What is BELKYRA®?

BELKYRA® (Kybella) is an injectable product which is based on deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is produced naturally in the body, where it works to help the body to absorb fat.

When injected into fatty tissues, the agent physically destroys the fat cells, breaking down deposits of fat for a smoother and more lean profile.

Frequently Asked Questions

The active ingredient in BELKYRA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, this a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, BELKRYA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.

Treatment does not take very long – usually about twenty minutes.

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient.

Our Doctor will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.

Each BELKYRA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.

Once destroyed, the cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
