What is BELKYRA™?
BELKYRA™, also known as KYBELLA™ in the United States, is an injectable drug that over a series of sessions will help to reduce the fat layer in the chin to help redefine your jawline and slim your chin. It is an effective way to get rid of your double chin without surgery. BELKYRA™ is a made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. Deoxycholic acid when injected will destroy the cell membranes of fat cells under the skin and help with the absorption of fat.
Both BELKYRA™ (Canada) and KYBELLA™ (United States) are Health Canada and FDA approved, respectively. They are simple aesthetic injections performed by a skilled and trained aesthetic dermatology physician much like the injection of a dermal filler like JUVEDERM®.
