Double Chin Treatment

What is Belkyra™ and Kybella™?

Belkyra™ (also known as Kybella™ in the United States) is a revolutionary non-surgical injectable option to successfully treat submental (under the chin) fat. This in turn effectively eliminates the double chin. It is the first and only non-surgical FDA and Health Canada approved treatment to address submental fat.

Who Is A Good Candidate for Belkyra™ and Kybella™?

Sometimes, a double chin has nothing to do with your weight. At times your double chin may be due to hormones or it could be hereditary. Belkyra™ and Kybella™ are ideal for people who are:

  • Over the age of 18 who are in good health
  • Resistant to exercise and diet
  • Looking for a non-surgical option
  • Seeking a safe and effective cosmetic procedure to reduce fat under their chin
  • Unhappy with the appearance of a “double chin” caused by submental fullness

How does Belkyra™ and Kybella™ work?

Our medical professional will assess the treatment area and discuss your desired look. Based on the consultation we will be able to determine how many treatments will be needed to achieve your goal. Then, Belkyra™ is injected under the chin causing the destruction of fat cells. Upon destruction, these cells won’t be able to store fat, making the results of your Belkyra™ treatment permanent.

The Belkyra™ Procedure

Upon arrival of your Belkyra™ appointment, we will take a few “before” photos so you and your injector can track the difference.

Next, a topical analgesic will be applied to make your Belkyra™ treatment more comfortable. A transparent grid will be placed onto your chin acting as a grid for the injector to follow. This ensures accuracy and optimal smooth balanced results.

Post-Care Treatment

Patients experience minimal downtime after a Belkyra™ treatment. Once your goals are achieved, retreatment is typically not expected. Many people notice a visible improvement in their profile in just 2-4 treatments; however, your medical professional may recommend up to 6 treatments.
