BELKYRA™ (double chin fat)
BELKYRA™ (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only non-surgical Health Canada approved treatment for improving the appearance of fullness under the chin. This injectable therapy, when injected under the chin, targets and eliminates fat cells. Fat cells are diminished permanently through a series of treatments.
The chin area (or "submental region") can be prone to fullness – that is, collecting and holding fat that is often resistant to diet and exercise. Fullness under the chin or the "double chin" is a manifestation of the foundation of the skin, muscle bone and fat, and is influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. It is a common misconception that a double chin only appears in those who are overweight. In reality, it can occur in any body type.
A double chin can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious appearance. Regardless of a person's age or overall body type, having a loss or lack of definition around the chin profile can lead to a perception of looking older and feeling heavier. If you are bothered by fullness under your chin, a thorough consultation with Dr. Diane Wong can determine if you are a good candidate for BELKYRA™.
