BELKYRA™ Non-Surgical Treatment for Double Chin

Why Belkyra™?

At Beauty Within, we offer treatment with Belkyra™ (deoxycholic acid injection). Both FDA and Health Canada approved, Belkyra™ is the first and only non-surgical treatment in Canada for improvement of the appearance of fullness in the area under the chin. (Belkyra™ is known as Kybella™ in the USA.)

Perhaps you have tried exercising and changing your diet, but still have a double chin that just will not go away. Sometimes, a double chin has nothing to do with body weight and instead can be due to factors such as genetics or hormones. This can be frustrating because it can make you look older or heavier than you actually are. Treatment with Belkyra™ may be your solution.

Belkyra™ is distributed by Allergan, the world leader in medical aesthetics. Health Canada approved, this treatment is provided only by trained and experienced health professionals who understand the relevant sub-mental anatomy and associated neuromuscular structures in the area involved.

What Does Belkyra™ Address?

The active ingredient in Belkyra™ is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid (a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat).

Belkyra™ targets and eliminates fat cells when injected into the area under your chin.

Belkyra™ gradually improves your chin profile over a number of treatment sessions customized by your treating physician.

Belkyra™ might be right for you if:

  • You are bothered by fullness under the chin
  • Surgery is not an option for you
  • You eat well and exercise, but the fullness under your chin does not go away

Benefits:

  • Non-surgical, non-invasive.
  • Reduction or elimination of a double chin.
  • Treatment is quick (approximately 30 minutes) and you can resume normal activities postprocedure.
  • Minimal downtime (patients must adhere to Post Care Instructions for best results)
  • Once your desired results are achieved, re-treatment is not expected.

Results:

  • For the best results, Belkyra™ requires a series of 2 to 4 treatments, typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
  • Results gradually appear during the weeks and months following treatment.
  • The best results are obtained in individuals with moderate fat and good quality sub-mental skin.

How Much Does Treatment with Belkyra™ Cost?

Treatment plans are customized and unique to you. At Beauty Within, Belkyra™ treatments are calculated on a “per vial” basis. A consultation is required in order to determine the amount of product required. Depending upon the amount of sub-mental (under chin) fat you have (mild, moderate or severe), more product may be required, thus increasing price.

Consultations are complimentary and an individualized quote is provided. Book Today!
