Belkyra or also known as Kybella in the US is available to patients for the treatment of submental fullness or a double chin. Many people with a normal weight have a stubborn fat pad under their chin that will not go away with proper diet and exercise. Belkyra or Kybella is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring deoxycholic molecules in the body. Deoxycholic acid is a salt found in human bile that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once these fat cells are destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. What that means is that once the results are achieved there is no maintenance required.
What to expect with Belkyra: Most patients require two to three sessions each six weeks apart. During the treatment patients can expect to feel a burning or a dull ache within 15-20 minutes of injection. Swelling to the area will be present for up to a week following the injection. Patient’s report seeing results 12 weeks following initial session.
