BELKYRA® also known as Kybella® is one of the most popular treatments sought by those looking to target submental fullness. So how does it work you ask? Well, our team member Deigh-Anna is happy to share all the details from her treatments and share the amazing results she has reaped.
I decided to try belkyra because I have started to notice more of a double chin as I have gotten older and I would love to have a more sculpted looking jawline angle, especially in photos.
The treatment itself only took about 30 minutes to complete, it was pretty quick, something easy to do over my lunch break.
I have had 2 treatments now in total. My second treatment was about a week ago which was almost 4 months after my first. I am still a little swollen but excited to see the results!
Because of the high quality topical anesthetic cream we used prior to the treatment, it honestly didn’t hurt much at all. Maybe a 1 or 2 on a scale of 10. It felt more like a dull ache more than pain.
BELKYRA® is the first non-surgical injectable treatment in Canada that eliminates fat cells under the chin. It contains a patented formulation of deoxycholic acid, an acid that is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies used to digest fat in our diets. In the hands of an expert injector BELKYRA® is injected into the submental area and the deoxycholic acid works to destroy the fat cell membrane allowing the fat to be dissolved out of the body.
Anyone who is bothered by their double chin, or submental fullness. It is best to book a consultation to see how BELKYRA® can work for you.
Most patients need 2 to 4 treatments of BELKYRA®. I suggest booking a complimentary consultation to find out what your treatment plan would be and how many treatments you would require to achieve your desired results.
The best part about this treatment is its permanency. Once the fat cells are destroyed they are gone forever, generally there is no re-treatment necessary with BELKYRA®.
Every patient is different and post treatment downtime can vary. Most patients experience swelling for the first week after their treatment. You can also expect to experience some pain and bruising after the first treatment so we recommend keeping this in mind when scheduling your social plans and work commitments.
