  • Deoxycholic Acid (Belkyra)

Belkyra™ is the only Health Canada-approved non-surgical injectable for reducing moderate to severe fat deposits under the chin. It is commonly used to treat submental fat (double chin), which can be difficult, if not impossible, to lose via dieting and exercise. 

Belkyra™ contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Upon injection in the subcutaneous fat, Belkyra™ destroys the fat cells and prevents them from storing and accumulating fat in the future. 

A single treatment takes no more than 15 to 20 minutes to complete and requires no downtime. Dermatologists usually recommend 2 to 3 sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results. The effects of the treatment are permanent.

More About Deoxycholic Acid (Belkyra)

Who is this treatment for?

Belkyra™ is an effective solution for people wanting to lose their double chins due to genetics and aging without undergoing invasive and potentially dangerous surgery.

The treatment is not suitable for patients who:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are younger than 18 years old
  • Currently have an infection in the chin area
  • Have trouble breathing and swallowing 

What are the expected results of this treatment? 

Belkyra™ permanently destroys the fat cells in the chin area. The outcome is a slimmer chin and a more defined jawline. 

The number of injections depends on the patient’s submental fat distribution; no more than 3 treatments usually suffice for best results. 

Side effects should be no more significant than temporary discomfort and swelling. 

Belkyra™ is a safe, painless, and convenient alternative to chin surgery. It is an effective way to lose submental fat without resorting to months and years of dieting and exercise. At Danny Guo MD, our estheticians offer the Belkyra™ treatment at an accessible cost, along with periodical monitoring.
