2015 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Recipient
Belkyra® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin for a gradually improved profile – whether you have a moderate amount of fullness or a bit more.
Belkyra® may be right for you if:
You’re bothered by fat under the chin (submental fullness)
You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
You don’t want to have surgery
Before and After
How does Belkyra® work?
The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
What causes fullness under the chin?
Fullness under the chin (“double chin”) is a common, yet untreated, facial aesthetic concern. Causes may include:
Aging (it may naturally develop as you age)
Genetics (simply said, it may be part of your DNA)
How long does the procedure take?
It’s a quick and easy injectable treatment that can be completed in the clinic in 15 to 20 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
Your appearance will gradually improve over 1 to 3 sessions. Once your goals are achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
Is there downtime?
Downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session.
“I used to be a little heavier and my double chin was really obvious. But even after I lost the weight, it was still there.”
