Fat Dissolving / Double Chin Treatment (Belkyra)
What is Belkyra?
Belkyra, also known as Kybella in the USA, is the first and only non-surgical treatment that is approved by Health Canada for improvement of the appearance of fullness in the area under the chin (ie. double chin). It is a quick and safe treatment, taking about 15-20 minutes and requires a series of sessions to gradually improve your chin profile.
How does Belkyra work?
The active ingredient is Deoxycholic Acid. It is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into a targeted area, it eliminates fat cells resulting in a gradually improving chin profile.
What to expect?
The skin around your chin is cleansed and then a series of quick injections are performed into the fat tissue. After the procedure, you may experience discomfort and swelling of the area. You may take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and apply ice. Swelling is normal and can last for one month.
What does it cost?
A treatment is $700 - $1200 depending if 1 or 2 vials were used. More than one treatment is usually recommended for best results.
