What is Belkyra?

Are you unhappy with the look of excess fat under your chin, also known as submental fullness, or a double chin? If so, you are not alone. Many men and women who exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet still have excess fat under their chin, which can make them appear older or heavier than they really are. This may be due to genetics or the aging process. If you are looking for an efficient and effective solution to your double chin, Belkyra is a great choice.

Belkyra is an injectable product that is designed to eliminate modest to moderate submental fat under the chin. It is formulated with synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Belkyra is injected into the fat under the chin, it effectively destroys the fat cells, so you can enjoy long-lasting results.

What to Expect During Your Belkyra Treatment?

During your Belkyra treatment, your facial profile will be analyzed to confirm the optimal area for treatment. Then, Dr. Beach will administer multiple small injections under your chin. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. The treatment process takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Dr. Beach will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each Belkyra treatment session is given at least one month apart, with a general maximum of up to six treatments.

Who is a Good Candidate for Belkyra?

Adults 18 years and older who are unhappy with small amounts of excess fat under their chin can benefit from Belkyra injections. Be sure to let Dr. Beach know if you have a medical condition in or near the neck area, have a history of bleeding problems, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have had or are planning on having surgery on your face, neck, or chin, as an alternative treatment option may be the best choice. To learn if you are a good candidate for Belkyra, contact our office today to schedule your consultation. 

What to Expect After Your Belkyra Treatment?

Following Belkyra injections, it is common to experience swelling, slight numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area, though these effects dissipate with time. Following Belkyra injections, swelling is the most common symptom and dissipates within a couple of weeks so that you can feel free to resume your everyday routine once you feel comfortable. Because Belkyra destroys fat cells in the targeted area, results are long-lasting.
