Belkyra™ Chin Fat Treatment
Define your jaw: lose the double chin!
Annoyed by submental fullness (aka a double chin)?
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by their “double chin” (67%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69%). In fact, the condition, which can make you look older and heavier, even has a name. It’s called submental fullness (fullness under the chin), and can have a negative psychological impact on patients.
Fullness under the chin can impact men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as genetics, weight gain and aging, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
Belkyra: the non-surgical solution
New and non‐surgical treatment options are now available that target and reduce fat under the chin. Health Canada recently approved a quick and easy injectable treatment that can be completed in office 15 to 20 minutes. This procedure is customized to help you achieve your submental fullness treatment goals and once they are achieved, re‐treatment is not expected.

Men simply don't accept their double chins!
Initial interest in Belkyra shows that males are not OK with the double chin that they may have inherited or that simply appeared over time.
Have you heard? BELKYRA™ is now in Kelowna, BC, Canada! Lakeshore Vein & Aesthetics Clinic was the first clinic in Kelowna to be trained in Belkyra, (March 2016, according to Belkyra manufacturer Allergan), and immediately trialed the product to treat a dreaded double chin. So the first person in Kelowna, let's call her Kelown Belkyra Patient X, states: "Even after only a few weeks people have noticed that my double chin has diminished! I am convinced that Belkyra is amazing."

What is BELKYRA™?
Like Juvederm and Botox Cosmetic also produced by Allergan, Belkyra is an injectable aesthetic product. Specifically, Belkyra is deoxycholic acid. Called Belkyra Injectable in Canada, it is Health Canada approved. It is called Kybella Injectable in the United States and likewise FDA approved. It has been proven a safe injectable substance, that is used to reduce and potentially erase the excess fat under the chin – a double chin, or in physiological precision, a submental fullness.
Belkyra is the first and only Health Canada- and FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat).
Are there exercises to lose a double chin?
How does BELKYRA™ work?
The active ingredient in Belkyra® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Belkyra® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
By the way, it is not known if Belkyra® is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. Also, if you are wondering, it is not known if Belkyra® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area. (Wondering about using Belkyra for excess fat treatment to reduce your tummy, spare tire, saddle-bags or muffin top? Better to consider CoolSculpting!)
What is treatment like?
The non-invasive treatment method is to inject the Belkyra drug in grid pattern under the chin, customized to each patient and the pattern of stubborn fat. Optimal results are achieved with a series of sessions, typically two to three, to reduce the fat layer in the chin, help redefine your jawline and slim your chin. It is an effective way to get rid of your double chin without surgery.
Is BELKYRA™ right for me?
It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
- 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
- People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
What can I expect from BELKYRA™?
Belkyra®/KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with the drug (as of late 2015).
How many treatments of BELKYRA™ will I require?
You and your doctor will customize your Belkyra® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your service provider will administer Belkyra® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart. Lose your double chin fast!
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, Belkyra® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. They are gone. GONE. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Belkyra® is not expected.

An individual consultation defines a patient's most effective treatment. Expected results are discussed and realistic treatment outcomes are established to suit your skin type and lifestyle. Cost and duration of treatment is determined during your personal consultation. Customized packages are created for each patient. It all depends on your needs and expectations: we provide expert recommendations – and you choose the right treatment for you.
Price range and number of treatments can vary greatly with each patient – again, a personal consultation is required – but here are typical ranges directly depending on amount of Belkyra you require:
- Small quantity, $1100.
- Medium quantity, $1800.
- Large quantity, $2400.
Per treatment, and optimal results are typically achieved with two to four treatments. As treatment progresses, less Belkyra may be required, therefore the investment amount may be reduced in subsequent treatments.
Taxes not included.
