If you have ever looked at your chin and thought “I wished it was smaller”, then this may just be the treatment you have been looking for this whole time. Belkyra™ is an acid that is naturally produced in the gut to target fat. It disrupts the cell membranes and when it is injected into areas where we want to reduce the fat, it triggers the body to take away the damaged cells and clear them from the body. It does this through the lymphatic system. In essence, it damages the fat cells and the body clears them from the system leaving behind a reduced number of fat cells in the area.
What is BELKYRA™? It is a naturally occurring acid known as deoxycholic acid.
How does BELKYRA™ work? It damages the cell walls of the local fat cells which leads to the body eliminating them through the lymphatic system.
Is BELKYRA™ right for me? Talk to your injector. There are a few quick in house tests to see if you are a good candidate.
What can I expect from BELKYRA™? The treatment can feel hot. There is swelling in the area which can last for a few months and the swelling can be large. Icing can help reduce the swelling and the duration.
How many treatments of BELKYRA™ will I require? Most people will need 2-4 treatments to achieve their desired results. Talk to your injector to get a clear idea of the number of treatments you may require.
