Both men and women may be affected by submental fullness (double chin), which can be caused by weight gain, genetics or aging. Belkyra™ is a Health Canada approved safe injectable substance that is used to reduce and potentially eliminate fat under the chin to improve your profile.
Belkrya™ is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, and consists of a series of injections of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injected into fat cells, it leads to destruction of fat cells. These fat cells will be permanently destroyed, however maintaining healthy lifestyle is recommended to avoid producing additional fat cells.
Typically 2-4 treatments are needed for desired results, spaced at one month apart. Some people may find they need 6 treatments. Each treatment usually requires 2 syringes.
