What is it?
BELKYRA™, also known as KYBELLA™ in the United States, is an injectable drug that over a series of sessions will help to reduce the fat layer in the chin to help redefine your jawline and slim your chin. It is an effective way to get rid of your double chin without surgery. BELKYRA™ is a made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. Deoxycholic acid when injected will destroy the cell membranes of fat cells under the skin and help with the absorption of fat.
Both BELKYRA™ (Canada) and KYBELLA™ (United States) are Health Canada and FDA approved, respectively. They are simple aesthetic injections performed by a skilled and trained medical specialist much like the injection of a dermal filler like JUVEDERM®.
BELKYRA™ treatment prices are based on the amount of submental fat you have. It is rated from mild, moderate, to severe. Pricing starts from $1,000 plus tax for those who have a mild form of a double chin. For those who have a more severe form of a double chin, pricing can be between $1500-$2000, as more sessions (thus more product) is required to achieve visible contouring of the chin profile. A complimentary consultation with our Nurse injectors will determine how much your BELKYRA™ treatments will cost.
Who's the best candidate?
The best candidates are women and men who are over the age of 18, and are bothered by the look of excess fat underneath the chin keeping in mind to be a good candidate you need to also have realistic expectations and be relatively healthy.
A double chin is a bother for many as it makes them appear to be
heavier, less healthier, and older than how they really are. If you try
to hide your chin or complain about its appearance then perhaps it is
time for you to book your free consultation to discuss what
BELKYRA™ can do for you.
The possible side effects you may experience from BELKYRA™ are very similar to those you may experience from dermal fillers, mainly bruising and swelling.
Swelling is the most common side effect that patients will experience. This will occur after the injection and can last up to three days. Bruising, some discomfort, itchiness, and redness usually accompanies the swelling.
Many patients then experience numbness or tenderness, or even a mixture of both under the chin, which can last up to 2 months.
