What is Belkyra ®?
This injectable treatment is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid that can be used to reduce fullness under the chin and improve facial contour by destroying the fat cells beneath the chin, which prevents them from storing fat.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients can achieve optimal results of Belkyra ® with a series of two to four injection sessions spaced about four to six weeks apart. Depending on the needs and aesthetic goals of the patient, some patients may require up to six injection sessions in order to achieve optimal results. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan based on your needs and goals of treatment.
What kind of results can I expect?
The deoxycholic acid found in Belkyra ® permanently destroys the fat cells in the treated area and prevents them from storing fat in the future. Results of this treatment are long-lasting and can be permanent with regular maintenance of your weight. Patients who experience significant weight gain may reverse the effects of Belkyra ® and require future injection sessions to maintain results.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience some temporary side effects, including discomfort, swelling, bruising, tenderness, and/or redness at the injection sites. These side effects are mild and typically resolve on their own within a week of an injection session.
Who is a candidate?
We recommend Belkyra ® treatment to men and women who are interested in a non-surgical treatment to reduce fullness under the chin and improve the appearance of a double-chin. During your consultation, we will review your general health, medical history, and aesthetic goals and determine if Belkyra ® is the right aesthetic treatment for you.
