BELKYRA™ (known as KYBELLA™ in the U.S) is a non-surgical procedure for improving the presence and silhouette of submental plumpness—more commonly known as a “double chin,” a facial aesthetic complaint that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. Submental fullness is a common yet undertreated condition that can detract from an otherwise balanced facial appearance leading to an older and heavier look.
BELKYRA™ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring particle in the body that assists in the cessation and absorption of fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, BELKYRA™ causes the obliteration of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or gather fat. BELKYRA™ is administered by injections into the fat under the chin, customized to the personal treatment goals of the patient and the Nurse Injector. Patients should be assessed before each treatment session; this includes ensuring there is sufficient submental fat. The injections take about 30 minutes to complete. Many patient experience noticeable results in two to four treatments, up to six treatments may be needed. Once the desired result is achieved, need for further injections are not expected. There is no downtime, and minimal to no pain after the treatment.
