How Belkyra Works
Belkyra’s active ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This molecule is what destroys the fat cells beneath your chin. Belkyra is the first injectable approved by health Canada as safe and effective for reduction of submental fullness (Double Chin).
Rarely will a single injection session achieve ideal results. Instead, Belkyra is injected in a series of appointments – typically between 2-4 appointments – spaced about a month apart. Each injection session melts away a little more fat until desired results are reached.
The destroyed fat cells are processed out of your body just like dietary waste. These destroyed fat cells do not come back. It is possible to accumulate new fat cells, particularly if you gain significant weight. But most people can preserve their results and promote tighter skin contours by maintaining a stable body weight.
