What is Belkyra/Kybella?

Belkyra™, known as Kybella™ in the US, is a highly effective fat dissolving injection that eliminates submental fat – also known as the double chin. It’s the first minimally-invasive procedure approved by Health Canada to permanently treat stubborn fat cells, helping to achieve a slimmer chin profile and contour.

How Does Belkyra Work?

Submental fullness can occur for a number of reasons. Weight fluctuations, aging and even genetics can result in accumulation of fat under the chin. Belkyra™ Toronto uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule, to break down and dispose of unwanted fat cells at the treatment site.

Belkyra vs Surgical Treatment

Fat dissolving injections are ideal for women and men who want to get rid of their double chin without going under the knife. A non-surgical alternative to chin liposuction, deoxycholic acid administered through a tiny syringe offers a safer option with less downtime. Another added benefit of fat dissolving injections is a mild skin-tightening effect that occurs due to a boost in collagen production.
