BELKYRA™ Before & After Photos

What causes fullness under the chin?

Fullness under the chin, sometimes referred to as "double chin," is a common, yet undertreated, facial aesthetic concern that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Cause may include aging, genetics and changes in your weight. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the fullness in this area may not go away, and make you feel like you look older and heavier than you actually are.


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. 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 doctor. Once your desired results are achieved, re-treatment is not expected.

  • Is a quick and easy injectable treatment that can be completed in office in 15 to 20 minutes.
  • It is customized to help you achieve your treatment goals.
  • It targets and eliminates fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once your goals are achieved, re-treatment is not expected.

How many treatments will I need?

Many clients treated with BELKYRA experience visible improvement of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve results. Once your goals have been met, re-treatment is not expected.

Many BELKYRA clients enhance their look further while they are here with other medical injectables such as BOTOX COSMETIC® or JUVÉDERM® treatments.


Is there any downtime?

For most clients, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session.


Will I experience any side effects?

As with other injectable treatments, you may experience side effects with BELKYRA. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain and numbness. In clinical trials, the incidence and severity of most side effects was generally mild to moderate and decreased with subsequent BELKYRA treatments.

Prior to administering BELKYRA, our doctor may apply ice/cold packs or topical anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. He or she may also suggest you take an over the counter pain reliever before your appointment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes as needed.
