is Belkyra®?

What Is Belkyra®?

Belkyra® is a non-surgical injectable treatment for reducing submental fat, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” The active ingredient in Belkyra® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the submental area, Belkyra® causes the destruction of fat cells, leading to a reduction in the appearance of a double chin. The treatment is typically administered in a series of injections, with each session lasting approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Most people require between two and six treatments to achieve their desired results. A consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is important to determine if the treatment is right for you.

How Does Belkyra® Work?

How Does Belkyra® Work?

Belkyra® works by injecting deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat, into the submental area. The deoxycholic acid in Belkyra® targets and destroys fat cells, leading to a reduction in the appearance of a double chin. When Belkyra® is injected into the fat under the chin, it causes the destruction of fat cells, which are then absorbed and eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes. Over time, the treated area becomes smoother and more contoured, resulting in a more defined jawline.

What Are The Benefits Of Belkyra®?

What Are The Benefits Of Belkyra®?

The benefits of Belkyra® include:

  • Reduction in the appearance of a double chin: Belkyra® is specifically designed to target and reduce submental fat, which can improve the appearance of a double chin.
  • Non-surgical: Belkyra® is a non-surgical treatment that can achieve similar results to surgical procedures like liposuction or neck lift, without the need for incisions or anesthesia.
  • Minimal downtime: Belkyra® requires little to no downtime, and most people can return to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
  • Permanent results: Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are permanently removed from the body, meaning the results of Belkyra® are long-lasting.

Improved confidence: Many people feel self-conscious about their double chin, and reducing it with Belkyra® can improve their confidence and self-esteem

Who Is A Good Candidate For Belkyra®?

A good candidate for Belkyra® is someone who:

  • Has submental fat or a “double chin” that they would like to reduce.
  • Is in generally good health and has realistic expectations about the results of the treatment.

  • Does not have a history of previous neck surgery or difficulty swallowing.

It is important to note that Belkyra® is not appropriate for everyone, and a consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is necessary to determine if the treatment is right for you.
