What is Belkyra?
BELKYRA™ is an injectable drug that can reduce submental (under the chin) fat and redefine your jawline, effectively eliminating your double chin without surgery. The treatment consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies.
How does Belkyra work?
Once you have had your free consultation with Dr. Murad, she will determine the right amount of Belkyra needed for the best results. When injected into a targeted area, it destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the fat inside to be released and naturally eliminated from the body. The treatment will be injected with a very fine needle that takes about 20 minutes. For optimal results, it will take 2-4 treatments.
Does Belkyra hurt?
Each patient is different however no side effects beyond bruising and swelling from the treatment that will require any recovery time. You’ll be able to walk out immediately after the treatment is over. You should expect minor soreness in the injection spots, some bruising and swelling, but usually not enough that you’ll have difficulty moving your neck or head.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
Most patients will see results after 2-4 treatment, this depends on how much treatment is required as discussed with Dr. Murad. Belkyra treatments are permanent and shortly after a couple treatments you can say bye to your double chin!
Is Belkyra Safe?
Under Dr. Murad, Belkyra treatments are very safe. Through our free consultation, Dr. Murad will discuss your current health and any medications you may be taking and determine if Belkyra is the right fit for you!
