Double chin reduction treatment with BELKYRA

Belkyra is injectable drug for those adults who are uncomfortable with a double chin or pouch of fat around the jaw.  Belkyra – a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid – is designed to dissolve fat of the chin. This special formulation can break down the unwanted fat and remove it from the body.

When injected into subcutaneous fat, Belkyra causes destruction of fat cells. You may be treated with a topical numbing medicine or an ice pack, local anesthesia as well to ease pain and make you comfortable during the injections. Your doctor will determine the right number of injections and how many sessions you need, depending on the results you want.

A single treatment consists of multiple injections. The number of injections and the number of treatments should be tailored to the individual patient’s submental fat distribution and treatment goals. Patients achieve the desired results in 2-4 sessions. However, if needed up to a maximum of 6 treatments can be performed at intervals no less than 1 month apart.

If you are taking other medicines or controlling sodium use, please inform your doctor during the consultation.
