Belkyra™ takes care of the fat accumulation below your chin. A double chin is not only a symptom of those who are overweight, but many people who are of average weight also may have a double chin. Using Belkyra, with the active ingredient of deoxycholic acid (DA), the same chemical substance the body uses to break down fats during digestion, fat is eliminated.
The compound is safe, naturally derived, and has a low risk of adverse reactions. Belkyra eliminates fat cells when injected into the area under your chin. Your chin profile will gradually improve over several treatments. Once you have achieved your desired results, re-treatment is not usually necessary.
Cost varies depending on the amount of treatment needed. The cost is anywhere from $600-1200 per session. Usually, clients need three sessions one month apart. The nurse will make a treatment plan at your consultation including the number of sessions and the projected cost.
Treatment sessions are done one month apart until results are achieved for a maximum of 6 treatments. Treatment usually takes about 30 minutes depending on the number of fat cells needing to be removed.
Maximum of 6 treatments. Effects last for years, and rarely does a client need to be retreated after completing the first treatment.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and numbness during injections.
