BELKYRA™ & KYBELLA™
The New Non-Surgical Double Chin Reduction
What is it?
How does BELKYRA™ work?
By disrupting the fat cell membrane, it causes lysis—or destroys the cell membrane. After that, the fat cell releases its fatty contents and the body metabolizes the fatty contents as normal*.
BELKYRA™ vs. Liposuction of the Chin
If you’re weighing the benefits of BELKYRA™ vs. liposuction, here are some things to consider:
- A liposuction surgery is done in a single visit. With BELKYRA™, you might require a few treatments spaced out at least a month apart. Liposuction on the other hand is surgery, so you’re looking at a longer, harder recovery.
- Both treatment methods are generally comparable price-wise.
BELKYRA™ is less invasive. You avoid all the negative issues involved with surgery, such as anesthesia and other risks associated with surgery, such as the risk of infection and longer downtime.
- It’s important to note that BELKYRA™ can only be used for removal of fat under the chin. If you have loose skin in this area (“turkey neck”), Belkyra can’t address that problem. If you have a double chin and saggy skin, you may want to consider one of our non-surgical skin tightening treatments*.
During a complimentary assessment one of our experienced specialist will help determine the best treatment option for your skin concerns.
How is it administered?
BELKYRA™ chin reduction is injected subcutaneously using an area-adjusted dose. One treatment can consist of up to 50 tiny injections. Because the procedure relies on the natural process of fat breakdown, several treatments may be needed once a month.
Am I a candidate?
Anyone over 18, in good health with moderate-to-severe submental fat can reap the benefits of this aesthetic treatment. If your chin has a twin, and you’d like to improve its appearance without the risk of surgery – BELKYRA™ may be the suitable treatment option for you.
Is BELKYRA™ painful?
Pain is always relative, but most patients report only mild discomfort at the beginning of the procedure that subsides as the treatment progresses. A very fine needle is used to inject and a topical anesthetic is also used to make the treatment more comfortable*.
How long does the procedure take?
Treatment takes about 20 minutes – BELKYRA™ is the latest option in the growing lunchtime-lift market*.
When can I expect results?
Most patients see noticeable results in 2 to 3 sessions that are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart*.
How long do results last?
Here’s the best part: once your aesthetic goal has been reached, there is no need for further treatment. Since BELKYRA™ dissolves the fat cells, you get rid of your double chin for good*!
Is there any downtime with BELKYRA™?
Minor bruising and swelling is the most common side effect that patients will experience, this usually resolves within several days. Most clients resume regularly activities immediately afterwards.
