Belkyra Kelowna

Belkyra™ is the only non-surgical injectable treatment in Canada that improves fullness under the chin. It is a safe, quick and easy in-office treatment that is less expensive than surgical options with minimal downtime.

When injected into the fat under your chin, Belkyra™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Fat cells also do not regenerate, meaning that results are permanent. Belkyra treatment is completed after a single session.

About

Double Chin Treatment Kelowna

Double chin treatment, more formally known as Belkyra, is a deoxycholic acid and naturally occurring molecule in the body. Belkyra  is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also known as “double chin.”  Belkyra assists in breaking down fat cells or adipocytes, thereby decreasing the fullness under the chin.

Patients should also refrain from taking blood-thinning medications or supplements, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, prior to their appointment.

What happens after my Belkyra™ treatment?

After receiving Belkyra, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes as needed. Immediately following your treatment, you are advised to avoid exercise and hot baths. We also recommend avoiding massaging or rubbing the area for 24 hours after the Belkyra™ has been injected. Belkyra does not require downtime, so aside from these recommendations you may return to your normal routine as soon as the appointment is complete.
